I have so much to post that I decided today to grab a few things at hand. Plus post some before pictures of the chaos that is my office.
I will begin with this tiny item. My grand boy calls these blind bags/box. I have had this thing for MONTHS moving it from spot to spot to get it out of the way.
It is pretty and pink and marked Barbie so… here goes. I cut off the wrapper and behold, a pink barrel that reminds me of monkeys. With instructions I could not possibly read.
Aha! A dr. or vet Barbie. Cute. Useless but cute.
Next just a quick pic of… Farmer Barbie… My mind is swirling with a diorama of schleich animals and this doll… I love her face.
Next a trio of Kens.
One of my favorite movies or ALL time is the original Wizard of Oz. Don’t bore me with the knock offs. I watch this movie every year around thanksgiving, along with a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. (I do CB on all holidays, since I have all the Peanuts holiday movies!)
So since these came to me not totally boxed (I have Lion, Scarecrow, Glinda and Dorothy in boxes) I decided to open them up.
Each one came with a cardboard picture.
I did Scarecrow first. I notice he is articulated. So he can stumble around I suppose. I like the face paint on him. Very vivid.
Next I removed Lion from his trappings. He is not articulated. He has a hair brush. I however will not touch his locks, I like them as is! He also is the only one that can stand alone.
Tin man was coming out of his trappings with out my help! He was losing his shoes. Notice he is totally painted silver… no swapping him out with another Ken. He also is articulated. So he can sway I bet. Note, none of these had their heads tagged to the box!
Now for my vintage girls.
Molded hair Barbie.
Molded hair Midge. Or is she Francie? I don’t remember.
Why do the old dolls look ticked off? They just look so mad to me! Reminds me of the “bad” girls in the GLH books.
I do have wigs for them! These came with the Barbie but the heads are the same size even though Midge is short. I have not taken time to try dressing them. I like Midge’s suit. Barbie has a green spot, so I will find her a dress at some point to cover it. I haven’t had time to look them up as to dates yet either. I would like to note that Barbie was somewhat diverse before this latest must make a doll to look like every possible type madness.
Now, for my office pics. Notice the general chaos. My goal is to have tv dolls in one place, historical dolls in one, vintage in one and misc. in one etc..
See behind that chair? There are 2 large totes and a shelf with unopened dolls/sets/clothes in there…
Under that table are dolls I have blogged on but have not figured out their permanent place yet. Under my desk are vintage/ used modern dolls still waiting to be sorted and blogged…
I am hoping to finish my office organizing next week. I am making a decent dent in it today.
What have you been upto?
