Spring Cleaning

My girl decided to do a bit of spring cleaning today!

I love Blythe. My husband bought my one and only girl last year, and I have so much fun taking pictures of her. I had to have the "Friendly Freckles" as I love red hair ;) But the best part is dressing her up and making little scenes with my Re-ment. I don't believe I will ever really grow up. I was reading Skunkboy Creatures blog the other day, and could not believe the new girl that is coming out soon. I must some how come up with some moola fast. I mean look how beautiful her hair is

I'm not sure when she makes her arrival, but I need to figure out how to make a few hundred. Not sure how that will pan out, but maybe I will get that lucky customer who wants a big order. It is such a beautiful day today. The weatherman says that we could get up to 70's tommorrow. Nuts! But I will take the warm weather when I can. I went to the book store last night and was searching for some good reads for my son. We came across "Wind and the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame.

I have started reading along with my son what ever book he reads, and this one is getting me so excited for spring. All the little critters. I am very much inspired to start sketching forest critters. Another book I bought was "The Borrowers" by Mary Norton. I'm pretty sure I read this when I was little, mainly because there are minature things involved. I can't wait to read this one with him as well.
Children's books are so magical. I was an avid reader as a kid. I always love to imagine and create the story in my mind just the way I thought it all went down. I think today I may have to do some sketches.


  1. Your Blythe is gorgeous i really want one! Wind in the willows is one of my favourite books :) have a lovely evening xx

  2. Thank you so much Alexandra! I know Blythes are too much fun! A bit expensive as well. That is why I have one. I know I'm so love Wind and the Willows! Have a great evening as well!

  3. The Borrowers where one of my favorite growing up! I have to admit, sometimes when I misplace something small that I just know I left in a specific spot, I still think that the Borrowers took it :) Hopefully my books of stamps, thumbtacks and paper clips will be making them excellent little houses!
