      there she is.. I couldn't resist and mady her absolutly over the top glittery and with a lace shawl and Tutu, purple glitter hair... she will be a Christmas Gift for a Friend of mine, a Socialworker who once said, her working principle is "I am sprinkling Glitter in Lives of Others" (which we made of the german Acronym "Ivgilal") so... this Darling proudly carries the Name Ileana Ivgilal. (While Ileana is the tchechz Version of Helena, which means the Golden Shining one :-D)
