Just Playing...

I decided to take a little time to play with my dolls today.  I had been neglecting them lately, but recently my son helped me work on my "outdoor" shelf by putting up new sky wallpaper. 

I know it's winter, but I set up a a summer scene because last summer my friend Sherelyn surprised me with the ice cream bike and my "outdoor" shelf wasn't ready to be photographed.  I had been watching this bike at Walmart and Target for months waiting for it to be reduced.  Well, somehow I missed it and one day they were gone from the shelves.  I was so disappointed.  Then one day Sherelyn showed up with the bike!  I was going through a very stressful time and she knew it and decided to cheer me up.  It worked!  Thanks Sherelyn!  Here's Little JJ (my interpretation of Texan player JJ Watt as a child) buying ice cream at the park.   (Click on the pictures to enlarge.)
A lot of the kids turned out for a day at the park.  This little Madame Alexander doll was a gift from Carolyn this past Christmas.  I dressed her in a vintage Ginny Doll dress that matched her hair bows.  Thanks Carolyn!  Carolyn has a website with lots and lots of her Vogue Ginny Dolls and their friends called Carolyn's Rock and Roll Ginny Dolls.  Be sure to visit.
As you can see, it was a busy day at the park.  This is a combination of vintage Vogue Ginny Dolls, vintage reproduction Vogue Ginny Dolls, Madame Alexander Dolls, vintage Nancy Ann Muffy doll, and a vintage Uneeda Bob doll.
Little JJ has been looking forward to Saturday's play off game.  I hope he won't be disappointed.
Little JJ just sits on a shelf right now, but I'm planning to give him his own room soon.  When my sister moved this past summer she uncovered the Ginny Doll bed we had as kids.  Her girls had played with it too, but they colored it with crayons, so I decided that I'd paint it in the Houston Texans colors for Little JJ.  Setting up his room is on my "to do list" for 2016.



  1. Betty, so good to see you and the "kids" playing! Happy New Year!!...:)JP

  2. I agree with JP - it is good to see you playing. Nice friend to get you that bike. What a nice surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And your doll in the second picture is beautiful. I am trying to picture in my mind the size of that scene in it's entirety - how big is all that. Looks like they had fun.

  3. The ice cream bicycle is delightful! I love that you create scenes with your dolls. I do that with my Jane Austen, Action Doll. She figured in the last round of an ABC meme. She still hasn't decided whether to do another round and it starts tomorrow. :-)
