I found this sweet vintage doll at an estate sale today. I was initially drawn to her just for her beautiful dress but she quickly won me over with her perfect rosy cheeks and slightly wonky eye. As you can see, she was in need of a little hair help. This is the method my sister and I always used when our dolls hair got unruly (actually I'm not sure my sister cared about messy doll hair a bit so I probably did her doll's hair too): brush out the hair, get it nice and wet, brush again and style, then carefully put a sock over the head until the hair is dry. Now look how cute she is!
My friend Tammy brought up a good point in my last post about vintage toys and (eek!)...vermin. I'm going to talk about that a bit in my next post!
