Welcome to Dollie Love! This blog is my outlet for discussing doll topics from how to get started in the doll hobby to where to find the cutest doll clothes. I do hope you enjoy it and find it useful. Currently I collect Reborn Dolls, customized Blythe dolls and as of Summer 2019, resin Ball-Jointed Dolls! Aside from my doll hobby, I’m a lover of Japanese street fashions and all things kawaii! I post weekly Youtube videos on my doll channel, DollieLovex3 and make frequent posts on Instagram @DollieLovex3. Check it out!
About The Collector
Hi! My name is Tamara. I’m a Graphic Designer and Illustrator living in Louisiana and I love dolls! I’ve been collecting reborn baby dolls since 2009, but my story begins as a little girl suffering with severe Asthma. A lot of childhood past times, like playing with teddy bears and cute furry pets were off limits for me and my Asthma. The only safe option for me were dolls (vinyl and fabric). Years later, my Asthma has improved and became easier to manage but my love for dolls has grown..just as I did!
