Pink Pajama Doll

A few weeks ago I was at a thrift store and my eyes saw this little charmer! She had a twin, but I didn't take her(was I wrong to seperate them? And now she's gone-but I'm trying to control myself!). I don't know what time period she comes from, but I think she's a pajama doll-the kind you put on your bed. She's in perfect condition and I think she makes a great winter decoration since she's all decked out in her fur!

I'm linkin up with Linda http://ljm-alacarte.blogspot.com/ for Garage Saling Friday and Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ for Pink Saturday!~ and a few of my favorite things Saturday at http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com

  4. She's adorable. Doesn't that bug you when you see something, don't buy it, think about it, go back to buy it, and it's long gone! I've done that so many times.

    Wherever you put her will be perfect! Susan

  7. How sweet is that little pink doll! They don't make dolls like they used to. I'm amazed she is still in such good condition. She looks so old and fragile!

  12. I think she's from the 50's, because that's when I saw them and well...I'm a boomer from the 50's!!!

    I noticed when you put the addresses to your parties up, you wrote the whole thingy...If you want to...go up to the icons on top of your blogger window to where it says 'LINK' and after you've written the name of the blog you're linking too, copy their address into the 'link' space and vola!!! Try it, I think you'll like it!!! I hope my directions were okay and not clear as MUD! Let me know if it works! Also, thank YOU so much for visiting my blog and your kind words, I appreciate it lots! Hugs, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  13. My Mom would know more about these kind of dolls.....she sure is cute. I hope her twin found as good of home. Rebecca I have so enjoyed my break. What I have learned for me, is moderation is the key..I am much better now. Now go kiss your hubby and snuggle a bit:)

  14. You are correct it is a pajama bag. The other ladies are also correct, it is from the fifties. I received one for Christmas when I was about seven.

    Wonder what ever happened to it.

    Thanks for visiting my site. I do so appreciate all those that come to call.

  15. Happy Pink Saturday Rebecca Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh what a beautiful share you have today. I remember getting one just like her. It was in the early 60's. I kept it for the longest time, and yes it was a great way to stuff our pj's away until bedtime. I thought it was the greatest thing ever. Like it was so hard to put them in our drawer hu?

    Beautiful share as always. I love to come and see what you have found, and what you are up to. Have a gorgeous Pink Saturday Sweetie.

    Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

  18. I had one just like that when I was a little girl. I got her for Christmas 1961, I put my PJ's in it and she sat on my canopy bed for years. I kept her for a long time. Brings back great memories. Thanks for sharing

  20. I have never seen one of these pajama dolls but it is very cute! Somebody must have really taken good care of it, it is in great shape. That was a real find for a thrift store.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  21. She is so cute! I had a pajama doll when I was a child. Such a fun idea. I too have left things and gone back only to find them no longer there. But someone else is probably as happy as you to have this little pajama doll. I wonder if they belonged to twin sisters? ~ Sarah

  23. She's adorable! And in such amazing shape! I had one very similar when I was little in the early 60's...So I think she's 50's to early 60's. But how could you leave her twin???! Was it because she was "blue" *winks* Vanna

  27. Well you know how sisters can be...they may be happy to have a break from each other after all these years. Who knows? There may be a family reunion in your future.
    Happy PS!

  29. Hi Rebecca...

    Ohhh...seeing your pretty pink pillow/pajama doll brought back sooo many fond memories to me! I used to have one very similar in the early 60's! Yes, we would slip our pj's in the pretty little doll when making up the bed and we were good to go! Hehe! She sure is a beauty...thank you for sharing her with us for Sat. favorites!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design
