Goldie's sweater and hat were knitted by Kristen in Sweden (I think she is in Sweden, but maybe it is Norway ..... sorry, I've lost track!)
Goldie is having a fine time twirling around on the ice!!!!
MaryMary is a little more unsure of herself - she's just concentrating on staying upright.
Kylie has a Forever Friendz head on a Tonner body.
Kylie arrived a little late, so she's just started to put on her skates.
What fun - can't you just hear a Strauss waltz???

Goldie and MaryMary are Effner Ashton-Drake vinyl dolls (with Tonner legs and inset eyes).  Being fascinated by taxonomy -- or perhaps more like genealogy in this case? -- I've always wondered which Effner porcelain sculpts the Ashton-Drake doll were based on.  Some of them, like Goldie, are relatively obvious ("Bedtime Jenny").  But it wasn't until very recently that I realized that MaryMary is based on "Everyday Jenny" (also known as "Jenny I").  So in my skating photos one is actually looking at Jenny and Jenny!!!!  R.

These pictures catch what I love about playing with dolls. There is just no where in my world where I could find such well dressed little girls ice skating in such an idyllic location.
