Last Saturday, this sweet little doll came home to our house with Jimmy. He was at an estate sale and the lady had it in a brown paper bag, waiting for him! A few weeks ago, we saw this little miss at a sale and I was tempted to buy her. She was just a little spendy for her condition for resale. I really hesitated and hated to let her leave her behind, but I had to walk away.
The owner of the sale remembered that I really liked the doll and she didn't want it to end up at a Goodwill, so she saved it for me as a gift. I was really thrilled and surprised!
She is so sweet, even in her condition. I am very happy to add her to my dolly family. Her name is Patsy Joan and she was made by the Effanbee company in the 1930's. She is a composition doll, her eyes open and shut, she has eyelashes and is 16 inches tall.
She still has her little identification bracelet. You can see her bad little thumb in this photo.
Baby needs some new shoes! Here's have seen better days! She could use a new dress too.
I found this photo of an Patsy Joan in an original box with her original outfit. Mine has brown eyes, but this one has green eyes.
This Patsy Joan has quite the wardrobe...all original outfits.
I did find a lady who sells patterns that would be so charming. I may have to get this.
I still am so amazed to have been given this sweet little doll. She is a charming little miss.
