dolls palace

sometimes i feel like i just imagined the era of the internet where a bunch of young girls coded their own blogging websites and taught each other how to make glitter graphics, cartoon dolls, and aim icons on paint shop pro and animation shop because none of us could afford photoshop.

“On the right is Maiko Momotaro. I love the kimono of the girl next to her (second from the right), which is covered with images of Gosho Ningyo (Palace Dolls). Gosho Ningyo were special dolls that were commissioned by the Imperial Court families of Japan during the Edo period (1600 - 1867 CE), they are usually portrayed as rotund, cherub-like children at play.”  Text and image via Blue Ruin 1 of Flickr

Hi, cuties! Guess who got 10k followers just now? …Not me! But I did hit 1k, which is just as sweet and I’m incredibly happy about it and you have no idea how much I want to hug you all for following me~~ 

So, to celebrate, I thought I’d do my first Follow Forever! I follow a huge amount of blogs (well over 1000), but there are a few of them that hold a special place in my heart. Thank you all for being so great and running such adorable blogs! (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤
