We met on a musty old porch at an estate sale and my inner child prompted me to pick her up and cradle her in my arms and have a tea party with her. But the adult on the outside looked at her skeptically for she was severely cracked and looked ready to crumble.
I wandered through the rest of the house, picking up a few old records, dishes and books, but it was too late. I had fallen in love and I could almost hear Celine Dion..."near far, wherever you are..."
I had a panic moment that someone else had found my treasure and stolen her away as I rushed back to the little porch. There she was waiting and I did pick her up and cradle her in my arms but held back from kissing her.
As you can see from the before pictures, she was a pretty sad little creature. But I found a fantastic doll doctor and little Evelyn came back to me better than new with a diaper, shoes, new clothes and all kinds of goodies.
