Check the Forecast

As soon as she walked outside, Jane regretted her decision to wear a dress on a windy day.

Jane is my Kenner Blythe doll.

Love the Beach

Gidget spends every possible minute at the beach, because she knows summer won't last forever.

Hello, Sunshine!

I didn't get the new Blythe doll, Pineapple Princess, because she is very similar to Cherry Beach Sunset, which I do have. But in the past few days, so many people on Facebook have been posting pictures of their new Pineapple Princess that it makes me wish I'd grabbed her when the pre-orders were open! Rather than obsess about what I don't have, though, I've decided to focus on what I DO have: my pretty Cherry Beach Sunset, Gidget.

Everyone is beautiful. 

This is my beautiful UFO A Go Go Blythe doll. I love this dress on her, and I just found out it is a Skipper dress from the 70's. When I bought my Kenner, the seller also sent this dress (and several others).

Picnic Time

Our favorite kind of weather is picnic weather!

Cousin Olivia, Ice Rune, and Nellie Nibbles get ready for their picnic. This is one of those pictures where the placement of the dolls, plus the camera angle, resulted in the girl in the back looking much smaller than the same-sized girl in the front.

Cecilia Said Red

When she was asked her favorite color, it came as no surprise that Cecilia said, "Red".

Cecilia is my Cinema Princess Blythe doll. I've twisted her hair up onto the back of her head (and held it in place with many hair clips). She is wearing the stock dress from Love Mission.

Pictures in the Clouds

When they had eaten all the picnic food they could manage, the girls relaxed on the quilt and looked for pictures in the clouds. 

These Blythes are Lady Camellia (Neo), Cool Pool Lemonade (Middie), and a Littlest Pet Shop Blythe doll.

Happy Birthday!

I've made quite a few birthday photos since I started photographing Blythe. I like to post them on my friends' Facebook pages on their birthday, and I don't want to use the same picture all the time! Today's theme in the Blythe a Day group on Flickr is, indeed, Happy Birthday, because it is the birthday of the group's host. Happy birthday, Penelope!

This is Paisley, my Mandy Cotton Candy Blythe doll.

Blythe Rainbow

For quite some time, I've wanted to redo this picture of a line of rainbow-hued Blythes. I use this picture not only here on my blog, but also as the header for my Etsy shop and on my business cards. When the theme "rainbow" appeared in the Blythe a Day group on flickr this month, I knew the time had come to finally do it!

The picture below may look similar to the one at the top of my blog, but there are two main differences: all the dolls in this new picture are completely stock (because I realized that I prefer the stock Blythes, and that is now the focus of my collection), and their outfits and stands better reflect the rainbow theme. Also, I have become a better photographer and photo editor since the first picture! This new one is brighter and just overall BETTER than the first! I took care to arrange their hair,  arms and legs, and to line them up more carefully than I did the first time. I've come to see how important little details are, like making sure their hair is out of their face, and they are looking at the camera.

My Blythe collection has grown quite a bit since I took the first picture, so I was able to use a different doll for every color...except orange. Cloud 9 Bowl is so perfect for that little slice of the rainbow that she had to make a repeat appearance.

Here are their stock names, from left to right:

Cinema Princess
Cloud 9 Bowl
Mrs. Retro Mama
Prima Dolly Amaryllis
Simply Sparkly Spark
Curly Blue Babe
Prima Dolly Violet

True Love

It's okay for a girl to indulge in her love of chocolate once in a while, isn't it? 

This is Charlotte de Fleurs. I call her Fleur (because I already had a girl named Charlotte--my Precocious Candy's Mushroom--when I got her.)

Wednesday, July 5, 2017


When the girls heard that today is Dolly Day (marking the birth of Dolly the Sheep, the first mammal successfully cloned from an adult somatic cell), they all rushed to their closets to find something appropriate to wear.

Calliope (Can Can Cat), London (Prima Dolly London), and Promise (Little Milk Heart).

Hooray for the Red, White, and Blue

Happy Independence Day, America!

Daphne (Candy Carnival), Charlotte (Precocious Candy's Mushroom), and Waverly (also Candy Carnival) show their patriotic side. I think I need to get a white-haired girl for next year's photo!
