Words are inadequate to express my
appreciation for the amazing work you and your
husband, Cary, have done in restoring my Saucy
Walker. I am in awe of your skill.
I know that Saucy was a challenge from the
start, with her central rod, deep facial cuts,
"wonky" eyes, open seams and unusual
skin tone and very aged clothing. I had seen
your website and chose you because I knew of
your skill. I was overjoyed to discover that
you are also superb artists. Your talent,
creativity, ingenuity, and perseverance
overcame all of the challenges. My Saucy looks
the way I remember her as a child (maybe even
better than I remember). It's amazing, as
well, how beautifully you were able to restore
her original clothing to new.
I also truly appreciated and enjoyed all of
your communications and photos throughout this
process. I feel so privileged to have met you
and to have experienced your excitement in
what you do so well. I will certainly
recommend you to anyone I meet who needs doll
I plan to return to your website often to
watch your progress with other dolls. May you
continue to bring as much joy to others as you
have brought to me. Thank you so much for
All my best,

Shoes Re-Soled. We put stuffing
in the toe area to prevent the
wrinkling of the brittle leatherette
|We washed her hair and
conditioned it. It is still wet
in these photos. We curled the bangs
as she originally had long curly bangs
rolled in a banana bang style.
We had to do all of this before we
take her head off because when we do,
she will have a long rod coming from
inside her head that connects to the
rod in the torso at the arm opening
area. Once the head is removed
we then can repair the eyes and polish
them and try to repair the scratches
on the right side of her forehead and

stay up late.
|Mommy...You should see
all the pretty dollies here with me,
they are everywhere.
|The one next to me that I
am looking at is REAL tall Mommy and
she has a real pretty dress .
|There is my body Mommy
and Dr. Saucy Lady is going to perform
cosmetic surgery on me
|now and the next time you
see me I will be put all together.
Love you Mommy!!
|Above are the patches before
we sand the body and paint the patches
on the outside. We have used a
plastic compound that is drying at
present. We have sealed the
seams that were split and the cracks
by gluing and also patching with the
compound on the inside of the doll for
future support. Both of the arm
openings and one complete shoulder.
|Marge: Dr. Hubby is
right now at this moment painting over
the red area on the face and trying to
blend the more pink color. That
indeed is a challenge but we have our
ways of overcoming. So Pray!
|Prays answered!! We
combined another tone with the Saucy
Blend. Saucy faces are always
darker than the bodies especially with
age. We do not sand the faces
except for this small area of your
Baby girls' face and to get the color
to blend with the aged areas....I
think we got real close but have to
wait till it dries for about 3-4 days,
then we will know for sure.

patch because we have learned that
dainty and thin patches never hold in
this area because of the rod being
seated here and the movement from the
doll walking stresses this area.
