Mama's Dolls

I just realized my mom has some really cool dolls that she's found thrifting or has saved to give new dresses, hair, etc. I wanted to share some of my favorites because they are just too precious and unique.

This doll is part of a vintage gift set that came with a book, The Little Wooden Doll. I have been trying to learn more about the doll, but the only hit online is about the book. The book alone goes for quite a bit, but I have yet to find the little doll. She is probably one of the most beautiful closepin styled dolls I've ever seen. 

The second doll is a storybook doll, also vintage, but this little gal was balding, missing arms, and without clothes. Mom gave her doilie wings, patched up her hair, found a dress, and pinned the arms so you barely notice her arms are missing. I love this doll's face; she is so dainty.

Winter Break and Thrifted Finds

I'm officially on break! Can't believe I'm already halfway through my sophomore year. Everything is going by so quickly! Anyway, I got to spend some good old quality thrifting time with my family today. I almost slept in today too... I'm glad I didn't because I found some great stuff today!

Awesome halloween-esque skull planter, jolly roger sparkly bowl, vintage tupperware cups, a vintage crazy quilt pillow (my favorite find of the day), a groovy vintage recipe tin, and two little kewpies. Probably one of my best thrifting days, because I found a ton of new clothes too, including a vintage 'Judy T. of California' dress, which is in a Gunne Sax style. Most of these finds will be making an appearance on my etsy store too, so keep posted here:

I usually blog things I've made, but since I've started adding vintage items to my etsy store, I'm going to start posting some of my favorite finds from thrifting and my collections of vintage trinkets I have from my room.
