To celebrate BlytheLife.com’s 5th birthday, I announced on July 1st that any non-spam comments made on BlytheLife.com would count as an entry. At the time, I knew that I wanted to do a giveaway but I wasn’t sure what of at the moment. But now here it is:
There are three that open in the front, three that open in the back. And I actually have one more on the needles (whoops!), so that’ll be an extra little surprise for the winner! And the winner will get to choose what colour beads I use for the owl’s eyes in the sweater on the right hand side on the bottom row.
There was an amazing 76 comments/entries this month! I hope that everyone continues to leave comments to add to the conversation. It’s been a great birthday month for BlytheLife.
The lucky winner is…
Congratulations Olive! Please check your email for a message from me

Dear Santa Claus,
I have been an awfully good Blythe this year, I hope you have been paying attention to keep me on the Nice list! As such, I would very much love an advance on my Christmas present this year. I know that August seems a little bit early, but you have to remember that I live in a family of fifteen now and it’s awfully difficult to get any sort of attention from Michelle these days.
If you will recall, Michelle left me at home in 2011 when she went to Portland for BlytheCon with Belarus. She also left me at home in 2014 when she went to BlytheCon in Seattle and took that freak Eden and one of the old ones with her. As her first Blythe, I’ve been feeling a little bit neglected recently. In a family of fifteen where I need to share my shoes, it’s unfortunate that the one who inspired all of this has been left to collect dust on a shelf. No love for Sophie. None. I’ve been tempted to call for Blythe Protective Services, but Michelle insists that this is not a real thing. However, since I mentioned calling them she has been keeping a closer eye on my internet time so I suspect that she is lying…
Anyways, back to what I wanted to talk to you about! I’m hoping to go to BlytheCon Vancouver, third time’s the charm, right? Failing that, if you could please make sure that Michelle buys me some nice things? There are some clothes that I’d love to get my hands on by some fancy dress makers, and I wouldn’t mind some new tights and socks. However, no way should you send me a new sister via BlytheCon Vancouver. I know there will be people selling Blythes there but that is no good to me. No good at all! Some new dresses, maybe a tiara.
Failing this, please get Rudolph to bring me an ice floe – I’d like to push Eden and Primrose off onto it and wave goodbye to them from land.
Sophie is a mostly stock Cappuccino Chat that came to live with me in June 2009. She loves shoes, new clothes, playing with her hair, fashion, magazines full of fluff and shopping. She aspires to be a model and would like to model for some of the ‘great’ dolly fashion houses one day.

I’ve been knitting away this month to put together a neat little prize package for BlytheLife.com’s 5th Birthday Giveaway! While this isn’t everything (there will be a few additional items that I’m still brainstorming about), and not everything is finished yet (snaps!), it’s a quick little snapshot of what one lucky winner will be getting!
As mentioned, every non-spam comment this month, until end of day July 30th, will count as an entry towards the giveaway, and then I’ll see who wins and announce on Friday, July 31st. Happy commenting!

Filed under: Question of the Week
I was recently asked this question and it made me think a bit. There are so many dolls that I have considered getting, and many of them are worth the time to save up for. Usually my stock answer is one of the dolls I’ve been wishing after for a while (Aztec Arrival or Mondrian), but then I really thought about it. If money were truly not an obstacle, I’d probably have a Parco.
For those who are new to the Blythe hobby, or don’t pay attention to older releases, Parco was the first Blythe produced by Takara. She was the first Blythe on a Licca body and she was a pretty little thing. She doesn’t come up for sale often, and is notoriously difficult to find with stock. And truth be told, if I had the funds I’d get her. Parco is like a piece of Blythe history. The popularity of Parco helped lead Blythe to what she is today, and I really like that. Plus, she’s rather fabulous.
If money wasn’t an obstacle, which stock Blythe would you get?
