I’m always amazed by how long it takes me to get back here and post. Life sure does fly by. Here’s a taste of springtime …before it melts into summer. LOL

A Poppy For Spring

Today’s model is Poppy Parker as Corie Bratter from the Barefoot In The Park: The Bratter Lovers giftset (***edited to correct my mistake*** – This is the doll from the Barefoot in the Park: Poppy Parker as Corie Bratter giftset – not The Bratter Lovers giftset, my memory is quite obviously not what it once was, sorry ;)). Poppy is wearing the dress from Barbie: The Look Collection – Party Perfect, The Happening Poppy’s fishnet tights and shoes, a Fashion Royalty bracelet and earrings and a ring from the jewelry section at the craft store (a fancy, solid jump ring). Her photos were taken in our yard on a nice day in early May.

In Spring – Springtime – The Time

Springs Forward.

Springy, Sproingy Spring…

Ugh…I have no excuse for not getting around to the lingering remains of winter doll photos…except that there are just so many.

So, even though it is technically spring, I’m still in winter mode. And I probably will be for a while. What can I say? I still have more winter wonder to share…

The Gang At The Snow Caves

The Gang At The Snow Caves

You’ve already met the models, so see previous posts for the details. But the location is new. After all the shoveling, the snow piles were pretty substantial. Given such an opportunity, I couldn’t resist digging out a cavern and steps for the dolls. When the afternoon sun lit it up, a mess of dolls came out to play. The lighting didn’t last long, but it was enough to grab a few pictures. Woo- hoo!

Winter Still Has A Few Icy Gasps Left

 

A Winter Walk

Since wintertime isn’t going anywhere soon, it’s best to just embrace it. Bundle up and take a walk. Admire the sun shining on all that snow. Remember, eventually spring will steal it all away.

Poppy takes a walk up and down our street.

The snow adds an air of wintry romance.

A good dose of sunshine makes it all look postcard perfect.

Everywhere you go, always more snow.

Best to take it all in before it melts away.

Today’s model is one I used a few posts back, Foto Fab Poppy. Her photos were taken on the street in front of our house, on a sunny day in early February. Yeah, I’m about a month or so behind – just trying to catch up. :)

Put On Your Coat,

Grab Your Gloves And Hat,

Slip On Your Boots,

Bundle Into Your Scarf

And Come Take A Walk With Me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Slow Melt

The snow is still piled up all over the place, but it is slowly melting down. We’ll just have to enjoy it before winter subsides to spring.

 

Today’s model is no stranger, you saw Lilith in the last post here. But she’s buttoned up her jacket, snuggled into her scarf and continues to brave the great, frozen outdoors.

The Icehouse has melted. In the next photos, not much remains.

The world is still wrapped in winter white, but for how long?

Lily’s photos were taken all around our yard on a sunny winter day in early February.

Though Snowy Signs Remain,

Winter Will Soon Surrender To Spring.

 

Still playing with the Ice House…

Solitary Snowy Solace

Solitary Snowbound Solace

Today’s model is Wild At Heart Lilith. She is wearing an open-ended ponytail hat crocheted by me, Dynamite Girls: London Calling Kyu’s coat (I love this coat!), FR2 Modern Sensibility Dasha’s tank top, Urban Outfitting Nadja’s trousers, Integrity Toys boots (from one of the Model Behavior girls?) and a pair of gloved hands (not sure who they originally belonged to, really). Lily’s photos were taken in the ice house built in our front yard, in the morning on the first day of February.

I love how the ice house sometimes acts like a light box, diffusing and amplifying the sunlight. The cold had me sneaking in and out of the house to warm up and didn’t lend to spending time changing poses, but I do love the shots I ended up with. Fun times. :)

Ice And Cold.

Cold And Ice.

Sometimes, My Friends,

It’s Very Nice!

Put A Lid On It

A roof has been added to the ice house. Yay! There was trepidation for fear of a collapse, but it was unfounded. Some wet snow was used to seal the joins, and it turned out surprisingly solid. Woo-hoo! Onto the photos…

Snuggle Buddies Cruz & Poppy

Snuggle Buddies Cruz & Poppy

Today’s models are Poppy (…yeah, you saw her yesterday…but today she’s brought a friend) and London Calling Cruz from the Dynamite Girls collection. Cruz is wearing his original trousers, a scarf that I crocheted for him, turtleneck and boots from My Generation Chip Farnsworth III and a Color Infusion: Style Lab Fashion Experiment 5 jacket. Their photo was taken inside the newly renovated Ice House in our front yard on the last day of January.

Come Freeze With Me

Come Freeze With Me

Today’s model is the hair workshop Poppy Parker doll from the Tropicalia convention. She is wearing a hat and scarf crocheted by me, a shirt from a Ken fashion pack, a Fashion Fever tunic top (all you see in the photos is the polka-dot ruffled bottom of it), Dynamite Girls: Chill Factor Aria’s skirt, Style Mantra Eden’s tights and a pair of Only Hearts Club doll’s sneakers. Her photo was taken in our front yard within the ice walls that were constructed during our deep freeze of a winter.
