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.

Isn’t It Romantic Poppy Parker as Sabrina…Take 2

So I just couldn’t leave this one alone.  While I was photographing the original set, I was inspired by another photo and had to do that one too…

And what I came up with….

Isn’t It Romantic:Poppy Parker as Sabrina

When I first saw these dolls unveiled at IDEX this past January, I was beside myself with anticipation.  I was just itching to see the real life product and hoping that they would all be as good as their promo photos.  I was not disappointed.  I knew I had to pay tribute to the original black and white movie photos and here is what I came up with.  Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed shooting this one.

The original promo shot from the movie that inspired me….








Okay all you pinners on Pintrest….Please, Please, Please DO NOT pin photos form the photo album below unless you are willing to manually change the link to the blog instead of my skydrive.  If you just pin it from the album ( yes, I realize it is way easier), it will link back to my skydrive and not my blog….Not Cool.  Since I mentioned this before, people have been really good about it.  If it comes up as a problem again though I will cease putting in albums completely.

IDEX Integrity Toys Reveal–Poppy Parker as Sabrina!

Today Integrity Toys revealed a small portion of their 2012 lineup and all I can say is WOWZA!

I guess my biggest squeal moment was the announcement that they will be doing Poppy Parker™ as Sabrina®.  This is an iconic fashion movie that put Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy on the fashion map.  You will see that Givenchy is never credited in the Sabrina movie as the designer of Ms. Hepburn’s exquisite wardrobe.  Edith Head went on to receive the Oscar for this movie even though she did not design the female leads wardrobe.  Let’s face it folks…it’s Sabrina’s wardrobe and the gamine eyes of Audrey Hepburn that carry that movie. I have tremendous respect for Ms. Head’s work but I never understood her willingness to accept the award for that movie.  Not right.   Most accounts state that Monsieur Givenchy was always an extreme gentleman about the whole thing and I guess in the long run…everyone knew those designs were his and not Ms. Heads work so the true credit went to the true owner.  He should have received the award though.  Monsieur Givenchy went on to work with Ms. Hepburn in Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Integrity Toys designer David Buttry did the most amazing job in my opinion of bringing these to the 1/6 scale arena.

So sweet!  Love the attention to detail in this giftset.  I love the fact that Mr Buttry included the cooking smock with this set.  Brilliant!


As a fan of the movie and an avid collector of Poppy Parker, this entire series is an absolute slam dunk for me.  Mr Buttry…my happy collector heart is full and my sad collector wallet will be empty….. thanks to you.

If you are interested in any of these lovely ladies, I suggest emailing your Integrity Toys dealer ASAP.  These won’t last long.  More to come form Integrity Toy’s IDEX reveal in a few hours.  Winking smile
