Simply Mari

She's here!   This little darling has been on the wish list for more than a year, but finally made her way here this week.  She is a Dianna Effner sculpt available only through Jo's Doll Shoppe.  Simply Mari is offered in just her white panties, but she came to my house with an Autumn Leaves dress set.  Mari is 825" tall and has a synthetic mohair brown bob.  I love her beautiful face, little size and "pose-ability."
We are still trying to find the perfect name for her.  I am sure we'll find it soon!

Autumn Joy

Mums and Joy

Joy searched through the doll clothes to see if she could find something to wear.  She found a romper that I'd made for Susie (my Petite Ai Rapheal elf), and it fit really well - the only thing that wasn't perfect was that the sleeves are just a tad too short!  Then she found some red shoes in the bleuette box that were a nice muted red that matched her top.  She was all set for going outside on a pretty autumn day.  She found some beautiful mums to enjoy.  
My husband and I had purchased the mums at Walmart last year, on the way home from visiting my dad at a rehab hospital.  The flowers didn't last very long, but I decided to wait and see if they'd survive the winter before throwing them out - I'm glad I didn't give up on them!  They look so much better this year!

We wanted to go out and play

But it's raining outside

But it was raining outside.  We just stood on the porch and hoped for some sunshine and lots more warm days!
