I'm not sure if I'm the only one that hasn't got in on the Blythe doll obsession or if it's kind of an "underground" thing... Blythe, if you don't know, was a doll introduced in the 70's, but never really took off with the kiddies. Yoy could pull a string (i believe) & her eyes would change colors (yeah, no wonder the kids were scared!). She's not for kids anymore...
I've been checking out all the cool pictures on flickr & holy cow... there is some pretty elaborate stuff going on! Now, of course, I WANT ONE TOO!! To some, i realize, dolls are creepy & i totally understand why, but... I find these girls & all their outfits to be so cute! When i told the mister i wanted one of these girls, i got the "oh-no-dolls!!" look from him, but i assured him i wouldn't be like "those" girls who have like 50, i only needed 1... for now (hee, hee!!). i think another reason i MUST have one... they aren't that easy to find, i love a good hunt for something.
Here are a bunch of Christmas Blythe's from flickr. The artists name is below each photo. You'll either LOVE these or you'll be totally freaked out...
Ok, i better finish my Christmas cards, think about wrapping gifts... or maybe just go to the art room, that sounds like MUCH more fun!
