Anne of Green Gables

This doll is a Little Darling, by Dianna Effner and is painted by Geri Uribe. The clothing and character creation was by Susan of Little Princess Frocks, one of my favorite sites for dolly stuff! I have been trying not to buy this doll for months, but I finally caved in and bought her. She came with the beautifully done gown, the books and mug, the most wonderful knit slippers (must photograph those!) and an extra pair of high-button boots and black tights. I can't wait to make her a full Green Gables Wardrobe. Anne has always been a character dear to my heart since my friend Mariah loaned me the series in sixth grade. I spent the summer reading the books in a tent in the back yard, hiding from all my younger siblings! I have re-read the series many times and have the complete boxed set. I also have the full boxed set of DVDs. I know Anne is a character dear to the hearts of many people all over the world. One day I will travel to Prince Edward Island and visit that place that so inspired Lucy Maud Mongomery to write all of her lovely novels for young ladies.

Oh my! She is so beautiful! I love that online doll shop as well! Congrats on your sweet little Anne and all her little goodies!
I too have the complete set of Anne books and have started re-reading them again. So much fun!

I am so glad Anne has come to live with you! I know she will have a good home! I just love creating dolls from my favorite books, and I'm glad to share that! It makes me so happy to know people are liking my shop!

Anne of Green Gables has long since been a favorite set of stories and the video series was a time when my family sat together to watch. Your doll is lovely. I am a new follower and need to come back and see some of your other posts. I have some older dolls too, all boxed up and put away. This makes me want to pull them out of hibernation. Thanks for sharing.
Susanne :)
