My GOTY Collections~ Grace Edition

Hiii! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. There’s been so much going on, this is the first day I’ve stayed home in days! But, I’m here bringing you a new series on my blog! *celebrates*

After each GOTY doll retires, I will be showing you what I got from their collection. I’ll have to do a few this year since I have a few GOTY dolls, but I think it’ll be something fun to do and plus, it’s always fun knowing what people have in their doll collection, right? ;D

  
This is everything I got last year from Grace’s collection! Yep, it’s all clothes! While I did love her entire collection, I didn’t end up getting any of her accessories, which is totally fine! I loved her Baking Accesories, but maybe I can get them on eBay sometime :)

  
 Here is Annika modeling Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit! This is one of my absolute favorite outfits of hers – and probably just in general! I love the colors and the style- so, so cute!

  
And obviously, I got Grace (although she was renamed to Riven-Delle)! SHE IS THE MOST PHOTOGENIC DOLL ON EARTH!!!!! *dies*

  
Ahem. Sorry about that. But seriously, isn’t her hair amazing? Like, come on, those highlights! :O (also, I couldn’t find her charm bracelet at the moment, so that’s unfortunately not shown…)

  
Here’s Caroline in Grace’s Travel Coat! This has to be one of my favorite pieces ever! I use this coat so much, I think at least one of my dolls is always wearing it!

  
And (haha, I almost revealed her true identity to all of you XD ) here is JANE (yes, Jane… *smirk*) modeling Grace’s Opening Night Outfit! Again, I couldn’t find the headband, so that’s not shown either. UGH! I literally JUST saw it yesterday and now it’s gone! *sobs over the loss of the lovely headband* Anyways, this dress is gorgeous!! And those SHOES!!!

  
Time for bonus pics! πŸ˜€

  
I shadowed Annika with the black side of my reflector – dark and beautiful :)

  
  
Awesome camera + miraculous reflector = beautiful picture. In case you didn’t know, I got a reflector for my birthday and it is AMAZING!! These pictures would have been so much darker without it! 

  
Glitter! πŸ˜€

  
Now I’m using the gold side of my reflector- see how the lighting changed? :)

  
Well, that’s all for today! I’ll be back soon – hopefully to show you my dollhouse along with an announcement! πŸ˜€

What did you get from Grace’s Collection?

Discouraging Words~ A Photostory

Hi everyone! I got to thinking how it’s been a super long time since I’ve made a photostory, so today I set aside some time to make a short photostory for you all. I hope you like it! :)

  
“Aren’t these guitars great, Dallas?” Eli asked with an excited smile.

  
“Yeah! That was awesome of mom to buy them for us!” Dallas agreed.

  
“Oh so this is where all that music is coming from.” Lana observed as she walked in the room.

  
“Yeah, mom bought Dallas and me some guitars! Aren’t they cool?” Eli asked.

  
“Oh, sure. They look cool, but how do they sound? Go on, play something, Eli.” Lana urged her brother.

“Well, okay.” Eli agreed and strummed a few notes on his electric guitar.

  
“Hm. That wasn’t so bad.” Lana said, not sounding very impressed.

  
“Your turn, Dallas. Play something.” Lana ordered her brother. 

“Yeah, come on, Dal!” Eli urged him.

  
“Well, I don’t know…” Dallas said, not feeling very confident.

  
“Ha! I bet you don’t even know how to play!” Lana sneered.

  
“I do, too!” Dallas defended himself and placed his fingers on the strings and began to play.

  
When Eli heard him, he felt sorry he had encouraged him to play. He just knew Lana was going to pick on him, but when he looked at her, she seemed to be smiling. He wondered if perhaps she was enjoying it. 

  
Dallas strummed the last chord and looked at Lana who had her nose up in the air.

  
“That was the worst thing I have ever heard in my entire life. I can’t believe mommy wasted her money on a guitar for you! You can’t even play! She should have spent that money on something that could actually be played well by somebody. Like a piano for me!” Lana said full of disgust.

  
“It’s not a waste! I just can’t play very well yet!” Dallas shouted angrily.

  
Lana leaned over and said, “Dallas, you will never play the guitar well because you don’t have the skill it takes to play it.”  

