I haven’t posted in a while. I took a year off of dollies for a number of reasons… finances, health, depression, overseas trips. But this past month, after watching the Wilde convention coverage from my computer, I fell in love with my dollies all over again.
When I say I took a year off dollies, I mean I didn’t buy any, didn’t look at them online, didn’t even redress any of the ones I already had. As soon as the coverage of Wilde Con started, I felt the urge to ‘play’ with my girls again. And one of the first things I did was order a new dress and wig for Sad Sally!
When they arrived, I eagerly took the outfit out of the box and started to put it on Sally. All went well until I came to the shoes. I just couldn’t get her little shoe on her little foot! And in my zeal to make her foot fit the shoe… I snapped her poor little foot right off her body!
My poor, poor Sally! I was heartbroken. She was the original Sad Sally that I preodered at one of the conventions I attended last year. I broke down in tears.
The following Wednesday, I made a frantic call to the Doll Hospital at the Tonner Store. I spoke to Dr. Noreen herself. Unfortunately, she told me she doesn’t work on Sad Sally, as she is just too small to work on. But she did say I could buy a replacement body instead. Which is what I ended up doing, as the guild was just too much to let poor little Sally go without a foot.
The new body arrived quickly and, with the help of my awesome Dad, we managed to put Sally’s head on her new body.
Sally is whole once again, though I have learned my lesson. No more shoes for Sad Sally!
