Meet Nixie

My second birthday girl is also jumping the queue. Two self-presents this year seemed a bit extravagant, but I couldn't resist either one. Nixie joins my growing group of no-navels. Ultimately I'm hoping to have at least one each of the 12 possible hair/eye/year combinations - still four to go. :-)

Nixie is from 1969, with the thicker style of eye paint. She replaces Nola, who moved on to a new home when I was in need of dollie funds. Her hair is gorgeous, as is her eye paint.



The no-navel girls look a bit older to me than the early English girls. And often bashful. Or pensive.

Well sometime one's just got to have that second present if it's a wonderful Red haired No Navel girl :)
She is beautiful Fran and no wonder you could not resist.
Good luck with getting all twelve, I look forward to seeing them all together when that happens.

Lovely no navel redhead. For some reason I noticed many of the red no navels have a darker front part , the short hair or fringe. Would anybody know about why that is? Her dress is a very special fabric that I LOVE too.
Happy birthday! Fanny
