Let's hear it for the men........

I've been changing some of my guys into their winter attire and decided to take new pics of a few of my repainted guys. First up is Qhuinn by the fabulous Sonya Giddens.
Next is Ian, a repainted Jeremy by Tracy Weston.

And last on the sharing list for today, Alger, a repainted Prince by Beautifulfaces. All 3 of these artists paint drop dead gorgeous men. I feel really lucky to have these gorgeous guys in my collection;

A favorite couple..........

This weekend I began dressing my doll families for Christmas. Since I have several doll families now, it takes a while to get them all ready. While also getting out some of my Christmas decorations for the house, I decided to get an early start on my doll family Christmas pictures this year.
One of my favorite couples is Friday and Russell. The Friday Foster sculpt is so beautiful. She's my favorite AA sculpt that Tonner has done to date. I wish he would bring her back and incorporate her into Tyler's world somehow.

Counting dolly blessings......

First, I have to just say that dolly friends are the absolute best! In the 15 years or so that I've been collecting dolls I have been so blessed to meet some of the warmest, kindest, caring people through this hobby. My love of dolls has allowed me to meet others that are like minded that live throughout the world. Pretty amazing!! One of those amazingly kind people recently sent this beautiful little girl to me as a surprise gift.
I have admired her for quite a while, and her previous owner knew that...........imagine my surprise when she showed up, unexpected on my doorstep a couple of days ago. There aren't words to express my gratitude. I was dumbstruck! So, on this Thanksgiving weekend, I just wanted to say how THANKFUL I am be in a hobby with so many wonderful people. Willow, this beautiful little Kish repaint by LN Harris, will be forever cherished in my collection, and every time I look at her I will remember her previous owner's generosity and friendship, smile and count my blessings.

The Potter crowd........

The family went to see the new Harry Potter movie yesterday and it put me in a bit of a Potter mood, so I decided to play with my indoor lights and take a few pictures of the Potter crowd last night. As I stated before, I never bought all the dolls in the original size. I do have Draco that isn't pictured here, but I don't have any of the adults.

Hubby is getting me the 12" Ron and Harry for Christmas and I can't wait to get Dumbledore as well. Really, really looking for lots more to come in the new scale. That being said, I do love the original dolls too. I think the likenesses were really well done and the costumes are wonderful.

Romantic Muse............

Just a few new shots of one of my favorite Antointette's, Cameo Muse, wearing one of my favorite Cami fashions, Romantic.
She's wearing a Tonner wig that came with one of the Trends dolls a couple of years back.

I rather like her as a redhead.

The beautiful Paris.....

Just a couple of shots of Madame Alexander's Paris wearing Vibrant of my most beautiful Alexander gowns.
It was good reconnecting a bit with my Alexander girls over the past weekend. Madame Alexander really did produce some of the nicest, edgiest clothing in the 16" doll world. Paris is one of my favorite of all the AA sculpts on the market too.

Appreciating Alex............

Decided to photograph a couple of my MA Alex line dolls this weekend. These 2 are display dolls that never get their clothes changed. I love them too much as is. First up is Music Video Awards Alex wearing the Golden Lotus outfit.
The Alex line has some of the most fabulous fashions ever produced in the fashion doll world, IMHO. Wonderful fabrics, great accessories and cutting edge style.

Velvet Ropes Jadde is one of the most beautiful Jadde dolls produced IMHO.
