Snowed in...

I have not posted much, as since Thursday evening here in Virginia it has been snowing and we have been housebound. Since we live in a rural area, we were projected to get alot of snow until 7am this morning, on Sunday. It was bright and sunny this morning, thank goodness, and had stopped snowing last night sometime in the early hours of the morning. Winds were up to 40 miles an hour. 

Forgive the pic, I took it with my new phone through my front door. I couldn't open my front door as the snow had come up too high! Ordinarily you can see the road in front of those trees, and a field, but all you can see is white out, that white stuff is a road, a ditch, and I assure you a huge field. somewhere across that road is our mailbox. 
Yesterday and Friday we weren't going anywhere- and today someone got stuck in our ditch in front of our house. We had not dug out our driveway or cars or trucks, so someone else had to help them. My husband and I were not going to risk it, the road was just too dangerous to go out on. 

So today I caught up on some dolly tag game pictures for Flicker. 
One was Dolls in lingerie an the other was Dolls in Black. 

I had not taken any pictures of my City Shopper Steffie Barbie in a long, long time. I made these black lace panties with the pink bows on them and thought I would take a pic of her as if she were getting ready to go out with her dress laid out, stockings, etc. I love her, and have always thought she was cute for a Model Muse. I ordinarily hate the body type but they are great for one of a kind dolls if you need a doll to display your gowns on. 

I used Dial V for Victoire for Dolls in Black. I got her at GLOSS convention in 2014 and she is now on sale, she is one of the more lovelier ones. Her outfit is wonderful. I have her skirt on another Victoire that is a saleslady in LaBelle's. This Victoire has the look of a cat burglar to me from the time I saw her outfit, hence the gun. I need to get her a Glock or a nine mil. or a James Bond type of gun. She really looks like she needs to be stealing diamonds or fine art. That is one of the dioramas on my list- it would be neat to have her doing that. 

Looks like I might be snowed in some more, even though it melted a little bit but maybe I might get some more pics. I don't do well without sunlight and today was the first day the sun came back out. I sooooooo....hate snow!

Stay safe! Snow is pretty but can be extremely annoying. And yes, that Victoire is nice and cat burglar-ish.

Ooh, yes, you guys got a ton of snow it looks like! The bizarre thing is that we didn't get one single flake up here in upstate NY. This has been the strangest winter and I am certainly not complaining one bit! I don't mind snow as long as I don't have anywhere to drive. I am a nervous wreck when it comes to snow and driving. It's so scary to me and I have used this argument many times to try to convince my husband to move south. Thankfully I work from home now and this major stresser has been eliminated. :) The photos of the dolls are beautiful. I love that Victoire and the Steffi is very pretty as well!

Tm, It is so annoying! Loads of accidents down here. People are snowed in and can't get out.
Farrah it is bad down here. The funny thing is secondary roads in the city are snowed in and are not yet plowed and out here in our rural area, which usually doesn't get cleared out our roads are plowed! and finally clear. We spend most of yesterday and got half the driveway clear which was hard. Sunday someone got stuck in the ditch in front of our house. I too, hate driving in snow and this really has screwed up my schedule.

I think the City Shopper Steffi was one of the prettiest Barbie Basics the look dolls they made, I used my brunette city shopper for my Steampunk Butterfly. Will have to go shopping on ebay for another one of those.

Hello Lisa! Too bad the weather is so bad there. Sometimes I wish winter here was colder, but not until the point of being unable to leave the house. I really like the pictures, specially the one with Steffi.

See you soon!
