It’s raining today where I am, which brought to mind this particular song that I was quite obsessed with in my childhood.
Yes. It is a song from the cartoon Sailor Moon, which I caught every day before school and/or after school. I was the kind of kid who would get my music from cartoons and movies (on VHS), rather than the radio. Some other hits of my childhood were:
- I Saw Your Face and Wow from Hey Arnold!
- I Need Mo Allowence from Doug
- The Pepper Ann Theme Song
- The manically happy song where Sister Maria teaches the Von Trapp kids how to sing
- All the songs from Calamity Jane (this one is called “I Can Do Without You”)
I guess I’m feeling a little (a lot) nostalgic. I think redressing my dolls also put me in that sort of mood. I’m single-minded when it comes to picking outfits for my girls, and it usually takes me a little over an hour to dress all five of them. When an outfit comes out just right, there’s that sense of satisfaction that I’ve made blythe considerably cuter and also maybe learned better how to style a particular girl.
Anyway, I was feeling a bit uninspired last night as I sorted through my boxes of doll clothes. Out of my five girls, I was happiest with how Finley and Rory were redressed.
Finley is wearing Zinochika stock shoes, white tights, a black MINIJIJO tutu, a striped t-shirt, and a crochet beret.Rory is wearing Licca shoes, very distressed jeans from MINIJIJO, and Lizzie Hearts sweater by Lambellina. Rory looks kind of like my spirit animal 😄 – she’s looking exactly how I want to look with her pink hair, winged liner, and stylin’ ensemble.
Here’s to a weekend that feels long! May Monday come veryyyyyy slowly (please).
