Pirates on the windowsill

There’s always that moment in a Rosie adventure where I try and figure out who going to whisk her away on her dream adventure.

For her doll adventure, I always knew that it would be my “big” dolls (China girl, Blythe, and doll Rosie)

and, for her fairy adventure, I already had a fairy picked out long before I photographed the scene where the fairies haul her away.

The bird adventure was a little harder. I knew that I’d use my felted falcon somewhere in the adventure, but it wasn’t until I saw him in the shot that I knew he was the right one to whisk her away.

Yesterday, I really struggled with the pirates.

I started with my main pirate – puss-in-boots type figure I picked up from Goodwill. But . . . he doesn’t bend, and looks oddly placed standing in the window.

Then I used my Monkey Queen, or whatever she is, but she’s all floppy and looked odd sprawled across the bed.

Finally, I took a few shots with some of my Lego pirates.

So far, the Legos are winning the battle, but we’ll have to wait until Friday to see who eventually carts Rosie away to her pirate adventure.



In my (almost) 60th year on earth I decided to set my fashion dolls free of their clothes and accessories and send them on adventures. This is your window onto my own adventure into a land of crafts where I have zero skills, talent or mentors. Wish me (and my dolls) luck!
