Good Morning! Happy January, 2015. Are you ready for another trip around the sun?
Let's start this day off with a make-over.
This little 5 1/2" darling was discovered in a very quaint second hand shop. She was only $4.oo!!
She is made of a composite of some sort, and was in rather rough shape. I attempted to freshen her with a little clean up, and the paint became rather soft. I went cautiously ahead with a great deal of TLC!
She seemed grateful for the attention. Her little red dress was handmade, and quite faded. Let's take a look at her make-over.
She had some very old string holding her together at the shoulders and hips, that I needed to replace.
I painted her with acrylic paint, and redid the face. When I removed her hair, I could see that the hair was molded on, so the wig was not necessary.
Eventually, Maxine will get a proper dress, and the little red dress will be kept for gardening, or some other activity that calls for a less then perfect dress. She seriously has her eye on the bungalow I purchased, and has made some very good suggestions as to how she would like it set up.
She is a little treasure! I named her after one of my auntie's. Thanks for stopping in today.
Smile On! That way, no one knows what you are up to. ; ) Audrey
