One recent afternoon I went to a antique store . I seen this doll sitting in the corner. I picked her up and that was it. She was a keeper. Her name is Wanda the walking doll from the late 40's early 50's.
This is her from the back. Her hair is a bit messy but well loved. I don't believe this is her original outfit, but the dress blended in with the room. I need to find her a hat of some sort.
Her eyes close when she lays down
This is the first of two winders
and this smaller winder on her side
Her stockings are very delicate and slightly ripped but can not be removed as they are attached to her shoes that have special wheels.
Here is her wheels
This is my baby girl Jen (1980)
and here she is after purchasing her first home (2009)
Her bedroom became the guest room ( my room) and I have been enjoying redoing this room. We re wallpapered this past February and I bought new furniture. I am trying to fill the room with mostly old vintage pieces. I miss my baby girl so much, but I sure do love my new room. I do tend to sleep here most nights as my hubby is a bed hog.
I think Wanda fits right in and every now and then I wind her up and watch her go. She needs to be oiled but she does work. Who says a grown woman can't have dolls.........
