|Nothing wrong with Gerber Baby's eye,just a flash reflection.|
Remember when I blogged here about the things I found at the Salvation Army Ladies Auxiliary sale? These are two of the dolls I found. The Gerber Baby, and the sweet little girl to the far right. She is a doll by artist, Bessie Pease Gutmann. The doll in the middle was given to me recently by a friend. She is a Vogue doll,and was wearing her original clothes,but I decided to dress her in this little vintage handmade dress after cleaning her. I also redressed Gerber Baby in a handmade Swiss Dot fabric vintage dress.
The wooden doll out front is my version of "Tottie" from the Doll House . She was once a faceless angel! I just took off her wings, painted her hair in black,and gave her a face,then added a little apron around her waist.

Can you see the likeness in the face of my doll and this Bessie Pease Gutmann print?
I guess,I shall never grow out of my love for dolls....I'm hopeless!
