The Dolls Product Lines Series


As a reader of my Linda's Blog and The Dollie Storage Room Blog you are probably well aware that my dollies have always had minds of their own. That might even be an understatement. They have strong wills and strong points of view. When they want something they WANT it.

Now you might say, "So what! They're just dolls!" While that is true they do have a distinct advantage over me in sheer numbers. There are literally thousands of them in the "Dollie Storage Room."

It's my own fault.  I, simply, have made way too many dolls over the years. That's neither here nor there now. The fact is there are a lot of them. And, when they want something - well, THEY WANT IT! They're just so demanding.


Years ago when they demanded that they be allowed to have a 'Dollie Fashion Show Series" which I had to give in to. They loved their fashion shows and this has kept them quiet for quite some time.

While it's been quiet I knew it would just be a matter of time before they told me - or demanded something else.

Well, it seems the "dollies" had gotten together recently and decided they wanted a "The Dolls Product Lines Series."  Over the years many of the dolls have not only had e-patterns and handmade dolls made, but have graphics that have been used to create custom fabric lines, handmade goods lines, and products on demand lines.

In thinking about this new demand I had to agree with them.  That would be a good idea.

I know, I know... shock of shocks.  I agree with the dollies.  Just don't tell them....

Dollie Storage Room Participants


The Dollie Storage Room Participants So Far

The "dollies" have so many stories to tell and so many fun things for you to do. They thought it might be easier for you to follow along with their adventures if you knew who they were and what they looked like. According to the dollies; "It's always better to put a face with a name!" So, shown below are pictures of the dollies who have been involved in some of the stories so far. If you want to read the stories each of the "dollies" is involved in just click on their name under our "The Dollie Storage Room" blog categories box.

Baptist Loves His Smile and Jael Loves Her Smile



Everyone loves Baptist.  If you'd like to read all the stories "Baptist Loves His Smile" is involved in just CLICK HERE.

The "Dollie" Fashion Shows

As a reader of my Linda's Blog and The Dollie Storage Room Blog you are probably well aware that my dollies have minds of their own. Maybe that's even an understatement. They have strong wills and strong points of view.

Plus, they have a distinct advantage over me in sheer numbers. There are literally thousands of them in the "Dollie Storage Room."

Yes, I know - my creative juices have gotten the better of me in the last few years. I, simply, have made way too many dolls. That's neither here nor there now. The fact is there are a lot of them. And, when they want something - well, THEY WANT IT! They're just so demanding.

The other day I heard rumbling and knew right away that it was coming from "The Dollie Storage Room."The "dollies" were up to something and making a lot of noise. I could only wonder what that was all about. So, what do they want now?

For sure, I knew it would just be a matter of time before they told me - or demanded something.

Well, it seems the "dollies" had gotten together and decided that 4 years was long enough to wait. They wanted to put on another "Dollie Fashion Show."  The last one was in 2006 and this was 2010!

This time they decided they wouldn't even ask me if that was "okay." My opinion, I guess, no longer matters. They wanted to do this, and so they will. Since ours is a democratic household, they out number me 1,000 to 1, there wasn't much I was going to be able to do. Even if my vote were to count double or triple or more, they'd still far out number me.

A little while later I got a message that "Doris Marie" wanted to see me. Whenever the dollies want to smooth things over with me they always sent "Doris Marie."

Dollie Jigsaw Puzzles


The"dollies" just LOVE to play especially if they're doing jigsaw puzzles. They love creating their own jigsaw puzzles on their "It's Raining Doll Parties Products Gallery" and their alpaca jigsaw puzzles on their "Alpaca Rock Products Gallery."  They are always bugging Linda to create a new one so they can buy it.

Here's what Linda and the "dollies" have created so far:

You're All Invited To The Dollie's Spooky Halloween Party 


There's been a lot of chatter coming from The Dollie Storage Room lately. Dolls have been coming and going at all times of the day and night. There's been a lot of banging and moving of furniture. And, of course there's been a lot of laughter and gaiety for days on end now.

We weren't concerned until we heard the screaming. That we weren't too sure of, but the dollies assured us that everything was fine. We're pretty sure what's going on. It's October and that means the "dollies" favorite holiday will be here soon - HALLOWEEN.

And, for the dollies that means "PARTY TIME!"

They do love to party. And, at Halloween party they do. That is - until the house starts shaking.

Then, hubby, puts his foot down. Or lets say he tries to put his foot down. When the "dollies" get going they don't listen to anyone. Well, maybe someone - ME!!!!

When they get out of hand and get a little too exuberant I have to gently remind them that I may be old, but since I put them together I can still take them apart. For them that's tantamount to a death sentence. So, they pay attention and calm down just a bit. At least the house stops shaking.

So, get ready.  It's IT'S SPOOKY TIME

You're All invited! So, come on - let's party!

You're All Invited To The "Dollie" Winter Adventure

It's hard to believe it's Winter already. I may not be ready for snow but the "dollies" are. They just love the snow and snowball fights, snowmen, snowflakes, and making snow angels.

