I'm genuinely waiting for you to find the perfect Gorjuss girl for your collection - I feel like there is one out there that is just the right aesthetic for you! 

Also, yeah, I go with the Northen Irish pronounciation of "ROSH-sheen", as that's how I've heard it said from family members. (Though I do have some in the Republic of Eire too.) Irish names are actually easy enough once you get used to them, but granted I could just be very used to them. LOL. The name means "little rose" for those curious, by the way.

-gaaaasp- You're right! We started this year with an influx of black and white stripey socks, and dear Roisin here is bringing it back for the end! LOL. Actually, in all seriousness? It wasn't until I start photographing my dolls, and seeing others photos, that I realised just how often stripey socks were used for dolls.

I knew the original artwork is by a lady in Scotland - I’ve been a fan of her stuff for years.  So neat!

The artist is wonderful - weirdly she never shows up at the big art related comic con in Glasgow. Huh. I wonder if she's ever been invited.

There's at least... one I have my eye on right now. She's got differently coloured hair but this one is a more natural colour compared to the fantasy colours of my Alice and Ashling. I shall start putting pennies to the side and see what happens.

Honestly, I think my Mum likes my Gorjuss girls more than I do, they're the first she looks to when she looks for doll ideas for me. Can't say I blame her - they are very stunning. 

Also? I would be so interested in reading that.

Thank you! I was very lucky this year (though I've still to show two small plush.) The Doctor is one of Mattel's Barbie Signature collection line. She's a Gold Label doll, so there's no more than ... 20,000 units of her worldwide. Which surprised me a little because the BBC is under a belief that no one would want merch, and yet... Not complaining, just surprised.

Olivia's Big Cup

So while not technically a dolly related gift - this friend makes a habit of sending a new ornament each year - it's become one because... Well, it makes an excellent mug for Olivia for her tea while reading.

(Yes, that's the state my friend is from. I like the designs on the cup. Olivia just says it might give her a decent of tea.)
