Lilacs and a tribute

A few years ago when my father passed away
my husband and I planted lilacs all along
the side of our yard,
they were my fathers favorite flower.

This is the first time they have actually had blooms,
when I noticed them I started missing my dad so much,
the following photos I did with my Ellowyne Wilde doll
as a tribute in memory of my father.

This ones for you daddy, I love you and miss you.

Those New Red Shoes

Yesterday I got a package in the mail.

So exciting, I love getting packages, but what was in this one?

It was from a friend in my doll groups and whom I met on Facebook.

I was so excited when I opened the box and inside were these fabulous,
red shoes for Ellowyne Wilde.

PB Ray is her name and she has a 3D printer and is now making doll shoes
and selling them in her etsy shop.
Recently she decided to make Ellowyne Wilde size and sent me a few pairs.

Here are the Red Shoes I received:

img_20170518_165657img_20170518_212737

Yes, I had to make a new dress to match them,
of course my Ellowyne Wilde girl didn’t mind at all,
but aren’t these the most awesome red shoes.

Here’s some more photos:

 

 

PB Ray will be adding these and many other colors to her etsy shop soon.

You can also contact her if you would like a specific color, oh and did I mention they are
very reasonably priced, if you have ever shopped for shoes for your dolls,
they can be very pricey.

Here is a link to her Etsy shop.

Kentucky Derby Hat Contest Winner

A couple weeks ago I entered a contest in a doll group.

The theme was:  Those Kentucky Derby Hats,
you had to take a photo of your Ellowyne doll wearing a fabulous Kentucky Derby style hat.

I thought, hey why not, so I got out a hat and began decorating it.
Found a gown I had made,
grabbed my Prudence doll and some props and here is my entry:

img_20170506_211533

Don’t you just love the peeps, and that long red braided wig.
A park bench, tea cup and saucer, with a peep, a few flowers, feathers
and a horse.  Photo Complete.  This was alot of fun.

The winner was to be announced that Sunday.
I figured I wouldn’t have a chance, so many creative and wonderful entries.

So while I waited I decided to do some more photos and a little story:

img_20170506_173153

Prudence arrived at the Kentucky Derby, it was a gorgeous sunny day and
she had to go and meet all the horses.

This big white horse just caught her eye and she introduced herself to him.

She did not know someone was watching her and taking pictures.

img_20170506_173244

She gazed in to the big horses eyes,

img_20170506_173331

And gave him a kiss.

Okay, Sunday was finally here and I went to check who had won the contest,
I was so shocked, I had won second place.  Wow, I never win anything, usually
I am the one doing the contest.  I was so excited and here is the prize I won.
A blue and silver dot, Wilde Imagination bag for my girls.
Ellie grabbed that bag up so quick and let me take her photo.
Course you know me, I had to make an outfit to match.

img_20170511_151637

She had to wear a pink wig in the first photo, because the weekly theme was pink.

Isn’t that just the most adorable bag she won?

The next photos she wanted to wear a blue wig to match.

img_20170511_151748img_20170511_151857

 

 

I want to say Thank you to the girls that hosted this contest.  It was alot of fun.

As She Gently Weeps

A while ago I heard a song on the radio I hadn’t heard in so long, part of the lyrics were, As she Gently Weeps.

Well here is my version of those lyrics, created in to a dress for Ellowyne Wilde.

I used a black french lace with silver and black embroidery.  The top of the bodice is lined in white to prevent staining, armlets and long veil completed the whole set.
