So here is a past picture of Astrid showing off her fridge and sink, so cute! Astrid is a Fisher Price My Friend Doll, a Jenny to be precise. I have two Jenny dolls, one's name is....Jenny! And this is Astrid. Jenny is a very simple girl, she likes plain dresses, aprons, leggings and solid colors. Astrid has green highlights in her hair and likes loud patterns, colorful shoes and lots of jewelry and ribbons! Jenny is my original My Friend Doll that I got for my 2nd birthday.
Astrid was an ebay purchase and what I really wanted from the lot she was in were the Fisher Price My Friend Doll clothes patterns that you used to be able to buy at the toy store. Now I can make them all sorts of new outfits and swap them with friends! But I'm glad I got another doll with the package deal because they both have VERY different personalities and it gives me an excuse to make all types of clothes for them!

This Friday, the Oprah show will be about puppy mills. Thanks to a billboard placed by Main Line Animal Rescue of Pennsylvania, this topic is getting some greatly-needed mainstream media attention. (Lancaster county, Pennsylvania has the highest concentration of puppy mills of any county in the US, but Missouri has more then any other state.) If you know of someone in the market for a puppy (and are worried they may be tempted by an online puppy or a pet store) suggest they tune in on Friday for the whole story.
