Kym’s Kraft Ko (Unit No 1)

A small number of units have opened in a shopping mall, one of which is rented by Kym and she has named it “Kym’s Kraft Ko”.

Kym is quick to point out that it isn’t a ‘craft’ store (spelled with a C) but rather somewhere to find what you weren’t looking for…  She likes all things eclectic and her store is a typical example.

One customer, Keiko,  even shared her taste and they have agreed to meet up for coffee and to discuss Kym’s latest finds for her store.

Vita Richards at Work

Vita has been working for a well known news agency for a while now, and because she has done so well the CEO (who is a personal friend of her family) has asked her to look after his newest team.

She makes appointments, rings up leads, types up articles, proof reads, looks after expenses, checks other magazines & newspapers for interesting stories and as such has the title of ‘PA’ (Personal Assistant).

The team she looks after consists of Tarah, Connie and Gia, and since she started to help out it seems that all three have reason to be out of the office for the biggest part of each day.  Vita doesn’t mind that at all because she can get on with things without any distractions.

Vita has a ‘thing’ about eye glasses, the way some girls have a ‘thing’ about shoes.  She has no idea how many she owns but it is probably twenty or thirty pairs.

She also has a ‘thing’ for wigs and likes how they make her feel anonymous, like a different person whenever she feels the need.

Doll Room

My doll room used to be very organised with boxed Barbie doll & friends lining the walls from floor to ceiling.  Undressed dolls, or dolls waiting for TLC , are stored in a chest of drawers and two wardrobes.

When the larger dolls started to arrive it was fine, they slotted in amongst the Barbie dolls, but I soon began to run out of space and I now have no room left other than a narrow walkway.

The doll room doesn’t have all of the doll boxes, backdrops, accessories and items for dioramas, they are filling up another room.  This photograph should embarrass me into thinning down my collection…

Horsman Urban Vita in the buff

Vita is my introduction to Horsman dolls and she arrived today.  I’m not sure yet how and where she fits in with my other ladies but we did a photoshoot today, to see how she poses.
