Les poupées


Hoping that all the little French girls get the dolls of their dreams for Christmas.  These are sweet, but ma chère amie Winterludes has the most charming and detailed dolls and she even weaves stories around them.

We met on our mutual birthday in November at a salon de thé in Passage Jouffroy and each exchanged a handmade cadeau.  I cherish my little Winterlude doll with her exquisite hair and little dress, a delightful gift from a dear blog friend.

J'adore le monde des poupées... cela peut se voir dans mon blog cette semaine!!
Peut-être que le père noël pensera à moi ?... J'aimerais bien, mais je ne lui ai pas écrit pour lui dire!
Gros bisous ma chère Génie, continuez à nous enchanter avec vos merveilleuses photos.

These dolls have a unique charm which you have captured beautifully in this image. Genie. (You do get around! Hopefully we will meet in person in 2012.)
Season's greetings.
Bisous.

Seeing those dolls, I'm feeling to be a little french girl again...:o)

They do wear an expression of surprise don't they? Would it be wrong to draw a smile on their face.

I love their hair - they really do look like they've been surprised!

Quelle adorable poupée! And what a special gift from a special blog pal—I love it. Been super-busy but enjoying all your 'Paris at Christmas' posts.

As sweet as these dolls are, they are not as realistic and endearing as dear Winterludes' poupées...

There will not be any dolls under our tree and the little boys roll their eyes at the thought of seeing the Nutcracker (again)...

Wishing for each of you a safe and happy Christmas spent with family and friends.

Bises,
Genie
