Barbie for big girls.

In the Pink Nadja

What can I say…I am in a pink and Nadja mood right now.  I adore this doll and in this amazing pastel pink she just sings to me.   I don’t believe you can ever go wrong with pastel pink.  For the past year now, we have been in quarantine in my area.  We are located uncomfortably close to the first cases of the virus in the US.  We knew we had community spread early on so my husband’s workplace told everyone to work remotely from home last March.  Both of my college age kiddos also have been doing remote learning for their respective colleges for many months.  It’s a full house once again and I kinda like it.  I know it’s only temporary and will enjoy it while I can. 

While I haven’t been active on the blog, I have not been idle.  I decided last year to switch a now unused space in our home ( the kids play room) to a full time studio/craft space.  I will do a blog post on that project at a later time but the crafting space is allowing me to pursue another passion for now…miniature plants and flowers.  This love of crafting miniature plants has dovetailed rather nicely into a home re-landscaping project that has been in the planning for many years.  We finally completed the bulk of the landscape project this year and await final pieces this spring.   So, I guess what I am saying is…plants and flowers will be popping up on images for the blog. 

My mindset for the images in today’s post was Spring.  Since Jessy Ayala designed a very chic and edgy outfit with vibrant color for the original doll, I wanted to try and take her softer and more pastel for contrast.  In my mind, this is her office in Paris where she runs some kind of floral or home decorating empire.  It is springtime in Paris and you can imagine that the sunshine coming into the shot is from a set of french doors with a view of the Eiffel tower over the black ornate wrought iron balcony railing. 

I am also channeling a bit of Frida Kahlo here with the miniature hydrangeas in her hair.  Just go with it.

This scene is also full of fun little miniatures that I have worked on for the past year and some that I have purchased ( the purse and computer).  I always love to see detail photos in other people’s dioramas so I am including a couple here.

    The pics are breathtaking!!! Nadja is stunning in that fashion and it suits her perfectly. Do you plan on selling some of the flowers, bags, etc. in the near future?

    • Hello my dear! Thank you for the lovely comments as always. To be honest, I am unsure on where I am going with the flowers. For now they are lovely photo props but I am honestly thinking about possibly selling all of the props in the future. Shipping these flowers is the issue. Will have to think about it. More flowers will be coming on the blog so I hope you will continue to enjoy :-).

    Rebecca, I love the last shot showing us how you style for your gorgeous photography. This week has seemed very spring like for Seattle/ Bellevue. Lovely doll as well.
