It's been a while since I have shared any photos of my Blythes here on my blog. I have made some beautiful friends through this fun hobby and so for those who love Blythes, or maybe are thinking of dipping their toes into the collecting waters, here are a few of the photos I've been taking of my girls lately.
To those who collect these special dolls, you will understand that they are so much more than dollies. The five Blythes above (in the group shot) are all original Kenner Blythe dolls from 1972 (my year of birth), so to have some special dolls who are the same age as me is pretty special indeed.
There is something relaxing and calming about choosing outfits, playing with hairstyles and accessories and choosing tiny shoes to match. Part of the fun in collecting Bythe is taking photos, and sharing these with fellow collectors. A lot of this sharing happens on Flickr, with lots of Kindred spirits sharing photos of the dolls that they love too. You can see my Flickr HERE.
I've had to say goodbye to a few of my very special dolls this year, so to have these girls still with me is something I am so very grateful for. It's a fun hobby to have. Tell me, what is your hobby? I have a few :)
For those interested in my Blythe dresses, I am working on a dress with sleeves and will hopefully have some for my store soon. I just want to tweak the pattern a little more until I am completely happy. You can see my etsy store for Blythe dresses HERE - The Stitched Bluebird.
