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…
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.)
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.)
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! ♥
