Another Shot

Here's my next attempt
at getting the cash flow
turned around!
I bought a doll lot,
last year.  This,
though unexpected
was in it.
I have it on eBay.
Well, we'll see.

Oh, by the way,
neither cloth doll has sold.
Oh, well.

Uh Oh, I Went to a Thrift Store!

Who is that?

Just an irresistible Furga girl.
At this point, I had already
taken her hair down from
it's ponytail & brushed it out.
Now, she lies naked,
awaiting new clothes.
I do not know if her
original clothes made
her valuable, or not.
They were dirty.
They were not
impressive in quality.
I think I can do better.

This face gazed down upon me
from a high shelf.

She was not "cheap"
at about $7.50.
They sold for a lot more,

American Girl?
Yes, from Hopscotch Hill.
How could I resist?
I did not.
Someone else will have to
...I think.

Have I Done This, Before?

Have I already tried to
sell an original doll
on eBay?

I don't remember doing it.

So, here goes.

Half a Dozen Dollar Dolls

1. A "skinny Ginnie."
She's kind of a mess, but
I like her.

2. A LIV Alexis,
nude & bald,
in a fun fur wig
I made last night.
Goodwill store

3. A Fashionista Barbie,
needing a good
face wash.
(I made the hat last night.)
Goodwill store

4. A "My Scene" Barbie,
nude with messy hair.
(I started making the skirt.
The unfinished top
is my work, too)
Goodwill store

5. A hard plastic lady
with a vinyl head.
Her clothes are original,
but ripped.
She required a lot of
I still need to wash her hair.

6. An all bisque.
She appears to be
 a reproduction
or an artist's
She's had a good wash
and I took her braids
down from their
loops and
re braided them.

Of course, the eBay dolls
had added shipping.
The Goodwill discount
on the other 3 dolls
did not balance out
that shipping,
but, technically,
they cost a dollar,
or less.

All Done

Five buttons (beads)
on each boot,
a necklace and a hat
(or is it a barrette?)
and the little one is
all done.

Although I can see
places for improvement,
I am pretty pleased
with both of them.

Size comparison,
for Bama.

What do you think?
Do I have a chance
 of selling them??

Awaiting the Details

She's coming together
(She's quite a bit smaller.)
Just a bit more to do.

Digital Doodling

And now to take
the medication
which was my excuse
so late at night,
log off
simmer down.

Here I Go, Again...

I call them "needle doodles"
because I just start sewing
and cutting
(or, vice versa)
just like doodling on paper.

Just like any other
Some are more
successful than others.

Finished - I Think!

Here she is. 
Please gently give me your honest opinion.
Thank you.

Getting Close!

Her boots have buttons.
Her throat is
adorned with

Colorful gems
sparkle in her hair.

There are tiny yellow
earrings, too,
but they don't show.

Goodwill Find

There were several porcelain
dolls at Goodwill, today. 
They were mostly priced
well so I might have purchased
them for their clothes.
Not having a huge ammount of
cash. I decided on this one.
The quality of the clothing,
as well as the style, were
the deciding factors.
She's so cute, it's kind
of too bad to deprive her of her
clothes (at least.)
I probably will, anyway.


A little yarn, for hair.

(Now, howcome I get to post
this picture?
I think I'll try another
new post.)

Gorgeous Blog Alert

If I have never mentioned Raphael's blog before,
I have been remiss.

If you have not seen this blog
you are in for a treat, IMO.