They also like winter vacations. Last year they all went skiing. This year they decided to go on a winter adventure and thought it would be fun to invite you all to come along. Have fun with the "dollies."

You're All Invited To The Dollie House Of Horrors

The Dollie House of Horrors

Pretty soon the month of October will be here and that means the "dollies" favorite holiday will be here - HALLOWEEN.  Now you might be wondering why the "dollies" love Halloween so much.

Well, they get to have a little fun.  You see, it's the one and only time of the year that I let them party.  And, party they do.

That is - until the house starts shaking.

Then, hubby, puts his foot down.  Or lets say he tries to put his foot down.  When the "dollies" get going they don't listen to anyone.  Well, maybe someone - ME!!!!

When they get out of hand and get a little too exuberant I have to gently remind them that since I put them together I can take them apart.  For them that's tantamount to a death sentence. So, they pay attention and calm down just a bit.  At least the house stops shaking.

So, get ready.  It's THE DOLLIE HOUSE OF HORRORS.

You're All invited! So, come on - let's party!

The Dollie Pumpkin Patch

Pretty soon the leaves will be falling, the wind will be blowing, and there will be a crispness to the air. Time for pumpkin scented candles and fireplaces burning. Time for jumping into piles of leaves.

But, most of all - time for THE DOLLIE PUMPKIN PATCH.

You're All invited! So, come on - let's go!

Welcome To The Dollies Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and the "dollies" are already preparing for their feast. They just LOVE the Thanksgiving holiday when everyone gets together for a wonderful feast. There are football games to watch and play, laughter abounds, and, of course - there's shopping. And, we all know how much the "dollies" love to shop. Shop til you drop is their motto!

However, given that Thanksgiving is also a time to reflect and give thanks for all we have they truly believe that we should never loose sight of what Thanksgiving started out as - which is a time to "Give Thanks" for ones blessings.

Enough said - "Let's eat!" You're all invited. Enjoy the show.

Dollie "Stories" - Life In The Dollie Storage Room


“Life In The Walsh Household” can be very interesting and challenging at times!

Now, you might be wondering why that is?

Well, if you think living with a bunch of women is difficult try living with over 1,796 dolls. Suffice it to say, it can be downright hazardous at times. Especially given that they all live in “The Dollie Storage Room” which is above our garage.

Plus, add to the mix that we have all kinds of dolls: little boys, little girls, men, women, snow-ladies, snowmen, Victorians, primitives, colonial dolls, country dolls, scarecrows, witches, bunnies, babies, angels, Santa’s, Mrs. Claus, bears, dogs, cats, bee’s, ewe’s, woodland dolls, moose, reindeer, pumpkins, ornies, ornaments, horses, clowns, raggedy Anne’s, raggedy Andy’s, Dracula’s, leprechaun’s gingerbread men, gingerbread women, turkey’s, carolers, Jack Frost, brides, graduation dolls, Uncle Sam’s, flower dolls, Frankenstein’s, ghosts, and pilgrims.

We even have a a chef and a bunch of “Olde Gray-Haired Biddies.” Life in the Walsh Household and “The Dollie Storage Room” can get very interesting and challenging, indeed!

Now I know what you're thinking right now.  How can living with a bunch of inanimate objects be interesting and challenging?

Well, because every one of the dolls has an ego bigger than a house and every one of the dolls thinks they are “human” and that they should be afforded the same rights as any other member of the Walsh household. At least that’s what they told me in their “The Dollie Demand’s” letter. I have yet to respond.

In fact, the "dollies" don't even consider inanimate to be a word - certainly not in their vocabulary.

So, life in our household can be very interesting indeed and certainly has been over the past few years. Interesting, tiring, boring, loving, inspirational, fun, hectic, crazy, and downright hazardous - at least to hubby's and my health.

If you'd like to see what I mean I have written many, many stories about life in "The Dollie Storage Room" over the past few years on my Linda's Blog and Dollie Storage Room Blog that should give you an idea of what it's like to live with the "dollies."

Uncle Warren, A True Patriot! Primitive Uncle Sam Doll E-Pattern and Handmade Primitive Doll



"Uncle Warren" truly is a true red, white, and blue patriot. He loves his country and, even now, at the age of 82 is still willing to serve his country. If they need him to serve, he'll be ready. Of course, at his age he can't fight, but he can still serve. Paperwork, no problem. Cooking for the GI's, no problem. Cleaning the mess hall, no problem. Encouragement and moral, no problem. Uncle Warren is ready and able to serve.

Uncle Warren, A True Patriot! loves his country. He is a self-sitting Primitive Uncle Sam doll with a cloth body and drawn face. He sports a long beard, moustache, and white hair. He is wearing a shirt with long cuffed sleeves, lined vest, and long cuffed pants. His patriotic stove pipe hat is lined and rests on his head. His right arm is saluting and he is holding a flag in his left hand. His boots are adorned with bows.
