Photo-a-Day - March 2012 - Day 29: Feet

Wandering around Pleasanton, California with my friend Carol, I saw this wonderful, hand-made fairie godmother doll (with chair).  I immediately fell in love with her, particularly her face, hands and long, elegant feet.

Although I'm not a collector of dolls, I do love fantasy.  I did everything I could to talk myself out of buying her as she was very expensive.  My best argument, I thought, was that I had nothing on which to place her.  Never tempt the universe!  We went to a shop two doors down and there was the perfect little tilt-top table at very reasonable price. 

She has been re-named Fairie Grandmother, in memory of my Gram Nissen who is always with me, and she lives in my bedroom, watching over me every night as I sleep.

Oh, and her shoes, which actually do fit her?  Those are hand-made leather shoes with ivory buttons that were my mom's when she was a toddler.  Always listen to the universe; it doth provide.
