Pippi






Photobucket





I would like you to meet a very special Friend of mine.

She has the most lovely red hair and freckles

 sprinkled across her nose.

And she rescued me from a mighty Sea of Mayhem in my

   Doll Room,
with a Happy Attitude even.

In return, I made her a Birthday Party dress,

per her Instructions,
while she fidgeted impatiently in her Fairy-Travel-Trunk-House.
.


Photobucket


(flocking tights and undies all non-removeable)

The children insisted on naming her Pippi.
She thanked them by dancing her heart out for them
on their Birthdays.


Photobucket


.I think she was pleased with her Dress gift,
but we filled her secret treasure bag full
for good measure.


Photobucket



And we all Prayed she would Never leave.


Photobucket


But late at night, I heard her shining up the handles
 of her Travel Trunk....

Photobucket

She would often pause by the kitchen window listening for Something...or Someone.

Photobucket


The children and I knew Pippi would have to follow her Heart.


Photobucket
And if she has to go to that Voice calling at the Window...

She will have left us with...
The flame from her hair
that renewed the Fires of Inspiration in my Doll Room.
Her exuberant dancing that encouraged us to entirely celebrate
 one another
 without reservation.
And she proved to our own human Pippi child
 (who always has ketchup on her nose)
that being a little different can be a real BLESSING.
We love you, Pippi...
and we are so very Thankful to have known you!

Because of the wraps,

she is poseable just  enough for dressing

and gentle movement in my hand.
