Golden Age of Doll Couture in Nashville


When the Golden Age of Doll Couture convention came to Nashville recently, a few dolls were designed just for the Nashville show. One of the prettiest was not even a new design, but was a special dye job just for the event. In honor of the Madra doll's 10th anniversary, the Doll Couture convention even had a few of the very limited edition Careless Kisses Madra outfits (sometimes called "Stolen Kisses") dyed a soft pink just for their table displays.

Resin Pilgrim Figures

Resin Pilgrim figurines have become popular Thanksgiving holiday decor in the past few years as we remember the brave Pilgrims who came to America and established the first official Thanksgiving in 1621, at Plymouth Plantation, in Massachusetts. These colorful Pilgrim figures can be found in a wide variety of stores, from florists, to grocery stores and from craft stores to gift stores.

What is Raffia?

I was recently in a party story at Nashville West on Charlotte Pike and found a delicate raffia trim in a perfect scale to make Gene, Tyler and similar 16" sized dolls a Hawaiian or Polynesian grass skirt. Raffia palms are native to tropical regions of Africa, and Central and South America and grow the longest leaves in the plant kingdom. The long, fibrous leaves are sturdy and flexible and great for grass skirts if you can find it in the right scale.
