A photo, a song, and a winner

One of the things that I've discovered lately is that getting into a regular blogging schedule is harder than I thought. After all this time, you'd think I'd learn to have some back-up posts for times when I'm too busy to blog, wouldn't you? Well, apparently not! I think the best I can expect, whilst I'm studying this year, is that my blogging may be sporadic but I'm reassessing my aims for my blog. These, when I get around to them, will remain just for me but hopefully it will make blogging a better experience for myself and my readers!

Until then, here is a photo of one of my Barbie families (yes, I make families and life stories for my dolls). Three sisters, Casey, Cilla and Tutti (whose name is subject to change.) I love all of these clothes but the dress worn by Casey (standing up on the left) is my favourite and has a little matching bonnet, too. She even has a cute little half-slip to wear underneath.

In other news, I can't stop listening to this cover of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me from She & Him's new album. Mel Carter's version is still my favourite but Zooey's voice suits this song so perfectly!

Lastly, but probably most importantly, I wanted to say that the winner of the What Katie Did competition was notified and her lovely lingerie is on its way to her! I'm sorry for not announcing that sooner but I've not been feeling the best. Congrats to Karin Wennerberg! And thank-you to everyone who entered the competition and to the new followers I now have. 


  1. What a charming sweet Barbie family - I just love their pink outfits. I'm quite sure that my lifelong love of pink stems in no small part from my childhood Barbie dolls.
