Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July from Prue and her snuggle bunny!  She chose to take a subtle approach to sporting red, white, and blue today :oD

Lost Packages and Backgrounds and Bears, Oh My!

This is kind of a mishmash post! 

First of all, an update on Margaret the Woodlee (which I just typed as Miranda the Woodlee, WHOOPS!  Guess I'm just excited Miranda is back!).  She is still in Anchorage!  Tracking says she passed through a sorting facility there on June 29th, and again yesterday.  I wonder what she thinks is so interesting about Anchorage?!  Let's hope she makes her way back to Colorado soon so we can get this ironed out.  Poor Prue is not handling all these unknowns very well.

Also, here is the promised photo of Patch and Pie, the Pumpkin bear twins!  I wanted to get some green ribbon for Pie's ears before I shared a photo.  Aren't they darling?  I think I've accepted that they will both be staying, and I'm not exactly sad about it, either :oD

 Now I need a bit more advice.  American Girl just came out with some pretty awesome large cardboard backdrops to use with their dolls.  There is a gala scene, classroom scene, park scene, and winter scene.  I am interested in the latter two.  This is the park scene and this is the winter scene (I promise these are links, can't figure out how to get the font a different color since I use a fancy template).  Of course they would mostly be for use with my American Girl dolls, but I'd love to be able to use them with my tiny dolls.  Do you all think they would work for smaller dolls like Pea and Jessi Lynn, or would the scale look really bizarre?  They are tiny dolls living in a big world so I'm inclined to think it could work, but I don't want them to be barely visible in front of the giant scene (if I want to show the entire backdrop) or have the scene be illegible in closer photos.  What do you all think?
