Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas



Merry Christmas Eve!

I sit here typing out this blog post when I should be cleaning my room/sewing/napping while kind of watching the Seahawks game. I'm really excited.... because it snowed yesterday! I managed to get some really fun pictures of some of my BeForevers, but sadly a few were accidentally deleted πŸ˜ͺ
I'll be sure to try and post if I get any doll things for Christmas. I just received my Lea order yesterday, I had to order some stuff during the free shipping bit because I hadn't bought the Lea stuff I wanted earlier in the year.


I straight up love Felicity's Christmas ensemble in the snow! The red and blue look so great!


I don't have Rebeka's meet hat, which would go with this coat, and I forgot about her muff, and practical shoes - she's wearing her heels.


Caroline enjoys skating on Lake Ontario when it freezes over. It's actually my driveway.


Elizabeth stays warm in her quilted cloak.


Let me know in the comments what doll stuff you asked for for Christmas!

Love,

Willow

Back from Hawaii {with Lea} || Part 1



   And I'm back! Hawaii was so warm compared to Washington weather 😰 

So some of these photos were taken when the sun was going down or already had gone down, so they're a bit grainy 😠 but I thought I'd post them anyways 😊


Lea at the beach.


Lea making sand angels!


Lea's going to take some pictures now πŸ“·


Gotta love that butterfly clip πŸŽ€


Lea sitting on her {borrowed} paddleboard.


Lea carrying the paddleboard.

Lea surfing on her paddleboard 🌊


Me and Lea! We're at the beach here, and the photos from this location are the two pictures at the top, and the first one with Lea and the paddleboard. Photo by my sister Darrion.


So we had a great time in Hawaii! I still have lots of pictures that I haven't edited, so stay tuned for those!
So for those of you who think that I should get an instagram, what should I call it? I'm thinking just plain fellowshipofthedolls, but what do you think? Comment down below and let me know!

Love,

Willow + Lea

P.S.
New header after like, a whole year! Also, saw Moana last week, it's really awesome, especially after literally just being in Hawaii!

Off to Hawaii {with Lea!}



{photography by Darrion of Sincerely Darrion}

   Hey guys!
   Yep, you read right, I got Lea! I actually got her yesterday {Halloween} at the American Girl store in Seattle *cough* actually Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood *cough*. We didn't bring our camera to document the occasion, but I used my handy dandy smartphone to get some pictures of the process! Those will be below.
   So the reason I got then was so that I could bring her to Hawaii with me! See, my parents had a big anniversary this year, so they wanted to go somewhere fabulous. We originally were going to go on a cruise to Alaska, but between busyness and the desire for warmth, we ended up with plane tickets to Hawaii!
   I'm excited to say that I will be bringing Lea, and hopefully will be taking lots and lots of pictures of and with her! We'll be going to the beach {!} and a luau {!!} and probably hikes or something.
   So I bought Lea's Exclusive Collection, so Lea, her accessories, her beach dress and then her swim set. I'll also be bringing her hiking outfit, which I bought in August.


{now for the phone photos. all photos of yours truly are by my sister Darrion. except the selfie.} 


Me and human Lea! I did have to lean down a little to get this photo, which is a rarity for me :)


I was going to lunch in a few minutes, so took a photo so that I'd be able to remember which doll I'd picked so I could buy her when I came back. I actually ended up buying her about twenty minutes later as opposed to an hour later after lunch, and debated the one I'm pointing to above and another Lea, but ended up picking the Lea I'm pointing at.





















Since it was Halloween, there was this photo op thing set up, but no one using it. I took the opportunity to get some silly pictures.


Me and Lea.


Me and Lea again.


   So I will {hopefully} be posting some of the pictures I get of Lea {and me!} in Hawaii when I get back. I can't really post on my phone {yet} and I don't have a laptop {yet as well}.
   Let me know in the comments of you like the silly pictures I took at AG and if you'd like me to do more like them in the future! Also let me know down below if you think I should get an doll instagram!

Love,

Willow

I'm also going to be volunteering as a daycamp counselor for a week this August as well as camping for a few days in that month as well.
I'm also going to my first concert soon, Shawn Mendes! 
So if you don't hear from me, that's why. Of course, if you comment, I try my utmost to respond asap :)

New Additions || Part Two

   Thanks to everyone who commented and guessed :) So here's my "big" reveal ;)

   So the friend I've mentioned in my Doll Journey page who sold me Victoria, Francisca and Isabelle sold me Mia and Felicity. I'm going to get Lissie's head replaced soon, not quite sure when though.

   So I'd gone to a garage sale about 20 minutes from where I live and bought several retired AG things from there, and the lady had another one about 5 minutes from where I live at her house {the other one was at her daughter's house} and she had a gently used Nellie and a NRFB Lanie. Of course I bought them :)
   I basically paid retail for all of them, except for Lissie, who was about half price because she has a sticky eye {we call her Winki Lissie} and her hair is in used condition.
   I was thinking of getting Lea during her sale, but getting four dolls was a bit much. And a bit of a strain on my finances. But I'm good now :) Save and work, kids ;)

Miana (Mia) Joy St. Clair


Felicity Anne Merriman


 Helen (Nellie) O'Malley


 Elaina (Lanie) Holland


Love,

Willow

Julie Photoshoot || Mix Print Maxi Dress

So I bought Julie's Mix Print Maxi Dress from the AG store,
along with several other things a week or so ago.
I'd been eyeing this Julie outfit for awhile, and I'm so glad I bought it!

So here's some pictures! I took these out on our driveway in cloudlight,
but I brought along my handy-dandy light reflector!
You can see the big white thing reflected in her eyes, if you look closely.













So I'm thinking about starting a youtube channel,
if anyone actually reads this,
would you be interested in watching?
I filmed myself doing a few video reviews a few days ago.


Love,

Willow + Julie
