Schoenhut Series - Norma Jean

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?!

May 2016 - Norma Jean admires the pretty flowers.


  1. Wow, the pictures with the squirrel really showcase the poses she is able to adopt. Do she and Peggy Sue have lots of fun together?

    1. I love the way these dolls can pose, they really are so much fun. I need to do more with them, haven't done much in over a year.

      She and Peggy Sue do have fun together...I think this little girl is Peggy Sue's younger sister, she certainly takes the big sister role.

  2. I love this blue and white stripe dress on her and her long hair tied back. I'll bet Peggy Sue keeps her out of trouble and plays with her everyday!

    1. Thank you, I like this dress on her as well, which is probably just as well considering how long she has been wearing it since it was made! Peggy Sue is the good bigger sister and looks out for her.

  3. What a little sweetie - such a lovely face. I really like the way you have styled her hair. It's definitely her look.
