Riven-Delle’s head was turned by the enchanting sound of a guitar strumming not far from where they were. She realized that the person playing looked unmistakably familiar and found herself in the middle of a big problem. Her head told her that it wasn’t wise to go up to a stranger and talk to them, but she had done it once with no harm done. Surely Samantha wouldn’t approve, but Riven-Delle felt that this boy needed help and that he wasn’t really a bad person.
Without saying a word Riven-Delle headed in the direction of the guitar player with Samantha very hesitantly following behind. She absolutely hated it when people kept her from doing some serious shopping.
“Hello….,” he said hesitantly.
“I’m sorry – aren’t you Weston? The boy from the diner? I was certain I’d seen you before,” Riven-Delle said, though she already knew it was him.
“Yeah, I guess that would be me. You got some cops hiding out nearby to take me in?” He asked, his eyes shifting around.
Riven-Delle looked down at the blue bowl with white polk-a-dots scattered around it. This was not a bowl a teenage boy would choose to use – especially in public. She couldn’t help wondering if perhaps it was stolen… Weston was definitely not living in a stable home – maybe he was even living on the streets.
When the song ended, Riven-Delle clapped and told him how great it was while she got her purse out to drop some money into his bowl.
“You play so well, I wouldn’t be surprised if someday you become famous!” Riven-Delle said as she dropped her money into the bowl.
Weston reached into the bowl and held the 20 dollars in his hand as he watched the girls leave. The kindness Riven-Delle had expressed meant so much to him – no one had treated him that way since he was a young boy. Except for his friend, of course, who was lying sick in bed and in need of some decent food. Thanks to Riven-Delle, he could give him just that.
Do you play an instrument? I’m learning to play the keyboard and I’m loving it! 😀
Just a note – do not talk to strangers. Riven-Delle is a bad example. XD
Also, another note – Riven-Delle and Weston are not a couple and I don’t plan to make that happen. They will just be good friends. 😉
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?
Okay, I took like a gazillion pictures at the store of like EVERYTHING, so this is gonna have to be split into two or three parts! Crazy, huh?! So this part I’ll be focusing on the Beforever Characters
Here’s the table with all the food. I didn’t eat any of it…. What is wrong with me?! I think it’s because I felt stressed (we got there like 10 minutes before 10), they were just about to have a drawing, and I had gum. So yeah… I really wanted a muffin, though! LOL!
So true! 😀
Here’s the drawing – you had a chance to win Maryellen’s TV or a Bitty Baby!
Here’s Maryellen’s display!!! YAY!!
I love her collection SO much!! Like seriously – I want a lot of it! LOL
Doesn’t that spot look so empty?? I feel like there should be more there than just Maryellen herself!
Here’s her diner!! AAAHH!!!! It’s SO amazing!!! I can’t tell you how much I love it. I don’t care how much it is, I will buy this someday! 😀
Here’s my Maryellen visiting Grace’s La Patisserie
I just now realized that those are the only Maryellen photos I took…. What is wrong with me?! Ugh!
Oh! LOL! Here’s another picture of her diner! Isn’t it amazing??? 😀
Here’s Julie’s display
I love this coat so much, like oh my gosh! :O
I also really love this dress! It’s so cute!
What do you think of her new pajamas? I personally like her old ones better, but I think the new ones are still cute
Samantha’s Gazebo…. Aaaahh! So pretty!!!
The coat… :O I have a thing for coats, jackets, vests, pretty much anything that you wear over something LOL!
Oh, gosh, AG!! Why do you have so many amazingly huge furniture pieces that I want???
Samantha’s display is so full!! She has so much stuff!! (why not make Josefina’s collection a little bigger….)
Kit has a lot of cute stuff in her collection! I love the desk, the typewriter, her outfits – I really should get some of her outfits…
Like this one!! OMGOSH isn’t it the cutest?! 😀
*Sigh* Poor Josefina. Her collection is so small. I feel like she’s so neglected….
Yay! Rebecca!! 😀
This dress is so amazing!
