Tuesday Around the Doll World - 9/29

Hello Everyone!

Posting a little late tonight, it's been a BUSY day!!

Here are the dolly news items that I found for this week!

Barbie is getting a new store in the Mall of America. The store will be opening in October2009 and is expected to stay open until March 2010! Maybe I'll make it there before it closes!!

Barbie - Mall of America

What's the hoopla about??? People have suddenly started making a fuss over Gwen, one of the 2009 American Girl dolls. It turns out Gwen and her mother are homeless after being abandoned by her father. The public outcry is because not only is AG charging $95 for this doll, none of the money is going to HELP the homeless? What are your thoughts on this doll and her story? American Girl Gwen Thompson

Speaking of costly dolls, you HAVE to check out the new BJD's that have been released for the Angelic Dreamz store! They are HOT!!

Jamieshow Dolls

I dont' see one making it into my collection anytime soon but they sure are yummy!

It's party time at Toys R Us!! They are having a Moxie Girl Party this Saturday from 12-2! Lots of fun games and giveaways. If you haven't seen the Moxie girls check my earlier post to see Sasha! you can see them all on their own cool website too: Moxie Girlz When you buy a doll, you get a secret code for the website, lots of fun and hours of entertainment I'm sure!

That's all for this week folks! Be blessed and I'll see you next week!!

Tuesday Around the Doll World - 9/22

Hello everyone!

I'm going to share with you some news from around the doll world!

I'm really loving the new Moxie Girls by MGA. They are cute and not sleazy like the Bratz dolls. I like their trendy outfits and the fun themes. This is my Jammaz Sasha. Isn't she gorgeous?

Here she is up close, I just love her features.

Here she is with all of her goodies!

There's even a little inspirational hang tag and the back of the box has a positive message for girls.  Did I say I really like these dolls???

I read here that Avon will be introducing a new line of 18" Madame Alexander dolls, they are really cute!

Just in case you were wondering, Yes they do fit Emily Rose clothes!!

Lastly, Toys R Us is having a sale this week on their barbies and princess dolls.  Buy 2 get 1 free, no coupon needed!  It's an offer I can't refuse!

Have a blessed week!

Monday Outfit of the Week!

Whew! It's so nice to be back and blogging again. I missed it but just didn't seem to have the time and/or patience to do good posts. But we are back now and hopefully we'll stay on schedule!

Now for the outfit of the week. I have to say I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it. It's a beautiful pink satin gown with a lace overlay. The overlay has such gorgeous flowers embroidered into it! Anyway, they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here is Ginger modeling the embroidered bow dress

Isn't it gorgeous. Ginger looks like she's going to a party or a prom! Here's a close up of the beautiful detail!

And the back view with the gorgeous sash!

I matched this dress up with these adorable pink bow shoes!

dress 2

I know you will love this dress as much as I do! Oh and it washes really easy, we had an incident with red juice. I washed it in cold water with a touch of dish detergent, rinsed it really well and laid it flat to dry. No sign of the juice!!

Have a blessed day!

We're back!

Whew! The first few weeks of school knocked us for a loop! I thought I was prepared but I guess not! Anyhow, I will be posting the outfit of the week shortly and we should be on track for this week. I'm also going to post a question that I would love to have your input on!

Friday's Inspiration

This week I thought this was the appropriate day to share inspiration. In the face of trial, in times of challenge, in the midst of our sorrow, it serves well to remember...

Our God reigns over the heavens
Over the earth, Our God reigns
Praise His name, All still standing
All that was, all that remains
Our God reigns

From the song Our God Reigns by Brandon Heath

Outfit of the week 9/7 - Pink Camo PJ's

Hi everyone,

The reason this is late is because I had a very hard time waking up my sleepy-head Addy!! But here she is in her Camo Pink PJ's. Her favorite PJ set also includes a sweet Teddy Bear!

Pink Camo is not your thing? How about Pink Leopard PJ's! Your doll will feel like she's sleeping in luxury with these great PJ's!

These Satiny PJ's have the most adorable matching robe!

If you are looking for a sweet sleep, how about the Tank Heart PJ's covered in tiny hearts!

Of course there are many more beautiful PJ outfits at our website store!

Tuesday Around the Doll World - 9/8

Okay I know this is a day late but I'm trying to get back on track!

When you are a doll collector, I think it is important to understand a history of dolls. That is one of the main reasons I joined a local doll club, I wanted to find out more about the types of dolls I collect as well as other historically important facts about dolls in general. That's why I was so excited when I found Elizabeth Almeida. Her in depth articles are so wonderfully written and full of information. Set aside some time and read some of her articles. You won't be disappointed:

NY Doll Collecting Examiner

Another examiner writer highlighted the Pottery Barn 50th Anniversary barbies. They are so cute!


Check out the article here.

That's all the collecting news I have for this week, I hope you enjoyed!

Thursday Inspiration (a day late)

I was doing some reading this morning and I came across this quote:

" How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all those."
George Washington Carver

Definitely words to consider!!

Hello everyone,

It was the first day of school today so I'm running a little behind!!

First I have the beautiful Passion, "daughter" of Debbie Garrett. She's modeling the beautiful Butterfly Skirt and Vest which is available in our Emily Rose store.

Isn't she the cutest!!

Next we have the newest on the Barbie Scene. Barbie is introducing what they call the Fashionista line. These funky fresh dolls even have their own video!! Don't you want to learn to do the Barbie???

The Barbie® Official Music Video 2009
(thanks to Vanessa for the head's up!)

Very interesting video for sure. The dolls are kind of cute, check out the Chicago Toy Examiner for detailed info!

You know with school starting, our 18 inch girls need to look their best. Check out the Doll*Clothes Patterns for simple instructions on making your girls the most adorable headbands!! I think even I can make these! LOL!

Last but not least, I came across this ADORABLE book and doll set at Dollmaker's Delight This is a perfect set for a little one just getting introduced to dolls!
