February 2nd, 2010

tn_2010-01-31 Full MoonIt’s snowing here again. It’s a very light snow, and Mom says that it probably won’t last very long. On Sunday, Mom attempted a photograph of the full moon. It’s very simple, but I guess it’s a step in the right direction. Her camera has setting for night landscape photographs, but I don’t think it really helped. She says that she may work on the idea of photographing outdoors at night when it is a bit warmer out. We couldn’t stay outside for very long because it was so cold!

Sir Woodstock introduced a new friend to the people who read his blog. His name is Prince Hector.  I think he writes from England as well. He seems to be a clever fellow! Look at his guest book! You can post pictures, and it gives your location. (It was wrong about mine, but it in the right country!)

I did not get to chat with my friends from the Bear Place today. Mom had off work, so I thought that the scheduling differences between England and the US finally could have been overcome! I was looking forward to meeting my friends. I have been blogging for a long time, but I’ve never chatted! Mom went shopping with her friend instead. Sigh. Well, at least we had a good morning together and I got to get a good nap in when she was gone!

tn_2010-02-02 Marlowe and Ruby (2) They went thrifting. Thrifting is the word that Mom and her friend uses for going to all the second hand places around where we live. Sometimes, she comes home with new friends, clothing, or books. Today she came home with new clothing and books. At one of the places, Mom found some vintage doll clothing that happened to fit my friends and I! Mom had to explain what vintage meant to us, We understood that it meant that the clothes were possibly even older then Mom! Mom bought the shirt for me, and when she got home, she decided that Ruby could be the model for the dress she found. Mom liked the shirt because it had little buttons and the dress because of the fabric. On the Bear Place, you can see a closer photo of the shirt. tn_2010-02-02 CalebIt was probably made by machine, but it is still pretty cool. The dress on the other hand is very handmade. Ruby wanted to wear it longer, but the back of it is torn and Mom says that she would get too cold!

She also found a little shirt for Caleb. It’s not vintage, nor does anyone here have any feelings for the state of New York. But it is difficult to find clothes Caleb’s size now that Build-a-Bear and Target no longer make the smaller BAB clothes. Mom seems to find a fair share of girl clothes his size, but she won’t make him wear them! We know that technically, plushies really don’t care too much about fashion trends, but it’s more of a principle! As long as the clothes are warm, Caleb doesn’t really care about how many clothes he has! Although I do think he misses the BAB clothes—because he could get some of them that looked like mine!

  3. Hi Marlow!
    I'm Jed Bramwell, @jedbramwell on twitter. I don't think we've met yet on there yet, but I found you on there via some mutual friends. I'm liking your blog! It's fun to get clothes, ain't it? I love clothes. It sure looks like you have a great life and lots of friends. I live with tito, my little monkey sidekick @tito_da_munky on twitter, and Jorge my stunt double (he doesn't twitter - yet), who we met at the thrift store. He heard us talking about my movie and looking for props, so he piped up and said he did stunt work, and then I noticed how much he looked like me. So he came to live withus, he's really cool but poor guy has lived a hard life.
    Anyways, I will try to keep up with yer blog, it's really nice. I gots one too, but it's not been update in a while. Must fix that. I'm at http://makingwanted.blogspot.com
    Anyways, see ya on twitter soon!