 
When Lana had left the room, Eli tried to cheer up his brother. “Aw, don’t worry, Dal! Lana always says things like that to everybody. You’ll learn!” Eli encouraged him.

  
“No, Eli. I think she’s right.” Dallas mumbled as he set his guitar down. Eli frowned and decided it would be best to leave Dallas alone for a while. 

  
After about ten minutes, Jocelyn walked in the room. “Hey, Dallas! What are you doing?” She inquired.

  
“Nothing.” He replied.

  
Jocelyn sat on the floor and gave Pepper some love. Then she said, “So I heard mommy got you and Eli some guitars. Why aren’t you playing it?”

  
“Because I can’t. And, well, Lana heard me play and she said I’ll never be able to play well.” Dallas explained.

  
“Ooh, I see. Well, have you ever played the guitar before today?” Jocelyn inquired.

  
“No, this was my first time.” Dallas answered.

  
“Well, look, you can’t expect to be the best guitar player ever after just 5 minutes of playing. And that goes for anything. If you’ve never done it before, how could you know how to do it perfectly? Just give it some time. Keep practicing and some day you’ll be so good that Lana will wish she had never said what she did.” Jocelyn said.

  
“I guess you’re right… Thanks, Jocelyn.” Dallas said gratefully.

  
Jocelyn smiled and said, “No problem.”

THE END

Arent the guitars so cute? I got them at The Dollar Tree a few weeks ago! I think they’re perfect for dolls, but I just wish they could hold them more realistically. Oh well, it still works great! :)

Do any of your dolls play the guitar?

GOTY Swap~ A Photoshoot

So the other day when I posted the photoshoot of Julie, I asked for suggestions of who I should take a photoshoot of. Julia suggested Jess and Peace suggested Kanani, and also using Lizzy’s suggestion for using more than one doll in a photoshoot again, I bring to you GOTY Swap! πŸ˜€

I always loved shots like these. I think they’re just so cute! :) And do you see now why I called this photoshoot GOTY Swap? πŸ˜‰


I think they look so adorable in each other’s meet outfits!! Kanani in Orange, Jess in blue- agh! πŸ˜€

Kanani is so beautiful! <3






Jess is so adorable!!!


I didn’t realize I took so many of Jess… Oopsie! πŸ˜‰


IMG_7958

Yes, they’re both barefoot. I thought it matched their look πŸ˜‰

Β 
Aren’t they adorable?! πŸ˜€

I hope you liked the photoshoot! :)

Psst! Emma posted the next part up Sadie’s Hope last night! Be sure to check it out by clicking here :)

Masquerade~ Part 7

IMG_7824
2 weeks after the proposal of marriage from the prince at my front door, I found myself walking in the palace, myΒ palace gardens with a wedding ring around my finger. How was I supposed to refuse such a generous offer? All I had to do was marry him and my mother and I would be saved from poverty.

IMG_7825
So I married the prince. And here I am, a princess.

IMG_7827
Any normal girl would feel delighted and honored above all to be a princess, but not me. I didn’t love the prince and, though I knew he was trying, the prince didn’t love me either. All I wanted was to return home with my mother and for everything to go back to the way it was before Frederic began to interfere with our lives. But at least my mother was taken care of. That was the important thing.

IMG_7828
“Liesel, may I speak to you for a moment?” The prince, or I should really say, my husband, called from behind me.

IMG_7829
I turned to face him and said, “Certainly. What is it?”

IMG_7831
He motioned for me to come to him, so I did. “Are you alright, Liesel?” He inquired. I stared at him a moment. I could tell him that I was miserable and felt very alone, but I didn’t. Instead I simply said, “Yes.” Jeremiah raised his eyebrow with concern. “Somehow I feel like that isn’t true.” He said skeptically.

IMG_7833
“Please forgive me, but I would really rather be alone.” I said as politely as I could.

IMG_7834
“Very well. I will see you at dinner.” He sighed and went back inside.

IMG_7835
I closed my eyes, trying so hard not to cry. I couldn’t let anyone see me crying, so I ran far away from any windows or servants.

