One day in the first few days of our stay in the Lake District the weather was simply gorgeous so we went for a walk near the Buttermere lake. We didn’t make it far (I am not really much of a walker, and especially not when I have 6 and 8 years old children in […]
In August 2016 I spent a week in the Lake District, and my A Girl for All Time Clementine travelled with me. Only 1.5 years later, I am finally getting close to sorting those photos, so here is the first batch of Clem going on a steam train!
Last week I released a new knitting pattern – to make a cable cardigan with embroidery for A Girl for All Time dolls. The cardigan also fits Sasha dolls but I will adjust it a bit (the sleeves need to be a bit different to fit Sasha dolls better) and will release a pattern for […]

I have been very quiet this summer. That was because I did quite a lot of travelling. Here are some quick sneak peeks. And I will eventually show all of the photos I took separately. This was the first trip – to Cornwall, the Poldark country where I took my Ross and Demelza Poldark. This […]
Some time ago I received my very first Prince Stephan doll by Carpatina. While I don’t have much time to write a full review of him yet, here are a few photos of him in a company of A Girl for All Time girls who all think she is perfect for them!! (They might start […]
I have just found some more old photographs which I have never shown! This was the very first cardigan I knitted as an adult. That was 8 years ago and I knitted it for my daughter’s first doll – Emma by Carpatina. It was 3 years before I started collecting dolls myself! These photos were […]
Tinka has got a new cardigan which was knitted by my mum. She also got new corduroy trousers. And she went for a walk around a lake in my home town. She clearly enjoyed herself, don’t you think? A couple of bonus photos of the views that Tinka enjoyed! The Russian Orthodox Church of Saint John […]
Last Saturday night we said goodbye to Singapore, place I called home for the last 13 years 5 months and 11 days. At the moment all of my dolls are stuck in a hot container on the way to our new destination. I am having a holiday for now and I will be showing some […]
This ensemble was actually custom orders from two different people but it looks so great as one set! The outfit is modelled by my Lizzie. The dress closes at the back with a zipper as usual. There is a white cotton sash that can be worn in a few different ways (or not worn at […]
Another set of photos I took last summer while I was on a holiday in my home town. And another outfit made by my mum! Tinka lives with my mum and works as her model, so I take lots of her photos when I have a chance! I love this Rainbow cardigan and a matching […]
And yet another outfit for Gemma. It started with the cardigan that my mum had knitted. Then I made another pair of trousers and a blouse to match. The blouse is lined and closes at the back with 4 snaps. The trousers are a simple dressy style without pockets. They close with a button.
Recently I had a photo session for my Etsy shop and I also took a group photos of my models which I find quite interesting. The models here are Maru & friends dolls Jamie and Savannah, Kidz’n’Cats doll Galina, A Girl for All Time dolls Matilda and Amelia and gotz doll Hannah Rockstar. Aren’t they […]
Another recent outfit for Maru and friends dolls. This time it’s a cardigan which was also knitted by my mum. She used thin cotton yarn and 1.5 mm knitting needles. The cardigan has a ribbon embroidery. The trousers are just a raw test version (that is the first trousers I have made for these dolls […]
This summer Matilda got to model quite a few new outfits knitted by my mum. Here is the first of them – a cardigan knitted from woolen yarn with hand embroidery. You might remember a similar cardigan my mum made for my daughter’s American Girl doll last year. So, here is the A Girl for […]
Our American Girl doll Daniella is showing off a lovely white cardigan my mum knitted for her. The blue corduroy trousers were made by me. I took these photographs last summer while I was on holidays back home. This is my home town, not far from Moscow.
This Model Village of Woodstock can be found in the Blenheim Palace. It was created by an Arthur Dunston in 1954 and it shows Park Street from the entrance to Blenheim Park to the Town Hall Market Place. The Model Village was donated to the Blenheim Estate in 1992 and at the moment it is […]
Blenheim Palace is a beautiful palace near Oxford which belongs to the Dukes of Marlborough and it is also a place where Winston Churchill was born. Anika spent the whole day exploring it. She first went on a little train with a steam engine which took her to a wonderful model village (I will show […]
My mum made this set for my daughter’s Tonner doll. It started with a cardigan which my daughter wanted for her Alice, but my mum has created the whole mix-and-match set: two tops, a skirt, a pair of trousers and a cardigan. I had fun taking pictures of our two identical Alice dolls! The one […]

She had knitted an absolutely gorgeous cardigan for my Kidz’n’Cats doll Rowena!! When I received it, it left me speechless! Lovely gift wrapping, tiny little stitches, beautiful embroidery. The whole cardigan is just amazing!! […]
