I spent a chunk of my Christmas pottery sales on these little honeys for mine.
Urban Cowgirl and Cassiopeia Spice. Aren't those perfect for my horse girl and star girl? Plus, almost the least expensive currently available--they just came out last fall so are more available, methinks--and I did pay less than 1/2 the Japanese retail price, though I also pulled the classic ebay trick of waiting for an auction to end instead of choosing the BIN option, for the honor of paying more. Hooray.
What might we be beginning?
I've been fascinated by the Blythe movement (subculture? crafty doll dressing and customizing delight?) before, but was finally entranced by this new blog introduction:
and her flickr set.
Just turned the corner.
I'm not sure why I'm so fired up about making Blythe clothes and have not yet made a single American Girl doll dress. I think I like the aesthetic more. It's very much fancy-tickling. I'm so excited to customize and oooh...so much! Thinking that I'm waiting for Audrey's birthday. We'll see.
So excited. I told both girls "my secret!" (they've been really delighted as we checked them out together), and we've been bouncy about it.
Take that, January blues.
