The Christmas Present

A few weeks before Christmas hubby asked if it was too late to order a doll for me for Christmas. I just laughed and said "Probably, but not necessarily." Knowing full well I had spotted a pretty little Real Fee in the DoA marketplace. To cut a long story short, he paid for her and she arrived in very good time, but I wasn't allowed to have her until yesterday.

However, I already had a wig in mind, shoes on hand and other Real Fees to use as models for clothing which allowed me to begin planning for her . . . and here she is . . . Miss Peri Winkle.


Her stockings are baggy, but they will soon be replaced by some pretty ankle socks.

~oOo~

Peri is an elf who was born without ears. Her other senses compensated for her lack of hearing and she became a dragon whisperer. She excelled in this field, and even though she could speak, she really wished she had ears. Every day she would say a prayer, hoping that someone, somewhere would provide her with ears, so that she might hear.

Then one morning she woke to the sound of birds twittering in the tree outside her window. "I can hear", she thought to herself. Peri quickly sprang out of bed and rushed to look in her bathroom mirror. Well what a surprise it was for her to see these very large white bunny ears sticking up from the top of her head. "Oh my, what big ears I have" she cried, "I didn't expect my ears to be so huge, I look rather peculiar now."

The moral to the story ~ be careful what you wish for!


She may look a tiny bit peculiar, but at least she's happy, now she can actually have a proper conversation with the dragons.


What's more,  she's made a new friend.

  1. Oh wow what a fantastic Christmas gift Xanadu! Your husband is very thoughtful. And what a beautiful girl she is. I loved reading about her background story. It was interesting about her ears. Those new ones do look good on her though and now she can have even more conversations with the dragons and her new friend!

  2. Hi Sandi!
    Wow, your husband has given you a great Christmas gift. She's beautiful and I like the story behind her. Maybe her ears are big and different, but at least she can enjoy the sense of hearing.
    Greetings ^^

    1. Thank you Alejandra. I agree with all you have said, he is the best. New Year's Eve will be a quiet one this year, and we'll probably just watch the fireworks on the tele. Hope yours goes well.
