The lonely doll

    Thursday's Child Challenge #2 "Your most mysterous doll"

    I have no idea where this sweet little doll came from, she just sort of lives with me. I find her so expressive and dear. I have no idea how old she is, nor does she have any markings to tell about her maker. She's quite small for a doll of her type, about 11" from tip to toe.

    Something about her has always reminded me of Dare Wright's lonely doll. <3

      She's truly one of the most adorable vintage dolls I've seen. Hard to believe she is so small! The details of her sweet face are incredible.

      ohh I would love to meet her. :D As long as she isn't a Blythe, she is right for the group! Maybe next week I hope!
      ohhhhh how exciting, I can't wait to see her!! Yes, this girl too has wooden feet, but they are painted over. hmmm.
      aww thank you. <3 Isn't she amazing? I love the crazing effect she has all over her face and body as well. I planned to make a new wig for her, but I actually like her sparse hair the way it is.
      What a lovely thing to say, thank you. <3
      Thank you for letting me know. I'll have to look into her, too. :)
      Her little face just melts me. Thank you so much for loving her too. :)

      She was my all time favorite stories.
      Beautiful!

      Dare Wright's books are some of my all-time favorites! I would never, ever part with a single one of them! I can see how this doll reminds you of Edith.

      She's so very sweet and forlorn. What a treasure. She looks like a Dream World or Madelon doll.
