Do you know what I have really missed these past few crazy months? I have missed reading all the other doll blogs and sharing them with you! I finally got a chance to just chill out yesterday and I had a lot of fun catching up on all my reading. There were so many great posts, but here are some of my favorites.

Rhonda at Living a Doll’s Life got the new Tyson’s Ice Cream Parlor for Samantha and shares a detailed look at her unboxing it.  This really is a neat set and AG put a lot of detail and quality in to it.

School is out which means you probably have more time to play with your dolls right now. How about giving your doll space a bit of a makeover. Anna has a doll decor design challenge for you – create a Rustic and Cozy space for your dolls. You can see what she did in her post at Doll It Up.

The more I see photos of the English doll brand Bonnie & Pearl, the more I am thinking I need to add one to my collection next year – especially after seeing Swish and Swirl’s gorgeous photos from Christmas in Singapore. There is something oh, so sweet about these dolls’ faces. If you have one, I’d love to get your feedback on this brand – they look very high quality.

Congratulations to Karen for celebrating her 4th year blogging! That is a huge accomplishment and I am so glad that we got to meet this year. I also can not imagine Doll Diaries without Karen – I started Doll Diaries in 2006 and Karen joined the team 3.5 years ago. 

I am SO loving Julie’s Charlie Brown/Snoopy pajamas in Julie Newman’s Groovy 70’s Christmas post that Sharry put together. It is like a trip down memory lane!

The photos of Jen’s doll’s baking are just so lifelike and fun! All of their treats look yummy!

 

When it comes to doll celebrities, Inky is the original! She recently celebrated her birthday in doll style and oh, did they look like they had fun. The whole fox theme was done down to the last detail and as always, her photography was beautiful. 

We LOVE side by side comparisons! Jaclyn at Little House of American Girl did a nice job comparing AG Historical Felicity, GOTY Saige and the new MyAG #61 – all three are red heads with the classic mold face. Take a look – what similarities and what differences do you see?

Of course, there were SO many more fabulous posts, but these were my favorites. If you had a favorite blog post this week or have a favorite doll related blog to share (yes, it can be your own), feel free to share it in the comments below.

Have a wonderful Saturday!
