Allison is a secretary in a fancy, fast-paced ad agency in a huge city with buildings taller than the eye can see.  The people who Allison works for are usually dressed in black and white and have mouths that rarely curl up at the sides to form a smile.  Most days Allison will quietly make xeroxes, coffee and answer questions, but on some days Allison simply can not tolerate the seriousness, so she wears her bear hoodie and her polka dot tights and then counts how many mouths she can make curve upward.

I had a hard time photographing Allison, I don't know why.  I think she is cuter in person.   It has been snowing off and on today.  Snowing!  I'm actually strangely excited even though I really can't stand to be cold and scraping ice off of the windshield of my car gives me the chills and makes me a little grumpy.   But, I am ready for everything to be covered in a blanket of white.  

Allison is available here in my Etsy Shop.

She looks great! Isn't it funny how some dolls can be so un-photogenic? And snow? Where do you live?! I am not ready for that- there is still all the leaves to rake :-)
