Tenney, Logan and Felicity Release!!!

Tenney Doll & Book Logan DollFelicity Doll, Book & Accessories

All pictures in this post are from AG’s website.

Yep, you read that title correctly!  Today not one, not two, but three American Girl dolls were released.  Contemporary characters Tenney and Logan, musically talented bandmates from Nashville, and Felicity Merriman, a Colonial girl living in WIlliamsburg at the time of the American Revolution.  (Pictured left to right.)

Out of them all, Felicity is my favorite.  Gymnast03 got Felicity before she retired years ago, but I’m glad Felicity’s coming back!!!  Her stories are the best, and she’s such an awesome character.

I especially like her hat, I have one exactly like it!

You can buy the dolls and their collections online at Americangirl.com

Who Looks Best #3

Hi readers!   😀

I haven’t been posting very much due to (and I know you’ve heard this a million times) being busy.  Also, our computer is acting VERY strange, making it impossible to post, and difficult to comment on/read posts.  Sorry if I haven’t visited your blogs as usual.

Here I am with a Who Looks Best!  To play, simply look at the two pictures, pick your favorite model and comment your favorite!  The deadline for commenting is January 24th, 2017.  The dress is Lea Clark’s celebration dress, and will you pick…

Crystals- Part 2

Cast:

10-2-16-007

Nellie as Lady Fleurette

10-29-15 009

Saige as Lady Autumn

8-30-16 013

Addy as Lady Sommar

Part 2

     11-9-16 051.JPG

Lady Fleurette was excited.  Today she’d be coronated!  She would start her job as the Spring Princess.  Her mother had been very nervous about letting her go by herself to the Fall kingdom, which made Fleurette a little miffed.  But then, I did get my long locks accidentally burned off… and didn’t wear my hat, and freckled… she thought, fingering her now above shoulder length hair and fidgeting.  Her mother’s words from a few days ago came back to her:

“Sit still, Fleurette!”

“But I’m so antsy!  I’ve never seen the whole council, and Spring is only two seasons away!”

Her mother had smiled in spite of herself.  “You’ll need to be calm for the council, though.”

Fleurette gazed at the moving scenery, letting her mother’s words fade back into her memory.

***

11-9-16 045.JPG

     Lady Autumn breathed in the leafy air.  Fall, the season I’ll be in charge of.  Soon.  She loved everything about Fall: pumpkins, leaves, apple everything, and something Humans called Halloween, where children dressed up and ate too much candy.  And the fashionable clothes humans wore!  She’d tried to replicate one, with orange skinny pants and a billowy top.  Even her curly red hair screamed Fall.

11-9-16-043

     She blissfully turned her freckled face to the sun.  Since it was “her” season, the council would be held at her palace.

“I’ve gotta get back!”  she yelped, running home as fast as her boots could carry her.

***

11-9-16 035.JPG

     Lady Sommar was busy reading in her carriage.  Or, that’s what she was supposed to be doing.  She was actually staring out at the leafy trees, mourning that her season wouldn’t come for many months now.  Maybe the Queen will want a shorter Spring, her optimistic side hoped. But that’s still forever away!  Her dramatic side groaned.  She just couldn’t focus on her book, although she loved reading.  She daydreamed stories while sunshine streamed through the leaves and kissed her dark face.

Hey guys!  Can you believe November’s almost over?

So yay, new characters!  Their costumes were super fun to create.  Gymnast03 helped a lot, especially with Autumn’s outfit.  Feedback would be awesome!

Melody’s Summer Block Party Event

Hey everyone!

In August, my Mom and I went to the AG Place in Chicago for Melody’s Summer Block Party Event!  I took no pictures of Melody or anything in her collection, because I figured you’ve all seen a million pictures just like that.  And I was focusing on fun.   😀

 10-2-16-007

They gave out Melody doll shirts, which I REALLY like.  The lime green is such an original color.  And it went with Julia’s outfit that day.  🙂  The shirt came in a pink Melody packet, shown below.

10-2-16-004

They also gave out little color-in pennants with stickers, and a DIY doll garden craft.  (Not everything is shown.)  I thought it looked like a victory garden, and the seed packets say Jefferson, Illinois.  Which is where Molly, from the 1940’s, lives.  I think they reused a craft from a Molly event!

