Christmas, 2006, I received this beautiful My Twinn doll from my dear "daughters". She is modeling a dress we bought to put on another My Twinn for Christmas, 2007. I took this picture to send to the lady I bought it from, she really hated to part with the dress. I promised her it would have a good home and it does.

My cousin, Donna, and I go on rescue missions to the local antique stores. When we see a doll that looks like she needs a new home, we do our patriotic duty (shopping keeps the economy going) and purchase her. This is one of those dolls. She is a 1991, Daisy Kingdom doll. She reminds me of a black Patsy doll.

Rita is a 28" hard plastic walking doll from the 1950's. Originally, she was a bride doll, but I think she looks cute dressed in little girl's clothing. Made by the Paris Doll Company of New York, she is a relatively hard-to-find doll and there are many look-a-likes. She is unmarked.
As a bride, Rita wore her braids pinned to the sides of her head. These are her original braids and bangs. She still has her original bridal gown and veil and her white (now on the yellowish side) shoes.
I also have four marked Paris dolls made later in the 1950's than this Rita, with vinyl heads and rooted hair. Three have straight legs, one has knees that bend. They are about 31" tall. Two are brides with identical gowns in design, but made of different materials. I will post these dolls in the future, they are packed away now while we remodel.

Today we had three very special visitors, Callie, Alexa, and Leah. They came to see and to play with the dolls. We had a very good time! One of the dolls they found very interesting was the big (22") fashion doll, Primavera by Tonner. They liked her jewelry, especially her earrings. Don't forget to click the pic and you'll be able to see her earrings too!

One of my 15" Miss Revlon dolls needed a new dress for spring. My favorite doll dress maker on eBay just happened to have one listed in her size. You will be seeing more of my Revlons in the coming days, most of them wearing "fashions made by Sugar". Click on the picture to see a closeup of this lovely dress.

Munira and Catalina
Nula and Neblina
These dolls are all about 28" tall. They can wear baby size clothing. Annette Himstedt, a German doll artist, likes to create dolls that look like real children. Made in Germany, these dolls have human hair and are made of vinyl. These are modern dolls from the 1990's through 2006 and are limited editions.

I decided today that Wild Thing shouldn't have to share his blog with the dolls, so I'm creating a new blog just for dolly pics, doll houses, doll furniture...you get the idea.
These dolls are Baby Face dolls by Galoob. I think they are getting ready to work in the garden.
