    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...

    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.

    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.
