One of the crafty blogs I like, Uncommon Grace, is written by a woman who makes beautiful Waldorf dolls and occasionally sells them. Every time I saw any of these dolls, I really really really wanted to buy one, but I couldn't justify spending $145 on a doll, especially because Emma isn't into dolls whatsoever.When I learned that Grace was going to be donating one of her dolls to Craft Hope, which gives all proceeds to the people in Haiti, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to buy one because, hey, now it's for a good cause! Perfect, right? Also, Allie is starting to show an interest in dolls so I think she would be happy to have it when she is a little older. So, once I decided I was going to buy this doll, I stalked Craft Hope until it was listed and I purchased it immediately. She came in the mail today and I am so excited! The details on this doll are exquisite and she is really beautifully made. Is it a little ridiculous that I want to put her in the sling and wear her around the house?I'm going to save her and give her to Allie when she turns two this summer (or maybe wait until she turns three, I'm not sure). I hope she loves her as much as I already do!
