Wren’s Cobblestone Stitch Blanket, And Holiday Dress

With the temperatures reaching a significant low this year, I asked the dolls what they’d like me to make for them – blanket? sweater? beanie? – and they answered simultaneously: “BLANKETS.” The dolls have been enduring the cold – as we all have – but now it’s time they had something cozy for all those […]

Debbie’s Empire Waist Dress

Debbie’s been asking me to make her “something new” for the holidays. With Christmas approaching, I decided to crochet an outfit for her, regardless of the color combination (running a little low on holiday-color yarn). One afternoon later, it was complete! This pattern is my newest design – the dress is knee length with an […]

Debbie’s Chronicles: In Singapore, Part II

~Narrated by Debbie, a Madame Alexander Cissette doll~ Dear Blog, The time has come for me to post another travelogue. I was absent last couple of weeks because, well, life and other things have been going on in the background. Orchid’s doing what she calls “cranking down” on her studying, and as such, the other […]

AwtB #16: Debbie And The Duck Pond

A few days ago, Debbie went on her first major outing around campus. Ever since emerging from “hibernation,” she’d wanted to explore all the interesting sights surrounding campus – away from any potential noise the students were making. There was a duck pond nearby, hidden between lecture buildings and trees. Debbie had heard about it, […]

Weekly Wonder, The Twelfth

Goooood morning world! Tis I, Olive again, here to hijack the weekly wonder post for the next 2 weeks! You may remember I took over a Weekly Wonder post awhile back (Weekly Wonder, the Seventh to be exact). I focused on my grandpa’s acreage and the variety of flowers and fruits scattered around his place. […]

Weekly Wonder, The Eleventh

Today I decided it would be fun to share some photos from this afternoon, rather than go through the photo archives and post about ages-old adventures–hence the lateness of this post. It’s that time of year, when university students have moved out or are in the process of doing so. I must say, in the […]

Weekly Wonder, The Tenth

We’ve done it. We’ve reached our tenth Weekly Wonder post. Whoohoooooooo! To be honest, I didn’t think there would be so many photographs to post here, and in such epic quantities. But it’s happened, it’s wonderful, and it’s here to stay. 🙂 A couple weeks ago, after a very wet and slightly humid downpour, Mom […]

A Little Comparison

I thought it would be fun to share a few posts, now and then, with “comparison” photos of the same landmarks photographed at different times during travels. My family and I don’t often visit the same place more than once–at least not without a long time interval in between–so it’s nice to reflect on those […]

Here is a mini collection of some of her adventures, alongside a few random photos taken at different times during travels (mostly in Pennsylvania, if I remember correctly): The photo above was taken on a day Mimi and I […]

Weekly Wonder, The Ninth

To conclude this week’s posts, here are some photos of previous travels. The first selection was photographed in Philadelphia, near Drexel University. The weather was absolutely lovely that day: Then we headed back toward the center of the city, and I got the chance to photograph the landscape by the water: One of the structures […]
