If you think living with a few women is difficult try living with 1,796 dolls. It's downright hazardous. The dolls think they're human and make dollie demands. One demand was their own blog for stories about life in "The Dollie Storage Room" where they live. So, to keep the peace in my house I created this blog for my dolls and for all the "grown-up girls" out there. It will be filled with everything and anything concerning the dollies. The dollies are in charge so it should be interesting!

The Dollie Storage Room Participants So Far



The "dollies" have so many stories to tell and so many fun things for you to do. They thought it might be easier for you to follow along with their adventures if you knew who they were and what they looked like. According to the dollies; "It's always better to put a face with a name!"

If you'd like to see pictures of the dollies who have been involved in some of the stories so far and read the stories each of the "dollies" is involved in just CLICK HERE for our "Dollie Storage Room Participants Page."

Did You See Our Cousins New Alpaca Pictures?



My sister and her husband, who are the owners of Rock Garden Alpacas, had been planning on participating in their first National Alpaca Farm Days Weekend Event for a year and that weekend was finally here.

My sister had also decided that this would also be the official opening of their Rock Garden Alpacas Farm Store. This meant products had to be made and the store had to be set up. Needless to say even with a year to plan all this the closer it got to the day the more harried everyone became.

The event was meant to showcase alpaca farms, teach the public about the alpacas and to, hopefully, sell some products. So, of course, with a two-day event the weather was important. Luckily for us the weather forecast for that weekend was beautiful sunny days.

What could be better than spending a beautiful Fall day at the farm, sitting on the hill and taking in my sister's incredible view, learning about the animals and their fiber, and doing a little shopping. Sounds like a perfect day to me.

So, of course, I went to help.  Truth be told I just love the alpacas and taking pictures of them.  And, I knew the "dollies" would love seeing new pictures of their alpaca cousins.  Here's some of the pictures I took:


The girls were getting ready.


Petunia was in her hay pile.


Roxy and Zinnia were getting ready.  There would be visitors today so they needed to look their best.


This meant a little rolling in the dust to make themselves beautiful for their guests.


After that it was time to feed their growling stomachs.


A little bit of rest was in store before the guests arrived.


And, of course a little fun in the hay pile was in order.  The girls were definitely ready.


Masquerade was still pinning for the girls but at least he wasn't moaning.,


Cosmo and Berberis were getting ready. Cosmo knew he had to be at his very best. He's the official farm greeter after all.


And, Boots just stood as regal as ever.  Perfect posture, perfect disposition - everything you'd expect from a senior citizen.


Everything was set. Everyone was ready.  The fog had burned off and it was going to be a wonderful day.


And, that it was. Everyone who came loved the view, loved the alpacas, and loved the farm store. Some just sat on the hill to take in the beautiful view while others tried and tried to get the female alpacas to come over to the fence to no avail. Cosmo, on the other hand, absolutely loved all the attention and played his part to a tee.

At the end of the day everyone was ready for a nap. No time for that. There was still another day to go and everything had to be ready again. No rest for the wicked.

You're All Invited To The Dollie's Spooky Halloween Party


Click to play this Smilebox slideshow
Create epic Halloween party invitations with Smilebox.

There's been a lot of chatter coming from The Dollie Storage Room lately.

Dolls have been coming and going at all times of the day and night. 

There's been a lot of banging and moving of furniture. And, of course there's been a lot of laughter and gaiety for days on end now.

We weren't concerned until we heard the screaming. That we weren't too sure of, but the dollies assured us that everything was fine.

We're pretty sure what's going on.

It's October and that means the "dollies" favorite holiday will be here soon - HALLOWEEN.

And, for the dollies that means "PARTY TIME!"

They do love to party. And, at Halloween party they do.

That is - until the house starts shaking.

Then, hubby, puts his foot down. Or lets say he tries to put his foot down. When the "dollies" get going they don't listen to anyone. Well, maybe someone - ME!!!!

When they get out of hand and get a little too exuberant I have to gently remind them that I may be old, but since I put them together I can still take them apart. For them that's tantamount to a death sentence. So, they pay attention and calm down just a bit. At least the house stops shaking.

So, get ready.  It's IT'S SPOOKY TIME

You're All invited! So, come on - let's party!
