  1. What's new in this club
  2. I’m not a doll collector, but I have an our generation doll for sewing purposes - friend’s daughter, has one so I check sizes and fit on mine before sending clothes for the doll (with matching outfits for the person). My Pinterest is creaking at the seams because I’ve pinned so much stuff for 18” dolls!

    This is Fitch and Ruth, two members of my pirate crew, enjoying a visit to a garden. Fitch is a Dollzone Xi-Aliester, Ruth is a Minifee Scar Shiwoo on an older Souldoll body.

    Alisamer's BJDs

    Just a place to share photos of my BJDs.
  5. My daughters have them, and I live vicariously through them and buy all the things. Thankfully, my husband doesn't complain.
  6. That Airstream is AMAZING. I love it so much. If I only had the room... Also, Nanea's shave ice stand is adorable.
  7. I love your doll's names! I don't have any AG dolls, but I have some of their STUFF. If I had unlimited money I'd have every piece of furniture and accessory in the store. I was just really enjoying the Airstream camper, and especially it's outdoor cooking accessories. Some of my doll-collecting friends do have AG dolls, and so we go to the American Girl store a couple times a year. I especially want the typewriter, right now. I think my 1/3 scale archaeologist/author needs it for his desk. Which I also need. So many projects, so little time.
  8. Anyone besides me and @HeadshipRegent have AGs? As I said over in the JRod thread, I have a gang of *ticks on fingers* 21. I think. Yeah, it's 21. In order of appearance in the house: Marisol "Mari" Campbell (Marisol Luna, Girl of the Year 2005) Elyse Joubert (Truly Me #49) Eden Duarté (Adora Friends Wicked Witch of the West) Gracie Mae Edwards (Marie-Grace Gardner turned modern with a hair-straighten and pincurlectomy) Zoë Williams (My Twinn Adopt-a-Friend who has had an eyeswap and new wig) Kanani Akina (Kanani Akina, Girl of the Year 2011) Caroline Abbott (Carol
  9. Thank you! I love them so much. Also, Benny. LOVE. Mine is in the Light Brown resin color. I have to say, the majority of my dolls are secondhand, and the ones I have bought new (like the Benny) were bought when there was a special event - I think Iplehouse had a 5% off code and also were doing all colors except ebony (which is what I wanted) at the same price as NS. My Benny is named Eliza and is loosely inspired by Bessie Coleman. I don't have a Pullip, yet, but I keep looking. I barely resisted when I found the Peter Pan one at Tuesday Morning last winter! I do have a Hestia
  10. I love your collection! Oh MAN, I want a BJD so bad. It will never happen unless I sell pretty much the entirety of my gang of AGs, but I always look and love. A few I've pined for over the years are Iplehouse Limited JID Benny - I mean, come on, just LOOK at her. Iplehouse Special Edition JID Asa - Again, guhhhhh. Smart Doll Harmony - Danny Choo is Jimmy Choo's son, and Jimmy designs the doll's shoes!, and she just looks fun! Pullip Alice du Jardin Mint Pullip Sepia Classical Alice Pullip Mad Hatter in Steampunk World Pullip Another Alice - BLACK AL
  11. Anyone else collect Ball Jointed Dolls? I've been in the hobby since late 2008... I initially thought I'd never be able to afford even one, but I rolled some change and saved a bit, and my first arrived Dec. 15, 2008. Then they began multiplying. I now have... 39? How did that happen? The current population includes The Airship Crew: Crow - Dolkot Day Riddick - Dollzone Mo Finn - Minifee Shushu Kale - Minifee Elf Shiwoo Asher - Littlefee Elf Shiwoo Talyn - Minifee El Eliza - Iplehouse Benny Baron - Lati Rucas Ed - Ringdoll Val

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.

      This evening a biker dude went out of his way to follow my car into a retail store's parking lot to lecture me on - get this - braking when the light turned yellow. I had been going the speed limit and it was by no means the shortest stop I've ever made. He condescendingly told me that next time I should hit the gas because people like him could "go splat" into my car. Really dude?!? If you're going to drive any vehicle, especially a motorcycle, actually learn to drive it and don't effing tailgate me when I'm going the speed limit. And if you did rear-end me, guess whose fault it would be? Certainly not the person who was obeying the law.
      Also, I hate living in a society where I have to say this, but I am soooo thankful my male coworker was with me. The biker stopped his bike right behind my car when I parked and wouldn't move it until his lecture was over. If I had been alone I would have been terrified.

      Happens every single year.
      I am out of sorts, missing my dad, crying and needing to talk about him and sometime later in the day I realize it's his birthday.  
      Today.  I always chalk it up to being around Father's Day and all the ads and such, but so weird like I have an subconscious calendar for sadness that never fails to send me a reminder.
      Was listening to this on the way to work this am thinking of him.  I know it's supposed to be about a relationship, but to me it just speaks to dead parents. 
      Happy Birthday, Daddy.  It's another shitty fucking day without you.
