Continuing with the Poldark theme. As you know Truro – the town in Cornwall which is located close to Nampara and where Ross keeps going – was filmed in different places (because the real Truro doesn’t look like an 18th century town anymore). The harbour area was filmed in Charlestown. Here it is in the TV […]
I am starting showing long overdue photographs from my trip to Cornwall last summer! This is the first part (of 3 or 4). We started our holiday by trying to find real Nampara – Ross’s house. However, having driven in circles around Bodmin Moor (St Breward), we have failed to find the real place (which […]
I am back from our 2-week Scottish adventure. I have visited lots of amazing castles, fell in love with Edinburgh, even went ‘over the sea to Skye’! And, of course, visited quite a number of Outlander and North and South filming locations. Photos are coming soon. Here is the first one – Jamie and Claire coming […]
The dream of my life is about to come true – I am going to Scotland!! And, of course, I couldn’t go without dolls. Especially, since at least 2 of my favourite TV series have strong connections (and multiple locations!) with Scotland – North and South (2004) where Edinburgh played the part of fictional Milton, […]

Last year, as you might remember, I went to Cardiff to the Doctor Who Experience. I am extremely excited that we are going there again next month – to visit it before it closes down (which is a real – I mean, REAL!! – shame!). These are some photos from the last year’s visit. I […]

Today is Christmas Eve. And one of the things that come to my mind is this famous scene from Season 1 of Poldark. The scene where Demelza is asked to sing a song and she sings beautifully… I’d a pluck a fair rose for my love I’d a pluck a red rose blowin’ Love’s in […]

This week I released my first knitting pattern. More patterns are coming, of course. But for the moment here are some photos I took of the Highlands cowls modelled on different types of dolls – just to show how many dolls it actually fits! The pattern started with this cowl that I had knitted 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 […]
So, as I mentioned before, in April we had a lovely holiday break in Wales. Here are some of the photos I took there, despite the fact that I still haven’t had a chance to introduce this male doll properly. The Tenth Doctor is a customized Prince Stephan by Carpatina, and Rose Tyler is a […]
Another of my recent projects – the making of the main characters of the new TV series Poldark. I started with Demelza. She is Clementine by A Girl for All Time. I just changed her wig to be more like Demelza in the film. I was thinking of changing her eyes (to make them blue) […]
I have been insanely busy in the last month – with the end of the school year and preparations for the summer trips. So, although I haven’t posted anything for a while, I have quite a few sets of photos to show and also a number of outfits ready to be taken out for photo […]
Again, these photos were taken quite some time ago but I have never shown them. I love this doll so much that I thought I would dedicate this post to her in different dresses. This is Emma by Carpatina. The same doll was the very first doll that entered our house. This one was her […]
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 […]
Another dress crocheted by my friend. I called the dress “Sunshine”. It is very bright and sunny, isn’t it! It fits Gotz dolls, Kidz’n’Cats dolls and also slim dolls like Carpatina and Magic Attic. Modeled here by Nikki, Beatrice, Emily and Emma.
And yet another dress crocheted by my friend. The set also includes white crocheted shorts. We called the dress “Bellflower”. It fits Gotz dolls, Kidz’n’Cats dolls and also slim dolls like Carpatina and Magic Attic. Modeled here by Nikki, Beatrice, Emily and Emma.
Another dress that was recently crocheted by my mum. I called it “Cool Breeze”. The dress comes as a set with a sewn cotton underskirt and a crochet handbag. It fits equally well my Gotz dolls, Kidz’n’cats dolls and also slim dolls like Magic Attic and Carpatina.
When my daughter was about 4, her favourite film was a Russian fairy tale Father Frost (Morozko). The main heroine in that film is a very sweet and kind girl Nastenka (or Anastasia). My daugther dreamt of having a doll in a traditional Russian dress that would look just like her. So, my mum made a dress […]
