It was an exciting few days of Dolly Mail for me – it was the most frustrating thing having all these packages arrive but NO TIME to open them. I was home almost 4am every day. Eugh!
On my wishlist previously I was looking for a Smiley Sister for Quinn, and I patiently scrolled through the DA page hoping for one. Most of the time, the Forty Winks girls were out of my price range, but Gingerbread popped up and I had to have her, as I had fallen in love with her photographs by Christine of Forty Winks Doll Studio long before.
It’s always a special feeling when a girl you have fallen in love with suddenly becomes available!
Gingerbread is on a Friendly Freckles base, with flaming red hair, a cheeky grin, and rosy, blushy cheeks. Her eyelid art reminds me of gingerbread houses and sugary icing.
She was originally a Christmas doll (hence the Reindeer headwear) and came with this giant, shiny, golden bell. I’ll have to re-attach it on, as I’m sure nothing will please my husband more than a giant warning signal as I walk around the house with my doll.
Here she is with her much grumpier sister. I’m not sure that they get along very well yet!
With the arrival of Nori, Les Jeunette and Gingerbread – my Blythe Dolly wishlist has come very close to a completion (with a Kenner on the way). This may be a good thing as I think I have no more space to put the girls!
Let’s hope I do not fall in love with anymore releases (except for My Melody of course)! Cherry Beach Sunset sold out within minutes, so maybe that one was destiny.
