25/52 ~ The Great Bake Off

I've been watching so many shows about cooking and primarily baking lately I thought I would use that as an idea for my photo this week, with Re-Ment of course ;o)

The twins are well known for their delicious cupcakes, but Yin wishes that Yang would be more careful not to get eggshell in the mix...

I've spent most of the day trawling ebay looking for more Re-Ment. I'm desperate for a fridge, one of the pink or white ones. If you see one please let me know! I picked up a few extra food sets that I was missing, and a little cabinet for the kitchen.

Doll Room Virtual Tour part 1

OK finally did my doll room tour!!

This is part one, had to do two videos because flickr only allows 90 second videos :D

I had a big clean up, my doll room is normally way messier than this lol.

I sound like a bit of a dork, oh well who cares it was kinda fun :D

I'm sick! Just a cold but I feel rotten and have felt pretty rotten all week but have had so much going on I've had to just ignore it and keep going. Today I'm giving in to it, I'm taking it easy and feeling sorry for myself.

I'm in a bit of a bind. I have a chance to buy a doll that I've wanted for a long time but it doesn't come with it's default clothes and for this particular doll it's default outfit is really important to me. This is the first time I've seen this doll for sale secondhand so he is pretty rare. Should I just buy him and just redress him with other clothes or wait and see if another one turns up? What would you do?

I bought two Lalaloopsy's that I had been looking for last week - Tippy Tumbelina and Mittens Fluff & Stuff. They are so cute, I'll try and take some pics of them next week. I'd love to get the new ones Misty Mysterious and Marina Anchors too but I think they will eBay US jobs because they aren't released here yet. I wonder if there is a community for them on Live Journal? Maybe I should start one??? I know there is a Monster High community on there, but I'm not really in to Monster High as I am Lalas. Which is really weird because I have always loved vampires and ghouls and the idea of that combined with a fashion doll is just so Perfect but they just don't do it for me. I love how Lalas are just so cute and colorful. Plus my girls love them too which maybe does add to the cuteness factor for me :o)

24/52 ~ Mabel

Here she is my beautiful, yet controversial Leekeworld Mikhaila.

I love her and I love Dust of Dolls Puns too. If I ever have the chance in the future I would buy a Puns as well. I almost felt too scared to post photos of Mabel, but damn, I love her and I'm glad I bought her.

* * *

* Had a huge clean up of the doll room yesterday. I didn't particularly want to do it but it had to be done. With doing the photo a week challenge I end up with bits and pieces all over the place and the last few weeks have kinda blurred into one huge mess. I am not a naturally tidy person, oh how I wish I was. Especially when I am creating, whether it's cooking, crafting or taking photos of dolls I am incredibly messy :( I wish I was one of those neat, organized people! Abyway doll room is tidy and slightly reorganized (still have a bit to do). I will hopefully get my virtual tour video done this week, provided I don't mess it up again before then lol.

* I feel stressed this morning. Is it really too much to ask that a 9 year old can get themselves ready in the morning for school without messing around? I mean seriously. Every single fucking morning is the same!! It's driving me mad. Am I expecting too much? Really, am I? All she has to do is get dressed, brush teeth, put her hair up ( all of which she is quite capable). I don't know how many times I have to say unpack your bag when you get home, put your hat in your bag for tomorrow and yet we still end up running around looking for fucking school hats nearly every morning. Then the night before last I found a note from school on the floor about stuff she needs to take in for school by next Monday (today) arghhhhhh!! We quickly got it sorted last night all ready for today. Anyway she has left for school and the stuff she needed to take is still sitting on the end of her bed *shakes head*. Im at the end if my tether, really I am :o(

* On a happier note I am totally loving Pinterest!! It's a great idea, finally I can do something with all those gorgeous pics I find here and there. I love the fact that it saves the original URL from where you find the pics because in the past when I have saved pics of dolls and then I forget what type of doll they are and where they are from etc, Pinterest just solves that problem beautifully. Anyone want an invite let me know :o)

23/52 ~ Ready for the party

Once again killing two birds with one stone. Here are Suri (Volks Sch C) and Sadie (Hyper Maniac Kakiva) dressed and ready to attend Bonmwe's party for the Nosegay sisters. Of course this is a virtual party, but still fun to play pretend.

Bonmwe has three dolls (Volks Lieselotte, Charlotte and Ran) who are based on real life sisters from a Victorian family called the Nosegays.

21/52 ~ The Girl Who Lived...

In a Small Wooden Box....

I don't think I've shared this little one before and I can't remember if she came first or the wooden box but it just so happened that she was the perfect size to fit in there and the box is done in an Alice theme and she is an Alice doll. Ha!

The doll is made by a lovely lady called Catherine over at Caya's Cottage (flickr, etsy, blogger), she makes darling little bears too :D The box was made by Danieru (flickr, Cookie Dolls on etsy). The front is all wood burnt, it's so pretty and the perfect little room inside for my little cloth Alice.
