While looking for a quote to go with this photo, I learned a little about this poet: "Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson, FRS (6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892) was Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during much of Queen Victoria's reign and remains one of the most popular British poets." (From Wikipedia.)

Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.
This is Milky Way Sugar (I call her Eve) posing for the theme "Leopard Sass." I was shocked to discover that my Blythe dolls don't have any item of clothing with a leopard print! Luckily I found this interesting piece of fabric in my sewing room, which just happens to have a picture of a leopard on it.
Eve is wearing the stock outfit from Mondrian, which was recently gifted to me, along with a lot of other Blythe clothes, by a sweet dolly friend. Thanks again, Susan!

Walking home after the carnival, they both agreed that it was the best one they had ever attended.
I love Candy Carnival's blue hair so much, I bought her twice--once NRFB, and once used with no stock. Between the two of them they are showing off almost all of her stock items (I realized after I took the picture that this is the wrong basket--it should be round and white--and neither of them is wearing the white ankle socks. She also has some very nice undergarments.) The cotton candy was a swap gift, and I added the wubba chikens just for fun. I think it's funny that she comes with one stock outfit, but there are three things to wear on her head: the straw hat, the "carnival" headband, and a pair of green and white hair bows.

My name is Bonnie, but my friends call me Lucky. See why?
She is Raspberry Sorbet, wearing Country Summer's stock dress, for the theme "Country Summer" in the Blythe a Day group on Flickr. The inspiration for this picture came when I found this four-leaf clover in the yard...I quickly got Bonnie dressed and we went out on the back porch...I took several shots of her, and then called it quits because it was HOT out there. When I looked at the pictures on the computer, I was sorry to see that none of them showed the clover in it's true glory; you can just barely make our the fourth leaf above Bonnie's hand.

"Color is the place where our brain and the universe meet."
Mrs. Retro Mama really has no choice: with hair like sunshine, yellow MUST be her favorite color! This picture is for the theme "All Gold in One," which is why she is wearing Goldie's jumpsuit. I started by looking for gold accessories to go with the theme, but I quickly realized that the jumpsuit is really more yellow than gold, which dictated my choice of doll and props.
