Tulip Festival!

There is a tulip festival about to happen over at Bellissima Couture.  As many of you know, Hilda Westervelt( Bellissima Couture) and I are good friends and frequently collaborate on projects together.  I met Hilda through this wonderful world of collecting and I am so thankful every day for that friendship.  That’s why when we get to work together on something, it becomes extra special. 

Recently, Hilda and I worked on developing a set of fabrics for some of her divine fashions.  I came up with a tulip fabric that Hilda then helped me tweak to bring it into better scale with her fashions.  This is how the collaboration turned out.  I love working with my amazingly talented friends!

Wow!  Lilith come home to Mama!!  She will be the first one in my cart.  I adore the other 2 actually so this will be a full meal deal for me this year.  I wish Lilith had a different color variant of hair.  Would have been kind of cool to have a darker turquoise or something but as it stands, the photos make it appear that Lilith has a slightly darker and bluer lavender than Eden.  It could just be lighting in the photos but will only be able to tell in hand.  Also, Lilith’s outfit isn’t a “WoW” like Eden’s was but…I figure the pieces will complement Eden’s nicely.  I am seriously loving the pink shoes and jewelry!!  Thank you Jessy!

Is it just me or is someone else humming boogie woogie bugle boy when looking at Eugenia?  Love the military vibe going on there.  I also like the adorable school girl look going on with this brown haired, scarlet lipped Poppy.  That hat we have seen a gazillion times but the adorable crimson backpack, knee socks and sporty black fingerless gloves brought this Poppy to my shopping cart.

For those of you out there that read this blog and are not currently enrolled in the WClub ( why not?!!)…and you have an interest in joining, here is what you need to know.

Spring Fever-Casual

It’s a known fact that in the Pacific Northwest we many times don’t really see sunshine for months and months from November through February.  The holidays take up some of that time and normally we Pacific Northwesterners deal with it well during that time.  Once the holidays are over though…all bets are off.  I normally hit January with a hunger for the sun.  If the sun doesn’t come to us, I will invent it in my photos.  I’m bringing out the pastels and dreaming of sunshine!!

Poppy Breaks Out

Hello intrepid followers.  It feels like every time I try to get to the blog something blocks the path.  For the past month and a half it’s been mother nature and a pesky furnace that just doesn’t want to get with the program.  While snow is beautiful and it turns the studio into one big snow globe…it it isn’t heated, its no fun to be in there.  After some very stern language and a good furnace doctor…we are back in business in the studio. 

I took delivery of some new backgrounds recently for another product photography project and realized they work really well for doll photography as well.  The company is called Replica Surfaces.  They are kind of pricey for doll photography but might be worth the investment if you want easy to set up and sturdy.  I am not being compensated at all for this plug.  Just passing on information on a product that I have enjoyed using.

New doll in the studio!!  I recently received Rendez Vous in Rio Poppy Parker from the Mission to Brazil Poppy Parker collection.  The second I got her, I saw her in green.  I had recently seen a stunning Vanity Fair cover of Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o

And I was inspired by a dress by Rimdoll on Etsy.  Here is the product of that inspiration and a newly warm studio.

And because I was having fun with Photoshop, I decided to do some color variations including an early Valentines Day image.  Hope you enjoy.

Thank you all for you patience!  Looking forward to warmer days and a better relationship with my furnace.  I guess you could say we are currently in therapy .Winking smile

Well Hello Miss Ginger!!

The WClub just announced it’s 5th and final club doll for the year and it was an amazing way to end Poppy Parker’s 10th anniversary year.  David Buttry finally released his much anticipated friend ( or is it frenemy) Ginger Gilroy.  He did it in the best way possible…giftsetted with a Poppy. 

©2019 Integrity Toys, Inc.-Poppy&Ginger:Friend or Foe?

Miss Gilroy is scrumptious!!!  A fitting frenemy to our beloved Poppy.  I can’t wait to see what David comes up with for her.  I adore the colors and fashions he chose!  While I have never been a huge fan of a bubble dress or gown, I adore the light blue confection that Ginger has.  The beautiful lavender that adorns Poppy will be welcome when they arrive in the spring of 2020.

I adore the lavishness of the accessories too.  I like that we now have 2 pairs of white hands and long gloves that we can mix and match with our other Poppy’s.  I also appreciated that David gave us two different kinds of wraps…one satin and one fur.  Made for a nice change.  I am loving the spring pastels as well.  This was indeed a fitting way to end out Poppy’s 10th anniversary year.  Well done Mr.Buttry!!

If you are not a WClub member(why not?!), you will not have direct access to this gift set.  It’s a WClub exclusive.  You will need to wait and watch on Ebay next spring.  And if you are not a WClub member…you might want to consider membership which will come up again in February of 2020.  Watch the blog for details.

And because some WClubbers didn’t fee like we had a good look at her face in the original press release ( and I agree with those who asked for more images) the incredibly responsive people at IT provided the image below .  Also, for those of you who might think this is a white outfit…think again.  The general consensus is it is a light powder blue/green.  Yummy!!

This Poppy is on a arched foot body!!!  YASSSSS!  This is my preferred body for Poppy as I hate to photograph the ankle joint.  You can definitely see David Buttry’s direction for the year.  He shared at convention that he was inspired by Kate Spade and I am seeing that in the bright colors and polka dots.  I can’t wait to see what is in store for Poppy this year!

Champagne anyone?

Hello all!!  It seems like a year since my last blog post and in reality…it has been almost 2 months!  Yikes.  First and foremost, I need to send out a belated and public “Thank You!!” to my dear friend and fellow blogger Rogier from Dutch Fashion Doll World for taking over my blog and doing a wonderful job reporting for me while I was at the National Barbie Doll Collector Convention in Houston.  I hope you all enjoyed the posts and images. 

A little bit of an explanation for my absence.  In the months preceding NBDCC, I am typically hyper busy producing miniatures to sell in the convention sales room.  This year, I started extra early and produced about twice the amount I normally do thinking I would have a bunch left over afterwards so that I would have plenty to sell at Integrity Toys convention.  The good part…I sold a LOT more than I expected to at Barbiecon…The bad part…I have had to turn around and start producing again for Integrity Toys.  This has meant little to no time for blogging or photography.  Sorry folks.  Best laid plans and all that went out the window…but it was for a good reason.  I am more pleased than I can say that my minis appeal to you guys.  Thank you for your support.  If I ever have a spare week free..I will set up my etsy site to sell to all.  So far…not happening.  Perhaps after IT convention.  Fingers crossed.

Today, being a day of rest, I chose to have some fun with my camera and my relatively new “First Taste of Champagne” Poppy Parker came to mind.  Hope you enjoy!
