From unloved to Princess

Published October 10, 2013 by autumnmiss61

This little lady was my bootfair bargain last month. I found her lying on the floor of a stall and managed to rescue her for just 50p. She is a 2004 cabbie with cornsilk hair.

ImageAfter some tlc, a good wash, sponge down, hair scrub and a new dress bought from a well known auction site. This is how she looks now.

ImageI just get such a buzz from rescuing them and seeing them come to life again.  I hope she will make some child very happy to receive her soon.

2 cabbage patch dolls and a troll

These are my latest purchases from ebay.

This lady dates from 1980 and is in realiy good condition for her years. She needs a good clean and hair wash though and ill see if i can find some clothes for her.

This is a much later doll from 1995, she comes with clothes although they are stained so a good scrub is coming her way too.

This is a new one for me. I have never bought a troll before but im so glad i did. She is a cracker. She dates from 1977 and is a Thomas Dam made in Denmark.  I Know she is not everyones cup of tea but i think she looks so sweet. Her dress is grubby as is her veil and hair but being delicate i will have to go carefully to clean it.

They are a great addition to my CPK fixation though.

What do you think about the Trolls, scary or sweet?

 

Those DAM Trolls

Whilst searching on ebay today for some CPK’s i came across something i havent thought about for decades; Trolls or gonks as i called them. I’ve spent the evening researching them and have bought two on ebay along with 2 cabbage patch dolls.

Expect pics as soon as they arrive.

cabbage patch twins – Ellie & Jasmine

Published February 8, 2012 by autumnmiss61

These newborns which are about 3 inches smaller than an average cabbage patch doll look lovely in their new dresses. Ellie is the one with the straight tuft of hair and Jasmine with the curly.

I think they make a great pair of twins and have a mischevious look in their eyes.

They both date from the 90’s and have been looked after really well compared to some ive bought.
