Another package!

It would seem that like buses, packages tend to come all at once, if this week has been anything to go by!

I have been waiting on a package from the US and it was posted on the 10th April.  I'd hoped that it'd take about ten days.....but as I've probably said a million times on here before, Spanish customs, like customs everywhere I'm sure, are a law unto themselves...literally!  So the parcel was finally released from their custody last weekend and I expected the it to arrive with me on Monday, particularly when I saw that the tracking showed the status as "in the delivery system", that usually means delivery is imminent.  So I waited and waited, as we do when anything 'dolly' is involved, but no package arrived.  Spanish tracking remained the same but later in the day I received an update from USPS to say that an attempt had been made to deliver the parcel at 9.16am  and they would try again later in the day.  Well to cut a long story short....so as not to  bore any of my readers with my continuing sagas with parcels from the US, the parcel had indeed been in the delivery system, but in a town hundreds of kilometres away in Miraflores, Madrid!!!!!  This particular town had one number different to ours in their postcode and for some reason the parcel went there!  Luckily it had to be signed for and the mistake was noticed and after a bit of a palavar the parcel finally arrived here at about 5.30pm on Wednesday!!!  Oh, and in case you're wondering, yes I did get caught for customs, but luckily just 24 euros!!!

So my lovely new girlie had arrived!!!!  The girl in question is another Little Darling, this time a number 2 sculpt and painted by Dianna Effner herself.  I was fortunate enough to be asked by a friend in the US if I was interested in adopting her lovely girl and because the price was just so good, I went for it!  Never mind the fact that the doll is just lovely too of course!

So here she is, she came in the black bobbed wig but I've changed it for the Monique Gold Roxie, I think the colour is Brown/Black so it's a little softer than the solid black she was wearing.  I think she looks quite Asian which I'm really happy with as my other two girls who are the same sculpt do not have that same look.   I've not dressed her yet, she is still in the knickers and petticoat that she arrived in but hopefully very soon she'll be going through the clothes box and borrowing something from the girls.....just until I can make her her own outfits.

She is from November 2010, so an older girl and she's really lovely....although I admit that I'm prejudiced!!!

All she now needs is a name........









Thanks for looking!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

  1. I do like seeing the postman carrying boxes :) and it's seems he's wearing a path to your door this week!:)
    Sharon she is another lovely Little Darling girl ! How many do you have now? I have lost count ? I love that the child's barely through the door and you are changing her hair and settling her in.
    I am STILL waiting for my first one! I may have to buy a second one and see which arrives first!!
    Look forward to seeing your new young lady dressed and named and playing with her new sisters . Hugs Dee xx

    1. Thanks very much Dee, glad you like her! I now have 4 Little Darlings....and three more on order! LOL Now how did that happen?
      Goodness knows but what with these and the Sashas, I'm overrun with the little vinyl children!
      The wait is so long with Lana isn't it? It might well be worth you going to Nelly for one, and I'd put money on you getting the Nelly one first unfortunately. I'm sure Lana's wait time is as long as Dianna's now.
      Oh yes, in the door and immediately I'm wanting to see what other wigs they look good in! I only bought two wigs to the coast with me but like this one on her, I also have another long straight black one which I might take some photos of tomorrow.

  2. She is beautiful! I love her in both wigs, but agree that the second one is a little cuter. I love seeing all of your little Little Darlings-they are the cutest dolls of any I've ever seen. :)

    1. Thanks so much Farrah. Yes, my favourite at the moment is the second wig, the Roxie, I really like that style of wig and think it suits so many dolls.

    Are the other three down there with her at the coast? Do hope so, so that we can see and compare this new 'line-up'?

    1. Thanks Saphira, they, along with my Sashas, I think are my favourites of my dolls!
      I don't think that Dianna is actually taking orders at the moment, but it is worth emailing Geri Uribe as she deals with all the paperwork. I do believe the email address is on their website but if you can't find it, please give me a shout and I'll help you out. :)
