Back to spotlighting the men..........Zeke.....

Back to spotlighting my gorgeous Tonner men, Zeke is a repainted Matt by the very talented Jenny Sutherland of JACS desgins. I've always been a huge fan of Jenny's work, especially her mandolls.
Zeke was the first of her mandolls that I was able to acquire. Since Zeke's arrival there have been quite a few other JACS men that have made their way to OH, but Zeke remains a favorite. He's also the only JACS man that was originally Matt.

Just a quick break, from focusing on some new pics of my Tonner men, to let Lace show off her new outfit from Janice Mundy. Janice was kind enough to send this adorable outfit for the girls as a runner up prize to a Valentine's guessing game she ran on the Riley Hugs and Kishes board. The girls always get so excited to get a package from Janice in the mail.

I think blue looks particularly good on Colin, although he looks good in anything IMHO!

Keeping the spotlight on some of my gorgeous Tonner males..........took some new pics of Colin recently. He still gives me goosebumps to look at him, and I"m still thankful to Sonya for allowing him to come and live in Ohio. He's one of those they will have to pry out of my cold, dead hands when I"m gone, LOL!

Spent some time taking some new photos of my Tonner repainted men this past weekend. Simon is a repainted/resculpted Matt by Sam at Halo. He was one of my very first male repaints and still remains an absolute favorite.

Gabi and Rico.........

One of my alltime favorite dolly couples, Rico by LN Harris and Gabi by DesignsbyMichele
It's a shame LN doesn't paint more men, as they are truly amazing!!

I really do think they make the perfect pair.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...........

I decided I might as well enjoy the snow a bit since I didn' t have a choice, LOL! Took my favorite MA doll, an Amanda Fairchild that I scalped and made into a wig doll, out to enjoy the weather..............
Well, ENJOY may be a bit of a stretch...........but I do love this outfit and it's perfect for this weather. She's standing on my front porch, which is covered by the way. Makes quite the pretty backdrop I thought.

I'm SOOOO tired of snow at this point. I just wish it would quit already. It has been snowing here since about 3am this morning, non stop. There are about 7-8" on the ground and it's just supposed to continue through the night into tomorrow. Luckily I was off work today, guess I may be using another vacation day tomorrow. The interstates look dreadful. They are reporting on the news this is the most snowfall in our area's history EVER for the month of February, and the month is only half over. Oh well, I"ll stop complaining. It could be I know West Va., DC, and norther VA, PA have gotten much worse.

The Tyler that made me fall in love with Tonner..........

Continuing on with my "nightwear" theme from a couple of days ago, I've decided to try and take new pics of all the girls on my lingerie/PJ/Peignor set shelf. I've collected Tyler from the beginning, but I have to admit I fell in love with the clothes first. The first year dolls did nothing much for me. I bought Millenium Ball as my first TYler, but I always thought that her make up was way too light for the hairstlye/dress. I remember when I first saw Look of Luxe in person, I was thrilled with the whole package, doll, makeup, hair, clothes......................she was the doll that truly made me fall in love with Tyler's world. (Well, her and Black and White Ball Sydney who was introduced the same year). Dressed here in Wake Up Call from the debut collection.

Serafina models Tucking In...........

I love Tonner's peignor sets and have managed to acquire most of them (that I'm aware of anyway) that were designed to fit the Tyler body. I have 2 shelves that house dolls displaying them in my doll cabinet. I finally decided it was about time to catalogue them through photos.
So, here's Serafina Pekkala from the Golden Compass line, modeling Tucking In, also from the Golden Compass line.

More lingerie/peignor set photos to come later in the week.

A little pink............

I loved the print on this material so much I couldn't resist commissioning a dress from Spampy in this fabric for Riley.

With Valentine's day around the corner, Riley and Marley decided to dress up in their new pink outfits from Spampy to celebrate a bit early.

Just thought I'd share a few pics of Alice and her sisters, Ellery and Riley. I asked Janice Mundy to make some coordinating outfits for me that could be used for Valentines Day, but that didn't "scream" Valentines Day, so that I could use them at other times as well. Since I love prints on a black background I was thrilled with what Janice came up with.
