This story is true and I feel certain it is one of the reasons that I became a doll artist. For the last five years, I have been creating newborn type baby dolls. The name of my little nursery is Storkland Special Deliveries. Knowing that I love to collect, you will not be surprised that I started collecting antique postcards with storks on them. The postcards date from around 1900 to about 1912, and the artwork is priceless in my mind. I love the art, the colors, the themes, the postmark dates, and many times the message written on the back of the postcard. Loving to decorate for parties, I have used the postcards in various ways for many baby showers and presentations of my dolls.
Note the foot of the stork is rocking the cradle.
I am thinking this card is not as old as some of the others, but cute.
Don't you just love how the mother and father's hands are reaching out to welcome
the new little baby!
In each postcard the stork is always featured so lovingly with the baby.
This is my favorite in the collection! Mrs. Stork appears to be offering her sympathy.

Please, feel free to visit my little website and linger to view some of the dolls that I have created. I could never add pictures all the dolls I have made. The "stork" has visited the nursery numerous times and he and I have become dedicated friends. Luckily, a lot of hands have reached out to buy some of my dolls. The stork and the doll artisit have a bond that hopefully will continue for many more years!
I am so happy you stopped by for a visit and I hope to see you again soon. Please, sign up to follow my blog.
