Show and Tell Friday: Dolls from France

My father retired from the Air Force in August of 1967--right before I entered kindergarten. I suppose because he travelled while in the service, he recognized the value of doing so. I have been lucky enough to go to France twice in my life---once in 9th grade and once as a freshman in college. The second time I went we toured through France, including Aix-en-Provence. This is where these dolls came from. They are handmade. (*I loved French so much that it was my second major in college, along with English. I may never go again, but I cherish those memories and pictures.)
