My Dream BL Dolly

So here she is, my dream dolly for the past 4 years. I am so lucky to finally have her in the family! Thanks to Nancy/Piccadilly, my BL family is even more special now.

Her name is Abigail / Abby. I made this dress intending for Etsy but she looked so good in it, it had to be a keeper.

We took a trip to Huntington Library in San Marino today and it was such a beautiful day out with so many flowers blooming!

Saffy Fan Club!


When the RBL Prima Dollies came out, I just couldn't resist their cuteness. Please welcome Harriet to the xoxo,Blythe family!

RBL is very different from EBL/SBL - I have to photograph from differently because the eyes are deeper-set and larger. I think it's so amazing that they look very Kenner-like from certain angles too! I can't wait to see more of the RBL girls, especially Gentle River from Team Sibley!

Lovely Myra

Myra in a Vintage Dress
I love vintage dolly dresses! We went to a few antique stores in Pasadena yesterday and came across this lovely little crocheted number that we simply could not pass up. Myra, my brunette KB, looks great in this color!

A few more pics in my Flickr. ^__^

Re-Introducing... Gritte!

I adopted Gritte from Courtney/Sailor B back in Fall 2004. Gritte is a sweetheart and I've always loved photographing her, but I always felt like she needed a little change. I got up the courage to give her a little makeover last weekend - gave her a haircut so now she has a sweet wavy bob, swapped out her eyemech from SBL to EBL, re-painted/re-shaped her lips as well as give her new eyeshadow and blush. Now I think she's the cutie pie she's meant to be.

What Gritte looked like before
