being the OCD type that i am, i need things to, if not match, then ‘go’ together. and because i knew i wanted to order a tan Pukifee Bonnie during the first Fairyland tan event, i needed to order another tan Pukifee so that he wasn’t the odd man out in my collection. so, after only a tiny bit of deliberation i decided to order a tan Pukifee Vanilla, even though she hadn’t really been on my wishlist.
she was an excellent choice 🙂
my Vanilla became Obelia. i first heard the name Obelia in Australian author May Gibbs’ Gumnut Babies stories (the most famous of which is Snugglepot and Cuddlepie), and it has stuck with me ever since, and i felt it was perfect for her.
Obelia started off with a pink colour scheme (all my Pukifees have predominant colours, but more on that later 🙂 ), but once my Ante departed Obelia changed to a yellow scheme.
i think yellow suits her 🙂
