My doll obsession began many years ago when I started ordering some lovely porcelain ones for my house in the foothills.  I went a little bit overboard, but brought most of them to my condo in 2007.  I added more to the collection.

Then I stashed a few of them away in bins in my garage…and most of them did not come with me to the residential senior living place in 2019.  While there, however, I started trying to find a doll I really missed…and the mini-versions of that doll (above) became stand-ins for the larger Madeline doll (below).

While searching for this doll, I started collecting “soft dolls” that took up less space.  Paisley and Pippa, below, launched that collection:

Then Payton was added:


Finally I found my Original Big Madeline! Happily, she sits atop one of my bookshelves


That’s it for now!  Not that I won’t start another collection, however, since my new apartment has more space.  Do you obsess about (or collect) things, other than books?
