Rosa's ebay photo.
I took off her limbs so I could clean her torso and fluff. I discovered that a previous owner had tried to restring her by filling her arms with plaster and bungee-ing her arms together. That's why her upper body looked so narrow. Her arms were being pulled towards each other at the shoulders!

Now we have three Josefinas. They are all beautiful in their own way.
