My ever-growing doll collections

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

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

Leaves are falling,
Winter’s calling

It’s November once again
You must remember.

Snow White– Saks Fifth Ave Exclusive LE1,000

Posted by helen on October 27, 2017

Limited to 1,000 world wide,  I added  her to the shopping cart, the total came out as $402 ($370 + Sales Tax),   Hmm… too much for me, so I dumped her.

Her price on eBay probably will be soaring up to $2k.  after all, its only 1,000 units worldwide.

but I really don’t have $402 right now, so I’ll go to Amazon & buy a $15 Snow White instead, she would be one of my DIY holiday projects..

Sunday Surprises

Posted by helen on October 22, 2017

My place looks no better than a Junk Yard. I can never find what I look for,  but something unexpected would show up  to surprise me.

This little doll turned up when I opened a “Trash Or Treasure” box, this is one of the two Integrity Dolls I have. I bought her out of curiosity,  I never bought more.   IT dolls don’t have the faces that I like, their clothes are better sewn than Barbie’s, fabric choices are also better than Barbie’s, but that’s all about it.

This doll is Monte Carlo Victoire Roux.    her original dress & coat are “Inspired” by vintage Balenciaga, I don’t remember where I put them,  perhaps  one day  a ghost will bring them to me.

now she is wearing “Gucci”

Her face has been repainted.

This is her original look:

Friday Night Cocktails…

Posted by helen on October 6, 2017

The Lavender Luxe Mermaid Gown now is a cocktail dress, Barbie is on her way to a Party:

The dress looks very romantic, and she holds a Genuine Leather Purse:

someone is going to buy her some drinks:

The Little sister  has barely reached drinking age:

but she has plenty of admirers.

This is the original Mattel “Blush N Gold” cocktail dress:

Wearing big sister’s dress:

She looks even prettier


so, Purple VS Blush,  which do you fancy?

The Witch is out!

Posted by helen on October 4, 2017

I have been watching  some documentaries about witchcraft on YouTube, it scares me.  But I’m not afraid of  Barbie,  she can’t do the Math,  she can’t build a website…   I figured she can’t cast a spell on anyone, either.  she  only likes to play dress-up…

Halloween is on its way!

Glam Gown

Posted by helen on October 3, 2017

I bought this doll as a part of my shopping therapy while feeling down. I don’t really like her face, the purple eye shadows don’t go well with her pink gown.

The  Gown does not live up to its $100 price tag. These visible stitches on her bust bother me.

the Bodice isn’t well tailored to fit the doll, the waist is too loose, the bust is too small, however, it fits Model Muse Dolls:

I decided to make a little alteration to hide these ugly stitches then pair it up with one of the Blue dresses I made for my “Winter Blue collection” , “Stunning in the spotlight” & “Blush N Gold” Dolls are competing in Blue & Pink:

Here they are getting ready for their Red Carpet presences:

At the Oscars:
