Retro Road Trip … Dolls
This, as many women of a certain age well know, is Holly Hobbie and her friends.
Now most little girls my age had the oh-so-popular Holly on the far right in her cute little patchwork dress.
I, on the other hand, owned Holly’s not-so-popular friend who is not even in this picture. I owned the doll with the brown dress. Yes, brown.
I had to spend a little time today trying to find out that little brown-dress-doll’s real name. It’s Heather, for those of you who are curious.
Mine wasn’t named Heather. Oh no. It certainly wasn’t.
I dubbed mine with the much fancier, much more fabulous name: Motel.
Yes. You read that correctly.
When I was little, my family really only travelled to my grandparent’s house. But apparently one glorious night, we got to stay in a Motel. I was obviously blown away with the awesomeness that is found in staying away from home in a place that you don’t have to make your own bed when you wake up. And … so that totally warranted renaming poor Heather.
So, this week’s Retro Road Trip Task:
1. Tell us about your favorite doll growing up.
2. Did you have Holly Hobbie or any of her friends?
