I have to say that I enjoyed all of your vacation shots, looking at all of the sites and views from the plane and around land. Such breath-taking views!

Your girls look so cute, and the new wig is definitely a nice upgrade! And, just love the tiny furniture; it's so cute!

Thank you everybody! Sunsette appreciates the nice comments wink
It might still be a little too long; will see about a trim maybe. Also kinda too much 'bangs' and in her face, but I cut them too short last time, so will see how that works out too before trying to cut them.

Heh. Thanks. I googled... got people-hair videos so just kinda improvised on what they said. I have never actually cut human hair other than my bangs! The little salon 'wave' in her bangs is package-hair-effect from shipping! LOL

I'm glad you liked the pix. I'm still sorting my own; Sunsette got first dibs LOL The furniture was my grandparents' ... made from little sardine cans or the like. Hopefully they'd be amused that the dolls are using it.

The new wig makes her look even more fantastic (as I'm sure she knows smile ).

And the little pieces of furniture are made out of sardine cans? That's amazing.

Sunsette looks so glamorous now with the new wig! It's surprising, that even though it's the same color, it makes such a difference.

"Hi Everyone!
"Thank you for the nice comments.  It was actually pretty hard to find Just The Right Colour Wig.  I feel really glamorous now!  And yep, the seats of the little chairs are some kind of can top or bottom.
"Our neighbour brought us a bouquet of her not-yet-ex'pired birthday flowers because she was going away.  Lots of the crew have had their pictures taken this week.  Here are mine!"

Oh, Sunsette, you look so lovely! The colour match there is just amazing.

Awww!

I see the word "glamorous" at least a couple of times here, and that is definitely the proper descriptor for the new hairstyle!

The lovely red colors, in both the flowers and in Sunsette's hair, are striking and vibrant in these photos.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Thank you very much, everybody!
Alas, we had to compost the roses yesterday; they were done... but they were the perfect colour, weren't they!

"OK, Mum says the title is misleading because it makes it sound like we actually went sailing, and we didn't really (ferries don't count).  BUT, we WERE on a boat.... so there.
"Mum took us to see the nao Santa Maria, a replica of Columbus's ship from 1492.  In a roundabout way, sailing ships led Mum to dolls, and I was the first to start the crew here, so I was really excited to finally see a real one.  Of course I took my lil sis."

"Yep, it steers with a joystick.  ...!!  This is a whipstaff, which they used before ships had wheels.  You basically shove the tiller back and forth with it.  Mum said, 'ugh'!"

"Here it is again, looking toward the main and foremasts.  The crew speak some English, and some better than others.  Mum had a good chat with one guy, but the second one really stalled when she started asking how the lines differed from those on an 18th-century square sail..."

"We had a great time.  The sound of water lapping against the hull, the feel of a coil of line, and the smell, which Mum said was oh so familiar.  But, although the lady she talked to longest encouraged her to volunteer, she's not too sure about this one.  It's pretty primitive... Mum said it looks like it rolls like a *#%^!! too, and the crew pretty much confirmed that.  Look how high it is."
