Spring...No! Wait! Winter! And a Famosa Los Barriguitas Doll

  The Spring was here,but it has tucked it's tail between it's legs and let Winter back in, for a while at least. Yesterday the weather was warm and sunny. I popped outside and took photos of a doll and picked up trash that had blown into my yard. (That makes twice this Spring.) Today I got up early and my friend Lori and I headed to Kentucky to pick up the horse trailer we couldn't bring home last time because she had the wrong  hitch. It was fairly warm when I left home this morning,but it quickly became overcast. (I did mention that it rains everywhere I go.) By the time we got home this evening it was COLD,and quite foggy. When I got home it was 39 degrees Fahrenheit.
  So here is a picture of my very Springy daffodils, which will probably be wilted and covered in snow tomorrow morning!


And here is the doll I photographed yesterday,in the little purple flowers that grow on the ground cover vines around my yard.


She's made by Famosa. According to readers she's a Los Barriguitas doll. I do think they are right.




She measures about 5 1/2" tall.


She's jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips. She was a Goodwill find a while back.


She has a cute face. Her arms are sort of elephantine though.


She seems to be wearing her original clothes,but no shoes.



I like her big eyes and cute smile.


If anybody knows who she is, please let me know.



Who knows how long until we have another sunny day!

  1. Very cute doll. She seems to come from a line called Los Barriguitas. I did not see one dressed like yours.

    1. I do think you're right,although I couldn't find one dressed like this either. These do seem to be her original clothes though.

  2. Think she is a Los Barriguitas doll in an older style. Can't be too old because this style still shows up in Amazon uk searches. Newer ones have much flatter stylised painted faces. There were heaps of accessories and playsets for them. Couldn't find out much more because my phone is flatly refusing to translate anything for me.

    1. Strange. What's she doing here? You seem to be right though.

  3. Now, that's what I call abroad smile! She seems to be very happy among the flowers.
    And your daffodils are (were?) beautiful! The ones here are already gone.

    1. My daffodils at the side of the house bloomed, and are still there,since it didn't get as cold as it was supposed to. The ones at the back along my sidewalk,never bloomed at all. I usually blame it on the shade from the dogwood tree and the lilac bushes,but they haven't gotten leaves yet this year.

  4. All the local toy shops have these little dolls and her family, and they have cute little vehicles and other interesting stuff...but no, I leave them there as I don't want yet another type of doll coming here! I have no space as it is!

    1. That is a common complaint in this hobby!
