1. K*the Kruse Adventskalender - advent calendar

This year I have a lovely surprise for you, all my dear blogger-friends! An old K*the Kruse advent calendar from the 50s, with a cute little doll scene every day... (klick on the pics to enlarge them - the details are so neat & well done!)

 
So stay tuned and don´t miss it!
I wish you all a wonderful christmas time, yours Nicola

Neuer Schnitt Puppenheft - Doll´s fashion

One of the maaaany doll´s fashion magazines of my collection, I really adore!
It shows all the Schildkröt Puppen (turtle mark dolls) I know from my childhood and also the fashion I wore when I was small (in the 60s).

Invitation for the doll´s wedding!!!

 

Little fashion designer of tomorrow with the small singer for children - I says: I sew all myself for my favourite doll on my Singer sewing machine!


We are the big ones! These big dolls (50 - 60 cm) were very popular in the 60s - I don´t know why??

Schildkröt Schlummerle - My favourite turtle mark doll!
My dolls are celebrating carnival with me!

Besides taking a short glimpse in this lovely vintage doll´s fashion magazine I´m totally involved with taking pictures, writing descriptions, setting items in the shops and also sewing for my two online shops "Püppilottchen" and "RetroPueppi" - less time for hobbies and so all the Lundby houses are covered with dust again and all the BJD dolls are waiting for new clothes...

Have a nice pre-christmas time, yours Nicola

Petra Wohnhaus, 70er Jahre - The Petra house from the 70s

Recently I found this kind of dollshouse on a fleamarket and because of the nice price it took it with me and wanted to put it into my Dawanda-Shop...


Petra was the german equivalent of the well known Barbie doll. You can deflate the inflatable furnitures and can fold the house up to put all the things together in the flat cardbox. These kind of inflatable play things were very populare in my 70s childhood. Plastic-fantastic and dazzling colours that´s what I grew up with!



But... all the time I looked at it I thought: "It´s to cool to give it away..." Awww - look at these typical 70s details printed at the walls!! I´m sure I´ll make one of these pillows with traffic signs in dollhouse size someday! I´m a kind of hoarder as you surely all know and can´t part from things I like (even if I don´t know why ;D )



And there is one fact you also can´t ignore - it´s way to big for Lundby dolls and I don´t have any Barbie to fit in. (And I´ll never get one!!)


So time past by and the house slept its deep sleep...


until I fell into my BJD-love and ordered the Secretdoll, picture doll, Person 15! She has the perfect size (19 cm) and I guess it will be fun to let her "live" in this house :)


So the moral of this story is: Always keep things which are to cool to give them away ;D

Edit: Unfortunately the Secretdoll Persons are to small... Now I hope that it will be the right size for my incoming Blythe clone & future Blythes ... We will see :)



Have a nice weekend, yours Nicola

Hum, what´s up here??

... nothing ;D Sorry, I haven´t been here for so long! Since the end of spring I felt a bit unsatisfied with my blogger-being. I felt a bit under pressure that I have to show more Lundby houses, furniture, more Caco dolls... aso! And if something pressures me it´s no fun anymore. And I also wasn´t in the mood to make more pictures of things you´ve seen before, too. So, what to do? I looked through my pictures to seek something I could show you and that´s what I found:


It´s me in 2004 at the studio at the Käthe Kruse company, where I worked for as a fashion designer for the dolls, surrounded by all the dolls I dressed up.


One things led to another. I felt I have to do more "hobby things" which encourage what I studied and what satisfies me like nothing else: designing & making clothes, making fashion  for dolls :)! I don´ t know how could I forget?!


And so here we are. It´s me making cute doll´s fashion again and also discovering a new and very interesting hobby, too - Asian ball-jointed dolls - BJDs.


Does it mean you will not see any Lundby anymore :O NO, but you will also see more LaTi dolls & dolls fashion here :)


I hope you don´t mind these changes - but that´s me ;D I´ m an Aries and these persons are spontaneous, enthusiastic and always open for new experiences... So, stay tuned it´s going on here :)

Hugs, yours, Nicola

All my happy tiny things...

Recently I found myself standing in front of my typecase again - starring on it for hours ;D I really adore all these tiny things! They make me so happy and looking at them makes me kind of relaxed, too!!


A mix of things from the flea market, my granny´s treasure chest, leftovers from my childhood and my children´s childhood...


Tiny things made by these fantastic wood carvers of the "Ore mountains" and stuff from the "kinder" surprice egg...


Do you have a typecase, too - And what´s inside?

Have a nice weekend, yours Nicola
