And they don't play much with the other dolls in Dolltown.
The Daycare bunch has arrived at Terri's End-of-Summer Shindig!
Dee an Cee beauties Cindy and Darlene look after all the Dolltown babies and toddlers.
(Although you won't see the New Zealand babies, or Xennia's baby here today.
They are playing with the Little Darlings.)
And welcome to Darlene and Cindy, Magic Barbie and Silent Sam!
Vikka brings the Babies in our flower cart...
Magic Barbie and Asa have a close relationship. MB is like a pretty drone, hovering over Dolltown and letting Asa know what is going on.
The Disney Princesses are asking Asa for missions. They are used to being heroines and saving the day. Dolltown day to day is fun. But isn't there a village or a prince to rescue somewhere? Asa ponders...
No doll expert around here has been able to identify this wonderful dolly from Value Village. She was bought in a bag full of other unnamed dolls (including our Clawdeen). Someday someone will recognize her and tell us who she is. She has no idea herself. We think she might have lost her memory. Maybe PTSD!
Vintage Kimberley and Crissy are happy that Kidz n Cats Hal joined the Dolltown Community. Nice AND cute. And useful, and strong....
Our vintage Becky is so excited to bring her friend, a brand new to Dolltown old doll. It's the first time in her LIFE that she feels she has a special friend just like her!
And he's so cute!
Oh boy! What a Dolltown crew! There's Boneka, hanging on to Asa, and OOAK Sky who looks like a cloud, and Silent Sam who communicates through his mind, and Valentine, our new doll stylist, and very new Bunny, who came for Easter fun and never left...
They all have a great talk!
Vintage Originals Cindy and Darlene, with their gorgeous Ava wigs making them feel as young and beautiful as Asa.
Jade J'Adore, Catrine Demew, and one of the Clawdeens (we think) get to live at Dolltown Abbey, so they see Asa regularly. They have put themselves in charge of the pets and plants... Trading for protection!
And Sophie! Our Dolltown muse...an OOAK from Lithuania. She arrived in Dolltown in her own frame and only once has come down from it.
Sophia, still in her frame, came to acknowledge Asa's unprecedented Open House.
Asa felt honored!
And Sophie was Asa's last visitor.
This green dress from Kathy at tkctcrafts has been in use a lot at Dolltown!
Tink wore it when she arrived, then passed it on to Chantal when she came... Beautiful with green and brown eyes!
Check out our book!
If you like it we'd love a review! Thanks!
It's even in our Alphabet book on Amazon!
Even our Barbie, Liz, wears a green dress in the book!
Okay, something is up with my photo posting the last couple of days. The photos are sideways.
So I "fix" them which means that they look sideways to ME. Hopefully not to you...
Here are all four dollies hanging onto the dashboard on the drive through the mountains!
Well, Matt heard that Aunt Jacalyn was taking along a brand new out-of-the-box Barbie on her trip to Salt Spring Island. And new Barbie has two dogs. Matt loves dogs. So he snuck into Ana
and Tink's dolly bag....
By the time Auntie Jackie discovered the stowaway it was too late. They were on the road. (From the bag, Tink's little voice...Auntie Jackie, can we come out now? Please? There might be a moose beside the road!) So, Matt got to come out of the bag not long after their departure.
And sure enough, there was a pretty blonde to keep company. And dogs to play with. Matt got to enjoy the drive through the mountains, the ferry ride, walks along the beach. And a memorable campfire evening after Ana and Tink had gone to bed.
These photos below are very dark!
Matt and Barbie seemed to be moving
farther away from the light.
"Where are you two?" Aunt Jacalyn had to call.
My vintage Barbie...
I only had one.
BUT she was loved, and played with a lot.
My vintage Barbie's new friends...

One imagines that an original thought, that creates a good vibration, spreads.
Thank you to family, friends, and associates for the inspiration,
