To Sell, or Not to Sell

She was called Diva, but she looked like
Midge, to me.

She went on sale.
I wonder how many times I have 
bought something, 
something I don't need 
and may not be
exactly what I think I want,
because I wanted one so badly
when I couldn't buy it.

Languishing in storage for years, now,
I felt she was not appreciated.
So, I put her on eBay.
I got one bid, but the bidder asked me
to remove it.  
There is too much box wear.

There is a split in the "window" of
the box.
Is she unsaleable?
 We shall see. :)

A Little More Comfortable

Let's see.  This chair looks about
right.  Would you like to try it?
It needs a repair, but you don't
weigh much.

This is kind of you.
Are you comfortable?
Yes, very comfortable.

If it is not too much trouble,
could you remove that 
blue sticker?

Thank you.

Well, I Did Not Have a Cookie

Welcome to our home.
Thank you for having me.
It seems friendlier than that
place we met, though I don't
 like to complain.
That was a Goodwill store.
I hoped you would like
to come home with me.
Do you have a name?

I have a label.
It is right there, by my tail.

Hmmm, let's see.  That doesn't ...

Oh! You are a Boyds Bear, er, mouse!
I'll look you up.
Could your name be Brie Mouski?
I'm not sure...
Well, let's leave that for now.
What can I do to make you
comfortable?  What would you
If it is not too much trouble,
perhaps, some pants?
Yes.  Well, let's see.
Try these.  I made them
from my scrap fabrics.
I hope they will do.
I'm really not a tailor.

Oh, thank you.  This pair
will do nicely.  

And you even remembered
to accommodate my tail.
Thank you.
My pleasure.  I really must
work on my taxes, but I
would much rather play.. er,
I mean work on making you
more comfortable here.
Think no more of it, please.
I shall wait.
Thank you.
Until later, then.
Indeed, Madam.

So, I Wanted a Jointed Mouse...

... and I found this one at Goodwill.
It's from the Boyds collection.
(I wonder, does Boyds make birds?
I knew a man who came from Staten Island.
The way he pronounced "birds"
sounded like Boyds to  me.)
Boyds Bears "Brie Mouski"
appears to be his/her designation.
Now, what shall I do with my mouse?

  My dress for 16 inch dolls and "Sandy."  sold for their opening prices on eBay, yesterday.  I did some calculating.  My net profit was about $3.   I think  might have made 10 cents an hour... It doesn't matter.  I'm glad to have someone like my work enough to buy it! :)

Sandy Has a Bid!

It is official!
I do not know what will sell.
My needle doodling
produced this
decidedly lopsided
I put her on eBay.
Within 48 hours she had a bid.
Whaddya know?

Petal Pink

I call it "Petal Pink" because

the one ply pink, two ply white
yarn reminded me of

apple blossoms which are
sometimes pink when they
are in bud and open into
white.  :)
This one is on eBay, so we'll see.

Hasty Posting, Again

Velvet, cousin of Crissy by Ideal.

Slightly enhanced version.
I am working on an outfit for
this doll.
I am also trying not to lose
touch with blogging about dolls,
thus this silly, short post. :)
