Twelve Dolls of Christmas 2014 - Part 5 to 12

That Holiday Feeling Poppy Parker
by Integrity Toys

So, my attempt for Twelve Dolls of Christmas bombed once again!  No matter.  Here's a couple of catch-up pics from the cast of 'The Girl from I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y. in 2014.  I've shoved them all in one photo for your viewing pleasure!

From left to right:
Arm Candy Chip Farnsworth the 3rd,
Agent Kimiko Gunn Tina Tanaka,
Sebastien Havoc Francisco Leon,
Mayhem in Monte Carlo Poppy Parker,
That Holiday Feeling Poppy Parker,
Spy-A-Go-Go Poppy Parker,
Mistress of Disguise Poppy head,
Agent Lotta Danger Poppy Parker

They may be agents but they, too, like to celebrate the holidays, groovy hat and all!

The photo doesn't show it above, but during the shoot I discovered that my 'That Holiday Feeling Poppy' has an eczema spot on her cheek....*sigh*  I gotta remind myself to always check my dollies thoroughly as I get them.

I hope everyone had a bit of a breather during the holiday season.
Stay tuned for 2014 doll highlights and Happy Wednesday!

Twelve Dolls of Christmas 2014 - Part 4

Short Flip Hair Francie

I just got her last night.  She is definitely a must share Francie doll.  Beautiful coloring all over, which is not the easiest to find these days.  Yes her waist is a bit swingy but at least it swings.  Her knees bend three times as it should and her face-up is just absolute perfection!  Can you tell I'm excited?  Her hair needs some styling.  The original curls are there but they were poofed up.  I tried taming them quickly yesterday but I've never had a Francie doll with this hair style and I'm not sure what curl goes where.  I'll have to try again another time.  In the mean time, her new doll family welcomes her home.  As I've mentioned in the past, Francie tends to be associated with Christmas in my house since I first got one.  I'm glad this one found its way home to spend the holidays with me!

Seven more days till Christmas!
Happy Wednesday!

Twelve Dolls of Christmas 2014 - Part 3

"Lady Lee"
Madame Alexander doll

Madame Alexander dolls have always been one of my great temptations.  Each year I glance at lots of pretty ones at the doll show or the toy show.  Each year I pass up on them.  This year, one finally called out to me to take her home.

Meet my very first Madame Alexander doll, Lady Lee.  She's got one of those cute distant stares that tells me she's a daydreamer, perfect for visions of sugar plum fairies, nutcrackers and mouse kings!
