Waiting for THE doll

Waiting for Asa makes me anxious and anxiety is soothed best by shopping... for a short time, unfortunately. Anyway, I need to prepare for her arrival, right?
I don't know exactly what I want for her, but I narrowed down the choice of eye colour to dark brown and grassy green. First, I got two pairs of 10mm glass  eyes.
I've been looking for grassy green, but found these and fell in love.
These came along, a little too light, but there wasn't much choice in that particular shop.
In my pursuit for perfect colour, I found acrylic half-dome greens...
They came lovely packed.

...and browns...
...and different browns.
These have such a pretty iris pattern!
Tiny eyelashes and eye putty are on their way. I am almost fulfilled in the department of dolls eyes, but I feel a disturbing urge to get no-pupil pink eyes.

On the lookout for spring

My Janay set out to look for spring. Actually, she set off four years ago and this year we could only observe the first signs of spring through a window. I had these photos to cheer me up.

Buds, buds!
Did you see that?

And today I went for a long walk with my little doggie. It was sunny and relatively warm, just lovely!

It's official

It's official, I finally lost my mind completely. I think that's what I needed to take the last step and... order a BJD.
I've been admiring BJDs as beautiful objects for years. About 3 years ago I started considering having one, but it's not an easy decision...
Last week I received some bad news about my health. And then I thought, it's better to be sick and miserable WITH a Dollfie than without one. From there it was just a matter of choosing THE ONE, which wasn't entierly that difficult since my preferences haven't changed much for the last 2 years.
So, there she is, Iplehouse's JID Asa:

Well, not very impressive yet, huh? It will be so much fun trying out looks for her! Check out what others can do with this canvas: There are endless possibilities!
Of course, now I have to wait for ages until she finally arrives, but thinking about her keeps bad thoughts away. :)
