I may have a slight problem...

Look what arrived today...

Strawberry Chrissy Annie...

They say the first step is admitting the problem. Yes, I looked at these Annie's for over a year before getting started with them, but once the first one arrived, oh my how easily I got hooked. Can't help it. I jumped when the buzzer rang today because I knew what had arrived. All tucked away in her little tissue paper cacoon with a Valentine ribbon.

She's on the computer desk for the moment with the hubs lava lamps, but I already have plans for a 4 foot shelf over my magnetic bulletin board for them to sit on and look down on the sewing room.

You gotta love the strawberry in her hand! Hubby said the thing he likes the most about them is that they aren't perfect. You see the knotted string in her hand, the ties on her dress, and the ties for her curly locks, but it looks great! Best of all they smell of vanilla.

Yes, I think I have very big problem.

I don't know where I've been, but I just found Red Geranium Cottage blog last week, and saw the Annies she had gotten...didn't take me a year, lol, I've already ordered 2, one for myself and one for my mom who is undergoing breast cancer treatment and collects angels. She is getting an Annie with a halo and wings!!

Can't wait to see them :)

Ok, um -- would you people stop with the Annies. I want one. I really, really, want one. I shouldn't. I have a toddler who will think they are for HER to play with. But I just want to have one (ok, who the heck am I kidding -- a few) to hang out and look cute. No...not going to do it...I refuse to drink the kool aid...

Maybe you can join Annie's Anonymous for your Annie addiction. The strawberry print dress and the strawberry in hand are really cute!
