Look at you girls all dressed up for Christmas! The McCall girls are excited for Christmas! A Barbara, a Betsy, and a little Linda. Our Pamela, Nellie, and Vera. And a Heartstrings Eva, a Madame Alexander Fancy Nancy, a Helen Kish, a Heidi Plusczok, and a Berdine Creedy. Such a great way to explore different doll designers! We are going to post lots of photos because the girls all look so lovely and we haven't seen them for a while...

Dolltown's little Vera is a Tonner Linda McCall. She arrived with big sisters Betsy and Barbara last year (okay, I'll have to check those relationships) and we often see her playing with Gabby and Lilac Moon.

Geri's Arial arrived! This is the face I chose after I discovered the Little Darlings, the lovely doll sculpts by Dianna Effner. Dianna has taught several doll artists to paint these cute faces. Most of the artists have a waiting list. I got on Geri Uribe's list last January. Knowing this little dolly was coming, eventually, helped us choose the other dolls we wanted for our stories here. And the Little Darlings are a hands down favorite of ours. So easy to create characters from these...

It's little Linda McCall, with McCall's Betsy and Barbara. Also Paola Reina Liu and Agnes Dreary in a pink ribbon! In Dolltown, that's Pamela, Nellie, and little Vera. And Ling in a plaid skirt and Vikka in her black boots.

A classic Betsy McCall! We call her Pamela and she came with her friend and a little Linda, pictured here. Pamela looks a little older so she got to wear this fancy grown up looking sequined dress. She was the envy of the other little girls...
