A last trip

Image
I am sitting here in our living room and thinking about the trip we took to south Sweden, where we have our relatives and our cottage, during the Epiphany (Little Christmas) weekend. We usually do not take any trips during this season, because of the weather. It can be a bit moody in these times. It can be dry, sunny and almost feel like the Spring has arrived. Then it can be rainy, foggy and feel like late Autumn. And before you know it, you are in a snow storm, trying to see the road. 
With a control of the weather and several forecasts, we packed our car and drove the 6 hours to mother in law. The nurses had phoned us several times, telling us that she is not doing well. My anxiety kicked in and we did not know what to expect. When we arrived, she was in her bed - happy, talking and looked like a sun, shiny and warm, we she saw us. She said: "Oh, there you are! You came!" The nurse who was there at that point told that mother in law has been happy and waiting for us to c…

BJD FAQ

Image
I was tagged by Lise, on Instagram, to do this FAQ. I decided to take it over to my blog and answer the questions here.
1. How old are you? I am 46 years old. But I feel like 23. Haha!
2. What was your first BJD? It was a Dollmore Basic Sleepy Narsha girl. 
3. When did you join the hobby? I ordered my first doll in October 2011, but I had been searching for the perfect one about 4 years before that.
4. What is your grail doll? Grail is an interesting word. At the moment I do not think that I have any bigger grails, but I do have hopes and wishes to someday buy a couple of different dolls. But it would not hurt to have a MiniFee Rin with cute glittery eyes, big ears and some cute animal feet. 
5. What is your dolls clothing style? At the moment I feel that it is a bit dull. I would love to have some lace, pastels and layer on layer.
6. What do your loved ones think of the hobby? They are very OK with it and at times even active in decisions, talks and happenings in the doll world.
7. Are you…

A new year

Image
It's a typical 1st day of the new year. Foggy, gray and chilly. Some snowflakes fell earlier and gladly the snow gives a bit of light. The days are short, dark and you get tired easily. 
When I was a kid, I often heard the elderly talk about how you should make the first day of the new year a good one. No fuss, no late morning, being nice and happy, because the first day of the new year would reflect on the whole new year. So, hope that your 1st January has been a wonderful day. I do not know if there is any truth to this, but better be safe than sorry. I wish you the best for 2018!
Well, my first post in 2018 will be presenting the new head I bought from Dollmore. I was, in the beginning, not so keen on just buying a head but after many years of thinking I felt that I would give it a try. And it was a perfect way to upgrade my doll. 
At first I thought that I should just buy a wig and some new clothes for my Narshas, but I put a head in that order too. A couple of weeks in waiti…
