When I started this blog, I mentioned that my Sashas/Gregors have other brothers and sisters.
Here is my sweet little Bobette, Noelle, home after being stolen, taken to South Africa and finally returned by the embarassed parents of the thief. It's a long story but poor Noelle was missing for over a year, along with other dolls and came back without her little trunk of clothes. Indeed, she came back without any clothes at all.
So, her birthday being about Christmas time (hence her name) she had to have a new dress. It needs to be darted to fit her properly and (as Sharon knows!) my dolls tend to be little examples of those females used to call all-furs-lace-but-no-knickers, she needs underwear to finish the outfit. Generally, she likes to live in the modern day, but she does seem to like dressing up in the clothing of her Great-Grandmama's childhood times.
She wanted to have her photo taken with the beautiful bouquet that Ronny sent me and the plants that the children at the next farm grew for me as a Christmas gift. As always, I messed up the photo so the bouquet is not shown in entirity, but it is so beautiful that Noelle and I wanted to share it. As you can see, it is snowing here and nothing cheers me up like flowers, snow and the company of a favourite doll!
