Here are Tess and Maggie, enjoying the crisp fall air. They aren't exactly looking in the same direction, but I loved the coloring in this photo. :) I wanted to do some photos with these two since they were the ones that started it all! ;)
Tess and Maggie: BFFs :)
Of course, Maggie insisted on climbing the tree after I'd taken a few photos. Tree climbing is one of her favorite pastimes, and she hasn't had the chance to climb one in a while.
Little Gal's Belle doll got in on the tree climbing, too. (Little Gal set up this pose all by herself.) ;)
After hanging upside down for a while, Belle decided to sit like a lady.
And here are some Jess pics! I'm still working on her character and deciding if she's a good fit. I think her name may end up being Ava (pronounced "ay-vuh"). We'll see if it sticks. That's been the hardest thing with this doll. She's just "Jess" to me, no matter how hard I try to come up with a different character (which, for me, is a huge part of the fun of having a doll).
I've been toying with the idea of making Jess/Ava and my Karito Kids doll Elena (fka Pita) sisters. I know, I know, one's from Mexico and one's Japanese American, but I've always thought that Elena looked like she could have some Japanese in her background somewhere. What do you guys think?
And speaking of Elena, I'd forgotten just how stunning and photogenic this doll is!! I definitely need to take her picture more often. :)
Ava thought that climbing the tree looked fun when she saw Maggie doing it, so she decided to give it a go too. :)
She has such a beautiful face. :)
And here's Hailey!! Poor Hailey tends to get overlooked on photo days, so I thought I'd bring her along this time. :) (Wow, and I never noticed how uneven her glasses are until this picture. See how much bigger the right lens is than the left? Oh well...I guess paying only $1.97 has its down sides as well as its benefits.) ;)
Hailey enjoys the flowers by our front door.
Sweet sisters. :)
I've missed taking photos so much. It was great to get out and shoot these. I would have done more, but right after this picture it started to rain. I guess I timed it just perfectly. ;)
Like I mentioned in the title, I do have some more eBay listings up. I had a couple of things that didn't sell and a few more things I wanted to get rid of. I'm trying desperately to declutter (and pay a few bills while I'm at it). ;) These will be my last listings for the year. I know from experience that selling in late November or December is NOT a fun experience. I'd like to be a pleasant person for my family this holiday season. ;)
You can view my listings HERE. This time around I've got a G1 newborn baby My Little Pony, a lot of project Barbie and LIV dolls (sorry, lots of naked doll pics in that lot!), Kaya's meet dress, a TLC Disney Princess and Me Belle doll, a Build-a-Bear teddy, a Disney Store Minnie plush, some PVC figures, a Happy Family Midge doll, Consuelo's Folklorico dress, and more.
Hope you all have a great week. I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away!! Doesn't this year seem like it's flying by?
Talk to all of you again soon. :)
Since I replaced my current header, here's a copy of the previous one:
