My new obsession - Blythe. -sigh- I'm kinda in love :)
And my 2 petites and my neo all arrived together today! So happy :) I had gone to the post office to pick up the parcels I'd missed yesterday, and the postman said 'I think we have a Special Delivery for you, disappeared for a few minute, and came back with another 2 parcels, one of which I could tell from the sender was the one I was most looking forward to, and wasn't expecting for a few more days.
This is Yuki, named after the white cat in the Studio Ghibli film The Cat Returns. Her name means snow and also happiness and good fortune. She is a Takara Petite Blythe Sewing My Way. Just love the teeny dress from and pin cushion.
This is Sakura. She is a Petite Blythe Carousel Lucy. Love her hair. She is so Japanese looking, just had to give her the most Japanese name we know. It means Cherry Blossom :)
Ans this..... I LOVE this doll so much. Never thought I'd be able to afford a Neo Blythe, but after much research (and I mean HOURS. And hours. And then some more. In fact I've not done much else for weeks!), I chose Primadolly Winsome Willow (thanks Martha for the advice :) ).
She came from a lovely Ebay seller in Hong Kong in her original Takara shipper - another thing that made me smile.
She is beautiful. We have named her Mei after the character in My Neighbour Totoro. It is Japanese for 'dance' and Vietnamese for 'golden flower.' Perfect for her. And also she came in May! Her hair is the same colour as mine and Ruth's.
I also had a package from Miss Blythe, with new eyechips for Mei, some clothes and the cutest re-ment cat. And as I've been typing, I've had ANOTHER parcel arrive with a cute t-shirt and hoody from Blythestation. I am so happy today :) :) :)
Haven't taken any of my girls out of their boxes yet - kind of scared too! Sure that won't last long.
More photos coming VERY soon I'm sure :)
Have a happy Blythe day (I have now decided that the 27th May each year should be Blythe day, as that's when my girls all have their birthday :) )
