Good morning everyone! It was so nice to be able to just relax this morning and catch up on my reading.  Here are some of my favorites for the week.

Seriously, how cute are these little converse style doll shoes made by Kaitlyn over at the American Girl Fan blog this week. She even shows you how to make a pair for your own dolls. 

A few weeks ago, Agnieska introduced us to a new brand of dolls from Spain – Vestida de Azul – and now our friends at My Doll Best Friend are carrying the line. Aren’t these little faces adorable? They are 13″ tall and I can see them being great friends with the Hearts for Hearts Girls Dolls. For more info, read Vestida de Azul at My Doll Best Friend!

There is a relatively new blog called A Doll’s Picnic that is definitely worth spending some time on this weekend. Not only does she have some wonderful reviews, but her photos are beautiful. You will find reviews on a variety of vinyl play dolls from American Girl, Maru, Maplelea, Via E, Schildkrot and more. Enjoy!

Anna added a new doll to her collection recently – Ivy Ling! Of all our American Girl dolls, I still think Ivy is one of my favorites, too. Since she is retiring soon, if you have been considering adding her to your collection, I say don’t wait! Gorgeous photos as always, Anna!

Our friends at Tonner Doll are having a really fun – and super easy giveaway. It is called Pin 3 to Win 1. Just pin 3 or more pins from their 2014 board on Pinterest and be eligible to win whichever doll or outfit that gets the most pins (and is in stock). Here are all the details – Tonner Pin to Win Giveaway – which ones are your favorites?

Enough relaxing for me! Time to do some clean up in the doll room. I will post the week 3 Camp Memories later this afternoon, too.
