Another update

I bought a house! And I hope to get all of my dolls sent out from Australia in the coming months. I miss them and I can't wait to write more about the other girls in my collection. I hope to go on the road at some point and exhibit them - they're just so much fun and such a part of history.  Anyone know of any doll shows in their town?

I'm still here and will answer questions as I can, so feel free to write! - Melanie O.

Another Doll Land update

Well, the past couple of years have been quite an adventure!  I moved back from Australia, thinking that I'd land a job right away, get a nice place to live, and send for all of my dolls. Well - time certainly popped that balloon! It took me eight months to land a contractor's job, and over a year after that to finally get a good permanent full time job. So, the next thing on the list will be to find a house and after that, I can send for my dolls!

I miss having my dolls around me. Each once is so unique and has her own story to tell.  As they all come from many different decades, you can almost trace the changes in fashion and technology. Each doll is a snapshot of a moment in time.

If you're reading this blog, I would love to hear about your favorite dolls. What do you like most about them? And what makes your doll a "favorite?" I'd love to read about some of your doll memories.

In the meantime, I'm going through my doll photos and found a few I still need to share with you! Coming soon...
