Sharon Sears: Hi Betty, I have often visted your website and love seeing all of your doll scenes. My friend Carolyn, has your website listed on her Ginny site and I just had to visit! I too love and collect Ginny, Muffie, Wendy, and Ginger dolls. Seeing your childhood pictures brought back so many wonderful memories for me, thank you for posting them! I have the Bratz Retro Cafe too and I was wondering if you could share with me how to make the diner booth? Thanks a bunch and keep posting your AWESOME doll scenes! Best to you and your family, Sharon

Sandi: Hi Betty I stumbled on to your pictures here and have enjoyed going throuh all the albums. I love Ginny and recently joined the "Ginny" yahoo groups. I had seen picture on Carolyn's site of you and your sister when you were small with a kitchen set you had received from Christmas. I especially enjoyed viewing your childhood Christmas. Your father and mother appear to be so loving to you and your sister. It brought back so many childhood rememberence for me. I need to dig our my childhood photos. I really enjoy my time here. Hope to communicate with you also through the yahoo doll group Blessings Sandi

Mary Hatt: Betty, I enjoyed your pictures so much. I still have my childhood dolls and furniture. I am setting up four displays in a glass case now. I am having so much fun. I see that you have quite a few boy dolls. I am having trouble finding clothes and or patterns to make clothes for the boys. I have two repro Ginny boy dolls as I have twin grandsons. Thanks so much for sharing ! Regards, Mary

barbara cassell: Hi Betty, I was just checking out things on Picture Trail and found your great pictures. I love the old Christmas pictures and especially the dolls. I still have some of mine and really treasure them. Mine are from the 40's. I have a small Christmas album, but plan to add more. MY albums are mostly 50's memories. Hope you check it out. Thanks for sharing with us.

Sparroweye/Candy Pfau: ps, How rude of me not to include my email address. I was born in 1946 in Miami. My first boyfriend Bobby Blanchard moved back to New Jersey and broke my heart. I had many Ginny dolls but sadly not a one survived.

Sparroweye/Candy: I love your photographs of your dolls growing up. We came from the same era. I had a two different Betsy Wetsys, one with real hair and one bald. Then later I had my first Madame Alexander bride doll. My mother made all the Betsy Wetsy doll clothes. The last doll I requested was Pitiful Pearl but my mother refused as she said I was too old. I am still mad at her for that. You can view my family photographs at I do not like all these Myspace people coming in to Picture Trail.

Mary from Texas: I found your "Ginny" doll site because my very own "real" Ginny (my 21 yr old "baby"), is having a baby in June and led me to her Website and then I saw your "Ginnys". Personally I love my Ginny very much, but didn't even know there was such a thing as Ginny dolls, or I would have been collecting them for 21 yrs now, too bad. My Ginny is having a boy, so I guess it will have to be something "Manly" that I collect for him, don't even know what little boys are playing with now. Thank you for the look at the "Ginnys" I didn't get to play with and try to visit my Ginnys website, it will thrill her to see that I was not the ONLY visitor.

Cathryn Peters: Hi Betty! Imagine that, finding your lovely baskets here on your PictureTrail album while surfing around on the member view lists! Remember when you sent me the Monkey Business basket on the AOL basket board swap years ago? I still have it and will treasure it forever. Now I have to go back and look at the rest of your albums to see what you have been up to. Take care and stop over on my PictureTrail too sometime or my website Miss hearing from you and the gang on the Board! The Wicker Woman/Cathryn Peters

classicsstrings: I too had two darling Ginny dolls. Foolishly I gave them away to the daughter of a friend. It was a mistake. I think she really wanted a brand new Barbie. I did keep many of my dolls and now am selling many of them on eBay. Though they were packed away for many years it has given me great delight to display them here. Blessings~ O;-)*

Tony: Hi Betty, Your Ginny Doll brings back many fond memories. I also grew up in the 50's and my aunt worked for the company that made the Ginny Doll. Needless to say, my younger sister had every one of them. I remember them to this day, hanging on her bedroom walls. They were passed down to other family members through the years and hopefuly still exist in someones trunk. Take care of her.
