Happy Holidays –Ball Gown

Posted by helen on December 17, 2017

This would be the first time since I started doll collecting that I didn’t take advantage of Mattel’s promotions and buy some dolls at discounted prices…  As  I just couldn’t cope with Barbie’s bug-filled website any more.

so we are having a holiday ball without new dolls.

Old girls get new gowns.

The gown features fashion illustrations of  the 2016 & 2017 Silkstone dolls, its sort like a “Catalog” .

Let’s see if it looks good on a Brunette:

I’m almost certain I will buy a Happy Holiday 2017 Brunette doll after Christmas from Amazon Warehouse deals,  perhaps in Feb or March,  when her price hits $15.

Happy National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day.

Posted by helen on December 15, 2017

As ugly as it goes, Barbie could have won a prize. From Dior Couture to Salvation Army, this is Barbie’s  reality now.

Happy Ugly Sweater Day!

Decorating a Christmas Tree….

Posted by helen on December 9, 2017

its not an easy task, the more things she puts up,  the uglier the tree becomes, what to do?

Perhaps we need to make another shopping trip & buy more ugly things…

Happy Holidays

Posted by helen on December 1, 2017

Sad to see 2017 go. but happy holidays!

perhaps not a great year for Barbie & Barbie Collectors.  I only bought 3 silkstone dolls & one Barbie basics from the 2017 “Barbie Siganture”  collections, the rest dolls I purchased are older releases.

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by helen on November 23, 2017

My Thanksgiving started with deadly silence. I had no phone, cable TV & Internet Service. b/c some selfish idiots just decided to cut the fibers and ruin thousands of people’s holidays. from last night to noon, we didn’t have any services.  Now Spectrum is offering $50K reward for any information that leads to an arrest.  This has been happening so often since Sept.,  the service outage often lasts more than 15 hours.   I wish whoever did this gets a  “life in prison” sentence,   this person has nor morals,  I think he does not deserve to live,  he puts many people’s lives  in danger when all the services are cut. Especially these sick & weak people… no to mention many companies such as online stores lose their businesses.

Dinner at Eight,   Her Royal Highness Princess Snow White is your hostess.  Sorry, the Turkey is overcooked..

Snow White  is the only doll I bought this month, she is a Disney Store doll, I planned to make her a news dress, but the Blue Velvet I prepared for her is nowhere to be found, so no new outfits for her today. We’ll wait whenever the velvet turns up itself, I know I wouldn’t be able to find it, my place is too cluttered

The doll has the same size as Mattel’s Skipper doll. Her knees are not jointed, arms & wrists are. The box does not say which company manufactured her, its neither Mattel nor Hasbro.   I added a little touch-up on her face.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Feast and hope you get some great Black Friday Deals as well…

sorry, the tree behind her can win “the Worst Xmas Tree Contest”.

the winter holiday season begins

Posted by helen on November 21, 2017

well, it begins with the old tree, the old stockings and the old lady:

Please fill up my stockings with health & happiness, I don’t ask for jewels & convertibles.


hopefully,   busy Santa hears everyone’s plea.

Smitten with kittens

“Throw back Tuesday” (TBT) —an old photo from 2015. the featured doll is even older, she is Titanic Rose.

Happy November

Leaves are falling,
Winter’s calling
we are thankful
for our friends
It’s November once again
You must remember.
