Well, I was hoping to get more dolls done for the Vegas trip tomorrow but will just be bringing the 2 re-roots and some custom Blythes. I’m just going for one night so it’ll be a quick trip and then back to more re-rooting. I think I may have upwards of 11 dolls to re-root this month in commissions so it will be a busy month. Busy will keep me from buying, (hopefully…) and that’s a good thing. There’s some Close-Clipped Sheep momokos that I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection- particularly the kimono girls but I’ve over extended my self already with getting the Kenner Blythe so sadly I may have to miss out on them. But who knows, maybe I’ll win loads of money in Vegas. Although I don’t plan on playing any slots as I don’t think we’ll have time to.
And here’s Shannon, my newly beloved vintage Kenner! I have her hair in pigtails and she’s looking so much like my 4 year old. I wonder if grandma will agree. Of course, my living dollies are way cuter than any plastic doll could ever be and they’re the reason for this new found passion.
I’d really love to get more Kenners to restore. It’s so satisfying when they go from looking ill and tarnished to looking fresh and glowing. Holding out hope for the $2 garage sale find but isn’t everyone?
