These are my four girls that I customized earlier this year..they are so excited to have their own tree with lights! they've been so busy decorating it in a Shabby Chic Candy theme with the soft colors.

|The story of frozen Charlotte and frozen Charlie: It is said that these dolls were named after an old poem, which the author based a story read in the newspaper. In the poem, dear Charlotte and Charles set off in a carriage to attend a New Year's Eve ball. The night was frigid and Charlotte's mother begged her to put on a coat. The vain Charlotte refused as she didn't want to wrinkle her dress. When they arrived to the ball, Charles extended his hand, only to find that she had frozen to death. In mourning Charles soon died of a broken heart. In Germany these small porcelain dolls were baked into Christmas cakes and puddings. The lucky child who found the doll was entitled to a prize. The doll heads you see was excavated from the grounds of an Old German doll factory in Thuringia Germany. Buried treasure indeed!. These Charlotte heads were made between 1890 and 1920.|
