Dreamy and Drama
Do you collect anything other than dolls?
Yes, I do. Before I started to collect Ball Jointed Dolls I collected paper dolls, paper serviettes, buttons, post cards, scraps, Cherished Teddies and pebbles. Today I collect Monster High Dolls, Willow tree angels, cute cars and pebbles. I still like the other things I collected, but I do not collect them anymore. 

Why did you start a doll blog?
For 10 years ago I started to blog in Swedish about my life, politics and other happenings that could catch my interest. I had many readers and it was a joy. I even had a blog in my native language, Finnish and one in English so that I could reach many with my thoughts. Those blogs do not exist anymore due to a new start I wanted to make. I wanted to focus on the things that mattered and there was a change going on in my life and in the graphic (pixels) sites I followed. Many left that hobby and I felt that there were no point in going on. So, I started a new Swedish blog - did some cleaning and then I decided to try to focus on my dolls on a doll blog. I wanted to connect with others out there with the same hobby and share my thoughts with. In a way I wanted to crush some bias, too.

Do you have one particular doll that is the favorite in your collection?
My first BJD Esther, a Narsha Girl - Basic Sleepy Narsha will always have a big place in my heart. 

A favorite?
Your favorite doll accessory?
No, not really. I try to find something when I take photos of the dolls. It can be a berry, a soft toy, another doll and so on. But the mini Lalaloopsy is rather cute in the photos when she tags along.

Do you know exactly how many dolls you have in your collection?
Yes, I have three.

Do you play any instruments and if so, what?
No, but we have a piano at home.

The cottage
Where is your most favorite place you've ever been?
I adore South Sweden. The ocean, the sea shore, the nature. And the lovely smell of all these things. We have a cottage here in Blekinge, near the town Karlskrona. The cottage is placed in the middle of the forest and it is so calm and relaxing to be here. 

What is your most favorite thing about yourself?
At the first glance I may seem dry and boring, but I know and those who live near me know too, that I am rather funny. One of my old class mates told me that my humour and my jokes are rather odd and crazy. Well, she said that I was a crazy girl, in a funny way. Jokes and comedy is a important part in my life, but so are even fantasy and a piece of drama. After being diagnosed with depression with anxiety, laughter is really important. Then I think that I am strong too. After going through the things I have in my life with surgeries, pain, betrayal and sorrow, I am amazed to be standing here and loving life as I do.

A good book
Favorite book or movie?
Book: Hearts in Atlantis, by Stephen King.
Movie: Gladiator, with Russell Crow as Maximus.

If you could design your own doll, what would it look like?
She would be a tiny and chubby elf, with a wild personality.

    1. Thanks! :) Doing tags like this Is fun and one can learn a lot about oneself and others. And telling something good about oneself is always hard! My doctor said that I'm going to be a better me when I'm done with the medicine....looking forward to that! :D
      Mini Lalaloopsies are so cute and work well as props. Would love to have a couple more. :D
