    I just love Victorian Era dresses and also love creating penny rug pictures using wool felt and thought penny rug Victorian dress picture decorations would be nice. So, my Victorian Dresses Series was born.

    Baby Belle Of The Christmas Ball is an e-pattern to create a 5" by 5" Victorian wool felt dress picture in a  purchased picture frame and a 3" Victorian dress ornament in a penny rug style design.

    The felt dress piece is embroidered to the felt background and the felt dress overskirt piece is embroidered to the felt dress piece. Lace trims, seed beads, and other embellishments are sewn to the dresses and overskirt pieces.

    The base and back lining are blanket stitch embroidered along the edges.

    The picture  pattern can be made as just a penny rug wool felt blanket stitched picture or enclosed within a wall picture frame or tabletop picture frame.  The ornament is hung from a ribbon hanger.

    The pattern includes text instructions, step-by-step color diagrams for finishing the penny rug dress picture and ornament from start to finish, full page picture layout sheet, and full page single sided pattern piece sheets. The pattern also includes step-by-step illustrations and instructions for Basic Blanket Stitching.

    To me one of the most beautiful things in this world are flowers. It doesn't matter how hard you try you can NEVER capture their natural beauty - you just can't. It is perfection beyond human capabilities as far as I'm concerned.

    Hubby knows I feel this way which is why every year for my birthday he surprises me with astonishing flower bouquets. Last month he got me another "Oh, my god!" arrangement.

    You know, one of those floral arrangements that just cause your jaw to drop and your mouth to be wide open in astonishment. I just LOVE those kind of arrangements.

    And, of course, I have to take a few pictures.  Okay, maybe more than a few.  I can't help it.  They just amaze me with their beauty.

    I hope you would agree.

    Thanks for the flowers and beautiful images, dear.

  • 02/02/13--06:16: Twin Tail Day

  • Twin tails you like? if so then its time to celebrate - today is officially Twin Tail Day in Japan.
    The Japan Anniversary Association has officially declared that Feb the 2nd is "Twin Tail Day" (ツインテールの日)

    The Japan Anniversary Association websites explains how today became to be "Twin Tail Day."

    The explanation mentions that the hairstyle is admired worldwide and how titles like Sailor Moon and fashion brands have been spreading the appeal of the twin tail. The reason why its Feb the 2nd is because of how 2/2 (Feb 2nd) overlap with each other donating the Twin Tail.

    ...Sounds like a good reason to celebrate the bodaciousness of twin tails!

    There is even a website to promote and feature the wonderful world of Twin Tails - most of it covers only 3D girls at the moment though.

    I always keep up with what goes in in Japan through Twitter Trends and discovered that I should have been celebrating all day today ><
    But folks in the US still have a day ahead of them to break out the champaign.

    Folks in Japan have been celebrating by drawing a load of twin tail girlies - check out this search query.

    The Twintail website has been asking us to spread the joy of twin tails and I thought I'd do my duty. This first set of photos is of the lovely Sano Hinako-chan. More photos of her live here.

    The next lovely twin tail is Kenmochi Sakura-chan who works part time at Starbucks!
    More photos of her lives here.

    I love 2D twin tails too and here is my fave - Haruka Suenaga! This is her in Summer Uniform.

    Haruka in Winter Uniform.

    Haruka in Solar Marine Uniform.

    Haruka in Bikini Battle Gear.

    And here is Haruka with her big sister Mirai Suenaga and comrade Kanata Hoshikawa.

    All these wallpapers and photoshop files are available for you to download for free to make Twin Tail Day cards for your family and friends.

    There is a poll embedded in this article.

  • Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano is another of the characters included in the last wave of Hasbro’s Star Wars Vintage Collection. This means, of course, that the figure was sculpted in the realistic style.

  • 02/02/13--09:06: Madame Alexander 2013 Dolls
  • It's that time of year again for me to drool over my secret passion - baby faced dolls. I probably won't be adding new MA dolls to my collection this year as I still look for deeply discounted ones from several years ago.
    For this post I will show only the 21" Cissy and 10" Cissette dolls.

