Me and My Space - Odd and Funny!

Howdy - Now I have talked about some of the items that I am selling for the estate. I have done lots of research for an entire era of toys and dolls that I normally did not deal it. We have really learned a lot and grown a new appreciation for the value of these "modern" toys. Well modern compared to what we normally deal with.

So last Sunday we were at the flea market and I went into a booth and found a Madame Alexander Doll. Sounds basic and normal right? A little new for what I would usually slow down and look at. But I have come to realize that these dolls are very collectible as well and finding them and getting them into the hands of collectors is fun too. But this Madame Alexander doll... well she was like brand new condition, had her accessories and honestly she just really made me laugh out loud, she is a bit odd and funny and I had to find out how much she was. 

Yep.. she is a Madame Alexander "Psycho" doll with her claw foot tub/shower and curtain. Her skimpy little towel even reads Bates Motel! One side of the curtain as you can see has the Movie title. Then the other side of the curtain... yep... look close!!! That is Norman Bates in his mothers clothes!! Is that a Scream or what!! LOL  She ended up being a pretty good price so I purchased her and came home and listed her for sale right away.  She still cracks me up... She was part of a "Thriller" Series that Madame Alexander started. Only two were ever released. Now the second doll. I really want that one! "Birds".... love that movie, need to find that doll for a grin too!

Now this next doll I have listed is from the estate and to me is very odd.  But you have to appreciate the talent and complex parts to put it together. This is more of an ART doll. The man who made it is no longer alive. But he was an extremely talented man. William "Bill" Wiley -

You can read all the history and info about it in my auction post MERMAN . But a few notable things - A few really impressive things - Bill created more than 60 of the characters in the movie Nutcracker, including the Nutcracker! He did windows at Tiffanys - oh I could go on and on. And this doll was one of the first - really rare item, maybe too rare? I hope not.. he is odd. But really extremely well made. The porcelain is gorgeous and high quality. Just odd... LOL I think I said that. OH .. this guy is big too. He weighs over 5 pounds! BIG MERMAN!

Some fun stuff this week.. huh? I even listed a few post cards that are kind of odd and funny...

This one really is both... odd and funny

Giant Blow Fished dressed in a suit walking through the park filled with miniature children. Yep.. Odd and Funny!

Hope you have a great Sunday! And I really hope this weeks Me and My Space gave you a giggle, a grin, a chuckle... or just found it interesting.

HUGS and-
