Eliza and Lissi in a hurry

Eliza and Lissi are late! They were invited to afternoon tea. 

As usual, Felicity got distracted by a herd of wild horses.

Phew! They made it with seconds to spare!! 

How different these two friends are! 

Meet Eliza

Eliza-Beth Cole is a thoughtful girl who can also be a bit of a prankster. She feels it's important to always put your best foot forward as you never know who is looking. But behind closed doors, she's not afraid to show her silly side.

She has beautiful pin curls that sometimes let loose and go a little wild.
Her original hairstyle is so pretty and unique. It fits her personality well.

Eliza is such a lovely lady. Pointy chin, slightly pouty mouth and all.

Elizabeth is home!

After more than a month of waiting, Eliza is home! And the best part is that her wig issue was considered a defect by American girl. They replaced her head for free. šŸ˜„

She came in a doll hospital box.

Containing the doll hospital logo.

The pattern on the hospital down is adorable! 

She even got socks with little hearts.

A hospital ID bracelet...

Certificate of good health:

And a get well card.

Welcome home Eliza-Beth! You have been missed.

New Addition!

As I am still waiting for Elizabeth to return from the doll hospital, I decided it was time to acquire a doll I've been looking yet constantly since I heard about her a few years ago.

Carpatina is a line of slim body, all vinyl dolls. Like American girl, they are 18 inches tall and can share some clothing. Their bodies are significantly narrower than AG dolls.

These dolls are beautifully and carefully packaged. They come in a beautiful blue box protected by an outer plastic wrap.

I purchased a doll and two outfits directly from their website. They also sell on eBay but there's a significant Mark up there.

Meet Anna Ming! She's a beauty!!

Her face is just stunning!!!
Those are real working knot and loop buttons. 

The doll herself has a beautifully detailed molded vinyl body, hands and feet.

Her hair is silky black wig. The same kind of wigs American girl dolls.

One of the outfits I purchased for her was the Avalon gown. It's a spectacular piece of craftsmanship in itself. Snaps up the back rather than Velcro.

I think another Carpatina Fantasy Adventures doll may be in my future!
