Looky here...

Here are the stunning dolls that Emma gave me for my birthday. On the left is Greta and on the right, Harper. The artist who made these amazing creatures is Christine Alvarado from Du Buh Du Designs. These shots were taken in haste. Harper is wearing a tiny locket and inside is a photo of portrait of Oscar Wilde (I think Christine drew that, too). Each doll came with a tiny portrait. Christine's work looks amazing on her website but up close, the details are so incredible - the clothes, expressions - the weight of the dolls and how their limbs move. I'm very lucky. Thanks Em.xxx.
