Merry Christmas!

Melody and Bo would like to wish you a merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Anne got mini Luciana for Christmas!


I definitely think that mini Luciana is one of the cutest mini dolls. Anne is completely smitten.

Merry Christmas!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

It's the night before Christmas, and Kit is snuggled in bed with a good book.


I think that's a great way to spend Christmas Eve!

In Iceland, there is a tradition of giving books as gifts on Christmas Eve. I love it!
It might make it hard to go to bed, though.

You can read more about that here.

I love these pajamas for Kit and am glad that I bought them shortly before they retired.

Since Kit's bedroom is in an attic, I bet that it is cold in the winter.

Mara knows that Santa won't come until she is asleep!

I think that visions of sugar plums dance in her head.

I hope everyone is relaxing and enjoying today!

Ready for the Holidays

Are you ready for the holidays?

Melody and Bo are!


Melody should get under the covers, her bare legs look chilly!

Christmas for Felicity

I am not gonna lie, Felicity is the queen of my doll collection.

Anne is the princess, in a matter of speaking, (she would not want to be called a princess), but Felicity is the queen.

These Christmas pictures of Felicity make me so happy.


I know the background is really too modern for Felicity, but it's much better than a blank wall!


I got the Noah's Ark for Felicity just as American Girl was discontinuing it, and this never fails to make me happy. I am so glad that I have this for my girl, and all the tiny pieces.

And she would certainly rather be playing in front of the fire than outside in the snow!

Felicity wishes everyone a merry Christmas!

Katie and Pooh Bear


Katie and Pooh Bear are ready for the holidays!

How about you?

I'm just really glad that I still enjoy Katie after all these years together.

Katie has been old enough to vote for over a decade now. LOL.

Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow...
In a one dog open sleigh...

Wait, that's not right.

My friend got me this sleigh to take guinea pig pictures.

I have no idea where it came from.

But I was taking doll Christmas pictures when I spotted this sleigh, and thought, wait a minute.

Ta da! Meatloaf the bulldog gets a Christmas picture too!

Happy St. Lucia Day!

This year, St. Lucia's Day is on Friday the 13th!

I thought that was kind of funny.

I thought of doing a mashup picture, but Kirsten says don't you dare, this is the first time she's gotten to dress up for St. Lucia since the 1990s.

Happy St. Lucia's Day!

Katie and Rudolph

Katie and Rudolph are ready for Christmas!


This is my childhood baby doll, Katie, with my childhood stuffed animal Rudolph the reindeer, lying together on the baby blanket my grandmother made me.

It gives me all the feels.

Who says you have to grow up?

Katie's Santa uniform is new. I bought it brand new at Goodwill, with the tags still attached, for $2.
Score!

This is a newborn size. Katie can wear the 0-3 months size, but it seems that usually newborn size is a slightly better fit on her.

Holiday preparation


My Madame Alexander dolls are ready for the holidays.

How about you?

I have worked far in advance this year to get some great Christmas pictures!

1980s Doll Clothes Patterns

It looks like our next historical doll will be from the 1980s! I have started making a list of patterns for her, but that list is currently ...
