Spring Flowers with the Dolls

    Monster High Lego Venus McFlytrap

Spring flowers are so pretty. 
I'm not much of a gardener, but I did manage to plant a few bulbs to have something to look forward to in the spring!  

I love seeing such vibrant colors again after a long winter!
Winters where I live can feel like they take up almost half the year so spring is such a welcome sight!

The green colors in Spring are so vibrant and lovely! 

I thought Venus McFlytrap would be a perfect little character to take some photos of in the flower garden.  She's a crunchy, earthy gal-much like me in college!  Haha.

Of course, we can't forget about Poison Ivy! 

Little Button was totally into this, and we had fun setting up poses. 

Tulips only last for a little while, but they are so pretty.
I think in the fall I want to try to plant some red ones.  I think large groups of red tulips are just gorgeous!

I love taking photos of dolls with flowers or in trees.  I think that may be my favorite setting.
Do you guys have spring flower beds where you are?

Since we're on the topic of flowers, does anyone have suggestions of some good shade loving perennials?

Little Marie-Grace and the Lillies of the Valley (American Girl Mini Doll)

Hi everyone!
Thank you so much for your amazing and kind feedback on my "Messy Doll Room" post.  Your support and advice means so much to me!
The only change I've done so far is get rid of the couch, added a white bookshelf, cleaned up the floors and bought some white paint to brighten up the room. 

As the weather warms up (we're having a terribly chilly spring so far!) I hope to get the walls painted before I start setting up shelves. :)
I'll keep you all posted!

A few years ago, I picked up mini Marie-Grace from the American Girl doll line.  She was one of my first mini dolls and I have always loved the 18 inch version of her, but she was retired by the time my AG radar was turned on so I don't currently own her.

I really enjoy these mini dolls because they're so easy to cart along for on-the-go photo shoots.
I love how they are tiny little replicas of their larger doll counterparts.

Her hair is extremely soft and silky.  I love the tiny braids. 

She looks super cute in her forest of lilys-of-the-valley. 

These tiny little flowers smell SO GOOD! 

Do any of you have Marie Grace or any other AG minis?
One of my favorite Instagram accounts that has a lot of AG mini photography is: @pawsonkeys

On another note, after 6 months of winter, I am in love with all of this GREEN. :)

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week. My brother and sister-in-law are visiting from Florida with their 2 month old baby (my first nephew!) this week so I'm excited to get my "baby-fix".  The girls are very excited to meet their new cousin. :)

Until next time!
xoxo Farrah :)
