ITFDS is finally back online!!

Hello loyal readers.  First off..I have to say I am sorry.  I had every intention of posting every Friday but did not factor in how unreliable my Wi-Fi would be while traveling.  In retrospect, I should have hung my “Gone Fishing” sign up and left it at that.  Live, Learn.  Happily I was able to post travel photos to my Flickr while we traveled ( it was a slow and painful process though) so for those who followed along on that, I am happy you enjoyed them.  Thank you for all your comments!  They were much appreciated.

We had the most amazing time journeying through Europe and my mind is absolutely bursting with new diorama ideas.  I will be working on those in the coming months along with some new doll related business ventures ( more info to come….).  For now, I will post some of the photos I had lined up to share while I was traveling.

Poppy Parker At The 1965 International Fair!

This past Saturday marked another goodie filled webinar from the talented folks at Integrity Toys.  At this event,  David Buttry unveiled a 5 doll Poppy Parker collection that evoked a “Dolls of the World” feel.  While I am not necessarily a dolls of the world collector in Barbieland…in Poppyland, stamp my passport and call me a happy camper.  You will see why. Smile

Holy Sonja Henie Batman!!  She has flippin’ ice skates??!!  I think this was the first words that flew out of my mouth when I saw her photo…” Look at the ice skates!!”.  I ADORE THEM!   She has the Japan skin tone and shares, according to Mr. Buttry, the facial screening of Photo Fab.  The fact that she is a redhead and all the exquisite details on this one ( flippin’ pom poms on the hat I tell you…pom poms!!) Sweet in Switzerland will be sweeter in the doll room come June.

Somebody bring me a Mai Tai!!  I have to say I am absolutely thrilled with this one.  My family and I vacation in Hawaii every other year and Miss Poppy looks like she would be right at home on the beaches of Kauai…right down to the flower in her ear which is appropriately placed over her right ear to signify she is single.  The sarong is removable to show a fun one piece underneath.  Lots of pieces to mix and match on this one.  The beaded necklace is, according to the webinar, one of the most intricate they have done.  Poppy is sporting original Poppy Parker facial screening here with applied lashes.  She has sweet and sultry brown eyes that have not been done before according to Mr. Buttry.  She has the same skin tone as Hot Dots…so a bit of a tan…as one would expect in the tropics.

Traveling west across the international date line, we end our international Poppy journey in…Japan.

Wowzers!  The facial screening on this lovely lady is new for this year just like Miss Spain.  She has..of course..the Japan skin tone and a stunning pair of violet eyes.  Joyful in Japan..not as joyful as I will be when June gets here and all these Poppy’s arrive.  It will be Christmas in June for sure inside the fashion doll studio.

As a whole, I have to say I am very happy with this Poppy offering from Mr. Buttry and Integrity.  I am most happy with the low price point on these beauties and the higher edition size that will hopefully allow most if not all who want these a chance at them.  Given that, if you are interested in any of these, you should contact a dealer ASAP.  The supply of these dolls will not last long.

**I was just informed by my fabulous dealer Barb that she has some Joyful in Japan left so feel free to contact her through http://www.windycitydolls.com/**
