Blythe Flat Lay - April

Theme of the month: Pranks and Trickery

Another photo for the Blythe Flat Lay Challenge... I really had no idea for this one, but then Tilda decided to play a board game with the Jasons! Poor Tilda they are always cheating and the naked one is the worst ;)

And yes, how you can see my Pretty Peonie finally arrived :) I will post more pictures and a little review of her soon.

Yours Nicola aka Blythe Berlin

Fill the closet - Part II

Before March is gone I wanted to show you a few of my purchases for the spoiled Blythe Berlin Blythe dolls quickly:

You already know the cute Icantdance sweatshirt Niki is wearing on this picture, it was part of my last "fill the closet" post :) I also had to have the kitty shirt from Jenny/Icantdance because it is baby Elvira, her awesome Maine Coon cat and the shirt is so stinkin' cute anyway!

Rosa in the middle wears a lovely combi from Cositas de Nenitas with an ouija board theme. I love to dress Rosa in black and spooky clothes, because she is somehow a little ghost girl to me.

I also bought a lot shoes... Most of them on the fb second-hand market. The red Mary Janes and the black boots were from DOLLBONBON on etsy, a bit pricy but worth the money!

 Some of these are original Takara stock shoes, like the cowboy boots from "Hello Harvest" in the middle and the funny 70s boots from "Mod Molly" on the right. Some of the others unknown... The brown boots on the left could be the ones from "Nick Lad"... Anyway, I like them all and so do the dolls :D

These basic Tutus and the little pinafore came from MINIJIJO. Can a doll ever own too much Tutus? I plan to revamp the pinafore with other buttons and maybe with a bit of embroidery?!

Another buy from the fb second-hand market was this cute little felt dress with the fox (unfortunately it is a bit widely and the fashion designer in me is missing the fit here). I even don't know the maker... I know she was at flickr in the good old golden flickr days and made a lot of these nice dresses. 

The glases were from FLEUDELYSDOLLS on etsy. They are well made and cool somehow, but also here a problem with the fitting - The temple stems are much too long :(

Also from the second-hand market were these awesome knickers! Highly recommended - They are so well made and fit perfect. The maker is: BlytheHappy on etsy. I am sure I will order some panties directly from her, because of the sad fact that all the more recent Takara Blythe releases are coming with cleaning rags instead of underwear... You can see it on the picture here: Wolkje holds her Takara "underwear" in her hand and throws it away ;)

Another great addition to my growing bunch of Blythe stock outfits was the purchase of the complete "Silver Snow" set. I wanted the jacket, ear muffs and cons for long and I am also happy about the other little clothes and things! Takara made such adorable and detailed fashion for their dolls in the past... I wish, they would still do it!

Still no news from my Pretty Peonie... I am a bit upset about this wait by now... I wrote to CC Toys a few times and I REALLY hope they will fix this problem soon. And one thing is clear for me, the next doll I will order will be from another shop!

I am wishing you happy Easter days if you celebrate, yours Nicola aka Blythe Berlin

Dollily handmade or FINALLY finished!

Last summer I was in the mood to make something for my neglected Blythe dolls again and started to knit some tops for dresses... finished the pink dress with the fawns on it... gave it to my dear dolly friend Schneckiene when she came for a short visit to Berlin... 

and the other three tops went into my stash, hanging around with some other unfinished things I brought with me from Minden to Berlin... unbelievable, but true!

But when I wrote this post I had the wilful intent to finally finish all things in my stash before I start something new... 

I even managed to finally sew some buttons on a Secretdoll Person dress & helmet I knitted ... really a while ago ;)

So *YEAH* for me and the FOs -> Finished objects :D

Now I am planning to sew some Spring-dresses and something 70s for a special Blythe doll, I will give myself for my birthday in April...

Some other good news; my Pretty Peony landed in Berlin after WEEKS and I will go to the custom tomorrow to pick her up! Excitement!! EDIT: it wasn't Pretty Peony and so the wait is still going on :( 

Have a nice day, yours Nicola aka Blythe Berlin - yearning for SPRING

Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg with a Blythe doll - of course!

I really like a walk at Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg, not only because it is next to where I live, it is a very nice park though...

This bear always is a victom of "street art" - so sad! The very first picture I took of him was in October 2016 and he didn't look like a panda bear back then...

Volkspark Prenzlauerberg is one of the parks which was build on rubble mountains after WW II and it has this somehow forgotten vibe, because it looks more like a overgrown forest and not like a park. 

It's composed of two mountains with a stone on top of each:

The view down the hill which was ment to sledge in the past:

And even if there was not just a single snowflake, just freezing temperatures, Nele went sledding with some other kids :D

Isn't she the cutest little sledder ever?!

Have a nice sunday dear peeps, we are going to Schlachtensee today... and maybe there will be a doll with us again?!

Pretty Peony

There will be a new Blythe doll in the house again... when she will arrive finally...

These were her pics and description at Junie moon and I was really tempted by her hair colour! Blue is my favourite colour and I always wanted a doll with dark blue hair!

Peony is a very well respected woman.

She is beautiful both on the inside and the outside.
Even with all her talents she continues to be humble and sweet.

The standing collar with knot style embroidery is sweet and cool.
The flower and butterfly embroidery are coordinating with the bolero and gorgeous pink dress.
Her hair and fashion accessories are in the theme of a sweet butterfly.
She wears long boots with knee high socks, which gives her a chic and modern feeling.

Face Color: Fair, Hair: Ink Blue Bob
Makeup: Eyeshadow- brown, Cheek and Lip- salmon pink
She has special purple eye chips in a forward gaze.

Peony loves to wear traditional Chinese fashion. Face Type: Radiance +

Meanwhile some pictures from happy people who finally got their Peonies appeared on the web and I am very happy I ordered her. She looks so stunning!

And I REALLY hope mine will arrive soon!

Yours impatient Nicola

Plänterwald, Spreepark... and little Leni

Last sunday we were in the mood for a wintry walk in the woods and decided to go to Plänterwald. I took Leni (my Lena Elena Middie Blythe doll) with me...

because she is one of the Blythe Berlin dolls I really neglected for too long!

Doesn't she look like a tiny Alice in wonderland on these huge mushrooms here?

When you go to Plänterwald you also come across Spreepark, an abondoned fairground. Unfortunately they fenced the whole terrain, because of safety concerns and new plans they have... None the less it is very fascinating and spooky somehow!

We completed our lovely walk with a visit on the "Klipper", a very cozy sailing-boat-restaurant on the Spree, where we had some yummy cake and hot drinks :)

Outside the Klipper on the sun deck you can find a lot of these funny guys made from old, rusty tools and stuff, so freakin' cool! So, if you ever go to Plänterwald or Treptower Park, make a break and enjoy the atmosphere, it's highly recommended!

Have a nice weekend, yours Nicola aka Blythe Berlin
