Doll Orphans..........

Looks like she is still dripping some water under her chin, from her nice scrubby bath. Must take care of that!

Yesterday Regina,my daughter,and I went up town to take a look see at the Charity Shop and Trading Post. It was such a beautiful day,just being out in the sunshine was a blessing. Mr. Trading Post Man knows I like dolls so, he loaded me with a arm full and told me to take them home and fix them up (his words) .  So I thought,why not...might be fun. I haven't rescue any orphans in a while :)  Orphans they were too.....there were four,and sad to say,but I could only "fix up" the one above. This cute baby doll was made by the  EEGEE Doll Co. ,I'm guessing probably in the 1970's. There is a Cabbage Patch that I will put through a wash as well,and see how she fairs! The other two? One went in the trash..the other I savaged the head. Sounds kinda gory , doesn't it ,but its the truth :)  The Donald Duck bowling pin was a find as well,as were the little vintage,made in Japan, dishes and the wash pan,those I bought from Mr.Trading Post Man!



Below,these two have been with me for a good long while now....I just thought I would show you a little hat I crocheted for my Bonnie,big eyes! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and the weather is warming up where you live,unless of course you like the cold of winter,and I know some of you do :)  It is still a bit chilly here,but the sun is out after a quite a bit of rain we have had lately.

Your little dollies are so sweet and I love Donald Duck! How cute to put the dollie in the dishpan! I mentioned you on my blog this morning! Hope you can stop by soon! Sweet hugs, Diane

Now you are talking my language! Remember Dolly Mama who rescued all the little random dolls of the world? I still have her and most of her children! If postage was not so dang expensive I'd back up all my baby dolls and send them. I could probably buy a airline ticket and bring them to you cheaper!!

I got your letter and I'm mailing you a letter back today.

I love you sooooo much!!!!

The little yellow hat you crocheted for your dolly is too cute! So, are you going to make a lovely hat for your other dolly? :)

It sounds like you've had a good time washing and fixing-up doll babies. You truly are a lover of all things vintage and sweet.

Blessings to you! :)
