Ready for Easter! (Mostly)

Easter 2014

I recently upgraded my phone, and as I was looking through old pictures (of which there were many – I’m really bad about clearing off my pictures…), I found this one from Easter last year! Back before the days of MINI MAD, when I was still figuring out the basics of photographing dolls. Back then I only had Isabelle, Caroline and Marie Grace.

This year, I didn’t have time to set up as nice of a display. My husband and I are opting for more Spring cleaning (read: purging) and less Spring decorating this year, so our only real Easter-ish decorations are…

Easter-y Group

Yep, you guessed it, dolls.

I have to admit, Sienna, Kanani, Arista, and Caroline look more like they’re ready for Valentine’s Day than Easter dressed in so much pink, but it works for now. I was tempted to get Samantha’s Special Dress to add a little blue-green into the mix, but I just couldn’t pass up her Travel Coat and Hat. There’s just something about it that I absolutely love! (And there’s no way I’d ever be able to sew my own… Not right away, anyway.)

Bunnies and more!

Chocolate and bunnies – two of my weaknesses…

At least I have plenty of Easter bunnies! Even before I had rabbits as pets, I think I’ve always like rabbits better than chicks. Chicks are pretty cute, but it’s hard to top the silly, sweet fluffballs that are rabbits. I really love how detailed the chocolate bunnies from Kit’s set are. They look like they could be real chocolate! (I like to think of mine as dark chocolate. My husband and I are both dark chocolate fiends.)

Caroline and Arista

Channeling the Past

I was originally going to have Caroline wear Samantha’s dress, coat and hat, but she looks so good in Kit’s dress, I changed my mind. Caroline looks good in any era – though I never seem to have her dressed in anything from her actual year of 1812. Oh well. I really like Arista in Samantha’s clothes. With her brown hair and eyes, she is a pretty good stand in (and I prefer her side bangs to Samantha’s pie bangs).

I hope you and yours have a wonderful Easter filled with food, family and friends! ♥

  1. Happy Easter! The girls are lovely and Samantha’s coat is stunning. Do you find you appreciate clothes more on blogs than in the AG catalog? I do for some reason.
    Sometimes I do feel our doll love is at odds with our small space. Brianna was good about going through stuffed animals to give to Operation Christmas Child because we have added doll items recently. We drove by an 1800s mansion for sale and said “Bet we could fit a lot of dolls in there!”

    • I do! I feel like you see a truer representation of the clothes on blogs, compared to AG’s every-pleat-must-be-perfect sort of pictures. Haha, I know that feeling well. 🙂 I’ve been trying to weed through my stuff lately, too. I tend to hold on to things that I don’t really use or like on the off chance that I might need them for something (and I almost always never do), and I’m trying to break that habit so I have more room for the stuff I actually want/like!

  2. Cute photos! I’ve got to quit looking at your photos, I already bought the Shimmer and Lace Party dress and now I’m loving Samantha’s coat. 😉 I agree with Jen@DollsBetweenUs, so many times the photos on blogs are much better than the AG ones, not just for clothing though, I have two dolls that I probably wouldn’t have bought had I not seen other pics. For kids maybe it’s not as big of an issue, but I think adult collectors look at different things.

    Nothing wrong with dolls as decoration either! I think you have them dressed perfectly for the holiday.

    • Thank you! 🙂 Yeah, I don’t think I would’ve bothered looking at Caroline or Marie-Grace if it hadn’t been for other people’s pictures of them. Haha, I have to catch up to my mom – she’s really good about dressing her dolls for each holiday.
