WINTER ARRIVAL

Wow, it's been so long since my last post that I've somehow managed to have two arrival posts one right after the other. I have to admit that lately I've become increasingly enamored with the instant gratification of instagram. Snap a pick, write a few words - or dont write anything at all! - and get immediate feedback in the form of silent likes. It certainly has it's perks. But here we are again! There's just something so nostalgic about writing and reading blogs.

Despite VolksUSA regularly taking FCS orders, we haven't seen Pearl return to the line up since the very first FCS back in 2014. A fact that I've been very vocal about, since every other gem has appeared consistently throughout those two years. It was like Volks saw her popularity and purposely withheld her from future FCS's. So when we finally saw her return this October I didn't hesitate to place an order.

The box! This is when I really started feeling excited!

A Christmas card signed by the Volks employees. I really love when companies do things like this. It reminds me how small and precious this hobby really is.

Birth Certificate included with the guide book. They spelt my last name wrong here, but it's a bit of a doozy so I don't blame them.



And there she is! I chose the vivid make up over the natural, since my other dolls all have fairly bold colored make up. My original intention was to make her and my F-57 siblings, but I'll have to see if that concept manages to stick after a few days. I'm hoping that tomorrow will bring fair weather, for more photography opportunities!
