AGP NY News!

Hey everyone!

Remember when there was the article about AG Place in New York making “the store of the future” with spa services for dolls and girls, as well as many other services and upgrades?  They said they were going to move the store.  On americangirl.com, in the store section, it said that the New York store was moving to Rockefeller Plaza in November!

I wonder if they will upgrade the store when they move it?  Or wait a little?

What are your thoughts?

Monkey dress!

Hello reader!  🙂

Sewing/making things for your dolls is so much more fun than buying them, in my opinion.(Most of the time.)  🙂  I went to a doll sewing class, where we made these cute pillowcase dresses!  I made a purple one, (which you might’ve seen in the Happy Birthday Addy! post) and this one Grace is wearing:

Look at the little monkeys!  They’re eating watermelon and strawberries.    😀

Don’t these irises look like popcorn?  That’s what I always think of when I see them.  🙂

Grace is just so photogenic!  It probably helps that she has the Josefina face mold, which usually looks gentle and peaceful.

Strawberries or watermelon?  😀

Tutu Triplets

6-1-17 016.JPGHello!  Happy June!

Yesterday, I realized that I have never taken photos with all of my dolls before, at least since I got Addy.  So, here are my three dolls: Nellie, Julia, and Addy.  (BTW… they’re not triplets, I just liked the alliteration for the title.)

I just ❤ the coconut cutie outfit!!!  I got it as a PWP, I think.  I’m making it Julia’s “meet” outfit.  It is really well-made, and soft.  It comes with a shirt, tutu skirt, shoes, and two plastic bow clips, which I didn’t put in her hair for these pics.

Josefina…

Hey guys!  I know, I couldn’t think of a good title for this one.

5-15-17 048.JPG

hair askew, she walks at dusk

quiet stepping, dodging corn husks

lively party, can’t go in

secret dancing to violin

climbing quickly up a tree

the setting sun not hard to see

5-15-17 036.JPG

watching dancers twirl right by

pretty as the painted sky

naming all the herbal dyes

no one sees the hidden spy

5-15-17 044trying to remember her

wondering what she would wear

noting quickly darkening space

scuttling down at hasty pace

5-15-17 058.JPG

halted by the scent of flowers

mama-longing overpowers

comforted by lovely sight

hearing her name called in the night

running fast to Papa’s arms

sanctuary from all harms.

***

Another poem-shoot!  I didn’t intend to do this, but the photo shoot I took didn’t have a lot of pictures I wanted to post.  🙂

This was (loosely) based on a part of Changes for Josefina, one of her pre-BeForever books.

Happy Birthday Addy!

5-4-17 007.JPGIf you guessed Princess Leia Organa/Skywalker/Solo, you’re right!  And Bagpipe99 made BB-8 for me last year, so he tagged along as well.

What is she wearing?

– colonial shift from Felicity’s meet outfit #2 (I think)

– a silver belt of mine

– tutu from Grace’s Sightseeing outfit

– boots from Grace’s meet outfit

AG Doll Size Kili Coat From the Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey

Hey everyone!

The title says it all.  I made a doll-size Kili coat.  Kili is a dwarf from the book and movies The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.  I’m a big Tolkien geek.  🙂  This coat is what Kili wears when you see him for the first time in the first movie- The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey.

Image result for Kili at your service

Credit to whoever owns this picture.

Kili’s on the right.  I made a VERY simplified version of his greyish-blue coat, basically from memory (and using the materials we had).  I love all the celtic designs…

Final Kili Coat 001

Have you ever seen any of The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings movies?   (Bonus points if you’ve read the books!) If so, who are your favorite characters?

What’s Going On

Don’t freak out.  This is not an “I’m leaving” post.  You would be justified in thinking that, since I haven’t blogged in a month-ish.  I do this blog for fun, so I don’t have a schedule.  I just post when I want to (and have decent material!), so the joy is still in it.

And for some reason WordPress isn’t allowing me to cut and paste pictures, so the Name Game #3 has to be postponed for a bit.

I am working on Crystals and some more future posts, so stay tuned!  🙂

Thanks for your patience!   😀  And thanks so much for being loyal blog-checkers.
