Barbie for big girls.

Tropicalia–Day 2.02

Wow!  How did it get to be 3:30PM already?!!  Time has traveled at warp speed for me today.  I attended a very informative repaint workshop done by Cindy Lorimer .   She was a very good speaker and was very organized so I feel like I learned a fair bit.  Right after the workshop, I decided to reshoot some of the collection dolls ( photos on my flickr) and then it was on to the Poppy Parker Luncheon. 


Here is the doll that graced the center of each table.  “Sea Breeze” Poppy Parker



Dag!!  I already won my right to purchase so I was out of luck for this Poppy.  Half of the table got one of these lovelies and it was really fantastic to see the large group of Poppy lovers at our table have the opportunity to take these home.  Happy people all the way around Smile.  David Butry took the opportunity to tell us about his inspiration for upcoming Poppy parker design and it is…. 1964-1965 World’s Fair.  How fun!!




Can’t wait to see what Integrity anf Mr. Butry has in store for Poppy and us next year!  David Butry also shared that Poppy will have a new friend.  Her name is Loni Lawrence and yes…we ALL received one.  She is soooooo adorable!

    Rebecca – Meeting you and talking dolls was one of the true high points of my convention. You are one of the most charming individuals I’ve ever met – and so generous with information. I hope to spend more time with you at future conventions – Robyne
