Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!
Welcome to the next installment of the 'My Collection So Far...' posts. This one is focusing on the Journey Girls and Espari Dolls by Lotus. You might have already seen my collection if you caught the YouTube video about them. Still, I don't tell thier names in that so now you can find those out as well.
At the outset of my posting about my collections I was trying to list or show them in the order in which they came home to the Doll House. Well, with this post, I've completely thrown that idea out... Because it's getting harder and harder to remember which came home when without a lot of thought. So I'll try and tell a little bit about when/where they came from if I can recall as I write this post.
Spectrum was found at a Thrift Store and was one of the very first Journey Girl Dolls I ever owned.... Obviously I customized her along the way... I think she's adorable with her rainbow wig.
Portia was also found at a thrift store and I am so glad to have her. I think she looks so pretty in this My Life As Doll Party Planner doll dress.
Ava came home around Christmas and is named after my daughters best friend in elementary school.
Susannah is the Doll House resident Baker and Hairstylist as well... Yes, she is just that talented. She was my very first Journey Girl doll, a gift from my husband. She is named after a dear friend...
Hemalayaa is our resident yoga instructor.
Chelsea came home last summer when ToysRUs put her on too good a sale to pass up... In my first post about her I mentioned I might name her after a cousin but then one day when I was at church I glanced up at my good friend Chelsea and it just clicked, they are so alike!
Cindy came home new and in a fit of 'customizing madness' got her hair totally redone with a totally different wig...
Karen is part of the two doll set that Ava came with. She is named after my husbands Aunt.
Aliyah is an Espari doll I got as a gift from my husband.
Scarlett came home to the Doll House as one of my very first Journey Girls.
A couple of Journey Girls I've customized in the past have gone to live in Korea with my sister friend Frann. Here is a photo of them, below.
So that's it... Holler if you have any questions about details etc. that I've left out.
Have a great day!
