I was just telling my friend that I should show my Raggety Anns. I only have 3! But they are very pretty. And I love your husband globe collection. Now that is different and I really like the shelves to display them.

You have two great collections going. I have one Raggety Ann from 34 yrs. ago. She's in good shape.
I love the idea of collecting globes. Where did he get them all?

Looks like your hubby has a few old bank globes too. I have on from the 50's It is neat. I have a sweet story about Raggdy Ann too. When our little boy was born, he had a little red "strawberry" birth mark on his forhead. Our daughter, age 4, colored a little red mark on her Raggdy Ann so she would match her little baby brother. It made me cry and cry.

Wonderful collections, and I know you must enjoy them.

Both collections are very complete. It must be interesting to examine each one.

I'm so impressed with the globe collection. I've never seen one before and I love old maps. The raggedy Anns are nice too, but I love the globes!

You have a lot of Raggety Anns! I love RA's. Nice globe collection of your DH's as well.

What great collections! My son loves globes, and he would be very envious to see all of your husband's.

I am so glad to see someone else who cares about the hymns and how important they are to our spiritual heritage.

You have quite an impressive collection of Raggedy Ann's! I love the antique globe collection too. My husband taught geography and world studies for 40 years. He would love your husband's collection!

Neat collections! My mother collected Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and have two very large ones. I think sis and I sold them at her estate sale --- I wish I hadn't, but we were overwhelmed at the time.

Thanks for sharing!
