My Button

The above picture is similar to my button.  This doll was my Mom's.  My father gave it to her back in the 1950's when it came on a Heart Shaped Valentine's Day Chocolate Candy box from Fannie Mae.  They use to make these heart shaped boxes with all kinds of things on the lids.  From jewelery to cute little romantical toys such as this doll.  Mom use to put it out every year at Valentine's and Christmas (because she had red on), and her little Rudolph guy too!  So, I just thought you'd like to know the story behind my logo, and my name.  Christmas Dolly was so long that I wanted it to be unique in some way thus XmasDolly was born.  I've been using that name for years now every since e-mail came out! 

So, there ya go!  Just a little tid-bit for you and a history lesson in how XmasDolly and her logo came about!  Have a great weekend everyone, and don't forget about "MONDAYS' MUSIC MOVES ME"!  This week's theme is your favorite Halloween tune!

That's special! I wondered where your "name" derived from. The treasures are important memories in our lives, aren't they?
