Alexandria's New Freckles!

After reading Liberty Rain's blog, California Harmony, I noticed her Jess doll had freckles, and on the Throwback Thursday on Doll Diaries, Liberty sent in a picture of her Jess, and mentioned she had used a washable marker to add freckles to her doll. I loved how it looked on her Jess, so I went digging through my art supplies to find some brown washable markers to try to add some freckles to one of my dolls. I found some old Crayola Fine Tip markers, and I tested them out on my Madame Alexander My Life As doll, Alexandria, and I think they look adorable!  

What do you think of Alexandria's new freckles?

Traveling With Izzy

I'm starting something fun here on Oh My Dollies! I noticed one day that my Happy Meal Isabelle would make the perfect travel doll--she's tiny, just the right size to slip into my pocket or zip into a pencil case. She also has non-removable clothes, so no tiny accessories that could fall off or get lost, plus she's just adorable and so fun to photograph! So I decided to post Mini Izzy's adventures as she goes on day-to-day activities with me :) Be watching for more posts about her adventures soon! 

Molly's Silly Pictures

Who doesn't just love playing with the Photo Booth setting on your laptop? I know Molly and I do ;)

My very first giveaway!

My friend, Linda, makes custom doll clothes, and kindly gave me one of her dresses to review/keep, and if you are the lucky winner, she'll send you a brand-new dress, identical to the one I'm reviewing here. The winner will also receive a pretty matching hair ribbon, just like the one Josie is modeling today. The shoes are for photo purposes only, the winner will not receive any shoes. 

The color is so beautiful, I love the purple polka dots in this print!

I just love the bow, it adds something special to the outfit :) 

I love the cute little sash and the bow in back :) 

I love all the handmade details in this dress, the seams are great, and are sure to stand the test of time.

It closes in back with Velcro.

The dress is so twirly, Josie loves to spin in it :) 

It's great for relaxing in the grass on a summer evening :) 

And for climbing trees ;)
