Brighton Fashion Passport Umbrella Great for Doll Collectors

Brighton Fashion Passport Umbrella ☔️ 🌂 

A fan of Brighton Jewelry, I signed up for their list some time ago. I like their whimsical, artistic designs in Jewelry and have added a few pieces to my collection over the years.

This week my eye was caught by this colorful Fashion Passport  umbrella. It’s not quite my style, yet my eye was drawn back to it, and I realized—the patterns looks like fashion dolls!

This eye-catching design would make a great accessory for doll collectors and for a short time, it’s a free gift with a purchase of $100 or more. You can thank me later!
Here I’m sampling some of the goodies at Brighton Jewelry.
Who says “less is more???” :-)

Embassy Suites Cool Springs Hosts American Girl Parties


A recent business presentation brought me to the Embassey Suites Hotel in the Cool Springs area of Nashville/ Franklin.

After the exciting RF business opportunity meeting led by several local million-dollar earners,  (which was somewhat interrupted by loud music from the meeting in the room next door),  I was too wound up to simply drive home, so I unwound by exploring the lobby area.

There I came across a display of the award-winning Luciana doll from American Girl.

The display included the book that accompanies the doll about Luciana as well as a small but colorful poster advertising American Girl birthday parties at the Embassy Suites hotel.


Have your next Birthday Party at the Embassy Suites, American Girl Style!

According to the poster, girls are invited to invite 3 of their BFFs to a Birthday Party at the Embassy Suites American Girl Style and take home American Girl gifts.

Embassy Suites are known for comfortable lodging for guests and good accommodations for meetings. Now they may be establishing themselves as the go-to place for local birthday parties for little girls!

If you know a little girl who loves American Girl dolls, you might want to check it out!

Winter Fun with Minecraft Figures

Mincraft figures make for fun winter dioramas. I chose the colorful 3" Minecraft 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.

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:
