In need of a colour fix

So it's raining again. And it's grey. And windy. I know I am immensely lucky and very grateful not to have been affected by the floods and other damage caused by this horrid weather - and my heart goes out to those who have - but it still leaves me rather down in the dumps. Until spring arrives, you can usually find me ransacking the house for happy, colourful, pretty things to photograph to cheer myself up. I start to get twitchy if my photostream sits unchanged for too long. So I thought what better time to take some new Blythe shots and give my Red Bubble shop a little refresh...

First up is my Snowflake Sonata doll, customised by Minnalove. I made a little bedding set out of some vintage fabric scraps leftover from making my cushions. I absolutely adore these prints and couldn't bear to see any go to waste. They really are so happy and cheerful, don't you think? Just the thing for this time of year!

Next up is my Tarts and Tea Blythe doll, modelling my favourite ever Blythe dress, made by Lounging Linda (I snapped this up at Blythecon New York). I think it was made for her!! The chaise longue is actually a jewellery box - but it is the perfect size for Blythe :) My Simply Guava also makes an appearance, wearing a gorgeous dress made by Jaszmade, also snapped up at BCNY.

For a bit of variety and another splash of colour, I picked up some macarons from a local cafe. Biggest bonus being the nomming after the photoshoot!

All of the images above, and more, are available from my Red Bubble shop as postcards, greeting cards and prints in a variety of formats.

I ordered a batch of postcards recently and was really pleased with the quality - I've got them propped up around the house to cheer me up :)
