Betwixt & Between

February 9, 2012

Oh boy, it’s been a while. Do you miss me? I sure miss everyone! I know my last few posts lacked any substance and I tried to get back into the rhythm for the holidays, but eventually decided to just take a break from miniatures and this blog for a bit. Hope you didn’t mind. I’ve […]

Shopping For the Dollies

July 9, 2011

I’ve been doing a bit of shopping for them and I am at the point where I’m happy with the way they look (for the most part). I bought a wig from Mimiwoo.com for Dakota. The wig was made specifically for Volks 1:6 scale Dollfies and was a bit overgrown for for him. I was expecting […]

June 10, 2011

I recently purchased some clothing for Dakota (and by recent, I mean weeks ago, but just got around to blogging about it) from an Etsy shop called Crazyhandmade. Part of the problem with Dakota being a tiny boy BJD is that the tinies clothing market is dominated by girly stuff. Affordable boy clothing seems pretty rare. I […]

Fairyland Ball Jointed Dolls for 1:12 Scale!

January 14, 2011

After some delays caused by the snowstorm that hit New England recently, my first asian ball jointed doll FINALLY came yesterday. He’s from a S. Korean company called, Fairyland, but I ordered it through their official US retailer, Denver Doll Emporium. I outlined it all in the old BJD for 1:12 Scale post on the details and why […]

Little People for Your Little House

March 2, 2010

I want to share with you two great doll makers I found as I was searching for little people to live in my dollhouse. The first is Mike Barbour who is a member of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans or IGMA (no surprise there!) who specializes in unique, hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind dolls, as seen in […]
