Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem

Paisley was surprised and disappointed to learn that her favorite Latin phrase, "Carpe Diem", actually has nothing to do with seizing a carp--or any other kind of fish, for that matter!

The Amazingly Rare Sparkly Red Wubba Chikin!

Blythe a Day June 16, 2015
What's In Your Pocket?

Heather reached into her pocket and pulled out the strangest thing: an extremely rare, sparkly, red, wubba chikin! Bok bok!

I received this wubba chikin in a swap, so I don't know who made it or where it came from. But I do know that I love it! Yes, I made this dress with the mustache pocket. Silly, right?

Hearts are my favorite symbol, so it's no surprise that they appear in my dolls' wardrobe and accessories, not just for Valentine's Day, but all year round.

Penelope always has to remind herself that there is NO SUCH THING as monsters underneath the bed.

Penelope is my Snowflake Sonata Blythe doll. The bed is from Good Dolly By Golly on Etsy.  I bought it unfinished and painted it myself.  The monster is an altered matchbox I made, which was inspired by the "Monster Book of Monsters" from the Harry Potter books.

Wedding Cake Disaster Averted

Blythe a Day June 10, 2015

I am a BIG fan of candy...and my dolls take after me!

This theme gave me lots of ideas, so I ended up with two photos. When choosing the dolls for my models, I was hoping to use one or more of them who have "candy" in their name (Candy Carnival, My Little Candy, Precocious Candy Mushroom, or Mandy Cotton Candy).  However, none of them have bright pink hair, and that's what I wanted to go with this background, and this dress with candy on the skirt. So it's Prima Dolly London (London) in the first picture, and Ichigo Heaven (Ellie) in the second picture, who did the honors.

Happy Birthday

Blythe a Day June 9, 2015

Charity decided it was high time we had a party around here! Who cares if it isn't anyone's birthday--we'll have one big party for everyone! Happy Birthday to all my Blythe girls!

Charity is my Mod Molly Blythe doll. I happen to be the host for the Blythe a Day group on Flickr this month, and I chose this theme today because I like to have a good birthday photo to post on my dolly friends' Facebook walls on their special day--and I don't like using the same old pictures all the time! So here's a new one! Yay!

Promise loves to sunbathe on the beach, and she sneaks away to do it as often as she can. She always brings a school book with her, so her sisters can't accuse her of wasting her time...but what they don't know is that she never opens the book!

I've photographed a "rainbow" of  my dolls before, so to make this picture a bit different, I've included some other little dollies. The cubbyhole shelves are new; my husband bought them for me for my birthday. They are the perfect size to display my Sonny Angels and mini Lala Loopsies.
