Here is my submission for the dolly day challenge. Faerie Window asked that for today we submit our favorite doll. The troll is my entry. This doll has been with me since... forever. The reason why I choose this "doll" is that is has a sentimental story. This is the doll I cuddled with at night (ya, it explains a lot). I actually had two. The other half of this ones size. Both went everywhere with me. This red head "Damn It" doll stands about 18 inches tall. I used to spend the night at my grandmothers house and bring along this troll. She used to tuck me in at night and pick up the troll and ask me time and time again, why "this" doll? Then she would laugh. See, she didn't like the troll because in the middle of the night it would fall out of my bed and hit the floor like a brick! She had hardwood floors. Poor grandma would wake up and be frightened thinking something was wrong. But it was only me and my troll.
The other two that stand beside the red head are some pieces I picked up probably from that auction site. Although not of sentimental value they do bring me a smile. They both get top billing in my cabinet of curiosities :)
