Today has been a very rainy day and Anna Larson has been stuck inside the cabin. She decided to start making a scarf so that she can practice her knitting.
Today is Felicity’s birthday! Felicity was my first American Girl doll; I got her when I was in 6th grade. Her Spring Gown and Pinner Apron (aka her Birthday outfit) was the first extra outfit I got for her and it was actually her only extra outfit for many years. It’s still my favorite of hers.
Here are a couple of photos of Felicity with her little sister, Nanette.
And a photo of Felicity by a Penny Wooden Doll at Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts.
Felicity is excited to finally have her Laced Jacket and Petticoat, aka her Learns A Lesson outfit. This outfit is a such a classic and looks lovely on Miss Lissie. Her mother sent her this jacket and petticoat all the way from Virginia. Felicity can’t wait to show her classmates her new outfit when she goes back to Primrose Academy For Young Ladies on Monday.
Nan is hoping that she’ll get a similar outfit soon.
Today is Hannah (Bitty Baby) and Kaya’s birthday! Happy Birthday, girls!
Hello! Happy February! Today is Marina Wilkin’s birthday and she’s enjoying the day with some friends, watching movies and playing games.
Last month Molly Joan McIntire came down with a nasty cold. She had been trying to curl her hair and went outside with it all sopping wet, in the cold winter weather. She’s been eating lots of chicken noodle soup and drinking orange juice.
Lastly, Isabelle Palmer’s older sister, Jade, has moved to Star Valley to be with her sister. Like Belle, Jade is passionate about dancing, especially ballet. She’s looking forward to joining the Star Valley Academy of Dance and hopes to get some fun parts in productions as well as recitals.
It is New Year’s Eve once again and Elsie and I are celebrating our birthdays together (everyone around the world celebrates with us 😉 ).
The dolls and plushies of Star Valley are ringing in the New Year in different ways, with family and friends. Elara took her sister, Elsie, out for a birthday lunch at the Raspberry Flummery Cafe where they enjoyed burgers, cupcakes, and milk shakes. Elsie even dressed up in a shiny new dress and was given a birthday sash to wear.
I hope that all of you have had a wonderful holiday season and I hope you had some great times throughout 2022. Thank you for visiting my doll site. It will be interesting to see what 2023 has in store!
On this Christmas Eve the dolls of Star Valley have been busy wrapping the last of the gifts, enjoying each others’ company and eagerly awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus and his reindeer.
Snow is softly falling upon the little town in Doll Country. Nicki Fleming is wishing for a pair of skis. Courtney Moore wants a rad boombox for her cassettes.
Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate! And Happy Hanukkah too! I hope you all enjoy a lovely day tomorrow.
There is exciting news for the Edwards family. Mrs. and Mr. Edwards are expecting a baby! The whole family is thrilled and can’t wait to meet the new baby. They’ve been busy starting to get things ready for the arrival due around early February.
Samantha, Addy, and Rachel have been trying to stay on top of both their homework and their chores. Samantha and Rachel are both eager to meet their new little cousin and keep thinking of possible names that they suggest to their aunt and uncle.
Here are a couple of photos that I practiced some editing/enhancing on. Sometimes I do simpler enhancing and other times I like to play around a little more with the editing.
I am working on adding the hairstyle tutorials back onto the website and so far have them for:
Have fun looking through them and trying them on your doll(s)! You can also find them under Your Doll Play up top.
Fall has arrived in Star Valley. The days have been starting to cool down and there are plenty of colorful leaves on the ground. Families are decorating for Halloween, many of the children are figuring out what costumes they’re going to wear, and the town is hoping to hold a Fall Festival.
Samantha enjoyed a lovely stroll through the town on her way home from school.
Yesterday I took some photos of Melayne outside. She enjoyed the sunshine and even did a little bit of yoga. Continue reading “Photo Shoot of Melayne”
The Lion’s Pride Pub and Restaurant has recently started selling pizza to expand its menu offerings. The pizzas are wood-fired and taste delicious.
Margaux Benoit recently bought some pizza to bring home for a study sesh that she and her friend, Opal Ortega-Smith were having. Yum!
Today is Gia Natalia Kwan’s and Maryellen June Larkin’s birthday! The two girls had a small joint birthday party for themselves where they enjoyed a chocolate roll cake and candy cups. They had a fun time celebrating their birthdays together.
It snowed today so after work I took Darci and Gretchen outside for a small snowy photoshoot.
