I met Kristi Stovin about 8 years ago via an on line doll group and we have corresponded for years on doll related topics on and off--mostly me trying to get tips on how she makes the incredible dolls shoes she makes :) (she is known as the Crissy Cobbler) about three years ago we started talking much more often and really became fast friends, Kristi even stopped by to visit me when she took a vacation in Hawaii a couple of years ago between sightseeing and cage diving with sharks (!) Kristi is someone I really admire, her work is gorgeous and inspired and She's my BFF :) So she was my obvious pick for my first "Interview With a Doll Collector" post. I want to make this a regular feature on my blog and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy showcasing talented and amazing doll collectors.

Prize 1--Tom Tierney's Great Fashion Designs of the Seventies Paper dolls, Brand New has two gorgeous models and thirty iconic 70's outfits. The outfits include those by designers Bill Blass, Mary Quant, YSL, Dior, Chloe, Laura Ashley, on and on... I have one of these from each decade--I them use as design reference books. If you have never seen Tom Tierney's paper dolls-they are very high quality-not just amazing artwork but printed on very heavy, high quality paper.
|All of the outfits have the name of the designer and year underneath-I accidently cut that off in the photos.|
Prize 2--Book "The Lonely Doll" by Dare Wright - This is one of the Edith and the Bears books and the mother of all doll diorama photos :0) The Lonely doll is actually Dare Wright's first Edith book written and photographed in 1957. Edith is such a darling doll and Dare Wright such an interesting woman. This is a brand new soft bound version. This book is a super adorable story and has great ideas for doll photography too.
|Sorry for the poor photos--bad light and the book kept closing :) but there are photos on every page.|
