Happy Belated Holidays

I can't believe I missed them all...I hope everyone
enjoyed theirs.

Steve, Lydia, Trish and Daryl celebrated the holidays
Florida style.  I made the ladies dresses but got the
guys' outfits on eBay.

I got a few Barbie related items for Christmas but this
is a gift I bought for myself.

Continental Holiday Silkstone Barbie Giftset.
The Silkstone Barbies are not my favorite
dolls, but I really wanted one to round out
my collection.  I think she is very sophisticated
and love the outfit.

She hasn't been released
from her box yet because my birthday is
next week.....and if she plays her cards right
she may have a gentleman friend to make
her continental holiday that much more intriguing!

I have been very busy at work and just beat
when I get home so doll time has suffered.  But
there are some things in the works...a Valentine
vignette, 2 new dolls and major work on Gabrielle's
Paris apartment.

It's slow going but hopefully it won't be another
2 months!


  1.'s sooo good to see a post from you again. Happy to know your dolls had such a good holiday, especially clad in the pretty dresses you made for the girls and the cool outfits you got the guys. I'm not a big fan of Silkstone either, but they do come with lots of nice clothes and accessories. The one you have is quite nice! I too, buy myself a new doll for Christmas and for my birthday.

    1. Thanks April! I have been lurking around but not doing too much. Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things soon! The Silkstones do have beautiful clothes and I think I will have to purchase more outfits for my lady.....she looks high maintenance!

  2. Welcome back, Chris. Everyone looked good for the holidays. The Silkstone giftset is very nice.
