I know I am  not alone when I say that Sunday Showcase is my favorite post of the week – it it just so much fun to see the creativity and talent our readers have! Thanks to everyone who sends pictures in each week – you really are appreciated and for those of you who haven’t sent in photos before, don’t be shy! We’d love to see what adventures your dolls have been up to. (You don’t have to use your real name either!)

From JourneyGirlAdventures – Savannah is the butterfly fairy.  As she sits in a field of dandelions some butterflies come to join her.  She smiles and giggles as the butterflies surround her, one even landing on her finger for a moment.  The butterfly’s feet tickle as it walks on her hand.  She smiles, lifts her hands, and away they butterfly flitters.  (Savannah is a “Maru and Friends” doll.  She is wearing the “Petal Fairy” outfit.)

From: Shannon, Samantha loves climbing trees even though Grandmary would probably not approve.

From Tony – Jane and her family are away to the beach before Jane’s home schooling starts again next week. She loves looking for sea shells to add to her collection.

From Cordelia – Rose is visiting Marisa in her cabin in a National Park for a sleepover. I suspect that the two excited dolls won’t be getting much sleep! Meanwhile, Katherine has stayed home to prepare a surprise for Rose’s return.

From Kristen L.– Molly and her new puppy enjoying Julie’s egg chair! The puppy is the funky terrier set I found about a week ago at Costco. They also had a sheepdog and a pomeranian. The terrier doesn’t have a name yet, does anyone have any suggestions?

Kit is laying in the meadow enjoying the last days summer! From Hope (www.allthingsdollcreations.blogspot.com)


From Shelly – a peek inside her doll Sweet Soda Shop.

From Noelle – I went to the park yesterday and brought McKenna along to take some pictures. Here is one of my favorites.

From Shelby-Grace: I entered The Doll Wardrobe Blog’s Summer Fashion Design Challenge! I’m Entry #27.

From Samantha – Emily, Kit, and Nicole are excited to move into a new home! I got this cabinet from IKEA and it works great because you can move the shelves! Also, It comes at a great price of a little more than $100! However, with the number of shelves I have, 18″ inch dolls can not stand in them. You can adjust the shelves to your liking though! These work great as a doll home! You can add doors to them too if you don’t want to see your stuff all the time!!
