I have this grouping hanging on an old upright wooden closet. It is an old store tie display. The little pink plaid dress is from around the turn of the century and when I bought it, there were several with the same style, just varying sizes from teeny to around 8 years old. I guess the mom bought one bolt of fabric and made all the girls in the family the same dress. Also, the little hat still has the original label on it called Peggy, my first dolls name. If you click on the first pic, you can see the orange plastic birds on either end of the tie rack. Those are clothes pins. I have never seen any like them and got them recently at the flea market. Their tails pinch in.

    I´m sorry about the language. I tried with many traslator, but they does not work :(

    Greetings from Santiago de Chile.
    I love your litle orange birds.

    I´m sorry for my poor english.

  2. Maria, your English is perfectly wonderful; my Spanish is limited to about 5 words. I will see what I can find out about translators and hola to you.
