Here she is, arrived in the post yesterday. It honestly felt like Christmas opening the parcel. My very own Tiny Eyes doll. Handmade by Dee.
I have been a fan of Dee's dolls since seeing them on her blog a while back. I contacted her a few months ago and ordered two dolls. One each for my boys. I said there was no hurry as I would be putting them away for Christmas. After constantly stalking her doll albums I contacted Dee again and asked when she had a custom spot free if she could make a doll for me. She said she had come across a retro sheet that she thought I might like. Perfect.
Even though Bell is now a teenager (and more in love with One Direction than dolls) and I have two boys there was no way I wanted to miss out.
I love this doll and keep sneaking looks at her. Look! She has leather shoes and her face is hand painted.
I got the eye rolling from Bell. Mr H does not "get it". I'm not sure if Mr H will allow her on the bed so she can sit on the draws and stare down at him instead, ha!
I can't wait for the boys dolls to arrive. I will give you a tiny sneak peek before they are wrapped up and put away for Christmas.......
Do you ever buy things for your children that you secretly want yourself?
What are you coveting right now?
I wonder if I WILL actually give the boys their dolls.....?
