A couple of days ago I was 'tagged' by Farrah Lily at Cozy Comforts and Dolls blog, which can be found here: http://cozycomfortsanddolls.blogspot.com.es
The tag is to:
1. List 3 favourite dolls from the ones you got last year.
2. List 3 dolls currently on your wishlist.
3. Tag 5 people to do the same thing! (Anyone with a home on the web, not just bloggers, can be tagged!)
So here goes, these aren't in any particular order:
1. My 3 favourite dolls from ones I got last year.....
Of the three Sasha dolls that came to live here in July 2014, my favourite is definitely Núria, my beautiful redhead Ballet girl from 1969. I saw her pop up on Sarah of Vintage Sasha's blog and knew immediately that she was for me. She has such an expressive face, one moment she looks tranquil or sometimes sad, but she can also look quite annoyed too, it just depends on how the light hits her beautiful features!
Another favourite is Ellie, my Little Darling painted by Dianna Effner. When I saw her up for sale on a BJD forum back in I was immediately smitten and contacted the seller about her. I wanted her so badly but was a bit short of the asking price, but the seller was lovely and agreed to wait a week or so until I'd sold one of my BJDs to get the balance! Fortunately I sold a doll really quickly and this little beauty came to live her in Spain. Readers of my blog will know that she's put me through some angst in the earlier part of this year, but I have to say that I've no regrets adopting her, I love her!!!
My next favourite of the three has got to be another of my Little Darlings!! It is in fact Reece, my factory painted #2 sculpt which was released for the UFDC back in July 2014. I saw several fro sale on Ebay and could see the potential in this little sweetie, so I decided to contact the UFDC directly and bought one from them. As soon as she arrived home I changed her wig, then I enhanced her eyes slightly with glaze to bring them to life. I love this girl too, she's so sweet and cheeky looking!!!
2. Three dolls that are on my wish list.....
Now this is hard because I am not very good with Wish Lists....I tend to make a decision that I want to adopt someone then I will go all out to find that doll and adopt it if I have the money at the time! If the doll becomes available and I don't have the funds then I will do my best to find them, usually by selling a doll that I know I can replace if I miss too much!!! However, if money were no object, I would like a girl just like this one, she belongs to a lovely dolly friend who I'm sure won't mind me sharing his girl here.....I do believe though that if, in the unlikely event that this doll became available for adoption, there would be a very long queue!!!
This is Steve's gorgeous No Philtrum Sasha from the 1960s......love her!!!
Another doll that I suppose we could say is on my Wish List, although she is actually already ordered and deposit paid, is this lovely girl being painted by the artist Lana Dobbs. She's a tanned Little Darling #1 sculpt. I have already been waiting 15 months so hopefully I'll have her by Christmas!!
And finally, one day I would like an early brunette Sasha with non falling hair and a wider face!! Not asking much eh? ;) The one below belongs to another lovely dolly friend, Kendal, and I'm sure she'll not mind me using a photo of one of her lovely girls who fits my description perfectly!!!
