Spring Blooms

Spring Blooms

Brock amidst the daffodils.

I'm glad I read through the whole "Blythe a Day" list at the beginning of the month, because that was when my daffodils were blooming, and there are no other flowers in my I took this photo weeks ago in anticipation of today's theme.

Brock is my Chantilly Lace custom doll.

Our Favorite Hat(s)

Blythe a Day April 27, 2015
Favorite Hat

There is NO WAY these girls could decide on just one hat that is everyone's favorite. So they took a vote, and these 7 hats were the winners. When the Sonny Angels noticed what was going on, they insisted on being in the picture too, because, of course, they wear their favorite hats all the time.

Best Friends

Citrine and Heidi laugh when people ask them if they are twins. "We're not twins...we're not even sisters!" they say. "But we are best friends."

Something Beautiful

Here's something beautiful: my "grail" girls sitting on a handmade quilt!

That's Veronica Lace in the center; I love her long brown hair with purple threaded through it. She was the first doll I longed for but resisted buying because of her price. When I found her in gently used condition at a much better price, I snatched her up!

The other two are Miss Sally Rice. I loved her so much I bought her twice!

Oh--and I made the quilt!

Blythe a Day April 22, 2015

As I tried to think of a way to portray the word "peace" using Blythe, I decided to go with a very literal interpretation.

And, as I got ready to go outside, I asked myself "How am I going to carry 10 dolls at once?" This Longaberger basket is just perfect!

Still Life with Doll #1 (and #2)

Blythe a Day April 15 2015
Black and White

I love how this photo came out! Usually I try to make the dolls look like they are alive and involved in some activity; this time, the doll is clearly seen as a doll--what a concept! I hope to do many more still lifes, so I'm calling this one #1.

And, here's how the photo looked before PicMonkey helped me change it to black and white. I think I prefer this one...but the theme for the day was "black and white", so the first one is the "official" photo for today. So okay, I'm calling this one Still Life With Doll #2.

This is Eve (not Ellie!--I haven't made her a white dress yet, but I wanted white for this photo--and I wanted to use her, because of her black hair), my Milky Way Sugar Blythe doll.

It DID Go Out Like a Lamb!

Blythe a Day, April 2, 2015 Baby Animals

Citrine was sitting outside enjoying the spring weather when, much to her surprise, two little lambs came running to greet her! She wondered what they were doing there, but suddenly it dawned on her--March had just ended, and everyone knows that "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb."

Citrine is the Ice Rune Blythe doll I got at Christmas. This is the first time she's been out of her stock winter outfit--she is so happy about that!
