Here we see the Breyer Rider called "Veterinarian Laura" riding "Snowball" in a winter scene. She holds a lead rope and her horse wears a tan bridle with a tan saddle. The overlay says, "DIY saddle and bridle" and reminds us that this image comes from Chelly Wood dot com (using the watermark image for that website).

Please scroll down to the bullets for links to the tutorial videos. Years ago, when my oldest daughter was in middle school, she loved Breyer model horses.

Doll Photography Tip #9: Set up a Studio for Photographing Your Dolls #DollCollector #CraftRoom

Indoor photography can be a real hassle when you have to set up the kitchen table for a photo shoot right after breakfast, hurry though your photos, and then take the kitchen-table-studio apart again in time for serving lunch or dinner.

They were in junior high and high school, and they … Continue reading Doll Photography Tip #9: Set up a Studio for Photographing Your Dolls #DollCollector #CraftRoom

Here we see a Chelsea male doll / boy doll standing next to a Polly Pocket ice cream truck. The Chelsea and Friends boy doll is clearly too tall for the ice cream truck. Near the ice cream truck door is a Kelly doll and a knockoff Kelly doll. It's clear that although they're about the right size, these dolls were also not made to fit in the ice cream truck.

This tiny plastic dog is the smallest of the bunch. He looks like a cocker spaniel jumping into his "let's play" pose with his hind quarters high in the air, tail wagging, and his front paws splayed out in front of him.

The image shows a Made-to-Move Barbie with blond hair and tan skin bent over and peering into a full-to-overflowing wheelbarrow full of harvested vegetables, flowers, and leaves. Behind Barbie is a pair of hay bales stacked on top of each other. MTM barbie wears a handmade dress and apron. The dress is made of sunflower-designed cotton Fabric and its wide skirt (which comes down to just below Barbie's knees) is trimmed in yellow rickrack. On the grass in the foreground, there are a smattering of orange and gold fall leaves. Behind Barbie is a garden scene with a bridge that crosses a still lake. Some of the foliage around the lake is turning yellow, to indicate that autumn is at hand.
