I have tried to write a new entry every few days and never let two or more weeks come between me and my followers. Whether anyone realizes it or not, those of you who visit, those of you who comment, make this hobby my "special place" to escape and get away from it all.
Unfortunately, sometimes you can run, but you can't hide. School started back for teachers the end of July here. With all of the changes and new expectations, I am spending 12+ hours away from home many days each week. When I get here, it is straight to bed. My father had five by-passes about 11 years ago. He had a complete blockage in one and got a pacemaker put in last week.
Thank goodness for a three day weekend! I had promised photos of the doll collection I purchased from e-bay a couple weeks ago. Here is the group shot. Excluding the shoes and jewelry, all of these clothing items were included in the double Barbie Trunk in the photo.
I didn't spend a lot of time styling my girls. I just grabbed girls many of whom were nude and in the "considering to sell" pile. I'm not sure about this dress. I'm sure it could be styled better, but I'm going to have to work with it. Dress Code Vanessa says, "That's the last time I agree to be a bridesmaid."
There were two straight sheaths in the box. Fallen Angel Star Doll is wearing the other. This one fit easier.
Another model borrowed from The Doll Page is Suited Luxury Adele.
So for I got 22 outfits in total. Some came with shoes. Many came with hats. Several had petticoats. These cost less that $5 each.
