A Christmas Doll for Marilyn!

Marilyn's doll www.izannahwalker.comWith 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).  🙂

studio www.izannahwalker.comI 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 🙂

  1. Hi Paula – the new Christmas doll for Marilyn is so pretty! Another beautiful Izannah Walker doll from your talented hands. Thank you for sharing pictures of her – and of your beautiful yard full of snow. And also, I love the picture of the wreath that you included – the icicles on it make it just look absolutely stunning. The perfect Christmas picture! Actually, a perfect Christmas card picture! I hope the snow holds out for a white Christmas for you. Sadly, the snow here is melting and the rain will probably do away with the rest. But it will be a great Christmas – I can’t wait to see my new Izannah Walker doll. So exciting! Merry Christmas! Susie

    • Susie,

      Thank you! All the crazy light with the sun bouncing off of the snow was making photos a challenge 🙂 She is really so much more beautiful in person.

      It’s warmer here today too and the snow is starting to melt. We still have plenty, but I don’t think it will last till Christmas. The wreath is on my studio door, so I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of it too, on my way out to photograph Marilyn’s doll. I have a real fondness for icicles.

      Your doll and Marilyn’s left here at the same time. It’s almost like a race to see which one is delivered first 🙂

      Hugs,
      Paula
