Blythe Berlin - fill the closet

One of my new-year-dolly-goals was: buy more clothes, accessories and shoes! So here we go:


First cute thing which arrived in January was this Little Ditzies gnome helmet from the fb-secondhand-market. One of these helmets stood on my list for long (yes, there is a list with all the goodies we want) and I was very happy to snatch this one in pink.



And as a real fan of Mimsy bear helmets I couldn't resist when this funny fellow appeared in Mimsy Bears little shop! 



We also needed these lovely little dresses made by Miema dollhouse and I am always delighted when things from Gritt arrive, because she sends these little photos of her dolls fashion with the clothes and other little goodies, like a cool notepad this time.



Another Blythe doll fashion designer I really adore is Jenny from icantdance. Her clothes are very hip and stylish and sometimes have this special sense of humour :) And all is hand sewn!! Yes, that's true... I am always spirited by her craftsmanship and tiny evenly stitches.

That's it for today... but stay tuned we shopped a lot more :D

Have a great weekend, dear peeps... The Blythe Berlin dolls and I will stay at home this cold and grey February day in Berlin. Just being lazy and planning the next Blythe Flat Lay Challenge for this month - It is "hearts galore" this time.

Yours, Nicola aka Blythe Berlin aka Dollily

Blythe Flat Lay - January

I recently found a group on fb called "Blythe Flat Lay Challenge I really appreciate this idea because it gives me a good reason to take a themed pic of my Blythe dolls each month! 



January was: "New Year, New Challenge" And if you have read my last blog post you will know my goals for this year!

Have a nice week yours Nicola

Blythe resolutions & belated pictures

I am sorry for how long it has taken me to update this little space finally... 

What to say? Other things were more important for me... like a new job... and a new love... my family... and so the poor little Blythe dolls stood in the Billy shelf and were covered with dust. 




Meanwhile 2018 appeared and a new year is useful for some kinda dolly-resolutions:

1. Write at least one blog post each month
2. Search for themes to take special pics 
3. Take really good pictures of the dolls with my Canon
4. Make more stuff for the dolls
5. Order more accessories, like shoes, stockings, hats, glases...

Despite my lack of posting here I haven't totally stopped playing with the dolls... or making things for them... or taking pics... sometimes :D

Here are some from a calm walk I made with Andrea in July last year. We visited Schönower Heide near to Berlin and it was so relaxing and enchanted... Just me and my doll and the nature *sigh*








I hope you all had a fantastic start into 2018?! What are you goals for the new year? Let me know :)

Yours, Nicola

Berlin sight seeing with Mischa

A while ago I took Mischa, wearing a special Berlin outfit, with me to see some of the well known Berlin sight seeing locations... and today I was finally in the mood for a new blogpost ;)

 Want to come with us? Enjoy!!


First we arrived at Alexander Platz where we visited the famous Weltzeituhr - which the alert reader can see also is part of the awesome Skull maiden helmet Mischa was wearing



After that we saw the so called new market - Neuer Markt, behind the Berlin TV tower - Fernsehturm. It has a lovely fountain and a nice view to the Berlin Cathedral - Berliner Dom and the huge building site of the Humboldt Forum - the new Berliner Schloß



From there we went to the Statue of Marx and Engels. Look how small Mischa was... I think she was a bit afraid of the big hand



On the Museums-Insel next to the Old Museum - Altes Museum and Lustgarten, we found a mini Berlin Cathedral nearly in Mischa's size :D 


On the Bode-Straße-bridge Mischa saw an angel...


We both were very exhausted after all the Berlin sight seeing, but we will sure show you more of Berlin in the future

And here you can see the complete outfit: The Skull Maiden Berlin helmet and the matching Ampelmann dress made by me, especially for this occasion: 


Have a nice week, yours Nicola

Blythe meets are fun!

If you are a doll collector (or collect other things), you know collecting is more fun, when you meet other people who share the same passion as you do!



So it was a great pleasure to me to meet my dear dolly friend Ritty from Leipzig again. We had a lot fun with dolly talks, dolly dress ups and sight seeing here in Berlin




Unfortunately it was raining when we wanted to take some pictures outside, so we made a breakpoint at my flat, dressed the dolls in different outfits and made a group shot :)





Later on the sun was shining again and we went to the 'Tiergarten' where we found some nice locations for a photo shoot and also a tiny little Blythe sized snail ;)

More pictures as always here at my flickr account

Have a nice weekend, yours Nicola aka Blythe Berlin

Hello Schlachtensee - Hello Nikita

After a long time of absense my dolly-mojo finally came back... It's funny somehow! I wish it would be a flow and no up and down!

Anyways! Here are some pics of little Niki (short form for Nikita) at the Schlachtensee. She is the latest addition to my growing Blythe family. She is an "Excellent Hollywood", EBL mold, Release date: February 2003. Customized by the talented Andreea Mariuka and an absolute dream come true for me. 


 And because of the really warm Spring weather she wore her new HandmadebyJinte dress we won at BCEU last September.


  

I love to be here because of the great nature - water & forest and because we went there often when I was a small kid and it's still like I captured it in my memories. Just awesome, even with the lack of green leaves. 


Nikita took her first sun-bath!


Isn't she just a cutie?!

Have great and peaceful Easter days, yours Nicola
