Samantha and Nellie. Bringing Nellie home

Inspired by our first book selection Dacia, one of our book club members decided to welcome Nellie to her doll family.
Dacia was able to located Nellie in "un played" with condition on Ebay for under $120.00 shipped she really got a great deal!
I am so thrilled that Dacia let me share with you all these photos of Nellie's home coming.
If you have any photos of Samantha or Nellie you would like to share please email me at


  1. Congratulations on bringing Nellie home Dacia! I recently received a Nellie of my own and can't get over how cute she is in person. Reading the mysteries has really helped me bond more with Nellie's character, with all the American girl characters actually. I can't believe I've waited this long to read the mysteries, however I've discovered they are very addicting. Once I start one it's very hard to put it down. Anyway, I'll try to send pictures of my Nellie soon!

    1. Thanks Heather, we are so excited. I had only read Meet Samantha, so as soon asI finishes the first mystery I decieded we HAD to have Nellie. Our Samantha deserved to be with her Sister. We just love her! Nellie is so pretty, and our Samantha is thrilled too! I think I need to make her a Kiss me I'm Irish shirt before st pattys day.

  2. I can not wait to see the photo! Now I want Nellie too!
