Doll-A-Day 2017 #289:Pix E. Flutters

  Whew! It was a busy day. I have been trying to let go of some things, as well as getting rid of some other things around here that aren't specifically mine,so today I did a load of photographs for Ebay listings.(Some of our stuff is on right now, so you can check it out HERE. Maybe something you fell in love with here on the blog will be on there!) In the afternoon I got a call from my friend Lori who cryptically asked,"Are you supposed to be somewhere?" I couldn't think where at first, and then it hit me: I was supposed to take our cat Mow in for his shots today! It was about a quarter to three by this time, so I had totally missed it.  Lori sorted me out another appointment at 3:30,so I had to run poor Mow in for his shots. .He was a really good boy,I have to say. He didn't even cry.
  So I came home, picked up MORE walnuts,and got back to work. I have to admit to having had disgusting looking hands  for the last few days from hulling walnuts. These are black walnuts, not the kind that are sold in the stores. Those are English walnuts. Black walnuts grow around here and have green hulls that have to dry up before the nuts are their best to eat. Mine were taking too long to dry out, and getting moldy, so I hulled a bunch of them Should have used gloves I guess, but I am impatient,impulsive,, and can't do anything in gloves! As a result, my hands have been stained a dark brown from the walnut juice. (To give you an idea, walnut furniture stain is black and makes for really dark furniture.) It's slowly wearing off, but I have been apologizing to people I come in contact with for the nasty looking state of my hands. Lori even said today,"You're hands are clean." Sarcastic.
  Today's doll is Pix E. Flutters.


She's a Laloopsey Girls doll.

The daisies in her hair are not removable.

Some of you may be saying, "She's not Pix E. Flutters! She's Jewel Sparkles!" Well, you'd be half right. She's Pix, but she's wearing Jewel's dress.

Look at those freckles!
The Lalaoopsey Girls are 9" tall.

She's missing her shoes too.
I really loved the Lalaoopsey dolls the first time I saw them. I think the first one I saw was Pillow Featherbed.  I didn't buy her then, but I ended up with one, because I shop at thrift stores. That's how I got most of my Lalaoopsey dolls,including minis, (I did get some of those new.),little sister dolls,rag dolls,and this girl. She's my first Lalaoopsey Girls doll.

Ta da!
The Lalaoopsey Girls were released in 2014.


These dolls are supposed to be a bit older that the original Lalaoopsey dolls.



The long, lanky look of the Girls, and the plastic string hair, reminds me of Betty Spaghetti.







She was found at my favourite Goodwill in a tub full of dolls. She 'inherited' some of their hair. Her own hair is plastic,and unlike Betty Spaghetti, she has molded yarn looking hair.

I don't feel the need to have a lot of these Girls, but it's nice to have one at least.


  See you tomorrow for another doll.

  1. Must be getting cooler where you are, or her hair would be all yellow. I love these dolls!

    1. It is! I didn't realize she had colour change hair. I'm going to have to check that out now. The trouble will be getting it warm! It's freezing here.
