This is our last doll of the year, and the very last Doll-A-Day for a while at least! I suppose I should have been prepared with an extra special doll,but with Christmas,my back trouble,my friend's heart troubles, and some of my own,plus everything else that's been going on, I didn't even think of that! I hope nobody is disappointed!
She should have been yesterday's doll,and part of the Shrunken Saturday posts. She's just going to have to be a Shrunken Sunday instead.
She's a Littlest Pet Shop Blythe.
She's a fitting one for me to have because she's 'Fabulously Vintage',and so
are most things I like.
She's dressed for a party,so I guess it's a New year's Party
She's only 4" tall.
Blythe originally appeared in the 60's, as much larger dolls,(They can wear Skipper sized clothes.)
While this little girl has plain inset eyes, the original Blythe dolls had large eyes that could change colour by spinning to a different eye side with the pull of a string located on their backs.
Those Blythes are super collectible (and expensive!) these days,as are the more recent remakes. I'll stick with this girl!
As with the full size Blythe dolls, this kid has one big head!
It makes her top heavy. She couldn't stand on those tiny little feet with that head, even if she had her missing shoes!
Once again I'm using my really cool "Matrix" staircase. I love this thing!
I originally intended this post for the day Ken and I went to Tiffin for Ken to see his all time favourite, Olivia Newton John,in concert.(We only got one ticket because A: I wanted him to have the best seat possible,which meant that, at almost $100,we couldn't get two like that! and B: She has never been my thing at all, so it would have been wasted on me anyway, and he might as well get the most out of it.) As it happened, we went into a collectibles shop, and they had this very doll,in her box no less.
So, this marks the end of this year's Doll-A-Day. I'll still be around, and plan to do a Doll-of-the-Week. You just won't
see me every day...unless I decide to do this again sometime!
