abandoned dock

  • Posted on August 15, 2013 at 5:14 pm

we went up to see mica dam (outside of revestoke bc). as it turned out we couldn’t actually get close to the dam and since i had the macro lens on my camera i couldn’t get any shots that really looked like much, but the road to it was lovely, and there were several neat places to explore where the old highway went in and out of the river(lake?) now that the water level is higher because of the dams. i’ll be posting pictures over the next week or so as i get them uploaded.

here is the first set: eilidh exploring an abandoned dock.
apparently several of the places the highway disappears into the lake make good boat launches, but this one isn’t being used for anything anymore. still i found it rather picturesque. eilidh just thought it was fun! πŸ˜‰

taking a break

  • Posted on March 26, 2013 at 11:34 pm

we had a pretty crazy month here, with a serious illness of one of my kids, so it’s been a while since i’ve had a chance to update, but today we decided it was time for a break and took 4 of the girls on a walk round the lake. eilidh discovered a tree that was filled with holes made (we think) by a woodpecker and just had to explore. she had a great time climbing in and out of the holes. i loved the color of her hair against the bark and snapped a few pictures.

here’s my favorite shot
eilidh checking out giant woodpeckers holes

lucy hiked through the snow and climbed a tree for her shot, all while managing to stay looking as chic as always, though she has informed me that next on her wish list is a black jean skirt!

i never said my girls were practical. aerin also wore dress shoes for hiking and climbing trees!

kiri was camera shy today, but we’re out again tomorrow if the weather holds, so i’ll have to try catch her then.

eilidh gets a new look

  • Posted on January 23, 2013 at 2:40 pm

eilidh got a new faceup recently – actually the same time kiri did- and we have been trying to figure out what to do about her hair since it just wasn’t right somehow. we tried a lot of different red wigs, but just couldn’t find “the one”. then one day we were playing in the wig box looking for a wig for lucy and eilidh discovered an old wig of ellyce’s. it was exactly the right color and length, it just needed some restyling….
eilidh's new look
personally i think it still could use some restyling, but eilidh seems to really like the wild mop head look!

with her makeup and hair sorted out she happily chose a new top to model.
this cherry red sparkly twist collared top is the first one in my new line of tops for littlefees in my etsy store – and it fits the honey delfs and bids too!

i made two of them, so eilidh gets to keep this one.

but there is one more available for sale

everyone likes a parade

  • Posted on September 4, 2012 at 4:25 pm

wovenflame and the realpukis started a parade on doa which has grown and looks to keep growing (or so we hope)
it has spread to a flikr group called dolls on parade and will be a gallery thread on doa as well, with all sizes a types of bjds joining in.

heres what happened today when the mid sized kids got involved….

tiera took it upon herself to announce to the world that there was going to be a parade

becca decided to be a tightrope walker and insisted that digory pull her in the wagon

ellyce is just back from the spa and fancies herself a trick rider. her steed being a typical donkey, was not terribly cooperative.

tiera and eilidh had a bit of a squabble when eilidh decided that she was a lion tamer and was going to tame tiera
im not going to be your lion
tiera – no i won’t be your lion, and you CERTAINLY are not going hit me with a whip!

eilidh – FINE! i’ll pull this “lion” instead.

30 day photo challenge day 3 part 1

  • Posted on December 16, 2011 at 6:30 pm

3. reflections

today’s challenge was unexpectedly difficult. i started off to just do this one quickly as i didn’t have much time. we dragged some large books to the french doors and eilidh clambered up for our first attempt. in spite of all the smudges on the door we did get a reflection but it was disappointingly faint.
out the door
eilidh’s curls were glowing in the sunlight making for a surprisingly lovely picture, but not right for the challenge.

we moved over to the window and she obligingly jumped up. this time the only reflection was of the reflector i was using to enhance the back lighting. definitely not what i had in mind!
only a reflector
further attempts only yielded the same result, so it was time to move on.

which we did, to the other side of the house and a west facing window. since the reflection was so faint in the strong east light i thought moving to the shadowy side might help, and it did – to a degree
faint shadow
this time i could actually see her face in the reflection. it was still very washed out, but i decided that it would have to do, since i had run out of time.

30 day photo challenge day 2

2) a picture of your doll next to a stack of unusual objects that equal their approximate height.

at first i was tempted to measure them against chocolate chips, because everything goes well with chocolate. πŸ˜‰ but then i figured, that in keeping with the one blue-stocking theme, it would be much better to measure the girls against a stack of yarn or books…. ever indecisive i used both! πŸ™‚
how tall am i?
so, one littlefee, eilidh, is equal to 7 partly used balls of yarn or 16 miniature books.
one pukifee, crystalorn, is equal to 4 partly used balls of yarn or 9-1/2 miniature books
one realpuki, smidge, (with wild hair) is equal to 2 partly used balls of yarn or 7 miniature books (or so she claims and who am i to argue?)

…….and beezie (up on top) claims she is the biggest of them all! πŸ˜†

30 day photo challenge day 1

  • Posted on December 14, 2011 at 11:56 pm

i was chatting on doa and someone mention doing a 30 day challenge, which got me thinking. i don’t take photos regularly and when i do i often forget to edit/post them. so i decided to turn it into a 30 day photo challenge. each day i will post a subject and have to take a picture of it. if i miss a day i’ll start again the next (since i’m going over christmas i’m sure to miss some!), but my goal is to do this as consistently as possible. i have all of the days preplanned, thanks in large part to photo game challenges on doa.

if anyone wants to join in, just comment on the posting with your url and i’ll add a link to your blog/site.

so, on to the first challenge:split personality:one doll multiple wigs.

i was going to do this challenge with my jid asa, who just can’t seem to find the right wig. but eilidh said her wig just wasn’t right either and could she please try on some new ones? please, please, please? so here goes…
original
elidlh’s original wig. the color was good but the wig style was kind of blah and matted really easily.

blonde and brown
this is really not her color! and the style which looks lovely on some of the “older” girls just isn’t right on eilidh.

crazy curls
closer, the color is not bad, but the style is not quite there. she might borrow this one occasionally. but i think ananda gets to keep this one.

dark auburn
love this color but the style is definitely too babyish! ellyce gets her wig back ;O)

brown pigtails
not bad, color is good, but it just doesn’t work for me somehow. i think she loses character with this one, she is just too ordinary.

dark brown
she does make a lovely brunette, but blends in too much with my other girls this way.

carrot curls
now that’s better. my spunky little carrot top is back!

straight red
a little more muted red but i think this one suits her too. i think she will probably go back and forth between the last two. my girls all like at least a couple of choices for variety.

failure

If at first you don’t succeed, you are running about average.

that seemed an apt quote for what i’ve been doing lately. i want to get an etsy store up and running but i seem to be running in circles instead. i’ve been making up a bunch of crocheted hats for pukifee and littlefee sizes (sneak peak under crochet) so i decided i should get faces on some of my other kids to give me a wider range of models.

i finally got my littlefee pipi and bid elin done after three days and 3-4 wipes each. i kept getting fuzz in the msc no matter how carefully i cleaned (i want a hermetically sealed room for faceups! :lol:) i’m very pleased with the results but if these had been my first face-ups. i’m not sure i’d have ever tried again.

anyhoo, here is becca (iplehouse bid elin)
becca

and eilidh???
eilidh2
my red-haired freckly girl seemed to cry out for a celtic name so i have tentatively called her eilidh (eh-lee) but i’m not completely sold on it. she still may end up as polly which was her planned name, i just don’t know. any thoughts?
