Blonde China Head

Yesterday we stopped at Walmart and I wanted to get a small clip on fan for the next time we have to sit for the day and the truck heats up.  With the two cubbies, I thought I could clip one on one side and let the fan circulate that very hot air around.  Surprisingly, they had only 2 fans left, a big box fan and a small stand type fan.  I grabbed the smaller one, I have to be able to keep the resin girls cool.

 

The frustration is that I my husband is really concentrating hard on the logistics of our move and all that is involved.  So we go over it in detail and I am half excited and half depressed over it all.  The packing and moving part is okay, but the year in Hawaii is causing me a huge dose of separation anxiety over leaving all my dolls, my doll rooms, my sewing machine, the apartment, our things and living in someone else’s home.  I can only take what I can carry on the plane.  Whom do I take?  Evie was a challenge.  More?  Less?  No one?  Everyone?

 

So how do I de-stress?  I shop.  I have been on some sort of mad hunt for another doll, particularly a little wooden doll.  Which is nearly impossible and when I do find them, they are poorly crafted and I know they wouldn’t do.  I found one I bid on and was so excited about her, but was outbid in the last minute.  Then I think to myself, just carve one!

 

While I was searching, I came across a little figurine we had when I was a child.  I was always fond of her, and my mother had her for many years.  I sent the picture to her to ask if she still had it.  I remember ours had a pale blue nightgown and oatmeal coloured hair.

How funny then, today I find this girl right at the near end of her auction:
