Picnic with a stranger

DSCN3329

Hello, hello, hello… it’s Amber, star of the blog. (And yes, I am wearing Kit’s skirt over my shirt. It acts like a poncho and it’s so cool. I got the idea from Youtube.) Firstly, if you’ve been noticing some blog posts appear and then disappear, Kit changes her mind quite a lot. So please ignore Kit’s outbursts :D. But enough about Kit and time to talk about me.

Recently, when the weather was not too hot and quite comfortable, I decided to take a picnic. Some of this idea comes from Doll Diaries’ hobo picnic (http://dolldiaries.com/camp-doll-diaries-take-a-hobo-picnic/) , except I’m pretty sure hoboes didn’t eat frosted Cheerios and crackers (a weird afternoon snack).

Off I went hiking to find a good place to eat my picnic. BTW, see that the picnic blanket has cows on it? ūüėÄ

Here will do! I sat down to eat and realized that the crackers had dropped! I was too lazy, um, comfortable, to get them, though, so I just ate frosted Cheerios. At times, nothing can beat them!

All of a sudden I heard quiet, muffled footsteps. I was confused. Emma and Kit were out, and my mom was inside. Was it a rat? (I hate rats!!)

DSCN3319

But no, it wasn’t. It was a doll, I think, but I didn’t recognize those shoes…

All of a sudden her full body came into view. I couldn’t see very well with the light, but I already saw that she was pretty. Her dress was cute too, but it looked old. Her headband was doll-lightful, her shoes too – not my style, though, and it was getting too hot for socks.

Extremely pretty, I thought as she inched along the side of the flowers to join me. And her hair? She’s a redhead! That is just SO cool. Her hair was very silky and smooth. It was such a great length. Then she turned her eyes towards me, and I nearly fell backwards. Her eyes were so piercing it was a bit scary! But they were pretty too, especially their color.

“Hello,” she said in a tiny voice with a British accent. “May I sit with you, please?”

DSCN3323

“Hi!” I exclaimed as she came next to me. Then, “do I know you?” I asked politely.

“I’m Emily, Emily Bennett,” she told me simply, smoothing over her dress. “I’m from England and I don’t know where I am.”

I learned that Emily Bennett had come from the 1940s, from England to America, and somehow had lost herself in time. It was confusing, but then again, Kit had done the same. I also learned that Emily was quite quiet but sharp. She was the sort of girl that everyone gushed over her and made her the center of attention. She was trying to impress me, I was sure of it. I think she wanted to hit it off with me. She wouldn’t talk about the war a lot, and when she did, it gave me the impression that she was telling me that she knew more than I did about it. Which was true, but a bit rude.

I told her that she could share my picnic with me, and I said I was sorry that I didn’t have the crackers with me.

“That’s alright,” she replied. “I found some on my way over.”

DSCN3324

And there were my crackers in her hand!

“Those are mine!” I¬†cried¬†and when Emily handed them to me, I suddenly realized, she had followed me!

DSCN3325

We sat and talked for a bit. She was getting on my nerves a bit, with that flawless English accent and perfect manners to match. She was looking at me a lot too, and informed me I looked like “Molly”. Like who? Who’s Molly?

DSCN3331

And then Miss Prissy wanted a tour of where I was staying. I reluctantly gave her one. She seemed quite impressed, nodding but not saying a lot, and she smiled when she saw the garden and spurted out these gardening tips and asked me if I did them. I said no and she told me it was alright, but she gave me a sort of weird look.

DSCN3336

So far, I wasn’t liking Emily a whole lot. She’s not very friendly and she seems… I dunno… cold, a lot of the time. I wonder why I haven’t seen her around. If she’s local, I hope she won’t be the sort that always wants to do something with me. I’ve got Kit and Emma for that, thank you.

DSCN3337

Before long I had had enough of Miss Bennett and I tried to tell her that I needed to go.

“Jolly good,” she answered. “I was just wondering if you could help me with something.” She showed me a piece of paper. “I’m looking for this address.”

I saw the address. My eyes widened.

“With someone named Amber living there?” Emily prompted, and I remembered I hadn’t told Emily my name.

“Actually – ” It would be so easy to tell Emily that they lived over in North Dakota or something, but she looked at me and held my gaze with those amazing eyes. I figured she must be pretty depressed with the war and all, so I said, “I’m Amber, and this is the address you’re looking for.”

“Jolly good!” she repeated, but this time more stunned.

“Why?” I wondered. “Why do you want to know?”

DSCN3327

And her blue eyes met mine, and I knew what she was going to say.

“Because,” she began, and I inwardly groaned. “I’m going to be residing here. I’m the new doll.”

Out of all the ways to ruin a picnic, I think this was number 1.

Dolls Just Wanna Have Fun

Hiya! It’s Amber, your favorite doll! I’ve been trying to have some fun over here, as best as I can considering the circumstances… but before I tell you, I have an announcement.¬†Kit and Emma will be taking a summer break, so I’ll be the only one posting on here for now. Kit says NO WAY¬†is she going to post when she could sit in the sun or play some baseball now that school’s out. Plus, she already has a lot on her due to being the camp leader. Emma didn’t really say anything because her nose was still in her book and didn’t look like it would be coming out of there!

Anyways, I had myself some free time, and decided to have some fun! Great, right?

DSCN3063

Not really. Apparently, Human was looking for some “fun” too. Here’s a lovely bird’s eye photo in which you can see her stalking me. My idea of a perfect afternoon. Plus, she wears socks with sandals.

DSCN3042

I started watching TV for a bit, but even dolls can’t take hours and hours! Human was very generous and allowed me to watch all the fashion shows, and even went out of the room for a little bit. Good girl.

DSCN3058

By then, I was getting¬†a little hungry, so I decided to raid the cupboard. But what does Human say but, “DON’T TOUCH THE TREATS!”

DSCN3007

What’s wrong, Human? Why so angry? It’s a free country, right? Okay, I’ll clean it up…

DSCN3076

NOT. GOING. TO. LOOK. AT. YOU. HUMAN.

DSCN3028

Oh look, there you are again. Why are you smiling, huh? Is it because you’re so better than me? Huh. I’d like you to prove it. As you can see, I’m playing “Mary Has A Little Lamb” perfectly… *plunk* whoops.

DSCN3085

Oh, hi, statue. I’m Amber. How are you doing? Hey… you’ve got a pretty nice hat… can I try it on? (sigh) Probably not.

DSCN3090

Spin, human, spin!! YAAAAAAYYYYYY… or not.

DSCN3092

Must…rethink…regroup…reorganize…and reenergize.

Happy Fourth of July!

Hi, and happy fourth of July! Have a wonderful day barbecuing, watching fireworks, hanging up US flags, and most importantly, having fun! Today, your favorite adventurous girls (maybe Emma, however, isn’t very adventurous…) decided to celebrate by taking a special trip…

DSCN2893

“AGH!! Amber, I’m scared!”

“Don’t be! It’s just a boat!”

“What if it tips over? What if we fall in the water? What if we DROWN…”

“We WON’T drown, don’t worry. Now, why don’t you think up a little story about what we’re doing.”

“Al…right. Courageous explorers Emma and Amber today board the famous American ship, “Stars ‘n’ Stripes”, to discover a new island. Right now all they can see is open sea, flat and peaceful.”

“And they start to grill their 4th of July dinner.”

“Yes. They remark to each other the stillness of the water – but suddenly they see something. A black fin, circling and circling around their ship… could it be… AGH!! AMBER I’M SCARED!”

“Stop worrying, I don’t think sharks try to attack humans. They just mistake them for turtles or something.”

“BUT OUR BOAT’S GREEN!! AGH!!!”

“Couldn’t you just – ”

“AMBER GET ME OFF THIS SHIP!!”

“OK, OK… here ya go. There. Feel much better now? I’m glad. You wanna know a secret that I can’t believe you didn’t notice? There’s no water.”

After that, the adventurous girls decided to stay in their camp cabin where they belonged!

This is one of my ultime – favorites! I love the colored jeans and the modern, cute hoodie! The shoes, though, are nothing special. This is item 1 on my wishlist!

kit1

This is just such the perfect outfit for painting. I LOVE the shirt, it’s just too cute for words! The blue is so pretty! The jeans are cute, but the flats don’t seem to fit with the rest of the outfit.¬†

emma1

This is my favorite of the new releases. The cardigan looks very warm and the skirt is pretty. It looks like something I would wear.

This outfit is very tidy, simple but sweet. It does look like something I would wear to school! I like the style of the shirt.

kit2

YES! It’s my turn, finally. This star hoodie is just SO cool and it looks comfortable, too! Red is one of my favorite colors!

This is really sweet. (Side note: this is my mom’s favorite outfit too). I love the blues and the shoes (hey, I’m a poet!).

Nice releases, AG! Then, there’s the problem of the price… I know, but they’re still…
