There are times in my treasure hunts that I am lucky to find some historical dolls and very good shape. I was extremly lucky this week in having two cross by path. So here is a little photo shoot, hope you enjoy it.
Elsie Dinsmore – Life of Faith Collection. Ever since I researched these dolls, I wanted to have one for my collection, but their price on eBay is pretty high. I knew I wanted the original Elsie by Breezy Point Treasures before Mission City Press, bought them out and changed them. This is Elsie in her original cloths, and she is numbered 500 of of 1000.

Another historical doll is Beth of Faithful Friends Collection. She was sold at Target from 1997 -1998 and later on Heidi Otts website until 2004. Hiedi Ott was the designer. I found her at Goodwill for $4.00, and I cleaned her up and re-styled her hair. She is not articulated so not a lot of posing. Her outfit is very well made and she comes with undergarments.
Beth has agreed to show us her boots and undergarment.

8. Not to leave Zoe out, she is from Play Wonder (Madame Alexander) another doll sold at Target not too long ago. I found her at Goodwill for $4.00. Her face I thought was so pretty, and I had forgotten that these dolls came with their finger nails and toe nails painted. They can also wear sandals because their toe is separated just for that reason.
