Introducing Ingrid, my final doll for 2015
Last year a very special girl came home with me from the Sasha Festival. Never did I think I would be lucky enough to own a doll like this, but sometimes lady luck shines on you...the minute I saw her I knew she would have to come home with me. She is by no means perfect and has quite a mysterious history to her, but despite her faults she has an air of reflection and tranquillity about her.
She came home with several items of clothing of which some we (after consulting with Ann Chandler and Susanna Lewis and later Anne Votaw) believe are original. Certainly her dress and underwear probably are and possibly her cape as well.
She 'told' me her name almost immediately.
She enjoys a tea party with her teddy which was a 'welcome home' gift.
I made her a new dress which brings out the blue in her eyes.
For the past year Ingrid has been keeping a diary of her life and daily happenings that may take her eye or give her pause for thought, events she has enjoyed and the odd trip that she may have undertaken. She is hoping the coming year will see more clothes added to her wardrobe!
In conclusion a mosaic of my 2015 dolls.
