Please meet Yoseffa, the model "looking good" eyes doll from the previous post.
Yoseffa is Hebrew for Josephine. I gave the doll this name because I was thinking a lot about my dad lately, whom I miss very much. He always loved that name, Josephine. His father (my Grandfather, may he rest in Peace), was Joseph. He was born in Turkey and spoke many languages- Hebrew, Ladino, Castillian Spanish, Arabic, and more. My ancestors went through the Spanish Inquisition. They fled to Turkey. My family is now in America- and I moved to Israel! Anyway, Yoseffa is an Israeli lady, clad in stylish modest clothing, and a pretty scarf she likes to wear on her hair. She's dressed in purple, one of my favorite colors. Yoseffa is all dressed up because she works in a busy office. She's smart and savvy and has a big family to come home to at the end of the day! In fact, for more than a decade, she was a stay-at-home mom. But her daughters are big now and help out a lot. When she comes home, she has a hot cup of tea almost waiting for her! She really enjoys working after all the years at home. And, she especially enjoys getting all dressed up (maybe a little over dressed?) Good for her!
