A lot of the blogs I follow participate in the trend known as Throwback Thursday. They get their old dolls and either wrap them around a theme or embark on a bull session. I would've done this myself, but the vast majority of my dolls are too young to be considered throwbacks and y'all have seen the old ones already! Therefore, every Thursday from now until the foreseeable future I'll post a doll that I have not been able to identify, with the hopes that maybe someone can help me. In the process I'll brag about some of my finds, and you can either drool or yawn and click the "close" button (LOL). This week I present to you a porcelain doll, whom I call "Maria."
Accenting the dress is this sheer wrap, which is banded to Maria's upper arms. I really love that wrap; it can be draped around Maria's dress in different ways, making her look like she's got something really elaborate on.
Maria's legs are also porcelain from about the knee down, but they don't move. Her feet have white painted shoes. Notice that her legs are set at different angles.
Yeah, I know I'm supposed to be reviewing the newer dolls that I've got and I'll get to that; I just don't know when. I have a dog-sitting gig all next week and the week after that I get one of my eyes redone. Yes, the doctor told me that the left eye will need an adjustment. No cutting will be involved, thank God, but the overall experience has me a bit apprehensive. In the meantime I hope one of you can help me identify my Maria. She's a very nice little doll and I'd love to see who her maker is. She may even have a different name!
God bless y'all,
