Hope you are not too freaked out by this. I do realize that without the history, it can look a little disturbing, especially for the start of a new week. But I was cleaning one of the rooms in the house and came across it.
This was a much loved dolly. It's body was replace at least too time because it was loved so much. Her hair, as you can see, is beyond belief: so matted and lost.

She was first found at a flea market, in a box along with so many other little dolls. 
She was pulled out and hugged. 
She was a keeper.
And was named "Dolly".
Our little girl went up to the old man who was selling his collections and gave him a kiss which I am sure he remembered for the rest of the day.
