Card Sharp

Blythe a Day on Flickr 1/31/16

Alice: the cutest--and possibly the most annoying--card sharp, ever.
 "Read 'em and weep, ladies, because I've got a royal flush!"

I actually Googled the terms "card sharp" and "card shark" because I have heard both, but I didn't know if one was right and one was wrong. It turns out that both are correct, with "shark" being used more in the USA, and "sharp" being more commonly used in the UK.  Even though I'm American, I liked the sound of "sharp" better, so that's what I went with!

This doll is Alice, my Simply Sparkly Spark.

Even if their tiny voices can't be heard inside the house, their body language makes their wishes perfectly transparent.

Early Morning

Favorite Time of Day

Stella's favorite time of day is early in the morning, before anyone else is awake. She can sit quietly and focus her thoughts, and prepare for the day ahead.

Chocolate Brown

Blythe a Day on Flickr 1/27/16

I've never been a fan of the color brown.  I must admit though, that there are lots of  brown things that I chocolate. And tanned Blythes!

This is my first tanned girl, Cherry Beach Sunset. I call her Gidget.

Middie Family Photo

Family Photo

At Christmas I took a photo of my large Blythe Neo family...but I didn't include the Middies. Today it's their turn! Here they are, my six smallest Blythe girls.
Do they have names? You bet they do! Sadly, I don't keep track of them very well! I REALLY intend to get organized on Flickr and give each one her own album, labelled with her name...someday...

Which Came First?

Blythe a Day on Flickr 1/22/15

Merry ponders the age-old question: "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?"

Merry is my Prima Dolly Marigold Blythe doll. I made this dress to go with the egg hairclip I got from MissDoolittles on Etsy. Merry seems to be the only doll who can pull off this look though; I tried this outfit on several other girls, but it just didn't look as good on them as it does on Merry--her hair is just the perfect color for it!

Hair Care

Hair Care

You can trust the Sonny Angels for all your hair care needs
...said no one, ever. Penelope probably should have asked around before checking into their "salon".  This isn't going to end well.

Penelope is my Snowflake Sonata Blythe doll.

Cut it Out  

Eve doesn't mind cutting out paper dolls for her sister whenever Brie asks, because she lives by the motto, "no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted."

Somewhere in the Appalachian mountains, a pair of musical sisters practice their act and dream of being discovered.

They are Petite Dejeuner and Raspberry Sorbet. I found their amazingly detailed instruments at Yankee Candle--they are Christmas tree ornaments!

Did you know that dolls dream in color?

This is my customized doll, Brock. I chose her for this photo because she is one of only three of my dolls who has sleep eyes.

The Gigantic Shoe

Blythe a Day on Flickr, 1/9/16

Spying a gigantic shoe on the shore, the girls decided it must really be a canoe, not a shoe--because giants don't really exist, right?--and they set off upon the water, having never been in a boat before.

I have several Middie Blythe dolls, but I don't keep track of them very well! These girls are probably named April and Kitty.

Animal Lover

Blythe a Day on Flickr, 1/5/16
What's On Your Head?

Merry would like you to know that four hats are warmer than one--and animal hats are the warmest of all!

This is one of those photos that took on a life of it's own as I was trying to do something for today's theme, "What's On Your Head". I had the idea to do a tall stack of hats, but random hats weren't working well...then I noticed all the animal hats, and I also noticed my Sonny Angels with animal hats/heads/whatever, so this turned into a photo that is more about animals than about what is on her head!
