Barbie for big girls.

It’s Alive!!!

Well, what else can I say…life got busy and then busier.  You would think the pandemic would have been prime time to get the blog going again.  It was indeed the plan but alas, plans don’t pan out.  I’m still here.  I still collect.  I still take photographs of my dolls ( although not a lot in the past couple of years).  Why am I blogging today you ask.  Well, my good friend Hilda Westervelt ( Bellissima Couture) have cooked up a collaborative Holiday collection and I wanted to share.  It felt good to pick up the camera and create again.  I think I will try to do more of it in 2023.

It’s full on holiday spirit in the studio.  If you are interested in any of these beautiful outfits, contact Hilda Westervelt at for prices and particulars.  There are 6 fashions for sale.  The little Amaryllis plants and paperwhites are available as well.  They are $40/ plant.  They are made by me ( I enjoyed paper gardening during the pandemic) from paper, wire and ink.  For those of you who own some of my miniatures, you are aware that I like to pay attention to detail.  I am happy with how these turned out.

On to the photos….

    Are you selling the plants, or is Hilda? I’d love to buy two of the white plants.