IMG_7838
And I let the tears pour out. I felt so unwanted, but mostly, I felt unloved.

That concludes this installment of Masquerade! The next part will be up soon! πŸ˜€

Beautiful In Blue~ A Photoshoot of Cecile

Hi there! How have you all been lately? I’ve been pretty good, but feeling kinda meh today, but I’m not gonna let that stop me from making a post for you :)

I took these pictures of Cecile a week or two ago and I just have to say, I love how they turned out! She looks so adorable πŸ˜€

IMG_7467

IMG_7469

IMG_7468

Isn’t is so sad that Cecile is retired now? I mean, she is such a gorgeous doll :(

IMG_7471

She looks so great in Grace’s Travel Coat! I can’t even handle it LOL!

IMG_7475

IMG_7473

IMG_7474

IMG_7472

IMG_7476

Just wondering, do any of your dolls have this weird eye problem? I think her eyes are too far back or something, cause there’s like some weird green plastic-y thing showing…

IMG_7478

Well, that’s all for now! I’ll get another post up soon :)

What are your thoughts on Cecile? Do you wish she was still available?

~Jaclynn~

Here’s a bonus picture!

IMG_7479

I thought this looked too beautiful not to take picture! :)

Masquerade~ Part 1

image
It was the biggest night of the entire year – the Duke and Duchess’ Annual Springtime Ball. I had not wished to go because I never did too well at large parties, balls, or anything such as that, but I knew I had to. If I hadn’t accepted the generous invitation – which was shocking I’d even received one – My family and I would have been completely disgraced. So at the ball, I did my best to engage with some of the other rich girls, but that didn’t go so well. I ended up listening more than talking.

image

As I was listening to the young ladies chat away, I had a strange feeling inside. Something wasn’t right.

image

I looked behind me and saw a young man watching the men and women dance away to the music.

image

Wait a second. I knew that face.

image

My heart was racing and I found it hard for me to breathe. “Calm. Stay calm.” I told myself.

image

“Please excuse me, ladies.” I said politely with a quick curtsy.


image

As I hurried toward the exit, someone tapped my shoulder.

image

“May I have this dance?” That horrid man inquired with a bow.

image

Knowing how improper it would be for me to refuse, I reluctantly said, “You may.”

image

We danced in silence for a moment. I didn’t dare speak or even look at him in the eye. I completely and utterly despised him.

image

“You know why I’m here, Liesel.” He whispered with a threatening tone.

image

“On the contrary, Frederic, I have no idea why you’re here.” I stated, still not even making eye contact.

image

“I need you to do something for me.” He began, his eyes squinted and cruel. He continued on to say, “And you will do it, because I’ve got a bit of leverage, which is something you’ll never have on me.”

image

“And what is that?” I questioned with disgust. “I knew your father. I know what he was and what he did. And I also know how you and your family have tried to hide it all your lives, but the truth has a way of coming out one way or another. Get me what I need, and I’ll keep your little secret.” Frederic offered. I was trying so hard to get the tears in my eyes to disappear. I knew that if I didn’t do what he wanted, he would expose the truth to everyone and our family would be shamed for eternity.

image

Anger and fear boiled up inside of me and I pushed myself away from him and fled from the palace, leaving Frederic standing alone with a scowl on his face.

That concludes part 1!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Day 13 & A Photoshoot of Marie-Grace

Day 13 – Meaning behind blog name:

Well, this is already explained, but I guess I’ll say it again ;D Around the time I started this blog I was pretty obsessed with Little House On The Prairie. I remember going over some names for my blog with my mom for a while and she suggested Little House of American Girl. Naturally I really liked it and it just made sense with my situation, too – I had a small bedroom with a lot of American Girl dolls! πŸ˜€

So, that’s the meaning behind my blog name! Here’s a few pictures since this post was so short and most all of you probably knew all that already LOL!

image

Oh. My. Gosh. This is my first photoshoot of Marie-Grace!!!

image

And let me just say that….

image

….she is SO PHOTOGENIC!!!!

image

image

image

I think this is my favorite picture! πŸ˜€

image

Aaaaaahhh….. She’s so pretty! I think I just found a new love in Marie-Grace! Not that I’ve never stopped loving her, but just that I’m realizing how pretty she is again – if you know what I mean ;D

I hope you enjoyed the photoshoot!Β I really just wanna take more pics, but it’s really hot outside (102!!) and when I was gonna go to another area in our yard I saw huge webs, so I decided to come in πŸ˜›

Oh! And I just wanted to give a little reminder that I posted the next part of Sadie’s Hope a couple days ago, so be sure to check that out! :)

Talk to you tomorrow!