    21" Madame Alexander-1923 is a fully articulated Cissy dressed as she would've been in 1923 when she began the company. Limited Edition of 125 dolls.
    21" Scarlett O'Hara Prayer Dress is a fully articulated Cissy with green eyes and wavy, center-parted, shoulder length brunette hair pulled up on the sides and held with a red bow.

    10" Sylvia From the Ballet Sylvia is a fully articulated Cissette.

    10" Snowflake from The Nutcracker Collection is a fully articulated, Cissette with blue eyes and upswept black braids wearing a magnificent white tutu.

    10" fully articulated, Cissette Celebrates Madame's 90th Anniversary.
    Queen Victoria, having sat on the throne for 63 years, is the longest reigning monarch in British history. She set the tone for many aspects of British life but none more so than fashion. She is a 10" fully articulated Cissette.
    10" Zelda Fitzgerald - infamous wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald - is a fully articulated Cissette.
     10" Denise Boulet is a fully articulated Cissette.
    10" Theodora, who would eventually be the Wicked Witch of the West, is fully articulated with brown eyes and side-parted brunette hair that's swept to one side and fashioned into a braided bun.
    10", fully articulated Glinda, has brown eyes and long, blonde wavy hair.
    In Disney's new prequel to The Wizard Of Oz, we come to know the Great Oz as Oscar Diggs, with brown eyes, brown painted hair and goatee.
     10" Evanora, fully articulated with brown eyes and side-parted, brunette hair pulled back and styled into a loose bun, looks more beautiful than you'd ever expect the future Wicked Witch of the East to look.
    Coffee or Tea with Pan Am, a fully articulated stewardess, as they were called, with short, curly Taffy Tan hair, dressed as she would be in 1970.
    10" Scarlett O'Hara Honeymoon Dress is a fully articulated Cissette with green eyes and brunette hair pulled back to a low bun at the nape.
     10" Dorothy in the Poppy Fields is a fully articulated Cissette.
    10" Wicked Witch of The West and The Winged Monkeys is a fully articulated, green-faced meanie who has dark eyes and black hair pulled up into a top-knot.
     10" Glinda The Good Witch and The Lullaby League is a fully articulated, Cissette, with blue eyes and long, curly Taffy Tan hair, wearing a gorgeous pink gown.

    And there is so much more. If I were going to pick my favorites, I'd get the Madame Alexander 21" Cissy holding the two little dolls. The Cissette I like best is the Scarlett O'Hara Honeymoon Dress doll.  The cutest ones are the Oz dolls. So adorable!

    These are just partial descriptions of the dolls taken from who has the world's most extensive list and pictures of Madame Alexander dolls. All of these dolls can be purchased there. She also carries some Gene Marshall dolls and fashions!

    Kotobukiya's ArtFX+ Jango Fett is ready for cloning screenshot

    Kotobukiya has released a preview gallery for their upcoming 1/10 scale Jango Fett ArtFX+ statue. Jango Fett, best known as Boba Fett's father and the genetic material for a clone army, will stand over seven inches tall and interchangeable arms for a blaster firing pose.

    Although called a statue, Jango Fett (like previous entries) is really a pre-painted, snap together plastic model kit but you'd never know that by looking at him. Jango Fett seems nothing short of spectacular between the level of sculpting and solid paintwork. To top that off, the ArtFX+ Jango Fett offers two very cool poses between a passive "standing there" and that getting ready to fire pose. He also comes with interchangeable rocket backpacks, giving the option to replicate his appearance on either Kamino or Geonosis. 

    Jango Fett appeared in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones where he served as a supporting antagonist. He was a Mandalorian Knight who, in addition to working for Count Dooku, had supplied his genetic material for the clone army prior to the film and, in exchange, received one of the cloned children whom he raised as his son. Despite being a less prominent antagonist, Jango Fett demonstrated all the coolness that Boba Fett failed to deliver on in the original films. Perhaps his coolest moment was killing a giant beast in one shot... which was unfortunately followed by being decapitated by a jedi whose wallet had BAMF written on it.
