Strollin' Around Grandville

My mom had the kids for a full 24 hours so I got to spend hours on dolls! I have still avoided editing any bridal shower pics, so here's a little somethin' while you wait.

Zinna strolls through Grandville park...

On her way to her new office space right next to her house! (office still in progress).

 Ian skates by, wishing he could have a girl like that.
 Unnamed Sulu doll watches the record store while Ian's away.

 Valentina and DJ Nadia get cozy.

Morgan hangs out at Cafe Josephine with Penny and Sooki, telling an animated story about an ex-boyfriend.

"See that's why I love Johnny. He's just not the cheating kind."   
Collective eye roll from the table.

Isha and Melody Lane take tea at the cafe.

"Melody, it's been 2 years since the divorce. Stop dressing like a prude and embrace your sexuality again."

"I know just the thing that can help..."

Meanwhile, across town, the skanks get ready for the Bachelor party...

"Ahhh, mischief managed. Just a quiet night at home by myself? Not if I can help it."
Hanna macks on Sooki's Johnny Tan!

"Oh don't look so surprised. You wouldn't have me any other way."



  1. Meanwhile, across town, the skanks get ready for the Bachelor party...

    Thank God I finish drinking my tea because I would have burn myself!

  2. Love the update. Poor Sooki the last to know. Love the park dio. Love the skanks too..LOL

  3. Hanna is something else! Lol! I so love that sofa that they are smooching on. Loving your dio pics!

  4. I love Grandville! Ok, so the park came out REALLY nice! Lovin' the ATM machine and I think the park bench has character. I like the decor of Zinna's office, very cool. Sigh, I wish I had the cash to fork out for Isha...she's stunning! Nadia is my girl, I think she's found her match. Valentina, doesn't seem like the clingy type like the other chick (sorry, forgot her name).

    Ah...Sooki, so young, so naive, LOL. Like Chris Rock said..."A man is only as faithful as his options..." so girl, put down that Chai Latte and go over Hanna's house and take away his "option." LOL...

    Hanna is the girl you hate that you love. :) And "the skanks..." priceless, LMBO.

    More, more, more...

  5. See how nice the park bench looks in the park. I love the park. Maybe my doll was thinking of your park when she had me buy the bird bath thingy. Love all the goin's on in Grandville. That Isha is gorgeous. Newsflash Sooki. Most men cheat

  6. Thanks guys! I know I don't do many photostories these days so I gotta keep you interested in these lives!

    Poor Sooki. But she's only 16 so she has years and years of getting a clue. Ha! I love that Chris Rock quote Tracy! Hahaha!

    Vanessa I can't wait to see your park! I was drooling over that birdbath. I am missing out on Marshalls, Ross, etc.

  7. I really love that park walkway, so fantastic! You've got quite the awesome town set up here!!

  8. Wow! Thanks for the tour! :) Love the record store, and the unnamed Sulu doll! Yowza!

Doll Dyeing

So I had this BJD friend with this sad doll that I just fell in love with.  I knew they had issues bonding and I knew that baby had to be mine. I told her to let me know if she ever wanted to sell. She didn't do that but listed her anyway. (I thought we were cool, man.)  I was very lucky that the first person who wanted her stepped aside.  I thought if I lost this girl I would have a breakdown.

You see, she was very special.  She had a history.  Here's what I can gather:  she was purchased by this shady ass dude in the hobby. Everyone knows he is shady. 
So he hired a faceup artist to paint the face and give her scarring. He never explained that he wanted raised scars, not gashes in the resin.  I've seen the proof that she wrote up the agreement for this guy and the work was just GORGEOUS.

He claims she damaged it. Whatever.  So apparently there were attempts from this guy to sell her with no luck and he eventually gave it away and my doll acquaintance won her.  She dyed h…

Re-introducing Aniata and her Diorama

Hello Doll Peeps!

I have loads of new items for sale so click on the shopping ladies on the right. Most of the first tier stuff is gone so lots of discounted stuff!

When we last spoke, my doll was named Kala. I had posted her in the BJD Addicts group and a few people remarked that she looked like a Taino. My family is Haitian and my husband's is Puerto Rican, the Tainos lived in both. I thought this was fortuitous. So I emailed my aunt, a fan of the Taino and told her about the doll and that I needed a new name. Kala was always supposed to be temporary and I feared it was taking hold.

She said, "I feel like her name is Aniata." And I knew it was right. It's hard to get the tongue around but if you just pronounce the T softly, like in Anita, then it's much more natural.

Anyway introducing Aniata!  (Doll nudity ahead.)

I've been working on the hut like crazy since the last post. While I waited for paint and glue to dry, I made Aniata stuff. I made her necklace…

An Official Farewell

Hi Guys,

I don't know if you're still reading this but I'm officially taking this blog offline. It was so fun to be part of the 1/6th scale doll community and on Facebook at least, I still am. But I feel like the BJD community is mostly on other platforms.

I'll always be at and you can reach me at the gmail of the same name.  Hey, I may even start a blog over on the site, so who knows?

Here's a picture of nearly all my doll family (missing Doll Chateau Alma, who doesn't have a face up yet, and an Impldoll Martin head.)

EDIT: Blogger will STILL not let me comment. haha.  Anyway, due to the very positive response, I will not take this blog down. I remember how heartbroken I was that Smidgehouse didn't leave hers up. So I'll keep this here forever, okay?

I might even post a link to any blog posts on my website. See you...always!

It's be great collecting and growing with you!
