... 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.

Daisies & Denim

This is CECILE - girl number ten - a "French Trench" that I bought in the summer of 2004 from a Japanese toys' shop in the East Village in New York City, so I decided that she's a French exchange student. She's trained as a Chef in France, and now she's making very cute cup-cakes for a pastry shop in NY, but she's planning to go back to Paris to learn more cooking secrets from the Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute!

While leaving in New York her style is a mix of cute & casual, here she's wearing an outfit from "Sugar Mag" and brown loafer shoes, very preppy...
