I knew exactly what Homadarlin was when I saw that name and heard the song in my head! What a darling post and photos, Gretchen. I just love hearing about your childhood and your wonderful, unique family. Homadarlin reminds me of that doll in the weird children's book "The Lonely Doll" -- do you know what I'm talking about?

Stacy Uncorked

I absolutely LOVE that you still have Homadarlin! And I'm still giggling over how she was named... I think you need to post a video of you singing that song just for grins, holding Homadarlin! :)

I love that you have such great memories of your awesome grandmother - she sounds like she was such an amazing woman. I bet Jude is having some awesome memories generated just by virtue of you being his mama. ;) Merry Christmas!

And I'm in!

Oh my, that is so sweet! I love it! Here's mine for the week: http://viewfromdownhere-viewfromdownhere.blogspot.com/2012/12/this-weeks-spin-cycle-is-on-christmass.html

Have a great weekend and merry christmas!

That is so neat that you have a picture of that Christmas! I love it! And the name of your doll is priceless. I can just imagine the look on your parents' faces as you told people the name of your doll. Adoring and laughing all at the same time!

And phew! So glad I wrote for the last Spin of year! In my opinion, you do everything well! OH...and I meant to tell you I made the Chicago Crunchy Cookies...that is the best recipe EVER! And totally just like the ones my Grandma used to make! Now I just need to empty our coffee can to store them in. :)

I knew what Homadarlin meant too - so cute! My first doll's name was Wagons. But I don't have a cute story to tell about it because I can't access my three year old brain & ask her. What the heck!

I still have her too - my mom had her restored for me about 10 years ago :)

I am so very glad to be as dorky as you because this story made me smile. And now Clementine is stuck in my head (and of course I'm saying Homadarlin' REALLY hard.)

I got Homadarlin's name immediately. Ad I knew exactly who your cartoon character was. Yes, I watched a lot of the good cartoons growing up.

Love your memory of your Grandmother, cousins and dolls. Maybe it is just something about us Texas gals but I still have one of my dolls, too. I did make a post about memorable Christmases today. Had out of town guest all last week, so not time for blogging! Link if you wish, otherwise, have a Joyous Christmas and Happy New Year.
