My Daughter's Shirley Temple Collection

I am still in Florida with nothing to do and I am a little bored so I thought I'd join in "Three or More" fun which is hosted by Tam at http://gypsycorner.blogspot.com/. Please visit her and all the other participants so you don't get bored either.

Last weekend when we visited my daughter, Tina, in Cape Coral, I went in their home office and decided to rearrange her furniture. While still planning where to put what, the other people who went fishing came home and it got busy, so I did not get the chance to do it. Anyway, I saw these Shirley Temple figurines that I collected for her when she was a little girl so I took pictures of them. They are sitting in her curio cabinet in their office.

My sister gave this to her one Christmas and that started the collection.I found this on Ebay so I bought it for her and gave it to her one Christmas. It is even signed by Shirley Temple herself.
Then, my sister gave this to her again on another Christmas.
And finally, I found this again. It is also signed. This is giving me an idea. I should start looking for the others and I can save them for her future Christmas presents. I wonder if there are any more. Each of them represents a movie that she starred in.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my daughter's Shirley Temple collection. Thanks for coming and thanks, Tam, for taking the time to host the event.

When my daughter was 3 years old, her hair curled the same way Shirley's did. She was so cute.

It's me again! I'm playing catch up! I loved your pics of St. Thomas! My husband and I have been to St. Croix. The Virgin Islands are so beautiful! And then I caught more of your beautiful pieces from your auction! You truly have a wonderful DH! Mine wouldn't be caught dead telling me just to get whatever I like! We'd probably have to call a moving company! (LOL)

Such a fun collection! Each so darling. My Mother took me to a beauty parlor to have my hair permed so it would curl like shirley temple's...I was only 4! Of course they burned it (back in the day..scary chemicals!) So I turned out looking like alfalfa. haha!

What a sweet collection.I love those old black and white Shirley Temple movies and I still cry when her daddy comes back from the war! I still touches me even when I am now 59!

Loved the Shirley Temple figurines. I'm old enough to have vague memories of Shirley & her movies. Thanks for bringing up cute memories. BTW, I would love to see your charm bracelets. Sally

Christine-I did not even realize there were Shirley Temple figurines. They are beautiful! I have my mother's Shirley Temple doll, mine, and one I bought from a collector for my daughter when she was small. They are very special to me. Thanks for sharing these. Hope you are enjoying Florida!

Linda said...

Christine, I grew up on Shirley Temple movies. My mom loved them and made sure that we saw all the re-runs. I even have some of her videos. She is a favorite of mine, so I really enjoyed your daughter's collection! Wonderful! Linda

Cindy said...

What a very sweet idea for a collection. Tina obviously adores the figurines as she displays them still. I think it would be nice to continue the gifts. She can then pass them down to her daughter(s) someday. Oh, and signed figurines! How cool! They are probably worth some $$. They are all very beautiful!

xoxo

Hey there Christine! I had you on my mind so decided to stop in for a visit.
I really like this adorable collection of Shirley Temple figurines. I also LOVED all of her movies when I was a little girl. In fact my Mother named me after Shirley Temple's daughter who was born the year before I was... Linda Susan! So now you know. lol
Take care sweetie! Big hugs to you too!
Sue

Suesue said...

A correction, Christine - Shirley's daughter was born in 1948 - I was born in 1952! So now you know how old I am too! :)(and forgetful)

xinex said...

Hi Linda Sue!...lol! I am so glad you stopped by. It's ok for me to know your age cause I am always going to be 2 years older than you. I have always missed you, my friend!..Christine

What a fun collection and hopefully there are more for you to add to her collection.

Growing up, I loved all the Shirley Temple movies.
