Before introducing Rosie, I’d like to say a little something about her cousin Polly. Since Polly has a history of dawdling and missing her ride to the airport, I thought I’d better get her ready for our next trip. I’ve looked in all her usual resting places, but she’s nowhere to be seen! Maybe she’s tired of being hauled around in the bottom of my purse and doesn’t want to go to Scotland again. She’s survived many adventures, from standing on a boat railing in Antarctica to wandering the streets of Havana, to climbing stones in Ireland.
It could be that she’s had enough excitement and wants a calmer existence. I trust that she will appear when she’s good and ready to come out of hiding. Luckily, Polly liked to have her picture taken– you can see her travels here.
Despite being so young (she was born yesterday), her cousin Rosie is ready and willing to fill in for her. She’s in a bit of a shock that all Polly left behind were her discarded travel costumes. Rosie’s outfit of a plaid skirt and wool sweater should be well suited for the coolish Scottish weather this autumn.
Rosie may come across as shy and timid at first, but I have a feeling that she will surprise us all. She’s already packed and ready, which either shows her excitement or anxiety, or both!

She is perfection…I need a Rosie/Polly in my life!
Rosie is adorable. Hopefully, Polly will emerge from hiding soon (even though she may not want to travel!).
Salley she is darling. I am looking forward to her adventure. Thank you so much. She looks like someone I know!😜
I LOVE ROSIE!!!
I think she looks a little more quiet…perhaps bookish and just loving to learn about history and Scotland. Or time will tell!

Adorable Salley, I love her. How do you make those fabulous little shoes, they are amazing. I can’t wait to share in her adventures.
The shoes? Well, they involve a process that’s too improvised to explain. Like the hands, the shoes are part of my “personal expression” or proprietary knowledge. I hope that you enjoy Rosie’s adventures!
Love Rosie.. Love Polly too! What floss thread did you use for her hair Salley?
The purse.. lovely accessory.. Rosie is set!
Yours little dolls are so pretty!!!!
So so precious!!!
