Millie and Little

I found this old photo of Millie and Little Duck when they were small. This was taken three years ago. It has been two years since Millie was killed and I still miss her. I wonder if Little still misses her? I know no other duck has ever replaced her best friend.

I made the new kid some overalls yesterday and a checkered shirt.

Rosen Lied Sage

Rosen Lied Sage Boy 
He arrived last week and I have finally had a moment to photograph him. This outfit came with him. I will be making him some new clothing soon, hopefully. His name is Percival.

Spring has come very early around here this year! The crocuses are up, the trees are budding, my daffodils are opening up and my grass is getting green. Today is was 80 degrees. It's very odd!

One Outfit, Three Dolls

I made this outfit and realized that it can fit on lots of different dolls, from my 12" Bethany to my 10" Rosen Lied Beige! The dress is made of a lightweight cotton print (don't remember where I got it! I've been de-stashing and it was in my peach cubby). The shrug is from 100% wool and is from a Froggy Duds pattern.

And on April (Beige, Tuesday's Child from Rosen Lied).

In other news, I have bought a Rosen Lied Sage Boy and he's on his way. :)


Well, I've been having a mental wrestling match for a few weeks about Pinterest.  If you read Pinterest's terms of service closely, if you pin something to Pinterest, you are agreeing that  YOU have the copyright on what you're pinning and that you give Pinterest the right to resell the image.  I find this troubling.  I have just checked and a lot of my photos are repinned on Pinterest.  If there was no clause that gave Pinterest the right to sell the images, I would not have a problem with that.  I don't mind that there are people out there who like my photos and want to collect them into a collage.  I do mind that Pinterest, without my permission, now has the right to sell my images to anyone they want to and make profit off that without me ever even knowing my images were submitted to Pinterest.  So, all that being said, I am deleting my pinboards till Pinterest gets this figured out.  Here is a great article on the topic.  Click on the graphic to visit the article.

Update early April:  Pinterest did change their terms to say they are not selling anyone's images.  I still can't get motivated to check with every single person who owns the photos that I want to pin, though, so I probably won't be participating in pinterest any longer.  I took down all my boards.  I don't mind if you all pin my images, though, now that they will not sell them.

I've been wishing for more Rosen Lied dolls lately, so I decided to photograph Arina. She's a pretty doll and looks nice in the red wig.

Ringo playing

Ringo is such a cute kitty! I made her a new little red dress. I will likely list it on etsy after photographing it on a few other dolls (Ellery Kish, Alice Cherry Blossom).
