Vintage Friday Inspiration

She was priced really well
and I knew I could make some money off her.

But a second look
made me think twice about it...

I'm not sure if it was because of her blue eyes...




or the fact that her arms are too short for her body...




or the tiny buttons on her boots....




or even her age...




but she is my Vintage Inspiration for today.






And she is not going anywhere!!

I love your little doll. I don't know exactly what it is about old vintage things that tug at our heart. Obviously, my heart gets tugged a lot, as I have a house full of stuff I couldn't quite let go of!

Take care, Sue

Nope. I agree. She needs to stay put. She's too special to let anybody else raise her but you! Too special!
