Poppy Returns to Grandville!

But first! A trip to visit my dad always yields something good. His workshop is full of little treasures. This time I asked for a tool box. He has dozens of those things but he happened to have a perfect one for me.

Top level for tools and small items.
 Middle section for adhesives and bulkier things used often.
 The bottom for paint (I later added a bag of reroot tools and hair)
This normally took up 4 clear shoe-box sized bins. Organi-zized!

Okay now some shots of Poppy before I wrecked her bangs. (Sorry Cat, you knew it would happen!)

I can't tell you how much I love Poppy now that Cat gave her a reroot and awesome bang. I've decided Poppy Parker's eyes are just too wide and it makes her look like a moron. But with longer hipster bangs, she has the perfect amount of sass!

And she has a dark side.

"I don't know if you remember me. I only lived in Grandville a short time. Before it was even called Grandville. I had what you might call a nervous breakdown. I had to visit a Sanitarium for a while to have my head looked at by the good Dr. Cat.

Had I known what I was coming home to, I might never have returned."

 [Author's note: Grandville exists outside of the space-time continuum. What you are seeing takes place after the Morristown wedding and after Felix's bachelor party. One of which is taking place nowish and one is being reworked.]

 A wild party at Hanna's:
[Yes, I'm aware I have continuity problems. Just play along.]

The party favors:

"Oh Hanna dear, Zeke's impressionable young girlfriend has arrived..."

"Boohoo," impressionable young girlfriend, Penny cries.

 "What do you mean his GIRLFRIEND? Wait a minute Grandville. What the hell has been going on here? You have a drug dealer now?  I hear there are *yeck* children? And any skanky ho can mack on your man?"

 "Zeke, how could you?! I trusted you!"
"Sorry babe, you were gone so long..."

 "And YOU! You *&%$#@! We were roommates! You're supposed to be my friend!"

 "There, there Poppy. You've gotten your bangs all in a tizzy. You have to expect these things when you're friends with Hanna," Bailey comforts.
"What about you?"
 "Oh Hanna knows better."

"You poor thing. You're a lovely girl, you don't need that jerk."

 "That b*tch Hanna has to pay."
"You should call my sister Dani. She's nursin' a mean grudge," Sooki suggests.

Poppy is back and ready for vengeance! What will Poppy do? Why does Dani have a grudge against Hanna now? I have no idea yet!



  1. Poppy looks great! Did she really expect she could be gone that long and still have a boyfriend when she returns? Cat may have removed some brain matter with that reroot!

  2. Oh my goodness, things have gone crazy! XD
    Poppy looks fantastic!

  3. Oh Hanna! I just LOVE Cat-fights! Whoo!

  4. Ok, you're the first blog with a drug dealer! LOL! And was that a bong? Yeah, it crazy town now. She might want to be an outpatient with her doctor.

    1. Well, ya gotta stand out somehow Ms. Leo! I'm hoping to introduce a call girl into the mix but sadly it's been done before. I think Poppy has some rage issues! Maybe I need a town therapist!

  5. How did Blogger NOT put this where I could see it?! Loving the story line! And her bangs increased in crazy right along with her rage. Hands down hilarious! (^_^) But I may be to blame for her rage, as she and I cursed at one another during the entire re-root process. She was even trouble while I was re-rooting her. The HARDEST re-root I have done to date. But, I still have love for the girl, rage issues and all.

    1. Well she did turn out beautifully. I'm going to miss your services.

  6. Hi I'm new here :) I have a similar tool box like that, i't's very comfortable for keeping items. Poppy is stunning, can't wait to see what she'll do

    1. Hi Sergio! Thanks for coming by. I'm always looking for ways to organize all this stuff! Now that the tools are organized, time to work on organizing the clothes!

  7. Good story vita plastica what poppy is that and what doll is Danielle


    1. Hi Elijah,

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!
