It was a bitter sweet goodbye today as I gathered and packed all the girls to say so long, fairwell,
Auf Wiedersehen........
 After several months of soldering, cleaning, dremmling, glueing and tieing the order is complete and my tiny german girls are headed out(no pun intended)  to the Anthropologie wharehouse.
Anthro. will be offering these sweet little doll heads in their Holiday catalog due out in the end of October.
Can you believe it? Anthropologie....I'm still pinching myself.
 hence my excuse for bad blogging....I know I've been terrible with responding to comments and fresh postings, not that I am one to make excuses, but, I thought maybe in this case, you all would make an exception.....
I've got to say how grateful I am for all the help along the way and give a shout out to my family especially mom and dad who were part of the "chain gang" and yes that pun was intended, without all of their help I couldn't have pulled this off any more smoothly. It's been an amazing learning curve for me and I've learned alot! A little more involved than I ever imagined, from copywriting designs to invoicing big companies....but I will say it was all so worth it!   So there you have it...my adventures in big business...
Now on to the next one MARBURGER FARMS!!!!! Look out Texas....the Jersey Gypsy Girls are headed your way!


  1. Wow! Congratulations, and to think I obtained one of the girls before they became famous! Loved them the minute I saw them....
