What a DELIGHT it was to spend last weekend in Portland, Oregon with my
11 yr old Granddaughter at her first doll show.
She knew what type of doll she desired....A BJD
After circling the show floor three times, she finally decided on this
She and I with her new doll :)
Cissy found a cozy spot in the stroller with Jena's reborn, Nicky Jack:
We purchased 2 more outfits for Cissy and set out on shopping again.
We found this sweet little BJD for just $5!!
Jena really loves her because unlike Cissy, she can change her wigs and move her eyes around.
I didn't tell her that she could change her eyes out because she has full round German Glass eyes and I didn't want to encourage THAT expense and risk of breakage.
We found another outfit and two more wigs for this one.
And this one really grabbed her heart!
Once she paid for this doll, she was handed him and she trotted off down the isle hugging him
As the show neared the end, she just could not wait to get back to the hotel to play with all her new dolls and treasures.
I had given her a camera when we began our trip together and she wasted no time posing the dolls and snapping pictures.
She was thrilled to find this chair for her new girls for 50 cents.
The personal baby that I took along, Sophie silicone by Sandy Faber.
Jena and my friends granddaughter participated in my
Build a Baby/Create a Baby workshop and this is the baby that
We went across the street from the hotel to the thrift store and found
some clothing for her.
Jena took a bunch of pictures of dolls at the doll show. I have ordered prints for her and will
place them in a photo book and send to her.
I was fun seeing the show through her eyes and looking at the things that interested her.
Oh we had such a great time!!!!
