...continued from two weeks ago, and last Friday. The conclusion of my Troll Collection [some 30+ dolls]:

Another of my Halloween Trolls skinned with tattered clothes and black hair. You realize Halloween is a favorite in our house? LOL

Another holiday Troll...this time, Easter. In her Spring Jumper outfit, with paint brush in one hand and decorated Easter egg in the other...decked out in a pink hair bow too!
A dude from Sherwood Forest! Yes, none other than Robin Hood! All decked out in his green satin tights and leather boots. Topped off with his medieval, renaissance tri-cornered hat.
He was a right jolly ol' troll, dressed in red and when he laughed his belly was like a bowl full of jelly! Hi Santa!! Whad'ya bring me?
Of course this section is my Patriots! First, the USMC Corporal Erik...Infantry Division...Camp Pendleton! He's in camouflage khaki's, and going out on maneuvers on his tour of duty!!
What could be more patriotic than "Besty Ross" Troll? She's readying to sew up a flag of the Red White and Blue, gussied up in her July gown. I love her hair!! So American!!!
This one is the smallest of the small trolls! If you notice to the top right side of this photo the small baby boy troll that is about an inch and a half in size...this one Pilgrim is even SMALLER!! In comparison, about the size of an adult thumbnail.
Meet the Bobbsie-Topsie troll twins. Or are they Gemini? Who knows. Only their hairdresser knows for sure. They were sold together. I thought it was a cute idea!
The last It's my 'ma and pa', grannie and gramps trolls! Gray hair, cane and vintage style clothes from way back...
These two in this frame are a gift from my father when he was widowed. How else could I end the showing of my troll collection other than something my father bought, as it too was how the beginning of the collection came to be.

...~The End

    I must have been busy yesterday because I never miss your posts, but did catch up and the sheers look wonderful. I can see they let a lot of light into the living room.

    Love your troll collection and it's great that you have those that your father bought for you. Treasures. Things that can never be replaced.

    The cat that Bud is feeding looks like it's in great condition now. I wish people wouldn't put animals out on the street.

    Take care and enjoy your weekend. Talk atcha soon.
