Hello Norma Jean, what are you doing? Peggy Sue asks.
I don't know. Replies Norma Jean. It is so wet out today.
I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go.
Mum has even re-done my hair.
Perhaps I will do some reminiscing...
Norma Jean has been with me for a few years now and used to belong to a friend of mine. She was originally called Gladys Jean. I am not sure I ever did a 'proper' formal introduction to her, so will do a post now, and if I did it was on my 'How Many Dolls' blog.
She didn't come wearing a dress, so I had to make her one. Oh to be able to just whip up a dress like I used to! Where oh where is that MOJO gone?! Her wig didn't quite fit so she borrowed another.
Peggy Sue welcomes her. Before the dress above was made she was wearing the only other dress available that fitted at the time.
This style of dress just didn't really suit her and made her look so much 'older'.
The short wig didn't really suit her, but she put on her smiling face and with a flower in her hair she was quite happy.
Back in 2015 I decided to give her a bit of a makeover and managed to find another wig that fitted her quite well and I made her a new dress.
I forgot that I made a detachable lace collar for this dress....I wonder where it has gone?!
Tying her hair back she looks really sweet and is quite the nature lover.
She remembers she wanted to know if she could keep the little red squirrel...
The photos above were taken in Autumn 2015 and yes she is still wearing that same dress - she says she likes it so why not?!
A little wee Schoenhut joined the Rose Cottage family the other day. Now although I 'knew' these dolls were small, as in 11 inches tall, I had in my mind they would be a similar size to the Sasha babies, but they are not! They really are quite petite and I am very taken by this little one. I hunted round in my clothes boxes and couldn't find anything that will fit, so will have to dig out my sewing machine, and hunt down my Mojo to make something fairly soon. I eventually found something just to cover him/her up - I am leaning towards a boy, but the only clothes I had that would fit were a knitted skirt and a white shirt!
I took some photos while I was staying at my son's place in the weekend, but not really sure I did this little one justice.
He/She enjoyed having a look round the Sailor's garden.
Oh dear, this photo certainly doesn't do this little one any favours, I seem to have captured a slightly cross eyed/lazy eye look.
