Dolls, dolls, dolls

I'm not sure if its me, but I seem to have run into a bit of doll disappointment recently.  There are two artists' work that I was very keen to acquire.  One has been going "back and forth" for some time and the other well, perhaps that was a pipedream anyway.  I always seem to be just behind the curve with these dolls.  I'm not sure why, but it seems both artists are now "reluctant" or unable to sell pieces.  (I assume it is just a general state of the dolly business) -- but it is sad/frustrating.

My latest thing is I'm just going to "step back", concentrate on the dolls I do own and work on some amazing things for them (in my spare time).  I thought I'd have more time in the fall, but projects just keep jumping out in front of me.

I'm going to get back to the Cinderella carriage that I started all those months ago and then I'm going to go from there!

Soon to come the Cinderella progress....

It has been sooo long!!!

Lots has been happening (however, very little on the doll front) -- My daughters are in college away from home, so "my nest is empty".  I've been busy caring for my mom... that is for the long term.

I did have the most unexpected thing happen to me a while back.  Such a kind and generous act.  One of the doll artists, Nune, sent me a surprise gift!  It is a lovely dress for my Adriana.  I was so touched.  What a sweetie.  Thank you Nune!

Of course, I could not get the right light to photograph this gem and do it any justice.  But my blog is not about the quality of the photos (as everyone knows) it is about the joy of the journey.

I love the color on her.  I tried to do something unusual, like a provocative pose, well....  didn't turn out.  Instead of looking slinky, she looked like she was crawling out of a desert.

Then, a casual side roll, looked more like landing after a fall!

Hope you get a giggle!
