This gorgeous blonde was purchased at a local auction. Her wig was coming off and was starting to come apart, so off she went to Wanda Houke for a re-do. I redressed her in an original Sweet Sue ballgown in mint condition with tons of tulle and....oh, so 50's!

This raven haired beauty was purchased on eBay. No one knew who she was, for the seller had not undressed her to see if she had any markings. She is fully marked and I purchased her for $77. I dressed her in a mint tagged Madame Alexander "Madeline" outfit from the 50's. Now she's just wonderful!
