Nancy a doll

I've had this tiny doll for many years. In fact she was one of the first antique dolls I acquired, from a dealer named Nancy. She was a general line dealer, but her booths were always stuffed to the brim with folk art, quilts and toys. And of course a few dollies.

So it is with great pleasure I show off Nancy's new dress. It took a long long time to find her proper attire worthy of her demure nature, but here it is, and it's perfect!
She looks quite pleased. After a few stitches to her petticoat, she was ready for her woolen dress. Lovely.

Mystery Mona Lisa smile

My new rescue dolly. She's another of my damsels in distress. Her body is a total loss. It may be impossible to find her matching leg. I may just leave it be.
