Pretty Little Victorian Girl...

Browsing through mail order catalogs is fun and recreational, providing one is not prone to order a lot of the merchandise.

It's so much fun to me to look through such catalogs, clip out items that are appealing, and paste them in a little notebook.

One super nice catalog has big, expensive prices on most of the items.

A darling Victorian girl figurine in pink definitely caught my eye.

She stands about seven inches high. 

She got clipped and pasted but not ordered.

To make a long story short, on an excursion to Hobby Lobby this past Christmas season, my shopping cart stopped abruptly.

There on a shelf was a darling Victorian girl in, you guessed it, pink and she was very similar to the high-priced darling in the expensive catalog!

It was like a little dream come true with an only $8 price tag.

She's a sweetheart.

All through the holiday season, she stood, holding a little wreath, near a dark red vase filled with burgundy faux poinsettias. 

Think I'll keep her around for awhile, maybe even til the snow melts and spring arrives!

Gosh Susan - that is a match if I ever saw one. You lucked out and she is very classy looking I might add.

I collect these frosty people, and YES, you can find them at Hobby Lobby! I love your Pink Victorian girl, and I have one similar in BLUE. She looks so nice next to the vase with poinsettias. I love the frosty people, and I hope to have a village someday. :)

May the new year be kind to you, Susan.

love, ~Sheri


Your Pink Victorian Girl is precious and so sweet. Love the pretty wreath in her hands too. ENJOY her throughout the whole winter season.
