I'm heading out of town for a week to help my mother with some things, and I will keep thinking of this picture while I am gone, because I am anxious! I don't like to travel, and I don't like to be away from my home, husband, and I will remind myself repeatedly to be like Pretty Peony, and relax!

Reality TV

Next time on Survivor: 

I really like my new Pretty Peony! She seems to look good in anything. Today she is posing as a castaway in one of my favorite TV shows, "Survivor." This photo is for the theme "Reality TV" in the Blythe a Day group on Flickr.

Marina says: "To look and feel your best, drink lots of water every day!"

This is Playful Raindrops wearing her stock dress, posing for the theme "water" in the Blythe a Day group on Flickr. I have been a bit lacking in inspiration recently, so I used this simple formula that always works for me: 1 doll + 1 background + 1 prop = a nice, easy picture. The background is a page out of a magazine.

Saving Winter

They didn't want to say goodbye to winter or to Frosty, who was truly an outstanding snowman. So they saved his head (the only part of him that would fit in the refrigerator), turned the temperature all the way down, and hoped for the best. 

Vera Florentine and Nellie Nibbles are the actresses in today's little drama.

Small is Beautiful

As Dr. Seuss said: "A person's a person, no matter how small."

These are my Petite Blythe dolls Ivanka Corneille and Connie Corneille, wearing their stock outfits. I love how tiny they are! My only worry is that their shoes will fall off and be lost forever because they are almost microscopic!!

The Cat Collector

Ruth never intended to have a cat just happened.

This is Pretty Peony, wearing a dress I made. My daughter painted the two funny individual cat portraits for me when I asked for pieces that were small and brightly colored. The amazing cat banner came to me in a craft swap when I was active on a few years ago. My swap partner is an artist, obviously...she asked for pictures of my four cats, and she painted a cartoon portrait of each one. Her name is Kira Nichols, and if you would like to see more of her work, you can find her blog HERE.

Style Report

"One is never over- or underdressed with a little black dress."  
                                                          --Karl Lagerfeld

This is Allegra Champagne, wearing her stock dress and hair bow. The purse is a Hallmark ornament, and the shoes are from Barbie (I think.) For the theme "Little Black Dress" in the Blythe a Day group on Flickr.
