Beautiful bright morning at Antiques by the Bay

Was in a window shopping sort of mood…

Loved this little vintage doll with the bright eyes…

the rough old linen body…

Saw several stands with groupings of vintage dolls …

Echoes of all those happy childhood tea parties…

I enjoyed talking to some vendors…

several have websites or emails and are

willing to ship items…

Beautiful teal blue panels…

painted flowers, birds and butterflies….
