One of the reasons I stopped blogging so regularly was because, aside from Instagram photos taken with my phone, the only photos I really enjoy taking these days is of my dolls. (And even then, I go through slumps where I can't photograph them, either). I suppose I felt that it may get boring with lots of doll posts but, honestly, I'm getting too old to do things (or not do them) based on whether or not they may please other people. So, without further waffling, here's some photos I took a while back of my vintage Barbie & friends collection(s). The top and second images show all of my vintage era Barbies (just Barbie, not her friends/family) in vintage (and one repro) outfits. The third image is all of my mod era Barbies, the fourth of my Skipper & friends collection and the last of Francie and her friends. I love laying all my dolls out like this on plain, colourful backgrounds. You can see more of my doll photos on Flickr!
