Here are the first dolls I've purchased in 2012.
I bought them from an online friend, Suzanne M.
The larger one is actually a Norman Rockwell collector doll named Wilma, which I found out from eBay. She is bisque, made in Western Germany.
She is loosely strung and won't stand up alone, so she is sitting beside Bleuette's fireplace on this chilly day, holding a tiny composition doll of her own.
I love black dolls, so when I spotted these on Suzanne's lovely website I knew they would be the first dolls I got in 2012, and so I've fulfilled my #2 project in my sidebar!
I'm also about 1/3 of the way through my #1 project so it's looking good around here!
Isn't the tiny doll adorable?
