Meet Esther!

Does the boy Jess mold count as a separate face mold unto itself?

I haven’t decided, but when I saw this wigless, already customized beauty for the perfect price…


Meet Esther.

Sweet little Esther is apparently what happens when I go AG clothes shopping on 2nd hand sites. πŸ™‚ I end up with more doll friends but not necessarily more clothes!


Esther’s eyes are from Beautifully Custom! So pretty!
She’s actually my first doll with non-AG eyes.


I just adore this Jitterbug outfit. Peter Pan collars and saddle shoes are two of my favorite things!


Esther’s lips came lightly glossed and she’s got just a little extra color in her face, like she’s just been laughing or playing. I love her little beauty marks, too!


Her wig is a CYO wig I found secondhand. I may try a few others on her, but I do love this one! It’s full of spunk, just like little Esther. ❀


What do you think?

Would you ever customize an AG boy as a girl doll?

Have you ever had a doll non-AG eyes?

Meet Joss! I mean…

Joss, GOTY 2020, is here!

Since she has a new face mold, I had to have her! (One of my goals with my collection is to have all the face molds…currently I’m missing #4 and Nanea.)

So, meet…



I’ll be changing her story slightly from AG’s as I’m not a fan of cheerleading, either… πŸ˜‰

[Marjorie’s necklace was a gift from her cousin and not part of her AG collection.]

She’s still in a bit of shock as it snowed the day after she arrived here, so her cousin πŸ˜‰ gave her some long pants and actual shoes to wear.


Speaking of shoes–the sandals she came with are absolutely awful to take off. I bent a couple nails back in the process. I’ll probably set them somewhere to look cute and never put them on any doll again!


AG sends the doll with an extra hearing aid in case one is lost and a pair of undies since that pink geometric top is actually a one piece swimsuit.


Overall, she’s a lovely doll, from her highlighted hair and hearing aid to her adorable high-waisted shorts. AG did a wonderful job!

Summer instead of Snow

Annnd…here’s a summer throwback of little Millie and Charlotte because it’s still snowy outside.



I bought this over the summer when it was on sale–I’d been wanting this trailer for a while!


Anyway, it’s adorable and quite heavy!


“Would you like a sip of my grape soda, Millie?”


I love all the little accessories.


Unfortunately you can’t see her little saddle shoes.


Bye friends!

Melody and Mums


It’s snowing here, so I figured I’d post some of the last doll photos I took while the fall colors were still out!

Anyway, here’s Melody and Mums.



And of course the fall colors! πŸ™‚

AG Q&A Tag

Hey, it’s ThePolkaDotPatriot!
So ages ago several of you guys tagged us for the AG Q&A Tag!
And now, months later, I’m finally posting it… πŸ˜‰Β 
I just realized that the pictures of Linden in here are from before my family’s move…yikes….anyway, hope you enjoy. πŸ™‚

What is a quality you like about yourself?
DSC_7187 C.jpg
Exterior quality? My curly hair. It is gorgeous but gets frizzy easily. Other than that…I seem to make friends easily? My family just moved from France, but I already have so many friends here! Vivie even has a new little friend, Millie. ❀
Are you the kind of doll that likes attention?
DSC_7191 C.jpg
Well, historical reenactments, which I positively adore, do sort of bring the attention on you. But I typically have more of a supporting role…so I suppose I would have to say, I like a little attention, but not too much!
In a game of Truth or Dare, would you lean towards picking the truth or a dare?
DSC_7185. C.jpg
Ooh…I think that would depend on who I was playing the game with. But probably truth, unless I was feeling extremely brave. πŸ˜‰
What is your favorite thing to do with your human?
DSC_7190 C.jpg
Probably get my photos taken (while in historical attire). I’m a little awkward in front of the camera, but the human only posts flattering pictures of me, which definitely helps!
Would you say you are more of a tom-boy or a girly-girl?
DSC_7189 C
I mean…I go around in some form of dress nearly every weekend of the summer. I’m very fussy about my reenactment clothing, but day-to-day? I don’t care much. I just throw on whatever brand I’m supposed to be repping. πŸ˜‰ So probably girly-girl with a tiny hint of tomboy. πŸ˜€
I tag:
Lindsey May: AGs in Alaska
Lila: AG and Me
Did I just tag a bunch of other dolls whose names start with L, too? Yup. πŸ˜€
DSC_7192. C.jpg
My questions for them:
  • Which Beforever girl are you most like?
  • Who annoys you the most in your doll family?
  • What is your favorite thing about your name (besides it starting with an L πŸ˜‰ )?
  • Right now, is your room messy or clean?
  • What is your future dream job (ignoring practicality)?

–Linden ❀


Stuart’s Turn:

H-hey everyone!

What is your favorite musical instrument?

I play the violin, and I r-really love it.

If you could be cast in any movie…what character would you want to be?

Maybe Sergeant York as a b-boy? H-he was n-neat. Or a movie about one of the F-founding F-fathers.

Would you rather go to the mountains or the beach?

