antiquing is a GOOD thing!

do you not just LOVE this darling little vintage doll i found in a flea market/antique store????
i absolutely fell in love with her, while cruising the shops with Ron and Nancy last week! along with many other things, i must confess...but this little gal stole my heart!.......she is very vintage.... i don't have any stats on her...would love to know how old she is.....she is in excellent condition.....but definitely NOT a copy.....her arms and legs are some kind of a vinyl.... her face is in such good condition! obviously she wasn't PLAYED with much, if at ALL.........i am guessing late 40's into the 50's?????? anybody out there in blog land have any ideas?????
i haven't named her yet...feel free to contribute your ideas about that too! IN FACT.......random thought here...........please leave a name suggestion...and IF i choose your name......i PROMISE to send you something artsy i have made!!! DEAL????????????????? .....i want a vintage name....a sweet name......she is in ballet attire.....
i will look forward to your ideas........... i am NOW rolling around ideas for my "artsy" gift to the winner!!!
how fun! i love to give things away!!!!

I think that Paige Elizabeth is sort of "vintagey" for a cute dolly like yours!

I'm thinking Matilda -- Mattie for short. Matilda Rose or Matilda Grace would work since people keep suggesting those middle names. Matilda Anne also sounds nice.

I noticed the Madeline suggested above. That could also be shortened to Maddie.

Emily Rose
Louise Belle
Emma Marie
i do like the above anonymous' name though.

I would name her Paris because....well, look at her!! (and ballets, in Paris) Or better yet, Auntie Paris, for Antique!

I already submitted Matilda, but I'm enjoying this, so I have to submit more names...

Maggie Anne (probably better without the e in this case, although I'm an Anne of Green Gables freak and can only spell Anne with an E.

Evelyn Rose/Grace either.

Irene Rose

Gracie Rose (use both names since people keep suggesting them for middles.

Rose Grace (ditto above).

All the names suggested are lovely. Can't wait to see what appeals to you.
