Friday Favorite

Today I’m sharing something that you’ll either love or hate.

I hope this doesn’t ruin our friendship.

See, I have a small collection of Bradley poseable dolls from the 60s and 70s.  You know the ones–cloth, poseable arms, big eyes, flourescent make up, crazily coiffed hair.

I do regular searches on etsy for them.  Sometimes nabbing a really great deal, sometimes crying a little inside because the doll I want is beyond my price range.

One day, I ran across DolliPop Vintage’s shop and I was hooked.

DolliPop Vintage isn’t just selling your grandma’s Bradley doll.  Nosirree.  DolliPop Vintage is selling unique, one of a kind creations MADE FROM Bradley dolls.

I have a love of all things circus, and slightly creepy….yet lovely.  And, when I saw these beauties?

I had to have them immediately.

I ordered them that day, and anxiously awaited their arrival.

Meanwhile, I told everyone I could think of about them.  That was when I realized not everyone shared my love of these two little girls.  Not everyone wanted them in their own home, above their computer screen day in and day out.  Not everyone would stare lovingly at them, speak sweet nothings to them, create stories and outings for them.

To each his own, as they say.

I just cannot imagine a world without these babies of mine.  They’re simply exquisite in person–beautifully painted and seamlessly merged.

DolliPop Vintage has a a number of other beauties in the shop right now–I’m just trying to decide which one will be my next sweetheart to join the gang…..  Daisy, here, is calling my name:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/102893263/daisy-vintage-upcycled-bradley-glamour?ref=shop_home_active

But maybe I should go with Flora and Fauna…they could be the older sisters of my little sailor girls:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/151774511/flora-fauna-vintage-upcycled-bradley?ref=shop_home_active

Check out the shop–I mean, if you’re not hiding under a table already.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/DolliPopVintage
