Today I am going to have another photo session, so a quick post first. Did you know that we have not one, not even two, but THREE A Girl for All Time dolls Lydia? Lydia is just so adorable that each one of my daughters really wanted one so here they are. My daughters’ Lydias wearing original 18th century outfits by A Girl for All Time (designed by Thimbles and Acorns). The one in the riding outfit is my eldest daughters’ doll that she got from Father Christmas and the one on the right is my youngest daughter’s doll which she received for her recent birthday. My Lydia is still dressed in the modern outfit I made for her for her trip to Hong Kong in December. Isn’t it amazing how different all 3 dolls are? I am considering renaming at least mine for the sake of easier identification. I …read the rest
For the last month or so I have been thoroughly obsessed with the Outlander series – first, the 2014 TV series, then the books. I am currently reading the 2nd one in the series – out of the present 8. But, thankfully, more are to come for it is one …read the rest
Once I determined who my Jamie and Claire Fraser would be, it was time to jump into action. Iplehouse EID Leonard on Superhero body is to be Jamie while Iplehouse EID Carina is going to be Claire. Here are some pictures of the characters from the Outlander TV series 2014. Both …read the rest
Another game that Mattie and Tinka enjoyed together was the skipping rope. Mattie had never done it before, so Tinka decided to teach her how to do it. Hmm, this is tricky!
Continuing with the photos from last summer. Tinka and Mattie loved playing outside. And one of the games they enjoyed was this good old favourite of everyone!
Another small set of last summer’s photos. It’s Mattie (A Girl for All Time Matilda) this time. She is wearing a Poppy top which is actually meant for Maru & friends dolls, but Mattie insisted on trying it on!
I keep on slowly sorting out a pile of photographs from my summer holidays and here is a bunch of photos of Michelle (Kidz’n’Cats Galina). The top and the corduroy trousers were made by my mum.
It took me about 4 years to finally decide to get this doll. I was very curious about yet another “Girl” from a particular country (like American Girl, Australian Girl, etc.). This is a Canadian Girl. And I am really glad I finally took the plunge for she is truly …read the rest
Update 01/02/2015. A change of plans has happened. Having just madly fallen in love with the whole Outlander thing (the TV series and the books) I have finally decided the destiny of Leonard (and Carina, to that matter). He is now called Jamie Fraser and he is indeed from the 18th …read the rest
I have finally got around to showing this girl though I’ve had her for 2 or 3 months already! I have another Australian Girl in my collection, and here is my review of her. I may repeat myself, however, when I talk about this new beauty. So, this is Emily, …read the rest
I have recently changed my Zlata’s wig. (Zlata is a Dianna Effner doll, painted by Geri Uribe) Not sure why I wanted to do it, but I love the new look! The dress was knitted by me quite some time ago from Becky Colvin’s pattern.
And some more photos of Bonnie & Pearl dolls – of my Florence (Olivia) this time. This dress was made by mum for my daughter’s American Girl doll, but it fits Florence well, too.
I haven’t shown my Tris (Bonnie & Pearl doll Beatrice) for a while. I’ve recently taken some photos of her in a dress that I’d made for my new American Girl doll. Not many, but here they are.
This is another outfit made by my mum. I have another set of photos involving this dress on a different doll which I took in the summer while on holidays, but I’ll show it some time later. This set is called Summer Breeze. It looks best on Kidz’n’Cats dolls (modelled …read the rest
So, Hong Kong Disneyland! We spent 2 full days there (well, at the least the children enjoyed themselves!), but Lydia went there only on the first day. Opera House on the square next to the entrance. We didn’t go inside. A magnificent Christmas tree on the same square! The main …read the rest
Our next destination in Hong Kong was Disneyland (for the sake of our children, of course!)! We stayed for 2 nights in the fabulous Disneyland Hotel and it is so magnificent that it deserves to be shown separately! The Disneyland Hotel is built in a Victorian style and has lots Victorian …read the rest
Our second day in Hong Kong was just as exciting as the first one. We decided to go on a double-decker sightseeing bus and also to make a short boat trip to Kowloon (for the sake of a beautiful view of Hong Kong island from there!). The Central Pier and …read the rest
A few days before Christmas I took my daughters and Florence (Bonnie & Pearl doll) out to the main shopping street of Singapore – Orchard Road – to enjoy the Christmas decorations and take lots of photographs. In Singapore Christmas decorations usually go down on 2 January and are immediately …read the rest
My four girls – Laura (Gotz doll Laura), Marianna (Kidz’n’Cats doll Tara), Catherine (MAG #49) and Florence (Bonnie & Pearl doll Olivia) – also decorated the Christmas tree, a very special one I got just for them! Laura and Marianna Florence Marianna Florence Catherine Laura and Marianna And the whole …read the rest
Christmas is approaching and it was time to hang up those Christmas stockings! Laura (Gotz doll Laura), Marianna (Kidz’n’Cats doll Tara), Catherine (MAG #49) and Florence (Bonnie & Pearl doll Olivia) were very keen to do it!
