Ms. Charlotte is home

Ok, so Ms. Charlotte finally found her home, lol! I had a hard time finding her and was informed that that was the last one the place had and they were on backorder. It's weird to me how a little white doll with no arms is in such great demand??? Anyway, I got her and she's on the tag and I must admit it definitely finished out the tag, what with the crown and the wings and her charm. See what you think. You can find the tag without Charlotte in the last post. Poor Charlotte, does any one know the actual story behind this fractured doll, as TH calls it. Apparently there is a story in his first Compendium book about this lady, years ago, that was going to a ball in her very fine dress. Her companion tried to wrap a cloak around her so she would be warm but she didn't want to screw up her finely pressed dress so she wouldn't let him cover her. When they arrived at the dance/ball he went to help her down out of the carriage by taking her arm and it broke off because she had frozen to death, or something like that! Guess you'll have to get the book if you want to know the whole story, lol! Hope you have a great day, Hugs, ~Jody
