I hope you had a fabulous week and that you and your dolls had some adventures! It looks like we have lots of great photos sent in from all around the world again this week. Let’s get started.

From Madelon – A fashion icon passed away this week – Lily Pulitzer. My mother wore Lily Pulitzer when I was a girl. I still love the whimsical mix of patterns and use of pink and green. When I received the email of her passing earlier this week, I felt the need to send this photo of our AG wearing a dress made from an actual AG print. Her fashion influence left an indelible mark on us.

From Skylar – Saige riding Picasso in her new outfit.

From Eileen –  Here is a picture of my doll Violet (#42) in Chicago! She has her own blog: www.theamazingworldofviolet.blogspot.com.

From Sophie T – This week, Elizabeth broke her leg… and her great friend Felicity is always there for her, making sure she has everything she needs, and keeping her in good spirits through this rough time.  (Wheelchair and cast are Journey Girl, dress is handknitted from a pattern by Knit’n Play, cardigan is handknitted from a pattern by Susan Seffknit, top is made from a Liberty Jane pattern, and yogan pants are made following a tutorial by Jen Hartman from Peachy Tuesday blog).

From PaperDollWorld – Saige with a fancy braid.

From Diana – During spring break the girls decided to visit Wiiliamsburg, Va. They had read many of the American Girl books about Felicity and always wondered how it would be back in time. The girls went shopping and found a store that reminded them of Felicity’s stories. It so happens that a girl named Felicity was working that day and was even dressed in the 1800 style dress. Felicity showed the girls the homemade jams, the fresh apples and Indian corn. Oh what a wonderful time they had, learning and exploring about the time in the past!

From Rachel – Katelyn is enjoying this year’s beautiful cherry blossoms in our nations capital, Washington, DC.

From Tony – Jane (Marie-Grace) and Elizabeth have been playing dress up in Felicity dresses. Now Elizabeth wants Jane to read her a story.

From Happysuz – My favorite dolls were having a party on their shelf to celebrate my new blog being chosen as a Doll Diaries pick of the week last week!  Cheers!

From Erica B – My Monster High dolls are having “fear-leading” tryouts! Top row left to right: Sweet 1600 Draculaura, Create a Monster sea monster (Nessie), and Picture Day Abbey. Bottom row: Create a Monster Vampire (Elvira.)

From Elly – Meet… April May June (No pun intended, but these are all real names that are common middle names and first names) April-May is Molly’s non-permanent name for her when she goes Modern. Shes not new but I don’t turn her modern often (I usually just put her in outfits that are modern)  I also curled her hair which took less than 2 minutes! (I just wet it, brushed it, twisted it, held it, let go!)

From Anna-Marie –  Chrissa wearing an outfit that I designed (a black shirt from Springfield Dolls that I customized with glitter glue, and a skirt that I made myself), and sitting on the Springfield Dolls flip chair (which, by the way, I LOVE! Best doll accessory I’ve spent my money on)

From Noelle – Julie is at the Aquarium! She likes talk to this fish..

From Laura – A day at the club: Kit’s first photoshoot.

From Julia – Samantha is ready for a party!

From Fiona- Dell is hanging out against a piece of wood.

Also from Fiona- Dell is relaxing on the porch, staying cozy and warm with her {Groovy Girls} coat.

From Cordelia – Katherine (Samantha) has tied back her hair, put on her apron, and taken the flour sifter out of the cupboard. I suspect that she is about to start baking.

From Alyssa – Saige is on the plane and ready for her big vacation!

From Ava – Layla loves to read, in fact, at playtime at school she prefers to read alone instead of playing with the other girls. When she’s older she wants to be a scholar.

Natalie has been hard at work fine tuning her stop-motion skills. Thanks for all the encouragement! This is her latest creation featuring Saige baking an apple pie!
