The new sewing machine

I use props for my doll pictures.
I get these props from a number of different places.
This week I was in Target and found this set.
It is called  "It Seams Perfect".
It was designed for the 18 inch dolls.

This is Hailey by Our Generation.
 This is the doll it was designed for. 
There is a picture of this doll on the box,
actually sitting at the machine.
As you can see,   she is to big.

This doll is also 18 inches tall.
She is by Madame Alexander.
The dress form is fine, but the sewing machine
and the sewing table is to small.

 This is Lola.  She is 10 inches tall.
She is a BJD by Berdine Creedy.
She is a bit to small.

 This doll is 14 inches tall.
She is Dell,  by Hearts 4 Hearts.
The scale looks good for her.

But,  she can not sit with her feet under the table.

 So I tried Nanny.    She fits fine.
She did inform me that she really 
doesn't have time to sew!

This is Hermione, by Robert Tonner. 
She is 17 inches tall.
She can sit nicely.
And she says she loves to sew.

NOTE:   I love the things that Our Generation makes.
But rarely do they work for 18 inch dolls.

For the love of a giraffe

It seems like the whole world is giraffe crazy!!
Including the dolls in the Big Red House.

Michael dug out his animals today
just to find the giraffe.

He even made April and Oliver a pen.

Good job Michael.

To recycle

Do you recycle??
The dolls in the big red house recycle.

We just got a brand new recycle bin.
Do you like the color? 
It is so much better than the ones the town gives out.

Now if only the boys would use it.
They say it is too pink!!!
