This Is IT! (Drum Roll........)

Laaaaadies and Gentlemen!

Today, for the first time in Dreams of the Dragonfly history, I will amaze you, surprise you, and tantalize you by introducing you to a lovely new friend of mine!

But first, a bit of background information. She and I have been getting acquainted for the past few months here in the loft after she arrived as a thought in my head. Yes, her arrival was expected, yet unexpected in the way she rather took over my life.

With her patience, and gentle understanding, I was able to take my time in nudging her here and prodding her there by taking out and redoing countless hand stitches in order to find her inner beauty. It's true, I became a bit of a "plastic" surgeon as I crafted her, added to her and subtracted from her, as I helped her in choosing her sublime retro look and plucky pizzazz.

After completing her "look" it was of no surprise to me when she adamantly insisted that no self-respecting woman of the world would ever be without her specially tailored all-in-one luggage.  With her suggestions, I have made sure, as she flits about on her travels, that she can rest like royalty and have enough room for her lovely "souvenirs" she is planning to pick up.

So now, without further ado, I introduce to you......


Stitched entirely by hand, Vivi-me is a soft-sculpture doll with a flair for the dramatic. I carefully chose her "era" of the Roaring Twenties and, with some careful research, I was able to recreate the nuances of that time. From her fringed dress, to her feather-edged cape, to her rolled stockings and bobbed hair, Vivi-me is now ready to kick up her felt-covered heels and have some fun.

So, given that she has had her fill of the loft and is anxious to be off on new adventures,  she is respectfully asking you out there in blogland who would like to be her inaugural hostess. She wants you to know that she is not one to wear out her welcome and intends to spend only a week or two in one place as she is quite anxious to discover new places and meet new friends. She would fancy a picture or two as well, whether it would be in your marketing bag or on the sand of your nearest beach!


Also, when she visits your home, would you be so kind as to post about her visit on your blog so that she might get an invitation to visit next with someone you know? (Now how much fun would that really be?!!!)
And, of course her transit will be covered by me to where ever she first lands, and I would be happy to reimburse her hostesses for travel costs once she starts visiting other homes.

 So do tell...who would like to make Dreams of the Dragonfly history and be the first hostess?

(And yes, if you are interested, I would be happy to make you your very own mini. My dream is to do this type of work under the name Uradall! Just let me know if you are interested!)
