Jolly Holly Elves

>> Monday, November 23, 2009

Meet the jolly Holly elves - and their designer, Jo. That's right - Jo gets the credit for these girls. I mentioned the possibility of doing some holiday dolls, maybe elves, and Jo jumped in with some very specific requirements.

Jo: "They have to have those little twisty knobs on the tops of their heads."
me: "Buns?"
Jo: "No - not buns. [snort] That's silly. Those little twisty knobs of hair" (accompanied by hands waving around her head)
me: "Like Princess Leia?"
Jo: "Yeah! Only smaller. And on the tops of their heads - like this" (more hand waving)
me: "Those are called buns."
Jo: "Ok. Buns. Weird. And their shoes need to curl up at the front. And have bells on them! Bells that actually jingle."
me: "Ok."

So that's what we have here. Meet Holly Allison. . .

Holly Babette. . .

And Holly Cerise. . .

They all work in Santa's workshop at the North Pole. Holly Allison works in giftwrapping, Holly Babette works in the stables, and Holly Cerise specializes in candy canes. Like all my dolls you get a free scarf with purchase - but only through December 10.

The Jolly Holly Elves are really cute, but not as cute as their inspiration, Jo. What a sweet, happy face, made me smile just looking at her smile!

Okay, I will now call my writing-day hairdo Twisty Knobs. Because really: buns is just too silly for words.
