Summer Vacation Day 17

Today is the first day of the International Federation of Doll Collectors Convention.   In honor of this, I decided to spotlight my favorite IFDC doll from last year.  She was a companion doll, was released in an edition size of 300, and cost $150 retail.   Her name is Bloodlines Tatyana.

This doll is very special to me because she reminds me of home.  When we were young, The Munsters was syndicated and came on television right after we got home from school.  My mom would have a snack waiting for us, and we would sit in front of the TV and watch Lily Munster's family every afternoon.  It was a time to relax after a hard day of learning and be with our family laughing, resting, and enjoying a simple country life.  I miss it but feel very blessed to have experienced it.  Bloodlines Tatyana is one of the dolls here who has never been redressed.  Her place of esteem can never be contested.

I can see the resemblance to Lily Munster. I even dressed up as Lily for Halloween one year a long time ago! I cannot believe you are already at day 17. Summer is going by way too fast!
