6 Weeks To Halloween! Great Halloween Printables For Your Dolls!

A few years ago I purchased this wonderful pattern and have raved about it every since!

This pattern by e-VINTAGEpatterns Etsy Shop is one of my favorites! It has so many wonderful printable for your dolls.

My nieces and I had ours printed at Staples and then we were able to create several goodies and costumes for our dolls. This is a great value especially if you plan on a dolly Halloween party! There was so many wonderful activities and hours of fun in this set!
You can check out this great listing in e-VINTAGEpatterns Etsy Shop offered at $4.99 and print as many items as you need!
We can not wait to share more Halloween Doll Play ideas with you next Friday!

Stylish Autumn Looks For Your Tween's Doll From Avanna Girl

Looking through Avanna Girl's Etsy shop it is hard not to get excited to see the fun and fashionable looks, like this Hounds-tooth Sheath Dress and Black Blazer. 
This outfit is sure to make your Tween's favorite and wish list! I love that little belt! Older tween's gravitate towards outfits that they feel look "older", as they get older they tend to lean less towards the pastel and princess stage when it comes to dolly fashion and more towards outfits such as these from Avanna Girl!


 Having fashion forward outfits for your tween's dolls wardrobe really helps keep doll play relevant. 
Shops like Avanna Girl on Etsy make it easy for girls to be excited about and interested in their dolls longer.

Beautifully Knit Ensemble's From Di's Divine Creation's Etsy Shop!

I am so excited to share a local to me etsy shop! Di's Divine Creations specializes in knit ensembles for 18 inch dolls and is located a short distance from where I live! Great for us Canadian 18 inch doll lovers!
Some of you may recognize Di's 18 inch doll model's as Daniela and Lily from Sisterhood in Town 18 inch Canadian Dolls. You can find out more about these beautiful dolls (which I wrote about last year) by clicking here.
Shop owner Di shared a bit about her shop with me recently and I am pleased to introduce you to her and her hand-knit creations ...
    " While I am a knit designer, I do not market my Etsy Shop as a place to purchase custom knitted designs exclusively, I am simply  a producer of quality knitted 18-inch doll clothes (I also sell my own dishcloth designs there as well)."
 For those of us who are knitters from the very basic knitters or aspiring knitters, to those who have been knitters for ever, you know how much work goes into creating each and every outfit! I am so thrilled to see shops like Di's Divine Creation's offering a modern take on a time honored traditional craft and making them available to doll lovers to enjoy !
 I also love that this shop is local and Canadian. The 18 inch doll movement has been slow to come to Canada and am I thrilled to see it catch on as well as see more high quality Canadian Shops for us to choose from. That being said our American Cousin's to the south are invited and able purchase items from Di's Shop as well!
Click here to visit Di's Divine Creation Etsy shop.  
I look forward to seeing what wonderful outfits for fall and winter  Di's Divine Creations comes up with next!

Sears Canada Wish Book Wonders!


I still get as excited to get the Sears Canada Christmas Wish Book every September. This year I was even more excited with the wonderful selection in 18 inch doll clothing by Newberry Dolls!
I was very excited to see the Baseball set for $19.99 This set caught my eye because of the Helmet! I can not wait to try it on my dolls!

This is such a great deal This is the Figure Skating Outfit is a steal at $19.99 it comes with everything you see here but don't let the photo fool you you actually get skates in the box not boots.
As a Canadian and Doll Lover I am thrilled with this set offered in the Christmas Wish Book and on line. Honestly what an amazing set for doll and hockey lovers. My nieces in Montreal are going to be head over heals for these sets and I am sure they will make the official Christmas Wish list!

You can order these outfits from Sears Canada on line by clicking here.
