Rainy Day Reflection

"The only time we can walk in the rain is when it's raining! Hurry, let's go before it stops."

Marina, my Playful Raindrops Blythe doll, is joined by one of the latest Sonny Angel releases--they all have a weather theme. This boy is Thunder.

Outdoor Play

Even though she loves to read, Maddie quickly tossed her book aside when her friend appeared at the window, asking if she could come outdoors to play.

That's Cool Pool Lemonade with the book, and Francoise Ananassa (named June) at the window. 

I've recently discovered that people have been using some of my photos without either having my permission or giving me credit for the photos, so I'm going to try to remember to "sign" my pictures when I edit them from now on. There's my name, right under Madie's leg.

Hey Froggie!

Can you tell me the way to the pool?

This is Maddie. She is Cool Pool Lemonade, and she joined my dolly family on Mother's Day. I already have her big sister, Cherry Beach Sunset. Since I have tickets for BlytheCon Brooklyn in October and the theme doll is "tanned girls", I'm thinking of bringing them both with me...if I actually go! (We'll see what happens.)

I made this photo is for the Blythe a Day group on Flickr; the theme is "frog."

New Artwork

Life imitates art.

My daughter Jenna, the artist, made this AMAZING little drawing for me for Mother's Day. She looked at Blythe pictures for inspiration, then did the drawing from her imagination, so it isn't supposed to be a particular doll. The background is filled in with an intricate tangle of leaves, vines, flowers, stars, and one little heart--this is her unique personal style that shows up in most of her drawings (you can see more of her work in her Etsy store, JennaAndersenArtShop.)  I love it so much!!!!!

Pink Hair

I recently posted a picture of my blue-haired Blythes; today I am pleased to present my pink-haired girls. I've added their stock name abbreviation under each one, and just for clarity, I will write them out below. The abbreviations I used came from the app called "My Dolly Collection for Blythe"--I've noticed that different people sometimes use different abbreviations, which can be confusing. This app is the first thing I've found that conveniently lists every Neo Blythe (even the very newest, not yet released dolls!) in an easy-to-navigate app for my phone and iPad. It is a work in progress; future updates will allow you catalog your personal collection (I can't wait!) 

I've left out my peach-haired girls from this line-up...the difference between peach and pink can be quite subtle, so I understand that some people might classify them differently. I was going to include Dainty Biscuit, and I actually took a picture with her in the group, but she just didn't look right and I had to take her out--even though her hair is officially "pink". Another confusing moment came when I realized that Prima Dolly Peach has pink hair! That's her, second from the right. 

Here are their stock names, from left to right:

My Melody X Blythe--Softly Cuddle You and Me
Snowflake Sonata
Ichigo Heaven
Prima Dolly London
Prima Dolly Peony
Charlotte de Fleurs
Sprite (sometimes spelled Spright) Beauty 
Prima Dolly Peach
My Little Candy

It's Mother's Day in the USA today. My wish for every mother around the world is that you will have a day full of blessings and happiness!

It's amateur night at the Comedy Club. 

The comedian is Anastasia, my Stella Serendipitous Blythe doll.
