Julia’s wearing the same dress she wore last week, but this week Amelia and Matilda from A Girl For All Time borrowed a couple of Julia’s dresses (Matilda’s wearing the dress Julia came in and Amelia’s wearing the Edwardian Tea Dress).  Julia is about 2 inches taller than the A Girl For All Time dolls, but only a little bit fatter, so the dresses fit pretty well.  Tea Party Time!

Karito Kids have been discontinued for a few years now. I tracked down 3. As you may remember from a 30 days with Mini Kit post, I found Pita on walmart.com and was thrilled to use my employee discount. Pita is gorgeous, but I really had my eye on Lulu. I found her on ebay, still in her box, for a really good price. Then I had 2 brunettes, and needed a blonde. My first choice was Piper, but then I learned that Zoe had freckles!! I found Zoe on amazon for a not-as-good price (more than I paid for Pita). Amazon told me that she did not have her box or her book, which I was fine with, but they didn’t tell me she was also missing her hat and gloves. She arrived in a box sitting down, and her pants are all stretched out from sitting for who knows how long. And she has some hair issues. She’s the first play doll that I’ve ever bought used, and I know these are all things that would happen in her life anyway, but it’s so weird that I wasn’t there for them. I’m even a little sad about her. So, I’m pretending that I got her for as cheap as I got Lulu, and that I paid a little extra for Lulu because she’s super gorgeous. All three of them are extraordinarily beautiful.  I’ll take better pictures eventually, but here’s a little taste of their beauty.

Here is Taryn wearing Leonie’s Crochet Coordinates. This is one of the first Maplelea outfits I bought ever. I love crochet, and it seemed to fit Alexi’s style (Alexi was the only Maplelea I had back then). The girls usually wear this with the yellow tights it came with and the black School Scampers shoes, but in this photo Taryn skipped the tights and wore her Sunshine Shoes.
