A Dollie Gift from a Dear Friend

Recently I was surprised and very blessed to receive a package in the mail from a dear online friend. To say that I was happy when I saw what was inside the package is an understatement. I might have squealed. lol I'm sharing my gift here today in this post. Please meet Zombilina.

Zombilina doesn't really need to wear glasses, but she loves these
red cat eye glasses with a 50's vibe. She loves what a fashion statement they make. 

 Here Zombilina is not wearing her glasses so you can see what a cute repaint she is. I just love her. 

Her love of dogs is well known among all of her peers at Monster High high school. She has 2 really cute small dogs that she takes practically everywhere with her. Today they are enjoying a wonderful day outside sitting on the patio swing enjoying the sunshine and all of the pretty flowers. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thanks for stopping by.

Gal On The Go Silkstone Barbie

I love silkstone Barbie dolls, and the one I'm sharing today is one of my favorites. Of course, I have many favorites, and some of them I don't even own. I am very blessed and happy to own the one I'm sharing with you today. 

Gal on the Go has a look that is very 50's with her lined cat eye eyes, big red Lucy lips, and the bubble-cut hairstyle that was very popular during that decade. Her fashion is very typical and fashionable as well. I think the 50's is one of my top favorite time periods for fashion and the whole glamorous look that so many women wore. During that time period, women went out dressed to the nines wearing hats, jewelry, gloves, heels, stockings, and a the latest dress, suit, etc. The undergarments were just as important to the whole look as all of the outer garments. Today we have spanks, and then we had girdles. 

It wasn't popular for married women to work outside the home in the 50's , but some women did anyway. I'm thinking Gal on the Go could have been anything during that decade from a secretary to a very glam movie star. Some women were true pioneers that paved the way for every woman from that decade to present time. To me, Gal on the Go represents one of those very forward thinking women, and I'm thrilled to own her so I can share her with you all today. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and so appreciate you stopping by to visit.

Christmas In August???

I know it's summer and hot in so many parts of the world including here in the USA, and Christmas is still some months away, but I just had to share this gorgeous doll. This year marks the 25th anniversary for the Holiday Barbie, and Kmart has their own exclusive doll. This is not the first year they've had their own exclusive Holiday Barbie, but this girl is special because she marks a milestone in our beloved doll's history. she is, and I hope you love her as much as I do. 

In case you are wondering, she is still in her pretty box. I leave all of my Holiday Barbies in the box when I buy them, so I can protect them from dust. I just took her out of the outside box so I could take pictures without that awful glare. It's a bit hard to tell from the picture, but her hair is a pretty reddish brown color. Her gown is so snowy and wintery with snowflakes all over it in white. I think she is perfection with her pretty makeup and shiny soft reddish brown hair. 

As always, I'm sharing a closeup of her gorgeous face. I hope that you all get a chance to find her and see her in person. My pictures really don't do her justice, but I gave it a good try. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog and visiting. I hope you enjoyed this post. Until next time....keep on dollie collecting and playing.
