Introducing . . . and Naming Her

Exciting news!  I have a new Little Darling!  Her name is Alice; she is a number one sculpt painted by Nelly Valentino.  I’ll let Alice’s photos do the talking.  You can see how beautiful and sweet she is. ❤

This girl was meant to be Alice.  When Nelly emailed me her first photos, I showed them to my daughter.  My daughter, who also named my Lucy, said she looked like an Alice.  Well, I wasn’t sure, so over the course of the next couple of days we both thought of several other names:  Dorothy and Dot (both names after my mom), Tulip, Lilly, Susan.  We then took the scientific approach (ha ha) for naming this girl because we just couldn’t decide.  My daughter wrote all of the names on a piece of paper; I closed my eyes and pointed to a name.  My index finger landed between Alice and Dorothy.  Okay, now we need a tie breaker.  She took the two pieces of paper, one with each name on it, in a different hand and told me to pick a hand; I picked the right hand.  So, you see, even after all of the fussing she was meant to be Alice.

Lucy has been generous to her new sister and has given up her next outfit, so that Alice can model for you ASAP!

Soon, soon, very soon . . . Alice will model it for you.  Right now she is enjoying her new home.  I think she’ll love it here, don’t you?

      Hi Mary,
      Thank you. Today is the first day in 2-1/2 weeks that I don’t have to be anywhere or do anything except work in my studio. Yay! I hope to get lots accomplished.

    She is gorgeous as are her sisters…I shall have to save my pennies so that one day I will be able to have the fun of playing dollies too!

    Lucky you! What a sweetie. Love the two tone wig. Perfect on her with those lovely brown eyes. Did you have to wait a long time to order from Nelly Valentino? Can’t wait to see her outfit.

      Hi Joy and thank you. When I ordered her the wait time was about 7 months; she ended up taking 11 months though. It did go pretty fast, and Lucy came along halfway into my wait, that helped. I’m going to try and get her outfit completed today.

      Hi Sonia,
      Thank you! Nelly did beautiful work bringing my Little Darling to life, so thankful. I love having my daughter help name my dolls (the ones that need names); it adds a sentimental touch. So now I have three, and quite possible enough???!!! Have a great Sunday!
