"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.

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.

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."

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!!!!!

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
Prima Dolly London
Prima Dolly Peony
Charlotte de Fleurs
Sprite (sometimes spelled Spright) Beauty
Prima Dolly Peach
My Little Candy
