She is beautiful! I love how you changed her hairstyle into a kind of up do, and the pink streaks are a nice touch! I think her dress is fab too  Cheesy

So far, I like this one the best, erica.  I think it's the blue - or the flowers in her hair - or the dress fabric - maybe the shoes.  Because she's sitting?  I don't know why, I just like this one the best.  Of course, the witchy poo is also very cute.  As is the Bea doll and the first one you did for lanikins.  I'm keeping my eye out here in Kansas for these dolls.  You just do a fantastic job on them.

lol yeah! generally ebay and etsy. search for "bradley doll" "pose doll" or "boudoir doll" those will get you the best results. i generally keep an eye out for the ones that have been well loved and maybe are not in the bestest of condition. generally you can get them a lil cheaper and it doesn't really matter if their dresses are torn or their faces are dirty if you're gonna completely redo them anyways! =)

and thanks, fiddlegirl! yeah, poppy does seem to be my most popular on my facebook page. do keep an eye out there in kansas! i watch here in arkansas and i've got another friend always looking in new mexico... i think in rural areas people hang onto stuff longer - it's actually not uncommon to find them in thrift stores and garage sales if you're kinda out in the country...
