Please meet my Beautiful Ballerina

Just before the Festival, Mary Righos posted on Facebook for adoption a beautiful 1967 ballerina NP.  Here are a few of the photos that Mary shared on Facebook. I was struck by her beauty plus I really like bobbed haircuts on our Sashas.

These wonderful photos really tempted me to adopt her but I resisted. Boy, I am ever so strong, do you agree?  😉  Mary also listed her briefly on eBay but I wrote to her and suggested that she bring her to the Festival and that she was certain to be adopted. I also offered my sales table to Mary.   So, Mary pulled her listing and brought her to the Festival to find a new home.

Sooooooo, here she is … so proudly displayed for sale on my sales table.   Isn’t she lovely?  This photo and the two Festival photos at the dinner table  were taken by Theresa O’Neill. Thank you Theresa!

Everyone walking by the table eyed this pretty girl and a couple of ladies asked about her but no offers were received.  The entire sales room time, I watched her and felt my affections growing and growing for of this pretty girl.  At the end, I could not resist her any longer and could not turn her back over to Mary.  It seemed meant to be and I had to adopt her! ❤️

Well, here I am and I immediately put this tea dress on her. Morgen was wearing it but I had redressed her in a new Frances Trickett outfit (another post).  I think it suits her well. I was so happy to have her join the family. She told me her name is Nora. ❤️

Saturday night dinner and Nora happily joins the lovely guests at the table. 😊

Can you see Nora just over my shoulder?

We are now home and I took a few photos of Nora on the back porch. 😊

Beautiful Nora ❤️

The tea towel dress has bottles of spices displayed on it to include two ” ginger” bottles. The dress was a gift a few years ago from Nancy Collins. I really love this outfit.

Nora and I thank you for visiting with us today. We hope you enjoyed this post and we hope you have a beautiful day and week to come. ❤️ xxx

  1. I have to agree Nora was too lovely to leave on the sales table and I think you were already smitten when you told Mary to bring her to the festival. I wonder what you would have done if someone had rush forward at the very last minute fir her ! 😉
    I agree about the Sasha’s with shorter hair, it gives them such an individual look , her looks lovely up too!.
    I think she’ll fit right in at Cow Creek 🙂 xxx

    • Thank you Dee. Yes, you guessed it. I was already smitten with Nora before the Festival and I knew someone would want her. If someone had rushed up to buy her, I would have sold her but my heart would not have been in it! I really like her ponytail too and Ponytail girls are on the increase here on Cow Creek! 😊 xxx

  2. Nora is an amazing NP girl, and I consider myself lucky to have seen her in person. Her photos are lovely but Nora is much more beautiful in person, as she actually will speak to you while in your company. I held her and didn’t want to let go. Her tea towel dress is a really nice personal touch to you Ginger. Congrats to you for having this amazing redhead.

    • Thank you Cathy. Yes, I agree that Nora is really amazing in person. It was just a fantastic Festival and I am glad you saw her in person. Nora means “light” and she does brilliantly light up the room. ❤️ xxx

  3. Hi Ginger I must say I was tempted by this young lady when Mary first put her up for sale, but I am so glad she has gone to live with you. She is indeed a lovely addition to your family xxxx

  4. The delightful Nora was obviously meant to be with YOU! I too ADORE and can’t resist the trimmed haired Sashas. Enjoy many happy times together.
    Many thanks for today’s and next weeks good wishes. I shall certainly be needing them as a few more of my beloved Brood start to get ready to leave.

    • Thank you Kendal. I agree, she was meant to be with me. I love her hair down and up in a ponytail. A sweet girl. ❤️

      I will be thinking of you and wishing you well as you release more of your beloved dolls. I know it is do very difficult to do. Take care dear Kendal. ❤️ xxx

  5. What can I say? Obviously it was just meant to be!!!! And what a beauty she is too. I’m surprised you were actually able to resist as long as you did to be honest 😉
