World Doll Day

I'm a little late for World Doll Day (well, it's still World Doll Day here but it's the end of the day) but I wanted to share something for it on my blog. Dolls are one of my biggest passions and I want to share that more often. Life is rarely easy for me but collecting dolls has brought me a lot of joy (and helped me connect with like-minded people, too).

World Doll Day was established in 1986, with the intention of giving a doll to someone else. As I only learnt about the day this past week, I didn't have time to organise giving a doll to anyone, so I just got some of my favourite dolls together and took a group photo. I'd like to do something bigger to celebrate it, next year, though. I'm not sure what, yet, but I do have 12 months to think of something!

So, happy World Doll Day to all the doll lovers out there. And to those who don't collect but support those who do, thank-you. Here's to many dolly adventures in our future!

Library/Doll Room Tour

Hey, everyone! I finally have the room tour video of my library/doll room up. I've been meaning to film this since I posted my bedroom tour, last December, and now it's finally done. Huzzah! I hope you enjoy seeing this glimpse into my second favourite room. I'm hoping to do some more videos soon, if I can think of ideas.

Toy Fair Finds!

Gosh, it's been a whole month since I've posted! I've had things to say, just haven't felt like saying them, I guess. Anyway, I thought I'd post about my toy fair finds as I already had photos of them for Flickr. I finally found a Supersize Barbie (pictured above and below), which I've wanted for ages, so I was very happy with that. I found another case, which is handy, because I keep my doll's clothes in them.  I also found another Sindy (in the photo above), a Tiffany Taylor doll (below left), a bunch of clothes (including some vintage pieces), a Steffie face standard and Golden Dream Barbie, and some Sweet Scents by TNT and a JellyBean by Lanard, all of which were Strawberry Shortcake competitors. You can see more details on what I found over at Flickr.
