Previous Entry | Next Entry

The weather was cold but the lighting was good today. I decided to dig up two more Takara Jenny friends to share. As I stated in my previous entry, Marine and Naomi used to be more prominent in my collection. I don't know if it's because I find them too common now, or because I've fallen out of love with fantasy color hair, but over the past few years I've sold so many of my dolls that I only have one Marine and one Naomi left. Here are their stories:

This is the first Limited Edition Brown Box Marine. I bought her some time in 1999. Her blond hair is quite poufy, but I think her coloring (cobalt blue eyes and orange lips) is the prettiest of the Marines I've seen. I think it might be the same as the original topknot Marine's, but I'm not sure.

She has huge hair and a huge head! I'm not a big fan of Marine any more (because of her huge head) but I still like this doll at lot. Sometimes I wonder if I should get the repro topknot Marine available on the Castle Country site instead, but I don't want to hurt Limited Edition Marine's feelings...=_=

Over the past ten years, I've owned Supermodel Naomi, Sommelier Naomi, a Castle Naomi with short silver hair and one with dark blond braids. I ended up selling all of them but Sommelier Naomi. I still think she's the most beautiful Naomi ever created:

I love the makeup and hairstyle on this doll. She's pretty old and has some flyaway hairs in the back of her braid. Other than that, I still think she's perfect. ^_^

I can't see myself buying any more Marines or Naomis. I think it's because they don't show different eye colors off as well as a doll like Julia or Annie. Especially Naomi! You practically have to squint to tell that she has purple eyes in this photo.

Some people feel really sad when they have to give away or sell things they have owned. It is hard for me to when I don't like to keep anything I would not use ever again. My friends in the old country used to believe I was very nice about it, that was my pick after you spread the same joy you had about one thing to another person

I think that when you realize that your piles of accumulated belongings are threatening to devour you, it's time to start selling or giving away! :O It's hard to pay attention to the things you love when you're overwhelmed with a large amount of things you only like a little bit. If you get rid of the things you don't care about, you have more room and time to enjoy what you genuinely like.

Plus, no one likes a cluttered house....
