    My Engrossing Little Hobby

    I've been collecting Barbie and Disney dolls for the past 7 years. At times I'd say my collecting borders on addiciton. A new doll is my total crack.   I hope there are others here that collect dolls as well - of any kind. Please share if so!

    Collecting and Connecting

    I was never really interested in dolls as a child, and here I find myself an adult collecting a number of different dolls.  Something of a recluse my collection has helped me to connect to people outside my small circle of friends and challenge what feels safe. While I am...

    Here is one of my Tinker Bell snow globes.

    She's in a tiny Aladdin genie lamp styled snow globe. I tried to put the timer on to ensure a clear picture of Tinker Bell but I got a clear shot of the pink rhinestones which I like better. Behind where I held the snow globe just to take her picture for this post, is an African...

    I Probably Have Over 200

    When I get a doll now, she has to be very special.  My favorites are my Native American dolls and my Campbell Soup dolls.  I even have one of my first dolls as a little girl.

    These are three of the many Mouseketeer mice

    dolls I have had since I was a kid. I love how unique these dolls are and the fact that they are dressed in classic historical outfits in our nation's history makes it that much more beautiful in uniqueness.
