I’ve had two Simply Peppermint’s and each time, I can’t bond to them. So, I sent them both off to get a new lease on life, and the first came home this week – Juniper (I named her Juniper meaning young and evergreen). Juniper was sent to the talented Christine at Forty Dolly Winks and I asked her to have fantasy coloured eyeshadows… and a secret little smile.
I’ve been stuck in bed all weekend, and didn’t get as much work done as I’d like. But, happily, I did manage to get started on a few of the dolls I have waiting for commission as I wait for the supplies for the others to arrive.
Recently I have been totally loving on my brunette girls Agnes (Lorshek Molseh) and my dark-locked Kenner Raven. I received a new hat from from Momo Penguinbaby which was this gorgeous knitted thing with built-in earmuffs and a tiny shroom on top, as well as a new dress from the Pumpkinbelle. So why not have the chocolate-haired girls model?
I’ve always been enamoured with Miss Sally Rice. She constantly shows up on “Wishlist” girls for many Blythe Collectors. Like Margo Unique Girl, I never thought that I’d actually be able to obtain one. Her prices were always very high (hitting around the $800USD mark at the beginning of this year) and then… suddenly…
Recently, I’ve been looking at re-bodying my Forty Winks girl Quinn as I wanted a younger look for her. I was thinking of putting her on a Licca body (which I will do a tutorial for soon) but while I was at it, I thought I would show you the difference between three of the most popular Blythe bodies: the Standard Takara, the Pure Neemo S and the Licca.

It is the second week of September, and the sun has finally come out of its long hibernation over the Australian winter, and we were greeted with this lovely, lovely, warm spring day. And what better to do then to make dolls, and photograph dolls! Outdoors! Fresh Air! Quick Drying Things!
I remember rambling on a while back about wishlists girls! I’ve been able to feed some funds back into my hobby by selling some older girls, and doing some other work, trading some things… so happily my Dolly Kitty is healthy once more.
