I don't know what is wrong with me. I loved Nellie and wanted her so desperately...until I got her.
All the catalogue photos attracted me to her because she was simply adorable in them. But once I opened her for myself, I didn't like her anymore. Something's wrong with me! I adore Samantha but her little bff is not my taste for some reason! I never much liked her meet outfit before I got her but thought I could work with it...I can't. It's so NOT blue, and though others have assumed it's post-adoption it seems pre-adoption to me- Bleck! The collar pops itself and I wonder if it's safe to iron it down? I do not like how it shows so much of her neck...I have never seen dresses that did that in 1904...they were usually high-collared and this dress would have looked better perhaps with something like Samantha's tea dress neck-line.
Maybe I just need to bond with Nellie? I have only taken a couple photos of her, while the rest have their own albums by now! And even those photos she is just in group shots...She did arrive to me at a busy time in life- the holidays. And I was still marveling at Felicity who was a late birthday present from November.
I don't know, I guess I just need to pay her more attention and see if we 'click.'
