  • i just found your blog and i’ve been going back reading it for a few hours now (i’m stuck in bed because i just got my tonsils out) and its put me in the best mood! love your blog, so cheery!

  • I love the dolls too. I bought my little girl one when I was pregnant with her. I dreamed of filling the bottom with notes of how special she is, and letting her find them when she’s older.

    I should have kept it in a special spot, because she’s already smashed her pretty head off!

    Have fun collecting them. xx

  • so beautiful! love the dolls, i want to start collecting toys but i haven’t decided which ones just yet…

  • Momiji dolls are adorable!! I always have to stop myself from buying them because I already collect dunnys (dunnies?). But I love them too ^_^

  • I’ve had my eye on Momiji dolls for awhile now – they make the best little gifts and collection. The best part are the little sayings that come with them, describing their personality:
    ie. “I like escapology and cups of tea”

  • Those dolls are so cute, a few newsagents around here have them.
    Love the photos too, I really want to be a mummy one day.

  • Those dolls are really cute, they remind me of the It’s A Small World ride at Disney.

  • Momji dolls are ADORABLE! Thanks for sharing those! I also love the picture of the two little girls in the water…it absolutely reminds me of myself and a friend when we were little. Very cute!

  • I saw your Blog through my friend Lindsay from Pixies and Bears and I finally got a chance to check it out! I love the dolls, they are so cute, my favorite is the one dressed as a kitty. I really like the first picture, it is so festive and sweet, thanks for sharing them! I am a mommy and it put a smile on my face!

  • My boyfriend recently got a new job and his office is VERY bland and boring. I am quite crafty around the house but can’t for the life of me think of d.i.y ideas for his office. He is open to just about anything, but I don’t want to over-do it. I thought maybe I could come to yr blog to find inspiration and ask about it, if you could point me in a direction of blogs that would have more inspiration for a manly yet nicely put together office space.

  • momiji dolls are ADORABLE. love them. Have you seen kimmidolls? i have a small collection of Kimmis and other kokeshi dolls, which I love.

    Ps – My six year old daughter and I were crafting with your 70’s child craft kit earlier, and she decided that you are “a madd amazing artist.” <3

  • Momiji dolls are really big in Aus right now (and the cheaper tackier ones which btw are also cute!) I started a collection about four months ago! You should check out harajuku bears! They are also ultra cute…

  • so good.With the ugg boots obsession going so far, it was only natural for many shoe manufacturers to come with cheaper replicas of these famous boots.

  • Thanks for dropping us some love! So glad we could make you laugh! Thanks for the free download of the mustaches.

  • Keeping Standard Bank’s links of london

    Maree says: “There had been a big consumer boom in South links of londonAfrica and the bad debts started to rise well before the global crisis arrived. We have had a sustained rise in NPLs over quite a long period now, and we would see that turning. Provisions have reduced profitability, but they haven’t done any major damage. In the retail business (and the biggest category of personal lending for us is mortgages) we expect NPLs to peak somewhere links of london jewelleryin the first quarter of next year.” links of london rings

    Maree is not necessarily a South Africa bear. “We see South Africa as a high-return-on-equity, medium-growth environment. It’s our home base. links of london bracelet We’ve been here 150 years,” he says. But the country has been the main contributor to a situation in which the group’s non-performing loans reached 5.3% this summer — up from 3.4% in December last year. links of london earrings

    Keeping Standard Bank’s position in South Africa is “absolutely front of mind,” according to Maree. “The way we see it, our home base gives us the licence to continue growing and expanding. If the home base were to fall on hard times that would prejudice the entire links of london bracelets strategy,” he says.

    But one of the reasons why Standard Bank embarked on its international expansion strategy was because of the limits to growth in a market where it already enjoys market shares of 20% and more. Faster economic growth in the rest of Africa and in other sweetie braceletemerging markets were other reasons for the expansion — and that is why other South African banks have looked north in the continent too. South Africa, with just 0.6% of global GDP and 50 million people, is not going to become the next Brazil, or the next Russia. links of london jewellery
