As always a big apologies for to long time without posting. We, Marceline and I, were really very busy :). I just started an partial time job in a office and I had to go for some weeks to Prague for the capacitation. So I´m reallly sorry to leave this place and my dolls for months but now, thanks to my insufferable neighbor (in addition to jet lag) I can write at 3:45 a.m. Who needs sleep?
Well, I suppose the whole world of doll collectors was in shock because of the information about Tonner Doll Company future. I´m a big fan of their dolls. I have another brands in my collection but always I will love Tonner girls and boys more than the others. Tonner is my first love in this fascinating collector world and I will never forget the fabulous feeling when I received my first Tonner couple – Blush & Bashful Basic Esme and Basic 2016 Russel Williams.
I bought them with my great friend Erika and I picked them up during my stay in Prague in 2006. More than ten years ago. More than ten years of joy, passion, enjoyment, creativity, learning and new friends from literaly whole world.
I´m not sure if I will be able to follow new image of Tonner Doll Company. Jazz is a great doll but she is so different… I saw some photos of Phyn & Aero dolls and they look amazing, but I don´t like BJD resin dolls. And their prices. Now the mexican peso is really devalued so every doll I buy costs twice more to me then five years ago. +300 USD more shipping is too much for me now. No way.
Of course there are more details about my future as a doll collector. I have no time lately, I have a lot of economic obligations and I have so many beautiful dolls closed in their boxes. So I decided to change the course of my hobby a little. But, obviously, I had to buy my last Tonner (or Wilde) doll before :).
Yes, Simple Little Miette – Raven is mine :). When Wilde presented Miette I was very tempted to buy her and this one was my favourite. But I just had bought Halvar and I decided to wait. But she was sold out very quickly and it´s rare to find her in e-bay.
And then I received the notice about my capacitation in Prague and I checked the web-site of my another great friends from Czech Republic, Lenka and David from Dolls-Doll.com. What a surprise they had Simple Little Miette – Raven in stock :D. So I inmediately wrote to Lenka about my plan and we, Marceline (of course Marceline had to go with me 😀 ) and I, brought Miette (now Lena) from Prague, in the same way when I had brought Esme and Russel ten years ago. The circle is closed.
Miette is so simbolic to me. She is probably my last doll, I brought her from Czech Republic and bought her to my favourite sellers :D. So Miette now is part of my collection, part of my Deja Vu – Primrose – Imperium Park gang 😀 and I decided to name her Lena thanks to my friend Lenka, of course.
Well, so I was in Prague, I bought Lena and I met to Lenka and David, but I also recieved a lot of fantastic presents from Lenka (http://dolls-doll.com/), Erika (http://ericas-minis.blogspot.mx/) and Svetlana (https://www.facebook.com/blacksvetlus/), as always, and I took some photos of Lena and Marceline during my stay in Czech Republic.
There are my little treasures from the trip:
And Lena with this cute bottle I received from KLM during my flight :).
Of course, I will create for my dolls. I have so many beautiful dolls and I have a lot of new ideas for them. So this is not “Adiós” to my hobby. It´s only little change. I hope it will be positive…
