Spending some time up in the mountains with my sis. It's rainy and cold outside but it's warm inside and the sun is most definitely shining! - The birthday margaritas may have something to do with that.
I made this cake for my sis. It is her first Barbie ever and my first attempt at making a doll cake. It was a lot of fun and now I can't wait to make another!
Have any of you made these doll cakes? I'll definitely be making more! read more »

Ive been pretty distracted lately--sorry. There was a week of complete pandemonium in my house as we helped my son prepare for a big science fair in Phoenix. Now that were finally in Arizona, I have some time to relax and write. I am so excited to be here--partly because of the science, but also because its neat to be in the desert. It looks completely different from Maine. I mean, I saw a cactus at the side of the road last night as we drove from the airport. A cactus.

Juku Couture dolls are 9 inch articulated plastic fashion dolls with inset eyes. The dolls are named after a Japanese fashion trend called Harajuku that involves combining lots of mis-matched fashion elements into a personalized look.

These dolls were released by Jakks Pacific in 2008 and, from what I can tell, were discontinued after only four waves: Series 1, Series 2 (called In the Wild), a 2009 re-release ... read more »
It seems fitting that I stumbled upon China Girl while I was writing my post about antique dolls. I had crazing, cracking and bisque on my mind as I was wandering the aisles of Target, and I could barely believe my eyes when I saw a plastic doll made to look like she was made out of porcelain. Without knowing a thing about who she was, I handed over $19.99 and brought her home.
The China Girl is actually a character from the new movie, Oz, The Great and Powerful. I havent seen the movie yet, but Ive ... read more »
J-Dolls are highly articulated 9-inch plastic fashion dolls that are made by the same company that makes Pullip dolls. If youve ever admired a Pullip dolls style and articulation but been turned off by the oversized noggin, a J-Doll might be a nice alternative. In a nutshell, J-Dolls are Pullips with shrunken heads.
J-Dolls were first made in 2006 by Jun Planning Co, Inc. As with their Pullip cousins, manufacturing changed hands in 2009 when the Japanese branch of Jun Planning declared bankruptcy and... read more »
"Maaaaaa....!!!" Mithi's voice quivered as she ran down the steps, restless and tensed. "Ma, where is Sally? I left her on my bed before going to school."
Radha picked up her three-year-old, planted a long,noisy kiss on her cheek, and said, "Sally was old and tattered, wasn't she, Mithi? I'll get you a new one, a Birthday Barbie, I promise."
Mithi's brown eyes welled up with tears. Her three-year-old mind knew she would never see her dear Sally again.
A chunk of Mithi's childhood died that day. read more »

Hello lovelies!If you don't know, one of my favourite make up brands is Seventeen at Boots. I love their products because they're great quality, and they're purse friendly. I use several of their products in my day to day make up, and own a wide variety of shades of their nail polishes.On this months monthly voyage to Boots for supplies, I took a look at the Seventeen stand and treated myself to a few new goodies.
