Crowning Glory

You're not really a princess until you have a crown.

This is Juliette, my Sadie Sprinkles Blythe doll. Thank you to Alisa Workman, who made the beautiful crown...and gave it away, to us, in the group "Blythe Pay it Forward" on Facebook!

According to Gidget, life is just a bowl of cherries!
Yesterday, my sweet husband brought me a big bag of beautiful cherries--my favorite fruit! My first thought was that I needed to take a dolly picture some of with them before I ate them. Yes, I am doll obsessed!
Perhaps you noticed the cherry theme in this photo? Cherry Beach Sunset, wearing a cherry dress, hair bow and boots, sitting beside a bowl of cherries.

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Sailing

Although she seems perfectly mature to her friends at school, London secretly makes paper boats that she likes to sail in her bathtub.

She is Prima Dolly London.

This is one of those themes that I wasn't sure what to do with at first. I got the idea for the paper boat from a discussion on Facebook about making newspaper hats for Blythe, and someone mentioned also making paper boats. Aha! A place to start with this theme, "sailing". Then I considered setting up an outdoor scene, indoors, with fabric for the water and several dolls sailing their boats...but I thought it might be too complicated to make it look believeable in the photo.  So then I stopped thinking about it while I learned to make paper boats. They are really easy and so fun! And the best part is, before you finish the boat, you actually have a paper hat in your hand! Then it turns into a boat! I learned so much today! Hooray for learning new things! Here's a link to the Wikihow page that will walk you through it, if you would like to make one too:  The boat can be any size you want, you just have to use a bigger or smaller piece of paper; so I thought about a tiny boat that a doll could sail in a bowl of water, or a washtub, or a...BATHTUB! Hey, I have a dolly bathtub!! This is going to be great! (And I think it is!)

It's surprising how much time and effort it is to try to put together a good photo. For that reason, I am going to take a break from the daily pictures for a while; I'm behind on my sewing and need to get caught up! I will take pictures when inspiration strikes, and maybe I will get back to one-a-day next month.

Head to Toe

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Head to Toe

Heidi's skin is so fair, she has to protect it by covering herself from head to toe every time she goes outside, even in the middle of summer. "I do get a bit hot wearing long sleeves all year round, but that's just the price I pay for beauty!"

This is Cousin Olivia.

Nature is Amazing

Even the smallest things in nature are amazing.

I wasn't inspired by the Blythe a Day theme on Flickr today (it was the '80's song "Mickey"), so I took the opportunity to do some free-styling! I had wanted to use a dandelion puff for the theme "wishing" last week, but there weren't any left after the rain. When I saw this perfect one by the driveway this morning I knew just what to do with it! (This is Simply Bubble Boom.)

Make a Wish

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Wishing

If you could have one Blythe wish, what would it be?

I would wish to find someone's Blythe collection for sale at a thrift shop at bargain basement prices! Then I would keep some and sell the rest, also at bargain prices, to spread the joy.
