Sexy Dolls,Corsets & Pretty Dishes..

Taking a break today from "CUTE".. awhile back I had bought my daughter some 'Silkstone Barbies' in fancy gift boxes complete with lingerie and a outfit they were fabulous !Even I wanted to play with them!!

Thought maybe I would get her another one for Easter.. so went to my favorite shopping place online.. eBay.. geez, these ultra sexy dolls kept popping up ..to me it's their "FACES' that draw you in .. I was intrigued! Tried bidding on this beauty ..but didn't win her..hope to try another time.. she reminds me of my daughter..

These dolls are so chic and look at that corset! sort of a Preppy with a edge..

Omg! that face is so glamorous.. move over Barbie ,you have competition! well, I went on Yahoo and did a search here is the website if you want to be dazzled > http://www.fashionroyalty.com/


Not your conservative fashion dress-up dolly..but soo fun..they have rather dramatic bio's and cool clothes ..and did I mention the FACES! duh..


Glamourous and there's that corset again...oh-la-la!!




Really nothing has changed much ...


Another Doll I bid on and.... LOST!


Just love those old doll bodies...beautiful...which brings me to my next subject..

Corsets..they are everywhere [and on alot of blogs too.].. go check out 'Calamity Kim's' blog > http://www.calamitykim.typepad.com/ she was at a store called 'The Cats Meow' and there they were 'Corsets'.. so fashion, home decor and the dollies you play with...I even saw corset cookies somewhere.. so where's mine?!


Isn't this a beauty!? The color is fabulous!!

Old paper doll in her corset..

Many doll artist [including myself ] have made dolls in corsets, there is just a appeal of the shape and form and something more.. A Nicol Sayre reproduction in a little red corset..> http://www.nicolsayre.typepad.com/
Dreamy vintage ladies in their pretty corsets...

So sexy and demure at the same time..
I know this really isn't a corset ..but what a pretty doll in her ballet costume ..sort of like a corset..at the turn of the century they even had training corsets for young girls..

Even found this quaint bedroom decorated in what else?! Corsets and girdles.. Take a peek at the Pink Cottage blog > http://www.pinkcottage.blogspot.com/ hmmm.. I like it.. but my husband would be rolling his eyes..



Eleagant corset gown.. never out of fashion..and all that yummie netting doesn't hurt either..

I have this pattern somewhere...sooo pretty..

A antique cotton doll corset..

A woman's ideal form... a Divine image ...we all hope to be? and many of us need the help of a Angel to get into one!
The corset crosses all fashion catagories..

This beauty looks like a piece of sculptural Art was on 'Curious Sofa' > http://www.curioussofa.blogspot.com/

'Glam Goth Gown'..say that 3 times fast!! Find these at > http://www.fairygothmother.com/

This was dare I say 'CUTE?! Ruffles, polka dots,cool shoes and a corset..sorta a 'Shabby Chic-Goth-Glam'.. ha!
I rambled on enough about corsets.. will do some more on them another time, as have oodles of corset pictures new and vintage..


How about these glasses for those crafty girls who love Glitter?! Found them on > http://www.roomservicehome.com/


Still on my quest for some 'New Dinnerware' these look great on the wall ..but, Man! Every time you wanna eat you have to pull them off the wall!! Nope, won't work for me..these are 'Room Service 'dishes..
More dishes from 'Room Service', more to my liking. .green or blue, nature theme...but the pitches are white! Should be a brown bark.. so pass...but the layouts were so pretty..
love the little bird nest ...
These are 'Rosie B. Farmer' dinnerware ,'too fem' for my husband to eat off everyday..She use to do clothes... I have a bunch of her dusters, and jumpers in cabbage roses and toile's...'Rosie' make more clothes!!

These pretty dishes below are not for eating off of, just to hang on the wall ..made of a paper composite and at Room Service > http://www.roomservicehome.com/

So still looking ...will be nice to get out and see some 'real dishes' ...been cooped up here at home too long. Time to go some where!


Getting antsy for Spring..I love 'Bleeding Hearts' and have them all over the yard..but has anyone ever seen 'silk Bleeding hearts' and where I can buy some??!!

Greetings... Certainly did enjoy viewing the corsets... loved the bedroom with girdles, etc.! What a Hoot! I know this is a bit late, but, did you ever find your silk bleeding hearts? I found some online, but I have not shopped where I found them. At any rate, the site looked very nice... here is the link to their bleeding hearts (they look awesome) http://www.fioribelli.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ItemNo=1265 Hope that helps some... Take care! Respectfully... Pearl
