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.
|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!|
|She's missing her shoes too.|
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.
