Show and Tell - Princess Diana

Kelli at There's No Place Like Home http://www.kellishouse.blogspot.com/ is hosting Show and Tell each Friday. Today for my Show and Tell I'm sharing my Princess Diana dolls. Today is the anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. I'm also sharing a few tributes to her. After the tributes to Diana and to Mother Teresa, you'll see more of my yellow glassware that I shared on last week's Show and Tell. Thanks, Kelli, for hosting Show and Tell! I love this Princess Diana doll and the dress she is wearing.

She called this her "Elvis dress!"


Below is my Madame Alexander Princess Diana doll. She is nine inches tall.


My daughters loved Princess Diana! They set the alarm to get up at about 4:30 a.m. to watch Diana's wedding on TV! I too became a Diana watcher over the years and was saddened by the tragic events in her life.

She was beautiful, sweet, and gracious. It's sad that she's gone, especially for her boys that she loved so much.

Myrna said...

Beautiful dolls! she was a lovely, elegant lady whose life had some very sad elements. Her death at such a young age was tragic.

Great dolls...I like the top one best...such a spitting image of the real Princess Di! [I did a tribute to Diana this week too, just below my show n tell entry]

Happy weekend.

I love dolls and your Princess Diana dolls are just lovely.

I too got up early to watch the royal wedding. Who knew that in a few short years how much heartache would this family would suffer.

I loved Princess Di when I was young (I was a very young mother when she died). I remember gazing at picture books, studying everything about her as a teenager, trying to "find" my style and fit into my skin! The dolls and their dresses take me back...
Thanks for sharing,
Jen

Oh, these are beautiful!

I remember her wedding, too...I think I saw the re-broadcast later that day, though! Diana and I were close in age and I always thought she had the perfect life...but little did we know how very sad she was most of the time, nor that she would leave us so soon!

Thanks for sharing these collectibles with us on this special anniversary!

(And thanks for stopping by my show and tell earlier, too!)

Anita said...

Oh my, I am shivering as I read your S&T and Princess Diana Tribute! I still remember the wedding day, too and I watched it on TV. I was 9 years old at that time! And when I heard of her death 10 years ago, I could not believe it!

So it seems as if she was and still is as popular and famous in the US as in Europe?

Best wishes from Germany,
Anita

Marci said...

Very nice dolls. Yes, there were lots of sad incidents in her life. I can't imagine having to live a life that public.

Retha said...

The death of mother Teressa adn of Dianna was again an example of what happens in life.
Mother Teressa was hardly remembered at the time.

Kelli said...

Your Diana dolls are beautiful. What a lovely tribute to a special lady.

I came to your blog on Friday a couple of times but was unable to leave a comment.....

Your Diana doll is lovely....I watched her wedding also. I've always been fascinated with her I think because of her love for the common people and the love she showed for her sons.....

Thank you for visiting me....please come again....Betty

Beautiful tribute, Katherine. I love the dolls.

Karen said...

Such a beautiful tribute to Diana and Mother Theresa. I was up in the wee hours watching the wedding, too! I loved the doll in the Elvis dress. I remember seeing it advertised. I'm not a collector, but it was something I wanted to buy just the same.
