It’s time for spring! If you aren’t seeing tangible signs of the new season where you are, maybe you’ve been finding catalogs for fresh, warm weather clothes in your mailbox (so old school!). Some of the preppy looks from Vineyard Vine’s latest ‘look book’ landed on my kitchen table and inspired me to dress my Little Darlings accordingly. But instead of dresses, I decided we needed some spiffy boy ensembles to celebrate the warmer days ahead. After investing in some new Monique wigs (these are the Johnny wigs by Monique, if you’re curious) my Little Darlings were darling little boys, ready for some Easter outfits! Continue reading
Today was a big day for the Tonner Doll Company as they merged with One World Doll Project to become Tonner One World. It’s kind of exciting to think what that might mean for doll collectors young and old (like me). I can tell you what it meant for me today! The My Imagination 18″ doll I ordered from the Tonner Doll Company arrived at my door step today! I collect all sorts of dolls, mostly vintage and big eyed girls, but there will always be a place in my heart for the classic 18″ play dolls like Magic Attic, American Girl, Gotz Happy Kidz, etc. so I couldn’t resist ordering this latest addition to the club. Here are a few quick pics of the new girl. They aren’t great pics, but you’ll get the idea… Continue reading
Hi Dolly Friends!
Just a quick note to let you know I haven’t forgotten about Mamzelle de Paris! It’s December and this girl needs appropriate outerwear! I’m posting these in my Etsy shop , Matilda Pink. As a special gift, you’ll also receive a pair of faux leather white boots with the purchase of each coat. After all, it’s hard finding footwear for this girl!
Cheers and Dolly Hugs!
It’s long overdue, and I’m finally getting to all the wonderful things that I’ve been planning for months! Sometimes, stuff just happens and it takes a while to get projects finished. Well, here are a few of the things I’ve been playing around with. I hope that you like them.
For my fellow Dianna Effner Little Darlings fans, I have a few new outfits to show you. Does everyone love the number 3 face mold? Well, I do. So much so that I had to get two so that I can have ‘twins’. And here they are, in the above photo, dressed in their winter coats and hats. Let me tell you a bit about the outfits. Boiled wool is not an easy fabric to find here in the States. I happened to find something very close to boiled wool in some really fun colors and I knew that lots of dolls were going to get coats out of that material. Boiled wool cuts clean, meaning it does not unravel. It has a nice lofty, wooly texture and is a dream to sew. This material, my faux boiled wool, is a bit thinner than the usual boiled wool and that makes it perfect for little doll clothes. Check out the coat sets and other things I’ve put together!
The dolly shelves have gotten a little crowded and some girls have to go. These three Joy dolls from my personal collection are going on eBay tonight, starting at 6:45 PT. I hope that they find fun adventures and appreciative homes. Check out some more pictures…..
Perhaps many of you are already familiar with the amazing uniforms designed by Emilio Pucci for Braniff Airlines. It seemed very appropriate to dress Italocremona’s Corinne in my own version, as both the designer and the doll are Italian and both the uniform and the doll are dated 1965. Of course I took some liberties with the suit here. The original version was part of the “Air Strip” set. I’ve only made the lined magenta zippered jacket and wrap skirt with a pretty snazzy pill box hat. Oh, and let’s not forget those boots. I hope you like what you see. Anyway, the doll and her entire outfit will be going on eBay this Thursday (March 5, 2015) if anyone is interested in bringing her onboard. Until then, check this out….. Continue reading
