Sunday Showcase May 20

Thanks to all our readers who have shared their photos with us this week! Here are the Sunday Showcase entries for this week.

McKenna's twin

Jasmine’s McKenna was reading Doll Diaries with her and spotted our Mckenna doll in the Fairy Garden, and was surprised to see her twin sister! Jasmine loved how McKenna looked in the pictures, so she dressed her McKenna in the same outfit and hairstyle! Too cute!

doll sleepover

Dharma’s dolls are ready for a sleepover! From left to right – A Pleasant Company Kirsten, AG Chrissa, AG Felicity, and Claira from Springfield Dolls. Did you notice their matching bunny slippers from Springfield Dolls?

Moxie Girls

Ava’s friend brought her Moxie Girls dolls over for a visit.

Cecile's Parlor Table

Madelon’s family gave Cecile the Parlor Desk from the American Girl store at Tysons (DC) for Mother’s Day.

Merida Australia

Merida’s a hit in Australia too! Catherine sent in this photo of the Brave, Merida and Angus playset she found in Big W, which is the Australian version of Wal-Mart.

Hayley just started her YouTube channel and shares a photoshoot she did with her doll Kirsten.

graduation gown for dolls

Heather was the winner of the Graduation Gown for dolls a few weeks ago. Her daughter’s Our Generation doll looks great in it!

Springfield Doll

Sharry sent in a photo of her Springfield Collection doll Julie getting ready for bed. She is wearing replica Julie pajamas available from She is holding her 1975 Holly Hobbie doll from Knickerbocker toys. Sweet dreams, Julie!

Happy Birthday Kit

In honor of her birthday, Kit is wearing her reporter’s dress and holding one of her chickens. The backdrop is pink, but she probably wouldn’t have preferred it. I hope this year she has the Robin Hood Party she wanted many years ago. Thanks to Madelon for this beautiful photo.

We love seeing what you make for your dolls, adventures they have, and great finds. If you would like to submit your photo for next week’s Sunday Showcase, here are the basics:

  • Email your photo to (it must be your own photo – do not take photos from someone else’s site and submit them as your own)
  • Put “Reader Photo Submission” in the subject line (I get a ton of email & this will make it easier to sort through)
  • Resize your photos to 540 pixels wide (if you can)
  • Make sure you include a description or caption for your photos

PS – I am going to be gone at Megan’s State Meet for gymnastics today so this is the only post for today. I will try to check comments from my phone as much as I can, but no guarantees. Also, keep sending in the Lights, Camera, Dolls entries and I will get them all posted tomorrow.
