  • Prompt 2: I miss fall colors in Florida, make me jealous, with gorgeous fall colors  in nature, clothes or ambiance.


Week 2 (October Cool:

  • Prompt 3: Best time to bake is Fall!  What is your doll's favorite baked good?

Both pretty photos!

Florida looks similar to Hawaii--very green even in the Fall.

Looks like Thankful Peabody has some apple pie...very appropriate for Autumn.

Yes! We never get a fall 😆 I see leaves turning but that can happen any time of the year so I never know what season it is.

Thanks. When I saw the prompts I knew Thankful was the perfect doll for at least one of the photos, and I had to use the apple pie set!

My Burning Bush right off my deck makes this an easy one to do. Dal Clair and Campbell-pang.  Clair's bonnet is in one of my boxes of stock and I was too lazy to go look for it.

Hmm, I guess this is prompt 5. Giving to others is a part of self care. Poppies support the Veterans of Foreign Wars (of which my father was one).

#3 Baking
New 2nd-favourite dessert around here is haupia pie!!  Where has this been all my life.  Ground-cherry always wins, and my plants have crapped out so there won't be a harvest of those this year, but, this pie is 'onolicious'.  Hawaiian girl Aloalo shows her Dal sisters the strawberry version.

#7 Pumpkin
Well, this is kinda the baking prompt part II, but, it's pumpkin pie!  Almost every part of the pumpkin is useable and I don't like to see them wasted.  I'm still using up the tons of puree I froze last year.  Better hustle.

Me, too! I'd never heard of it. But I see there are recipes for chocolate versions, so that might tempt me to try making one someday. And of course, the tinies are looking adorable as always.

I am so sorry I missed so many entries. I receive emails sometimes and not all the time about each post. I love the red fall colors you have cornflower blue ! She is contrasting the rich color and looking so classically beautiful.
I love nearly all pies so I am curious about haupie pie as well. I remember you never waste a good pumpkin. Glad the girls are helping out 😆
I agree helping others is a type of self care. Poppies is supporting an important cause.

I can’t believe how fast this month is going. I even selected the dolls and dressed them and planned the scenes but still couldn’t get all of them done 😆

Took these last weekend and then never got around to posting them... meant to tackle the rest of the themes today, and then my camera conked out... it's been one of those days, er, weeks, er months...

Prompt 2-- Fall colors
(We're focusing on the colors and completely ignoring the disappearance of Beatrice's nose...)

October-2020 challenges are here! 76138495_9219993cd163a9a91af1752bfd802407_standard

Prompt 3-- Baking
To me, oatmeal raisin cookies (or anything cinamonny) just says "fall"!

Prompt 6-- A Walk Outside
OK, it may have been a walk around the backyard, but it was perfect sweater weather...

October-2020 challenges are here! 76138484_b1a55b0b779c5ae211580f1871a6c145_standard

Prompt 7-- Pumpkin
This was Miranda's first time outside, as well as her first time out of her stock dress. Doesn't she look thrilled? (Dress by Cornflower Blue)

Prompt 8-- Spooky Halloween
A little ghost girl in a graveyard is spooky, right?

Wow, dargosmydaddy gets busy! Great job! I love the pumpkin photo - her eyes are amazing, and she looks amazing.

(Don't know if you ever edit your photos, but darkening a photo a bit can make a doll's nose reappear. Some of the Dals have this issue regularly.)
