I still love dolls

Parker came across my book about Blythe Dolls today and loved it. This book was given to me by a friend several years back when I told her how intriguing a found these little dolls. What I find especially interesting about them is how they are collected world wide, mostly by adults, which I don't find creepy like I would if you told me you collect the Marie Osmond Dolls. Owners of Blythe dolls don't just dress them, they are styled. They are unique and individualized in a way that you could never do with Barbie....even her name (Blythe) evokes a hipster quality, if you will. I am tickled that Parker took an interest...maybe it is time for me to get my own Blythe doll.
