The other day I got distracted. As I always do. I had just dropped my kiddos off at school & we were in the middle of a huge snow storm! That’s right, a full on snow attack in the beginning of October. We also had lots of snow in September.

Can I tell you how much I LOVED it. We dig that kinda thing in Telluride, CO. We live here ’cause we live for snow. My Blythe dolls begged to get dressed up & go outside…

I have owned these two lovely ladies for a bout a year now.

They only own the dresses they came with.

No shoes for the cold snow.

The good news is, I just ordered them some winter hats, skinny jeans, high boots and funky tops.

I have one handmade reindeer hat that they must share.

I am crazy in love with it. I need to have someone make me one.

Everything was fine until little blondie fell into the snow.

She actually enjoyed it and posed nicely.

At the end of the day all was OK. They got a bit snow covered…but had a dang good time!

So artistic Marla! Feel like I just popped in on an art installation. They are very intriguing looking dolls. They remind me of the artist who did the paintings in the 1960’s of the kids, dogs and cats with the huge eyes. Fun post!

Ahhhhh….I’m so glad you can appreciate this post. I had a total blast with it!! I believe Blythe is from the 60’s ~ hard to find these days but I tracked her down!

Thanks so much Jeanette! When I stumbled on these dolls (via a book) quite a few years ago I was hooked. Glad I could make the introduction ;)
