47. The beginning of a year

I wish this new year 2015 would be happy, healthy and creative for all of us!

And now I would like to introduce my new doll.

Her name is Tosia. (Just to explain that Tosia is a Polish diminutive of Antonina which is quite unusual since it is Nina in other languages.) 

Her hair is unruly. It sticks up in different directions for most of the time. .
And it has a lovely ginger colour of its own.
It seems Tosia's hair has foredetermined her character. 
Not only is she unruly and scatterbrained but also cheerful, amusing and dear. 

And yet I wonder if it is possible that all these advantages
and disadvantages can be derived from the fact that someone has such hair. Hmm..

Tosia has in her a bit of Anne of the green gables, 
but she would never ever change the colour of her hair.

One day we had a chat about her name.
"Tosia is a lovely name." - started Tosia, but then she added that it was a bit too short.
"We must add something to make it sound better." - she concluded.
"... for example?" - asked I.
"For example Tosia-Reddie." - She answered immediately and turned bright red. - "Just to emphasise the colour of my hair, you know."
"Yes, I understand... I did not know it was so important for you."
"Yes, it is, because when I think about my hair I am always in a jolly mood. So it is important, isn't it? - explained Tosia.
" Certainly. So from now on we have Tosia-Reddie." - I summed up.

A few days later we went to the department store to do some shopping. Afterwards we sat on the bench in a big hall to have a rest. I started tidying up Tosia-Reddie's hair with my fingers. Near us there was sitting a little girl with her Mom. I noticed that the girl was playing with a smartphone...

"Did the dolly want you to scratch her head?" Suddenly I heard a question.
I looked back and saw a girl standing in front of Tosia-Reddie. It was this little girl with the smartphone.
"Did the dolly tell you this?" - the girl enquired looking at me...
She amused me with her questions... (It did happen really. Well, to be precise, it came about at the craft fair ... not in the shop, but does this matter?)


Thank you for dropping by. 
I hope you have a nice weekend.

    1. Thank you Annasoer. I have made another dress for her. So keep an eye on my blog. I only need to take new photos and I will post them. It is going to be a big surprise. I am sure.
      I really hope there will be more dolls this year.
      Best wishes to you.


    1. Thank you Eliane for your lovely comment.
      You make me think that I should learn Portuguese. It sounds great to me when I read aloud your comment trying to find out in the dictionary. For some reasons Google doesn't translate it, but it doesn't matter. I like it as it is.
      Thank you so much Eliane.
