A Doll From My Childhood
This is Bridget a doll my father sent over for me from England. Vanda had one with dark hair and mine had pretty blonde hair. She used to have a checked pinafore dress with a pinky rose coloured puffed sleeved blouse. The dress was green and white checks. It unfortunately fell to pieces and could not be saved so I had to throw it out. She still has her original shoes and socks. I found this pretty second hand dress at a market and it fits her quite nicely but does need a little work on it. Bridget also needs a good clean as she is quite grubby so I will get to that as soon as I have some spare time. I think she has a very pretty face and I like her blue eyes. They are a really nice shade of blue. She still has her original mama crier but it doesn’t work very well. I was interested to see that it was made of plastic and was a rather nice tortoiseshell pattern. I also noticed her arms were quite loose so she will need then restrung. I guess I spent too much time making her walk and move about even though I didn’t actually play with her very much. She was so fancy I was afraid of messing her up when I first got her. So she may well have a trip to Dr Kitty in store when I take some of my teddy bears to get fixed.
