Leave My Dolls Alone!


Glam 'N Groove Christie

(Leave my dolls alone!) That's what I want to say when he discovers I finally realized Glam 'n Groom Christie was moved to the doll room minus her pet poodle.  I just made this discovery. When I saw her alone in the doll room, I rushed to the living room to retrieve her dog, which had been overlooked by the "mover."

Christie was purchased after entering the market in 2001 (box date is 2000, so she probably wasn't available until the following year).  I thought a dog with authentic-looking hair was a novel feature.  (I didn't know how gnarled and tangled the hair actually was.)

Christie and her pet had been in the living room on the display shelf underneath an end table along with a couple of other tiny dolls.  There are very few dolls in there as most are confined to the doll room and a bedroom.

This afternoon I noticed Christie in the doll room and I know who brought her in here.  He's moved a couple of larger dolls from the living room into the doll room in the past.  I think his goal is to get them all relocated into the doll room.
 
I photographed Christie and her dog for this post and left her set up in the "studio" where he will see her when he returns.  He'll then know that I know what he did.  I'll give him a look or two when he reveals his guilt by saying something like, "So you finally noticed, huh?"  That look that I'll give, which will cut like a knife, will prevent my having to say,  "Leave my dolls alone!"

But then again, he may think she's just another doll that I have photographed or am planning to photograph.   We shall see.  In the meantime, I'll practice the "leave my dolls alone!" look.

  2. The man knows that touching my dolls is a giant NO NO. He tried to "help" me before and dolls got marred in the experience. There was some repurchasing of a doll or 2.

    Yeah so no touching ever unless instructed and under my watchful eye LOL

    1. Dollz4Moi,

      My motto "look but don't touch!"

      We have to teach them in one way or another that our dolls are off limits.

    1. Dolls are almost like our babies, GG. We'd know immediately if a real child were missing, but it may take a little longer to discover a misplaced doll. Oh, but we will eventually notice.

  5. Yes we are unbelievable when it comes to our dolls. I know I am... I am extremely protective of them, Jorge.

    But on a brighter note, it's a good thing he moved her (which he denied... he said I moved her and forgot... so untrue). His moving her allowed me to "remember" that I owned her. I am rarely in the living room and she was never noticed where I had her originally. After "I returned her to the living room" (yes, indeed, I certainly did), I placed her on top of the end table along with her pet poodle in clear view. She will not be forgotten now.

  6. Lol ... guess somebody will think twice about moving dolls. I love the "you moved her and forgot about it" defense. Like you'd forget about that, lol.

  8. Lol, I love your writing and the doll is lovely. I like dolls that look like girls with attitude lol.

    I'm typically a Victorian doll collector but looking at 16" fashion dolls too because they're no longer being made. Who knows I might get an AA doll for a change this time.

    Always felt dark is beautiful in life (but unfortunately I keep becoming fair again despite significant tanning attempts) :)

  9. Hi Carmen,

    Thanks for stopping by and giving me a chuckle:
    "Always felt dark is beautiful in life (but unfortunately I keep becoming fair again despite significant tanning attempts) :)" Too funny!

    Have you seen the 16-inch fashion dolls by Robert Tonner? His dolls are the best in this size and category, in my opinion.

  10. LOL, and this is why I'm glad I live alone. I don't have to worry about my dolls being usurped and then someone getting cut. When my family comes over they know, "No Touching!!!"

  11. Lol I keep my dolls in the office.

    Normally it is a dangerous prospect if there's office warfare going on but in this part of the world no one appears to want to collect dolls above Barbie size (and most think dolls are for kids).

    This means a large and realistic looking doll has a very interesting psychological impact on my workplace.

    Everyone gives her a wide and respectful distance and politely avert their gaze like the doll were a real Victorian lady. LOL.

    They also probably know that I will hunt them down and kill them if anything happened to 'my mistress'. Lmao.

  12. Hi Carmen,

    Dolls are indeed wonderful decor in any room and certainly must enhance your office atmosphere. Your dolls are obviously commanding well-deserved respect there, too.

    Their models are really awesome!

  15. You must really give some value on the accessories, just like how you give value to the doll itself. It’s the accessories that make your doll more interesting. It’s like Christie will not be complete if her dog is not with her. ;) You can express your creativity when it comes to it. My wife and my daughter really enjoy dressing up dolls and adding some accessories to their outfit. I believe it’s one of their favorite activities to do. They even make online purchase for these accessories. They love visiting the site http://www.doll-clothes.com/ because it has a variety of doll accessories ranging from bags, hats, shades, and even a bed and pillows. :D

  16. Wow, someone said pillows. Oh my. Pillows FTW! I have like a dozen decorative pillows for myself and the dolls have a set of Victorian pillows of their own too :)

    I was talking about the Robert Tonner fashion dolls with the ladies at www.dollchatter.com and I was also recommended to take a look at CED Dolls.

    They make quite a few of African American models and look very realistic. Better yet the customer service on their website is top notch and they volunteered to help me shave off a big portion of my shipping costs by repackaging my doll and outfits into the same box. That's pretty awesome considering I told them my order was for Spring 2013 to be delivered to Singapore lol!

    For anyone interested in pics of the CED Dolls (Yes there are AA dolls in there :) here's post #7 of the discussion thread on dollchatter.com

  17. CED dolls are nice 16-inch dolls. I own Colin Dehan with the cropped blonde hairstyle. I did own a few boxed fashions but sold those last year. The line was discontinued a few years back.

    I have done business with CherishedFriends.com in the past and also enjoyed their excellent customer service. Thanks for sharing your experience with them.
