Our Generation "Sadie' and "Evelyn" Thrift Store Rescue Doll Make-Overs!

Hi Doll Friends!

I do so love to 'rescue' dolls from Thrift Stores who have been treated rather poorly and bring them home to give them a makeover... I mentioned to you when I found this Our Generation Doll thrift shop find a couple of weeks ago. Then I found Our Generation Sadie at a thrift shop just the other day... I cleaned them both up right after I got them, brushing out their hair and whatnot but hadn't had time to shampoo and 'hot dip' their hair... Till yesterday...

Here they are, all ready for their shampoo. They originally came named Evelyn and Sadie but I will likely not keep those names. You know me, I like to name my dolls myself. 

As you can see, I already brushed out their hair...

I always cover up the eyes on dolls with sleep eyes because I don't want water to get in them and ruin them... My husband laughed and told me she looks creepy... LOL But better looking creepy during a shampoo than rusted out eye sockets, right? 

Here they are all dried out and looking much better...

They are posing with a chair I bought at Goodwill over the weekend for $3.99! Such a cute chair!

The dress "Evelyn" is wearing is a vintage doll dress I bought recently for 99cents at a thrift store. I think it looks very cute on her! Love the pattern of the fabric. 

The "Sadie" doll I dressed in an Our Generation dress that came on my Our Generation 'Joy' Doll, my very first brand new Our Generation doll! 

I think they came out rather nice. Do you think so? 

More soon.



  1. Yes, they came out nice. You gave them new lives. Good job!

  2. Oh, I forgot to mention the chair. Looking so nice and expensive. Kind of steal!
