With just a few days left before Christmas, I thought you all might like to see photos of Marilyn’s Christmas doll (don’t worry, I’m not spoiling the surprise, she knows all about the doll and planned it so that she would have her before Christmas). 🙂
I was planning to mail this doll to Marilyn on Tuesday, but a heavy snowstorm got in the way and delayed her departure by a day, giving her one last chance to romp in the snow before heading west to her sunny new home. The post office has done a wonderful job of transporting her, and at last check she has reached Arizona and should be arriving at her new home very soon!
12/21 – Update: Good news! Marilyn’s doll arrived at her new home safe and sound. She is settling in nicely on her new settee and making friends with a very sympathetic teddy bear from Maine. They are busy chatting about their travels from New England to the great southwest and making plans for the best Christmas ever! Thankfully this doll turned out to be everything Marilyn was hoping she would be. Something I always worry about when my dolls leave the studio to venture out in the world 🙂
