An Award & Some Pictures

I really have no excuse for my absence besides the fact that I'm just a lazy bum who has been lacking photography inspiration. 
I'll do better this week, I swear. 

The fabulous Kathryn from over at Best Loved Dolls has come up with a new award, the Darling Doll Blog award. 
She was kind enough to award it to me. Thanks dear. ^_^
You can see the original post, and her lovely blog HERE





Here are the rules!



1. Nominate at least 5 doll blogs.
2. Copy and paste these rules to your award post and put this award on your sidebar/award page.
3. Ask 5 original, fun questions for your nominees.
4. Tell your nominees why you like their blog!

5. You are not obligated to do this award, but you can't take credit for it if you don't do an award post.






Here are the questions:

1. What do you look forward to most in 2015?
Hopefully earning enough money throughout the year to buy myself a nice Canon camera. 

2. If you only could watch two movies for the rest of your life, which movies would they be?
Two movies as in two solitary movies or would two movie series count? 
If for just two solitary movies, then The Desolation of Smaug & The Two Towers.
If two series, then LoTR & PoTC

3. What is your favorite book series?
Besides the obvious one, I really love Heirs of Chrior. 

4. If you could meet one blogger (not saying every blogger is amazing) who would it be?
Mmm... I'd really like to meet Evie. =)

5. If you had $100 that you could spend on one doll clothes store, which store would it be and what would you buy?
There's no way I could limit myself to just one store for doll clothes... I'd probably spread the money out across a few Etsy purchases.


I nominate: 

Kelsey- Empty Boxes is just my kind of crazy/fun, plus Kels is moi best friend. =)

Maddie- Dolls on My Mind is such a wonderful blog and M's photography is always gorgeous. 

Shelby-Grace- Oh My Dollies is the cutest blog around, and Shelby-Grace is just the darn sweetest thing. 

Olivia- AG Geeks is literally life, & Olivia is such a joy to talk to through comments. 

Ginny & June- Small Town American Girlz is such an enjoyable blog, and the two sisters are such sweeties. 

My Questions: 
1. Do you often wear slippers?
2. If you celebrate Christmas, do you have your tree up yet?
3. Favorite drink on a cold day?
4. Favorite foreign accent?
5. Who do you think is the kindest/sweetest commentor and/or follower?

Thanks again for the award Kathryn. =)


I've got a few pictures below...
They're kind of odd in a sense, because I took them at night and they're slightly spooky/Halloween-ish.
I'm not terribly happy with some of these but I think it was a good learning point for me to step out of what I normally do for pictures. 









I hope to have some Christmas portraits up soon and maybe a photo-story. =)

    Gahhh.
    They're amazing! Every time I try to take pictures at night, they always turn out blurry for some reason. =/ oh well.

    1. Thanks Abigail! That means a lot. =)
      A lot of mine turned out blurry, but that may have been because my hands were shaking from the cold. xD

  3. Oh, and those pictures of Charlie are absolutely perfect--They aren't spooky, they're hauntingly beautiful in my opinion (That sounded really weird :P) You are so creative and talented!

  6. W O W. These photos are stunning! I LOVE the lighting of all of them.
    They look slightly spooky, yet just GORGEOUS at the same time!
    Yikes, and tell Charlie she is a amazing poser! (Or just take the compliment for yourself cause you posed her) xD

  7. Oh Adi! You always have the most gorgeous photos :0)
    I like the first pic the best. Charlie just has that light in her eyes and it makes her look like she's up to something.
    I'm too freaked out to try night photography! I'll have to try it some time, maybe this weekend.
    Can't wait for Christmas pics!

  9. I agree with the spooky factor. The light makes the mood either sad or a monster will leap out of a dark alley and maul her.
    Hmm that was a little morbid. Maybe it's not quite like that.
    You could also argue that it's lonely.

    Ok I'm done analyzing your pictures now. 0_o

    I would love to see a photostory!

    1. Yeah, there's a bit of a spooky factor to them. And idk if Charlie would've encountered a monster, but it sure was freaky out at night xD
      I'll hopefully have one up by the weekend. =)

    1. Yeah, if you're unaware as to if they read your blog frequently you can just drop them a comment on their blog telling them that they've been nominated. =)

  11. I love the pictures! They are so clear! To tell you the truth, I would be scared to take pictures at night of my dolls... There are coyotes and bears and wolves where I live! And my cameras pictures at night stink!

    1. Thanks, dear! ^_^
      It was freaky being out at night, & I don't live in a place half as rural as your's. I doubt your night pictures would stink though. =)
