We found her at Goodwill and Ellen rescued her under the auspices of convincing me to put her under the Christmas tree.
Needless to say, in her former life, Josephina was well loved.
She needed some TLC… bad!
Meet my sometimes daughter, Carolyn.
Carolyn and Emme are besties and we love it when Carolyn hangs out with us!
In an effort to raise money to buy a horse, Carolyn has started a business… ALL DOLLED UP.
Carolyn gently restores dolls who have been loved on.
In just a few days, Carolyn did wonders for us.
Meet the “new” Josephina.
Ellen is thrilled.
She held Josephina all the way home…
“Mom, her hair isn’t sticky at all!”
“She smells so good!”
“She’s almost brand-new!”
Ellen and Josephina say “thanks Carolyn and All Dolled Up!”
And… Josephina is gently packed away to be wrapped up Christmas morning. 😉
