The Journey

As many of you know, I have just returned from a month of traveling.  It was the most amazing trip with my family and for a few glorious weeks some dear friends.  The memories made during those travels are priceless and the new perspective I bring back with me every time I journey out of my own country is such a gift to me.  I feel richer emotionally than when I left and so appreciative for all that I have seen, experienced and learned.  My hope is that I can bring this into the pictures that I take.

For this set of photos, one of my new arrivals Ms. Splendid Jordan has just returned from a journey of her own.  I wish I had her luggage…..

All of life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.”

Wishing everyone a safe and happy journey today Smile

HP Eugenia…More Redressing Fun

My camera and I don’t seem to be able to get enough of this lady in red so I have a few more shots to share from a day of  redressing  fun.  My favorite set out of the three redresses is directly below.  I love Hilda’s dress and the fact that Ms. Eugenia is waiting to enjoy a glass of wine and perhaps a picnic as if to celebrate the autumn season.   Fall or Autumn ( however you call it) is one of my absolute favorite seasons…it means the holidays are right around the corner.  I love the smell of leaves, the vibrant colors of the season and those crisp foggy mornings where shafts of sun ( if we see it at all in the Pacific Northwest) fight their way through the foggy curtain.   It’s a dreamy sort of light and feel and I just adore it. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Envied, Bemused and Passionate…A Second Look

I was moving the displays around in the cases the other day and decided these guys needed a second look.  I had these ladies displayed on this couch just as I have them posed for a while but it is time to move them out and display some different dolls.  I know that most people ordered these gals for their cute little dresses but I actually really like the dolls.  I know that Barb at Windy City Dolls still has a few on sale http://www.windycitydolls.com/frmonogram.htm#Sale

Models:  Fashion Royalty Monogram “Envied”, “Bemused” and “ Passionate”

Couch: Horseman Urban Environment ( meant for 16” dolls so scale is slightly off for this shot)

Birdcages: Found at favorite flea market.  I think they were holiday ornaments.

R.E. Agnes Welcomes Spring in Gwendolyn’s Treasures

I have been a big fan of Gwendolyn’s Treasures for quite a while.  I just love the fabrics she uses and the classic styling not to mention the impeccable execution.  It was no surprise that when I saw this pink dress and accessories, I said “gotta have it!”   With Easter coming up and Spring limping its way into our neck of the woods (wish it would hurry up already!)  I wanted to pull out the pastels and go for “girly”.    I recently acquired this Agnes and boy am I glad I did.  I think she is one of the most beautiful variations of Agnes that Integrity has ever done.  It is so easy to go for a dark and sexy shot with this lady so I wanted to go the exact opposite and try sweet and simple.
