My love of anything having to do with dolls and dollhouses started long before I became a serious doll collector. As children, dolls are our playmates, our best friends, and (in the dark of the night) sometimes our protectors. This web page is a place for me to share with other doll lovers of all ages, the dolls I have spent my whole life collecting.

The Newest Edition

This is Tamsin my newest doll. I've looked for a doll with darker skin for a very long time. After stumbling onto this one I had to own her. I sewed the outfit myself since she didn't come with one. If you knew anything about me and my hate of sewing you would realize how amazing this is. Collecting dolls has forced me to learn new skills I never would have taken up otherwise.

One of My More Unusual Dolls

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a centaur doll until I found this one for sale on the internet. Isn't he gorgeous? This was the first time I bought a doll that I had to paint the face and body myself from scratch. I was so nervous he wouldn't turn out because he had white skin instead of flesh colored. The features have to be subtle but not too pale. It was tricky but he came out beautifully in the end. Don't you think?
