Check out what my dollies are up to this weekend!  Here are Amelia and Clementine enjoying an ice cream treat.  Doesn’t the backdrop look amazing?  It’s from Samantha’s Scenes and Settings.  The table and ice cream are from a set from American Girl–2007 or so.  Adorable! ice cream parlor 001

Today we meet Amelia Elliot, a beautiful girl from Victorian London. I bought her from www.agirlforalltime.us and she is gorgeous.  She has a book called Amelia’s Inheritance.  She arrived at my house on the day before Thanksgiving 2012.  A Girl For All Time is a pretty young company, and right now Amelia only has 2 outfits (3 if you count the outfit she comes in), but they’re both great.  Her Victorian Party Dress looks great in front of the new Gala Party Scene from American Girl:


And here’s a closeup of her beautiful rosy cheeks:


I love these dolls, and the whole idea of the A Girl For All Time line.  I can’t wait for Clementine to be released this September, and whatever dolls will come after that.

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!

It took more than a week to get here, but Julia is finally here. She’s a Carpatina, and her dresses are amazingly gorgeous. So much detail! It made them a little hard to put on. And in my opinion, her hair is too long. It keeps getting in the way, and it’s already much less smooth than it was when she arrived. But she is soooo pretty!

I finally got a chance to take more pictures of Amelia and Matilda. In case you don’t know, Amelia and Matilda are from A Girl For All Time. They’re a UK company, but they also have a shipping center in the US. I got both dolls and all their dresses shipped for $20. So the dolls represent different periods of British history. Matilda goes to the court of Henry VIII to be near her cousin Katherine Howard (Henry’s fifth wife–beheaded), and Amelia is a Victorian schoolgirl (her book isn’t available in the US yet). I really liked Matilda’s book. It’s a lot more mature than American girl; Matilda’s cousin is beheaded and has to sleep with the king after all. Though it does talk about the Tudors’ bathroom habits more than I’d prefer. I’m beyond excited for Amelia’s book and more dolls in the line. They’re gorgeous! Their clothes are exquisite! Stay tuned for pictures of their other dresses.

New dolls!

Amelia and Matilda arrived on Wednesday. I got back from Canada, walked home really fast, ate a cheeseburger really fast, ripped their boxes open, shoved them in my suitcase, then ran to catch the last bus out of town to go to my parents’ house. Here are 2 pictures I took of Amelia on the ferry.
