Just Saying

In these "modern" days of email, texting, tweeting, internet, video chat and gosh knows what else ...


Wouldn't it be a whole lot more charming to get one of these in the mail?


They held a little card where the sender could send their message to the lucky recipient.


I think they make a rather cute trio.


Marked Western Union Dolly.  These are from the 1970's.  Which one is your favorite?

You think you have seen everything and then something new pops up. Cute find and a nice nod to the old way of communication!

What a great find - high five!! I have never seen/heard of these before and the condition looks perfect. I like the one that is looking down with the long eyelashes.

How perfectly adorable! I can just see an aunt sending one to her niece back in the day. I loved receiving surprise birthday packages in the mail when I was little. So much fun! I love the shy birthday girl :) Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing, Holly

All are my favorite! I can see giving each one to a different person. Adorable! Definitely better than an email or text!

Thanks for sharing :)

These are just the cutest things; someone should make them, I know people would buy them. I never saw them in the 70s.

I've never seen them before either, Danielle. They are adorable, and I think I like the sweet smile of the one dressed in blue. Cute!

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

My word but they are cute! I've never seen them before and would have to say all 3 are equally cute!

Corey Moortgat said...

Oh my goodness! I had that one on the left side when I was a kid! I'd forgotten all about it until I saw your post! I wonder who sent it to me?

LBP said...

Oh My Heavens! They are the cutest things ever! They wouldn't be too hard to re-create! Thanks for sharing!
