No play day....

Not much time today for dolly play as I am customising a tanned Blythe for a lady in Chicago and want to get it done and sent off to her before the Christmas postal 'rush'.....Unfortunately though, I made the stupid mistake of spraying the blank faceplate whilst the MSC sealant was still cold and so the faceplate ended up all mottled with white dots....more haste less speed....so the faceplate had to be sanded again, which was blooming hard work!  The one good thing though was that I hadn't started on the faceup, so at least nothing was ruined.  So tomorrow, all being well, if the weather is good and dry, I will start on the colour work.

In the meantime, I found Devon searching through the dolly clothing boxes and he came up with this tee shirt that he feels is perfect for him!  It is a bit loose around the neck but he didn't mind that because apparently 'loose is cool', so we snapped a quick photo of him for our blog....Isn't he the handsome one!!


I thought that having got Devon and his blond sister, Sasha, who is on her way home to us from Shelly, that I would be content to have just the two Sasha kids.  Not so.  Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with Devon and I'm sure I'll be just as happy with his sister, but I find myself looking at other peoples blogs, ebay and Shelly's site, and thinking "Oh I'd love one like that too.....".....

Why am I never content with what I have?  Why can't I be one of those people who has one or two dolls and is happy with that?  One of lifes great mysteries, I guess!!

  1. Ah...beware, they are addictive! Try though if you can to have just two, it can get very expensive otherwise. ;-) If you need a word of warning I wrote a rather heartfelt post about the addictive world of doll collecting and debt the other month!

    1. I will try my best, although I would like a brunette girl I think....but we shall wait and see on that one. Yes, I read your post and did comment on it...I'm glad to hear that you're really doing well on your quest to get out of the dolly debt.

  2. "Why can't I be one of those people who has one or two dolls and is happy with that?"

    Because there is no such person...I thought I would sell 28 of my doll collection and have just the 8 that were left. But now, already, I have 15...

    1. I think you're right, there is no such person.....my dolly friends and I regularly ask ourselves "why can't we be satisfied with what we have, instead of always looking for something more?"....I don't think it's so much that we're NOT satisfied, as much as we just love dolls. In my case, money just burns a hole right through the bottom of my paypal account!
      I am trying to keep to the one in one out system....but it doesn't always work!!!!
