Lavender Luxury

Easter weekend is upon us and everything is coming to life in the garden again.  The trees  are all blooming pink and white, the daffodils are up and the lilacs are on the way.  Life is good.  With this symphony of pastels booming in the yard, I had to do something in the studio to celebrate it.  I had the perfect model in mind too.  Recently, I sent the lavender haired Mood Changer Poppy Parker head over to Jon Copeland-Childers for a “spa” treatment and what he sent back to me had my jaw dropping.

There are spa treatments and then there are Jon treatments.  I stand by the Jon treatment.

**Note** Before I get a gazillion questions, I have to declare here that the luggage I used is not OOAK.  It is the set from the Poppy Parker Sabrina series but I have photo shopped the trim to lavender.

This suit is a favorite of mine.  It is from the IT 2013 Premier Convention Collection.  I was searching through some Edith Head sketches a couple months back and stumbled across what might have been the inspiration for this one.

You’ve Got a Friend

I have a friend who is going through a hard time right now.  I always say that one of if not the most amazing things about the collecting community is its strength and ability to support its members.  This friend is a doll collector and in the midst of the gauntlet she is walking right now, she still thought of others and helped out a few collector friends this week.  Her grace and strength humbles me.  My friend…this one is for you.

Integrity Toys “The Premiere” Convention Day 1 Part II

The Convention Collection

This year, Integrity tried out something different for the sales room.  They gave you a number based on when you signed up for convention.  Those who signed up early, received a lower number and this allowed you to get into the sales room at specific times.  It was done to cut down on the HUGE wait line that conventioneers had experienced in years past.  Groups of about 50 were allowed in at a time depending on your registration number.  It worked like a dream.  I have to say it was the most pleasant shopping experience I have at in IT’s convention sales room.  You had room to browse, take pictures and buy.  Fabulous job Integrity Toys! 


The Convention Collection was showcased in the center of the room.

Soooo sophisticated and haughty.  Isn’t this Agnes’ general state of being?  When I first saw her displayed in the sales room, she had the sunglasses on and I could not see her face so I was not impressed…


Then the glasses came off and I was a goner.

Loved, loved the pink top on this one.  This was also a much softer look for Ms. Adele.

Oh My Word!!  I love suits and I absolutely adored this one.  Put an exotic looking Veronique with a hat  in it and it’s a winner in my book.

In my opinion, this lady embodied the theme of the convention collection the most.  She is pure Hollywood premiere glamour.  Adore her.

{Thud!}  Someone help Rebecca up off the floor again.  I don’t think I could get my ticket out of my wallet fast enough to purchase this beauty.  If you wanted a glamorous Poppy, this one will do it.

There were also a few Integrity Toys Direct products unveiled that were exclusive to the convention.  Each conventioneer was given coupons to purchase 3 or 4 items from the line.  The choices were:

A Fashion Royalty Shoe Pack
