Showers of Valentines for You

April showers bring May flowers ... but what does a shower of Love bring in February? Only fans of Valentine's Day know for sure. Best wishes from the Cabin for all the romantics at heart this special holiday!

It's Marley's Ghost!

Up next on the drawing board? A new depiction of A Christmas Carol, which has long needed a variation from our original (and somewhat spooky) designs.

These new dolls will be diminutive pocket prims, similar to the Wonderland set designed last year, with a slightly cuter appeal than the spooky image of our original infamous Jacob Marley and Co. Visit the slide show below for photos of the original Marley who inspired our sculpted "A Christmas Carol" series a few short years ago.

A Few of our Favorite Things: Peck-Gandre's Paper Dolls

These I absolutely LOVE with a capital everything, and collect on any occasion I can. Both Peck-Gandre and Peck-Aubry's editions are worth seeking out and getting more expensive as they pass into the realms of collector's items.

The elegant Snow White and Cinderella are among my favorites, but I have yet to find one that isn't colorful, delicate, classical, and imaginative in its depiction of traditional fairy tales. Classic children's novels are also covered, including The Secret Garden and Anne of Green Gables. Be on the lookout for variations between the two partnerships -- for instance, two different Goldilocks editions, each a beautiful depiction of the story.
