Happy Easter

It's raining cats and dogs this weekend,
but that will not deter Halaina from
wearing her Easter finest!

Classique #10150 Flower Shower (the
name seems appropriate for our weather)
is the perfect Easter outfit.  It screams
'SPRING' loud and proud.  And what
self respecting woman goes to church
on Easter without a fashionable chapeau!
Yes, Halaina is ready for Easter.

Happy Easter!

Happy St. Patty's Day

Francie is celebrating St. Patty's day
in this cute little green Sparkle Girl
dress.  I love the fringe....very retro.

Gwendolyn is also stepping out to
celebrate the luck of the Irish in
this hot little number....also a new
Sparkle Girl dress (I surprised when
I found this.....their dresses aren't
usually this flashy or trashy).

Hope you have a Happy St. Patty's Day!

Mary Elizabeth and Kevin

Mary Elizabeth's new boyfriend, Kevin,
is teaching her to skateboard.

She is getting the hang of it.

Ah, young love......they are adorable.

Mary Elizabeth is wearing a new
Sparkle Girl dress and Kevin, surprisingly,
fits in current Ken clothes.....except for the
shoes.  This poor lad is going to be
wearing these periwinkle high tops the
rest of his plastic life!

Sleeve Dress

I was cleaning out my closet last weekend
and as I pulled some old tees and sweaters
off  for a trip to Goodwill, I started thinking
I should use some of them to practice making
knit doll clothes.  So  I hacked off the sleeve
of a cream colored long sleeve Target tee....
and here is Gabrielle's new dress!

It's very simple but elegant I think.  It
is paired here with the vintage
gold belt from 'Silken Flame' and
awful gold Vegas showgirl shoes.

Gabrielle thinks she looks hot.

Here she has paired it with a bright
purple vinyl top and lavender accessories.
She loves this look!

Showing more versatility, she is wearing
it as a skirt with some cute tops.  Perfect
for summer parties.

And with a chill still in the evening
air she wears it with one of the
beautiful sweaters made by my friend,
Carol, and a little scarf crochet by

I love this little dress, but most of all
Gabrielle loves it!  Who knew 7" of
tee shirt sleeve could be so darn cute!

Cool Collecting Barbie #25525

I really hadn't any plans to by
any dolls for fact
I have been thinking of down-
sizing my collection a bit.  But
we all know how that goes!

I stumbled across her on eBay and now
here she is!  I love her outfits and hair-
style.  The cool toys are a bonus too!
I even like her box, it's resealable.

She comes with sunglasses and a cute
little (fully lined) tote.

So, welcome, Beverly!
