I picked up Janet at the airport in Columbus, Ohio and it was a very happy reunion. Since it was after 7:00 pm, we drove a couple of hours and stopped to rest at a hotel in New Philadelphia, Ohio. The next day we drove to a second hotel in New York and we went to see Dorisanne the following day. We were on a mission to pick up Janet’s beautiful studio doll named Katherine. ❤️

We arrived at Dorisanne’s lovely lakeside home and immediately entered a wonderful world of Sasha dolls. Janet’s first meeting with Katie! ❤️

Dorisanne and Janet enjoying the visit. Dorisanne made a tasty lunch for us. Dorisanne introduced us to her very special studio doll family and we also saw beautiful vinyl Sasha dolls too. We had a wonderful visit. 😊

That evening after leaving Dorisanne’s house, I could not get out of my mind a very special molded head studio boy that I met earlier. Sooooo, the next morning I called Dorisanne before we left town and asked her if we could return to pick him up. Dorisanne graciously agreed and so I adopted a new studio boy that I named Albert or Bertie. His name is Karli so he is now Karli Albert but I call him Bertie. Here are a few photos of Bertie taken on Cow Creek. ❤️
Love this boy. ❤️
After returning to West Virginia, Janet began painting and working to fulfill dolly orders for people living here in the States. Here is s photo of her in action. 😊
