Has It Really . . .

Been a week since I last posted. I am getting slack! Well it's been kinda full on here with gardening. Our front garden really needed to have some work done on it, There were five lavender bushes and a Mexican orange blossom that needed replacing as well as the borders to do. But with hubby at the helm and me doing the organising (that means telling him where to plant everything) it's now done and dusted!!

Now to the doll arrivals . . . two this week. The first was Impldoll's Gela, which I was bitterly disappointed with. The two pieces of bow wouldn't fit together, so I have to sand it, and one of the horns magnet was inserted on an angle, so the horn just swung around in the breeze, instead of sitting snuggly on his head. Also it said in the website description that random eyes were included, but when I asked where they were, I was told they no longer include eyes unless you get the face-up.

On top of this, the satyr legs are the biggest pain in the butt to change, it looks like I have to try and undo the knot that's inside the body, pull the doll apart then re-string it using the human legs. Anyway after exchanging several emails and sending photos, Impl have agreed to replace the horn and send me eyes, so I guess that's something . . . but this will be my last contact with this company.

The second doll was a breath of fresh air . . . perfect in everyway imaginable . . . THANK YOU FAIRYLAND!
Meet Gaea, my little Mother Nature. Of course she needs dressing and a circlet on her head, but that is underway. I love this little one, she is just how I imagined her to be. :)

P.S. After a lot of cursing and trapped fingers, I managed to get the knot undone in the elastic and have re-strung the Impl Gela with her human legs.

  1. Sorry to hear about the misfortune with the other doll! It's good that they agreed to send you replace parts and new eyes!

    1. Hi Janina,
      I guess things can't always run smoothly, otherwise we wouldn't appreciate it when they do. :)
      Those teeth are so tiny and cute IRL. I'm just waiting on some fabric to arrive to make her outfit, it will be sheer and floaty.

  2. Hello Sandy,
    How disappointing. At least you got the eyes and replacement part, but what a let down. At least you did get that lovely Gaea. I can't wait to see her dressed.
    Big hug,
    Giac

    1. Hi Giac,
      Ah, all is well that ends well. I'm just pleased I managed to change the legs successfully.
      The wait shouldn't be too long I hope, it won't take me long to make her dress once the fabric arrives and I've almost finished her diademe. :)

  3. We're tidying up our garden too at the moment, while the weather is not too unbearable!

    I'm sorry to hear about the mishaps with Impldoll and Gela. That's a shame. Their service used to be good but that was going back a few years.

    Congrats on the FL order though. Pano looks gorgeous. I really didn't know she was a lot taller than Pukifee size until recently. And I noticed you got her in mint! That is pretty cool.

    1. Hi Alasse,
      It was so cold when we were gardening, I had my overcoat on and a scarf around my head like the queen! That wind was like ice.

      It was only a matter of weeks between the perfect transaction with Tano (which I might add I did receive eyes with), I could hardly believe the difference, but it looks like all is sorted now . . . just have to wait and see if the horn and eyes turn up.

      My Pano girl is lovely, even though the mint is much lighter than the Luts mint. For me this was a good thing as I knew she would have flaxen hair and I think the deeper mint might not have looked as good. I still have the full set male Pano coming, which is currently before shipping. :) Roll on next week!

  4. Sooooo cute! I can't wait for my own two RealFees. (Tan Pano boy - ns May girl both with face-up and fantasy parts.) I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for dressing Gaea.

    Hugs, Lene

    1. Hi Lene,
      Oh I know I love her so much and I have a FS Pano on before shipping (since Friday) so hopefully he will ship today. I ordered him in NS with tan fantasy parts. I hope yours turn up soon, I'm sure you will love them too!
