  6. I am a follower. You know, I'm not really sure what my favorite gift was. Truth be told, I don't even recall presents. As a child of parents who had a bitter divorce when I was young, holidays were just always emotional messes. Probably more than you really wanted to know, but, sadly, it's all I recall. :/ As a mother of two young children, the best gift I think ever possible is watching the join and wonder of Christmas thought the eyes of a child.

  16. I'm a follower and what a cute bag! I haven't made myself a bag in ages, so this would be NICE to get. I remember playing with these Barbies at my grandmothers house when I was little, otherwise I never played with barbies but I knew these were old and special :-) okay did I insult your age enough?? lol sorry
    My favorite present was a bike, I had wanted one but all the presents were small that year, then the last present was a little pouch with some plastic stuff and an oil can, then my dad gave me the keys to the shed and it was out there!! I cried :-) it was teal and purple and 5 gears!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love your Barbie!! Showing my age here too...my favorite Christmas gift was the first Malibu Barbie and Ken PLUS the Malibu Camper!!! I still have and love them all. We, that is Barbie, Ken and I, must have traveled a million miles in that camper...I lugged them over fields of grass, thru wooded trails, waded streams and brooks , and climbed rocky slopes:) Love the bag and been a long time follower, Happy Christmas Polly!

  19. My favorite gift was a doll house which I received on Christmas morning when I was five. Years later I found out that my father drove hours around western Pennsylvania on Christmas Eve to find it. Thank you, daddy. My father has since passed away but I will always be grateful for that gift.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My favorite Christmas gift was my Shirley Temple doll (which gives away my age). In fact, I wore the first Shirley out and had to get another one for Christmas two year later. Ahhh, Shirley Temple! I still have her in the Heidi costume.

  26. My favorite gift was when I was 12 and my parents got me a brand new full size blue Huffy bike. It was the first ever brand new bike any of us kids, there are six of us, had ever received. My dad fixed the car of the guy who owned the hardware store and got the bike instead of being paid. He rode it home after midnight on Christmas Eve to put it under the tree.

  44. My birthday is close to Christmas so my most favorite memory gift as a child was a "combo" gift from my parents - an organaire. What is an organaire? Well, back then it was what they call a "keyboard" today with legs. It had several different "organ" sound keys and "to this day", it's my fondest gifted memory.

  59. We had the very first Barbie as well. Our dad was killed when we were young and after the burial, we took our Barbie's and buried them in the backyard by the gas tank. We moved away the next year and a few years later our grandfather bought our old homeplace. 20 some odd years later we had him dig around the tank, and sure enough they were still there. He accidentally chopped the head off of one with the shovel digging but the other 2 were in tact.

    My favorite toy would have to be the doll who had the button on her back that made her hair short or long.. You pushed the button and pulled on her hair to make it long... and you wound a knob on her back to make it short. My youngest has my doll now. She is 31 and hopes to have a daughter one day to hand it down to. If not, hopefully my grandson will have a little girl who can play with it.

  60. My daughter saw this bag and thought I was buying it for her.. she's in love with it. Cute dog!!!! Best thing anyone has ever given me when I was 11 was my sewing machine and a tackle box filled with sewing supplies when I was younger..and Heidi the book, love those and still have them.

  87. I know that I am a long time follower- and you are on my blog list too. I love your messenger bag Polly- You do such lovely work.
    Thanks for the chance to win such a pretty thing.
    My favorite Christmas gifts as a child - a watch that I think I still have and my Barbies. I also can tell you - my most memorable one. A microscope that I opened before my mother got home from work after her night shift( she was a nurse). It was a most horrible Christmas because of our early opening of gifts. When things arrive in the mail early- I never open them until the right day. I learned a valuable lesson that day.
    Season's Greetings,
    Anna

  147. That is a beautiful bag. The link to see how you made it is a dead link sadly.

    Oh gosh, if I'm not mistaken that Barbie was released the year I was born or the year before. So yea, I'm not too far behind you in that age thing. LOL

    My most memorable gift as a child has to be my Easy Bake Oven. I just LOVED that thing and used it almost daily. I always made a special treat for my Grandpa every Sunday when he visited for Sunday Dinner. Now I've looked at those ovens for my Granddaughter and don't even recognize them anymore. Now they look like a spaceship or something. LOL

    I am a follower on GFC as well as by email.
    Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season.

  148. My favorite thing as a child was to go to church Christmas Eve. On the way out of church someone handed you a popcornball. When we got got home Santa had filled our stocking with nuts,apples and oranges. I got a hickory dickory dock clock one year that I loved ! I'm following you by email. Cute blog and super cute bag. Thanks a bunch! Merry Christmas!

  150. Probably the best childhood gift at Christmas was a bike with training wheels.

  153. I am really about to disclose my age when I tell you abut my favorite Christmas gift. I was about 8 years old, and my Mom gave me a bride doll that a friend had dressed for me. I still remember the pearls and pearl bracelet!
