Vintage Boudoir Altered Dolls


Yes! It's almost spring, and today we had beautiful sunny weather and mild spring like temps. It was the perfect opportunity to take my photography outdoors. 

Im having fun making these altered "boudoir girls" as I like to call them. I've made two that are available in my Etsy shop. This sweetie pie was inspired by Little Bo Peep.

I think I'll call her Miss Pinky. Suites her doncha think?



Her body torso is of a vintage after powder tin. How darling is the image? 

 Little lamb.


She holds her staff that I made out chenille and lace trim.


Miss Pinky is a TRUE Southern Belle!!!

This next Va Va Voom doll I love and adore! I've named her Miss Bonnie because she reminds me of Bonnie Blue Bell from Gone with the Wind. She's a beauty with her jet black hair, blue eyes, sweet pink cheeks, and red lips! She is definitely Pretty in Pink!




It's really hard to part with her because she is my FAV!!!!

She has an adorable oversized handbag with kittens on it. How sweet is this? It's an actual doll purse that I found when I was at the Long Beach Flea Market last August.


These beauties are available here.

Im so  honored and thrilled to have been choosen as one of Lollishops TOP TEN adorable blogs awards. Thank you Miss Sadie! I will proudly display my award!
