My "Rescue"

I have loved dolls ever since I was a little girl. A few times I have made dolls as gifts, and when it came time to give them away, it always tugs on my heart strings. Yesterday I was at our local thrift shop and found this very pretty 18-inch doll. Her hair was all tangled and dusty. She didn't cost much, so I bought her and brought her home. Then I carefully washed, conditioned and combed out her hair and let it dry.

Today I made a new dress for her. I will keep her until I find a young girl who will give her a loving home. :)

  2. 18" is as tall as my american girl doll!

  3. :) Yes, Isabel, this is a sort of American Girl Doll wannabe. :)

  4. You are so great! You are so good at turning worn into new. Thanks for that!

  5. She is beautiful and you are so sweet to rescue her. Carmen is right. From orphan to princess.

  6. She's beautiful! Thankyou for saving her, they don't make them like they use too!

  7. How nice you all are. I have now found her future home... with our youngest granddaughter. I just need to find a mailing carton. I made a blanket and another dress to send along as well. This little girl is nearly 3, and she wants so much to play with her oldest sister's American Girl doll. Hopefully, the "princess" will please her just as well.
