~WISH Dollie~

And here is my latest little dollie. She is for the Mercantile. She looks so sweet in person. The pictures are not the best...a bit grainy on the close up one. I tell ya, I am stuck on these banners. Our theme for the Mercantile was "Christmas in July" and with that in mind, I made this dollies. She has a WISH banner across the front of her...
I originally made her a very BIG star on a rusty wire to hold, but it blocked her banner. Now, she has a star attached to her hand. She has lots of extra added detail, wired tinsel and lots of woolens, with crystals. Her hair is light brown mohair. I thought she turned out so sweet. I did not want to make her real "Christmasy"...so that she may stay out the whole year through .

Funny how I always wanted my dollies to be "suprise" for the Mercantile...I received lots of emails asking for "sneak peeks" and now I, myself am like a kid in a candy store...I get so excited, I have to show them right away. *smirk*

Hubby is doing well, some pain...but that is to be expected. I feel sorry for the poor guy. I would not want to be in his shoes. I must go, I have lots of packing to do and then run to the post office. I hope ya all have a great day. Oh and THANK YOU for all of the emails with happiness for my great news and for the wondeful comments left here as well. You all are the BEST! Smiles and Blessings to you, ~Tonya
