A few days ago, I posted this little scene that I put together using a vintage gown and Grandma Mae's baby shoes. The wood frame that the dress is on is from a baby shop in Kingman. It was what I had at that time.
So then I bought all these dolls, and this one just happened to fit into the dress as though it was made for her!
She's a turn of the century Armand Marseille doll 390, 26" tall - porcelain, with rocker eyes. She did not have any hair, so I cleaned up and curled this vintage human hair wig. She has a very old wood composition jointed body is pretty good shape for it's age.
I added some silk ribbon around a new hat - from Creative Impressions. Used vintage flowers. Draped some tiny pendants around her neck.
There are a lot of things I need to do to really fix her up and get her in mint condition, but for now, she can just sit on the dresser. What a cutie! And she just happened to have red eyebrows that match the red wig perfectly!
I don't know the history on her, but I have to wonder who owned her, and how on earth could anyone part with a doll this sweet? Of course, she wasn't quite this sweet when she came to me. I will have to start taking some "before" photos. I paid $40 for her....so you can imagine how terrible she looked!
She's found a new home with me. Now to figure out a name for her. Why do I think she looks like a "Lindy"? Could it be because I had a grade school chum named Linda who had red hair? Or does she look more like a "Maggie"? Going to have such fun naming all my "new" children!
