I could not figure out why Pippi and Nilsson
were so eager to leave for their new home!
Pippi insisted on helping me move speedily along with her travel case preparations.
Nilsson was busy stuffing so much tissue and fluff into his compartment
that I lost him in it twice.
So anxious were they to go, I was careful to mail them
as soon as the Post Office was open again following the long weekend.
After spending so much of the summer in their company,
I must admit it was sad to see them so anxious to leave.
Their time with me was a borrowed gift, albeit a short one.
After they were gone, it seemed like an eternity
before I heard word of them again.
Which just happened to be today!
So, I could not end this day without sharing this
most welcomed thank you from LeeAnn...
Now I understand...
Pippi knew she was created for a real Adventure beyond the walls of the Doll Room.
And I figure this might be the first of Many.
My gratitude comes from way deep down... for the generous heart that put together
this new chapter in my doll making journey.
Thank you for the gift of showing me what my little creations mean to you!!
This has helped visualize the true nature of my work...
portraying the innocent wonder of childhood.
I hope all of my visitors and friends will feel the same when they see for themselves,
Pippi's first Real Adventure....
As much as the children and I miss Pippi, we are so very happy she was meant for you, LeeAnn!
all our love, Rose and the Flockling
