here is the other doll i made for the "beat the winter blues" doll swap, for my bud in Oregon, Sammy http://sammystuff.blogspot.com/ (stop and say hi to her, she's had the flu forever!) anyway, she emailed to say that dolly had arrived and her sweet hubbie helped her open the big box. I rescued the doll from a thrift store. she seemed cute with potential once i removed her most hideous outfit and gave her a sweet little haircut! her dress is a vintage baby dress. i made her crown from chicken wire and then vintage lace. for her stand, i took a doll holder and glued it to a vintage shabby chic - ish plate and added glitter on top. she carries her little pink purse where ever she goes - notice the little bird hitchiker?
