Handmade Doll

When I saw this doll on the sweet blog, Boise-Fleurie, I had to take a second look.  She has long brown hair, curly hair, is wearing purple, which is my favorite color, and looks a bit Bohemian, which I love.  I left a comment on her blog saying, "She reminds me of ME!"  After that, she put the doll in the mail and sent her to me as a gift!  I was so surprised and thankful when I opened up the package and saw her.

She has diamond beads on the front of her dress, lace leggings, and darling shoes.

Coming all the way
from France
to my home.

I think she's the
prettiest doll
I've ever seen.

Please stop by Boise-Fleurie if you get a chance.  She's so talented, and has a lovely blog.

Hi Sheri,

The doll is very pretty and has such a gorgeous face and outfit. How neat that she reminded you, of yourself and kind that Boise-Fleurie sent her all the way from France.

Happy week

Oh Sheri, THIS IS MAGNIFICENT!!! And it is no surprise that she is French. The French are artists from the get-go and everything they do, they execute it with finesse. THIS DOLL IS FABULOUS! I have missed you so, but I am finally back in Blogland!!! Anita

Wow, what a lovely lady to do that. The doll is adorable, I too love purple, at one point most of my wardrobe was purple. Thank you for visiting and yes nice summer but now a bit too hot, we reached 102 today. It's hard on Rick, I try to keep him as cool as possible. Yes, the missions are all beautiful, we have been to a few. Hugs, Lu

Hi Sheri,
Oh the doll is darling and so pretty. I just love it and the details on the dress are amazing. What gorgeous eyes she has too.
What a wonderful and generous gesture from your blog friend to send you this doll because you had a connection when seeing it. What a gift to treasure.
She is beautiful just like you my friend.

Thank you for stopping by while I was on vacation and your kind comments. Also for wishing my son a happy birthday. You are so kind.
I am back home now and getting back in the swing of my routines. It's always a challenge after being gone. I wish it was a bit cooler though. Santa Fe was in the mid 80's and now we are back to triple digits again. LOL

Have a great rest of the week my friend.

XO Celestina Marie
