Tonner Convention - Last Day and Much More News

The table doll was this adorable Tiny Betsy. I will try to find out more about her but I love the little airplane and her outfit. Really CUTE!!!


It looks like it was a fun convention with tons of dolls to choose from .

I got lucky and two dear girls have purchased Raven for me. Yay.
There will be dolls available next week sometime but I hate that mad rush to shop on-line. I like knowing that I'm getting my favorite doll from the event. It may cost me a few dollars more because the tax there is higher than tax here - shocking, I know. Or maybe not.

The bird dolls were $195. for those who wish to know.

Carol of Dreamcastle Dolls has a wonderful page with pictures of not only the dolls but the people and the competition OOAKs as well. She's a great doll dealer, too!

In other news...we've started some serious packing in preparation to move to our new home in Pennsylvania, just outside of Allentown. We are truly blessed to have found lovely buyers for our own home in this terrible real estate market.

I will continue blogging but I'm going to be packing up my studio and things are going to be a little different for a while. I really can't wait to move out of this forest. It was wonderful for 15 years but it's time to move a little closer to civilization.

It's really hard to believe how many dolls and related items I have now that I've begun to put everything in cartons. That will make an interesting photo.

My new Ficon, Leonie, arrived yesterday amidst the flurry of activity and all I could do was take some quick snapshots. I will fully review her next week but suffice it to say that I was not pleased with the difficulty of closing the boots - I couldn't figure them out! I put her in a different outfit.
She has a gorgeous body and poses beautifully. I think I actually like her better than the Sybarite body but we'll see as I play with her more.

I took all the Marwencol donations over to the Tonner Company Store yesterday. Noreen and I arranged everything on a table in the back room. I think Mark is going to be overwhelmed when he sees all of this.
You can't really tell from the photo what is included here. It's unbelievable. People were very generous.

No visit to the Tonner Store would be complete without gazing lovingly upon the dolls.

  2. The Antoinette in the final photo has such a wonderful expression on her face!
    All the best to you for your move. Moving is always hell, but I hope it goes miraculously smoothly for you! (:
