Finished at last! and my camera is almost "dead"

My oh my...things have been soooooooooooooooo busy lately that it has taken me months to finish 2 dolls.
Yes...2! Anyway, here are some ( absolutely not good at all) photos.

Meanwhile, my camera is slowly saying "goodbye" .
Pics are getting not so good. Big sigh...

Time for a new one? I know it is silly but I really am attached to this little pink camera that I have carried with me for so long. It represents more than a camera. It is the first thing I purchased with my first salary of my first long contract job when I arrived in England.
It has accompanied me along my artistic path here on Blogland and it is like a little companion that has witnessed so many moments of my life.
Yep...a camera...
MY little pink camera.
(Just added a photo of the camera folowing the lovely comment of Parlance)

Well, time to move on to new things.
And many changes are on the way my dear friends.
Yes, many more ...

The future will be good.Because this is all I want . A good and happy life.

This is what I wish for you too.

Live, Laugh and Love

CARPE DIEM my dear friends.

Pullip and Olivia(s) + YOUR doll collections

Will I ever grow up inside???? I actually really want to grow up inside?

Well, of course, when it comes to paying the rent, taxes and bills,
the adult me knows exactly how to deal with things but, there is another part that is saying " leave me alone!!!! I just want to dream!"

Are you like this sometimes?
Anyway, I have had crushes lately:
Olivia the pig with biiiiiiiiiiiiig dreams.

Just thought I could identify with her.

She made her big entrance in the house today and I was overjoyed when I discovered her little pink face

She's very quickly felt at home.

Moreover, she's been welcomed by Olivia I, her elder sister who arrived last week.

No boredom at home, it is new plans about this, new plans about that.

Things have got to change and both Olivias are leading the way with their great expectations.
Those dolls are Madame Alexander dolls. OK, no OOAK here but ... just couldn't resist!

Another doll has also found a place in the house. It is a Pullip doll!
Have you ever heard of those ball jointed dolls that just make y
our heart melt

I am discovering that people do customise them and the result can be absolutely breath taking like in the work of Julien Martinez who customises Blythe dolls for example.

The doll I chose to purchase is called Bloody Red Hood
ok, doesn't sound super friendly like this but...she's got something red Just like Olivia I and Olivia II !!!

I have always been intrigued by the story of The Little Riding Hood. And have a good selection of books related to the topic.
I imagine this is why this doll "spoke" to me straight away.
Am not sure I want to fall in the BJD mania which is another very time consuming ( and expensive) hobby according to what I know.

I am also a OOAK art doll collector and have recently "adopted "2 pieces.
Will have to share with you my collection.

If you too have a collection that you would like to share, I am more than happy to prepare a post about OUR doll collection. Shall we?
Just feel free to contact me with photos with your name and the name of the doll artists that feature on the it.
Oh yay!!! Let's do this!!!

You know? Just as we did with our studio exhibition here ( also kept in my sidebar if you've noticed).

In the meantime, I REALLY have to finish my pieces (both reserved now).

See you soon!
