Sleeper Sunday and reactions to reborns.

So, here’s my Victoria in her latest sleeper. We have dinosaurs of different colours along with tiny landscape elements. I thought it was fun, and I like dinosaurs though that might change if I ever bumped into one! (Good job they aren’t around now!)

Reactions to reborn dolls

Now, I know some people don’t like babies or are nervous of them. But dolls?

Why do I mention this?

Well, I’ve shown Aimee and Victoria to 3 people. Only one would get near them. The other two freaked out!

To me, they’re works of art, and very beautiful, especially Aimee who does look quite lifelike!

I suppose it’s a tribute to the artist that people freak out 🙂

Anyone else with Reborns experience the same thing? By the way, I don’t force them on people, they’ve asked to see them. Also, I’m trying to understand, and I’m not complaining, I just don’t get it, LOL!

yet another haul and a photo shoot !!

All the clothes that I bought recently!

I had a doll clothes trying on session yesterday, since I bought more clothes on Friday! I really should stop buying baby clothes. Im running out of room! storage is at a premium and its getting even harder with my new hobby!!! Im cramming everything into my workroom and its getting a little too cosy LOL!!

I hope you like the pictures. Here’s how I am storing my girls:

This is actually a wash basket, since it is the easiest and cheapest option. Of course Id love to have a proper cot to show them off in but I just don’t have the room!!!

How do you store/display your babies? Id love to know!!!

I watched a brilliant video by Raendom Reborns on Youtube, and in it she tells some important information on storing reborns.

The Video Link is :https://youtu.be/pSySs8xLeaM

She also links to some articles about the subject.The best one in my humble opinion is :

This one

I hope all this info helps! it helped me (my wash basket has holes and is covered with a muslin cloth to keep the plastic away from direct contact with my girls.)

take care!


Victoria’s new outfit and a new baby in the basket :)

So, I couldn’t resist changing Victoria into the new romper:

She looks lovely in it, but I might have to change that nappy, she looks a bit odd 🙂

And……the stork came! I have a new baby!

Her name is currently Aimee, that’s the name the artist gave her. Not sure if I’ll keep the name or not.

Here’s a few pictures of her, but really they don’t do her justice!

Her hands and feet look a little strange because of the lighting. They’re actually stunning!

I actually got quite emotional when I saw her, she’s so realistic!

Eternal infants made her, they’re on eBay. The seller is dog_dog1234. Her sales and after sales service is fabulous and she has 100% feedback!

I hope you like all the pictures. I’ll probably take more pictures tomorrow because I’ll change “Aimee” then, after my friend has seen her:)

I’ve been shopping!

It was my friends birthday today, and it was a Milestone one! So, we went shopping at the range, hobbycraft and Poundland, and Asda.

I got lots of goodies:

The beautiful strawberry dress was bought by my friend, the other dungarees I bought. The cot blanket was only £4:00 but turned out to be a bit small, I’ll show you what I’m doing with it in a future post.

The nappies were not really what I wanted but I didn’t make it to Lidl where apparently Velcro nappies are sold.

The sheep toy and dummy were from Poundland. Although the sheep cost 2:00!

We did have a lovely day though !

The bouncing baby :)

Woo, it’s been a while!

I’ve been on holiday, hence the lack of posts.

I took Victoria with us. I’m very blessed to have a husband that didn’t mind her coming, and helped with posing her, looking for clothes, and even found her a baby bouncer to put her in!

So….here’s the pictures from our trip! It’s the first time I’ve taken a doll out, and although I didn’t quite make it to the “public ” stage, it was still fun!

Ready to go! It was very early when I took this picture, we had a long way to go!

A very tiring day:)

Well hello baby!

New dress! I love it, I think it suits her !

Everyday I’m cuddling ! A new onesie!

Another tiring day!

Going out again!

On the way home!

When we got home Aunty had finished the layette off! It’s also got mittens and leggings too!

And finally- in the bouncer that my husband found in a charity shop!

Sorry it’s so full of pictures! I hope you like them all!
