Shelly's Isabelle as Box Troll

This year for Doll-o-ween  Elyse, Josey and Charlotte decided to go historical instead of spooky. From left to right, Elyse is Barbara Frietchie, who, at age 95, waved the Union flag in the middle of the street to block Stonewall Jackson's troops as they passed through Frederick in the Maryland Campaign of the Civil War. Charlotte is Annie Oakley, the American sharpshooter and exhilition shooter. Josey is Frida Kuhlo, the self-portrait artist from her home country of Mexico. - Fawn

*NEWS* AG Opening 3 Boutiques in Mexico City, Mexico!

*Reader Photos* Violet and Isabelle's Doll-O-Ween

Here are pictures of my daughter Lydia's American Girl dolls having Fall fun.

The dolls are visiting the pumpkin patch then they are having a party. 

They're enjoying the pumpkin pie (made with sponge and Sculpey bake clay), chocolate chip cookies (Sculpey), candies (miniature erasers), popcorn and drinks (AG sleepover accessories).

After the party they're going to trick-o-treat. My daughter and I made  the felt goody bags. 

MAG #25 Violet is dressed in AG genie costume, I made a head band for and Isabelle is dressed in OG as a mermaid with a blue hair bow I also made myself. Her shoes are OG from a different set and her seashell necklace was bought separately.

We also made sweets from Sculpey: M&Ms, chocolate bars, Hershey's kisses.

Isabelle and Violet got a lot of treats from Alejandra (OG doll)
and couldn't wait enjoy them!

My 9 year old daughter Lydia and I just love your blog, and read it daily! Happy Fall to you all!

At the Pumpkin Patch!

My doll's enjoyed a visit to the pumpkin patch!!

Happy Doll-O-Ween!

*Reader Photos* DIY Halloween Room

Madelon was inspired by Shelly's Halloween scene, she sent in photos of her DIY room.

 "Seeing Shelly's beautiful rooms reminded me that I had the same Journey Girl winter set. This room cost me .48 cents additional to complete."

"I spent .48 cents on sparkly Halloween stickers then attached them to plastic plates from Party City,"

"I cut gold spider web fabric to cover the cushion."

"The tree came from a Hallmark store a few years ago."

"The carved pumpkins were Halloween lights."

"The fireplace, chairs, table (and I believe, rug) are by Journey Girls."
