Last year around this time I bought a 1940s bisque doll at an antique shop and posted about her on my blog. Finding Libby led me to successfully search out the collection of bisque dolls that my sisters and I had as children. I'm planning to photograph all of them over time and add them to my vintage photography postcard collection. Rita Sue (above) is the first beauty in the series. Alice fell in love with her too!

{for fellow fans of the series Carnivale – you may have noticed that Libby and Rita Sue are named after two of my favorite characters from the show.}


I thought I'd share one of the songs that I've been listening to quite a bit lately. It seemed to be a sweet match for these photos of Libby. She's a 'Peg O' My Heart' bisque doll, made by the K & H company in Santa Clara, Calif in the 1940s. I found her last week while searching for vintage textiles for my shop and I just can't bear to part with her.

the song is:  We Just Couldn't Say Goodbye performed by the Paul Whiteman Orchestra & Mildred Bailey, 1932.
