Dolly Dimple “Helping Mom”

I had the most wonderful Mother’s Day. It could have been better. I would have loved to have spent it with all of my kids and grandkids. But I definitely got special treatment this year.

I think everyone was glad I was still alive…especially ME. I felt more thankful and appreciative for every little thing. It doesn’t take a whole lot for me.  A note or card, phone call or text...just to know someone cares. But this year I got those and more…roses and gifts.

Thanks to all of those “kids” and grandkids that made my Mother’s Day the BEST!!!

About a month ago, I found this little Dolly Dimple at the thrift store for a quarter.

What do you think?

Is that a big bowl of tapioca?

Good Afternoon Diane, I do hope you are feeling a little better and are on the road to recovery. I am so pleased that you were thoroughly spoilt on Mother's Day as it will have lifted your spirits to have your family around you.
I love 'Dolly Dimple' she is so sweet and her eye lashes are fabulous.
Take care of yourself. I am thinking of you.
Best Wishes to you.

As you, Diane, I am not much one for a lot of attention; however, it is nice to get pampered once in a while. You always find such good thrift treasures.

Hi sweet Diane! Praise the Lord that you are doing better! You have been in my prayers :)

Your little doll is so cute! Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs to you!

Gorgeous color on the rose! Tapioca is a good guess. What else? Creamed corn? Macaroni? Doubt it! Enjoy your treasures!

Oh that makes for a wonderful Mother's Day. Hearing from the kids makes for a great day. Does "a big bowl of tapioca" mean something very good? I'd prefer chocolate pudding. LOL!

Dolly Dimple is adorable, Diane. When I was at the antique store this weekend, I was looking for figurines, but didn't find any as cute as this. It looks like you got some special gifts from your loved ones on Mother's Day. That is one pretty pink rose.

Have a terrific week.

My mother had a Dolly Dimple doll. I must discover what happened to it.

So good that you had a lovely Mother's day and your right.....just to know that someone cares is priceless!

Awww Dolly Dimple would make anyone happy, Diane! What a deal for 25 cents!!! I'm glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. You continue to be in my prayers.

Carla from The River said...

Sweet! So happy you had such a great day.
Now, I have a silly question. I love your new header. And I have seen people fishing like this before, but I just do not understand how they can tell if they have a fish on? What kind do they catch? I have never fished the ocean before, so I might sound kind of dumb.

sandy said...

So happy for you that you were spoiled on Mom's Day! I, too, felt spoiled and had a wonderful day. I was able to spend it with one family of kids and grandkids and my Mom. Hope you are feeling better every day!

podso said...

I'm glad you are feeling better. I had a to go back to read what happened. Wow! What an experience. I'm sure you were very sore after that. I love your new header, it "says" a lot! It sounds like you had a really special mother's day and some people are very thankful for you!

Cranberry Morning said...

Cute Dollie Dimple! She has the same kind of face that I remember my kewpie doll on a stick had (from the county fair) when I was a kid! Hope you are mending fully, Diane. Blessings.
