A little visitor from the US...

Yesterday I received a wonderful package which contained a lovely and most generous gift from a dear dolly friend in the US.  I was expecting a parcel but I really was not expecting what was inside.  This sweet friend had told me that she'd bought some dolls and that they smelt strongly of smoke and she wanted to send one to me.  She spoke about the Spanish sunshine and being able to leave the doll outside to get rid of the smell, as I'd had some success in the past with doing just that.  Because of Spanish Customs I said to her that it might be better if she could send him to someone in the US but she said that no, she didn't want me to work on 'them', she wanted me to have them as a gift!!!!

Lo and behold the parcel came and inside there were two very sweet, and very CLEAN non smelly dolls!  One of them is a brown eyed Sasha who is bald, so needs rerooting or a wig, so I will introduce her at another time.  The other was a very sweet little Caleb who has pumpkin strings and tight non-falling curls.  I'm thinking with this string colour he is probably from 1973/74 and probably wore the Mushroom suit outfit, but as I haven't got my book to hand, I may well be wrong.  Regardless, he is a nice little boy and now that I've dressed him he is fitting in well with the other boys here :)



And here he is on his own, outfit by me, socks by Ruthdolls and shoes from Boneka.





He tells me his name is Conor, "just one 'n'" but I already have a Natterer boy here called Connor!  But I guess we can have two, as long as we remember that this one is the one with "just one 'n'"!!!

Hugs Sharon xx

  5. He's so handsome. I love the tighter curls on the early Calebs. Good photography, too - one can see all of his features.
    And those striped socks are wonderful.

    1. Thank you Ursula. Yes, the curls are great, really tight. I had to put him in the sunshine to get his face to show up properly. I had less problems with him than I had with a Cora that I used to have, I n ever could get her face to show up at all.

  6. Hi Sharon
    The Outfit of Conor is great. And I enjoy the photos. It isn't easy take photos from a dark doll. But yours are well done. I love the first most. I have a Caleb too, but I haven't dared to take photos yet.
