The Luckiest Girl!

Who is the luckiest girl you know? It is meeeeeee!!!! So of you are aware that a couple of weekends ago there was a swashbuckler soiree in blogland. It was lots of fun to run around and see every one's contribution to the seafaring life. As part of my exploits that day I entered Christine's give-away. If you are not familiar with Christine's work you need to get over there right now! She makes the most amazing dolls. It actually seems rather inaccurate to call them dolls, they are truly works of art. Anyway, she created the most amazing post that day featuring gorgeous mermaid dolls and a glowing pirate ship. You can and should see it here. So, she was giving away one of these amazing mermaid dolls so of course I entered, I mean you can always dream right? And would you believe I won!!!!!! You should have heard the shrieking around here! I had to call my friend Tif because I just had to tell someone who would understand how amazing it all was.





Well, she came today! I have to tell you that as amazing as Christine's pictures are they still don't do her justice! Mine aren't anywhere near as good as hers so go check out her pirate post to see some really amazing pictures.



Look at her sparkly hair and gorgeous hair-do!




We love her so much! Brittany and I had a great unveiling ceremony as we practically performed surgery to get her out of her wrappings. She is sitting in this pretty spot in the living room where I can enjoy her most but where kids don't go very often. I am not sure it will be her permanent home. She is just making me sooooo happy today! Thank you so much Christine!

I'm sooo relieved she made it in one piece! Sorry about all of that bubble wrap..I never use that much but she was very delicate. I'm so happy you like her and I think that first photo is rather good! I just saw that you have a new light studio.. I need to set up one like that where I get even lighting.I'm sending Seraphina's tag to you soon:) Enjoy!
