Last Dolls of 2015 and Blog Giveaway # 1 Announcement

I hope you all remember that I promised to do a blog giveaway soon after the start of the new year. So here I am announcing my first blog giveaway! I am hoping I can make this an annual event. I decided to follow the example of Brini of Brini's Doll Domain and have a series of items to give away. There will be 4 different giveaways. This is the first. I also decided to have the last dolls of 2015 introduce themselves and announce each giveaway. 


"Hi all, we are some of the new residents of Hanaly Corners that were added late in 2015. From left to right, we are Carly Lager, Millie Robertson and Shula Washington. Some of you may recognize us as the 2015 Barbie Look dolls introduced by Mattel in the last quarter of 2015. We do not know what our roles are yet in Hanaly Corners or even if we have other family members here, but we have been enlisted to announce Blog Giveaway #1."
Millie: "These adorable accessory packs are for the first Giveaway."
Carly: "Are you sure we have to give these away? They are so cute, especially those black gladiator sandles!"
Shula: "Those are for flat footed dolls, not for our type of feet!"
Millie: "Here is a closer look at the items for this Giveaway."

Shula:  "Here are the rules for the Giveaway:

  • You need to be a follower of this blog to enter.
  • You can only enter one time for each Giveaway.
  • You will have one week to enter.

Good Luck!

  6. Great giveway! Count me in as well. I looooove Sweet Tea. I had her in my "cart" and then resisted as I M trying to be good with my doll budget this year! Is that the same body she came with or did you do a body swap??

    1. Thanks for joining my giveaway. I wish you luck! Sweet Tea is on her original body. It appears that Mattel has finally listened to us about articulation. Let's see how they do in the future!

  7. Your new residents are lovely and I hope they settle in and find their own places very quickly. As for the giveaway, thank for it but postage to Australia is not cheap so I will leave it up to you as to whether to include me or not - whatever you decide is fine with me.

  9. I just wanted to say how lovely your new dolls are. Did you have to rebody any of them? I already have one of these packs, so I will allow someone else to get these nice gifts.

    1. Thanks Vanessa! Nope, they are all on their original bodies. They have articulation in all the usual places plus elbows, wrists and knees. Not at ankles or chest.

    1. Shula is the name of my new hair dresser. I just love her name too and she kind of reminds me of this doll. I think she will be a hairdresser in Hanaly Corners too!
