I want to take Kanani and Saige to the beach this year for some photo ops, but I don’t know. Last year I took only one doll, McKenna, and that was enough trouble..

Someone on AGPT requested photos of Molly in modern clothes. I did a quickie photoshoot before work, and this is the result. I was going kind of fast, so these aren’t the greatest, lol.

Samantha didn’t have any spring outfits, so I purchased this reproduction of her Birthday Dress on eBay. It’s not as pretty as the original, but it was decent for the price, which was only a little over $13, whereas the original, if you want the whole outfit, is around $80. D=

Laura Ingalls Custom

I’ve been watching Little House on the Prairie a LOT lately, my goal is to watch it from start to finish. I’m on Season 3 now… I’ve only ever seen one episode of it a long time ago (the first episode, actually) and was intrigued. But, we didn’t have cable, so I never got around to it.

But, now I’m watching it and I love it. So much so, that I want to make a Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls American Girl custom. I decided to go with #55 as the base, because she’s got the freckles and hazel eyes already; all I’d need to do is re-wig her, and sew her some dresses, which should be fun. I actually happen to have Kirsten’s Dress Patterns that my mom found at a thrift store for $3, so those will be helpful (although I’m pretty sure all the patterns are available on AG Playthings for free to download and print, anyway.)

It’ll be a while before I get started on her (if I ever do), but it’s definitely a thought.

Poor Samantha! I don’t have a spring/summer outfit for her…. so she is stuck in this stupid baby outfit (jk it’s a cute outfit) for present.

My friend and I visited the Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, VA this past Saturday, where Valerie Tripp did a book signing and talk. She graciously took a photo with my Molly doll (and my friend got a picture of her, her Samantha doll, and Valerie) and I took a pic of Molly and Sam on a bench outside the mansion. It was a lot of fun!


I just realized I’ve been reblogging stuff on here that was meant for my main blog. I’m sorry!!! It happens sometimes when I blog from my phone and forget to change the Publish To.


Argh, can’t decide!

My coworker and I are going to a Valerie Tripp (author of several historical AG series) book signing… normally, I wouldn’t be going because she comes into the store every so often to do signings anyway, and those are free… this one is $20. But it’s at a plantation and it’s gonna be all special and stuff so I am pretty excited.

The thing is, I can’t decide which doll(s) to bring. On one hand, I love my Samantha. She’s a Pleasant so she’s special. On the other hand, Molly is my FAVORITE. On the OTHER other hand, I could bring Felicity and Elizabeth in their gorgeous Tea Lesson Gowns, and wouldn’t that be precious??

Too many choices!!!



Valentino’s Fall 2013 Collection Was Inspired By American Girl Dolls (Maybe)
Who knew that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli were also fans of your favorite historical dolls?

Felicity Merriman, 1774; Caroline Abbot, 1812; Marie-Grace Gardner, 1853; Josefina Montoya, 1864; Samantha Parkington, 1904; Kit Kittredge, 1934; Molly McIntire, 1944

Cool! Even if it was unintentional, what a neat connection to draw.

Omg…I have a really hard time believing this was coincidental…
