Her smoky eye make-up is very chic and of the moment, although she may get arrested for the topless outfit :) I'll go and visit 'French Charming', thanks for the tip.

Hi Lori,
Thanks for visiting my blogs this morning, you are too sweet!
Your doll is perfect! What great condition she's in too. I picked up one of these at auction last month, mine is a complete wreck though, her hair is gone, face is a mess and her dress is filthy. I paid next to nothing for her, but I had to bid on her, I was so worried she might end up in the trash if I didn't!

Just wanted to let you know that even though you side tracked me, I appreciate you opening the door to a wonderful new blog!!!!

She is sooo lovely! I was over at French Charming, but only to say hi. It seems that I'm stuck to my computer and I still have to do a lot of things! I'll be back when I have a spare moment, I told her that. Sweet of you to bring your friends under our attention. Have a lovely day!

Sadie Lou said...

Getting lost is a beautiful creation holds so much inspiration. I wonder, was she getting ready to attend some magical ball with Marie or is she Marie? A beautiful treasure inspires you down a magical path in your imagination. She is lovely.

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

Somehow, different angles/shots you made in her face reveals a different look on her face. I know weird me- but that's what i see.

I was just staring at her at first. The red around her eyes. But she grows on you LOL

I like that she's sitting with her fluffed skirt. An d with the upper part of her body bare with her hands strategically placed - I actually find myself liking it. Very delicate she is.

Jennifer said...
