What a week!!! Mother Nature sure wasn’t nice to us on the East Coast this week, but the sun is shining now and I plan on getting out and enjoying a beautiful day. But before I go anywhere I wanted to share this week’s spotlight sites with you.

By now you know that each week, I will pick anywhere from one to three sites that have something new, interesting, or otherwise noteworthy and share them with you. If your site is a spotlight site, be sure to grab the code at the bottom of the post so you can show off your fabulous-ness! If you know of a site that we just have to feature, be sure to let us know in the comments or send an email to share@dolldiaries.com.

 

1. Dolls4Jessica Designs

Dolls4Jessica Designs is the blog of a doll clothes seamstress but what caught my eye this week was her photo essay about her niece receiving her very first American Girl doll for her 8th birthday. She got Kit and based on the photos, she is thrilled!! Kit is a great first American Girl doll – her hair is easy to work with and her stories are relatively easy to read – and there is the movie, too.

2. My American Girl and Me Blog by Caelen

Cecile and Marie Grace dolls Caelen is a long time Doll Diaries reader and active commenter plus she has her own blog where she shares all her own American Girl doll adventures.. She recently went to American Girl Place New York and took a TON of great photos – including some of the Marie-Grace and Cecile dolls close up as well as the different displays at AGPNY. Personally, my favorite photo is of the pet apartment – I think we may need to make one of our own.

3. Special Dolls Online Blog

Special Dolls Online Blog is a really cool site for learning more about doll  history. For example, in one of her recent posts she talks about dolls that are at the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, VA (might need to take a field trip) and how some dolls were used to smuggle medicine for Confederate troops past Union blockades. Very interesting!
