It has been a very difficult summer, not just weather wise, which has just been plain disappointing, but with other things as well, so quite a bit of 'dolly therapy' has been going on over the last few weeks.
Whilst I have been good and rehomed about 30 dolls and probably about 10 miscellaneous toys over the last couple of months a few newbies have arrived as well! My Makies being the predominant ones, with the final two still to arrive.
I had the opportunity of rescuing a Schoenhut 'waif' who needed a new home.
She arrived late last week - not sure if it is her original wig, but it shows what she is missing...yes you may have spotted it...
Her right ear! Goodness knows what happened - perhaps some naughty sibling of her child owner at some stage in her past.
The dress is sweet though and she wanted to keep her dress.
I hunted through my wig box and found one that fitted her, and she already looks much happier.
She is also missing her right thumb. I am hoping to try and repair these at some point.
This girl is a different size again. I thought she was going to be the same size as Anne-Marie but she is actually inbetween her size and Peggy Sue's and even better she fits Sasha shoes! This is an added bonus as I was able to find her a pair of shoes and socks that fitted and also suited her dress.
Her name is Vanessa.
She couldn't wait to go out into the garden with Peggy Sue
I think they were supposed to be picking up leaves...
But they weren't really dressed for it. They have collected a nice array of colours though.
Peggy Sue picks up her favourite to show her.
They enjoy their time out in the garden getting to know one another and seem to be firm friends already.
