Model Monday: Kaya

Cool Inside and Out

The temperature and humidity have gone up again, so we're looking for shade while outside. I'm not complaining because I know it is cooler here than where Great Auntie Mame and Steampunk Addie are in Arizona. You have to plan for all the places you might be or visit. Just like almost any other time when temperatures are iffy, light layers are best. This is what I pulled together for today.

The Shoot

Which is your favorite photo? Or photos? I know I have a couple.

The Details

Eyelet is fresh and cool; a great layering base. I took the OG Wearever and Ever camisole and topped it with the short-sleeve denim, button or snap down blouse from the AG Play Outfit (retired). 

The dark pink shorts from the AG Coconut Fun Outfit add a pop of color and style with the rolled cuffs.

Our pink power strappy sandals from The Queen's Treasures match the shorts perfectly. 

The final touch, a blue circle pendant. The silver chain, even doubled, is a little long. We'll consult Lady Vanyer for some assistance with this.

Bijoux has been sticking closely to me lately. I'm not sure why, but I don't shoo her away either. Besides, she was fun during the shoot; kept the energy high, but not too high. (giggles)

So glad you stopped! Come again soon!

Mini Adventure #12

Field Trip and Pizza Party

Felicity, Holly, Rebecca, 2 or more

First Stop

Look at all the cute little animals!
So cute!
Which is your favorite?
I don't know if I can choose. (pauses in thought) The monkeys.
The hedgehogs.
I like the kitty.
Do you see there are three ponies? One for each of us.

Second Stop

What a big bunny!
I wonder why it is sitting in a chick shaped nest?
I bet it's the Cadbury bunny!


That was fun.
Yeah, it was!
All the walking really made me hungry.
Pizza and a hot dog?
I told you I was hungry.
Looks like pepperoni.
I love pepperoni pizza.
What do you think you'll do after lunch?
I think I just want to hang out and read.
Anyone for ice cream?

Xyra Notes
Hi! The treats above are all miWorld (2 Dairy Queen packs and the pizza pack). The foods in that line seem to be the right scale for the minis, but the other accessories are not as good. I found these at one of our local Targets, but haven't seen any miWorld there lately.

Hope you are having a nice day. Visit again soon.

Mooving Into the Family

Garnet Arrives

Kaya, Melody, both

What's that over by the lilac?
I'm not sure. Let's check it out.
(walking closer)
Oh, my goodness! It's a calf.
She's pretty! I wonder where she came from?
Such a lovely color.
So red, like a garnet.
That's a perfect name.
I may call her Nettie.
Kirsten is going to LOVE her!

Best wishes. Come again soon.

National Dog Day 2015

Happy National Dog Day!

Have you hugged your dog today?
Melody and I took ours outside to play.
We were bowled over.
It was so much fun!

You know, if you don't have a real dog...
You can still celebrate with a plush puppy...
Or by drawing a puppy.
Just have fun today!

Best wishes! See you again soon!

Share Your Chair 2

Reader Photos Plus

Haley, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Melody, 2 or more

Reader Favorites

Flo sent us a photo of Marie-Grace in her favorite chair.
Doesn't she look comfy?
Yeah, lots of space to stretch out.
I love her outfit!
So, Flo told us Marie-Grace's favorite chair is dad's leather recliner. It's the best place for watching cartoons and other shows...but only when dad isn't home.

Nonna sent Anna on her favorite chair.
It's a fold out like our green chair.
Yes, but has a wood base.
Nonna says this fold out is from Battat and converts from chair to lounger to bed.
I don't blame Anna for liking that one.

A New Favorite

I have to show you are newest chair. 
They've seen it before.
Not really.
It was in the Shakespeare's Secret review.
I know, but now they'll get to really see it.
May I continue?
Sure, sure.
Thank you.

Okay. So we found this at a yard sale. An awesome overstuffed arm chair.
Super comfy. The pillow is attached so it doesn't get lost.
We need to get a foot stool and it will be perfect.
I hear Xyra has a few ideas on that!

Xyra's Note

We'd love to see more of your favorite chairs and invite you to send a photo with model and caption to  Personal information is never shared; just the photo and caption. :)

Best wishes!
