The Grass Is Always Greener...Or Does It Just Seem That Way?

Lucy and Dana decided to meet at Casey's for a couple of drinks and some nice conversation. They haven't been able to visit much of late due to Lucy working long hours and Dana dating Peter. They were finally able to meet up last Friday night. Sounds like Lucy's restless...






















I think Lucy will be in for a real surprise when she finally does get to New York, Chicago and San Francisco. She'll probably find out that none of them are as glamorous as she thinks they are. They're more crowded, congested and the cost of living is way higher than in Moreville. We'll see if she has a different perspective when she comes back home. :-)

New Clothes, New Residents

I crocheted a couple of new dresses for the ladies. Remember I talked about working on a blue-silver evening gown two posts ago? Well, I finally completed it, along with a green sheath-type short dress. Gina and Katherine were kind enough to take a few minutes away from their busy families to model them.




Here's a closer view.


Since my birthday was last week, I couldn't resist getting myself a couple of birthday presents. I wanted some mature-looking dolls to be moms to some of my teenagers and pre-teens.  I found the Dynasty dolls, Alexis and Krystal, on Amazon.


Here they are still in their boxes.


Here they are out of their boxes but still attached to their Mattel-provided backdrops.

Krystal

These dolls are so drop-dead gorgeous that they presented me with a dilemma. Do I re-body them and give them lives in Moreville, or do I put them back in their boxes where they'll be safe from dust and stick them on a shelf away from sunlight to just look at?  If I give them articulated fashionista bodies, chances are the gowns won't fit since they're sized for the model muse body. And a Moreville lifestyle requires movement and poseability.  Not sure what I'm going to do. What do you all think?  :-)

A Surprise for Cindi

It's Cindi's birthday, and this year she decided to give herself a present.  It was a well-deserved vacation consisting of two weeks of sun and surf at her beachside condo.  Little did she know that her peace and quiet were about to be disrupted...




































As much as Cindi fussed about wanting peace and solitude for her birthday, she really enjoyed being with her friends.  The fact that they all took time out of their busy lives to drive several hours to throw her a surprise party touched her heart deeply.  She loves them all.  The food came, the wine flowed, and a great time was had by all!  :-)
