It Gets Curiouser and Curiouser!!

Now, in the course of unstuffing the now headless body of this old doll, which was stuffed with a combination of household rags and sawdust, I find a couple of pieces of old wadded up newspaper with the date 1873 and Winona, Minnesota on it! These I will iron flat and include in the scrapbook that I will send with this cleaned up and reassembled doll to our local museum.  She is truly an unravelling story!


  1. How very interesting, Barb! I came to your blog via the Vintage group.
    Good luck with this!

  2. Thanks, Susie. I'll either destroy her or make her more presentable; I'm hoping for the latter! I'm being very careful with her, and seeing how she'd been patched so many times, I figure what's one more patch?!