Alright, Addy and Josefina really need some more attention! Their collections are so small compared to the others!
Well, that ends this part! I’m sorry I didn’t get more pictures of Maryellen’s collection… Maybe I was too into looking at her stuff that I just forgot to take pics or something. Sorry about that 😕 Ummm…. I just realized that I have no pictures of Kaya or her collection…. I don’t even remember seeing her there! I must have walked passed it or something… Hmmm….
Anyways, it was a really fun day and it was so great to meet Mya, Amelia, and Rebekah! 😀
Look for part 2 of “Masquerade” coming later today and I will post the next part of the store photos tomorrow! Bye for now!
Hey guys! Today I got around to making a photostory and then I cleaned my room, so I feel really good right now! Plus, I’m listening to the Tangled soundtrack, so that’s always awesome! 😀
Now, let’s get on with the photostory!
“Samantha? Do you have to do that right now?” Riven-Delle asked her sister who was busy cleaning out the closet.
Without looking up from her work she replied, “Yes! If I don’t do it no one else will and it needs to be done!”
With a sigh and a shake of her head, Riven-Delle leaned back in her chair and tried to concentrate on what to write in her writing journal.
Clara entered the room and spotted Samantha cleaning out the closet. “Um, Samantha? Didn’t you just clean out the closet yesterday?” Clara inquired.
“Yes, but it has to be done again because no one ever puts things away properly!” Samantha stated in frustration. Clara knew very well that the purses at least hadn’t been touched at all since she cleaned the closet last, but she didn’t press the matter for she knew that Samantha loved to clean more than anyone.
“Are you okay, Riven-Delle? You look tired.” Clara observed.
“Oh, no, I’m just having trouble concentrating.” Riven-Delle replied with a slight grin.
“Oh, I see. Well I’m just getting some paper, but I’ll do my best not to distract you.” Clara said with a smile.
As Clara grabbed a sheet of paper, it slipped and lightly scraped her finger.
“Ow!” Clara yelped and then let out a quiet hiss. “What happened?” Samantha asked as she instantly turned her head at Clara’s cry of pain.
“Oh, it’s nothing. Just a paper cut.” Clara reassured her sister.
As Clara picked the paper off of the floor, she looked at her finger and saw that it was bleeding.
Clara instantly closed her eyes and turned away while taking deep breaths. “Clara, what’s wrong?” Riven-Delle inquired as she jumped out of her chair.
“I’m feeling faint.” Clara said softly.
Riven-Delle and Samantha rushed to their sister and helped her to the chair.
“Alright, put your head down. You’ll be okay.” Riven-Delle comforted as Clara did as she was told.
“What made you get all faint so suddenly?” Samantha asked.
“I looked at my finger and saw that it was bleeding.” Clara explained.
Clara sat up once she was feeling better and said, “You know, Riven-Delle-
-I hate paper cuts.”
So yeah, this photostory was inspired by the paper cut I got yesterday. When I saw my finger was bleeding I had to instantly look away cause I felt close to faintness. I wasn’t nearly as bad as Clara, but since she faints a lot, I thought it could work with her LOL!
Now, for Day 21 – Favorite recipe:
Hmm…. This is hard. I guess I’ll just go with the Funfetti Cookie recipe! They’re SO good and my brother, Jordan LOVES them! I can’t wait to make them this winter! 😀
Do you ever get faint when you see blood?
Hey everyone! Yesterday I cleaned out under my bed (my doll’s bedroom) because I’ve been having a ton of baby spiders in my room lately (*shudders*) and the other day I noticed a few under there, so I freaked out… Anyways! Back to the subject of this post – I set up my dolls to where they’re all doing something and I thought it’d be fun to show you what they’re up to
So here’s the overview! Some of them are hiding behind the curtains, though LOL!
Over here, Dallas is getting Pepper out of his bed so he, Eli, and Jeremy can play with him. Rapunzel is asking if she can play with him, too and Lissie is trying to get a book, but Dallas is in the way. You can kinda see Clara back there just hanging out
Bella, Ellie, and Snow are being as sweet as can be playing with Licorice
Belinda is helping Cecile with some school.
