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.

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

My November 2016 Trip to AG Place Chicago – By IrishAG

12-15-16-023

Hey everyone!  This is kind of a Throwback to a November post that I never finished.  Better late then never!   😀

In November, Curiousgeorgefan, my mom and I all went to AGP Chicago.  It was all decorated for Christmas, with greenery and ornaments, as shown above.  I didn’t take too many pictures, because I was focusing on being there.   🙂

12-15-16 024.JPG

Omigosh, this dress!  It was all over the store, and it is just beautiful.  It’s so sparkly!  The muff is super cute.  The doll I thought looked best in it was Truly Me #55, shown below.

For the first time ever, we went to the restaurant.  It was all decked out and bright.  The waiters were very enthusiastic and friendly.  You could put your doll in a seat to sit with you, or you could borrow a doll.

12-15-16-034

They gave us cups and saucers for the dolls, which was really fun.  You get to take them home!

12-15-16-035It was very fancy!  There were four courses: cinnamon buns, appetizer plate, entrée, and dessert.  Each course was small, but we were filled up.

12-15-16-036I got the “Bitty Bites”, which was a bunch of tiny food on a plate.  It was delish.

12-15-16-040The dessert was a flowerpot of chocolate mousse, and a vanilla cupcake.

Overall, I’d give the Café a 4.9 out of 5 rating.  The only complaint I have is that you could only be in there for an hour, so it was a little rushed towards the end.

One of the reasons I wanted to go was to see the Girl Ear Piercing station.  It is located where Creative-tees used to be, on the second level.  I think they discontinued the Creative-Tees because of the Signature Studio, which has more options.  The Doll Hospital drop-off was boarded up with red boards with stars on them.  I wonder what will happen there…

12-15-16-045This is the inside.  There wasn’t anyone there at the moment, so I snapped some pics.  On the lower left is the cart that has (I presume) the sanitation and piercing tools.  The dolls are there to stare at you while the deed is done.  (Just kidding!)  🙂

12-15-16-047This is where it all happens, folks.  The chair is hidden from view by the wall that faces “Avenue AG”.

There is my long-overdue tale.

Have you ever gone to an AG Place?

TONS of Doll Reveals!

More Characters to Love

Picture from AG’s website.

AG has released pictures of 5 new dolls: Nanea Mitchell (1940s Hawaiian girl-yay!!!), Tenney Grant, Logan Everett, Felicity Merriman (back from the archives!) and Z (from Z Crew stopmotions.)  OMIGOSH!!!!!!!!!!   😄   😄

I most excited for Felicity and Nanea.  What are your thoughts?

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

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”.   🙂

Tenney Grant and Logan Everett Revealed in AG Magazine!

2-6-17 008.JPG

Hey guys!

I got the March/April 2017 AG magazine, and this was inside the cover.  Tenney Grant!!!  And Logan Everett!!!

I’m surprised AG would release a picture, but I guess they’re taking away a lot of the secrecy, especially with the Gabriela reveal.

So…  I love Tenney!!!!  She looks like a Truly Me doll I’ve been eyeing for a while, I love her outfit much more than the Lilac dress Truly Mes come in.  And her hair and everything…  🙂  She’s gorgeous.  And I’m glad they’re making a doll from Nashville, as many, if not most of the dolls are from the upper east coast.

Logan, on the other hand, isn’t my cup of tea.  I wonder how well he’ll sell, maybe people who don’t want to customize will buy him.  I do like the drum set, though.

P.S.  This is my 100th post!!!!  🙂

Breaking News About Tenney Grant!

Hey people!

AG has released Tenney’s debut event!  February 17th-19th, 2017.  There will be an instrument card craft, guitar cookie and a doll-sized t-shirt (while supplies last).  I’ve heard she’ll be a ‘contemporary character’, maybe the first in a new line???

I’m excited to learn more about her, and see her collection!

Are you going to Tenney’s debut?
