Gratitude


The secret to happiness: be thankful for what you have.



I'm thankful for this Ichigo Heaven Blythe doll!

Custom Order


These custom-order panties were a challenge! They are all characters from Studio Ghibli movies: soot sprites, Totoro, and Jiji cat. I posted this picture on my Facebook for my doll clothes (Blythe Happy) and it's gotten MUCH more attention than my posts usually do--I guess a lot of Blythe collectors love these movies!

Strawberry Question



This is the most recent Sonny Angel to join my collection--and he is my favorite! I love his pink strawberry head and his matching pink cheeks. He is just plain cute!

When I started thinking about it, I wondered, why did they make his strawberry head pink, instead of red? Then I remembered that a while ago, I made the pink strawberry pincushion in this picture. Why? Because pink is pretty! So I guess that answers my question about the Sonny Angel.

Of course, I chose London (Prima Dolly London) to pose for this picture because of her pink hair. I made her dress several years ago, and it is almost perfect for this theme...although now I wish I had made that strawberry pink too!

Shine Like the Sun


Hoping everyone is having a bright, sunshiny day.



This is Prudence, my Ms. Retro Mama Blythe doll. She has been here for a few months, but I haven't had time to play with her until now. She has been wearing her stock red dress--heavy fabric, long sleeves, high neckline--and heavy yellow tights, and just looking at her made me feel hot and uncomfortable...so I made her this cheerful summer dress, and now she looks MUCH better!

Blythe Beauties


If this were a beauty contest, I wonder who would win? This original Kenner Blythe doll, released in 1972 on the left; or the latest 2016 Takara release, Allegra Champagne, on the right?

Little Black Dress


Here's Bridget, aka Allegra Champagne, in her stock black dress. She came with two pairs of shoes, isn't that awesome? This gold pair is my favorite; the other pair is solid black with a small heel and ankle strap (which I love, because those shoes don't fall off).

Where are you going, Bridget? Some sort of fancy charity event, or perhaps a televised awards ceremony? You look too fabulous to be doing anything ordinary!

Lady of the Ring

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Lord of the Rings


You've heard of Lord of the Rings. This is his Blythe counterpart:

 Bridget, the Lady of The Ring. 

...the golden pullring, that is!



This is Allegra Champagne, of course! The 15th Anniversary Blythe doll. She has a lovely pearly sheen to her face, and two-toned lips (the top lip is a darker pink than the bottom one). She comes with two complete outfits, including two pairs of shoes (the gold ones are especially nice, I will have to show those off another time, since you can't see them in this picture). Everything about her is fantastic!
