This is my new little dolly. Isn't she the sweetest? Not sure if you knew this about me but, I love dolls...What can I say, I am still a little girl at heart. She was my Valentine's Day gift from my hubby.
However this is not what she looked like when I first got her. This is not what she looked like when she first won my heart...
She has been cleaned up, her dress and undergarments have been washed, mended and pressed and her little body has been re-strung...I still need to work on her little mohair wig though.
I found her at a thrift store. Wanna hear something super silly? When I first picked her out of a bin full of random toys and saw the disheveled state she was in well, it touched me so much it actually moved me to tears...Silly huh? Well needless to say when my hubby saw me crying like a big baby and cradling the doll in the middle of the store he said, "You're not leaving her behind." He knew I had connected with this dirty little doll and there was no way he was going to let me leave her behind.
This is how she looked when I first found her. Unfortunately the black velevet trim was so old it just fell apart when I hand washed it.. I was only able to salvage the bow from the back that is now on her hair but, other than that everthing else cleaned up really well.
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
Wishing you all a wonderful day.
Hugs and Kisses,
