New Acquisitions

Today Baby Cat and I went to a Doll Show out at the National Guard Armory.  We haven't been to a doll show together since Baby Cat was, well, a baby.  We tried to go last September, but we had a series of unfortunate events that kept us from getting to see the show.  Then Baby Cat had to go off to school, so the whole year passed until this Doll Show.  We've been planning to go for a while, so we were both very excited!

The first thing we realized when we got there was that there were a lot of things to look at in every price range.  The second thing we realized is, unfortunately, we both have expensive taste, but not the pocket-books to match. 

We did, however, find a few fairly inexpensive things to add to our collection.  First, we found two adorable Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls.  Baby Cat named hers Wilhelmina (after Wilhelmina Murray from Dracula),  mine is named Pandora.  They are both in very good shape, but since they didn't have any of their original tags or anything, we can only guess how old they are.  But guess what! We don't care!  We love them both anyway. 

Baby Cat also found this wonderful little sword for a doll that she crocheted for her brother a while back. The doll is Link from "Legend of Zelda." The sword is the perfect size and shape.  He was very happy to get this wonderful little gift.

When Link isn't busy defending Hyrule, the sword even fits in his scabbard!

Lastly, Baby Cat got this beautiful, albeit creepy, little original doll, that she named Isadora.  We both just fell in love with her.  The woman that created her had a lot of other things that we really loved as well, but we didn't really have the funds to buy everything we wanted.  So, maybe next time.  We were smart and got her business card while we were there.  I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of her down the road.  If you'd like to check out her Etsy shop, just go to  



  1. Nice finds! I know what you mean about a limited pocketbook. :-( LOL xo Jennifer

  2. Cats,
    Wish I could have come along...
    Love your finds, particularly Isadora. I am amazed at some people's imaginations! (Even though 'bizarre' would be one of many appropriate adjectives for her...)
