As much as love all my dolls I have been doing really well on the downsizing and have made a reasonably size chunk in my debt. To date I have sold 44 dolls (45 items in total) so I've been doing really well. I have succumbed a couple of times to some very cheap bargains, which I know I shouldn't have, but again they have been times of more pain that usual, so I must beware not to go on the computer then. These have been things on my 'wish list' though, so nothing not planned for.
I think what I really need to do is a doll inventory though, and really work out which of the remaining ones are here for what purpose, display, play, enjoyment, historical reasons, or 'just because' and give those reasons a good thinking over so that I get to a place I really want to be.
I don't really have many baby dolls, not having been especially fussed about them. I have one Galoob Baby Face 'So Surprised Suzie' who came here earlier in the year. Although not strictly a baby, more a toddler I love her cheeky happy face and had always planned on getting a friend/sister/twin for her at some stage so when the opportunity arose last week and I saw one for a good price, well I found it hard to resist, and failed. Anyway she arrived this morning. She wasn't in quite as good condition as Suzie but is still lovely and with a good flannel bath she has cleaned up nicely. I may also wash her hair at some stage, but at the moment it is fine. So without further ado meet 'So Sweet Sandi' Certainly Suzie seems thrilled to have a sister.
They are both wearing 'borrowed' Sasha dresses as I have been having an ongoing saga with making clothing for Suzie, but now I have the bodice size, hopefully I will be more successful in my next attempt. The dresses are of course too long, but Suzie and Sandi thought they were fun to wear. I was also delighted to see that they fit American Girl shoes. I do like things that fit multiple dolls, always handy, especially with shoes!
I love their bright blue eyes.
Now these two dolls won't be companion dolls as such, but I will have fun playing with and dressing them every now and again, especially when I need some brightness and fun.
So as such I will start my doll inventory with these two.
So Surprised Suzie - Galoob Baby Face - No. 2
