Meet Gerta!

Well, here she is! The beautiful Gerta! She is a Tea for Two Blythe that a dear friend allowed me to adopt not too long ago! She is here to support my poor Charlotte (Kozy Kape Blythe), who is currently being tormented by these tiny little sisters a.k.a. the Monnaemi Sisters.
Gerta is utterly adorable in her little A-line dress from megipupu, a little shop on Etsy.

Her happy red boots are from Chic Mystery, an eBay seller. I am thrilled with how much stuff is available for Blythe dolls on eBay.

Amazed, too!

Gerta's head is super heavy! Her skinny litle legs seem to buckle a little when I stand her upright. Thank goodness for doll stands! She needs it!

I am really taken with these big-eyed creatures! I wonder what took me so long to examine them and bring one home with me. Well, whatever the reason, I'm glad that I've finally been Blytherized! Ho! HO!

The Blythe Madness

Oh my goodness, I can't believe that she came today! My ADG Kozy Kape Blythe! What a huge head she has, haha! I immediately set to work trying on different Blythe outfits on her, and even went through my Barbie stash looking for some smaller pieces that worked. It was fun, but horribly exhausting! I did not take pictures as I tried on stuff, so we have to settle for the last thing I've managed to change her into before calling it a night.

By the way, a very pleasant surprise was discovering that Blythe has a cleft chin! I simply did NOT notice that in the Blythe pictures I've been staring at for the past couple of years. I was a bit distracted by those ginormous eyes, I guess... The cleft chin really adds a gentle sweetness to her.

Anyway, looks like the Blythe Madness has hit my home! Heh heh! Can't wait to take her outside for some more photos. But for now, goodnight and sweet dreams...


Of Kimonos and Hair!

A Poem by an Unknown Girl

Hair......long sleek silky hair
Floppy dark raven hair
Vibrant hues of auburn hair

Mops of golden baby hair
Softly shaven 'bald-head' hair
Tennis ball-like to the touch

All different types of hair
I like so much
What is it with hair?
That makes you double-backand just stare?

But most of all the one
that steals my attention
is that dark, shaggy, in-the-eyes
type of hair! !

Heaven......... I must be mad
but do you know?
I just love hair! ! !

These three kimonos were bought on Yahoo!Japan, which is just about my favorite source for Japanese costumes for my dolls. The largest one is made of sumptuous silk, and the colors and pattern are just delightful. I actually meant it for a slightly smaller doll (Marguerite Joy), but she's so kicky and slippery that I simply could not get it on her. I will have to try again when I'm calm and not so impatient! The middle one is very cute, also of silk. It's a shorter, above-the-knees length one that suits my Miss Rosie's perky personality to a T! The color is really nicely contrasted by her tan! And the teeniest one is barely three inches tall and amazingly detailed for such a miniscule item! I am in complete awe of what Japanese seamstresses can do!

I want a kimono for every one of my dolls, which means that I have, let's see...7 more to go, hahah! Well, actually just 4. I have 2 others that just doesn't suit any of them color-wise, and Keo is a boy, so he'll get a Hakama instead. Of course, it would be nice if each could have a kimono/hakama for every season! Mina has a gorgeous autumn-hued one, and it would be fun to find a colorful spring one for her, too. Sigh........... Some day!

Too Much Stuff and Not Enough Money,