Here are the few pictures I took when I went to the store.

8-30-16 0048-30-16 005

I really like this outfit on these dolls!  Who do you think wore it best?

8-30-16 006

Fuzzy boots!  This doll looks great, too.

8-30-16 007

They changed this display!  Julia’s in the bottom left hand corner, she was all over the store!

Sorry for not posting this sooner!  Did you go to a Melody event?

I’m on Instructables!

Hey guys!

8-30-16 013.JPG

Yep, as the title says, I’m on Instructables!  It’s a super cool website that shows you how to make things.  You can write your own Instructable, and enter it in contests to win sweet prizes!  I entered a cornrow hairstyle in the hair contest, if you’re on Instructables, I’d love a vote and/or comment!  Rebekah, you requested a tutorial so nicely, here’s the link and I’m so sorry it’s late! : http://www.instructables.com/id/Cornrow-Hairstyle/

I did tweak the hairstyle a bit, by making the braids have two levels and making them smaller, just FYI.

Here are some pics I took after making the tutorial.

Smooth floor…

You have to dance on smooth floors.  It’s not even a question.  🙂

8-30-16 017

Twirling!   😄   ❤

New profile pic?  Maybe?

What’s your favorite hairstyle for dolls?  Mine might be waterfall braids, I don’t know.

Hugs!

My Favorites From The August 2016 AG Release – By IrishAG

Hi guys!  I’m so excited because………..  Melody’s HERE!!!!  🙂

There is so much that’s been released!  I’m going to post my opinion on all of Melody’s things, and then post my faves from the other collections.  All of the pictures are from American Girl’s website.  They’re having some bundle sales, if you’re interested.

Melody™ Doll & Book

Melody is CUTE!!!  Seriously.  I love her flippy hair, and the Sonali face mold definitely needs to be used more often!  ❤  ❤  I love her plaid dress.

Melody's Accessories

The hat!  The rest of it is fine, but the hat is my fave.

Blue Bow Top & Pleated Plaid Skort for Girls

This is for girls.  I like the skirt!

Melody's Fancy Floral Dress for 18-inch Dolls

When I first saw this dress, I thought it was hideous!  I like it a lot more now.  😀  It looks great with her skin.

Melody's Hairstyling Set

Her hairstyling set doesn’t have that much in it, but the hair is fun.

Melody's Recording Studio

I don’t think this is worth $250.  It would be a fun toy, though.

Melody's Microphone Set

I like the set!  The tambourine is cute!

  Melody's Electric Piano

So sunshiny and fun!  If a bit overpriced.

Melody's Pajamas for 18-inch Dolls

Look at her widdle braids!  So cute.  I like the P.J.s, but the Tinkerbell pom pom shoes are the best.  🙂

Starry Pajamas for Girls

Not my favorite P.J.s Ag has released.  They’re okay, but Maryellen’s are cuter.  These are for girls.

Melody's Dog, Bo

Aaaaw!  Bo’s bow matches Melody’s!  I’m not a huge fan of making the pets stuffed animals, but he’s cute.

Melody's Bed & Bedding

I like it!  The bedroom accessories really make it, though.

Melody's Bedroom Accessories

The elephant’s different.  I like the color of the radio.

 Melody's Play Outfit for 18-inch Dolls

I want to see it in person to get my opinion.  Love the bows and braids!

 Melody's Table & Chairs

Cute, the table reminds me of key lime pie.  🙂

 Melody's Block Party Set

This set looks so fun!  I really like it.  🙂
Melody's Christmas Outfit for 18-inch Dolls

This is my favorite outfit Melody has!  The color, the design, everything!  🙂

Melody's Fancy Coat for 18-inch Dolls

Cute!

Melody's Travel Essentials

This is fun, I love the round suitcase!

Melody™ Mini Doll

I don’t like the new design of the mini dolls as much as I liked the old design.

Whew!  Okay, now I’m just going to post my faves.  (I didn’t post Melody’s books, but she has some.)

American Girl Winter Wishes Outfit for WellieWishers Dolls

Love the cape.

American Girl Hair Salon Scene
