Well it’s been a while since I have posted on here, so I thought I’d share my last doll of this year.
She arrived on Christmas Eve , so she’s called Merry, because I already have Evelyn in my Schoenhut collection or she would have been called Eve.
Merry is a Miss Dolly Schoenhut, 20 inches tall and with Sleeping eyes. She has her original wig which is a lovely long brown one.
Her face paint is original and perfect which can be rare in these dolls. She came in this very fragile nightdress with an underslip and a union suit.
Today boxing day I removed her outfit and gave it a gentle wash. The underslip appears to have a few blood stains on it, so is soaking in cold water and salt. I intend to use the under slip and nightdress to make a pattern to replace them because the nightdress is just too fragile and the under slip has blood staining which I don’t think will remove fully.
So tomorrow or Friday she’ll be redressed for daytime , so she can meet her new friends , family and neighbours.
She did very kindly stand for this photo on Christmas eve, with a present I recieved from my very good friend Jenni.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year for 2019
