Oh Flibbertygibberts!

I want to use such profanity right now! At the precise moment on Christmas Eve I was unpacking the doll closet, where my the poor Grandvillians have languished these long months, our landlord rolled up, unannounced to tell us he's selling the place and basically we have to leave. Let me tell you, it was a somber Christmas, putting on the brave face for the kids and such.

Fudge!!! So no unpacking of dolls, no reboot of projects. No doll blogging! This sucks. But let's look on the bright side. Perhaps we will find a better house, put down some roots and get in debt to the bank for the rest of our lives. If we're lucky!

So my dears, it will be two months of purging a lot of junk and packing up. Sigh.

I hope I'll pop in with a pic now and again. And I'm still doing a doll give away when I reach 100 followers. I'm at 96! I'll be sure to put together a giveaway doll and keep her in a safe place.

Sorry for the big tease! I'll see you around the ides of March!



  1. OH my goodness Dani!!!! I can't even begin to imagine that! I commend you for sticking to flibberty gibbets...I'd have been hard pressed not to use all those special characters to make up bad words!

    Good luck in your search for a new HOME! May you find exactly what you are looking for and exactly what you need! Sending good thoughts your way!

    1. Thanks! This could be a blessing in disguise.

  2. I'll pray for you and your family that everything gonna be alright

    1. Thanks Sergio! Moving used to be fun when I only had a one bedroom apartment!

  3. Gah! I'm really sorry. My friend was in the same position a couple months ago, and I had to help her pack everything in about 2 weeks! But I'm sure Grandville will look even better at your new place, and I can't wait for the giveaway!

  4. Ugh, how frustrating! You definitely have the right attitude though. This could be the start of something awesome. :) Sending good vibes and energy your way, I know you'll be super busy for a while.

    I hope you guys still get to enjoy New Year's.

    1. Thanks Tracy! Trying to stay positive!

  5. Ouch! Gonna give you a little nudge toward owning that home of your own so you can turn this lemon into lemonade! Much luck and sending positive vibes your way. Bon courage !

    1. Thanks Ro! I still unearthed one doll home. At least I can take some pics in the meantime!

  6. Yikes! I think I would have had a breakdown! Nice guy to drop it on you on Xmas eve, too! :P Well, I do seem to remember talking to you about how much you missed moving & packing and unpacking, and having new surroundings... maybe the universe was listening, lol. Hope you guys find a great place. Hang in there!

Doll Dyeing

So I had this BJD friend with this sad doll that I just fell in love with.  I knew they had issues bonding and I knew that baby had to be mine. I told her to let me know if she ever wanted to sell. She didn't do that but listed her anyway. (I thought we were cool, man.)  I was very lucky that the first person who wanted her stepped aside.  I thought if I lost this girl I would have a breakdown.

You see, she was very special.  She had a history.  Here's what I can gather:  she was purchased by this shady ass dude in the hobby. Everyone knows he is shady. 
So he hired a faceup artist to paint the face and give her scarring. He never explained that he wanted raised scars, not gashes in the resin.  I've seen the proof that she wrote up the agreement for this guy and the work was just GORGEOUS.

He claims she damaged it. Whatever.  So apparently there were attempts from this guy to sell her with no luck and he eventually gave it away and my doll acquaintance won her.  She dyed h…

Re-introducing Aniata and her Diorama

Hello Doll Peeps!

I have loads of new items for sale so click on the shopping ladies on the right. Most of the first tier stuff is gone so lots of discounted stuff!

When we last spoke, my doll was named Kala. I had posted her in the BJD Addicts group and a few people remarked that she looked like a Taino. My family is Haitian and my husband's is Puerto Rican, the Tainos lived in both. I thought this was fortuitous. So I emailed my aunt, a fan of the Taino and told her about the doll and that I needed a new name. Kala was always supposed to be temporary and I feared it was taking hold.

She said, "I feel like her name is Aniata." And I knew it was right. It's hard to get the tongue around but if you just pronounce the T softly, like in Anita, then it's much more natural.

Anyway introducing Aniata!  (Doll nudity ahead.)

I've been working on the hut like crazy since the last post. While I waited for paint and glue to dry, I made Aniata stuff. I made her necklace…

An Official Farewell

Hi Guys,

I don't know if you're still reading this but I'm officially taking this blog offline. It was so fun to be part of the 1/6th scale doll community and on Facebook at least, I still am. But I feel like the BJD community is mostly on other platforms.

I'll always be at and you can reach me at the gmail of the same name.  Hey, I may even start a blog over on the site, so who knows?

Here's a picture of nearly all my doll family (missing Doll Chateau Alma, who doesn't have a face up yet, and an Impldoll Martin head.)

EDIT: Blogger will STILL not let me comment. haha.  Anyway, due to the very positive response, I will not take this blog down. I remember how heartbroken I was that Smidgehouse didn't leave hers up. So I'll keep this here forever, okay?

I might even post a link to any blog posts on my website. See you...always!

It's be great collecting and growing with you!
