  1. Wow, sounds like fun! I wish that I could be there. I love that sueded couple!

    1. I think it will be a fun event, Roxanne.

      I love this sueded couple, too. I moved them from the doll room to a living room end table where I have African fertility dolls and a thumb piano. My husband moved them back to the doll room. Playing "silent" musical chairs or a game of chess with dolls as the chessmen, I moved them back to the end table in the living room. His last move placed them in the dining room. He doesn't like dolls in the LR and this is his way of expressing this displeasure. Understandable, but I thought they blended in nicely with the fertility dolls. We're at a stalemate... as long as he doesn't move them again.

    2. I think that those dolls would look very nice on that end table, Debbie! They are art. I had to LOL at your silent game of chess. Me and my husband have played, but for a different reason. He felt that his Ricord figure was in danger of being opened by me (it was until I got my own). He silently moved Ripcord into his office. I then moved Ripcord back into the play room and placed him back on display with my other boxed dolls. My husband silently moved Ripcord back to the office, I moved him back to the play room and my husband made one final move. He took Ripcord out of the play room and hid him, and I have not seen Ripcord since (it's been over a year now). Checkmate.

    3. Your description of you and your husband's Ripcord moves made me laugh out loud, Roxanne. His final move was brilliant!


  2. Thank you Black Doll Enthusiast for sharing. You are so AWESOME!

    1. You are welcome, Sandy! I will do what I can, when I can to help promote doll shows where the black doll is the feature attraction! Gotta keep the celebration going and their relevance known.
