One Year Dolly-versary


It's been one year. One full year. Unbelievable.

One year ago today, my first Asian Ball Jointed Dolls followed me home. My first dolls of ANY kind since I'd given up Barbies at 13 or so.

Miranda and Rabbit, though Rabbit was supposed to be a secret.

I had such plans for Rabbit, and I didn't know what I would do with Miranda, and in the end it was Miranda who stole the show and Rabbit chose a quiet life in the background.

One year.

Almost none of my original plans for the dolls have happened. And instead, things so much bigger and grander than I ever would've imagined. I never dreamed this blog would have the readership it does. I never imagined the dolly friends I would make.

The dolls changed everything.

There were those who said it wouldn't last. That the dolls wouldn't hold my interest for more than 6 months. And in the end, it was they who could not hold my interest.

One year with my dolly companions and their stories. One year of tiny clothes, and tiny dramas, and the world of pixies and fairies.

One year.

Thank you, all of you, who read this blog. It will continue and I will update it (Promise!). There are so many more stories here, and some will just live in my head, and some I will tell you.

It's been an amazing year. Thank you to all of my dolly sisters and brothers and friends for making it such a fantastic year, and sharing the weirdness that is life at the Treehouse with me.

One year. So many stories... Well, we'll just have to see where we are next year, hu? :)
