neglacted

Hello, my name is Doll. I was the little play friend of this blog owners daughter. And although my face doesn't show.....I'm feeling upset and disappointed.

She just pulled me out of the cupboard were she hide me for over 20 years or so. I was totally neglacted!! And look what time did to me...

STAINS..all over!! So sad..also on the only dress I own!
In effort to remove all stains and to let me feel a bit better, she made me a bath with bubbles and some stuff out of this pink container.

So now I'm floating around here..hoping for a clean skin and dress and some LOVE. Somebody save me!!

Corry.. she is very precious. I hope she turns out ok. Make sure you get her very dry.. so the stuffing inside doesn't mildew. I have a soft spot in my heart for old cloth dolls. :-)

How can you not love her!!! I also have a rather 'elderly'rag doll called Lucy, who is very special as she helped me through a very difficult time when my DH was undergoing heart surgery ! She appeared as a pattern in a magazine and cried out to come and live with me! Made out of what was at hand (even an old pillow case !)she has survived for 22 years, but she too is looking a bit dusty and needs some TLC !!
Thanks for your story!.....Luv AJ

Please let me know if it works as my dolls all have stains on them too. Cherrie

Misschien moet ik ook maar eens een badje in de Vanish nemen; ik heb na iets meer dan 20 jaar ook wel een paar extra vlekjes en vouwtjes zo hier en daar.
Zonde is dat. Ik hoop dat het werkt. Ik had hetzelfde met mijn poppen van vinyl. Die kwamen na 30 jaar zo gehavend uit hun doos, dat ik liever de herinnering bewaarde dan de echte poppen die gewoon griezelig waren geworden. Fijne dag!

I hope you can get all the stains out. She looks like a fantastic treasure. Keep us up to date.

HI Corry,

Just a note from Chicago, IL to say I stumbled across your blog and LOVE it. My husband's mother was from Holland so it is lovely to see your beautiful work and stories.....I hope she comes out spotless. I love the fabric you use on your projects...Beautiful...

I would like a soak if I'd were hidden away for twenty years. It is her spa treatments. I hope she comes through good as new. Great post.

Tam said...

That bath looks very inviting ;-)
I hope everything comes out sweaky clean please let us know how Dolly feels after her bath.

I love a nice warm bubble bath and it does wonders for me. I know it will for this lovely little lady, too;)

I also hope you can save this doll, there must have been a lot of time spent to make her.

She is so sweet, I hope all comes out well! I have a monkey that I've had for 50 years, one hand is hanging off but I still love him.

Oh, cute post! Good Luck to you, Doll, and hope you come clean and dry. Your dress is lovely.

You are so cute, I hope all the stains will disappear.

Moorea said...

What a cute doll. My mom made me some dolls with embroidered faces- I love that. I hope she comes out spotless! You are sure to make a new outfit for her, I look forward to seeing that!

Eerst een bubbelbadje en dan een spa treatment, en dan heeft ze een total-makeover gehad. Ze ziet er straks vast weer uit als nieuw.
Leuke post!

Christy said...

How precious she is! I'm sure she'll be back to her former glory in a few days time!

Elly said...

Wat een heerlijke post! Ik heb hier gewoon zitten grinniken! Arme pop, nou ja, hopelijk is ze weer stralend uit haar badje gekomen!

Marian said...

Dat is een leuke herinnering! Ik hoop dat de pop weer lekker fris uit het badje is geklommen! Ik heb je getagd; kijk je even op mijn blog?

Leanne said...

She is very cute and think when you put her away Vanish would not have been around and you may have had trouble removing those stains.

meggie said...

Dear little dolly. I hope she is ok.

Lallee said...

Doll, what a precious face you have. Every girl loves a bubble bath and I bet you are already enjoying yours now. I hope we get to see you again.

She'sSewPretty said...

Oh!! Hurry up and fix her up! I can't wait to see. I love her little grin!
