She's Wonderous!

Welcome Friends!

I'm back with another post for today. 

As I've mentioned in other posts, every time I go to the store (Like Target or Wal-Mart) I always cruise through the dolly aisle. You have to right? 

Well this time it was Target. And I'm SO glad I also checked the clearance section because I found this little gem. 

The most beautiful Way Too Wonderland Lizzie Hearts! I almost couldn't believe my eyes. She was only $7.49! I searched and searched for the others but I must have been too late. Why was she discounted so much? Not sure but I am NOT going to complain! Target also had basic wave dolls (like Bunny Blanc and Faybelle Thorn) for $11.99. What a savings!

But I love this Lizzie. She is so beautiful and so perfect! Not sure what I think of the flamingo on the side of her head though. Might have to change that up and put it on top. It's secured on by hang tags. 

(a word of note. I had a difficult time getting her out of the box. FIVE hang tags on her head. Brutal!)

Her hair is extremely lackluster coming out of the box. Flat as a pancake. I had to brush and brush to get it to look halfway decent. I think she is a candidate for a spiral perm boil-dip.

But she is so pretty! I just love her! Looking at her from afar I kind of like the side flamingo. I might leave it for now. In the webisodes the flamingo is definitely on TOP of her head. 

Her upper dress is a simple aqua and she wears a necklace/shoulder guard combo with hearts.

And the ringlets are super cute with shades of purple and red mixed into her jet black hair. 

And the Queen of Hearts card collar? Stunning!

Lizzie doesn't carry a "purse" but a clock

It opens up to reveal a clock that's perfect for Wonderland. It might take a bit of force to get this to open. Mine appeared to be stuck. After one opening it does release a bit easier now. 

Perfect skirt: hearts and cards and spirals..... And a super cute open in the front design!


Could these not be more perfect for her? Hearts on the heel, cards on the back with an overall checkerboard pattern with hearts adorning the toe. 

So cute.

Her earrings are perfect, little queen chess pieces with a heart on top. 

And her ring? It's a hedgehog! So cute!

A picture of her hair, post brushing. As you can see it turned into frizz city. Yep, time for a perm. 

So, what do you think of Way Too Wonderland Lizzie Hearts? Planning on adding her or any of the others to the collection? 

I'll have more stuff coming up in the next few weeks! 

Until next time!

A Birthday Surprise


Here I am with a new post for you all! Finally right? :)

First of all I want to say that I do respond to every comment. Sometimes I don't get to them right away but I do get to them! Even if you leave a comment on a post that is a couple of years old, I still get them delivered to my email. Lately my email has not been letting me know when I get a new message so I apoloize if I've missed one along the way. 

I did get this comment a while ago and she would like some help ID'ing this outfit. I know someone who is AWESOME at outfit ID's. Can we help her out?

This is NOT my photo. This picture was a screen grab from Anderson's All-Purpose Flickr album. I hope it is okay if I shared. If not please let me know and I will take it down.
So as the title suggests, I celebrated a birthday last Tuesday and I received a gift from my wonderful hubby and son. I came home to a beautiful potted mum. Bright yellow and orange, perfect for fall! I also received a bag with a gift inside. 

The Moonlight Halloween Barbie! Hubby definitely knows what I like!

I started taking pictures of her in the box but then I realized that the bottom of the box had a tab so I could take her out and get some nice boxed but deboxed pictures!

Much better! She is so pretty and has a pretty face. Super cute cat ears! And I love the asymmetrical necklace.

I LOVE the dress! Cute little cat faces and a pretty purple color. I also like the corset top even if it is only printed on the dress. 

And cute shoes. I do like how Barbie shoes have gotten more fun since the introduction of the Fashionistas. 

There is even a cute little maze on the back where you can help Blissa the cat find the house to trick or treat. Or Trick or tret?

I can't believe that Mattel let that big of a typo slip on the box. Or is it some kind of funny that I'm missing?

I just love her and love that my husband got her for me! She will go perfectly with my other Halloween dolls. However this is not the doll you will want to buy for a body. She is a stiffie so she would be a good candidate for a rebody.

Friends, what do you think of Moonlight Halloween Barbie? Leave me a comment letting me know!

I have pictures taken for my other posts so I'll get those up in the next few weeks. 

Until next time!

New Post Coming!


I know my posts have been scarce. With my collection boxed up and finding absolutely NO loot at garage sales or thrift stores, my posts have been few and far between. 

But I never fear because my dad comes though for me every single time. And this time my hubby too!

I will have a post coming in the next week or so. I just got some awesome items that I can't wait to share with you all. Just got to get some pictures up and ready!

As always, you can subscribe to the blog and it will come right to your inbox so you don't need to check back. Only if you want to.

See you in a bit!
