There are numerous DAL dolls that I am totally going bonkers over, but I will have to be patient and get each one by one as time and my pocketbook allows. However, I have been after this girl for awhile now, and I just couldn't pass her up. I love the subtle cobalt blue streak in her hair, and her stock is just ethereal looking. With Christmas around the corner, I have my fingers crossed hoping that this little darling will have a new friend to play with! ;)

Silver Amelie

She arrived at my house right after Thanksgiving, and all I can say is I am completely smitten with her! Rob is just so talented, and I'll have to say out of all my FR Nippon dolls, she is now my absolute favorite! Hope my other dolls don't read my blog or I'll be in deep trouble...Don't want a mutiny to occur.....!

Red Hot

 I decided to redress Cosmic Love the other day. I had received this fancy little purse in the mail a few weeks ago, and just recently got the chance to take a snapshot of Amelie with it. Doesn't the purse remind you of a miniature replica of those uber popular Celine ones you see being toted around.....?

My 2nd attempt at making dolly furniture! I wanted to make a neat and compact closet-like shelving unit to organize some of my FR Nippon accessories, so here it is! Closet shelving unit and side table are all handcrafted by me! The only piece of wood I didn't have to cut to size was the top part of the side table. Luckily, I found a wood piece already pre-cut into a unique shape, so all I had to do was sand, prime, paint, and also cut the table legs and glue them to the pre-cut wood piece. The closet shelving unit was more difficult since there were different wood pieces that I needed to cut down to size, sand, glue, and paint, but it was worth it! As long as Amelie likes it, then I'm good! :)

Hello Kitty Addict

Not only am I a huge fan of FR Nippon dolls, but I am also an avid aficionado of Hello Kitty. I mean, I am completely bonkers about Hello Kitty. I have been meaning to do a Hello Kitty and FR Nippon collaboration photo shoot for awhile now, but figuring out which of my numerous Hello Kitty figurines was the dilemma hold up.  Looks like I ultimately narrowed down my choices, and both Misaki's are breathing a sigh of relief that they can finally do their coveted snapshot.

Down By The River

My bf and I like to drive out to some random place away from the suburbs and the metropolitan areas and just enjoy nature. Even though the weather was somewhat ominous this past weekend, as soon as the sun peeked out, we jumped on the opportunity and drove out towards the mountains. We didn't get very far since there was snow from the recent rainstorm and all vehicles were required to have chains, so we stopped by a nearby creek to hike, fish, and take dolly photos! Enjoy!

Sushi/Cocktail Bar

So the other day my bf saw some of the dolly furniture I had recently purchased and suggested that I should try making some on my own. He took me to Lowe's and helped me get started in the right direction. So anyway, here's the finished result. I wanted to start with something distinctive and practical simultaneously, so I decided to make a "bar" type prop with matching bar stools. It was lots of fun cutting, sanding, gluing, priming, painting, and sealing the wood pieces...and now I'm hooked! I'm trying to think of the next type of dolly furniture I want to attempt next.....

Riding Beauty

I appreciate all things proper, but at the same time I am so glad to not have to always be a "lady". That meaning, not having to wear ill-fitting corsets, not having to be skilled at the pianoforte or in singing (although I would like to be, very much so), and also not having to ride horses side saddle. Amelie doesn't like to abide by the rules of propriety either and likes to take a breather on the highlands wherever and whenever she can. That includes wearing whatever she wants too.....
