I am feeling better and have managed to stay well for almost a month now *gasp*. Please pray for me that I don't get something again. I don't think my feeble body can handle it. Only 3 1/2 months left to go until new baby and I'm getting very large. I can DO IT! So I should be able to update the blog more frequently now that I'm well.
I just had a birthday and I used some of my money on a new video doorbell (adulting!) and....Barbie shelves for the office! First order of business on the new shelves, getting all the holiday dolls displayed.
Check it out!
And another shelf on the adjacent wall.
So there wasn't enough space to put all the holiday dolls side by side so we stacked some of them. And with the addition of the 1988 doll that I got from my dad last Christmas, I have them ALL! *squee*
There was also space to put some of my favorites.
All have been featured on this blog! I especially love the I Love Lucy candy factory one.
And some next to my Ever After High Dolls. A couple of these were on the shelves before such as Ice Cream Romper and Halloween Barbie and Kelly.
And one more addition that I just HAD to bring out. I couldn't leave her packed away. There was not room on the shelf so she is here for now.
Next on the list is to make a little riser for the EAH dolls so I can have them in front and in back. That way they don't take up so much space. But for now I LOVE it and am so glad I could bring out my beautiful holiday dolls. And all I have to do is look up a little to my left and I have my beautiful Mackie dolls from 2005 and 2006 :)
This weekend I got a new addition, a birthday present from my dad. This is the 2003 DC Comics Barbie as Batgirl doll!
She does not have a serious face but her typical smile. I think it makes for a very cute doll.
She comes with a keychain box for you and holds a bat in her gloved hand. She also comes with a stand and she wears yellow boots.
The back of the box has an illustrated version of Batgirl and other characters in the series like Wonder Woman and Super Girl.
And the last doll I am featuring today is one from my collection that I've had since I was a little girl. This a beautiful Sandy doll called "Magic Moments."
I featured her before in a very very brief post. But in those pictures I left her in the box and she had a teardrop missing form her left earring. Pictures from inside the box when she has been opened? What's up with that? Let's use some deboxed pictures!
I have always loved her face and jewelry.
But her dress is absolutely to die for! Long waisted with a ruffle at the top. ANd the black and stars? Love!
Also, that long long hair. So awesome!
Well, that's all for today. Do you have BatGirl or any Sandi dolls in your collection? Let me know in the comments below!
I'm going to work on the cleaning of the vintage dolls so I'll have those results for my next post. Until then!
