In June, my favorite berry is Strawberry) It is sweet and the most beautiful, with white dots and bright green leaves. And what her flavor)))))!!! It is impossible to pass by and not to buy a basket of fresh and ripe berries!012

The mood becomes amazing and for a long time in the air is kept sweet aroma. Oh))) while I wrote, already salivating flowed))) what am I)?

At the very beginning of June, along with the aroma of strawberries, a Strawberry doll came to me. My dear Lisa sent it to me from Canada. So I don’t torment her with requests for size.)))icm_fullxfull.149946340_1e5ojzgltokksg4gw40s

To this day, I saw this doll just for the photos from Lisa and the pictures on the Internet.

When I opened the package, I looked funny eyes and a sly smile. “Hello,” she said. I Berry strawberry. I saw your dresses and I want to live in your workshop.” Hi: – I replied. Will you make me beautiful dresses? she asked. Of course my good doll, I answered with excitement.strawberry-shortcake-dolls-1980s

To get acquainted with the strawberry, I read some stories about creating this doll series, and I really liked them. In Russia, it is still not familiar. I’m sure she can find her fans. I will show you a photo and give only the most interesting facts about the creation of these wonderful dolls.Large-Lot-of-Vintage-Strawberry-Shortcake-Dolls-Pets

Charlotte-strawberry-licensed character, the rights to which the company has American Greetings Corporation. The history of Strawberry Shortcake began in 1977. in Cleveland, when” the girl-cake ” came up with the Illustrator of greeting cards Muriel Farion.

It was a little girl with freckles, dressed in a dress with the image of strawberries and strawberries. These cards for girls have become so popular that they decided to sell dolls strawberries. And later it was filmed animated film, the main characters of which were the doll strawberry and her friends.

The old dolls Kenner, dated 1979. have hard hair, thin and protruding in all directions.  Each outfit is complemented by a must-have accessory — a hat)))     Each heroine Strawberry Shortcake has its own occupation in the city of berries.  Charlotte strawberry works in a coffee shop. Malinka is a fashion designer. Blueberry’s a librarian. Cream teaches dance. Lemon the Barber. Orange is working in a flower shop. strawberryshortcake58

Sun, Sea, Vacation and Announcement!

Hurray! I’m going on vacation tomorrow. And before I leave, I want to make a small announcement of what awaits you after my brief trip to the sea and the sun.58488ec0b474edc80c0f0

Quite unexpectedly for me, Petit Blythe was a very popular doll among my regular and new customers. So I’ve already made some new dresses and sets.IMG_5051

I bought another Petit Blythe. The new doll is a little darker than her girlfriend. Her eyes don’t close.

This doll from the company Hasbro. It differs in a few more details. The head is movable and I really like it, but the Legs, unfortunately, do not bend, and it’s a little sad(pd5073

Like last time, I replaced the wig. The new image seems more beautiful to me.5139bs5076IMG_5055

And most important! I was thinking, what are the names of the dolls my clients have? I never asked them, but now I’m interested.

And while I’m collecting doll names, I’m supposed to be getting ready. Let’s start with the letter A. How many names in the world start with this letter? A great many! And if your doll has a name starting with the letter A……you can order a personal sweater or dress.
My model for this collection is a doll from Heidi Ott lady. Create clothes for her I really like.alice5161

Dolls, which I “saved” on Ebay)))

 

Good day my dear readers. I am very grateful to all for the comments and kind words to my little stories. Today’s story is about “rescued” dolls. It’s humor, of course, but I really liked the comment of one of my clients. After a long day at work, which sometimes ends at almost midnight or later, I love to browse through lots of doll sales on eBay.

Often these night vigils end with shopping. Sometimes I even win auctions, if one or another lot I really want to have. And the most important thing is that very rarely happen frustration after shopping. I ‘ll show you my latest purchases. Perhaps will be a little more photos than usual. I’ll start in order. First, from the UK came here a couple of small plastic dolls Edi. They arrived, as it was prescribed in perfect condition.IMG_5445

The kids are very cute and resemble a family of Danish villagers.
After them, came here is a “pearl” in my collection. The pupa is porcelain, with an amazing face and a blue bow. Unfortunately, her legs are connected, but the comforting that her handles are moving and give me the opportunity later to dress it.IMG_5453IMG_5455

While writing this post, it seems that they all arrived one after another))) But of course the spaces between their arrival gave me time to wonder and enjoy their beauty and magic.
Farther! A whole family’s here. and all these pupae were also in good condition and marked Shildkrot. I believe that many people are very familiar with this brand of German plastic dolls. Here’s a quick photo on arrival.IMG_5423

Then already I partition and washed them. Cleaned off the dirt and landed on the couch for a photoshoot) two of them are 10 centimeters in size and one 8.5 centimeters in size. He later received a gorgeous sailor suit. As many of you know, the nautical theme in doll clothes is my favorite theme. And many dolls of my collection have marine outfits.4973

The doll height 10cm ( 4 inches) already got a nice outfit. Hat, pants, and jacket.49814983

Before I could get enough of these kids, immediately came a stunning boy from Celba. For those who have such a baby, it will not be a revelation of its high quality and pretty face.49784980

All of them have not yet got a full wardrobe for a fashion show. But there is a holiday, and I hope that the outfits will be created. Maybe one of my clients will come up with interesting clothes.
And at the end of my story, there’s something funny and interesting. Past this of a couple of I could not pass. The faces and the size of these babies touched me in the heart.

The authors are unknown to me,  and the seller also has no idea who created this miracle. But it is important that they are and they are adorable.4996

Kids are made of porcelain. They’re very small, only 2 inches tall.49854991

No, it seems not all))) I took the photo decided to take a photo of my wall of honor. It is not complete and the exposition should be changed.  I am, like you (I hope so), love to look at shelves with dolls. Welcome to a small part of my workshop.494849504954
