Birthday Haul

Sunday, July 13 was my birthday. My daughters made it a very special day for me by taking me out to eat, taking me shopping, buying me flowers and making a birthday cake. Previously, we had also gone to Frankenmuth, MI to a store called Bronner's where they have awesome Christmas ornaments. I also had made some previous purchases that I will now share with you all.

First, here are the flowers from my girls.


At Bronner's, I got some Christmas ornaments that are great 1:6 scale items. These included some musical instruments and some dogs.





Now let me show you my doll purchases.  This first group is what I had purchased earlier from ebay and Barbie Collector.

Here are the latest Dynamite boys that I got from Ebay. They were purchased nude and I dressed them in Ken clothes and Clear Lan clothes.




From Barbie Collector, I got Fan Bing Bing and the Redhead Barbie Look Red Carpet doll.  From a doll dealer, I got the Asian Barbie Look Red Carpet doll and the Jazz Baby doll.


Scarlett and Rhett were from Barbie Collector.



Of course, I rebodied all of the ladies except for Jazz Baby as she already had an articulated body.  The Barbie Look dolls were rebodied on Elvis Barbie bodies I got on clearance from TRU.  Fan Bing Bing was rebodied on a Dynamite Girls Spooky Sookie body and Scarlett received a Raquelle Glam Luxe body. 

When my daughter took me out birthday shopping, I got a Teen Belle, Teen Dorothy and a Pirate Fairy doll. 



The Teen Belle doll and Pirate Fairy doll both have articulation at the elbows, wrists and knees. However, the Dorothy doll did not have articulation.  I rebodied Dorothy on a Liv body I had in stock.  I took the braids out of her hair and Belle's hair. Hmmm. Don't you think they look kind of like sisters??




A couple of the dolls have agreed to demonstrate the musical instruments and dogs so you can see them for scale.









Well, that is it for now.  Quite a haul, don't you think?!

  3. Happy belated birthday! The ornaments are awesome. My favorite thing of all is that on this shopping trip the daughters were purchasing dolls for Mom when it's usually the other way around.

  4. Thanks for the nice email. I was unable to email you back directly because I couldn't find an email address. I am your latest follower and hope you will follow my doll blog as well at http://www.thebarbiechronicles.blogspot.com
    I can't believe you got those fabulous instruments at Bronner's. They are only about 20 minutes from my driveway! I might even make a trip there later today and if not absolutely will next week. Since we live so close let's keep in touch. A doll lover and a sewer...what more could you ask for? Maybe we can even have a "dolly meet-up" in the future!
