Ellen makes an appearance on my blog!


Oh, you thought I was talking about the other Ellen, Ellen Degeneres.   Sorry if I misled you.  Well, this Ellen isn’t quite as famous, but she is very special.  And, I think, very beautiful. 

Ellen is part of  the Barefoot Children series created by doll artist Annette Himstedt in the 1980’s.

 I believe that Ellen was one of three dolls in the first series.  I fell in love with this doll the first time I saw her, and even though she was very expensive, I knew I had to have her.  My husband actually made the last payment on her for me as a surprise Christmas present.  He knew how much I wanted her. 

Anyway, Mattel Corportation produced these dolls and they are very fine quality.  All of Ms. Himstedt’s dolls are amazing.  Ellen just happens to be my personal favorite.  Sometime, when you get a chance, look up Annette Himstedt on the internet and see some of her other creations.  I’m sure you’ll be glad you did.
