Thinking about dolls....

Both my garage sales were a huge success. Thanks for all your support on my blog sale. We had a great weather the day of our actual garage sale and got rid of lots of big stuff. Out with the old....in with the (new to me) old!! I've never been into playing with dolls. Sure, I had a few Barbie dolls as a young girl, but that's about it....until I had a little girl of my own. Now I find myself standing as an estate saling oogling these funny little Ginny dolls for 20 minutes. I bought these four at $2 a piece! Look at the gorgeous crocheted dresses and the vintage flower bouquet. I love them! I've been thinking about dolls, doll trunks and doll accessories ever since being asked to be part of a new doll collaboration by the wonderful Cerri. I'll put these lovelies in my studio for inspiration.

Love this punk Marie Antoinette doll! hehe. Speaking of which, you must go check out Pam's post about the Marie Antoinette collaborative that she was in with some fabulous artists. She provides links to many others that contributed. Talk about inspiring!!
Also found this gorgeous tin. Love the yummy colors!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

When my daughter was 5 or 6, she wanted a doll just like the top doll. I remember patiently crocheting a doll all in white. It took me quite awhile, but I stuck with it. I hadn't thought about that for a long time. Sweet dolls!

Those dolls are so cool! It made me remember I have one tucked away in my keepsake box. Need to go check her out. What fun!

How pretty!!! Love those dresses! I been collecting dolls for a long time.Mostly from a second hand store. What I like the most is making nice outfits.
Just staring a new blog.
