My collection keeps growing...

My newest girl, Celeste - UB Jac, models Tonner's Song of the Evening ensemble:

And a sundress and pair of shoes made by me:

I was very proud of the fact that I got her to stand up with no aid!

A pic with the dresser my sister carved and stained for me:

And a couple with an old but newly discovered bench that I originally got for the American Girl dolls:

Everybody wants something from me...

After last week's post about the kimono, Amyera is justifiably upset.

Amyera: How come only the raven-haired dolls got to try it on? What do you have against us blondes?

Snow-White: You're new here, honey. I've been here a while. Miss CC has an unnatural prejudice against blonde dolls. I think she had too many Barbies as a child. And everyone knows the redheads are her favorites!

Snow-White: Don't you agree, Cecelia?
Cecelia: I'm more concerned about being in the flat-footed minority, personally. Do you realize I can only wear like, three pairs of shoes in this place? I mean, Hello? Miss CC makes shoes! 

Djali: You think you've got it rough?
Snow-White: Oh here we go.
Djali: At least you guys can wear all the clothes. I only have this one dress! And I'm lacking in the shoe department, as well!

Hey, at least you all have heads...

*all run screaming*

Kimono and lotus dresser

I don't have an Asian dolls, but I was inspired last week to make a kimono. It started life as a 20" square handkerchief, and I'm rather pleased with the result.

I got all of my raven-haired dolls to take turns pretending to be Japanese for me.  :p  Who wears it best?

Nandini - Convertible Basic Jac:

Rose-Red - Raven Jane:

Milana - UB Raven Stella:

or Djali - Emphatic Antoinette:

I'm also taking this opportunity to show off the awesome chest of drawers that my sister carved, stained, and varnished for me.  Isn't she talented?
