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 of 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

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

My lovely crocheted doll!

 

The initiator of the professional holiday was made by the Iranian theater worker Divad Zolfagariho. In 2000, the XVIII Congress of the International Union of figures of the theatre of dolls has considered this proposal. But the question of the place and time of the celebration remained unresolved. At the meeting of the UNIMA international Council in 2003, the participants agreed on the date of the event. The festival has received wide support and spreading around the world.IMG_2873

The first mention of the puppet theater was depicted in Ancient Egypt. During the holidays, women went from one settlement to another with songs. In the hands, they wore special figurines of the thread by which the last move. Such dolls are still made in Latin America and Syria.

Thanks to archaeologists and their work, we can learn how the celebrations were held in the 16th century BC. The puppeteer was not only in Egypt but also in Greece and Ancient Rome. Someone came up with splitting the box in half to symbolize peace. With such products, puppeteers went to Europe and showed their performances.

Later boxes were added to the scenery, it helped to mark the location of the depicted actions. However, admired not only decoration and elegance introducing the dolls. At all times, the work of a man who forced his wards to “revive” in his skillful hands was appreciated.к5

There is a traditional puppet theater in every corner of the world and, like hundreds of years ago continues to amuse and surprise its audience.

Today I received in the mail my new dolls. It seems I’m becoming a collector))) About them, I will tell you in one of the next posts. All the more that news I have there are very many!!IMG_5413

Heidi Ott dolls family

Doll collections are not always made quickly. They are replenished slowly, and often consciously. The beginning of this collection was launched a few months ago when I bought a Toddler doll. When I got used to it and loved it, I thought I’d be able to create clothes for the little doll from the collection of dolls for the Dollhouse. So I got the baby from Heidi Ott.

As I wrote, these dolls strike a very delicate and attention to detail of the body and especially the face. It seems that the faces as living and never cease to wonder at this amazing drawing of faces.

So the other day my house finally came with the following doll from a large collection of dolls Heidi. This is the Doll Lady. Her height is 5.5 inches. She^s body is not a puppet in the usual our understanding of the meaning. It’s really the female body in a very reduced size. Quite harmonious and proportionate. Now my small family to gather.

So I was finally able to implement my old idea to make a small collection of knitted dresses in one style and in one color. For the first collection, I chose the color pink. He is the best to dolls. Gives soft and mood puppet happiness.heidi ott dolls

According to the Eastern calendar, the year 2018 will be the year of the earth Dog. The dog is by nature honest and friendly beast, but acting according to their own principles. That animal always comes to the aid of kind and gentle host and always ready to bite the enemy.9374540-tjtke

2018 – how to celebrate For those who pay attention to horoscopes, is of great significance, how to celebrate the year 2018. Preference should be given to modest classic costume in color scheme close to the symbolism of this cycle. Perfect:
shades of yellow and brown: Orange, Grenadine Red, Pale pink, Neutral Gray, Navy Peony, Golden Lime, Marina ….. see this picture.modnye-cveta-osen-zima-2017-2018-goda-ot-panton-2-1

In the year of Yellow earth, Dog should be avoided too revealing, short and open dresses that expose the shoulders and back. Need to dress modestly and with restraint, but the outfit should be of good quality.

If you believe the Chinese (Eastern) calendar, 2018 (earth Dog) the year is more than fair for the person because his totem will be a Dog. The year of what animal may be friendlier to us? It is the dog began many centuries ago best our helper in the hunt, in the protection of our homes and in many other aspects of life.

Pattern for Julia

Now I am asked to write a pattern for knitting dresses. I’m sure is written it. And I’ve already started working on it. I must admit that I find it difficult to do yourself. Definitions and abbreviations for the description of works in Russian and English languages differ from each other. And method of knitting, as I recently learned, is also different. But that does not mean to associate knitting my dress will be difficult. I will try to write easier and make more photos, so you will understand the process of its creation. But let’s focus on some of the complexities of this process.

1 Tools for the job.
I work very thin needles for knitting. Their size of 1 mm. In the American system, they have the number 0000.D9987-3 (1)
2 Yarn.
As you know from my previous posts, I also choose a very thin yarn. For example, yarn Nirvana has such data in 25 g (0,88 oz) of 340 meters (372 yds)
In this work, it is very important patience and attentiveness.

But I tried to make the pattern is not very complicated dresses. It turned out to be quite interesting and exciting for me. The dress I chose that.title 1

I like dresses for dolls, which you can then add different accessories or create a similar dress a second time, slightly change the pattern of knitting. Like this white knitting dress. It is patterned, but a little-added ornament on the front.2194

If you are interested in this dress, you can see it in my store on Etsy.

My stories

Thinking out loud No. 1

Creative ideas fly directly in the air. It is only to lend a hand and to have time to catch the elusive thought, the time to bring it to life.

Not worth it for a very long time “to bear” the thought, wait for it to finally “ripen” in the head in the form of the desired option. It is often such a long wait does not implement the idea. The idea transformed and in the end lose their colors and original appeal.

Many may not agree with me and perhaps this approach is peculiar to me, but I think there is still the same as I do. I’m trying to implement your ideas immediately in hot pursuit. Once in my head, there was even a tiny bit of the idea, I immediately start trying to implement it. And believe me, she immediately begins to grow into the nuances, details and new colors. And it happens that she transformed beyond recognition and it becomes quite a new idea. And you have this happen?

Why am I still writing?!
Imagine that you have several kinds of creativity. How often do you visit the thought- ” why not combine my skills, not whether it will give me a new and not less interesting. Perhaps or even definitely they can complement each other.

And so it happened that little blue dress. The beads on it are not sewn and tied into the fabric.IMG_3056

My doll accidentally fell into the sugar bowl)))) and here in the photo. As always in thought)))IMG_3073

Project for Julia

Continue to test the yarn Nirvana. For a new project, I chose shades of green and light beige color. The dress was conceived as an outfit for Julia to autumn period, with long sleeves and floral patterns. For flowers, I chose a dark shade of dusty rose. For the petals of pale green edging and part of the ornament of the marsh shade. I came up with to complement the dress a small headband with flowers and decorate them the hair of my doll.creativhook AG mini
