Sweet Vintage Finds

I’ve been working on a post about buying homely, weird stuff and what do I end up buying lately but more sweet, pretty things. Oh well. They’re good too! First let me say I normally don’t buy dolls. I see them in the same vein as clowns and African masks…kinda creepy. But when I spotted…
