2017 Blog Giveaway #3

So are you ready for the 3rd item in this Giveaway???? I think this is one you will really like (at least I hope so!). 

To introduce this Giveaway, I have once again enlisted the help of some of the newer residents of Hanaly Corners.

On the left, we have the 2016 Happy Birthday Hispanic Barbie and on the right is the 2017 Quinceanera Barbie. Happy Birthday Barbie: "Hello everybody! Happy to see you visiting our blog! We have been asked to help introduce the next item in the Giveway!"  
Quinceanera Barbie: "We are actually very excited to have been chosen to do this introduction! We think you will really like this one!"

Happy Birthday Barbie: "And here she is! 2015 The Barbie Look City Shine AA Pink Dress!"
Quinceanera Barbie: "Oh she is so pretty! She would make a great addition to anybody's collection!"

Quinceanera Barbie: "Here is a closer look at her beautiful face!"

Happy Birthday Barbie: "And, because we know how much most of our blog followers and friends like articulated bodies, this SIS Baby Phat Grace body in a Yellow Top MTM outfit is included."
Quinceanera Barbie: "So you can see what a good match this body is, we have asked Grace, who was the original recipient of the Baby Phat Grace Body to join us."
Grace: "Hi! I have gone thru a couple of body exchanges now. I recently was swapped to the fabulous MTM Yellow Top body, so that made my Baby Phat Grace body available. I am standing next to the human's Barbie Look City Shine AA Pink Dress doll so you can see what a good skintone match we are! Note, I had taken very good care of the Baby Phat Body while I had it, so it is in excellent condition!"
City Shine: "Here is a closer look so you can see how good the match is! BTW, I have the Pazette face, which I hope you will agree is a beautiful face!
Quinceanera Barbie: "The rules are the same as before and are listed below."

Winner for 2017 Blog Giveaway #2

Yes, we have a winner! No, I did not forget about this Giveaway, but my house has been in a state of disarray for a while and I am finally getting things put back together! Just so you know, I had been planning on painting the interior of my house for a while now, but things like needing a new furnace and my painter's busy schedule kept setting us back from getting it done. So, when he called me to say he had a window open to get it done, I jumped at the chance. Here is what it looked like for a while:

What you don't see is all of the stuff we had to move to other rooms ahead of time. My bedroom was stuffed to the gills and I felt like I was the subject of an episode of "Hoarding, Buried Alive"! But the painting is now finished and we are getting very close to having everything rearranged and put back together. And, of course, this included shopping for some new stuff and getting rid of some old stuff too! When It is done, I will share some photos.

Since I didn't want to delay this any further, I wanted to go ahead and announce the winner of the 2nd Giveaway item. Note that there are still 2 more items to be given away and I will get both of those items posted shortly (sometime this weekend, maybe even this afternoon!)

Without further delay, the winner is   . . . . .

Congratulations, AG Lanc! Just in case you forgot, you won the Lammily Boy Doll (Animal Rescuer).  Please send me an email with your shipping information and I will get this guy out to you ASAP! My email is
