Barbie for big girls.

Christmas in June!

The Poppys have landed….I repeat…The Poppys have landed!  I received a wonderful box yesterday and it feels like Christmas in June. 


Ahhhhhh….don’t you just love that new doll smell.




First out of the box was “Isn’t it Romantic”7184357005_b799562f85_c

Second was “ Miss Fairchild”



Saved the best for third….”Most Sophisticated”



Ahhhhhhhh!  She is just as gorgeous…maybe even more so ….than her promo pictures.  Complete and total love.


“The Chauffer’s daughter” ended the Poppy parade.



Tooooooo cute!

I also received FR2 Tatyana



So much to contemplate, it’s hard to know what to debox first…..

“Most Sophisticated” won hands down.   Just removed the pin from her hat and adjusted it lower and she was good to go.  This set is Amazing!  And the luggage!!!  Don’t even get me started on the fantastic luggage LOL!



Tatyana came out of the box second

Oh my those cheekbones!  Must get her into the studio ASAP.   My fingers are itching for my good camera and my light boxes.




Isn’t it romantic has some hair issues so she needs a few adjustments before her photos.  Thought I would share what I do for “hair adjustments”.  I like to have bangs lie flat against the head and not floating off the forehead so I slather it with gel and “train” it down with some ribbons.  This is a picture of what I mean



In 24 – 48 hours it should be set.  And the bangs will hopefully lie flat against her head and the back will lie close to her neck.  Will have to see how it turns out.

  1. Love the dolls! Your Miss Fairchild has the BEST bangs I’ve seen! 🙂 Very much like the promos! While I love all your new dollies, I think your kitchen is simply Marvelous! XOXO

    • Thank you so much Matty! LOL!! I was wondering if I would get comments on the kitchen. I love my dolls but I LOVE my kitchen. It is the true heart of my home and the place everyone gravitates to when people visit. Seriously…we never leave the kitchen. Back on point, I was so pleased with the bangs on Ms. Fairchild too.

    • Thank you so much Peter! Isn’t that a cool trick?! It works like a charm with wayward bangs. Just make sure you use a white ribbon so no chance of color transfer. Can’t wait to see you in a few short weeks!! Hug Stan for me and tell him we will miss him.

    • It was definitely a happy day 🙂 I hope to take some photos before Barbiecon but may have to wait until after. Hope you get Miss Fairchild tomorrow. She has the most beautiful face!

    I too just love the “new mint” doll smell! I thought I was only a few! LOL! Such a gorgeous set, Sabrina! Can’t waitro see studio shots of all her fashions! With the excitement of Barbie releasing another celeb silkstone from the classic Hollywood era, I’m hoping we will see a new Audrey Hepburn silkie in the near future! Muah!! Xo

    • I am hoping for the same! I would love to see an Audrey Hepburn Silkie. I am satisfied with the current Poppy as Sabrina dolls though. David Butry did a fantastic job for Integrity!!
