Looking forward to an early weekend and sunny skies in Cali with the fam.🌴oh and new prospects for my #mermagdolls. Restock when I get back.πŸ’•

Happy Valentine's Day friends! Thinking this year we'll make a batch of heart cookie faces inspired by our clay magnets from a few years back. β€οΈπŸ’• #mermagvalentines

We made a bunch of king and queen valentines and had a queen of hearts wand decorating galentines party with her friends - all moments which were captured on film and all which mysteriously disappeared after we downloaded them. Oh and she ate half of her class valentines the next day,....So were throwing it back again to our swan Valentines catch all box - a fav friend around here. (Also my camera replacement battery is still in Paris..) #mermagvalentines

She fluctuates between ballerina, Moanna, actress, nurse, mommy, a comedian and super girl on a 10 min basis | also I found this vintage Laura Ashley wallpaper a while back at a Colorado flea market and wishing I had more then one roll to cover our hall walls. (Scouring eBay πŸ™πŸ»). | Also lots of Christmas πŸŽ„ magic happened in feb at #thebanisterhouse with the magical touch of stylist @metacoleman_ and @sunsetmag. Only 10 more months before we can share πŸ˜±πŸŽ„πŸ‘ŒπŸ».

Aiden 🐰, shy but loyal friend and perfect snuggle bunny, is getting an updated look this year with a slightly new ear shape. Are you as ready to hop into spring as he is? @merrileeliddiardshop #mermagdolls

Staying cozy in this drafty house anyway we can. Vintage faux fur collars from Paris are acceptable means of doing just that. (And all the 😍 for my fav dress from @mercishopparis) #thebanisterhouse

Little Babbette, you came to me in an instant. Saying slow down. Pay attention. There's a story here. It starts all around you. With your loved ones, in your creative heart, in your simple life around you. It's here. #merillustration

His brother had the assignment to be Shakespeare in his schools wax museum. So we made an Elizabethan collar from coffee filters which has now become a play thing for all kings, queens and nobles and most especially court jesters in the house. #mermagcostumes

Lots to catch up on today. Still wishing I was waking up looking forward to a walk across the street to the nearest boulangerie and picking up a pain de chocolate before i start my day. But I'm also excited to put all the inspiration of the city to work. ❀️ #merillustration

Brought home a little pink French settee from Paris to contrast all her modern vintage Creative Playthings doll house furniture (found on eBay). But her absolute favorite was the cute little sea green garbage can on the basement level. (My fav too - see more doll house play - and a special dance routine πŸ˜‰- in stories πŸ’•). #mermaghouses #playfulbrownstones

Dreaming of this tiled bathroom at #museenissimdecamondo while I wait in Canada during my 4 hour layover before I get back home to my babes. Oh how I miss them sooooooo. Can't wait to share so many gems of Paris with them. #mermagtravels

Quite sure I know just what my next cardboard doll house is going to look like πŸ’™β€οΈ #parisrooftops #paris #pariswinter
