Because the weather was so nice, the little girls moved their Sweet Shop doll house outside to play.
These are two of my Middie Blythe dolls. I need to get more organized about remembering the names I gave them, because I can't recall them right now! Anyway, the girl on the left is Francoise Ananassa, and the girl on the right is Puchippu Chappu Pepa.
Kat NEVER expected to see her face on the cover of a book!
Using Snapfish, I put together this book for my mom, to help her understand who Blythe is and what I'm doing in my Etsy shop. My mom hasn't seen Blythe in person yet, and she doesn't use a computer, so I thought this would be a good way to explain it all to her. Each page has one or two of my photos, with a descriptive caption...so it's very visual and easy to read and fun to flip through.
Collette has worked all week to make this string of paper cranes to give to her friend for her birthday. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish...so, Collette's wish is that her friend will have a year full of health and prosperity.
Many thanks to Sara Ricer who actually folded all those tiny cranes. She gave us this garland as part of a swap gift--isn't that awesome?
Blythe a Day July 18, 2015
There's Something On Your Face
At the same moment, Hope and Claire noticed a ladybug crawling on Lanie's face, and moved to swat it off. Silly girls! Neither of them realized they each had something much stranger on their own faces!
These girls are Hope (Simply Peppermint), Lanie (My Little Candy), and Claire (I Love You It's True).
As soon as I got My Little Candy, the name Candy just seemed right for her, and I've called her that ever since...until this photo. I happen to love this dress on her, but it has an "L" on the heart (my pink haired girl Prima Dolly London--whom I call "London"--usually wears it). I decided the only thing to do was to give Candy a new name, starting with "L", so Lanie it is!
We never forget where we live, with this sign on display in our family room! I appreciate things that have an "old" look to them, like this sign, but I LOVE things that are bright and shiny, like Blythe!
Who are they? From left to right: Prima Dolly Violet, Prima Dolly Amaryllis, Prima Dolly Peony, Mandy Cotton Candy, Snowflake Sonata, and Ice Rune.
I love bright colors, and I love making color-themed Blythe photos. I'm glad I thought to include the ball of yarn I used to make the dress, because when I was arranging it in the photo I noticed that the loose yarn seemed to be spelling something...
Collette is a girly girl whose favorite things are ribbons and bows. She's just back from a shopping trip and she is so excited about these purchases: a big purple bow for her hair, and a pretty pair of panties with a bow embroidered on them!
Ooh, Lila! I don't think it's such a great idea to put that big frog in your sister's bed while she is sleeping!
I bought this wonderful doll bed, and the mattress and sheet set, from Good Dolly By Golly on Etsy. Jenni's work is great, I highly recommend her! This small doll is a Yellow Marshmallow Middie Blythe doll. That's her sister Mandy Cotton Candy in the bed.
