    I Love Dolls

    I have been a semi-serious collector since High School.  Back then I'd buy anything I thought was pretty.  I've worked on refining my collection since then.  Now I like the vintage fashion dolls, like Ginny, Jill, Cissette and the like.  I have some Gene dolls...

    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...

    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.

    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!

    I collect Anne Geddes dolls. I bought my first one when I was around 18. It was a baby butterfly, and as soon as I saw it in the toy shop I had to have it. From then on any time I saw a different one, I bought it. Although I've been collecting for close on 10 years, I only...

    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.
