Happy Saturday Friends!So I’m in the thrift store the other day, on my lunch hour, and I’m looking through some doilies and other linen thingies… and I see something rather odd looking peeking out from underneath some tablecloths. It looked like an eye.
What the heck is that? I said to myself.
I removed the tablecloths and, to my surprise, what did I find underneath?
vintage plastic doll body parts…
vintage plastic flattened-like-pancakes doll body parts…
hidden under the linens.
I had to rescue them. Didn’t I?
I poured the parts out of the baggie and onto the table, and my first thought was…
What would Donna do with these?
I went ahead and snapped their parts together.
Poor girl looked like she had frog legs.
Oh no… that won’t do.
Let’s try that again… shall we?
Except they aren’t wearing any clothes!!! And it’s winter!
Seriously, someone needs to make these naked dolls a wardrobe, but it’s not going to be me.
I’m so not a sewer.
They did come with some clothing patterns on sheets of cardboard… three outfits for each doll.
But I can’t read them
Does anyone know what mystery language this is?
Apparently having clothes on makes these dolls very happy.
It makes them jump for joy.
OK… I’m having way too much fun playing with these dolls.
Step away from the dolls.
They remind me of the paper dress up dolls that I had as a girl, except these are large… about 10 1/2″ tall.
Honestly, don’t you feel sorry for these poor sweet plastic babies? I know I sure do.I need to get them listed in my etsy shop so they can find a home with a sewing machine. Preferably with someone who knows how to work said sewing machine.
If you know anything about them, or you know what mystery language I’m looking at here, please share.
Now onto some dolls that have some clothes.
I found this Amish looking doll set in the original sealed bag. They’re about 19″ tall, and at least they have some clothes.
The boy is wearing overalls and the girl is wearing only pantaloons.
Well, I did say some clothes.
That’s Elizabeth on the left and Emily on the right. They look so pretty dressed in their Sunday best… all embellished with lace and ribbons.
I can’t say as much for this healing voodoo doll… oh sorry, I mean Over The Hill Doll.
The note that came on this doll reads: Stick pins where symptoms of old age arise. You may need more pins. haha.
I’m sure I will.
I think I resemble some of those ailments.
So when I had a sore neck the other day I stuck a pin in it (the doll’s neck, not mine) and lo and behold it worked.
A few minutes later my sore neck was gone. Just like that!
I’m sure the muscle relaxant I took had nothing to do with it.
Do you need an Over The Hill voodoo doll in your life? If you do just remember with great power comes great responsibility. This doll should only be used for good.
He’s carrying an umbrella, and she has a purse on her arm.
According to the label on the bottom of the old man they were handcrafted in Quebec.
I have no idea of their age, but they’ve never been used.
You can find all these things in my etsy shop, except the mystery language dolls. I’ll be keeping those until I find out more about them.
Thanks so much for reading!
