The Dollie Den is pretty full
I don't remember when it started
It no doubt began on THIS Christmas
I was four
In my arms is my new doll Suzie
and pink teddy
I remember that doll and her name
just as I remember the doll a few years later
that was as big as a newborn
and I named her Denise.
I can't remember the name of someone
introduced to me yesterday
but I remember my dolls names!
My brother two years younger..looks like he is about to
do something evil..
but I suspect he is going after one of his toys
directly behind me
since he was NOT that evil kind of brother
but I have once again wandered off
down memory lane
as IF I need to find rhyme or reason
for my love of dolls and toys
A few years ago my first ball jointed doll was an Obitsu
that I had to paint the face and make the wig for
her articulation is amazing
I got her from Junkyspot in California
In her arms is another little pet of mine....
Who could forget that face.........and the crown she has to have?!!
Next came the Blythes
Ohhhhhhhhh, I tried hard to resist them
Yes I did.
For a few years, in fact...
I was successful.
Then, I was hit upside the head one day
and suddenly there were two new members of the clan
Lexi (AKA: Pleasant Peasant)
and Daria (AKA: Kozy Kape)
who arrived with long hair, but quickly had a new 'do'
more 'Che- Che'
a bit of an asymmetrical bob
then the clothes and shoes and accessories followed
and they were posed and photographed
and little stories ensued.
Not long after
a little sister came along
a minx of a bjd, named Macy
another fabulously articulated doll
that loved to pose and perform for the camera
But one of my most favorite of all is
a Bobobie Sprite
also from Junkyspot
Who arrived with a decent face-up
(what they call special doll make-up)
but got a gorgeous re-do
from Michele Hardy of Michele Hardy Dolls
.........and her alter ego and muse - Addy
And in a year or so she became very limp
(which often happens to these Bobobie dolls)
and even lost an eyelash
although I still don't know how that happened
but I suspect
Brat Cat was involved
So I called upon Michele again
to restring her and give her new eyelashes
And she was a darling and took the job on
right after the holidays
and now she is back home
even more beautiful than ever
Isn't she exquisite???
I so hope to create a beautiful dress for her soon
and let her pose for the ever present camera.
But the reason for this looooooong dolly post????
I am starting to thin out my toy collection
Yes, it's time.
And I am starting with my Dal - Macy
Some gals start the year with a de-stash of art supplies
which I could do easily
But I am starting with a de-stash
of dollies and toys
In a few days I will post photos of her,
her original box and clothing
and the extra clothing and toys she has accumulated
and I will put her up for adoption.
you can see her in her original costume here
or just Google her
and find out about her and other Dal dolls.
if you know of someone looking for one of these cuties
let them know.
I sure would like her to find a good home.
