Forget Kevin Bacon, It's all about Angela

Ok... you know how the world is all super connected? Well, here's how my morning web-browsing progressed:

First I clicked on a blog post from "Two Straight Lines"

Then I saw an adorable doll wearing cute costume - Bamboletta.

So I wondered if the company makes boy dolls - would the Mogrunt like a boy doll? (His mom sure would.)

I decided to have a look at the Bamboletta website - Oh, it's based in British Columbia!

I browsed through some pages and discovered that they have an Etsy shop.

So, I signed into my Etsy to add them to my favourites.

Then I searched Bamboletta on Etsy.

Hmmm... there's a familiar name among the list of people making clothes for Bamboletta dolls.

I clicked on the familiar name.

That's when I laughed my arse off.

Why?

1. I have met the proprietor of the Silly Con Etsy shop (she used to live here in NS.)

2. Regular readers of this blog might recognize the designer of the graphic at the top of Silly Con's Etsy page.

(Note: they do have boy dolls but that they are all sold out of dolls right now - I'm considering placing custom order...)

  1. Those dolls are lovely. I want something like that for Doodle's first birthday. I've always regretted not getting The Boy a boy doll. Mind you, he has so many "troops", as he calls his stuffed animals, that I really didn't want to add to his collection!

  2. It really is a rather unpopulated country! Ha!

  3. Thank you for showing us this website -- I am IN LOVE with these dolls, and wish i had kids so I could justify having one made! They are gorgeous! The mermaids are beutiful and I love the Gnomes too (the dolls themselves are sweet too, but I am definately drawn to the fantasy ones the most).

    I thnk they would be a wonderful gift for a little boy -- awww so cute!

  4. I have a plastic boy doll that both Iliana and Corbin have enjoyed.

    Those dolls are beautiful. I'd go ahead with ordering one for the mogrunt. Everybody needs a little someone to love.

  6. That's so funny! I saw a Bamboletta doll at the Nurtured store and fell in love! (They do have boy dolls for sale there too.)

    I was coveting the girl doll they had at the store. It has dirty blond hair, a knitted sweater and a cute green dress. It almost looked like I envision Ella looking in a couple years. I have been thinking about it ever since. Now I know what the dolls are called! Thank you. :) And I might have to save up and get it for myself... ahem... I mean Ella... lol.
