Damn - I won!

Why is it that when you are bidding for something and desperately want it, you almost always are sniped at the last second, but when you have second thoughts and offer a ridculously low amount, you win???

I know I should not have, but I saw this girl with her odd looking hair and I put in an almost insultingly low offer on her thinking that there was no way I'd get her for that amount...and dammit if the seller didn't accept it! I freely admit that this girl was bought for her hair. I just love it! I think it might be the same as either Veronica Lace or Heart of Montmarte - it's very unusal. There's no way I could afford the real thing. I may not even keep the doll it's attached to, we'll see.

One of the main reasons that I regret the purchase is that I also bought an Aubrey scalp just today (the long one) for Roxy. Typically for me, a Winsome Willow one came up for sale for much less money and I really would have preferred that to start with. Her mismatched scalp colour was just annoying me too much to put up with it any longer.

As of this moment I am going on a doll diet - not one doll purchase for at least a month now! I will just have to sew, photograph and enjoy the ones I have. Easier said than done....
