You would think that by now, I would know better than to look at Alena Sinels dolls. I don't know how she does it, but there is something in them that just speaks to my heart. And even as I tell myself a million times that I do NOT need another doll, that never seems to stop me. I see a certain face and I lose my mind (and a nice chunk of money).
So that is what happened when this Goth bunny made an appearance on Pinterest one day..........
Yes, I know it's crazy, but that face--that FACE! She makes me want to hug her, and she has that indefinable "something" that triggers a partial memory of something--someone--from way back in my childhood. I have never been able to grasp the entire memory, just wisps of it, and Alenas dolls stir that memory in me. I see the doll, and I tumble back to being a little girl again. I hold the doll, and that feeling is even stronger. I know you can't put a price on feelings, so maybe I should just give up and accept that there will probably always be a doll by Alena that tells me she must be mine.
Yes, this bunny girl is on her way to me--I think she will arrive tomorrow. I am hopeless.
(In my own defense , I should mention that I got her for less than Alena was originally asking--she had made a bunch of dolls for a doll show in October, and then found out her dog was pregnant and would be having puppies in October, so she would not be able to attend the doll show---)
