Bonjour, mes amis! Ellowyne Wilde here. It’s been a long time, n’est ce pas? I thought I would chime in today with an update on Laurie’s dolly adventures—oh, wait. Sorry, my bad. There haven’t been any adventures. Why’s that, you ask? Because she was too busy trying to perfect her Christmas story this past winter and spring that she hasn’t taken the time to play. And then! Then!
Then she packed. Us. Away.
Can you believe it?
“Only for a little while,” she promised. And she removed our accessories.
“Just until we move into a rental house.” And she wrapped up our furniture.
“Look on the bright side—you can still see the goings-on around here.” And she stuck us in the—gasp—doll cabinet!
At least she had the decency to look contrite.
And now that she’s not moving? Dare we hope she’ll free us? Bring back our humble abode?
Nope! Claims she doesn’t want to put a new set of holes into the walls she freshly patched and painted.
Oh sure, she stops by our cramped quarters now and then, looking a little put-out (like she’s the one who lost all her belongings), but it’s not the same as when she could pose us, and decorate for us, and imagine with us. We’ve been guaranteed a kitchen and fireplace when we finally move. Hmm, methinks I’ve heard that one before.
But you know what really boils my vinyl? The fact she’s letting the Senson girls—those mischief-makers—run free. Cinnamon joined us this spring, Mistletoe got a new outfit, and Piper got a new hairdo.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Laurie had found a new favorite doll.
Time will tell I suppose. Maybe Christmas…2017? Maybe by then, we Tonner girls will be warming our non-articulated toes by an LED-fed fireplace befitting dolls of our caliber.
