All dressed up and no where to go.

Welcome to my world of little furniture designs.

A journey into the OOAK designs for the 1-6 scale fashion diva and collectors. I have always been a crafter and I have used my knowledge of power tools and paint to create eclectic furniture and dioramas.

Finally, spring in East Texas.

I have to admit, I am NOT a winter person and as everyone in East Texas knows, if you don't like the weather today, will probably change tomorrow. That seems to be the case this week, however, today was excellent. I took advantage of the sunny afternoon, went into the yard and took pics of the gazebo my husband, Mike, built. Barefoot and auburn hair slightly blowing in the breeze, my new "girl" made some gorgeous photos. This, by the way, is the FR doll I purchased at a discounted price because her boobs were slightly darker than her arms and legs. REALLY????  I toned down her bright red lips with a light coat of gold and applied the same gold on her auqa shadowed eyelids. I haven't had a chance to stage my new guy dolls and yay, they are articullated.  (Carmen, I will be using the "stiffies" to experiment on swapping joints in the legs and arms.)  I love the tips and help I have always gotten from those in the dolly world. 


  1. I love the gazebo, and Carmen looks charming.

    Your doll is a fashion royalty Exotic Fusion Kyori. Her original body is known to yellow over time. I replaced mine on an articulated Mattel. The skin tone and neck fit were perfect and she can wear babs clothing now.

    1. The dress is charming. It is a Debbie Dee, Chic Barbie Designs, spring dress. I will be so excited when I can names the dolls. I also had wondered if I could change heads from the stiff dolls to the articulated Barbies. My favorite Barbie has a mature face, bobbed off red hair and is just beautiful. Her only draw back...she is an older doll and bends only at the knees. youtube says dip the head in boiling water until it is soft...I have just been a little leary of that. I may try it a few times on a doll I am not in love with. Always look forward to hearing from you.

  2. I found your blog thru a friend! I love it all ! Going to go finish browsing thru your older posts. Stop by my blog when you have time and say hello. Chynadoll Creations
