Several years ago, I discovered a sweet-faced vintage doll from Spain called Nancy. I’ve blogged about her here, so I won’t repeat myself now. I’m very grateful for that discovery, because through our shared love of Nancy by Famosa, I found one of my dearest friends, Allison. It seems that there was more for me to find, however. Among the flickr photos of fellow Nancy collectors, I stumbled upon a new collection of dolls by Vidal Rojas in Spain. I have no knowledge of Spanish so I rely heavily on Google translate in these situations. I can’t tell you much about these pretty dolls, but I wanted to share the little I do know. Continue reading
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
Hi Friends! Just trying something a little new for me. I am having a little sale over at my etsy shop, Matilda Pink, and wanted to invite you all to take a look! Hope you see something you’d like, at a price that you can’t resist!
Have a great week!
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…..
