It's always a good day when an American Girl catalog arrives in my mailbox. This was my first time seeing Saige: girl of the year for 2013. She didn't disappoint.
Isn't she beautiful? Her eyes are a gorgeous vivid blue-green and she has long auburn hair (and freckles, too!) Her hair is plenty long to style into braids. Isn't it cute off to the side twirled into a long ponytail? Oh, the possibilities! She comes with an indigo dress featuring a flared tiered skirt paired with brown riding boots. The dress's beaded waist is true to her New Mexico heritage. So what kind of a girl is she? Well, naturally she loves to ride horses and paint. Wouldn't you?
I don't know why but I still get an excitement over dolls even though I'm all grown up and have children of my own. I remember pouring over thick catalogs dreaming about all of the things I wanted for Christmas for my baby doll: strollers, blankets, bottles, clothes, etc. They were all pink of course! It was so fun to look at the photos and dream.
How about you? Do you like to pour over catalogs and dream? If so, which ones cause that stir in your heart?
