Whoah! Wait a minute, how is it that February is almost done! It has been a busy few months already this year – you can tell by all the great reads I keep finding.

I discovered some new blogs this week and some posts on old favorites – here are my picks for the week.


I just discovered “A Peek into the Pantry” and was immediately pulled into her site. What a FUN concept!! She explores new recipes inspired by American Girl characters and stories through out history. I want to try this recipe for Kaya’s Salmon Chowder and Cecile’s Pralines, too!


Emily at Herstory AG recently added Ivy (one of my personal favorites) to her doll collection and took some gorgeous photos for her debut. I just LOVE the Valentine’s cards she and Julie exchanged, but not as much as I love the fabric and the style of Julie and Ivy’s dresses.


One booth I missed during my whirlwind Toy Fair tour was Lottie. Luckily for you, Ashley at Confessions of a Doll Collectors Daughter was there too (Yes, it was SOOOO great to meet her and her Mom and get a few minutes to chat), and she has posted her Lottie report. Be sure to check out the rest of Ashley’s Toy Fair reports – she has been much quicker in getting her posted than I have.

Mega Bloks CA 1

Have you heard about new licensing venture that AG has with MegaBlocks? If not, take a look at Poppets & Posies post featuring some of the sets scheduled for release in Canada first and coming to the US later this year. Too much fun!!
