It is the second week of September, and the sun has finally come out of its long hibernation over the Australian winter, and we were greeted with this lovely, lovely, warm spring day. And what better to do then to make dolls, and photograph dolls! Outdoors! Fresh Air! Quick Drying Things!
The ‘Flower Shower’ girls (Penny and Berry) were the 18th Limited Edition releases for JerryBerry, and the Summer release for JerryBerry. When they were announced, I love all the teaser photographs for them. Light, airy, with a little summer breeze. The girls looked sleepy and glowy as they passed summer days and nights. With this in mind, and keen to see what the process was like to order a Limited doll from Jerryberry, plus I was in my Jerryberry loving mode. Penny arrived 6 weeks after I ordered her.
Before I received my Welcome Winter girl (now called Snowberry) I was mournfully thinking that I would never be able to receive a limited edition JerryBerry so I put in an order for a Basic. She took 3-4 weeks to make, and arrived at my door last week. I’d like to introduce to you the ‘basic’ Berry.
So I’ve been writing about these Jerryberry dolls and then spending hours (waiting for trains, students, models, the husband) browsing on Flickr in my spare time. And then it happened. I saw this picture:
Yeeeeeep. That did it. If you ever want to browse an absolutely stunning photographic doll feed that is horribly enabling, please look at her Flickr.
