My new baby arrived tonight!! I have quickly taken some pics but they do not do the colour justice. My pics make her look a bit more on the pink side but she has this lovely sort of purple-y (lilac-y) undertone. (The last pic is with no flash.) She is very "loved" and just collapses in a ball when empty. The leather is sooo soft. To all those following the drama of this eBay purchase, rest assured it had a happy ending !!