And Merida wants Belinda for something…. Probably to help her climb something 😛
And of course Caleb and Kendra are fighting and screaming at the top of their lungs. Kristoff is trying to pull Caleb off of Kendra and Annika starts to intervene. Mickey and Minnie are sad and scared by their fighting as usual, too 😉
Kanani, Riven-Delle, and Annika had all been talking, but then stopped instantly when they noticed Caleb and Kendra fighting. Anna was gonna talk to Riven-Delle, but also stopped when she noticed the fight.
Janie looking over at Caleb and Kendra. They attract a lot of attention to themselves whenever they fight 😛
Julie, Kaya, and Samantha are talking
And oh, dear! Marie-Grace was talking to Saige (who is painting) when she was supposed to be practicing her singing, so Lana told her to stop talking to Saige, Marie-Grace got mad, and now Jess came over and is trying to tell Lana that it’s okay for Marie-Grace to talk to Saige. My goodness!
Josefina and Kirsten were about to bake and are now trying to persuade Rebecca into helping them, too. Addy was talking to Kirsten
Jenna doing some things at the vanity
And Kiara and Caroline are chatting
Do your dolls have a usual thing that happens every day? Like how Caleb and Kendra always fight? What do your dolls like to do?
To my surprise, many of the people believed I was the lost princess, and the next morning, several of them turned out in front of the palace yelling “We want Allie!” “Give us our rightful queen!” “Allie! Allie!”
“Stewardess, you see who the people want! Don’t you want to give them who they are asking for?” I shouted, so she could hear me over the people’s loud voices.
The stewardess looked on at the people, her eyes wide. She clearly didn’t know how to respond to this.
“I don’t care who they want! You have no proof that you are the lost princess!” The stewardess shouted back.
“Actually, I do. You do know about the royal birthmark, don’t you?” I asked.
“Yes, of course! What of it?” She asked, sticking her nose into the air.
I climbed up the wall and pulled my hair out of the way. “Look at my neck.” I told her, and when she did, her eyes grew wide again.
“This is ridiculous! It doesn’t mean anything! You could have just put a mark on your neck!” She yelled.
“You’ll have to do something far greater in order for me to believe you are the princess. Tell me what your name was when you born!” She demanded.
I froze. I hadn’t even known I was given a name when I was born! The only name I’d ever known was, Allie.
“Ah ha! I knew you weren’t the princess!” She yelled and walked away.
I slowly turned my head to the crowd. “Why wouldn’t Josh have told me my real name?” I wondered.
Corinne and Monica looked at me, their faces bewildered.
I came down and asked, “Corinne, do you remember my dad saying anything about my real name?”
“No, I don’t think he mentioned it.” She replied.
“I thought so.” I sighed.
“Well, maybe he doesn’t even know! Maybe your mother died before she had a chance to tell him!” Monica suggested.
“Yeah, that would make sense. My mom died shortly after I was born and my dad wasn’t home.” I said. Then I looked around for Adella. “I’m gonna see if Adella knows anything about my real name.” I said.
“Adella, do you know what name I was given when I was born?” I inquired.
“No, I’m afraid not. But perhaps you could check the library! There are many books in there about the kingdom’s history that I bet even the stewardess doesn’t know about.” Adella suggested with a smile.
That concludes this part! Look for the GRAND FINALE coming next!! 😀
I was having a heart-attack last night (not literal, I was just SUPER excited)!!! My dad was asleep in the other room and I was trying SO hard not to yell and scream over everything!! LOL! 😛

Okay, so are you all ready to see this awesome release?! Good! Let’s get started! 😀
Rebecca’s Seashore Set $48- I’m sorry, but I don’t really like this. It looks way too modern to me, and those boots literally look like boots that girls wear today. I will say that the chair is cute, though
Alrighty, ready to move into MAG? Me too!!
