Fashion Doll Forum

Hi Everyone!

I am so happy to have been allowed to join this group. I discovered the world of Tonner Dolls about two and a half years ago and have been obsessed with them ever since. I have always loved to sew and love photography and now my love for these dolls brings all my interest together. I lost my dear husband from pancreatic cancer a little over a year ago. We were best friends and soul mates for over 35 years. I find that the dolls are a pleasant distraction for me now as I learn to get on with my life. It's nice to belong to a group like this where I can be myself and not have others whispering...she plays with dolls! I am among others here who understand! I look forward to making new friends and sharing my doll fashions and photos with all of you!

  • Hi Bonita, welcome to the group! I'm sorry for your loss and glad that your dolls are helping you through this tough time. I think creative hobbies are fantastic. I understand what you mean about the whispering, I collect dolls and model horses. Lot's of people whisper about me but I figure they must be jealous because I am having more fun than they are!

  • Hi Bonnie! Welcome to the club. I'm very sorry about your loss... I'm going through a similar situation with my mother in law as she has bone cancer. But here you can find a place of joy and happiness that will certainly make you smile.
