Pretty of the night: Milly's Gollywolly, Matilda!
Uploaded this prettysome lil girl on Facebook the other day, but clean forgot to write a blog entry on her! Well she sure deserves a whole post dedicated to her existence since first of all, I made her with love, and secondly, not many little girls like black dolls! THEY ARE AFRAID OF THEM, IN FACT! Hahaha! My Milly was different! She really wanted a gollywog... come to think of it, I have no idea where she got the idea of having a gollywog, but she did mention it, and gollywogs don't come easy here in Singapore, so I stitched her one myself! She helped out with the head and parts of the arms and body and ... but you know how 9-year-olds can't stick around on projects very long!!!
Well I thought that Little Matilda definitely deserves pride of place somewhere in the home!
So out she came from the closet-of-wonders that Milly stashes all her treasures - not junk, she insists, whenever I ask her to clear it out!
I'm still casting a proud glance over at Matilda every now and then as I potter about the house!
Here's a dedication to ten years of colourful livin', Matilda!
Nightynight, dream of pretty things!
