I had planned to get so much done today, but as usual, nothing ever goes as planned. I was going to get most of the next week's posts done today while I was here all alone: Ken went to work two hours earlier than usual today, Fuzz was asleep since he works nights, and Ivy has been gone since Friday morning, camping with her friend and her family.Well, for a start, there wasn't a working camera battery in the house. I did get some posts written ahead, but no pictures.On top of that I have to do Ivy's jobs while she's away, and while I was cleaning the rabbit cage Jerome kept kicking 'wetness' into my face. My belief that it is just water is, I'm sure, only wishful thinking. Plus I've had a sinus headache all day, it rained so I couldn't get my laundry dry, and it's really cold in here. There. Got that off my chest. (But it's still covered with rabbit 'wetness'...)
I took a few close ups before the only working camera battery in the known universe died it's sudden death. Finally the batteries are charged, so I have taken the rest of the pictures of today's Skipper.Here she is. She's this straight leg Skipper.
|According to her sign, she's playing the part of Clara in The Nutcracker Suite.|
You may have seen her before, in the post telling about how I got her, from October 11th of last year.
I bought her from a lady who was trying to sell the dolls that had belonged to her and her sister as kids.
|As I bought them. They're dressed in the last things their owners played with them in, I suppose.Both Skippers had had their lips coloured. I don't know with what, but it came off with water.|
|This is today's girl, as she looked when I bought her. She belonged to the lady I bought her from, whose name is Karen.|
,white ballet shoes with ties...
|Tying ballet shoes is not my strong suit...|
The pink tutu has a zipper in the back.
Ballet Class coordinates with Barbie's Ballerina, (1961-65) Barbie has a Nutcracker sign too.Hers says the Sugar Plum Fairy is played by Barbie.
See you tomorrow for the start of Soft Doll Week, where we'll be looking at soft bodied dolls.
