    Poppy is such a beautiful doll! I love her dress and
    scarf, and her pink lipstick is perfect (any other color would just not work so well)

    • Thank you so much! I am glad you liked the redress and color combination. She really is beautiful and so very easy to photograph. 🙂

  5. Aww, thanks so much! She’s got such unique coloring that neutrals just called to me. Your girl looks fab here and I want to steal that scarf!!

    • Yes, you indeed called it. Neutrals on her are the thing. We are such accessory slaves aren’t we…always on the lookout for those perfect accessories for our diminutive divas. I will keep my eye out for an extra scarf 😉

    Fantastic! I sincerely think that scarf languishes in most collections, never really thinking to use it and questioning what to use it with. At least I know that is what mine is doing right now. The Look knit dress paired with the scarf are the perfect match. Brava!

    • Exacxtly Pam! You have stated it perfectly. This scarf has spent more time in a drawer or in a case in a doll store diorama for most of its tenure in my collection. It was time to put this baby where it was originally intended…on a model. I just got back from France and Austria where woman wear scarves all the time. It was time to bring that back into the States. 🙂

    A beautiful poppy, she has resemblance with spicy in spain! How about a photo together!

    • Thank you and excellent suggestion! I will see what I can do 😉

  8. Ahh! Your photos look wonderful like always. The doll has a perfect style. Knitted dress fits her more like an original Barbie City shopper, I think. Scarf and purses make outfit luxury.
    Yeah, your pics made my morning better :). I’ve just got desire to take my camera, dress a doll and make some photos too :).

    • Thank you so much Lilly. I could receive no greater compliment than that my pictures make you want to go have some fun yourself. 🙂 That is indeed the point of most of my photos. Enjoy!

  9. I love TYS Poppy Parker, and your redressing is great!

    • Thank you!! I love this Poppy as well. 🙂
