So Much For Good Intentions

Before I begin my first post for 2015, I would like to welcome the new readers to my blog, and thank those who have loyally read my ramblings over the past year. I hope you will all stick around, for there is much to be written this year and I couldn't think of nicer people to share it with.

-oOo-

Well it seems all my good intentions of curbing my doll purchases, have flown out the window all ready! As you know I ordered Darin on Christmas Day, then the New Year arrived with a further purchase of this dear little girl from Soom!


I am going to blame this purchase on a very keen iMda collector, petitemarine. After all it was she who said: "yes S you should order a babette! she is my favourite, i think you would love her i'm almost tempted to order a second babette for myself!"

So, to quote a conversation that took place in the film ~ The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Evelyn: Nothing here has worked out quite as I expected.
Muriel: Most things don't. But sometimes what happens instead is the good stuff.


and this really is the good stuff!!

Hope you all have lots of the good stuff this year too!

  1. Firstly, congrats on the new doll purchase! And that quote is so perfect. That's usually how life goes doesn't it? It's very serendipitous.

    1. Thanks Alasse. Yes, life does have a way of taking charge sometimes, especially when you least expect it. :)

    1. Thank you Uraru, I know it's always lovely to add more dollies but I really was trying to slow it down . . . I am sooo hopeless. :)

  3. And I ordered a Pukifee Cupid totally unexpected. She shall be here at the end of next week. So exciting! Live's unexpected turns are the most magical ones. At least sometimes. ;)

    3. Oh in that case, let's hope we all receive unplanned happiness throughout 2015. :) I think the world could certainly do with it.

  5. LOL... this is how I fear my New Year resolution of 1 doll this year will go... I'm very afraid to see what Azone's 11th series will be, I'm absolutely hoping it doesn't appeal to me at all.

    I'm loving that SOOM girl you bought though, and I can't wait to see pictures of her!

    1. Oh dear Heather, I couldn't stop at one, but I was hoping i could get it down to maybe just one every two or three months. It will be a while before i have any photos, but hopefully not as long as the time it takes DollZone!

  6. Well, I'm glad you changed your mind about the curbing, she's a sweetie! I had planned on spending less money on dolls this year, but me too have already broken my own rule LOL. Hugs!

    1. Hee hee! I really didn't change my mind Night Owl, the doll did it! (With the help of petitemarine's encouragement.) We are both hopeless doll addicts, aren't we? But we are happy doll addicts. :)

  7. Sometimes, in spite of your best intentions to the contrary, a doll just wants to come live with you!

    In spite of my attempts at frugality this year, I've already made my first purchase. It's relatively small this time but the slippery slope always looms just ahead!

    1. And here's me thinking men have more discipline, you're just as bad as the rest of us. LOL! It's good of you to admit it Geektopian...and congratulations on your new purchase!
