Troll, troll where are the trolls

Yesterday The Hubby came into the office and told me that he found something he wanted me to see. We walked back to a storage closet at the back of the shop. While he had been rummaging around in there he stumbled upon a couple of dusty boxes. Written on the boxes, in my handwriting were the words, "Family Pictures and Stuff - Save." I opened the first one to find old business records dating to 1984. Hmmm, have to shred that file. Underneath the file were old pictures of the girls, a couple of vacations, my childhood scrapbook and photo album, The Hubby's prom picture (blech) and a corset that came from my Grandma's stuff I inherited. I thought those things were in my trunk, AT HOME. I spent all afternoon going through old school papers and pictures and got all nostalgic, almost teary-eyed looking at my baby girls. Also, by the boxes was a plastic grocery bag that was full of troll dolls. I don't know if they were B's or A's. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. I may put them on Ebay or I might even trade for them.



Don't forget the giveaway crocheted baby blanket (previous post). Ends on Sunday 7 pm.

Cu-youte! My little sister was into troll dolls. Have you asked A and B if they want them?

OMG! What a trip! I loved that troll that has the cat make-up on her face! and I loved the one that had no outfit with the orange hair. I think some of them were B's but, most were mine. I had a little tiny one with like green hair (if I remember right) that I loved. Lindsay and I colored one of their hair with markers....wow.
I hope you scan those pics in! I'd LOVE to see them!

It's always so much fun to revisit old and beautiful memories. I do remember those troll dolls.

TROLL DOLLS! OH!~
I still have one - the original one with orange hair and no clothes that I had from the I think it was late 60's? I don't have much from my childhood - but that somehow survived!

I love troll dolls *laughing* -- they are so silly... and fun

Those in the photo must be the ones that came out again later? in the 90's or something? I can't remember...
