The best kids animated movies from the summer of 2013 are available on DVD and Blu-ray just in time for Christmas and holiday gift giving. I saw them all in the theater and will buy them all for my own grandkids to watch when they come over. If I had to pick a favorite it would be Despicable Me 2 but you can't go wrong with either of the Disney Pixar films either.
This weekend I made this little lamp for my Beach Cottage dollhouse. It's a playscale doll house, meaning for 11 1/2" dolls, the size of a Barbie. I don't collect Barbies, it's just a familiar size so I include the term to help people relate. Most of my dolls are a similar height. This lamp doesn't light up, it's just for decorative display. I had the shells from a trip to Mexico and the rest of the stuff I found at a Dollar Store. Check out my easy peasy instructions on my Diary of a Dollhouse blog.
Ellowyne Wilde got to try on her first change of clothes today. It's the Bay Breeze ensemble and includes coordinating double breasted jacket, skirt, blouse socks, arm gloves, and a hat. She's not wearing the hat here because I don't want to damage her hairdo. It looks very intricate and I know I couldn't replicate it. She had a mishap while putting on the hat anyway so we will just leave that on the chair or find a hat rack. See more photos on my blog at.....
The lovely Ellowyne Wilde dressed to kill in her Grand Despair gown. Despite the fact she's always bored to tears she manages to wake up every morning and dress in the finest fashions. I've read most of her outfits come from thrift stores, but I imagine her dear departed mother made this one and Ellowyne saved it. I took lots of pictures of her and the details of her hair and dress to post on my blog. You can read about it if you click the link below.
Ashlynn Ella and Hunter Huntsman decided to come home with me today. I've been working on the beach cottage dollhouse and they wanted to sit and discuss their future plans as a couple. Given that they are both from different fairy tales it's doubtful if they have a forever happily ever after. They sure are enjoying their time together now though. You can see lot of pictures of the happy duo along with their close up features, clothes and accessories in my Ever After High Blog if you click the link below.
