Firstly, to anyone who hasn't noticed yet I finally got my new layout finished! It's not as fancy as the amazing layout Kate Gabrielle had made for me but I felt like it was time for a change. Plus, now I can reply to comments!
Secondly, I'm still really struggling with things to blog about. I haven't been taking outfit photos and, as I can only really afford to indulge one collection/obsession at a time, any spare money I have is focussed on my latest. So, I haven't been buying much in the way of vintage wares to share here, either.
For now, I thought I'd share a few more shots of my growing Tammy family:
These dresses were made for Calico Lassie - she was a mail-order doll through Kellog's cereal and bears a striking resemblance to Ellie-Mae Clampett. They each originally came with matching bloomers, too, but I'm missing the bloomers for one of these dresses.
But as I don't have a Calico Lassie the dresses are being worn by these three Tammy 'clones' (i.e. knock-off dolls) that I found at a local shop. I've had a few comments about how frightening the orange-haired twins are but I think their nearly-neon locks are fantastic.
Tammy's little sister, Pepper...times two. I love her little dresses - I'd like them in my size!
And here is my whole Tammy family (by Ideal) - it's not as big as the collections of some of the doll collectors I've made friends with online but I'm quite proud of my little family! They are wearing a mix of official Tammy, Sindy and vintage no-name clothes. The outfit on the left (called Ring-a-Ding) reminds me a little of one of Ann Margret's outfits in Bye Bye Birdie.
Anyway, I hope you can all bear with me as I plod along at a sporadic blogging pace until I get the blogging muse back.
