Portrait of Jane

Jane was in total shock when she saw the gift her sisters gave her: 
a life-size portrait of herself, painted by a famous artist, 
in honor of her one-year anniversary in the family.
Now THAT'S a gift!

This sweet Kenner Blythe did indeed come into my dolly family one year ago, on Christmas day. This year, my daughter Jenna painted her portrait for my Christmas gift! I love it!

The other two Blythes in this photo are Mod Molly, far left, and Sadie Sprinkle.

Beauty Sleep

Did you know that some of the most sophisticated
young women still sleep with stuffed animals? 

This is the very sophisticated Bridget, aka Allegra Champagne, enjoying her beauty sleep in bedding by Angie Coppi (Goodnight, Sweet Blythe on Facebook).

Alien Hunter

This is Ann. She is a certified Alien Hunter. 
So far, she hasn't spotted any aliens, 
but she HAS seen several UFO's, 
so really, it's just a matter of time...

Other people have named their UFO A Go Go Blythe dolls really appropriate things like Roswell or Luna. Since those fabulous names have already been taken, I decided to go with something simple and sensible. Ann.

UFO Has Landed

I've been waiting...and...waiting for UFO  A Go Go to arrive. It seemed as if everyone in the Blythe doll groups on Facebook had received her already, and I was getting impatient! Finally, today, the wait was over when the mailman rang the doorbell.

I love her! Look at that hair! The color is beautiful and it is really full and has lots of body. She comes with a lot of pieces of cute stock, too, which is great. My favorite pieces are the glasses and the boots. Oh, and can you see the tiny alien in one of the black squares on her dress? Cute!

First, I wanted to take this picture of her with everything as it came out of the box. In a day or two I will fix her up with all her accessories and take a few more pictures. I can't wait!

T'was the Night Before Christmas

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. 

My sweet little Petite Blythe dolls were the perfect models for this photo, because they close their eyes when they lie down. Thank you to Angie Coppi for the gift of this wonderful hand-made winter bedding set.

Good Habit

When Penelope gets up in the morning, 
the very first thing she does is to make her bed. 
Isn't that a good habit? 

Penelope is my Snowflake Sonata Blythe doll. Many thanks to Angie Coppi, who gifted me and my dolls with this beautiful winter-themed bedding set (throw, pillows, and sleep mask) that she made just for us.

Reindeer Games

Come on, everyone! 
Grab a reindeer and join in the fun!!

Grace is my Petit Dejeuner Champs Elysees Blythe doll. I love this big deer I found at World Market...I saw it and thought it would be the right size for a doll to ride, and I am happy to see that I was right!

Snowman Weather

Bonnie's snowman-making skills are at their best 
when she knows she has an audience. 

Bonnie is my Raspberry Sorbet Blythe doll. The little Blythe and her dog are from the Littlest Pet Shop series, called Cold Weather Cute.

Reindeer Encounter

In an amazing coincidence, 
Bonnie happened to have a carrot in her pocket 
on the very day she encountered a wild reindeer 
coming out of the woods. 

This is Bonnie, my Raspberry Sorbet Blythe doll. She was my very first one!

Holiday Wardrobe

In order to avoid stressing about what to wear 
to the many special get-togethers during the holidays, 
Beryl wisely organized all her ensembles in advance.

Feast Day

After putting together a makeshift shrine in the back yard, 
using household items and a pretty statue, 
Grace honors Our Lady of Guadalupe 
with a rose on her feast day.

Warm and Cozy

When it's cold outside, it's so cozy on the sofa by the fire.

This is April, my Nellie Nibbles Middie Blythe doll, holding a Lalaloopsy mini doll. The pretty throw and pillow were made by Angie Copie (Goodnight, Sweet Blythe on Facebook.)

Perfectly Matchy

This is Veronica, my Bow Wow Trad Blythe doll, modeling a new outfit for a friend. I'm so pleased with how pretty her face looks in this photo...and I know that sounds funny, because all Blythe dolls look somewhat similar, right? But sometimes I look at the face on one of them and I just swoon. I guess that's why I have approximately 5 million Blythes, and counting!
