Saturday Snapshot: All Dolled Up for Tennis

I know it's a little late in the day for this (almost NOT Saturday anymore), but I've been watching the US Open on TV all day, and thought I'd put up a post about it. But since I'm basically a very lazy person, I decided just to post a couple of photos of one of my Ginny dolls in her vintage tennis outfit. Both doll and outfit date from the mid-1950s and were quite fashionable in their day -- which just shows how much dolls and tennis have changed.


Ginny is about 8 inches tall, and she'd probably have a better chance on the court if she could find some tiny tennies for her footsies instead of those mary janes!

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books, and as she says: "To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online."

  1. The racket is pretty tiny, too. She sure is cute, though :)

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
