Winter has finally released us from her icy grip. And in it’s wake, flowers and sunshine replace her snowy visage. I couldn’t be happier.
Spring Fling Poppy
Today’s model is Poppy Parker from the Tropicalia convention. She is wearing a Barbie (Fashion Avenue? Fashion Fever? not sure) tank top, shirt included in the Most Sophisticated: Poppy Parker as Sabrina giftset, Color Infusion Rebel Spirit Amelie’s shorts and Endless Summer Poppy’s sneakers. Her necklace was made from some craft chain I found at Walmart, earrings are ooak creations made by me. Poppy’s photo was taken at the Skylands Manor Botanical Gardens in New Jersey a few weeks ago.
It’s All Sunshine And Flowers,
And That’s Alright With Me

Is there anything better than wearing your boyfriend’s jacket? It’s like wearing a hug from him all day long.
Today’s model is Hot Dots Poppy Parker from the 2012 Tropicalia convention. She is wearing Checking Out Francisco’s jacket, Ask Any Girl Poppy’s gloves, Twist & Shout Darla Daley’s sweater & skirt set, Mod Redux Barbie’s tights and Dreadfully Cute Misaki’s boots (with the ankle chains removed). Her photo was taken a few weeks ago in our yard.

It’s Winter. Cold…frozen. Yet unmistakably, beauty abounds. Dangerous and harsh, it beckons like the sirens of the sea….dragging unwitting victims to their doom. Come with me. Let the chill in….
Today’s model is the Ice girl from Monster High’s Create A Monster set. She is wearing her original wig ( it’s been slightly trimmed) and Dot Dead Abbey’s dress, shoes & belt (belt is worn as a headband, shoes have had some straps removed because one broke as I tried to put them on). Her photo was taken in our front yard during one of the many snowfalls this month.

Last Saturday the Fourth Annual Ice Festival was held on Main Street in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Every year, I grab a doll or two and my camera and nab some photos. The local businesses commission sculptures that are placed in front of their stores. Ice carvers create a great chair on site from large blocks of ice on the midway. It’s a nice boost for the local economy as folks duck into the many eateries and shops for a break to warm up during their walking tour. The weather cooperated this year, it was cold (so the melting was kept to a minimum) but brightly overcast with the sun peeking out every now and then. My husband and I enjoyed the sights and unexpectedly met up with another friend who joined us for a stop at Starbucks and hung out for the second half of our photo run. The dolls even drew a few admirers as they posed with the frozen art, and found themselves the subject of several paparazzi. Fun times.
Today’s models are Day Tripper Poppy Parker and The Happening Poppy Parker. Day Tripper is wearing a hat and scarf that I crocheted myself, Dynamite Girls Heart of Glass Aria’s jacket, a Barbie camisole, Crazy Girl Misaki’s skirt, Masterpiece Theatre Giselle’s tights and Eternally Together: Dracula’s Brides Lucy’s boots . The Happening is wearing Lead Singles Lilith’s jacket, Rock Wedding: Rock Steady Romain’s scarf, Checking Out Colette’s blouse, City Girl Imogen’s trousers and Anti-Social Girl Misaki’s boots . Both dolls have had their hair washed and brushed out. Their photos were taken all over Main Street and a jolly time was had by all.
Is Brittle And Frozen
Yet An Icy Beauty

I grabbed this image about a week or so ago…I’ve really gotta catch up….there’s a queue of photos waiting on my attention lately. And the Ice Festival is this weekend! So, everything’s kinda piling up…like snowflakes. LOL
Today’s model is Monster High’s Abbey Bominable – not sure specifically which one and not sure which editions I lifted fashions from to cobble together her ensemble – it’s been ages since I redressed her and my memory is like a cup with a hole in it, ya know. *giggle* Anyway, photos were taken on our porch during a snow drizzle.

Once again, I braved the cold. I braved the swirling snow and wind. I toted my camera and dollie out into last night’s blizzard. It was so darn pretty, if it wasn’t also so finger-numbingly chilling, I’d have trundled out there with about five more dolls that are dressed for the weather and waiting their turn to model. But, alas, it was freezing and I am merely human with a strong aversion to frostbite. So, here we go…
Snow Pretty Abby
Let It Snow
There’s Snow Place Like Home
Today’s model is Monster High’s Abbey Bominable – I’m not sure specifically which one though, or even what all the fashion pieces she’s wearing are from because I must’ve opened up five different versions and a fashion pack to piece her ensemble together. Her photos were taken last night on my front porch during winter storm Nemo. Brrrr!
Through Snow And Wind And Dead Of Night

I love shooting dollie photos in the snow. But why does it have to be so cold?! LOL
Of course, in the summer I’ll be looking back on this weather fondly.
Baby, It’s Cold Outside
A Winter Wonderland
Today’s model is Rocking Ever After Lilith from the W club exclusive Rock Wedding collection. Lilith is wearing a chenille hat & scarf made by me, Hard Act To Follow Nadja’s jacket, Making A Scene Erin’s minidress, Lollipop Girl Lulu’s stockings and Lady Like Amelie’s shoes. Her photo was taken in our yard, days after it had snowed, but before it all melted away.
