Sammy's doll

here is the other doll i made for the "beat the winter blues" doll swap, for my bud in Oregon, Sammy (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?
