Helping out at an Estate Sale

Oklahoma 017We left Friday morning at 7:00 to go to Oklahoma to work two estate sales. We got to Oklahoma City about noon and they guy I was with did some business. Then we went to a mansion in a gated community. I have never been in a new house that big. It was HUGE!!! The older people who owned the place were scaling way down. We met the dealer and estate seller that I was going to help stage and arrange things. It was just fascinating to see. The breakfast room and kitchen was a little smaller than my whole house. The whole house was built in a U-shape. There were doors and windows everywhere that looked out on to a huge courtyard/patio with a big swimming pool and party area. You felt like you were out in the country on a big estate, but there were houses right next door. Just unbelievable. The house was probably the prettiest house I have ever been in. Wonderful floor plan, and wonderful spacious rooms.  A picture is worth a thousand words, so here are pictures:La 1 Oklahoma 017La 2 La 3 La 4 La 6

      Mama had or still has a doll like that. She was born in 1926. It is a composite style and painted. They seem to crack or craze over time. That’s about all I know. Mama said it fit a certain size baby/toddler clothes.
