Daughter's off to college, so I scavenged the attic for a doll. There are WHOLE FAMILIES living up there! Who knew?
*grin*

Post: I'm so very excited that some of you liked my dolls!! Thanks BUNCHES for the ribbon! There were so many entries I really like in this challenge.

Waking up to so many wonderful congratulatory comments is a great feeling... almost like another ribbon. You folks ROCK at making a girl feel good. :)

I'm thinking maybe we should just adopt you and resolve the confusion! I laughed out loud this morning when I read your detail about "whole families" - yup - in a room by myself at 4:30am laughing! : ) Very sweet shot that makes me smile. A well deserved ribbon for the Too too. Congratulations!

Congrats on your Yellow Lydia! I expect to see more ribbons from you in the future. It's funny to see how many think you belong to the "Too" family! :-D

I love this picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2008 07:02:18 AM
Great shot! Gives a happy feel. Nice lighting on the dolls. Is the background a photo or the real thing? I assume a photo... if so good creative thinking... it works. If the real thing... even more impressive for getting the light just right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2008 08:25:13 PM
Love the lighting and the idea to take the shot from the back. Probably a ribbon winner. :)