Shimmer & Lace Party Dress $30- This is SO CUTE!! I love the color and how lacy it is! 😀
Pretty Pink Tutu Set $28- Again, it’s cute, but I won’t be buying either of them You can also buy both of them in a set together for $62 😉
Sunshine Gardening Bench Set $68- This is adorable!! It made me realize that I don’t have a doll that likes gardening yet! Hmm…. I wonder what doll I want could fit that role…. 😛
Now onto the Bitty Babies!
Now for books!
Doll Pets $24.99- THIS LOOKS ADORABLE!! I love this!! 😀
Alright, so that was the entire release (except for the girl’s sized clothes 😉 )!! I am VERY happy with this release!! And A LOT of new items have gone on my wishlist!! I think my favorite item in this release is Samantha’s Gazebo. I can not get over how amazing that is! 😀
What are your thoughts on the release? What was your favorite new item?
P.S. SO sad that Josefina got NOTHING new
The other day, I got an OG outfit and I knew that the doll to wear it first would have to be Samantha! A few of the pictures are edited, but most of them aren’t
Samantha looks so pretty in that lace coat!
I LOVE the headband that comes with this outfit!! I am a big headband girl 😀
She’s so CUTE!!
I think it rained the other day without me knowing it. I was very surprised to see wetness 😛
I really like this one
Isn’t the sky so beautiful?! I was so loving the clouds!! 😀
Well’p, that’s all for today! Look out for a post of my dolls decorating, coming soon!
Have your dolls decorated for Christmas? I’m running late this year. Five days until Christmas and I still haven’t decorated my bedroom! Last year I decorated before Thanksgiving! 😛
Oh, my goodness! Tomorrow it will mark one week exactly until the Hillside Farms Holiday Craft Fair! I must admit that I haven’t been doing much crocheting for the past couple of months, cause in my head I think “Oh, there’s plenty of time!” and so at night I would just sit and watch movies while doing things on my iPod…. Ugh, so bad. Now that it’s a week away I am feeling majorly stressed! I still have so much to make and so little time! Eeks! 😕
Anyways, I didn’t want to fully neglect all of you for a week, so my mom gave me the idea to post about my preparation for the craft fair! I thought it was a great idea, so here we go!
I usually bring seven of my dolls to the craft fair each year, but since I have SO many new costumes (I’m planning to have every single main Disney Princess dress), I decided that I need to bring them all (and my friend Emma is loaning me one of her dolls to be Merida. Thank you SO much)! But that was a problem. I needed to find a way to make sure they all could fit, and also have some room to lay my other products on the table. So today I got the table out and made all of my dolls fit on top! YAY! 😀 The ones in the back are going to be raised up, too, but I need to buy some more risers, so that’s why they aren’t even with the others 😛
Then after that, I needed to see if our big 30 gallon bin, would hold all 15 dolls, and it did!! But I need to buy a new one for myself because my mom uses that bin for all of her stuff 😉
Now I am off to crochet! This whole next week is going to be crazy busy, but I promise, you will still see some posts from me!
Bye for now!
I’ve noticed a few blogs have been taking family photos of their dolls, and I’ve always wanted to do that, but because I have so many, it would take HOURS to get them all ready, so I never did it. But- it is time to stop being lazy, LOL! 😛
Back row, left to right- Addy, Josefina, Felicity, Kirsten, Rebecca, Kanani, Marie-Grace, Caroline, and Saige.
Bottom row, left to right- Beth, Annika, Kendra, Cecile, Caleb, Samantha, Jeremy, Kaya, Mickey, Jess, Minnie, Clara, and Janie
I took a family photo of all of my AG dolls (including my sisters) on Saturday and I think it turned out great! It was so neat to see them all set up together I was going to do a family photo that included everyone in my doll family, which would include MyTwinn, Disney Toddler Dolls, and other baby dolls, but I didn’t have room anywhere to get a picture of all of them! So maybe some day I’ll get a family picture of my non-AG dolls 😉
Who is in your American Girl Doll family?
