Demelza has had this dress for awhile… but for some reason I have a hard time photographing it. Well, I give up. Here’s my bad photos of a REALLY CUTE OUTFIT. The ensemble w/ the black wig is much more awesome in person, I can’t take her out of it. Kitten dress from YJP. Whoop!
cutest. picture. ever. the end.
Oh, alright. There’s more.
Another Global “Bleuette” outfit! I really like this one too, and I think it is even a better fit. The wig, a wee Global mohair wig is too small! *cry* It is being held on by just the cap. Still so cute. Will see if there is some way to mangle it so it fits.
Props by American Girl. They are rad! The detail is super fab. However, with moving parts and so much detail, things like the camera will break easily so be careful. Also got the night stand and wash set! A little short for SD, still makes a good prop.
Demelza had to try her hand with the stereoscope…
The detail, again, is gorgeous. Brown velvet rim around the mask, punched designs in metal mask casing, all wood parts. The metal is soft, so you have to be careful not to snap off the moving handle. It comes with stereoview cards of national monuments!
Fab find of the day… a vintage wicker baby buggy with collapsible canvas top. In perfect working order! Perfect size for St. Trinian or, dare I say, a mini super dollfie! *wink* Also got two gorgeous miniature framed pieces of needlework. You can see one or two in the background of these photos. They are tiny cross stitch silhouettes of 18th century style couple at their writing desks writing. We didn’t have a lot of money, and she wanted $50 for the pair. I offered $35, as it was all I had left and told her I knew it wasn’t enough. She was very sweet but declined. I got a few stalls down and she came after me and said she could tell I really loved them, if I wanted them at $35 they were mine. I was so shocked, what a gorgeous woman! So sweet. They remind me so much of my grandmother and her things, and her needlework. I will get a better picture of them later.
Other new stuff. Bargain of the week. Got a crate of goods from Audrey’s doll supply. In less than a week! They actually had everything in stock. I bought mostly mohair wigs, but this little acrylic one in sausage curls is quite sweet, though at a 6-7 is a bit big for Trinian. But, ta-dah! The Global “bleuette” outfits fit her! I took a stab at it and ordered a couple. This little brown wool suit is FAB. A bit on the wide side, but fits decently all the same. I’m going back and getting the communion outfit.
Trinian is also trying out her new masterpiece eyes. They are a little “bright” for me. I was hoping for something pale, but not so shiney? Dunno. I got the antique pink as well, and those are definately too shiney. Merp.
Ondine Alice loves pushing St. Trinian around. But she had a little accident with the buggy and got a smudge on her cheek. Trying to clean it off rubbed some of her blushing. Sigh… will need to redo her at some point now. If I could just save those eyebrows!
I finally caved and bought my favorite two BTSSB outfits for Super Dollfie. I waited and kept bidding until I got the bargain I wanted. I can’t tell you how beautifully produced these outfits are, they are truly stunning. Mew, mew, mew! Fifi is of course wearing the Dollheart London outfit. All the girls have had it on, it refuses to go back on the shelf. I don’t have to tell you how much I really love it…

31,000 y! But just look at her and DREAM. I think I will make myself a little black wounded bunny. That’ll make me feel better.
Special Anniversary Excelina:
There is nothing like unexpected prezzies from a stranger (!) to make a bad day better. Fifi recieved the most beeyootiful gift in the mail today from Andrea, a gorgeous long coat!
Must be seen to be believed, I’m totally flubbergusted! It is great almost peacock feather pattern fabric with purple velveteen cuffs and collar and is lined in pink satin and has real pockets! Aieeeeeee! And the fit is beautiful. Thanks again, Andrea!
