Winning Ribbons in this 18 inch Doll Equestrian Outfit

Equestrian activities are everywhere in my neck of the woods! At many of the events, I see lots of girls with their 18″ dolls and am glad that My Doll’s Life® is now offering a very traditional equestrian costume DRRO-NV. For those of you who show, you will recognize the tailored navy blue blazer, the pleated white dicky collar, and jodhpurs. The embroidered horseshoe adds a sophisticated detail to this 18 inch doll riding outfit.  Also new to My Doll’s Life® are tall, lace up riding boots, SCRB-BK,  for your 18 inch doll to wear.  These black boots have pre-tied laces up the front and are angled so that your 18 inch doll can ride comfortably on her horse.  A full zipper up the back of these riding boots make these easy to get on your doll, over her jodhpurs. (Boots are sold separately) Together, you and your American Girl Doll will be sure to claim lots of winning ribbons.

Decorative Photo Frame Craft for your American Girl Doll

Autumn is officially here, pumpkins are decorating everyone’s porches, we are dressing in warmer clothes and I always think of soup as the meal of choice! I was recently sent a very easy craft project that uses dried beans…a favorite in many of my soup recipes! The project uses unfinished wooden photo frames, readily available at any craft store and a few other supplies that you might have in your craft drawer.  The dried beans add a variety of fall colors and textures to the frames and will make a beautiful frame for photos taken at a pumpkin patch, hay ride, or Halloween party! I have included a link for this project and hope that you enjoy it.  Send photos of your finished projects to I would love to see what you have made!
