OldI enjoy my dolls. I have all my life. Sometimes the joy comes from simply gazing at their perfect presentation in a Never Removed From Box environment. Sometimes it is from redressing, styling, and photographing them. One of the very best presented dolls in my opinion is Born to Gamble Kyori from the 2005 IFDC.
NewWith the receipt of my replacement doll bodies, I have the opportunity to change many of my dolls. In addition, I was able to purchase the head of a doll that was recently released by Integrity, Forever Veronique. She reminds me a great deal of the 2006 Table Centerpiece Lights, Cameras, Royal Blonde from the Integrity Convention. That doll is one that has always been one of my favorites.
She is wearing a Randall Craig ensemble with the FR purse.
I have been playing with my Vintage Barbie more and more. I recently found the complete and almost mint Drum Majorette outfit for 1964. It cost all of $32. It looks great on my American Girl. I photoshopped her photo to make it more lifelike.
I was at Target recently and found the 003 Collection of Barbie basics in swimsuits. I have grown very fond of Model 04. The blue jeans version with red hair has a permanent spot in my collection and has been given the name Carli. I thought it would be great to get the blonde and have twins.
