The Happy Couple


Today’s post is probably going to be the last of the “doll series,” mainly because I don’t have any more dolls. This last pair is the oldest and came to our household about 1975 as a wedding gift brought back from Mexico by one of my sisters.

They both look a little bit in shock. The impact of the meaning of the word “lifetime” has just hit them.

After 42 years, her hands are swollen from all the hard work and her feet look sore. He has obviously been tearing his hair out, putting up with her, and his hands and feet are pretty clumpy too.

But they’re still together. They must have something good going on to make them stay.

  1. I love these two. In all the years I’ve been going to Mexico I’ve only brought back two ceramic dolls which are packed away.

  7. Exactly. They are the farthest thing from Barbie and Ken, but that’s my preference anyway.


  8. I really liked this one and plan to head backwards now to see what I missed, dear Anneli. I shall show my Mom over Memorial Day weekend, since she loved her few trips to Mexico with her Spanish students. . . Thanks for the fun thoughts to go with them! xo
