So I still have to catch up before I am back to normal.For yesterday's post I am backing up to the Friday before last,to show you the yard sale haul I made that day,and concentrate on one doll I got that day.Here's the big load.
|Some DVDs and some vintage kid's books.|
A vintage My Friend Becky doll,some records,and a Fancy Nancy doll.
|A Poppin' Fresh doll,a... Dawn? dress,a vintage flocked deer,the October angel,an Edward Gorey book,a really pretty old book called "The Bab Ballad",A pizza troll, and a really nice chair that's also a storage box.|
|A Strawberry Shortcake piano and a Nickelodeon "Doug" doll.|
|More vintage books and some mini Disney Princess things.This beautiful Mother Goose book from the 1930's,illustrated by Willy Pogany, may be my favourite thing I got that weekend.|
|That pieman looks pretty creepy.|
Here's a closer look at the Dough Boy and friends.
|A Bitty Baby stroller and a smocked baby dress.|
|There's that Becky again.|
|An 18" doll desk,chair, and accessories,shoes, boots,(Some how I lost a pink boot on the way to the car.|
|Here's that pile of clothes for 18" dolls again. They include Dolly & Me,Battat,Our Generation,and others. There's also a Bratz tent and some CDs.|
|Some Holly Hobbie pillow shams.|
|A vintage tablecloth.|
|She was wearing an ugly 90's real baby outfit. When I got her home I took it off her and found that she was wearing her original onsie. I'm sure hse got to keep it because it can't be removed.|
|She has a sweet face. Unfortunately someone has tried painting rosy cheeks on her, and then removed them. Looks like they wouldn't come off all the way.|
|They got almost all of the paint off on one side.|
She has some amazingly coloured eyes.I'm not sure if this is the original colour,or if they have changed over the years. They are a beautiful shade of bluey green, plus they have brown highlights.
She also has some smokey eyeshadow.
She has all her eyelashes, and her sleep eyes work perfectly.
There is some white discolouration which you can see here on the side of her face.It's also that way on her amrs and legs.
She has little teeth, and a felt tongue.
|When I looked at these pictures I noticed that apparently they painted her lips too.You can see the original pink around the edges.|
She has some glue discolouration around her ears.
When I pulled the sides of her hair back I could see the way her wig is sewn.
|This side needed retucked to match the other side.|
Her hair is a pretty colour,and her wig is in very nice condition.
That's quite a part in her hair.
She has long pigtails.
She has a crier that still works.
See those white speckles?
It's to bad, but she has a finger broken off both hands.
She has probably been a walker,but it doesn't work anymore.
She has a metal rod that runs from her legs up,so I'm guessing that is a walker mechanism.
I got the high chair at the church sale too,for another dollar.Maybe it has been hers all these years?
Her head doesn't move when her legs are moved.
Here's the way her legs are attached.
As you can see, when I got her home I reattached her arms with the big rubber band that was already on the hook of one of them.
Those little wings on the arm and the lump inside the arm hole mean that nher arm can move, but with limited motion. They can only go back this far,
And they can only go up this far.
She has no markings of any kind.She's 22" tall.Does anybody recognize her?
I wish I knew a safe way to remove the paint. I'm afraid of melting the plastic with nail polish remover/acetate. Anybody have any good advice?
Well,I'm almost caught up now! Still one more day to go before I am though.
