Too Cool!

This "My Beautiful Doll" Marissa by Hasbro
was so pretty, I didn't resist. 
 When I popped these sunglasses on her,
she reminded me of little kids I've seen...

Book of Doll Clothes

Two-Hour Dolls' Clothes
It's full of ideas, advice, encouragement,

instructions, sketches and photos!

I borrowed this book through inter library loan,
then was delighted to find it at Goodwill, where I snatched it!

In Disguise

For the trick or treaters about two years ago,  I dressed
some of my dolls.
This one didn't need much dressing. 
I added a mask.
Cinderella, by playmates.
I found her in Salvation Army.

I dunno, for some reason this
picture appealed to me, today.
Play dolls have appeal to me -
that is, most of them.

My Friend dolls by Fisher-Price.

She is so delicately dainty 

that I wanted to photograph
her right away

whether the light was "right" or

Besides, I like to mess with
Violett is by Doug James.
Her gown is Tonner and a gift from a generous lady.
Her violin was given to me by a dear friend.

Marley Wentworth

This is Tyler Wentworth's little sister,
if I have the story straight. 
Tonner makes these dolls.
I love my grown up fashion models,
but there is just something about little girl
dolls that appeals to me.

Oh, I knit the sweater jacket and sewed the dress
 from part of a Perfect Patterns offering from Doll Reader magazine.

Old fashioned Ball Jointed Doll

What many people think of
when they hear
"doll collecting."

This darling was given to me by my cousin
(I think)
She has inconclusive marks, I guess I would say.
My friend fixed her up for me.
Isn't she sweet?

That's a Doll?

They are called "reborn."
These are by my friend, Linda.
She sells on Ebay as lindasbabies.
I told her I love them , though she
knows i'm not into baby dolls,
but I wouldn't want to have one.
I'd feel as though I was neglecting
a real child!
They are fun to hold, though.

Carrie's Climb, A Wordless Picture "Story"

Teen Trends Courtney
by Mattel

I was not really a tomboy.
This reminds me of my sister,
who was always up a tree.

I love the feet on these dolls!
