Departures and Arrivals.

Lots of dolls have been departing for new homes lately.

The latest departures are:

Gotz Principessa Boy - a gorgeous boy indeed - who is on his way to Russia

KnC Sophie - who should hopefully arrive at her new home tomorrow.  I decided I just wasn't going to bond with her, and rather hang on to her, she could go while she was still new, having only arrived the other week.

Sheena, should be arriving in Australia any day now, and she has been followed by a couple of Palitoy Toots dolls who are also off to Down Under.

My Armand Marseille doll who really needs restoring - i.e. someone who knows what they are doing, left yesterday.

Still a few to leave home and while it has been sad, in many ways it has been good - it is clearing space for me to enjoy the ones that remain.

That doesn't mean there haven't been any new arrivals...

While checking on my auctions, oh okay and checking 'ending soonest' I came across a listing for a White Balloon Sylvia Natterer girl for just a few pounds, put in a bid and won her.  She arrived today and has had a good bath and hair wash.  She is very pretty and is now awaiting some clothes as she arrived without any.

Isn't she pretty?  She is currently waiting a name.  Hopefully she won't have to wait as long as my other Sylvia Natterer girl, who is still waiting patiently for me to discover her name!

I hope she is patient, as I don't think I will get a chance tomorrow.


  1. Oh, Lorraine, you are really doing well with the down-sizing. Congratulations!
    I bought the same Natterer girl for my mother a few years ago. She is very cute.

  2. Hi Lorraine! Congrats on your dolly sales and also on this sweet WB girl. I think she may be Geneva from the Bye Bye Dolly series. I have Geneva too and she looks just like her.

    1. Lovely to hear from you Bama, I hope things are settling down a bit more for you now. Thanks for letting me know who she might be. Actually I think I remember your post about her...wasn't she an ebay bargain? ;-)

  3. Oh Lorraine, your new little friend is adorable!!!
