New pics taken the other day

I have new pics I took of another gown from the Le Jardin des Fleurs collection. I have about 3-4 more gowns to do and this collection will be finished. It would have been really cool to take a picture of them all together-but I don’t have enough BJD dolls to support that. Unless I dressed the boys up!LOL Don’t think they would care for that.

Here’s Regan in Jardin des Roses

I do want to get another girl though. Just trying to decide on which one and save the money for her. I have so many other things going on right now-for one I am going to need a new car soon. Although I am having a hard time finding on of those I like too. I really want another Saturn-but who knows what’s going to happen with that.

Fleur de Lys….

Finished another 18th century gown for Katara. This one is in a beautiful yellow and white brocade looking print with flecks of gold. I did it in a Curaco style jacket over a simple petticoat. I love the accent of blue velvet bows everywhere too. I also tried my hand at felt hat making. And am very pleased with the results.

What have I been working on?

A Mischievous Alice
Alice is up to something

My daughter thought this ensemble looked like a funk goth styled Alice. She even suggested that I do a whole funky goth Alice in Wonderland collection. Hmmmmm

I just listed it on evilbay

My camera arrived……

and I have been having fun with it!! So different than my old one since this is the first time I have had an SLR. It’s kind of like learning all over again. I also got Katara back with her new face up. Lyn did such a great job of covering up her stain around her mouth. So here are some new pics-with the new camera of course.

And I had to add one of Regan:

Not having much luck with the ebay thing. Both gowns above are listed at the moment- Regan’s for the second time. Guess I’ll have to go back to sewing for the 16″ girls a little more.

I ordered a new camera!!!

I finally decided and ordered a Canon EOS Rebel xsi! Should be here Monday and I can’t wait for a new toy. Katara came home almost two weeks ago and I’ve been wanting to take pics of her so -as soon as it comes- pics will be taken.

I also decided that I think I’ll give ebay a try again. I think I’ll list one of the gowns tonight- maybe try to take a few pics outside if the weather ever clears up around here although I think we are due for a little rain. I’ll probably just have to try some inside here. The ones I have aren’t bad and I can probably make them work. So wish me luck with the ebay thing- we’ll just have to see……
