Tuesday Treasure

This doll was made by Granny around 60 years ago.

While she had cosmetic surgery and received a new wig and outfit in the early 70's she is still in good condition.

The clothing includes a full set of underwear and is all removable.

Sure have lots of memories of playing with this lady who I don't believe ever got a name.

The tights are made from children's socks and the shoes are black felt with red laces.

The hair is a crocheted head piece which is attached after making.

She even has ears embroidered on the side of her head.
Go visit the treasure queen to see who else is playing.
Happy Treasure Hunting
