... 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.

Miss "Perfection"

This is MAUVE, my girl number eight: she's a Korean Limited Edition "Velvet Minuet" that I bought in January 2004. Compared to my previous girls she has very pale skin (which she's very proud of, and never~ever suntan) and, instead of the spooky orange eyes, she's got these lovely apple-green eyes.
She's a fashion model, she loves the 1950', her style-icon is Audrey Hepburn; here she's wearing one of her favorite dresses from "Par Avion", and her hair is perfectly coiffed after a brushing at "Ricci Salon".

She's also my first girl with nail polish!
