Larry brought home a pitiful, filthy little homemade Cabbage Patch doll to me today that he found while cleaning out a storage area at work.  He was told he could have anything in there that he wanted (that's where the insulators came from).  I loved her instantly, named her Hattie and immediately set about giving her a bath (in a king-size pillowcase tied in a knot and thrown in the washing machine on the gentle cycle) and getting her fixed up.

She had a lot of smoke damage, soot and dirt on her face from the fire that almost destroyed the building but all that washed away!  I threw away the dress she was wearing, the ribbons in her hair and the Pamper on her butt and made her our baby with a tie-dyed t-shirt and cloth diaper.  :) 

 Welcome to the family, Hattie!  We're so happy you're here!
