Collecting Dolls

This post is for all the doll collectors in the world.  I must admit, I always look at dolls, but it's not my thing. Yes, they are pretty and sweet and the dresses and hair are beautiful, but I want to look at cars and junk art rather than dolls. Call me callus or insensitive, but that's just me.

I did however, find a couple of little dollies that I wanted to share.

Did I say little? 

That's a regular side table and dresser there! This little girl stood a good three feet tall!

Another sister was standing to one side.
I asked: 'Could I please take your photo today?"

I thought I heard a small baby chuckle. I whirled! But no movement!
Your ears are playing tricks on you! I scolded myself!

The beautiful brunette stood watching over her sisters. All stony and certainly silent. Just a doll I said. 

Once more, I turned to the lovely blonde lass and chastised myself!
'You're seeing things that aren't there old girl!' I said!

                                 .....Then oh! What was that?

Is she staring through your soul too?

I ran!

Thanks for sharing those great doll pics.

It is amazing how the look on a doll's face can be so real sometimes. I think that's what creeps me out a little about dolls. I don't think they would be something I would every collect although, I have a few favorite, treasured dolls that were passed down in the family that I like very much and wouldn't part with.

The dolls, the costumes, the eyelashes, and expressions are exquisite. Love the background story. :D

I like to look at these porcelain dolls but I've always wondered if they are for children or collectors.

Beautifully handcrafted porcelain dolls. I especially liked the camera angles in picture no. 4 & no. 5.
