An Update from Samantha

Hi Everyone!  I have been sharing this blog with so many other dolls, I thought I'd better post, so you wouldn't forget about ME, the Very Important Doll that lives here!  Leah asked for her brown wig back, and she looked so sad in a borrowed wig, that I had to give it back to her, after all, it was a custom order just for her.  So while I was looking through the wig bag, Gabrielle mentioned to me that she had a wig that she'd tried, but then decided that she wanted to keep her original curly blonde mohair wig.  She found the one she was talking about, and we agreed that it works pretty good, too.  It is human hair.  So, a blonde, french, human hair wig - chic, non?

I've picked up a new hobby, dog whispering... when you live with animals that are so much larger than you are, you need to learn how to keep the peace and make friends.  Here's a photo Jen took of me this afternoon.  I am congratulating Josie for snatching the sunny spot on the kitchen floor before the other dog or cat spotted it.  She told me that she really likes the scent of my shower gel...she said I smell like Christmas cookies, and I told her that I am almost out of my holiday shower gel, and will be back to normal in a day or two.

I still have my bunny.  She is my favorite stuffie.  I would take her everywhere with me if I could.

Do you have any living animals at your house?  Do you get along with them well?  Do you have a favorite stuffie or other treasure that you'd like to take everywhere?

Want to play dolls?

Want to play dolls?, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

It is way too cold to play outside today, and all the grown ups are busy watching football on tv anyway.

Louisa wants to know if anyone wants to play dolls with her. You can be Felicity, and she'll be Kirsten.

Louisa in the sunshine

Louisa in the sunshine, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

This is Louisa. She is a Kidz N Cats doll by Sonja Hartmann of Heart and Soul. The Kidz are distributed by the Madame Alexander company in the US and Canada. Louisa is all vinyl, with jointed shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and neck. The newer Kidz have 11 joints (wrists are articulated, too). The bodies are blushed and they are very high quality dolls. Louisa's eyes are described as grey-brown, and I love this shade - it is more unusual than the blues and browns. She is a bit slimmer than the American Girl dolls, and her feet are a little smaller, but I think she will be able to share some of their clothes and shoes, to add her her wardrobe. Louisa loves her little kitty. She also likes candy and playing and reading story books. She is trying to decide which stories are her favorites! You can see more photos of her in my Flickr photostream!
