... in the Summer of 2002 a friend gave me a copy of Gina Garan's book "This Is Blythe" ... one look at her dolls and I was hooked, so in September I bought my very first Blythe: a "All Gold in One" and I named her BLEETHEUX.

My second doll was a "Bohemian Beats" and I named her HORTENSIA, an old-fashioned latin name which I just love, and up to now she is probably still my favorite girl!

Over the years I bought more dolls and I now have 14 Blythes: each one has been named, they have very defined personalities and they have traveled with me quite extensively, in their very stylish personalised wardrobes.
For quite sometime I have not paid much attention to my dolls, but now I'm again very attracted to them, so I've decided that I will post a different picture of one girl every day.

Violette goes out in the evening

Violette was so excited... she went out - on a school night - to our friend birthday celebration! Here she is with the "B.DAY" girl

No alcohol for her (she's too young) strictly Coca~Cola, and she was home before midnight!

Cool Girl

HORTENSIA chilling on the balcony at the hotel in Saint-Malo in the Summer of 2003.
Isn't she the prettiest? I know, I know, she has an attitude but... I still love her!

Is that a BlyPod?

BLEETHEUX loves music, while Raoul looks confused... as always!

Off to Shanghai

I know I said that I did not like BLEETHEUX original make-up: too orange, too tacky, too spooky, in fact I later cleaned her with solvent (and I made a mess :( ...poor girl!)
but in this picture she reminds me of the Orangina drink.
