An Adventurer At Heart


I saw this on  poster this weekend at a vintage market.  I believe they took liberties and it should have said tea instead of coffee...but I like coffee and this suits me to a tee!

I have spent my life loving bears and other stuffed animals.  I have devoted almost 40 years of my life to their creation.  But when I was little I didn't really have much interest in dolls.  I had a couple, but only one I really liked.  Her name was Ruthie.  Over the years dolls still never held much appeal.  But then a couple years ago I began seeing Blythe dolls showing up in in photos of bears, like Goldilocks looking for porridge with their chibi style heads and large luminous eyes.

At first I wasn't sure how I felt about them.  But after a while I was smitten.  I bought my first doll and it was all down hill from there.  I have bought many friends, clothes and of course made pets for these dolls.

Through the mutual love and adoration of these dolls I have made new friends.  If you aren't familiar with Blythe dolls and the artists who customize them, check them out...they are true works of heart!

Berbere Papillon



Renowned ornithologist Dr. Nigel Sylligus...world famous for discovering the Puce Close-Throated Warbler has spent the past few years in Papua New Guinea trying to catalogue new species of birds. Imagine his surprise when he discovered a new species of flying Bobber instead! He instantly named the rare creature the Berbere Papillon Bobber after his favorite Ethiopian spice. Berbere can be adopted on my website at Adorable Madness.
