Friday Five

Five of my favorite blog haunts!


Googled this one, but pretty sure it's Michelle's!

This blog has been mentioned by me several times, mostly in conjunction to Michelle's interviews and fabulous giveaways. Michelle interviews crafsters, customizers, and shop owners and puts together giveaways. Her blog also features a regular column titled, 'Blythe on a Budget' with tips for all of us who can't afford all the designer brands for ourselves, let alone our dolliees. Recently Michelle has posted a mini series on blogging! It was very helpful. Check her blog out for a good read!

2. Rosie Apples and Friends

Shamelessly lifted from RosieApples. Sooo cute!

Rosie's blog is what inspired me to work more seriously on my own blog! I read every entry she had posted when I first discovered it, and I have been a regular follower ever since. Her blog has a regular column called, "Teeny Tiny Tuesday," which features gorgeous pictures of her Rement each week. There are other fun bits, such as "Who Wore It Best" and Blythe DIY Tutorials.

3. Dollybird Blythe

Borrowed from Dollybird ~ This is one of my favorite pictures EVER!

I have followed this blog for a long time too! Dollybird writes about her own Blythes, as well as topics of interest to the Blythe community. This includes reviews of dolls, customization information, and features some of her sewing.

4. Mademoiselle Blythe

Fanny's gorgeous banner!

This is one of my very favorite interview blogs! Blogger Fanny Zara finds Blythe collectors, customisers, Kenner Restoration Specialists, and Fashion Designers. She then posts the interview and tons of beautiful photos. I love the new 150+ Blythe Collector interviews. The dolls in these collections are so impressive!

5. Smidge House

Photo 100% Borrowed from Carmen!

I became an obsessed fangirl of Carmen's perfect Barbie/Blythe sized furniture via etsy. This was made worse by the fact that she is a SWEETHEART to boot. I emailed her asking what type of tools she uses, and expecting either no response, or an, "I really can't divulge that, in case you can make what I make and ruin my life." Instead, I got a beautiful response almost immediately full of her knowledge and advice! (I should know by now...this community is full of wonderful people!) It wasn't until much later I found Carmen's blog. I love looking at her pieces that she repaints and details. They look amazing and difficult to believe what they started life as! Her blog is well written and funny, so all in all a great read!
