I will mention new items here and refere to the different albums, I will probably not be placing any pictures here as I have to save as much room as I can - it's not free to run this homepage :). I just changed the way I place the news and hope this is easier. I'll place the newest additions just belowe the month so the news are always on top and I start by mentioning the albums that has got new pictures.
Jeg vil nævne nye ting her og henvise til de forskellige albums, jeg vil sikkert ikke sætte billeder ind her da jeg må spare på pladsen hvor jeg kan - det er ikke gratis at have en hjemmeside :).
Jeg har lige ændret måden at fortælle om nyheder. Det nyeste vil altid stå lige under måneden og jeg starter med at nævnte de berørte albums, det skulle gøre det lettere at se nyhederne.
I got a mystery Barbie head on a standard body - not the original - and I really couldn't figure out who she was. A friend of mine seeked help in USA and now I know what it is. I created an album in the Vintage Barbie doll section called Unused repro head, because that's what she is and as I understand it a real catch, but take a look yourself.
I have little by little placed pictures of new outfits in the Barbie, Francie and Skipper albums, I was especially happy to add pictures of the first version AA Francie in her original swimsuit, a lucky find in a charity shop in Denmark and the swimsuit on facebook.
I have also added a new album in the section with Europe Fashiondolls, I just got my first and maybe only Caprice doll and she has got her own album though there are just 2 pictures of her, more will hopefully be added later as she gets a wardrobe.
I also got a Skipper lot with some outfits from 1970-1972, most not complete but a start.
I just got my second japanese Scarlet, this time the early version, no I only would like to find some original outfits for both dolls.
I have placed new pictures in my albums during the months but I have not taken the time to mention the updates, most have been Mod Barbie but a new doll has arrived in my collection and has had her own Album next to Japanese dolls, it is a repro Kiraz doll called Mamzelle De Paris. She has also got herself a boyfriend, my friend Lilli has created him in 3D using Kiraz drawings from the 60's, she is really so skilled, she also made the outfits for both Mamzelle and boyfriend.
I am not getting a lot of new vintage dolls and outfits, I have a large collection and it's hard to find the things I'm missing, the dolls and outfits I really want are way to expensive for me so I have started buying newer dolls like Tonner's Tyler and friends, Tonner's Tiny Kitty Collier, Tonner's Sindy repro doll, Susan Wakeen's Eve, Somer and Fields Daisy and Willow, Franklin Mint Jackie Kennedy doll and some outfits, Twiggy and Gene Marshall dolls. Right now I'm looking to buy Madame Alexander's Alex Fairchild doll. I also got a small collection of Silkstone dolls - 10 so far and a boxed fashion.
There's no room to she these on my own homepage but the Barbie Club I am a member of has room for the pictures, if anybody wants to look it's called Barbie Klub Vest but be warned it's in danish, but you can of course still just open the albums and look at the pictures and ask questions in other languages, we will answer them in English or German or Danish of course.
Today I got a clone of Sonja by Ottolini with blue hair, she can be seen in the Europe Fashion doll album in Sonja's album.
I just made another adjustment in the section Europe Fashiondolls, I learned from other collectors that what I had earlier leaned to be Schwabinchen outfit really was for a doll called Gitta, so I made her an album removing my pictures of these outfits from the Schwabinchen album and I also had a Gitta doll I thought to be a Caroline doll by Åhlens but she's for sure Gitta so she is also now in her new album.
I don't get around to write about new items a lot these days, I do get them and I mostly get Barbie outfits these days, either new ones or I get the pieces I miss to complete an outfit. Today I did however create a new album in the Europe Fashion doll section, it's called Britta and it's a brand new doll in my collection.
I don't update much these days, I don't buy a lot because I think the prices has gone through the roof and I'm not willing to pay whatever price for things to my large collection, only what I think items are worth but it seems to me that some people has too much money and when they see something they want the pay whatever price just because they can and don't stop and think if it's worth that much, that kind of spoils it for the rest of us that has not lot our common sense. Well, my collection is large so really I can take it easy though there are things I really would like in my collection.
Today I got 2 Petra dolls mint in boxes with wrist tags, wow, never thought I could find those in Denmark but I did along with 4 boxed outfits from Boutique 1969. I think the dolls may be from that year too but I placed them with the early dolls as they have that face.
I also finally got Ken's American Airlines Captain outfit.
Just got the next outfit for Gaby/Kessy called Im Herbst which means in Autumn and the picture can be seen in the Schildkröt Tressy album.
More updates now, I just got a lot from Germany with rare outfits for Gaby/Kessy, the Tressy version made by Schildkröt and you can see them in that album. I'm expecting another of those outfits in a week or so.
I have not been writing much about updates this year, it has been a pretty busy year for me, but I have added a lot of pictures mostly in the Barbie albums, mostly the MOD years and a little Francie too that's what I have been buying mostly, the other dolls have been resting some.
In the section with Tammy by Ideal I added a new album, a friend og mine gave me a Tiffany Taylor doll and I then bought a Tuesday Taylor doll and I have now taken pictures of both dolls.
I'm not getting much done here right now, the reason is that this provider has told me that I can't upload more new pictures so my homepage can't grow, I have to delete pictures. I just deleted an album with European Mod dolls as I have sold most of them anyway. I also deleted lots of pictures of my Swedish Åhlens collection as I have sold most of it so now new owners can share the informations, I don't have room for it.
I got a couple of new dolls in the collection with their own album, first of all Faerie Glen's Tammy clone on Tina Cassini body, which I learned about from a French book by Kathy Moreau, I have placed a picture of that book in the literature album. The Faerie Glen doll is shown in the section with Tammy clones.
I also got a new French doll also shown in Kathy Moreau's book, a friend in our Barbie group found this for me. I gave the doll an album in the section Europe Fashion dolls, it's a no name doll for now.
I was so lucky to find a nice Barbie Mod outfit from 1969 complete in a flea market in Denmark, it's Fab City and it's shown in the album. I also bought a couple of Francie outfits from 1969 - Sissy Suit and Sugar Sheers and the very nice French seller added some items, 3 hats from 1967, a pair of shorts for 1966 SL Francie in the version with larger checks, I had an extra top so now I have two complete original outfits. In Holland I found Benefit Performance which I have been wanting for years and you can see it in the 1965 Outfits album. I need to update my vintage Barbie dolls pictures, I have gotten new ones since I made the latest pictures but I hope to get there soon.
Så fik jeg det næste sæt til Gaby/Kessy, det hedder Im Herbst - i efteråret - og er nu i albummet med Schildkröt Tressy.
Jeg har ikke rigtig fået skrevet updates på dansk, jeg har i det hele taget ikke fået opdateret meget, men hen ad vejen har jeg lagt nye billeder in i de forskellige Barbie albums og også lidt i Francies og Skippers.
For ikke længe siden lavede jeg et nyt album under Tammy med Tiffany og Tuesday Taylor, nye dukke i min samling fra Ideal.
I dag har jeg også lagt nye billeder in i Schildkröt under Tressy, jeg har fået nogle sjældne sæt til Gaby/Kessy og jeg venter at få et sæt mere i løbet af den næste uge.
