and new pics of Gene, who will always be my favorite doll.
Gene was the first doll my mother and I really enjoyed together! Mom loved the clothes (especially from the 1940s and 1950s) and, for five years until she left us in October 2000, she gifted me with a Gene doll for my birthday and Christmas. Those dolls remain with me and will be passed on to others in my family later on.
Love seeing old (and new) online friends here as well and hope to get back into taking some pics sometime soon. In the meantime, I enjoy seeing the efforts of others who do take time to share their wonderful pics.
Hugs to all,
