Travel, dolls and plans!

I just came from the post office. Before of a small vacation, all the orders are sent, and now I can relax a little.
What to do in these few days before the flight?

Start collecting things in a suitcase? Too early))) a Little quiz about where I was going. This is one of the provinces of the large European countries. 1500383704_545882_27
She is known around the world for various attractions, holidays, and symbols. On holidays there playing the accordion and drink beer. In the vicinity of the capital of this region’s many castles.Neuschwanstein People seem open and friendly. I recognize this very soon and will definitely tell you on my blog!

To sum up the year and my blog? Too early.
Lately, my side has been a clear failure in writing new posts. But it is understandable. New doll chained my attention. As often happens, each new resident in my dollhouse too much I work on it. My new model is this Lady. 600She comes from a family of dolls from Heidi Ott. I already told you about them. So…this is quite a complex model. With a small increase only 5.5 inches, it has the proportions of the female body. And not a hike to my baby dolls.
She has a very Tokaj waist. Just like Dita von Tiss)))25166_DitaVonTeese_0 And this causes some complications in calculating and knitting. But I don’t know how to be depressed and not looking for easy ways)) So the basic closet turned out fabulous!344437303613ys3691ho6

A few days before you travel, to try new ideas and think about the new collection) and of course on those lovely kids who are waiting for me on my journey. They already bought one of them long-awaited doll from CACO!!! HURRAY!!IMG_4359

By the way. In the vicinity of this city where I’m going, there are lots of Flea markets. I’m looking forward to the occasion and happiness from the expectations of new discoveries and new dolls!!!

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon!depositphotos_29487085-stock-illustration-oktoberfest-design

Welcome to the world of “Caco” from Fritz Canzler

Many people always wonder why others collect collections, especially when these collections seem strange to them. Doll collection more often than others can raise questions and concern for others. Are the collectors hesitate when you have to explain it’s a hobby.   Collecting dolls is not uncommon, and even has its own term — Plangonologia. ( I didn’t even know about it before)!IMG_0376

Professional collection less need of explanation than the Amateur that does not consist of antique, vintage, or unique art dolls, and doll games. But “lovers” are no less positive emotions from your Hobbies.

From the point of view of psychology, collectors dolls are no different from other collectors, for example, stamps, coins, or cars. Psychology does not give an accurate explanation of people’s desire to spend huge amounts of time, money and energy to maintain its collections, but has a few assumptions:

 

* Happy moments from the past
* Filling inner emotional emptiness
* The pursuit of thrills
* A sense of control over the situation
* Unconscious desire to replenish their collections.

I don’t want to get lost in a psychological maze so I will not discuss these reasons. I will touch on only some.  The first idea or the reason for the gathering of dolls I like. Therefore, I will consider it the most important!

So. As I wrote clever words, and what…..? And the fact that a week ago, my friend Anna ( about her I already wrote, remember how we played with dolls?) showed me a miniature boy doll. Thin and incredibly lifelike face, this doll put me in awe.$_57

And..I, as a real collector now), I decided that I want this miniature doll in my collection!!!    And of course, I started to look for information. Look what I found.

In the early 1900-is in Germany (the first mention occurs in 1906) Herr Canzler started the company in the export of toys, dolls, doll clothes and accessories. In consequence, the numerous overlays that are related to suppliers, after the I-St World war, together with Herr Hoffmann, he still decided to launch their own line of dolls. Date of Foundation of the company Canzler & Hoffmann 1924, the headquarters of the Sonnenberg.
In 1925 registered the logo of the company, which has manufactured products until the early 50-is.image caco

You are absolutely right. I’m talking about the very well-known firm of dollhouses ” Caco”.

In 1927 the first doll saw the light.46447f97d685

It was a small doll for doll houses, through the frame was plastic, can make different poses. Hands and feet were made of lead, head of plastics (composites and papier mache)
Later, in the early 30’s, dolls were made of celluloid, for the effect of the skin. After the ban of lead and celluloid, the production switched to plastic. The heads were also plastic. But it was too late.

There is mention that the firm was represented at the Leipzig fair in 1939.e56e2f8079bb

In 1945, the company moved to Neustadt – Coburg (American occupied zone), a certificate of registration is in 1948. From 1951-1953, the company changed its name and logo, now it’s called CaCo – CanzlerCoburg.a0eeb733e1e4

Was built its production. Corporate logo was decorated exactly in Coburg.
In the early 70s, the company was sold.
However, the Brand is well known in our time, the company continues to manufacture mobile dolls Biegepuppen, for collectors and special occasions make dolls with porcelain heads are made and various miniatures for doll houses.96273eaee060
The management of the company carries out Frau Berndt-Hausser.
Here’s how to change the technology, visible winding different materials, different materials goals, was replaced by a drawing of the face.0b2fa9826c2c

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

Work and plans.

