Wildflower Dolls

In 2010 I fell in love with Andrea Meyer's Wildflower dolls  (her Flickr photostream) and ordered three.   They came nude with a few accessories (earrings, scarves and shopping bags).

I chose Maya (on the left), Jasmine (on the right) and Joy (seated in front).


As soon as I dressed them I knew their story.  They attended university together and went their separate ways after graduation.  They did keep in touch, but hadn't seen each other since.  They were now catching up years later, while enjoying one of their favourite pastimes - eating cake!

Maya is from India (wearing Barbie in India's sari, from the 1990's),  Joy is from England (wearing a too-big dress I made many years ago for Mego Farah Fawcett) and Jasmine is from China (wearing Mulan's cheongsam).

At the Tea Room ...

"Mmmmm!", says Maya.
  
or the restaurant....

 ... they felt like no time had passed since they last saw each other and couldn't wait to tell their individual stories.
  
Jasmine runs her family's export business.

 Joy writes for a travel magazine.

Maya teaches and has a daughter, Meena.


Maya suggested that they visit each other's homes over the next few years.  Jasmine and Joy agreed, so they've started making plans.

    1. Thanks or stopping by. The articulation sealed the deal, after their faces. Two are on Fashionista bodies and one is on a Dynamite Girl.

  2. What beautifully detailed and individual faces. And articulation is a bonus. I hope we see more of these three.

  3. I love Andrea's dolls and I;m super excited to see other collectors owning them. I have only one (sadly), but there are so many I wish I had! Glad you also chose Maya :)

    1. Thanks for visiting! Glad to know someone else who has one of Andrea's dolls. There are characters I wish I could have - and a guy would be nice. :)

  5. Hi Allennoel! All three of the dolls are full of life and have 'Personality' from top to bottom! The costumes seem to fit very well their individual styles and their stories. Very pretty and no wonder they have now found a place in your collection! :))
