I put up Christmas lights over my bed again to use as winter night lights. But this year I installed hooks to hold them. Needless to say, the drilling and hammering of hooks made numerous Barbies and other dolls leap headlong off the shelf and into my bed below. So, once the construction stopped I had to lift them back up into place. But there were new places for old residents and new residents to fill old places.
Most of the Minions now occupy new spots where they are less likely to dive off the edge. Their little unposeable feet don’t balance very well, so it is helpful to put them where they are held back from suicide a bit by Barbie legs and other Minions. Frankie Stein from Monster High joined the guitar-girl Barbie next to Stacy dolls and My Little Pony Fluttershy.
Esmeralda is a Goodwill-rescue Disney doll that joined the shelf near bare-chested Ballerina Barbie, also a Goodwell rescue doll. I haven’t figured out how to keep Ballerina Barbie’s bazzoom-ohs covered by the buttonless jacket she wears.
The third and final picture shows the remaining shelf leapers back on the shelf with Cat-Burglar Barbie added where she’s never been before. My Little Pony Applejack decided she was too tired for upright just before the picture was taken. Oh, well, leaping off shelves really takes it out of you.
I know there is more to show of the Barbie shelf, but it will have to be saved for another day. All the leapers came from the East end where all the hammering happened.
