... 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.

Bath time

DAWN and her friend Posie getting ready for shampoo

On the right, wearing pink, is my DAWN: she's a "Pow Wow Poncho" and she was given to me in December 2002 by a girlfriend called Aurora, so this Blythe was named AURORA DAWN. I love, love, love her gorgeous long red hair, her pink lips and rosy cheeks.

Of all my girls this is the "hippy" one: she is totally stuck in the'70 and she only wears vintage clothes (either stolen from my old Skipper, or from the Disco Girls-World of Love collections). I don't think she has a job... she just seems to spend all her time smoking funny things!
