It was a great day at the horse show for Joy and Maximus. They took first place!
See, I said I had to take more pictures with this wonderful cowboy hat! This Blythe doll is Unicorn Maiden. The trophy and ribbon are accessories for Our Generation dolls (sold at Target.)

Yee haw!! This Unicorn Maiden is going country!
About a month ago, when I knew that Unicorn Maiden (whom I named Joy) would soon be joining my collection of Blythe dolls, I decided to splurge on this gorgeous cowboy outfit with the idea that it would look great on my new pink haired girl. I've seen and admired it for quite a while--it's part of Darling Diva's stock (she was the 5th Anniversary doll in 2006, and she came with three complete outfits.) I ordered it from Mandarake, and by coincidence, it arrived on the same day as Unicorn Maiden! Look at the size of that box; it's even larger than the doll's box!
I LOVE THIS OUTFIT SO MUCH!!!
The jacket and skirt are made from soft pink suede. The back of the jacket is embroidered with horses to match the skirt, plus a heart and the name Blythe. The pink rose earrings came with the outfit. Isn't it great that Unicorn Maiden has pierced ears and can wear these earrings?
The kicker for me (pun intended) are the boots. Oh how I love the special boots Takara makes! I also love the cowboy hat (I wish I had included it in more of the pictures, but that gives me a reason to take MORE pictures!)
"Happy trails!" to everyone from Joy.

"I heard you were coming, so I baked a cake."
(Penny, my Cloud 9 Bowl, is the self-appointed head of the welcoming committee.)
Sarah Shades is here, and I love how colorful she is! Her bright, retro wardrobe really strikes a chord with me. She has two complete outfits, which is really awesome. The only thing she didn't come with was nice underwear...but I took care of that little problem right away!
Her hair was rather greasy and stringy when I took her out of the box, so I gave her a shampoo with Dawn Platinum dish soap, followed by a dunk in Downy fabric softener. Now her hair is curly and pretty.
I didn't notice it until I looked at the photo below, but her right eyeball is lower than her left one. Luckily, that sort of minor flaw doesn't bother me.
All in all, she is a lovely doll and I'm happy to have her in my collection.

This doll is "My Melody x Blythe Softly Cuddly You & Me"...whom I always refer to as simply My Melody or just Melody for obvious reasons! She is one of my very favorite Blythe dolls, perhaps my second favorite after Blythe Adores Anna Sui.
For this September calendar page, I started with a pretty scrap booking paper for the background. Melody's dusty-rose colored hair made her the perfect doll to pose with it, and I just happened to have this dress which picks up all the colors in the background...I especially like that it seems to blend into the background where the two touch.
This picture is intended to be used as wallpaper on a cell phone; feel free to use it if you like it. I use it on my lock screen (you can see how that looks in the second photo.) Just view this page on your phone, then tap the photo to save it. Then go to your phone settings and choose it as your wallpaper (I had to adjust the size slightly to make it fit on my screen, it's just a bit too big as it is.) It's a little gift from me to you, and I hope you enjoy it.

Here's a quick tip from Hannah: "When applying your makeup, use a good powder to remove that glaring shine. You'll be glad you did!"
She knows a lot about makeup, for a mermaid.
I made this picture for the theme "Kiss and Make Up" in the Blythe a Day group on Flickr...even though it's only the "makeup" part! I just got this very tiny and detailed Rement set and I needed to use it.
