Winter Fun with Minecraft Figures

Mincraft figures make for fun winter dioramas. I chose the colorful 3" figures for these two shots.

The first diorama was done for the Minecraft Tribes page on Facebook and was made using a small indoor herb garden and miniature Christmas trees. Alex holds a redstone flare since she doesn't have a Christmas candle while Steve holds a sword to ward off the Creeper and Slime mobs who have invited themselves to the Christmas party.


The second scene was obviously shot in the snow to capture the snowy biome experience. Alex guards the TNT and a Villager works at his anvil in front of Steve's winter pagoda while the Creeper and the Slime plan mischief around the corner.

If you have a fun Minecraft Diorama photo, feel free to share it at the Minecraft PvP Servers group on Facebook.

Life.Church Decorates with Antique Dolls & Toys for Christmas



Life.Church in Oklahoma City was an antique doll-and-toy-lovers dream for Christmas!

A recent trip to Oklahoma City for the Christmas holidays brought me to Life.Church which was decorated for Christmas with antique toys in all shapes and sizes. Prominently featured in the displays were dolls of all kinds, seem standing and sitting  beneath Christmas trees as well as perched among their branches.


An antique Mattel Francie doll was seen next to her mod friend, Julia, and Raggedy Anns and Andies were to be found near several trees


Other antique toys were also prominently displayed around various colorful Christmas trees making Christmas at Life.Church a fun experience for old and young alike.

Belle Meade Plantation, located in Nashville's prestigious Belle Meade community, is a historic mansion whose grounds and buildings now serve as a museum. 

Although visitors usually go to enjoy the grounds, historic outbuildings and the mansion, there is also a gift shop on the grounds full of Civil War and Southern gifts, including some cute dolls and stuffed animals.

Beautiful dolls in Southern style dress join Raggedy Ann and some home-spun dolls in pretty array. 



Not to be outdone are plush ponies, puppies, bunnies and other stuffed animals for sale at Belle Meade Mansion.

Built in the 1820s by John Harding, the mansion is worth a visit to enjoy some of the history of Nashville and the South, but doll collectors will also enjoy shopping in the gift store for the cute offerings found there.

Six Reasons Not to Date a Serious Gamer



Since gaming, toys, dolls and action figures often overlap, here is a humorous look at what dating a serious gamer is like and why you should avoid the experience..


True confession: I once dated a serious gamer. For over a year. He wanted to teach me to game. I wanted to show him the sights in Nashville. So of course we spent most of our relationship in front of a monitor playing video games, or at least he did. 
Read about  the lessons I learned dating a gamer here:

World's Smallest Barbie Dolls



First of all, this is not the smallest Barbie in the world unless they mean "currently on the market!" Smaller Barbies have been produces for Hallmark ornaments as well as a Barbie doll Skipper once owned, to name a couple. However, these little "World's Smallest Barbie" miniatures are cute and they might very well be the smallest Barbies on the market right now at about 3" tall.

The little retro fashion dolls made by Super Impulse Toys come with tiny sunglasses.

I only saw two--the original 1959 Barbie doll and the 1971 Malibu Barbie.  These were for sale at Toys R Us for $4.99.  They are also available on Amazon.The little cuties are definitely worth a look!
