Ready for the Winter Games

In honor of the Winter Olympics going on in Vancouver this week, here are a couple of my dolls, all set for the those ski trails. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

All suited up and ready for the slopes. With a dandy pair of 1950s-era wooden skis. The other ski pole is around here somewhere, I think.


Ready to ski, too - but we've only got the one set of skis! So she's going to do a little sledding while waiting her turn at the lifts. But I'm not sure those shoes are going to hold up so well in the snow.


Both of these are Ginny dolls, 8 inches tall, and made by the Vogue Doll Company back in the 1950s. The Ginny dolls were my favorite playthings when I was a tiny tot - and although neither of these girls is actually one of my own childhood toys, I still love to play with them.

How cute! Why didn't I think of that?? I have those outfits (the blue and red one I've had since childhood) and could dress a couple of my Ginnys for the Olympics. Good idea!
