Behind the scenes

(A while back I played beautician and re-styled several dolls for a prior doll club member to give as convention gifts. And of course,  I had to take a few photos before I delivered the dolls.)

Listen up ladies!   This is Maurice.  He will be doing your make up.  And then you will all get dressed.

And look almost as fabulous as me!       

  Now this is a lovely way to travel...

Beefcake is lovely...but nothing beats being in the arms of my sweetheart!

Slow Motion Collecting

I have been collecting since I was little. My collections have included teddy bears, hugging animals, unicorns.  They're all gone now...all except the elephants,the Green M&M and of course the dolls. Oh the dolls! From rag dolls to artist dolls to baby dolls to fashion dolls.  Yes, dolls are indeed my passion! 

  And yet...other items call to me ALL the time!  In 2012 I started Slow Collections, so I can keep collecting without heading into hoarder-dom.  I can only buy one item in each category per year; or if nothing catches my eye I can buy two the next year.  It has been great fun searching (and that is half the fun of collecting) for the "one". 

Here are my Slow Collections as of 2015:


Hello Kitty

Easter Bunnys

Longaberger Baskets

Yippee - time to hunt for the "the one" for 2016!

And since I only have 3 of some, I am due a "catch up one"!!
