The one exception to this parade of comings and goings is Lexie. She is a Wichtel doll, pronounced "Wish-Tell" made by Schildkrot for German artist Rosemarie Muller. Rosemarie Muller also makes handmade dolls, which are even more beautiful and much more expensive. I was so smitten that I bought three of these dolls, including one of Rosemarie's handmade dolls. All are wonderful, but it was too many, too fast. Lexie is the only one I have kept. The Wichtel dolls have many different face sculpts.
Lexie started out as "Rosi" which is the Mio sculpt. Above is how she looked brand new out of the box. As cute as she was, I planned to change her when she got here. I changed her wig and re-positioned her eyes to face forward. She turned out exactly like I wanted.
This is Lexie now. I love the changes. She was very cute before, but now she is amazing. I'm so glad I took a chance and made her into what I wanted her to be. She is such a fun doll.
And so much fun to find cute outfits for. A friend and I started a face book group for them and are having a lot of fun with other collectors. We have over one hundred members already and some of them are seamstresses who make wonderful clothes for them. Let's just say that Lexie has a lot of outfits and shoes already!
She makes me smile. If you would like more information about these dolls, please visit this link:

I have so much more to share, but will save it for another time. I will try not to stay away so long again.
