Mei Li honors me by wearing my handpainted silks.

Mei Li is by Robert Tonner as a part of the Tyler Wentworth line. Mei Li has been retired for a few years and she still remains very popular.
Mei Li, who is 16" tall, is "wearing" a human scale dress that I handpainted. I so wanted to dress my dolls in my handpainted silks, so Mei Li kindly allowed me to drap her in my silks.

Jan McLean dolls...there is a time to act.

I am so happy that I have Jan McLean dolls in my collection. I do not have this beauty, Nikita, but I have 10 or 11 of Jan's other gorgeous dolls.
Sometimes it does not pay to "put off until tomorrow". Jan is currently not producing these dolls and I know from having them on my website that customers are still clamoring for Jan's dolls.
Maybe one day Jan will honor us again.

In the meantime, enjoy Nikita.

I love the feeling of the rainy night. The dolls don't feel a, warm, and puppies galore.
