Happy Birthday Addy!

Hello everybody!

Today is the day I chose for my Addy’s birthday!  She’s been at our house for a year now!  🙂

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

Julia’s Wishful Thinking

2-24-17-006

Hi reader!   🙂

I don’t know about you, but I’m already itching for Spring.  It’s my favorite season!  It’s Julia’s favorite, too.  And since it is her birthday month (and she um, kind of wasn’t in the Valentine’s Day post… even though it was her birthday…) she deserved a photo shoot!

She looks like a totally different doll in this pic… isn’t it weird how that happens?  Pro tip:  If you’re considering buying a doll, google it!  Check out lots of pictures of her, and if you still like the look of her from various angles, you know it’s the one.    😄

This reminds me of a cover of an Anne of Green Gables-type book.  I got really lucky  with the weather, the ground was dry and the rain didn’t start until I was done taking photos!

I just noticed that this shoot had a sort of melancholy feel to it.  Maybe the grey sky helped?  Thoughts?

Julia is wearing Nellie’s Spring party dress, barette and shoes.

Who’s your favorite Historical Character?

Brynn, Noa and Elana from AG Life!  (Saige as Brynn, Elizabeth the 1st as Noa, and Josefina as Elana.)  In a recent episode, they made popcorn.  And we had 4 doll popcorns from the Lea movie event, so it was perfect!

Grace Thomas, being the baker that she is, had to get in on the fun, too!  She made tarts for Valentine’s day.3-17-16 010.JPGHere’s a shot from “her kitchen”.   🙂

Happy (Late) St. Lucia Day!

Hi readers!  Happy belated St. Lucia day!   😀  (It was on December 13th.)

 

Picture from American Girl Wikia

This holiday is very special in Kirsten’s stories.  In Kirsten’s Surprise, Kirsten, with the help of her cousins, dresses up as St. Lucia and serves the traditional treats to her family.

The gown above is the one AG sold.

Since we don’t have Kirsten’s St. Lucia gown, I decided to make one!  I used Josefina’s blouse from her feast outfit and a red ribbon we had lying around.  For the wreath, I scrounged in the basement and found some faux leaves that twine around each other nicely.  The candle is just from a box.

This is the result!  It’s not a perfect match, but it will do.   🙂  A VERY IMPORTANT TIP: If you use real candles for a doll’s St. Lucia outfit, do NOT Light the candles!!!!  You could damage your doll.

Do you celebrate St. Lucia day?
