Playing with Dolls

While Katie's hobnobbing in NY, I'm here in Mississippi . . . where it's getting cold again with threats of more "snow" (i.e. a light dusting of frost on the ground which necessitates the closing of all schools and office buildings--but NOT bars or clothing stores, go figure!). Katie--you just might get stuck in NYC because planes can't land in the "snow" . . . bless your heart.

I've heard great reports from Katie. She's met her incredible agent (as well as mine!) and has lots of super-cool things scheduled. I'll wait and let her tell you everything when she gets back.
Meanwhile, I have discovered these lovely ladies which my favorite website, Go Fug Yourself, brought to my attention. View more of them here.


I'm now dying to go sew a bunch of dolls, paint their faces, do their hair, and dress them. We could have a mini Project Runway on my dining room table. I've already got the Tim Gunn bobblehead to offer words of encouragement during the design process.


What do you think, Katie? Are you and your girls in?? Or should we just throw a bunch of naked barbies out on the table and dress them? That would probably be easier . . .

I'll send you my daughter's old Barbies. Right now they're just laying naked on the bathroom floor. With Ken.

I'm not going to ask.

Ha ha!

I can't wait to hear about Katie's trip. Can. Not. Wait.

Those dolls are a little disturbing. I'm sure yours would be far less creepy! Ha ha. :-)

Tim Gunn bobble?! Beyond!

Can't wait to hear back from Katie--we are living vicariously through her.

I'm partial to the artsy doll photo you took of the decapitated Barbie discovered among your leaves. Still waiting for the photo exhibition!

Christina Lee said...

I too cannot wait to hear from Katie! All testorone here, no Barbies, so I'm in for dressing someone cute besides myself! :D

Those dolls are a little on the creepy side of dollishness.

Hope Katie has a great time.

Think she'll remember us when she's on Oprah?

Yes, those dolls are perfectly described as "beautifully creepy."
