Miranda Wandering Away - on eBay This Time

It is after a lot of time and consideration that I am making this post.

Miranda is leaving. For good. She goes on eBay on Sunday (tomorrow) afternoon and will end up wherever she ends up. My eBay profile is here -

Pretty much everyone left from the Wylde Kingdom crew will be joining her on eBay in the next few days/weeks. Dismantling a kingdom takes time, and there is a LOT of stuff...

This was not an easy decision to come to, but it's been coming for a while.

After much moaning and gnashing of teeth, I realized that it HAS to be eBay - there just is no other way for me to find her a home.

There are lots of people who would adopt her, I know, but how could I possibly choose?

If I chose a friend, people would expect them to continue the blog, maybe even her Facebook profile, and while it would be great if those things happened, the person who adopts her shouldn't feel like they HAVE to continue her stories.

The doll "community" can be an ugly place. Especially when there are expectations. I won't do that to someone else. 

So a private auction on eBay is the best solution, I think. If the person who adopts her WANTS to continue the blog, Miranda will be coming with her domain name and blog and also her Facebook profile.

If they don't, they're welcome to delete them all and put her on a shelf.

It doesn't matter to me anymore. I am done with the world of BJDs.

It's been almost 10 years of Miranda... but it ends in a week. Sunday,  July 31st, her auction will end and she will have a new home.

The Wylde Kingdom is no more.

Thank you for being here while it was. :)

P.S. - Miranda's auction has been delayed by a bit while I figure out why I thought auctioning her was a better idea than just running her over with my car. Seriously, I have never received such hateful emails in my life (and I've gotten some pretty hateful emails, let me tell you). So while I'm figuring out what I'm going to do, she is in doll limbo. I will keep you posted when/if I decide to go on with the auction. - Wendy

Midnight in the Dollhouse MEETING & Snuffy Blog!

We're having a meeting today at the Wylde Kingdom Grange. Business meeting, about Midnight in the Dollhouse and upcoming things. 

I got the Grange all cleaned up and snapped this picture of Snuffy, my toy elephant, hanging out.

And that got me thinking. Wendy thinks toy photography is so fun, maybe I should try it too?

'Cause Snuffy is a GREAT toy, and I like photographing him.

So, I made a blog for my Snuffy photography. It's The Shuffling Snuffy, and you can see it here -

I'm kind of excited to have a new project. Check it out and hopefully there will be more Snuffy photographs soon!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I treated myself to a crochet pattern from Sweet Silver Creations, and I love it!

But there's no time for crocheting today!

I gotta get the Grange ready for our big Midnight in the Dollhouse planning meeting tomorrow!

Wish me luck. It seems bigger in here now that I have to sweep it all.
