Her clothes a little crumpled by the passing of decades...
But, the more I looked at the boudoir doll that I purchased the other day, the more I felt she wanted me to make her beautiful once more...well, we all need to feel good about ourselves from time to time, don't we?
Her tiny high heeled shoes were repaired with 'milliput' and given a new coat of shimmering gold paint...
And a bit more surgery has given her a complete set of 5 digits on each hand. (I still need to work on the colour of her thumbs and to paint her nails in a coat of pastel pink lacquer, but she's happy with the improvements so far!)
And how about these for a wicked set of falsies!!!
- Eyelashes made from silk embroidery threads, carefully trimmed and groomed to flutter at the French boys who just might be passing by ;-))
Floppy millinery flowers for her hair and a tiny velvet ribbon choker, give her the confidence to glow once more!
There, three beautiful babes, all with killer good looks reminiscent of that by-gone glamorous era.
And I've also been beautifying the old drawer that I mentioned in my previous post. Its now had three coats of eggshell paint and I've lined each of the sections with a pretty vintage floral wallpaper.
The perfect place to display an assortment of flowery treasures.
