Renwal dolls, they look so creepy, don’t they? But at the same time they are SO pretty as well! The photography, by ForgetMeNotVintage; the shop on etsy which sells these vintage dolls, is truly outstanding. The pink doll is neatly placed on a chair, and we can see that she sits in a wallpapered room, the yellow child is also portrayed in a masterly way. We, at Mimi Berlin, don’t want the dolls, we want these photo’s! #auchhaben
The Bouvier sisters are; Jacky Kennedy-Onassis and Lee Rafdziwill, they are both deceased. In their lifetime they really were top-notch socialites. The photo below is made by Sir Cecil Beaton in 1951, captured for Vogue Magazine. It marks the start of their adult ‘career’ in high society. The picture is taken before (during, or at) their Debutante Ball. A Debutante ball is an official party were boys and girls from royal, aristocratic or upper-class families are introduced as marriage material, at around age sixteen to eighteen.

This image caught our eye the other day. The airplane turned out to be a Catalina ‘Landseaire’ Boat Yacht from the 1950s. When you click the link you’ll find out that airplanes were used and promoted in a very different way than today. Make sure to clickety click! (vintagewings.ca)One of the finest selling features of the Convair PBY Landseaire was no doubt the observation blisters. Not since the airship Hindenburg did passengers enjoy such a remarkable view of the world around them. Photo: Loomis Dean, LIFE Magazine
