I know I’m not supposed to post this until tomorrow but, as most of you already know, I am an overachiever. At any rate, I chose my childhood doll for Vintage Thingies Thursdays this week.
I guess she isn’t technically vintage because I got her in 1982, but that’s 26 years so I hope it counts. My parents bought her for me at a Village Inn Restaurant in Kentucky when I was about 4 years old and I named her Spoon. From what I am told, I carried her around a lot. I don’t know why I named her Spoon – probably for the same reason I had 4 imaginary brothers named Sock, Dock, Kirk, and Cheese. My first bus driver (the next year) was named Janet, but I could never remember the name Janet and always wanted to call her Spoon.
I recently found Spoon residing somewhat lonesomely (is that a word?) at the bottom of my daughter’s closet (I had “cleaned out” that closet before my kid was born, but I did a crummy job of it). My kid wasn’t very interested in Spoon, so I made a shadow box with some 1980’s-ish looking paper and chipboard letters. Spoon measures about 4″ wide by 6″ tall and now resides on top of my television cabinet.
