Effenbee 12" Girl Doll
This little 12" doll is an Effenbee doll. She was probably made in about 1920. The company that produced this doll was owned by Fleischaker & Baum. I like how they took their two names and came up with the acronym of Effenbee.
After restoring her head (sorry no before picture), I made her a body sock, to cover her grungy body. I didn't want to replace it with a new one, as I liked the shape she had acquired over the years.
After a few days of resting and waiting patiently, she finally had a new outfit fitted and ready to wear.
A slimming crocheted teal blue dress trimmed in dark brown, suited her just fine. Her white leggings covered up her legs nicely, too.
Oh! Look! New shoes!! What girl doesn't appreciate a new pair of matching shoes? Ahhh, she is ready for dancing across the world.
" Effie Anne Bea", wants to "Thank You" for stopping in today! She hopes you can find sometime today to do a little"happy dance", where ever you are.
Smile On!! Audrey
