The Halo Repaints Blog: The Economics of Collecting Pt. 1: The "B" Word

The Halo Repaints Blog: The Economics of Collecting Pt. 1: The "B" Word: "These economic times have forced us to look at collecting differently. In the past we might have been able to collect purely from the heart ..."

Oh my I was just bad...New acquisitions of the genuine molded plastic variety...

shhhh...don't tell my husband.

Definitely did not need to do get this one...and this one...considering it a birthday present to myself but will be forced to boot some other girls off the dolly island.

This is an FR Mongram doll called Extravagance.  And I think that I might be crazy.  I am also trying to hunt down a Blythe doll at a reasonable price...

Spectacular Couture Dolls Shoes from Angelic Dreamz

Think Gaga.  I like the pistol heel boots myself.  Not all of these will fit Sybs or Tonner girls and evidently none of them will fit Antoinette...they are still pretty darn cool.

Interweave 2010 Knits Weekend is Here!

I loved last year's magazine..The Mariner Pullover looks promising and I totally will have to find a baby to wear it with me...or maybe have one to wear the matching sweater. I am totally serious.  I mean I will like love the baby and all..but yes he/she will also be an awesome accessory. :)  Hopefully a slimming one...

I am also loving the Prairie Lace Blouse.  The Conte Hoodie would be awesome for people who covet shibui sock yarn but hate to knit socks... I like the Briseis Pullover too...and its in a chunkier yarn so it would knit up in about two seconds on size 11 needles.  And I smell a new malabrigo hat in my future using the Byrony pattern.

Yum for fall knits...and I swear I am recording a podcast this weekend so help me Jebus.

Cherished Friends Cami & Jon Exclusive Rose & Chrys

Using the Suzette and Stella molds shrunk down to the antoinette scale.  I like the Suzette version in raven hair.  The Stella version looks smooshed and a bit pissy to me.  The retail at $84.99 and some of the proceeds go to the Shriner's Hospital.
