This year I spontaneously decided to throw myself into the ever popular take-one-picture-of-a-toy-every-day challenge! Which I have seen go by many names. I have decided to go with A Doll A Day, because dolls are what I will be taking pictures of. What counts as a doll, though, is entirely up to me. So far all the photos have been taken with my smartphone because I need it to be convenient in order for this to be something I do every day, but I don't have a particular rule about this. I hope to update the Dreamshelf every week or so with how the project is coming along! Starting NOW!!!


DAY 1: My newest doll, Jacques, putting away his Christmas decoration.

Narrator: It was Christmas Eve on the temporary branch Dreamshelf...
ME: Hey gang, I hope you've settled in nicely with the two dozen chairs I got you because I got you a new present!
Diego: Let me guess... a chair?!?

I didn't like her that much from pictures, but when I saw her in real life I fell in love.

I spent a while on a photoshoot only to discover that the white balance was all wrong!!! It's happened before and I've been all "screw it," but not this time. From now on, I will frigging stop being lazy and go back and retake photos I mess up! GOSH!!!

In the meantime, here's a quick spontaneous shot.

So there's this set of tiny G4-style Ponies sold in mystery bags, right? Apparently someone figured out a way to know which one you're buying. I bought a bunch BEFORE discovering this, so I ended up with the circled ones above, as well as some less desirable ones...

I'd like to introduce you to MY CHILDHOOD!!!



MORE LATER!?!? I'm a bit too tired to write full entries at the moment, but I wanted to at least make some kind of post on the day I received Huey here since he's been on my want list for years.

Three hours and two blistery fingers later, I finally got Baby Fizzy rehaired!

No. I do remember struggling to find the ONE special ONE toy to be my life companion, but in the end, I was just too gosh darned fickle to decide. I had way too many toys, and my favorite changed like every week.


IF I had been less fickle, it COULD have been Baby Moondancer, the only childhood toy I never had the heart to put away in the attic. By the way, this is a good condition replacement I bought on ebay recently, since my actual childhood Baby Moondancer was spotted and yellow and frizzy and is currently in the process of being turned into Baby Fizzy. So perhaps I should have posted a picture of her instead, but I did that in an earlier entry, and her hair hasn't arrived yet anyway.

TOO BAD!!! I had a major score at the local toy store yesterday!! They had all the basics, big Rarity and Applejack, talking Celestia, Rarity's carriage and Twilight's balloon.

So I asked a good friend in the US to pick up a random mystery pony for me since I like all the characters anyway. The package arrived today and I was pleasantly surprised to discover Twilight Sparkle inside!

GUYS I am having so much fun playing with pony hair! I use the boiling water method to keep the styles I want in place, and for Fluttershy here, her own legs as hair curlers.

So yesterday was the most perfect birthday since... last year's!! First of all, my brand new doll arrived JUST IN TIME, I guess that makes his birthday the same as mine!

As I said earlier, the My Little Pony special "The End of Flutter Valley" was my favorite thing in the world for quite a while during my childhood. Because of this I always wanted a flutter pony of my own, but never managed to get one because I was too young, possibly not even born, when they were sold in stores. I remember taping clear plastic bag cut-outs to my earth ponies at some point to make my own.

I was sooo happy when I found Baby Candy in the attic. She wasn't in the best condition, but she still had her original hair clip accessory!
