Although there has inevitably been some new arrivals this year, most have come from charity shops and been real bargains... and of course I have made a lot of dolls this year, which really helped. The dolls that didn't come from the CS I bought in January before Percy became ill which were on a long term wish list, and a couple that had been on my wish list for a very long time I bought when the opportunity arrived later on in the year. I'd like to do even better next year on limiting my spending on dolls and doll items. I will have to anyway as it seems Percy's treatment will be continuing for most of 2020 as well which has come to a bit of a shock to us as we thought the treatment would just be for a year. So there will still be more dolls that will have to be sold, as well as the ones I still have for sale. I AM negotiable on them, so if you are interested please don't hesitate to contact me.
Some highlights of the year are:
Henry getting a new head of hair and of course visiting New Zealand
Finding Kiwi Sindy in an Op shop in NZ...just at the right time, when I needed a 'pick me up'. She has become a firm favourite of mine.
My £1 vintage Action Man.
The making of Martha the Elephant (and her two sisters for my Mum and Sister) and doing a 50 plus day project with her.
Making my childhood doll Linda her first new dress ever!
Finding sweet baby Natalie for £1.30 in a Charity Shop. What a high I got from that.
The making of Howard Bear and enjoying him.
My Tiny Rag Dolls (minus three that were given as gifts)
