Charlie Love

As many of you know, my Charlie doll (formerly known as Mia St. Claire) had a pretty serious eye problem when I bought her on eBay.  Her right eye was broken and could not close properly (see pic below).

Thankfully, Charlie's eye was able to stay open when I fixed it manually.  She could never close her eyes correctly, though, and I had to be really careful about where I took her.  I didn't want anything getting stuck inside her eye socket and damaging the eye further.

Well, thanks to Jodybo on the AGPlaythings message board, Charlie had a little "surgical procedure" (aka eye swap), and now she's as good as new.  The hazel of her eyes is slightly different (it's now the same shade as Rebecca's), so I thought I would take some pics to play around with her new look.  I'm very pleased with the results.  I'm also seriously considering taking Charlie with me on vacation this summer since her eyes are now working properly.  I can't wait to see the photos I get! :) 

For now, I hope you enjoy the photo shoot as I share a little "Charlie love". ;)

Hayden and Emma were both happy to have their sister back.  Charlie was just relieved to have her head reattached to her body! ;) (I shipped Charlie's head by itself for the eye swap.)

More posts to come...slowly but surely! ;)
