This morning we came back from spending almost three weeks at the coast and although we're only an hour inland, it's about 6 degrees centigrade cooler here than down there.....and I don't do cold!!! Anyway, I unpacked all my stuff and then had a bit of 'dolly time' before getting back into the swing of 'home stuff'.
Olive, my JerryBerry, has the usual shiny face that these dolls come with but I don't really like how it looks in photos as the surface of her 'skin' creates a bit of glare, so I carefully covered her eyes and then gave her face a coat of Mr Super Clear Flat and I'm very pleased with the result. Her face is now matt and looks so much better in photos......although I have to say, poor Olive doesn't look any happier, does she?
I also changed my Mini Fee Rheia's wig because the brunette mohair one was not so great. I'm trying out blond for a while, although I still feel that she should be a brunette!! You can see in these photos where I've removed the black dots at the corners of her mouth....I'm much happier without those!!
I also had some nice dolly packages arrive whilst we were away so I had those to open. Rheia, above, got some great brown Mary Jane shoes which are handmade by a lady here in Spain.
My Blythe girls and Olive received four pairs of very pretty tights and some tiny pink socks. I've not tried those on anyone yet but the fabrics are great...I'm sure the girls will love them!!
And finally I received four tiny wigs that I'd ordered from Kemper Dolls in the US. I wanted them for my little Elfdoll Monnaemi Sisters. I bought three Heidi wigs which have two long plaits and one which is supposed to be like a little page boy style. The plaited ones are nice and I'll take some photos soon, but the other one is horrible, the wig cap is so weird, it's like as if it's already been stretched out of shape and is way too big for the little 2-3 inch heads that it's designed for. Oh well, another wig to be banished to the wig box and unused!!!
So that was my day....!
