Yesterday Aivie came home
with her little niece who stays to live with us now.
She's still a little shy
but did want to wave to you all ...
She told me that her name is Dimphy.
The cute little mouse that came with her is Gnoefy
she has been Dimphys best friend for a long time
and could not just stay behind.
Everyone here was extremely happy of course, that Aivie
with Dimphy and Gnoefy are home safely now!
All were there to welcome them...
(you can click on allt he pictures to enlarge)
Dimphy does need some time to settle in here
and allthough I don't know her very well yet,
she is a very sweet little fairy!
Here cute and innocent face puts a smile on mine all the time!
Currently, she is still recovering from their long journey
and all the bad things she has experienced ...
But I will make sure that she will be pampered these next weeks
with the things that were already waiting here for her.
Here's a little info about this doll,
if you click on the links you can read more about it.
Dimphy is originally a Fiaryland Pukipuki Ante.
She is 1:12 scale of a child from about 6 years old
and her height is 11.2 cm / 4.4 inches.
At Fairyland they make Asian Ball Jointed Dolls (BJD's abbreviated)
BJD's are (down to the smallest detail) handmade
and most of them are limited in their edition
that's why they are also very valuable...
All over the world there are many fans who collect BJD's.
Because Dimphy is very photogenic,
I opened a photo album for her
and even 'met' some other BJD enthusiasts there too.
It is a tradition for the BJD collectors to take pictures
of the box opening when they 'come home'
I did that too...
So beside the ones from my pets and my handmade miniatures,
you will find these photos in my new photo album.
(I will put some kind of a gadget on my blog later...)
Well ... In the two months that I've been waiting for Dimphy
I have been digging a bit deeper into these dolls
to find out more about them...
And I believe you can already guess what happened??
Yeah... despite all the warnings,
I am also infected with the BJD virus now lol.
But there are worse things in life...
So far till now... more to see of her soon!
Oh wait... Dimphy wants to blow a little kiss to you all...
I think I first have to learn how to do hairdressing
to get her hairbush styled LOL!