The mountains! I-I don’t even own a s-swimsuit, actually. πŸ™‚

What’s the most fun thing you get to do with your human?

Go c-cool places, like on the road trip to p-pick up Millie.

Ooh, also hanging out with the guys. The human was taking pictures, if that counts?

DSC_8554. C.jpg

What accessory or outfit do you wish AG would create?

Β More h-historical boy clothes! L-like Revolutionary War or WWII stuff.

I think I w-won’t tag anyone else or add questions, s-since Linden already t-took care of that.
Favorite outfit?
DSC_6937. C
Probably this one. I like stuff with a kinda ‘preppy’ style.
Favorite store?
Mmmm…like, clothing? Or…
There’s this cute little grocery store near where my cousins live in NM. There’s always a surprise item, a little something you’d never expect there. It’s a good way to lose a couple dollars!
Favorite song?
I’ve been listening to Traveler and The Breaking Of The Dawn a lot lately. They’re both by Fernando Ortega.
Favorite movie?
The Lavender Hill Mob.Β It’s pretty great!
Favorite YouTube channel?
There are a couple channels that I watch a lot to help me keep up my Navajo. Which isn’t very great in the first place, but I’d rather not loose the little bit of the language that I do have!
Thanks for reading, and sorry it took so looong to post!

Memorial Day-ish

Sorry this is a little late…but we should remember our troops’ sacrifices on Memorial Day and all the other days of the year, too! (Scroll down to the end of this post for a beautiful quote that’s much better than anything I could think up.)

Anyway, here’s Lucy paying her respects:

DSC_9022.overlay C.jpg

“Their sacrifice was great, but not in vain. All Americans and every free nation on earth can trace their liberty to the white markers of places like Arlington National Cemetery. And may God keep us ever grateful.” -George W Bush.

Melody in “Spring” Pink

Morning, dears!

So I guess I never mentioned getting Melody on here…there are a couple other new faces settling in too, which you may see on my Instagram posts. πŸ˜‰

I got Melody brand new in box for quite a bit less than retail. She showed up with permapanties but they’re pretty decent so I decided to just ignore them! I haven’t completely solidified her personality, but she’s definitely a dream to photograph! Melody and Linden (my #67) are super similar, though. Haven’t decided whether I’m okay with that yet or not!

Anyway, enjoy the photos!

DSC_8663. C

I don’t actually have Marie-Grace’s meet boots…can you guess who we borrowed these from?

DSC_8664. C

I know Melody’s hair totally doesn’t go with the time period, but I still think it looks sweet.

DSC_8665. C

Melody and I are trying very hard to pretend it’s Spring here. Even though it just snowed/hailed here. We really are trying. πŸ˜€

DSC_8666. C

I’d just gotten home from work in time to take these before the sun set.

DSC_8667. C

I think this last is my favorite. πŸ™‚

Becca’s Winter Outfit (and News!)

Hello beautiful people!

It is I, ThePolkaDotPatriot, back again with a Becca photo shoot!

But first, some exciting news! I actually WON a category of the Paisley Awards! Jump over here to see Millie accepting the award, then come back and tell me what you thought of her little speech. (And also to see Becca pics, of course!)

Is there an outfit that you just love wearing during a certain season?

DSC_8596. C.jpg

This is some of Becca’s favorite Winter attire.

DSC_8597. C.jpg

The vibrant colors help brighten the darkest of chilly days.

DSC_8598. C.jpg

The perfect place to sit without getting all snowy!

DSC_8601. C.jpg

That playset came with our house–but since I’m the youngest in my family, it hasn’t been touched thus far. Except by the squirrels. They seem to like it. πŸ˜‰

DSC_8603 C.jpg

Look at those adorable snowflake treads!

Do you have any shoes with fun treads like this? I have a pair that have ferns/leaves on the bottoms.

DSC_8605. C.jpg

I took these as soon as I got off work yesterday. Sometimes it’s really tough to take photos on weekdays, since I essentially work a minimum of 50 hours a week.

DSC_8607. C.jpg

The sun’s been up later and later, and yesterday it was 35 and beautifully bright when I came home, so here we are!

DSC_8609. C.jpg

DSC_8611. C.jpg

That’s all, folks! πŸ˜€

I think its a sweet idea, and I encourage you to head over there and nominate some of your favorite blogs. ❀
Bye! πŸ™‚

Millie’s New Dress: A Review

Hey Everyone!

Long time no post, right?

The reason I’ve been absent is because my photo allowance on here in nearly gone. I’ve been debating whether or not to start paying for WordPress membership.

In the meantime, here’s Millie!

Her adorable dress is from the Etsy shop Designed4Dolls.

DSC_7715. CIt’s a great quality piece.

The only negative thing I have to say is for the postal service–the package came badly damaged and there were ink stains on the dress. Fortunately they’re pretty easy to hide in photos.

DSC_7716. C.jpg

DSC_7719. C.jpg

My family is moving into a house in the next couple weeks. These pictures were all taken there.

The previous owners left a garden behind for us. πŸ˜€

Anyone want some tomatoes? We have a LOT. πŸ˜‰
