Adventures of Paris Rita

One day this summer, a person visiting our home, turned on the gas fireplace as high as it would go. We were not home at the time. Paris Rita was standing in front of the fireplace. Unfortunately, she got very hot, as did her stand. She experienced some melting issues on her arms and legs from the hot stand and her body melted and shrank. She is now on her way across the country to New York to be repaired.

Where did this year go? I've had so much going on, not all pleasant, that I'm way behind in posting doll pictures.

Here's what I've added to the collection and will photograph soon: Uneeda Bob and Vogue Jeff, Vogue Jan, Effanbee Patsy and Patsy, Jr., Armand Marseille #1899, 2 French Reproduction Bleuettes, 2 unknown (but very cute) composition dolls, a Muffy, an unknown 14" hard plastic doll from the 1950's and one last Revlon with jointed arms(I think that will complete my Revlon collection). I also added a few of the Barbie Basics dressed in little black dresses and accessories.

Vita Tosca Diva by Horsman

Here is the lovely Vita Tosca Diva. She is a ball-jointed doll and likes to pose. I did find her very hard to dress. The little tights were tight (elastic at the waist would have helped). The sleeves of the long coat were also difficult. I'm not too impressed with her hair, it seems thin. She is very light in weight. All of the joints work very well and hold a pose. Her hip joints did make a noise when moved. She is not nearly as nice as the Goodreau doll, not quite as expensive either.

One More Miss Revlon

This is a 20" Miss Revlon in a lovely butterfly print dress sewn by "Sugar". The shoes are reproductions made by "Elfcrafters". Doesn't she look ready for a spring party?

Revlon Hair Colors

Just for fun I'm posting this picture of a few different hair color variations of the Revlons. There are more than this including platinum blonde and very dark brunette. My brunette is posted earlier on the blog.
