ABC Wednesday: "K" Is For...


I've written before about my doll collecting mania, and also about my travel doll. Kayla is a member of the Barbie family and as she's a rather tiny doll (about 3 inches tall), she fits nicely inside a purse or a pocket or a suitcase – so she's perfect for taking along on excursions. She never changes outfits, so she acquires a sort of "Where's Waldo" effect in all her photos. But she's game for just about anything. She's been to the beach and the mountains, and to big cities like New York and Chicago. Since she came to live with me, she's never been out of the USA; although I suspect she originated in China or Japan. Generally, she lives in a display case in our dining room, but she does love an occasional outdoor romp. Here she is at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, enjoying some chips and salsa on a sidewalk table.

  7. Never knew about Kayla! Nice info...In the Indian language - Hindi, Kayla sounds like Khela? which means "Did you play?"

  8. Kayla is so cute! Love the photos!
    Nice post for K.
    I am also a lover of dolls. I'll let you know if I post something about my dolls. Ironically, I haven't had time for them since I had the children. They have replaced my dolls!
    Best wishes,

    It is Sara, my cat who posted about K this time. Please visit her post here:
