Little things

Sometimes, it's little things that matter in life, like a big mug of tea on the terrace after a day of hard work.

Well, probably as many doll collectors, I 've got that thing about small things like pieces of doll-scale furniture, vessels, etc.  I guess these will be the best souvenir for me. :)

The nicest mug from Cyprus I could find. I've seen many different colours and dozens of little plates.
My favourite mug from Crete. It comes with a little plate. There was also a porcelain spoon but it was out of scale so I didn't buy it. It has a little magnet.

All we've managed to collect till now.

What got caught in the net

Remember her..?
... and how she looked like the last time?
Well, I finished her latest temporary looks on the day I left home in June. And I've just remembered, I hadn't posted this!

She's a fairy again! :)
Still not perfect, but there's progress... of some kind.

The dream team: Aria

Some time ago I've promised to introduce all the dolls that I'd taken with me. I've already bored you to near death with Lagoona and showed off Ms Song. ;) Now it's time for Aria - Dynamite Girl, wave 1.

More photos and babbling below!

Hell. In high heels.

I've been working on River's image. Had loads of fun. Is it slightly better now?

"So...what kind of doctor are you?"
"Archaeology. Love a tomb."
"Oh, this is my friend River. Nice hair, clever, and has her own gun. And unlike me, she really doesn't mind shooting people."
"Can I trust you, River Song?"
"If you like. But where's the fun in that?"
All quotes come from Dr Who. :)

Hello, Sweetie!

I've bought a doll! Yeah, what a news... ;)

Barbie Basics #03-002
 I've been thinking about her some time ago. She has one of my favourite molds and she's quite unusual with those blond curls. She's a little too sweet, though. I gave up, because I didn't want her that badly for the original price.
But recently, with my obsession being fed on the approaching Dr Who's next season, well... She looks kind of like young River Song, doesn't she? And I found the doll priced down to 9.99 euros. :)

Alex Kingston as River Song
Now I simply have to wait until my doll grows older, 49 of age, because that's how my favourite River is. ;)

Accidents happen

For the first time since I came to Cyprus I decided to go public with dolls. We went to an aquarium near Agia Napa. There is a garden there, so I pulled out Lagoona and tried to take some photos. It was noon, rather warm, and the contrast of sunlight and shade made it very difficult to take any decent photos. Actually, I made one. My company was growing impatient, so I grabbed Lagoona and while tucking her into a bag, noticed that she'd lost a fin. Went back looking for it and, hurray, found it in the sand! I happily put it into the bag with Lagoona and hurried away. But at home I couldn't find it! And it's gone for good. :(

Last moments of Lagoona being complete.
She doesn't seem to despair, so neither will I.

She snatched boots from the Fallen Angel Stardoll

The Island of Aphrodite at night

 Or, I've moved again and landed in... the middle of nowhere, as it seems at the moment. I hope to find my way around here soon.

What can one do at night in a hermitage like this, but to howl to the moon?
