The Wall of Ivy?

I found this really cute ivy wall (It's not ivy but it looks like it! Kind of.. Plus I don't know the technical term) inspired by the background of dark green I tried finding a similar colored outfit for Libby. Sorry for all of the pictures of Libby, she is one of the four dolls that I currently have and she was right there. Plus Mia and TM #61 traveled in a suitcase which left black marks all over their arms and they had to sit in the sun with 10% benzoyl peroxide for a while :)  

Every doll I have tried this shirt on looks amazing in it, one of the only green shirts I have by AG and all of my dolls look great in it? Not even a pink shirt I have looks great on every doll.. I finished reading Grace's first book and I love her personality, Mary Casanova is one of my favorite American Girl authors, her style of writing is so fun to read.  
Thanks for looking!,

Libby Travels

Finally a time to post! I know, it's been almost a week and unfortunately for the next week or so posts are still going to be sparse. I have a goal of 2 posts on here and 1 post on Seven Bloggers and Their Dolls but no promises! While on the drive out and after I managed to take a few pictures of Libby and uploaded them. Trying to find nice places to take pictures is going to be an adventure, one that will hopefully be a success! 

She is such a photogenic doll,really. I wish I had bought her sooner! Looking through everyone's pictures of different hairstyles on her really makes me want to take her braid out,  I think I will keep it in for now but I want to try a few!   
Favorite picture?

Sewing Sunday

Hi! This weeks project was another pair of shorts using a remnant of fabric I bought at Joann's back in January and finally I am using it! The reason why I bought the fabric was because it is so unique! The texture is almost snakeskin and feels like fake leather. TM #61 is modeling the shorts along with Grace's Pajama top. I finally added her missing freckles! Now to finish the bottom half of her face :)

How could my dolls never have shorts? They are my new favorite clothing piece, so many mix -and-match possibilities! Also here are a few updates- 
My family is moving, this week we are packing up a truck and driving (for a few days!) to our new house so posting will be sparse this week and next week, I will try to post when I can but just a heads up ;) 
Yesterday (as a very early birthday present) I picked out Grace at the AG store. I looked at maybe 10 dolls and most of the dolls had crazy bangs and the doll I was going to go with one of her eyes looked off to the side slightly so instead I picked out this one- 
She has a slight head tilt which I think gives her such a unique facial expression and I love how adorable she is! Her name will be Libby Grace Thomas. Her earrings are darling too.  
Thanks for looking,

Thrifty Find Friday

 Hi! This thrifty find was one I found a few weeks ago, the one I hinted was an awesome deal? And before I tell you what I found here is a few spacers(unless you follow me on Instagram, then you probably have known what I bought for a while!) :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 
Just a background on how I found it, I found an advertisement for a garage sale on Facebook and Felicity's Bed was listed for $50 it was in a tub and I could only see the bed but for only $50 I couldn't resist. Felicity's bed and bedding was something that has been on my wishlist for a very long time, right around when I was gifted Felicity in 2009. The lady who was selling the bed let us come a day early to pick it up and when I looked the bin actually included Felicity's Nightstand and her Clothes Press!! All for $50 ;) This might have to take the AG Doll Find of the Year.  
When I was finally able to take pictures of it today it was already 8pm so excuse the crazy lighting and Kirsten's flyaway's. 

Look at how tall the clothes press is compared to Kirsten!

I can't believe how well-made and detailed everything is! Definitely Pleasant Company ;)
Thankfully the bed does fit in the dollhouse but the clothes press does not, so what I'm thinking of doing is set up a room scene with all of Felicity's furniture separate from the dollhouse. If I do set up a room scene for Felicity's furniture either Caroline gets that room in the dollhouse or turn it into another dolls bedroom. Hey you can always use another bedroom when it comes to AG dolls ;) 
I really love how the clothes press can be such a versatile piece, it could be the wardrobe in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the wardrobe from Beauty and The Beast, or really any bedroom scene.  Still in shock that I actually have it :)
