Joycee and I had talked prior to Michigan, and I was able to acquire one of her gorgeous dolls as part of this trip....her name is "Anna Belle", named after my mother who had a little piece of silver hair appear in her hairline in her 30s, just the opposite of Joycee's doll, but the name was instantaneous! Isn't she fabulous! I had taken photos of her at Ghoultide and Machinaw City and they all came out with a weird golden color (Halloween spooks perhaps?), so I took new pictures that show her beauty!
Pinch, pinch, she is mine!!!! For any of you that have admired Joycee's dolls via a photograph, I can tell you that they are even better in person-absolutely fabulous! I also got to meet two other creations by Joycee, and they were equally as marvelous!
The only problem with Anna Belle is that she is loved TOO much by the Monkey-Cats, Jake and Elwood. I had her out of the cabinet for just minutes to photograph her and just that quick Jake jumped up to nuzzle with her...and to try to groom her hair!!! I have a large curved glass cabinet in the living room so she resides on the top shelf and seems to hum inaudible sounds that only the boys can hear to tease them. Truly, I found both of them sitting in front of the cabinet looking up at her and then turning back to me as if to tell me to make her stop! You have to love a doll with that sort of ability! I should call her, "Anna Belle, the Cat Whisperer" !!
I hope you enjoyed seeing her, and I wish for you to meet a kindred spirit in your future like I felt I have in Joycee.
It is back to the studio for me today so I will post what I'm up to next later this week. Have a great week all!
