Mary Poppins

Can you believe the fabulous Disney film "Mary Poppins" is fifty years old?
The movie was released in Los Angeles  on this date in 1964 (according to IMDB.)
I can honestly say that I have loved it all of these fifty long years! Does that prove that I'm a fan?
 You can believe it.
I just found this Mary Poppins doll a couple of weeks ago at a thrift store.
 She's missing her stockings and her hat, so I borrowed a hat from another doll for her to wear, so she'd at least have something!
I was glad she had her little carpet bag.
I stuck the little umbrella in just for fun:
I've written about my love for Mary Poppins more than once on this blog. I've had all of my books and most of my records, music, etc. for quite some time.
 But "Let's Go Fly A Kite" is a more recent addition to my collection:
Here are a couple of photos of dolls in somewhat better condition than mine - she even has Michael and Jane by her side, here - ready for another delightful outing, no doubt:

And here she has a (damaged) hat, and a parasol - but no carpet bag.

My doll again, without her coat:
She looks rather pensive in the picture above, don't you think?
Perhaps she is thinking of how she will soon need to move on, and leave the Banks family.
Come along now, let's get on with our day.
"Spit spot!"

What a great find. Your doll is very pretty. I am glad she didn't lose her carpet bag! I think I will go fly a kite now... Love T
