I'm in Trouble

After promising that I wouldn't buy any more dolls right now, I did it anyway. Sophia the First kept calling me. Of course I was hoping that the Amazon package would arrive during the day; but, no--it had to come at the exact time my husband came home from work. My head was full of possible explanations. However, my mouth wouldn't cooperate, so instead I apologized. My husband responded with a disappointed look that lasted the whole evening. As soon as possible, I went to my Amazon account to cancel Sophia the First's adorable castle. I was so relieved to see it was out of stock. All I need is another giant box on my front doorstep. Besides, it's extremely hard to hide a castle.

Jill Found a Doll for her Mom

My daughter attended a music fest in Belgium. She took a picture of this doll for me (don't know if she bought it for me, though). I think it could be a Barbie world doll due to the facial features. Will have to do some identification research when I have the time. It's just sweet that Jill thinks about dolls for her mom when she's out and about!

Tangkou Treasures

I subscribe to too many doll hunt emails through eBay. Most of them I file away as dreams. However, now I'm dreaming Tangkou dolls. They look like Blythe, but they stand on their own, too. Plus, they are less expensive. A sad commentary is that I'm not sure I own one. Most of my dolls are in a climate-controlled storage locker back in Denver. At one point, my son and I created an extensive doll collection spreadsheet. But towards the end of my move to Santa Fe, what with all the normal packing confusion, some of my dolls were overlooked and not added to the list. A project for another day. I look forward to being reunited with my storage dolls. Any day is a doll day!

Ever After High

Just came across these cuties when I was shopping for house accessories at Target. When I came home, I went directly to Amazon and added all Ever After High dolls to my wish list. I figure that if I can't collect any dolls right now because we don't have a doll room yet, then at least I can wish them into being! Plus, my birthday and Christmas are coming up in December. Who knows, right?  I also added the Monster High dolls, as well. I now have fifty dolls on my wishing list. Collecting dolls is the best hobby ever!
