3/52 (6/52) - The Gangs All Here

Well sort of... I'm actually missing 3 LPS girls but they haven't been deboxed yet so they couldn't join the 52wpb and 52 weeks of Blythe photo.

Alyssa Marie & Alexa Grace

Sisterly Love
So I purchased a TLC PM Josephina AG for a spectacular deal. But the reason why the deal was so good is because my Josephina needs lots of love. Like the previous owner wanted to use her as a boy doll, so she chopped all of her hair really short. I mean REALLY short and cut her earring off one ear and left the other one. The limbs are considerably loose which making her stand by herself a little more work than usual but she does stand.

Alyssa Marie & Alexa Grace
Also there are shiny spots on her face and limbs. I still love her though. I decided to get her a new head because of the earring and the awful haircut. I did find one relatively inexpensive ($21 shipping inlcuded) which is cheaper than one from the AG Hospital just waiting for it to arrive. It should be here by Tuesday... hopefully. :-)

Frankie & Mittens

Couldn't resist taking a photo of Mittens & Frankie. My daughters threw her away because her arm was "broken"... So they thought. LOL

6/52- Mini Lalaloopsy Dolls Redux

My Mini Lalaloopsy Dolls

These little girls joined my family awhile back but I totally forgot to share. I am actually missing one thanks to my 5yo. Gotta love her. :-)

I will say these are just as addictive as any other collectible item. LOL I'm trying to really curb the buying impulses but sometimes temptation wins out. :-)

****UPDATE**** MIA Mini Lalaloopsy found. Yay! She is Peanut's New Tricks. :-)

My Expensive Addiction

Let me just say that doll collecting is a VERY expensive addiction. I've been known to say there are worse things that one could be addicted but doll collecting is almost as bad. LOL

My collection has grown by leaps and bounds. I started off with 1 Neo Blythe PD2A in 2008, added 1 Little Pullip Cheshire Cat and Neo Noir Pullip (rehomed in 2011) in 2010.

Here we are in 2012 and I'm up to 5 Neo Blythes, 1 Petite Blythe, 10 LPS Blythes which 3 are duplicates to customize (with 1 on the way supposedly... doubt it'll come because I had to request a paypal dispute due to an unresponsive eBay seller), 1 Nahh-Ato Pullip (with 2 on the way), 2 Little Pullips, 2 American Girl Dolls (with 1 on the way), 1 Kelly Doll (loved her makeup & had to have her) and 1 Gloom Beach Frankie Stein Monster High Doll!

Oh did I mention that I'm starting to get into My Little Ponies, thanks to McD's! I have AppleJack & I also got a blind bag wave 1 Minty. Now I want to get the rest of the McD's ponies to have the complete collection. I also want to get the g3.5 ponies. I think Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and Sweetie Belle are too adorable.

Also the Littlest Pet Shop (a.k.a. LPS) animals are too adorable and the just happen to be adding to my collection because they come with my LPS Blythe but now I find myself looking throight the toy sections for not only the the LPS Blythes but MLPs and LPS too. Am I done adding dolls, ponies and LPS to my collection, not EVEN close! I think my want list of dolls, LPS and ponies is longer than my list of dolls in my current collection.

See... Addicting!

Aubrey (LPS Blythe, Get Pretty Boutique) and LPS Buttons N Bows (My daughter's LPS Blythe, not sure if she named her) were out in and about shopping in Beverly Hills when the paparazzi caught a photo of them. :-)

Meet Alexa Grace

My AGT #15 is loving her new home here with the other girls. She has even found herself some beautiful new hairs. Thanks ZoĆ« for your generosity. 

As you can see AGT #15 has also chosen a name for herself and her personality/story. LOL I think the hair took a HUGE part in picking her name. There were a couple of names that were bouncing around but once she put hair on, I knew her name would be Alexa Grace born June 20th, 2000, who's favorite color is aquamarine and personality is outgoing & very playful.

There will also be one more PM American Girl joining her but she won't be here for a couple of weeks though. Remember dolly diet. LOL

Lastly, Alexa decided that she would like a blog for her and the other 18" girls but I told her that she could have her own now since the other girls may not want a blog and don't want to stifle her creativity or self expression. So the new blog is called Amazing AG Girls but there isn't anything there yet because she is working on it. LOL

Dolly Diet...

Well sorta. I've gone on a wee bit of a binge in the last couple of weeks purchasing new dollies that I kinda put myself on a dolly diet of sorts. No I can't promise that I'll stop buying dollies all together because that's just preposterous. I mean I will purchase my big girls with a little more discretion AFTER these two dollies,

Romantic Alice:FA

 Romantic Alice (photo taken by Requiemart)
(not sure which one she is since she will arrive nude w/o box) 

LE Another Alice Pullip (complete w/ stock) 
(photo taken by PullipStyle... awesome seller from my own personal experience)

that I currently have on layaway though.... I know, I know. I said I wasn't going to purchase any Pullips unless it was

  Prunella (photo taken by PullipStyle... 
awesome seller from my own personal experience)


Nomi (a.k.a. Nahh-Ato)
 Nomi (purchased from PullipStyle) 

is living proof that I can not and will not discriminate against them. LOL I mean who am I kidding... they are gorgeous and poseable to boot. I'm still on the hunt for Prunella and hopefully I will be able to find her since she is also a sold out doll. I guess you could say that Prunella is my grail Pullip doll. LOL Oh to dream!!

Okay, I know I said that I didn't find Pullips attractive but I think I was fooling myself because there is a new lady amongst our mists. Yep, you guessed...
