She's Funny That Way

Blythe a Day March 31, 2015 She's Funny That Way

Meet Quinn Ashlyn Baylee Fallon Tatum Aria. She goes by a different name every day, depending on her mood--she's funny that way.  To help her friends know what to call her on a given day, she wears her name embroidered right onto her dress. She's thoughtful that way.

This is Candy, my My Little Candy Blythe doll. And no, those dresses aren't all hers! They were a custom order.

New Curtains

Blythe-a-Day March 30, 2015 Plaid

Stella is trying to choose fabric for window curtains.

"Everyone knows plaid is the best pattern, but these all seem to clash with the wallpaper. I guess it's time for new wallpaper!"

Stella is my newest girl. She came for my birthday two weeks ago, and when I noticed that her stock outfit is perfect for this theme, there was no question about which girl would star in this photo! She is a Stella Savannah Blythe doll (I may rename her later, if I can come up with something she likes.)

Fly a Kite

Blythe-a-Day March 29, 2015 Kite

Calliope is a fantastic babysitter. First, she made kites for the neighbor boys and herself; then, she took the boys to the park. Before flying the kites, however, she sat them down to tell them the most important rule: "Whatever happens, don't let go of the string!"

Calliope is my Can Can Cat Blythe doll. I love her blue hair! The little boys are called Sonny Angel dolls; these two were a gift from my daughter for my birthday--aren't they cute?? They come in a "blind box" so you don't know which one you will get (they all have different headgear.) I made the kites out of scrapbook paper.

Caffeine Addiction

Blythe-a-Day March 27, 2015 Caffeine

Merry makes no secret of her caffeine addiction. She has decorated her house in a "coffee" theme, and she even has a living, breathing pet coffee bean from Brazil! Yes, pet coffee beans are quite rare and expensive; but for Merry, money is no object when pursuing her obsession.

Merry is my Prima Dolly Marigold Blythe doll. The artwork above the table is an ATC made by my friend Susan (her blog is HERE). The idea for the coffee bean plushie came from Susan too; she just really loves coffee!

Blythe-a-Day March 26, 2015 Green

If this picture looks familiar, it's because I did a similar set-up a couple of weeks ago for the color blue. That turned out to be a great photo (you can see it HERE). It was even included in Flickr's "Explore", and received over 11,000 views!! I felt famous! So who can blame me for trying to repeat my success?

The girl at the top is Beryl, my Enchanted Petal Blythe doll. The girl at the bottom is Brock, a custom by Chantilly Lace.

Blythe-a-Day March 16, 2015 Limerick

On a beautiful morning in spring
Heather thought it would be a good thing
To walk in the park
Where she met with a lark
And a charming duet they did sing!

(In this illustration, the part of the lark will be played by a cardinal...because I don't have a lark, and I couldn't make "cardinal" rhyme with anything!)

Heather is my Prima Dolly Violet (2006, SBL)

Enough said.

Land Line Phone

Blythe-a-Day March 10, 2015 Land Line Phone

Jubilee found an old-fashioned telephone in her grandmother's attic; holding it makes her feel that she has stepped back in time.

I love the contrast between the bright-colored Jubilee and the monotone background.

Jubilee is my Simply Thumpty Thump Blythe doll.

Beryl is my Enchanted Petal Blythe doll (2007, SBL). She's another one who came at Christmas and is still wearing her stock outfit! But I like it so much she may continue wearing it for a while longer.

Anna Hears a Who

Blythe-a-Day Marych 2, 2015 Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!!

Anna is my Curly Blue Babe Blythe Doll (2014, RBL+).  I was so excited about her when I purchased her, but when she came, I didn't love her--her hair is a bit thin, and her lips seemed too red. But when I put this dress on her, the lips suddenly make sense! I like her much better now.

Lion or Lamb?

Blythe-a-Day March 1, 2015 Lion or Lamb?

When she went outside today, Citrine wondered why there was a lion in the yard. Then she remembered: it's March first! As the saying goes, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." (She's looking forward to seeing the lamb, too.)

Citrine has been wearing her stock Ice Rune outfit since I got her for Christmas! It's a good thing that Spring is nearly here; she needs to change her clothes!
