Colonial Chanting Crickets~ A Photoshoot of the Beautiful Samantha (with a very weird & random title)
Hey Ho! Okay, first, I know the title is weird and extremely random, but I thought of the first three words that came to my mind that began with the letter “C” and just typed it, so that’s the strange reason behind the random title. XD
I’ve been feeling that Samantha has been lacking of attention lately, so I grabbed her, curled her hair, and headed outside for a quick photoshoot. I hope you enjoy the photos! 🙂
That’s all folks! I’m very tired… Hence the randomness in this post. I’m gonna go crochet and watch Anne of Green Gables now (the second one- my fave!!) 🙂
Have you watched the Anne of Green Gables movies?
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 🙂
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!!!
What did you get from Grace’s Collection?
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! 🙂
“Well, okay.” Eli agreed and strummed a few notes on his electric guitar.
“Yeah, come on, Dal!” Eli urged him.
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.
“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.
“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.
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?
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! 😀
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? 😉
Kanani is so beautiful! <3
Yes, they’re both barefoot. I thought it matched their look 😉
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 🙂
2 weeks after the proposal of marriage from the prince at my front door, I found myself walking in the palace, my 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.
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.
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.
That concludes this installment of Masquerade! The next part will be up soon! 😀
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 😀
Isn’t is so sad that Cecile is retired now? I mean, she is such a gorgeous doll 🙁
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…
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?
Here’s a bonus picture!
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.
I looked behind me and saw a young man watching the men and women dance away to the music.
Wait a second. I knew that face.
My heart was racing and I found it hard for me to breathe. “Calm. Stay calm.” I told myself.
“Please excuse me, ladies.” I said politely with a quick curtsy.
As I hurried toward the exit, someone tapped my shoulder.
“May I have this dance?” That horrid man inquired with a bow.
Knowing how improper it would be for me to refuse, I reluctantly said, “You may.”
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.
“You know why I’m here, Liesel.” He whispered with a threatening tone.
“On the contrary, Frederic, I have no idea why you’re here.” I stated, still not even making eye contact.
“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.”
“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.
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!!! 😀 😀
Hey everyone! Today I went with Emma to Tom’s Farm and we took our dolls along to take pics of! I only took about 4, but I hope you like them anyway! 🙂
My mom said that I should edit some of the pics, so I did! What do you think of this one?
Jenna and Jess are so cute 🙂
I like this picture! 😀
And this is my absolute favorite! The water was so pretty! 🙂
Day 22 – What I’m looking forward to:
Okay, well obviously….. The MARYELLEN DEBUT!! Like seriously, I’m SO excited for it!! 😀
I’m also really looking forward to being a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding next year!! EEE!!! 😀
Opening some Vinylmation boxes in a few days (I hope I get Kanan, I hope I get Kanan)!
Going to Disneyland! We just got unblocked for the summer, so I’m really excited to go back! 🙂
Aaaaanddd…. Hmmm…. I think that’s probably it for now! Of course I’m looking forward to Christmas and colder weather. BRING ON THE JACKETS AND BOOTS AND HATS, OH MY! LOLOL! Sorry, I’m a little crazy today 😀
What are you most looking forward to?
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! 😀
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!
Oh. My. Gosh. This is my first photoshoot of Marie-Grace!!!
And let me just say that….
….she is SO PHOTOGENIC!!!!
I think this is my favorite picture! 😀
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! 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 😛
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!
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! 😀
The woman dragged them down to the basement.
“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.
She shoved them to the floor, hurried out of the empty room, and locked the door behind her.
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.
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.
“You’ve been down here before?” Amy inquired with a sympathetic look.
Sadie nodded, trying to hold back her tears.
“I’m so sorry, Sadie.” Amy said softly, not really knowing what to say.
“HOW DARE MARK!” Sadie shouted, and banged against the door again.
“I know, it was wrong of him.” Amy said calmly.
“HOW CAN YOU BE SO CALM!” Sadie cried, tears streaming down her cheeks.
“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.
“Fine.” Sadie replied, but then the door shook and it opened.
Sadie jerked forward, but Amy grabbed her arm and held her back.
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 –
– and one of the guards grabbed her.
DUN DUN DUUUN!
Emma will be posting the next part on her blog soon! 😀
