Even Dolls Have Jobs

Yesterday was Chesapeake Doll Clubs annual MLK Jr. Day luncheon. This year's theme was "Even Dolls Have Jobs".

Licca, as usual, was my travel doll. She wore her Sushi Go-Round uniform in honor of the theme.

The program and club display was on nurse dolls and the history of nurse uniforms.

There was an impressive amount of dolls in the competition. 

 Antique Dolls with Jobs

Modern Dolls with Jobs

Female Fashion Dolls with Jobs

A Licca doll of mine wearing a "Burger Kitchen" uniform won first place.

Dolls from Movies or TV with Jobs

My Edward Scissorhands won a second place ribbon.

Fictional Characters from Books with Jobs

And Dolls Dressed by Owner

I even won two Helper drawings.

First a Kestner Baby Hilda (not a reproduction),

And then a Marsha M. Clark doll, whose name is Jonathan. I tried looking up information on Marsha Clark dolls, but couldn't find any information on-line last night. Her face is very interesting.

It was a very enjoyable day.

Chelsea the Cat

The only doll gift I received this Christmas, is a cute and cuddly knit cat doll by Cuddle + Kind.

Meet Chelsea the Cat, 13" of cuddly adorableness.

The dolls are hand knit by Fair Trade workers in Peru, and each purchase provides 10 meals for the hungry around the world.

The dolls come in two sizes, 13" and 20", and in 35 different styles (animals, mermaids, etc.).

It was an extremely thoughtful gift and I cherish it.
