Ugh whatever. Just, here!

Folks, lemme tell you, I am so tired of my little big project. The big stuff was easy (spray painting and such). That was over weeks and weeks ago. It's been the small stuff. And I'm still nowhere near done but I'll do the rest in Phase Two (Bailey and Remi's wedding). I miss my dolls so hard. I have two new beauties I haven't even taken shots of. I have pretty new clothes that just sit around, unworn, unappreciated, unphotographed. Stories untold! All for this shizz.


And today, Grandville's food truck, Enchanted Eats!


"Lavita Terrell here for Channel One News, Grandville. I'm here with Mistress Ava Stronghold in front her food truck, Enchanted Eats!"

"Mistress Ava, food trucks are so last week. Why bother? What makes Enchanted Eats different?"

"I've got to disagree Lavita. Food trucks have been around as long as humans have had markets. They're just taking a new form. I think it encourages a sense of community. Enchanted Eats uses all local ingredients which are blessed by a local coven. All produce is specifically harvested with intention and all chosen for their correspondences to love, prosperity, protection...even lust!"

"Well that certainly is different. Come on down to Grandville Park today to try some of Mistress Ava's Enchanted Eats. Back to you, Jim."

Well, lemme show you around:

Some of the delicious treats served:

The sandwich prep area and sink. I'll be adding shelves to this wall and trying to scuff up the silver paper more.

I think the flat top grill gunked up nicely. Must do more of that on the wall above the fryer. There will be lots of witchy doodads on the wall. Skull tiles, tiny broom that I haven't made yet.

[I forgot to take a pic of this so I got this before I put everything way. I made fry baskets with Rement dish racks and pot holder thingies. I don't know what half the shizz is in my Rement stash. Fries will go in there at some point I suppose.]

This is where orders are taken.

And this is where you pick up the order and pay. Might as well grab a doughnut.

Another view.

The staff at Enchanted Eats:
Maura (in argyle):  Customer Service
Valentina: Head Chef
Zeke: Sous Chef
Mistress Ava Stronghold: Figurehead, Money

Rai has a new rich older boyfriend, Hunter. You can't keep a good Brazilian down.
Aragorn is check out the options. Cheri informs him she is not on the menu.
Sooki can't believe he's just standing there and not noticing her!  Raven agrees. Mind boggling.

My favorite picture and I'm fairly sure it was an accident.

Morgan has ordered The Maiden. It's basically a gyro.

I see a little butt crack!

Bits and pieces will be added but my workspace (this) needs some serious help. Time to rearrange Grandville again!

Back soon!



  1. What a cool lunch wagon! Who would have thunk of that! lol Keep on..the other dolls etc. can wait just a little longer.:-)

  2. I think you're a great visual artist, everything here is amazingly done e pretty realistic! I really adore Enchanted Eats logo! So cool! Seeing all these beautiful pictures is a party for the eyes, congrats :-)

    1. Thanks Sergio! Figuring out a logo frustrated me for about 3 weeks! In the end, I used an embroidery pattern I found on Google images

  3. It's fabulous! I am all about the food trucks. I've never eaten from one, but I watch them on tv. Love all the little details. The sandwich and the fixings are my fave.

    1. Thanks! I've never eaten from one either but I love the idea!

  4. Pity this was a drag for you, but it's a delight for me to see. Love the foodstuff (lol) and the people checking potential.

    We'll see the other stuff when you get to it ;-)

    1. Thanks D7ana. Well it WAS fun. It's not the project that's a drag but the fact that I only have 1.5-2 hours per day to work on it!

  5. I love the food truck! What s great idea! The food is so realistic, it made me hungry. LOL. Great job! :-)

  6. This is sooooo nice Vita you did a great job.

  7. I love it! I have eaten at a food truck a few times downtown Atlanta and you totally captured it. Great job Dania!!

  8. Great Truck!! I love what you did to it. It works so well with your park and farmer's market. This could be a story for days!!! I see you picked up your pieces from our esty friend. I saw them, then saw that they were taken.

    1. Thanks Ms. Leo! I think at least 3 Etsy friends have products in this truck!

  9. That is so cool! What a great idea to make a food truck. My littler berg isn't very fancy so we don't have food trucks here, just hotdog carts on the corner, lol. It was neat to see inside a toy one.

  10. Whoa! What a creative makeover! I love what you've done with it. Amazing work! The little details really make the whole.

  11. Barbie pink camper who? Not when you can have a fabulous food truck by Dani! Man, I'm thinking of shipping my dolls off for a visit of Grandville. Your dolly town has really developed into the place to be. I'm really looking forward to seeing it come full circle. Great work, Dani!

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…
