Doll Club Meeting!

Hey Gang!

We had our doll club meeting.  It was informal but it was great fun!
We met in a local recreation center in their small art room.  I setup a
table were we could put our items and we used the side table for
refreshments (coffee and donuts).  We did a show and tell, some trades
and give-a-ways and internet and web news and sites info.

Cindy of Cyndy Bee's was there. Sadly I didn't get a photo of Dana, the dolls
she had for show and tell or any pictures of myself.  I guess I was having
too much fun.  I'll do better next time. 

She is the image of Southern Graciousness!
She had with her a doll case that her husband made for her dolls. Is this
She has felt feet/stoppers on the bottom of the draws and the inside of the case.
Isn't that a nice touch.
The bar for hanging clothes is even a presure rod so that it can be moved.
I love her black and white details on the case.

I decided to show a few of my rebodied dolls, IKEA dollhouse,and
some thrift store finds.

First up are my rebodies dolls Max and Marie.  I showed them here with
their donor body precipitants.   The IKEA house made a nice backdrop
for them.

Next is the house itself.  I first saw it on Vanessa's blog.  I paid
about 8.00 for mine but you can find it online at their site for less
If you read this post anywhere other than

It is a fake!!! Run!!
Here is the outside of the house.

One of the inside rooms.

I went out to a few thrift stores looking to clothing to put on my Max 
and Marie but I didn't see anything for them.  I found plenty of other things.
I found this Vespar for my Momoko doll Martina.  She has been bugging me
about having a ride.  I thought other would like to see it so it came along
for show and tell.

I have a barbie knitting book I thought others would like to take a look at.

 There are some really great patterns inside.
Barbie Skating outfits.
Sweater Coats!  I just love sweater coats.
 Maybe one day I will make some of this stuff.
 Marvin came along for show and tell also.  Since you don't see many
JLS dolls I thought he would be good for show and tell.
 After reading Roxanne's Dolls blog on him, I knew everyone would
want...a better look at him.
I purchase a island from Blinky Dolls Boutique that I also had for show and tell.
The detail on this piece is incredible.  It the best doll related item I
currently own. The plate you see there is just some of the wonderful goodies
that came with my order.

Next is my Pretty Girls doll Lena!

I am so glad that I purchase her.  She my new favorite.
Here she is in the box.  Between the time I opened the box and the meeting
I lost her shoes and she had to wear Jakks shoes to the meeting.  It is good
to know that she can do it.
We tried some Lena clothing on this Mixis doll that Dana had there. 
She can fit it!  Lena wiill need a few more clothing items, so it is good
to know a few scources.
The Gang notice a box that was a gift to me from Cyndee Bee.

They want to know what is in it and are guessing.

You get to see the things I got at the meeting in the next post.

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Sounds like everyone had a great time! I wish I had something like that going on around here.
Can't wait to see your goodies in that box!

Georgia Girl said...

Thanks for the great pics, Ms. Leo! And I had a wonderful time. Great meeting you and D7ana. Looking forward to our next gathering. Again, thanks so much for putting this together.

D7ana said...

Thanks again, Ms. Leo, for hosting this doll meeting.

I had fun, got to see Marvin and Lena in person, was able to compare the Mixis with Lena from the Prettie Girls - oh yeah, and I got to meet Ms. LEO and CYNDY BEE! Yay!

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: the meetings are always fun. It is very nice to share hobby. I also have the same cardboard house. The bike is fabulous. Keep in touch

Brini said...

What fun!!. I love that doll case and I'm so happy you love your twins. I too have been reducing and so far it is going good. That Ikea house is cute too.

Muff said...

I'm totally jealous that you guys got to do this!

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your comments RoxanneRoxanne, Georgia Girl, Cyndy bee, The grandmommy, D7ana, Marta, Brini and Muff!
I highly suggest if you don't have a club, that you start one! When I look at items on the doll page and other sites, I look to see where folks are from. If you post on you blog that you are looking to meet local doll folks, you never know what might happen. I hope to put up info in more places next time to bring more folks out. It was wonderful to see new things, share info and talk about dolls. We won't meet monthly but we will meet again! If you know anyone from the Philadelphia area, send them our way!!!

Looks like you all had a blast! I love doll meet ups. Thanks for sharing with us. Looking forward to seeing more.

Congrats on your new purchases! I love the doll case, especially since it has the ties to hold the doll in place. I have many cases that didn't hold the doll and then when they "fell" out of the box, had messed up hair! What a genius idea.

Vanessa said...

That's wonderful. So happy you guys were able to get together. Loved all your goodies!
