With Polar Vortex snowstorms raging in North America, I decided that my dolls needed some luxurious warm clothes, so I had some made for them. These are one of a kind, faux fir ensembles of matching hats and coats, made in the Russian tradition of winter wear. They fit both porcelain and resin dolls, although it’s a roomier fit on resin dolls and a tighter fit on porcelain.

My Darlings! Happy New Year!

I’m back from my vacation and I have something personal to share with you today – a commemorative short film of the 9th annual, week-long New Year’s Extravaganza with a couple dozen of my closest friends. It’s a tradition of ours to rent a house some place remote, cold and snowy, preferably with a frozen lake in the back yard and riding slopes near by, and spend the last week of each year together. We skate, play pond hockey, ride and ski, play board games, dance, hold wine and scotch tastings, cook big meals and watch movies together while it’s snowing outside. Also polar bear swim. Life doesn’t get better than this. It’s pure Canadiana!

Big thanks to the group cinematographers, our own Benjamin Taft, Lewis Bennet and Adam Bognar, for capturing these precious moments of happiness which we can revisit until it’s time for us to celebrate the passing of yet another year together. I can’t wait. Love you guys!

Join me briefly for 8 minutes of my life beyond dolls. Click on the Vimeo icon in the corner to view it on viemo.com in HD quality. There are two parts: Ice hockey and Polar bear swimming. Enjoy my Canadiana!
