all's well that ends well


Remember that little upset with Ophelia?  "When we get disappointed, then immediately get re-appointed... We're letting go of the causes for the disappointment and pressing toward what God has for us. We get a new vision, a plan, an idea, a fresh outlook, a new mindset, and we change our focus to that".

In a classic case of God knowing best, taking care of the situation, and always working things out for my good, the sweetest lady came along a couple of days later and adopted Ophelia -- right off, without layaway. Yay! Thank you so much God! Thank you so much new mommy! Thank you so much everyone for your kind words and encouragement!

So, Ophelia got lots of good bear advice before packing up. 

Such as, always have a doughnut handy.

Here's Ophelia with her new pulls. The pulls control the eye mechanism and also allow for sleep eyes, which Blythes in their original condition don't have. New pulls are always fun because you get to play with all sorts of beads and trinkets.

Now that Ophelia is happily on her way to her new home, let me share with you my new little girl, Eponine (I actually reeeeeeally wanted to call her Scampi, but everyone said "No").

I cut and curled Eponine's hair and love how unruly it looks. It makes her look a bit of a minx I think.

A good friend of mine said she looked like a little starlet straight out of the 50s. That was really sweet praise :)

The inevitable hood. Eponine is up for adoption now :)

Have a super lovely week everyone!

Yay for Ophelia, and isn't Eponine a darling. (Psst, I like the name Scampi as well, lol.)

Your dolls are so filled with personality. I'm glad that Ophelia went to the second lady, because the first lady would never have appreciated her or treated her right. If you put something on reserve, I think that is a commitment! I rarely do layaways ~ haven't in decades, but I remember my first one. Elvis Presley's Blue Hawaii album, It cost $4.12, and my allowance was only 25 cents/week! It took a while! Have a good one, Jan!

Goodbye to Ophelia. I'm sure she will be a happy little girl in her new home. I love the name Eponine! She certainly look rebellious with her messy hair.

Congrats on finding a new home for Ophelia! I didn't know the original Blythe didn't have sleep eyes! Eponine is adorable. But it's your doll, you should be able to call her how you like. Scampi is a fun name!

Aw, that is wonderful. Things often work out for the better. Ophelia was just waiting for the right home.

And now there's Eponine! What a cutie. I bet she'll be scooped up in no time. You can't help but love these dolls. (I confess that I like the name Scampi!)

Got your email about the snake and crocodile. Holy Moly!
