Inspired Writing

Huguette loved her dolls, they were her constant companions and I believe that one of her dolls even talked with her. After her mother died she could no longer greet the outside world and chose the company of her dolls. She visited her favorite doll shop when she was a child, Au Nain Bleu in Paris, where she was born, and later, purchased their French dolls via mail order. I am currently writing an inspired story with her and hope to have it finished soon.
