Remember this sweetie from Heidi’s shop? When we did our dual Pink Saturday posts, I made it clear that I wanted her. The story behind the doll: Heidi and I were on an antiquing jaunt and we spied this little honey. Heidi immediately thought she would look perfect in the baby room. When we took her up to the counter and remarked on her wonderful condition, we were told that doll collectors would pass on her because she had two left feet. Not ‘two left feet’ as in she can’t dance, but two actual left feet. Often times well-loved dolls needed replacement parts and this little girl had a replacement leg sewn on that had another left foot. Oh my. That only made us love her more. We took her back to the shop and Heidi placed her in the room, where she looked adorable.
I loved her. When I came home in April and visited the shop, Heidi and I got to talking about her. I decided I really wanted her. Heidi marked her sold and I brought her home yesterday.
We have to think of a name. And it has to start with an ‘H’ since that seems to be the theme at Heidi’s shop. I have some ideas, but I would love to hear yours.
Update: My sister suggested Tressa, which was the name of my Grandfather’s sister. She’s absolutely right – that name means a lot to us, so Tressa it will be. My Aunt was called Tress by those near and dear to her.
