Welcome, Brigitte

I tried to post this blog post from Flickr, and had written 3 or 4 paragraphs about this new girl, but when I attempted to post, it didn't work! It looks like Blogger has decided I need to try out the new app, but maybe Flickr isn't ready yet.  Oh, well.

I love my Natterers, and have been thinking that they needed a friend who was "similar, but different."  I've admired Kathe Kruse dolls off and on for a few years, but I hadn't stumbled across "just the right one" until I saw this little darling on eBay for a low opening bid.  I debated for some time before I finally decided to give it a shot.  It's been a long time since I've bid on eBay, let alone won any auctions!  I guess I'm usually a BIN person!

Such a Sweet Face

I was really excited to win Brigitte, and even more delighted when she arrived on Wednesday!  Her face is even sweeter in person.  Her soft cloth body is cuddly, and she has just the right amount of "floppiness" and just stiff enough for "posability."  She is larger than my Natterers, but shorter than my Kidz and AG girls.  I need to stand her next to Mindy, my Sasha, to see how they measure up.  I think Mindy is thinner, but I'm not 100% sure.   I found and ordered a couple tee shirt packs and some tennis shoes that should be coming this week.  I'm going to see if she can wear anyone else's shoes or it I am going to have to just order KK shoes, or experiment to find the best fit.  I am hoping to find time to make her some cute, bright, playful shorts and pinafores for her summer play wardrobe. 

I think Brigitte is actually her middle name.  I hope she tells me her first name soon!

She is very pretty - what a lovely win. I've been looking at the at the Kathe Kruse dolls too, but so far am just looking.
