The new girl...

 Look who travelled all the way from England at the coldest time of the year!

Two of us bloggy buddies decided to do a personal ornament swap... Shashi hasn't received mine yet...but, here is mine from her! 

Yesterday I didn't have a name for her...but, today ...she is called Fiona.  I tried a few different names on her and nothing sounded right .... but, then... Mr. BumbleVee said ... what about Fiona? ... and, I like it.  She looks like a little Fiona to me.... a name that one elvin couple called their baby....

I sat her in various spots in the Christmas tree ...but, she had trouble getting comfy.  I tried her on top of some ornaments ...but, she couldn't quite find a way to sit on them properly and/or in a very ladylike fashion.   We tried several greenery arrangements and tables ..etc... but, it was a no go.












Finally, we decided upon the pony wall around the stairwell... and, a little reindeer came over to check her out ... and, stayed.  She proclaimed her favourite spot...and is still sitting there...

I especially love her cute little "slippers"...  golden seed beads stitched around her dainty feet on a line that suggests she is wearing ballerina flats.. .. just an illusion of slippers really, but you'd swear that's what they are... such a great idea Shashi!  Perfect for such a tiny doll.












As tiny as she is ..her face is needle sculpted... that must have been tricky.... 

Thanks so much Shashi for my lovely little girl...
