Hi Dolly Friends!
Just a quick note to let you know I haven’t forgotten about Mamzelle de Paris! It’s December and this girl needs appropriate outerwear! I’m posting these in my Etsy shop , Matilda Pink.

These elegant 17-inch tall beauties had fabulous wardrobes and accessories. Their hair could be coiffed in fun styles and they all had very distinct eye lashes. Some might find these lashes bizarre, but what ever your feelings about them, they are an important part of their unique charm. These wonky lashes might have caused some consternation with the original owners of the dolls, because it is common to find a doll today with her lashes cut or removed. But how do you replace those crazy, long, floss-like lashes? Continue reading
