Winter 2014 Trends to Sew: Part 1

We get a lot of catalogs at The DW headquarters.

You'd think catalog paper grew on trees, they send us so many.

Recently we got a Delia's holiday timey catalog that really intrigued us 
because it was not filled with cutesy, simpering outfits 
that make us want to gouge our eyes out.

Instead we found a lot of outfits that we would love to own.










^^^ We would literally buy and wear everything in these images. ^^^

We probably couldn't afford to eat anything for a year afterward, 
but we'd love to own them!

Part 2 will continue with a closer look at 
some of these Delia's pieces and style trends. :-)

End of the Year Poll: New-ish Pet Accessories

2014 was the year of 600 pet accessories,
which all cost as much for these fake pets as they do for real pets....

As nicely made as these accessories are, 
they are all a bit too cutesy for our collection. 
 Though they do fill a gap in the American Girl collection, 
especially for those people who spend more money 
on the pets than on the dolls.

Some people just don't have the space or the money for 20+ dolls, 
but they can accommodate 6 pets and their stuff. ;-)

Though we purchased the "new" Coconut, 
we decided not to get him any of these accessories.
We started plotting to get him a different set of accessories 
that suit his doggie-hipster personality instead.

We still have to get those things though--
they may be challenging to acquire.

Plus we find it mentally difficult to buy 
toy collars and carriers and pet bowls and food and treats
when we actually have to spend money on these things in real life.... 
On real, living breathing animals.... 
Hmmmm, priorities, priorities...
Sigh. ;-)

End of the Year Polls Continue: 2014 Pets

2014 saw the changing of the MyAG Pets line.

Who knew that was going to happen?

Well, some people saw it coming.
AG kept changing up the animal offerings so much these
past few years it was time they did something.

Does it really pay off to release a new dog
only to retire the thing half a year later?

Make a decision and stick with it AG.

So now we have six MyAG pets to choose from.
And they have more posable bodies.
And a host of expensive accessories.
(See tomorrow's poll to voice your opinion on those.)

We were planning on buying the Corgi puppy ourselves, 
but then discovered that Coconut was actually more posable. 
So we got one of those instead.

We wanted something that could sit and stand. 
And the Corgi only half-sat, like it was in the middle of taking a poo.
Not exactly what we were going for....

But we will probably buy the Corgi later.
Maybe we will take some comic dog-going-poo pictures...
I never said we aren't classy here at The DW. ;-)
