For Helen…. The New Guys

My friend Helen asked for a blog post. I promised to see what I could do.
Well I woke up with a major sinus headache. So dear friend, this is a short post for you.
I have been looking for some guy dolls for my Barbie girls to date. The ones I find second hand mostly look like Justin Beiber. He might be cool to some but for me…nah.


So first I found this lad on sale at Walmart.
He is named Ken… in the floral tee… Ummm Ken is a blonde surfer dude. Not this guy. I have not decided on a name for him yet, nor have I looked on the site to see if he has a name.

His box was pretty easy to get him out of.

Seriously people, what do you think his head is going to do that you must tag it to the box??? Fortunately the tabs went into his head and are not visible.

I do like that his hands have a bit of detail.

Next.

I got this lad off Amazon.

His box was in better shape than the other lad. Plus his head was not tagged to the box.

I did not get a good look at him on Amazon so did not see his… odd looking hair. Still he is a clean cut young man suitable for my lassies to go out with! Any thoughts on a name?

This next lad I HAD to get…


This ladies is my Beloved MJ made into a doll! It is about time they came up with a really cool lad!
Yes I can now say I married a dream guy! (Isn’t that what all Ken dolls are supposed to be???) I have always believed I married MY dream guy, now he is Barbie’s too…

This one I am naming James, my Beloved’s middle name.

The only down side is, none of the lads have bendable legs for ease in posing.

So which guy is your favorite?
Hugs Y’all

Two Special Dolls

I know I wrote a post about this first doll a few months ago. Then our host crashed and several posts and pictures disappeared.

I found this little lass at a yard sale. I paid $20 for her. I probably over paid but… when I was six my mother let me hold for 1 day a doll my father’s mother had brought over from Germany. I don’t know how I got it. After that day I never saw it again until… my sisters home flooded. Then as we were doing the clean up I saw her. She was moldy and the water had caused her arms to break off.
This doll is as close as I can see a duplicate of that doll. In looks anyway.

That doll though had a metal head covered in flesh covered… plaster I think. I do not know what this doll’s head is made of but it is covered in plaster and paint. This doll also has a wig. I am sure she is a reproduction and not an 1800s German doll. Still the emotions she evoked were overpowering and so she came home with me.

Next is a lass my Beloved gave me for Christmas. I have never touched an American Girl doll. I can’t imagine paying the money. Perhaps one will come to me as a gift but I don’t count on it. My friend Miss Maggie writes about dolls and loves the Springfield line. These can be found in Hobby Lobby and Michaels and are imitators of the AG dolls.
I wanted one.


He got me this one. Olivia. I have kept her in her box because I didn’t have clothes for her.
Then I got a surprize package from my sister. When I was born, I was the size of a triplet. I was 10 days late and under 3lbs. The doctors told my parents I would not survive. Yet here I am…
My coming home from the hospital clothes well, preemie was not a size back then… so my brother and sister went to the toy store to get me some clothes! I was 7months when I left the hospital. My sister wrote with the box that she knew I was into dolls and maybe my baby clothes would fit some of them.

Enter Olivia.


Pretty in Pink


Another pretty in pink.


Pretty in yellow


One of these 2 was my christening dress but I don’t know which one.

This one is short…

But this one is so big!


My favorite outfit.

I don’t have a single picture of the sweater.


I even found her some shoes in my dolly doodad stash!


My mom had high expectations for me… as this huge bib shows!

These are 2 of my baby blankets.


This one is light and soft and lacy. I love the pearl accents.

This one is heavy, itchy, wool and would definitely keep baby warm!


I love the ducks!
I wonder if these could be cleaned… I am afraid to risk it! They are over 50 years old!

So there you have it. What do you think?
Hugs y’all
