Welcome to the dollhouse
You know how hard I try to avoid forming new collections, finding new things to obsess about. If anything, my recent foray into reselling has been about shedding old collections, but sometimes...sometimes a certain something speaks to you so you buy it and then you see another something similar and think, "Ah, of course, I'll be having that as well," and then other people start noticing the array of similar items in your house and they make a mental note, "Next time I see a ______, I will have to pick one up for her!" And you know, it snowballs. And snowballs beget avalanches (of stuff, cascading out of your closets). Lately I've been noticing a lot of new faces around here—weird, wooden faces—but I'm reasonably certain that I do not—repeat, DO NOT—collect weird wooden dolls. Nope, not me.
