|Have a look at those eyelashes!|
Did someone fall asleep
at the ..um... brush?
|Her markings seem to indicate that she's|
nobody in particular.
Yay! I get to keep her
for a while. :)
|Do you know Trent?|
In the Gene Marshall doll story,
Trent was the leading man.
|I am not sure how many versions|
This is mine.
|When I play with dolls, it is not usually|
to act out a story.
I like to design costumes.
|In this case, I used some fake fur|
and some tacky glue to transform his looks. :)
|I don't remember where I got|
my Ariel doll.
To be brutally honest, I was disappointed
in Disney's version of The Little Mermaid.
The whole point of the story
is to be yourself.
In the original, the little mermaid
was rejected, having changed herself
at great cost, only to fail.
A "happy" ending to this tale?
I like her in this folksy outfit
which was supplied by a porcelain doll.
(I think the "donor doll" was broken.)
|A modern Stacie for a dollar.|
I guess I could have resisted...
|A half size Barbie.|
I must really need her, right?
Also one dollar.
|I don't need another Barbie.|
She cost two dollars!
It's not a good excuse,
but her face made me think of things
I can do with photos like...
Maybe it really is addictive.
I can quit any time.
OK, I'm joking.
Real addiction is serious stuff.
I just gave myself permission for these.
Was I wrong?
|This little lady was at the flea market.|
|This label shows who she is.|
|She even has her little boots!|
I'm not surprised her hat is missing.
|Heel length hair!|
I guess, if mine were that long,
it might need combing.
|I'm kind of a sucker for little dolls.|
Heh! I'm kind of a sucker for most dolls!
At least, she only cost four dollars. :)
|I've forgotten the name of this|
My Scene character.
|This is Barbie. She has a Pivotal body.|
|This is my child size Cinderella.|
The two Mattel are recent acquisitions.
All three are thrift store finds.
I just enjoy "playing" with their portraits. :)
|Once upon a time, not so long ago, I had a task to perform.|
This was outside of my comfort level and looked very big, to me.
|In answer to prayer, a friend opened her home, taking most of the|
load from my shoulders.
I had no time for finding a hostess gift. While I was there,
I learned that she loves hand knitted dish cloths.
Fine, I can do that.
|As she was driving us to the airport, she learned that|
I like to make doll clothes.
Her granddaughters have identical baby dolls
who are short of clothes,
having one outfit between them.
A little communication
with her daughter,
a stop at Target on Friday and
Here is the first outfit.
No pattern, just needledoodling. :)
