The unpunched, psychedelic-colored mini-to-maxi length fashions are so reminiscent of 1970s attire. As I flipped through the pages of my new find, the knee-length vest worn over a turtleneck sweater with bell-bottom pants, knee-high lace-up boots, poncho; and oversized, round, rose-tinted shades or "nodders" (as we used to call them) enhanced my visual trip back down memory lane.
It feels good to remove a long sought-after item from my wish list and to have paid a few dollars less than the maximum I was willing to pay.
This paper doll book complements my collection of three-dimensional Crissy family dolls. Most can be seen and read about here.
Confession: I left this blog in draft mode with intentions to publish later. This paragraph and the text that follows is an edit to the original draft. After photographing the paper doll book, entering the information about its purchase on my Excel spreadsheet, and finally placing the book in the file cabinet where my other paper doll books are stored, I saw the edge of a paper doll book that looks identical to this one! Guess what? I already had the Crissy and Velvet Paper Dolls book! The first one was purchased in August, only two months ago! I reopened my Excel spread sheet, filtered the columns, and found the entry for the original book, which is almost identical to what I wrote about the second one:

Obviously after receiving the first book, I did not flip through its colorful pages. I did not take a trip back down memory lane. I must have only documented the purchase and stored it. This duplicate purchase is irrefutable proof that I need to slow my buying roll/role and that my long-term memory is better than my short-term memory.
Has this ever happened to you... I mean, have you ever unintentionally duplicated a doll purchase?