As long as I was not))) But this time I spent at work. At first, I was setting up my new workspace. Laid out on the shelves and boxes of my treasures. How I accumulated a lot of yarn and other Spotswood materials. And all it had to organize and distribute according to importance and usefulness. Now my Desk is located right by the window and all I need is “at hand”.IMG_3323IMG_3325IMG_3327

At the same time, I got new yarn for new dresses. Some I have tried and was pleased with her. I’ll write more about it later in a separate post. And here is the work of the new yarn.The yarn is thin and very soft. Knit from it a pleasure. Here are some works from this yarn.il_570xN.1285941726_5oykLati white SP outfitil_570xN.1303769042_2c9b

Usually all the build plans in the beginning of the month, I’m now trying to organize my operation. How I want to have another three pairs of hands and a little more time in the day)     Let’s start in order. Last week I went back to working with leather. I thought my dolls needed leather accessories. That’s why I started a small collection of leather skirts.IMG_37283736lilac sweater lati sp

When I was going through my treasures, I came across a workpiece for new brooches. And something me right in the back pushed…Have to finish it!!!!IMG_3775IMG_3778

I now very rarely make jewelry, and I noticed what must happen something very important that I returned to making jewelry. This signal to me was the opinion of one of my clients who bought one of my “Eye-brooch”. Gift liked very much. I really love these brooches, each brooch is eye turns not similar to the previous one. This time I made three brooches in the form of the eye. I hope they will be a wonderful gift for the modern woman, striving for individuality.evil eye

In addition to the brooches in the form of eyes, I make brooches Owls. A symbol of wisdom and longevity. The owl as a totem and as an amulet. About it I already wrote in one of my previous posts. The new Owl was unusual)

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

Crimson fashion show

Today my story will be devoted to the Nirvana from the Italian yarn manufacturer Filatura di Crosa and dresses for dolls. As I wrote before, for my works I use only very high-quality yarn and often produced in Italy. Soft and thin, it fits perfectly for knitting the smallest dolls. The composition of this yarn contains Merino wool, which is considered the best material in the world.Yarn Nirvana has a wonderful feature — it absolutely does not irritate the skin, so is perfect for creating baby things. Also, 77e5942697d1af20b114bd2b9d7e2ebdit is possible to knit products for Allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin. In addition, the yarn is Filatura di Crosa Nirvana has excellent thermostatic properties and elasticity, so stuff from it for many years do not lose their properties and retain an attractive appearance. It is also worth noting that, according to experts, products made from Merino wool have a positive influence on health, realizing a micro-massage the body and thereby improving circulation. Care, too, such things will not cause you trouble. Wash this yarn in warm soapy water, wring out in a towel and then dried in the unfolded form. Full description

Full description
Roll length: 340 m;
Weight: 25 g;
Material: 100% Merino wool;
Needle Size: No. 2,0-2,5; ( but I prefer No. 0.6 – 1.0)
Knitting density: 10×10 cm – 34 loops 38 series  ( In my case, 70 loops 100 series.)

Some fans and collectors of dolls like when their dolls dressed in the same dress. I heard this opinion from my clients. And since dolls are different in size, the dress can be linked with small changes, but stick to a single style. As decoration, you can use miniature embroidery or lace, small decorative items ( I have the items for jewelry making) and crochet flowers. And believe me, your dolls are amazingly beautiful, even if the color of the dresses they match.
So, I chose to create this mini collection Pink color yarn Nirvana. As my models represented: American girl mini Julia Kelly by Mattel and Heidi Ott Toddler. All the attention is on the screen.

Sweater for Julie.

My new doll Julie became for me a source of inspiration. Her sweet face looks at me in hope for new outfits. I wish her outfits were the most beautiful, the more yarn I have a lot of ideas and no less). The White sweater should be in every woman’s closet, and why not to knit a sweater our Julia. White sweater with braids this is a very cute outfit, and I started knitting it. When the sweater was almost finished, I thought….why not combine knitting and embroidery?)2500

To do the embroidery on the thin knitted fabric is not difficult. You can use some of the descriptions. Or just look at pictures. For example here are

As I have been knitting for a long time, I have accumulated a lot of small balls of different yarns. Sometimes so much so that I remember the orders when holding a particular ball.2505

 

Before you start to knit the sleeves, I made another photo. The flowers turned out all different and I did them in different techniques.

And there was a solemn moment, the sweater is ready. I don’t sew very well, so the skirt is a little funny))) I think it has turned out beautifully. What do you think?1862
