Our Shirley Temple comes home.

Here is a photo Naomi sent me this afternoon of our Shirley Temple doll after she collected her from the shop this afternoon. We wanted to have Shirley home for Christmas and she will be joining us on Christmas Eve at my house. Shirley looks pretty pleased about that.


  1. I know this is a while after the post, but if you can find a soft makeup brush (or possibly a paint brush, like for acrylics) the same color as Shirley’s eyelashes, you can possibly fix the missing ones. I did this with a vintage Chatty Cathy, and you can’t tell the difference. Found the instructions online, somewhere.

    Your Shirley is lovely. I have two 15″ vintage vinyl Shirley dolls, but no compo ones (other than a “look alike” doll I’ve had for many years.
