And I mean it. One person makes fun of me and that’s it.. I will never blog again.. (like that would EVAH stop me).
We had an AMAZING NICKY cardmaking party here at DA BELLA BOOOTIQUE last friday night in honor of the CUTEST sarah EVAH.. take a looky at her blog here! Happy birthday Sarah! Christine who owns/runs www.scraptime.ca also came along with Penny and Amanda and Diana and and and..! We had a wonderful time laughing our heads off.. EATING our heads off and dancing OUR HEADS OFF! AND THEN IT HAPPENED.
It was almost midnight.. we were a little giddy and Sarah HAD to mention Christine’s collection. Ummmm DO THEY KNOW ME? DO THEY KNOW THAT I AM AN OBSSESSIVE COMPULSIVE SHOPPAH? DO THEY KNOW THAT I LOVE WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT? Yes.. they knew. OHHHHHH they knew.
They were discussing Christine’s Blythe Doll Collection.. So I “says”.. WHAT”S A BLYTHE AND DO I NEED IT? And THEY “says”.. YA you so need THEM.. Ummm THEM??? there are multiple BLYTHE thingies? And they said YES.. they are DOLLS.. and they are sooo cute and cool and funky.
So off we went to the internet and searched them all and oohed and ahhed.. 4 GROWN women… oohing and ahhing. COULD YOU BELIEVE? but I really can’t help myself when it comes to dollhouses, dolls, miniatures etc.. CANNOT help myself. THEN Christine tells me that this Blythe collection has a HUGE following! There are outfits made and sold on ETSY, there are BLYTHE DOLL PARTIES.. furniture etc… The blythe doll originated in 1972 (my birth year) and were stopped in production a year after.. well 20 years later a RESURGENCE came about and here we are..the history is actually quite interesting and can be found here if anyone is as CUH-RAZY as I am.. Now some are QUITE CREEEEEEPYYYYYY.. so I was turned off for a minute.. and then Christine told me that they come in a PETITE SIZE.. and then I was sold…
Whaddya think I did on Saturday Morning?
Yes they are sitting in a cubby in front of my desk keeping me company! LOL.. would YOU WANNA SIT AND STARE AND NICKY AND RYAN ALL DAY? LOL.. just kiddinK 🙂
