My Friend Jenny.. no Blythe.. NO Chrissa?

FROM THIS --(My Friend Jenny was the first non-baby doll that I truely loved. I love her so much she is still with me. Albiet, sitting in the basement. )
TO THIS. (And now. I have a BLYTHE. YES. Kill me now)

"ADG Golden Goddess" in an amazingly horrid 70's dress - you can see Aine can't stand her.
Here she is in her new dress and braided hair.
And I can't stand it. This Blythe doll creeps me out but at the same time I am like IT IS SO COOL. I don't know how to describe it - but if you look at it one way - you are like WOW. Than if you look at it another way - you are like what is wrong with that thing?! I can see the inside of it's head via the eyes? EW!! And um? Isn't this a bobble head type of doll? WHAT am I DOING?!! I mean - sewing clothes? All done by hand. I mean - I never had a barbie (I know! I was disadvantaged!) but the body has to be akin to a Barbie doll - ie almost impossible to make clothes for. How do people do this?

I have yet to name her. I am thinking since I got her right before my Mom's bday - the Ides of March. I might just call her Idey, Idea or Ides. LOL Don't worry, I will not be altering her. I can't bear to tear apart a book let alone a doll. No - siry-bob - I mean - there was a reason why I left nursing so don'thya be thinking that I am going to start operating on my dolls eyes?! Um NO. And that is a promise.

Now I am thinking about procuring this cuttie - all because the story behind the doll is that she is a CRAFTER and her grandma taught her how to craft. Oh and don't you know she and her grandma sew and craft in her grandma's sunlit backroom! *hits head* Seriously now, they need to STOP playing with my childhood memories. And UM HELLO does she NOT look like My Friend Jenny above? but with BLUE EYES?! Also, will you look at that craft table? *flails* I mean - the sewing machine feet goes up and down and them there are some real knitting needles! How cool iS THAT? No worries - I won't be buying the craft table no matter how nifty cool it is. Chrissa though? Hmmmm.
No matter what - though all these little "phases" I know my true friend. MY FRIEND AINE.

Aww such a precious baby who is healing betters every day. Today we had our first outing and I will post pictures tomorrow. :)
Hugs all! Nan and zzing Aine.

Here you are! Your link at SIStv is busted, but I found you!

AG Julie makes me laugh...because *I* was 8 in 1974...My dd has an AG doll, but lost interest in it once she got her Nintendo DS, so IT IS MINE.

Congrats on your Blythe doll! can see into her HEAD? Okay, that's just wrong...

I think Blythe dolls are very cool, but I've never seen one in real life. I swapped tiny Hello Kitty crochet things with someone who was planning to use them with her Blythe.

I'm glad your Aine is doing well!

you are so right, you look at her one way, it's totally different than another. You're hilarious.

You know you could name her IDA! That's a real name. Or you could name her Mardie like March. Just a thought.