~Jaclynn~

Sadie’s Hope~ Part 4

YAY! It’s here!! If you haven’t seen the last part, or perhaps just forgot what happened, check it out by clicking here :)

Alrighty, you all caught up? Great! Let’s get started! πŸ˜€

image

The woman dragged them down to the basement.

image

“I have something planned for the two of you. You shall never see each other again!” The lady shouted with an evil look on her face.

image

She shoved them to the floor, hurried out of the empty room, and locked the door behind her.

image

Sadie ran to the door and began pounding on it. “Let us out!!” Sadie screamed, but Amy came up to her and touched her shoulder.

image

Sadie flinched at the touch of Amy’s hand and cried, “I can’t be stuck in here again!” Amy and Sadie stood there in silence.

image

“You’ve been down here before?” Amy inquired with a sympathetic look.

image

Sadie nodded, trying to hold back her tears.

image

“I’m so sorry, Sadie.” Amy said softly, not really knowing what to say.

image

“HOW DARE MARK!” Sadie shouted, and banged against the door again.

image

“I know, it was wrong of him.” Amy said calmly.

image

“HOW CAN YOU BE SO CALM!” Sadie cried, tears streaming down her cheeks.

image

“Sadie, believe me, I’m upset, too, but right now isn’t the time to be playing the blame game. Let’s just try to think of a way out of here.” Amy advised.

image

“Fine.” Sadie replied, but then the door shook and it opened.

image

Sadie jerked forward, but Amy grabbed her arm and held her back.

image

The woman appeared in the doorway with two guards. “That one, take her to the train station along with the others.” The lady ordered, pointing at Sadie –

image

– and one of the guards grabbed her.

DUN DUN DUUUN!

Emma will be posting the next part on her blog soon! πŸ˜€

Giving The Horses Some Exercise~ A Photostory

image
Felicity smiled atΒ her beautiful mare, Penny as she led her out of the barn to get some exercise.

image

“Wow, you’re already ready?” Felicity asked with a chuckle. Kaya grinned and said, “Yes,Β I’m sorry I took so long. I just wanted to make sure Steps High was thoroughly groomed first.” Felicity smiled playfully. “It’s okay, I’m used to it.” She teased.

image

The two sisters walked their horses through the small field and chatted away.

image

“Just think, as soon as Luthien, Eowyn, and Sparks Flying get old enough to ride, we can go riding with Saige, Annika, and Jocelyn!” Kaya said excitedly. She always loved spending time with her sisters outdoors.

image
“Yeah! I wonder if Jocelyn knows how to ride already…” Felicity and Kaya pondered this a while, until they decided it was time to mount their horses for a short ride.

image

“FOR NARNIA!” Felicity shouted and Kaya laughed. “What is that?” She inquired. Felicity gasped. “We haven’t watched Narnia together yet, have we?” She asked in disbelief.

image

“No…?” Kaya said questioningly, wondering what other movie she was going to be getting herself into.

image

Kaya and Felicity had a great time that afternoon with their very best friends – their horses.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi! Oh, my goodness, it was SO hot outside when I took these pictures! And windy, so it was hard to balance Kaya on her horse without a saddle LOL! I was disappointed when I went outside and realized the lighting wasn’t that great for taking pictures, and then when I came inside I looked out the window and the whole area I was taking pictures in got shaded…. πŸ˜•

Okay, so a bit of exciting news……. ELLA COMES HOME ON SATURDAY!! YAY!!! πŸ˜€ There will definitely be a post about her on that day! πŸ˜‰

OH! One more thing! I added a new page called “Meet Jaclynn”, so be sure to head over there and check it out! :)

Who is your doll’s best friend?
