sweet little girls




Happy New Year!

My goals are made, Christmas decorations away, and we're kind of ready for next week, when school etc. all begin again.

Look at these sweet little dolls. The two on the sides were Christmas gifts for my girls from their Auntie Courtney, who made them from this Black Apple pattern. Aren't they fabulous? The doll in the middle I picked up for baby at Pottery Barn Kids on clearance. She's terrified of it. (Would you think less of me if I told you that I have fun asking her to hold it, just because I think it's funny to hear her say, "no scary baby - eyes!"?)

I totally love the leg warmers on the doll!!

I think she may be right...those eyes are a little terrifying!

Off to get *my* decorations put away. I know it's time, but I just. don't. want. to.

I love the legwarmers on those black apple dolls, I made some of those dolls for my three girls for Christmas, I think they need their own pair of legwarmers now:)

Will you think less of me if I admit to thinking _more_ of you for having admitted to it? :-)

If you want to give up on that little bit of nasty pleasure whilst possibly solving the fear problem, might I suggest putting some eyelids on the baby doll? You know, half circles that would conceal the top part? I think that'd make her look slightly less like she might do something scary.

That is just too funny. My little girl used to be totally freaked out by babies and now she's getting into them. Of course not the ones I make her but otherwise she likes them.

Till this day, if there is a doll staring at me while I sleep, I have to turn it face down(I'm almost 30!)...this particular 'eye' doll would probably do me in... The 'black apple' dolls are adorable~
Happy New Year!

I was going to say that I loved the stripey knit legs on the middle one, but yes, I can see how her eyes might be a bit "scary"!

Joslyn said...

ha ha, no. mamas have to get their kicks where they can. mine has had a frog-in-the-throat cold this week and I keep making her say "Exterminate!". She has no idea who the daleks are, but I'm finding it hilarious.

Tammy said...

Too cute!!! They remind me of your girls!!! oh and by the way, they are scary baby eyes. I don't blame her, but I would do the same thing!!!

Larissa Holland said...

Cheryl said...

The doll in the middle is possessed, smart kid.

When she gets a little older, she will be the one making you say things for the reaction, when it happens...remember this moment!

Terri said...

Love the leg warmers but have to agree with the baby no scary baby eyes! : )

melissa said...

Oh the scary baby eyes...they are disturbing aren't they!

Chrissy said...

I think just having NO FACE is scary enough!
No telling what scares and what won't. Ours are nervous of pumpkin faces.

Mel said...

Wow, that middle doll is a bit creepy. The eyes look a bit crazed. Love how the Black Apple dolls turned out though. So cozy looking.

Mandi said...

Can the eyes come off? I am sorry to say but that doll kinda scares the heck out of me! The Black apple dolls are lovely think I must make one!

Heather said...

"Sweet little girls" indeed! I love the one on the right with the pixie cut and bright scarf. How very creative.

Now, I want one.:)

I was laughing out loud about the whole scary eyes thing. I'm feeling in better company after reading the confessions in the comments.:)

Pascale said...

A little smile would do wonders on that creepy doll ... I love the Black Apple dolls, though!

If ordering from an online ed hardy Clothing store, she should either have tried ed hardy sale the garment on in a store somewhere ed hardy or she had better be buying ed hardy UK from a vendor with a great return ed hardy cheap policy. Buying from an ed hardy Clothes online vendor has its risks and ed hardy store they should be understood. The edhardy.com upside is that online stores christian audigier sale tend to have a large selection ed hardy dresses of clothing to choose from. The ed hardy Polos bad news is they can be more ed hardy sandals expensive, or the cost of shipping and handling ed hardy Jackets can offset any cost savings she might have enjoyed.
