Did you see that? That flash? Yes, that was June flying by!! Wow! July is here and I am so excited.

Thanks for all the great photos this week – time to show them off!

This is Maggie’s Moxie Girlz Avery doll.

Gail’s Little Miss Matched Artsy Girl named Balwinder (Pronounced Bell-winder) Here she is with her artist model sharing a hug. Isn’t she just darling?

Emma sent in this photo of her doll Lilly who enjoys playing outside.  More photos of Lilly at: http://agfun.thewrightfamily.name/2012/06/summer-photoshoot-with-lilly.html .

Morgane from Bear, Dolly & Moi sent in some adorable photos of her daughter’s dolls ready for summer in their new swimsuits and with an Ana White Adirondack chair, during their stay-cation.

Lindsey and Molly are enjoying a day horseback riding and caring for Penny and Patriot. Susan has always wanted the American Girl stable, but since it was so expensive she decided to make one herself.


From Ava – It was really warm today so I brought Kit outside for her summer photo shoot. I thought she looked beautiful next to these flowers so I had to take a picture in her new summer outfit which is, the shirt from Kit’s skirt set from AG, Build a Bear trousers and a purple bunny clip for her hair.

From Madelon – My older daughter is taking a week long sewing class. Last night she made the AG doll a pair of sleep shorts which I think are super cute. I paired them with a tee shirt from the New York American Girl Place purchased on-line. The silver wording and sparkles match the pants pattern.

AGlover’s McKenna made herself a hammock from a toy boxing ring.

From Shannon – I just got my daughter Emily a doll Emily for her birthday. I love taking pictures and she wanted me to do a collage of her dolly. Emily is a high functioning autistic little girl with PTSD and TBI. She is in love with this doll and wanted me to do a collage for her room of places she’s been and where Emily has gone with her. She is a Madam Alexander Doll 18″ She is from the fashion Boutiqe at walmart.In this picture Emily is smelling the flowers. Emmy loves the outdoors and she wanted her dolly to smell the flowers like she does.

My name is Agnieszka and I am from Poland. I have been reading Doll Diaries for a few months now and I like it a lot. In fact, I start every day from visiting your blog. Thank you for sharing your photos, stories and ideas about dolls. Today I’m sending you a photo of my favourite doll, Rose (I renamed her, it’s Erin, Carpatina). She’s absolutely beautiful and I just love her. I got her in May after a long, long waiting. In the photo she’s on her first walk in the town where she lives now. I hope she’ll like it here in Poland. At the moment I’m waiting for Veronika from Carpatina. She’s going to be my birthday present. Seems to me I’m getting addicted to Carpatina dolls. I look through their catalogue over and over again and I want more! The dolls are just lovely with their delicate, sweet faces. I’m making secret plans to buy Julia next.

The very talented Amanda is at it again – check out this super cute hammock she made for the dolls using a placemat! See all the details at http://onebigcanvas.blogspot.com/
