    These are awesome! Thanks for sharing, XXXXX:hug:

    But, what the hell is with all the dolls?? :bug:

    I've always been completely creeped out by dolls, but even moreso by vintage dolls :chair:

    Awesome...love the differences between the rich kids and the poor.


    My mom grew up dirt poor. She would get an orange or a banana and some walnuts.

    My dad, however, got a jeep when he was 12.


    The tree's are beautiful and so bloody dangerous.

    Well done

    My mother grew up really poor too, she never had a doll as a child except for a paper one, luckily her lifestyle improved as she got older and she had a nice life. My father grew up kind of poor, but he lived on a farm so I don't think he was ever really hungry how I think my mother was.

    When she was an adult and I was I got her a cabbage patch doll when that was a craze. She loved it and kept it in the box.

    Now we have 40 year old guys getting super hero figurines, complaining that the Batman cape is the wrong shade of black.

    Damn those pics make you realize how short life is and how this will all be over in a little while. Depressing but beautiful.
