Molly’s New French Braids!

FullSizeRender-5Hey, girls!! It’s me, your Olly Molly here. I’ve missed you so much! Mom (You may know her as Madison) and Cécile and Celina are back in town, yay! If you ask Madison how her trip to Texas was, she will close her eyes and indulge in a glorious sigh before answering, “It was simply marvelous.”

I missed them, and Mom said I couldn’t post if she wasn’t here to make sure I didn’t mess up the blog settings or whatever.

Like I’d ever do that!

Anyways, guess what Mom did for me when she came back?

FullSizeRender-3She tried French braids on me! At first, she did horrible. But this is the second try, and for the first time in forever, I have French braids! What do you think?

FullSizeRender-8Since my hair isn’t quite as nice as it was when Madison only had me, it may look a little frizzy and dry. And it is, but that means I’m loved. Because my hair is textured like this, it does best in braids, and Mom and I both want to keep it looking the nicest it can. But one can get tired of simple, boring braids day after day, and Mom felt sorry for me. So she was determined to try French braiding – and what do you know? I love this ever so much more than my original braids, but they’re still braids, and so my hair will still be kept the nicest it can!

FullSizeRender-9I love it, I love it, I love it! What do you think?

FullSizeRender-4I also paired the Amythest birthstone earrings with the dress I’m wearing. It doesn’t exactly match the background, and sorry that the lighting is a little off. Today is a very busy day, with company coming and a meeting to go to and Madison doesn’t want to fuss with the 60D camera for a quick update. So I’ve relented to let her to pictures of my braids with her iPhone.

FullSizeRender-6Well? Be honest now – I can take the truth! How do my braids look?

FullSizeRender-5Bye girls! God bless y’all!

Have you ever tried French braids in you, or your doll’s hair? What do you think of my new ‘do?


P.S. Ellie-Joy’s birthday is February 28th! We’re so excited for it…

    Cute! Madison did a great job on your hair. 😉 I can’t French braid . . . I’ve tried, and they turn out looking horrible. So I get my mom to French braid my dolls’ hair.

    I think she looks great Madi! You did an awesome job! I am HORRIBLE at french braiding! XD!
    Also did you know that I got a new doll? I got #55 and her name is Amelia! If you want check her out on my blog!
    Yeah, my Molly’s hair is pretty frizzy too! Like you, i don’t think of her as worn-just loved! Molly was my first doll, and she is for sure my favorite!

      Thanks so much! I was horrible too, and always got my mom to french braid my doll’s hair. LOL. But then I decided just to try it a few more times, and what do you know? Practice makes progress! 😛
      Oooh, congrats on getting #55! My BFF has her and she is so pretty! Amelia is such a sweet name for her.
      Molly was my first doll, too – she always has a special place in my heart! 😀

    I can’t French braid very well, so my mom does it when I want them. I think you’re new hairdo is AMAZING!!! This is very nice and neat and simple. And by the way Madi, I heard that if you wash her hair with weak conditioner it will be in better condition (I have not tried this on any of my dolls, so try at your own risk. You had the guts to downy dunk it, right?) but since molly is 4 years old, this may or may not fix it very well. Like I said, try at your own risk!

      Molly says thank you so much!! 😀 I tried doing that once, (washing with mild conditioner) and it did make her hair a little softer 😀 .

      So, I almost typed this earlier. Then I didn’t. Now, I am going to.
      My Molly’s hair is almost NEVER up in braids. Why? Because I like her hair down. I’m willing for her hair to be ‘not perfect’ so that I can enjoy her. Different strokes for different folks- I don’t keep my dolls in-box. Some people do. Your Molly has imperfect hair? Somebody else may have a mint Molly. All Mollys are different. 🙂

        I liked my Molly’s hair down, too. It looked so beautiful and wavy and brunette and lovely! 😀 I wish I had taken better care of it when I first had her! I unknowingly brushed her hair with plastic, thinking all along it was a wire wig brush! Now, keeping my Molly’s hair in braids is best for her hair in this condition. I didn’t mean to say that EVERYONE’s Molly’s is supposed to be kept in braids, just that braids is the best way to maintain it if it’s in this condition. Sorry for the miscommunication! 😛

          No, that wasn’t what I meant! :p I know that you accidentally brushed your Molly’s hair with a plastic brush- and I knew what you meant about your doll- I was just saying, that I don’t seem to care anymore what people say about my bushy-haired Molly. 😛 Sorry for the miscommunication!

        I can’t find your blog! Blogspot said you deleted it. Did you, anonymousA? I spelled it right and found the link on ag homeschool (I don’t have an email address, so I can’t register ? but I like reading posts) and typed that in but nothing! Did you?!?

        • AnonymousA February 21, 2016 at 8:53 am - Reply

          No, I have not deleted it. Try this.

            I have no clue why it would say that I had deleted it. I certainly have had no other problems of that sort before now. I actually posted my Wordcrafters chapter recently. Maybe if you Google “Happy Days with AnonymousA” it will come up.

    This is a sad post. I almost cried. I almost never cry, except for when I watch the fox and the hound with my little sister and I see the scene where the old lady drops the fox in the woods. ?

    Because of how Molly’s hair is all frizzy and dry. 🙁

      Oh yeah. I figured that’s what you meant. 🙁 I really miss the days when her hair was all dark brunette and soft and luscious and beautiful.

    Adorable, Molly! That’s great for a second try! Samantha’s hair is the same way, and I’ve learned that fishtail/French braids are super easy, and a fishtail braid, or Dutch braids are variations too! Samantha loves braids too!

    Can you do a tutorial on how to make French braids on your doll? I would like to try it on Isabelle!

      That’s a great idea! I really want to try and do that soon. ?
