As promised, finally - I am sharing some photo's of my dolls. I really don't understand what it is about them that fascinate me so but I am drawn to old dolls like a moth to a flame, although I am not a fan of new, store bought dolls at all.
I adore frozen Charlotte's, Boudoir dolls, composition dolls, bisque dolls, half dolls, figurine dolls, art dolls, prims, googley eye dolls and many others. As a little girl, I wouldn't say that I was a big doll fan. I had a few dolls and some Barbies but I out grew them and never thought about dolls again until my 30's. I can't even say when the obsession started but is has continued and I always think I am running out of room but yet I seem to always find room to squeeze in one more (thank goodness!) My husband helped me realize that there is something about the faces that draws me to the things I collect. It didn't take a revelation to figure out he was absolutely right!
One of my favorite Prims - " The Queen Bee" - Who could resist that face!!
My "Caffeine Angel" - I had to have her.....My name is Heidi and I am a caffeine addict. I drink coffee or coffee inclined beverages all day long, every day.
My newest addition: A French Boudoir Doll - all glorious 48" inches of her and her face is divine! Her dress is a little rough around the edges and she looks a little worn but in my eyes, lovely just the same :)
