Tea party and other things

Hey ya'll!
So we went to the tea party, and I didn't get as much pictures as I wanted because Ivy, Tory and I got roped into chasing the little girls all around the house, and OUTSIDE, in 86 degree weather. uhg. But we got cake, so that was good. 😋 But here are the photos I did get:  

from left to right: Kaya, Lea, Julie, Kit, Carmen, and Ruthie. 

And here is a SUPER bad picture of them all hanging out while I set up the next batch of dolls.

These were the younger girl's dolls. Unfortunately, I don't know the names of the dolls on the ends, they belonged to some other little girls there, but Samantha and Maryellen are Tory's little sister's dolls, and of course there is Elizabeth. 😜
Camille didn't come, she didn't have anything to wear, and even if she did she still wouldn't come, because I made this for her last week and she won't take it off. 
Isn't it cute? I made it like the fin-fun mermaid tails, and even though I have to fix the waist band, I really like how it turned out!
When you take the tail off, its a little swim suit. I love the ruffles!
I put thick craft foam in the fins, leaving a space for her feet to fit in. 🙂🐚🐋

Also, in case you weren't checking back, (tut tut!) parts four and four-and-a-half of The Road to Salin were posted.

I'm also going camping tomorrow, so I won't be posting until I get back, around Sunday, or if I'm to tired then, Monday. Hopefully I'll get lots of good pictures! 😃
Well, toodles!

Do you like tea parties? Which type of chocolate cake is best? 
Do you enjoy camping? Do you like Camille's tail?
 Do you think those fin-fun tails are a 
bit overpriced? (read: a LOT)


  1. Awesome tea party! I love all chocolate cake...hope you had fun camping! :)

  2. Where did you get the patterns for the swimsuit and tail?!?!?

    1. I didn't use a pattern, mostly because I couldn't find one. XD I just snipped at a rectangle for the top, and added ruffles and straps, and for the bottom I traced the underwear she came in, and for the tail, I just winged it. It's dificult to explain, I also think I just got lucky, because when I wing it, it usually doesn't turn out very well. I hope that was at least a LITTLE helpful. :/
      Most crazily, ~Olive

    3. I honestly don't remember. XD
