We are getting an seasonable amount of rain here is the South. It's been raining almost constantly for the last two days, a mix of feather light drizzle between bouts of torrential downpour.

The backyard is literally a swamp. Now I know I'm living in the swamplands but it's not supposed to start where my patio ends. Though I'd be lying if I said I wasn't loving how overcast and dreary the world it. An overcast day is like natures softbox for photography.

I was gifted this bag and I have to say it's become my most favourite prop. I just love it! I'm really sad I don't know where it's from.




I'm getting ready to open for commissions soon {time and date here} and wanted to let you guys know I'll be adding hand and foot blushing to the services!

You'll be able to send along one set of hands, and one set of feet, per head. The price will be $25 USD for one set of hands, or one set of feet. If you send both a pair of hands, and a pair of feet, the price would be $50 USD.

Most importantly, you won't have to purchase slots for these! Having a faceup slot with me will automatically grant you a foot/hand spot too!

All you have to do is put them in the box along with your head when you ship to me. Of course you don't have to send any extra body parts along if you don't want to, it's entirely up to you whether you'd like to opt into having them done.

It also doesn't matter if you have a Carte Blanche slot or a custom slot, you can still send hands and feet. Although Carte Blanche slots will have their hands/feet blushed to match the style of faceup selected, which means you might get black nail polish if you've ordered Gothic, or hot pink if you've ordered Colourful, and the basic French Tip for Natural. Basically, I'll make sure your head matches your doll's appendages.

You can view the listing in my shop {HERE}




I repainted my Dollmore Mio, she's just a floating head these days since I got rid of the F60 body (which I'm now thinking I might want to repurchase - how annoying!).

I love this head, it has a slightly different look to most BJD. I adore her round face and rosebud lips, but I've got to say I kinda lost where I was going with her faceup and want to start again!

I hate when things don't work out because it takes a lot of time and effort to screw up LOL. But I guess that's the price I pay for not having a well thought out plan before starting. Although the reason I repainted her was to keep my brush skills fresh so it won't hurt to start over. The mental anguish tho. D:


The hubby and I are really terrible at letting the guys at Teavana talk us into buying lots of things we don't need. I can't speak for my other half but I'm very susceptible to anything with an alchemical/magical vibe and tea falls neatly into the category of mystical-things-requiring-accessories-that-steam-and-smell-good-while-looking-like-potions. My inner Severus Snape becomes weak at the knees over such things.

Anyway, one of my favourite teas is the Youthberry Wild Orange Blossom blend. It's smells like sweetness and summer afternoons, and has a wonderful berry tang taste, but most of all it looks amazing. I can honestly say its prettiness makes up at least half the reasoning for bringing it home.
