... 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.

Beach Babe Forever

COLETTE was my eleventh girls, she's a "Cinnamon Girl" and a gift from my sister for Christmas 2006!

Because of her tanned skin and her long sun~kissed hair she reminded me so much about a girlfriend of mine (named Colette) who was an avid wake-boarder and snow-border, so I always imagined that this Blythe was a mini version of my friend.
Sadly the girlfriend passed away recently, and now more than ever I like to imagine that my COLETTE will go on being a surfergirl, living a happy and carefree life in Hawaii, honoring a wonderful woman who tragically is no-longer with us.

COLETTE loves sushi, lime sodas, coconut oil for her skin and hair, and she mostly wears swimsuits and other beach outfits.
