Dolls. Lalki.


Today's post no 2. ;)
In the meantime I was lucky to win FB  Dolls by Design opening give-away.
A winner could choose blank doll for free. ;) Happy not many people knew by then about this webpage so I was one of two or three winners. ;)

I'd chosen delicate doll Kiara by Stacy Hoffman - torso, hands and feet - but it arrived damaged.
Torso was broken in many pieces under the waist and one hand's finger was broken too. I'd written about this and got replacement's parts very fast.

Still I tried to glue pieces of the first doll's broken parts and didn't want to throw her away.  Although I had a plan for the not-broken doll I dressed up the broken one instead, lol!


Okay, let's face it, it is just a half of a doll: torso and hands but I just coudn't resist putting her- in a way - together.
So the glued broken finger is under the pillow, glued brokern torso uder the laces and there is a pillow below her waist. She's sleeping so one can form her bottom part of body the way one wants.;)


This is the first time I am kind of pleased with her make up done by myself.;)
As for the whole doll, she's waiting as my plans change all the time, lol!


This is Dana Burton's Cecilia kit. I put it together long time ago. I was not really pleased with the result but somehow she found a new home really quick.

W tak zwanym międzyczasie udało mi się wygrać rozdawajkę z Face Book'owej dtrony Dolls by Design.

Ponieważ nie było wtedy wielu sympatyków udało mi się załapać do szczęśliwej dwójki lub trójki. Zwycięzca mógł wybrać sobie niepomalowaną lalkę. Zdecydowałam sie na delikatną Kiarę Stacy Hoffman. Na nieszczęście lalka przybyła ze zniszczonymi plecami i złamanym palcem.

Bardzo szybko dostałam nowe części całe, ale jakoś było mi szkoda tej uszkodzonej lalki.;) Posklejałam więc plecy i przykleiłam palec i postanowiłam jej nie wyrzucać. Tak powstała pół-lalka: złamany palec ukryty został pod poduszką, połamane plecy pod koronkami, a zamiast nóg ma poduszkę, którą można ułożyć tak, żeby wyglądała, że śpi.
Cała lalka wciąż czeka na jakiś fajny pomysł.;)

Druga lalka to zestaw od Dany Burton - Cecilia. Jakoś tak nie bardzo byłam zadowolona z rezultatu, ale bardzo szybko lalka znalazła nowy domek. ;)

Dear Ewa, I am so glad you put the broken doll together! It would seem somehow horrible to throw away the parts!!! You have done it in such an ingenious way... with her hand under the pillow and her asleep!!! Her costume is Gorgeous... she is Sleeping Beauty for sure!
As for the other kit... I think she has a great deal of "Class" that doll! I know how easy it is to be hard on oneself when the result doesn't match the idea...(It never quite does!) but your doll is very fine indeed! Keep up the Great work!!!

Oh Ewa, what a pity that the doll was damaged, but you solved this problem like a sorcerer: I don't see any broken parts on the pictures! You have made this doll so wonderful, she looks like The Sleeping Beauty ;)!
The doll on the bottom picture looks gorgeous. Why weren't you pleased about your work on her? She looks fine to me, she is a very elegant lady.
Big hug, Ilona

Your sleeping beauty is so fine. I understand why you quickly and successfully got Dana Burton's Cecilia a new home, she has something special about her, she is all her own.

So good you didn't throw away the pieces - you've hidden the glue parts perfectly, now she really is a sleeping beauty. And I can easily see why that other doll left you so soon... ;O)

The sleeping doll is gorgeous. No one beside you could tell she was broken.
The other doll is very pretty. No wonder she was snapped up.
Hugs, Drora
