Happy New Year from Clark and Joan.......

I received these 2 from Tonner's virtual factory sale. I knew I was going to get Rhett/Clark eventually as Gable was one of my favorites from Old Hollywood and GWTW is my favorite movie of all time. I also wanted one of the Joan dolls as I think she's one of the best character likenesses that Tonner has ever done, even though Joan Crawford wasn't one of my favorite actresses. At the price Tonner offered these 2 for in the factory sale I just couldn't resist. Thought I would take a few pics of Clark out of his costume, and since he did do several movies with Joan and they supposedly had a relationship at one time I thought it would be fun to take pics of the 2 of them together. I'm hoping to add Ava Gardner and Bette Davis at some point. I am really keeping my fingers crossed that Tonner will come out with Grace Kelly within the next year too!

Lace is my newest Kish kid. She's one of LN Harris' wonderful creations. I've admired LN's work with the Kish kids for so long, and when she posted this dark haired Tulah I just knew she was perfect for me. I love Tulah's sculpt, and have wanted one with dark hair for quite a while. I"m so glad to have Lace living here. Lace's hat is also by LN, and her outfit is by Janice Mundy.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Hope everyone out there is having a wonderful Christmas!! No new dolls for me under the tree, but hubby did get me a laptop. Yay!!! (And heaven knows with all the recent sales I've bought enough dolls on my own, LOL!) Speaking of recent sales, my haul from the Tonner's virtual factory sale came this week. Joan, Bon Voyage came first followed by Rhett in the white suit and Agent 99. I'm really happy with all of them. Agent 99 is so striking in person. Much lovlier than her promos IMHO. I"m calling her Anne, and decided to take a couple of pics of her to share. She is pictured here with my blonde Jeremy (also a fairly new arrival). Jeremy's sweater is from NadineUK. From my house to yours, Merry Christmas everyone out in doll land!!

Another Brenda Starr recently joined the fold. I can't help it................when I saw this girl, who had been switched to a BW body on ebay for a good price I just couldn't help but add her to my crew. I love Brenda. I have more factory Brenda's in my collection than any other sculpt. (Even though a majority of them have red hair and blue eyes, and quite a few are even on BA bodies). There is just something about that dimpled face that just really draws me in. I'm really sorry she's no longer being produced. This version of Brenda, called 24K, has gold hair and gold glitter in her eye shadow, making her very different from the rest of my Brenda's.

My version of the Snow Queen.........

Tonners Coronation Queen wearing this Oz outfit is one of my very favorite combos. She sits on my display table in my dining room every Christmas. Just felt like taking some pics of her tonight to share.

Dolly family Christmas pics.........

Took the second round of dolly family Christmas pics today. Thought I would share Mary and Jessamyn's family here for the day. Dad is Quinn, a repainted Russell by the fabulously talented Sonya Giddens. He's had a bit of resculpting work done too. Sonya really has a knack with the mandolls. Wish she had time to do more! Esme was enhanced by Gena Claire as I didn't like her original lip color. The girls dresses were made by the wonderfully talented Janice Mundy.

Baking time..........

Pippi and Donegal have their baking utensils all ready to help mom make the Christmas cookies. The "utensils" were Hallmark ornaments (last year I think) and they are the perfect size for the Kish girls. The girls outfits are from Janice Mundy.

Christmas is coming.........

Christmas is coming faster than I want it to this year, LOL! So many photos I want to take, so little time (and daylight, can I say how much I hate daylight savings time....grrr........) to take them. I did manage to get a few photos of Zsu Zse with her family this past weekend. They decided to go with a brown/red theme to match Zsu Zse's dress. Dad is Bruce Wayne Batman and Mom is a repainted Mei Li by Jenise Mah that I call Ciara.

Serafina Pekkala........

A new girl arrived this past week. I had been eyeing Serafina Pekkala from the Golden Compass line, but I'd seen very few pics of her. Well, when Cherished Friends put her on sale last week I took a gamble and ordered her. I'm really glad I did. She has a really lovely sculpt. Her headsize is smaller too, more like the older Tonner molds. Lovely, soft, curls. She's a winner all around IMHO. It's always fun to add a new sculpt. This one is definetely a keeper!
