When she arrived, I discovered that her wig which "needed styling" would never survive anything beyond being displayed on a doll under a glass dome - not what I intended for my doll! So, I ordered a new human hair wig in a style that I liked.
While waiting for her wig to arrive, I somehow knew her name was Violet. Under the warm indoor lights, she had such cute, big brown eyes. That's what happens when the only dolly play you find time for is late at night! When I finally had time to look at my doll in the sunshine, I discovered that her eyes are actually a very deep indigo violet!
I was able to get a photo of her on Saturday, before I glued down her wig. It fits well, but the elastic made it want to pop up without the glue!
Yesterday, we oiled her squeaky joints. Today, I wiped down her body, glued down her wig and redressed her. I am very glad to have her here. Now I understand the Schoenhut love!
