The End & New Beginnings

I hope everyone's holidays were great. I spent my 1st day of the new year doing absolutely nothing..LOL. I watched a couple of marathons on TV. They had some of my favorites playing so I had a choice of The Honeymooners, The Twilight Zone, & The Odd Couple. Love Ralph Kramden..bang, zoom, to the moon. I can talk TV all day long :O) . 

The last day of the year bought me Main Attitude Adele. I love everything about her except her face..hmmm. I do have two other ladies with this new facemold but Main Attitude would be dead last for me. I'm hoping I can get her tweaked somewhere along the new year. She is the first of the new facemold to have the straight black hair. Maybe it's the side glancing eyes. She takes great pics but she's off for me IRL. I know she is getting a lot of love from others but you can't win them all. Check out her awesome accessories. Love the shoes, purse, jewelry, & the outfit.
 


I also have another new lady technically bought in 2012 but she arrives sometime this week. I still consider her a 2012 goody. I do have a 1st lady for 2013 but she will remain a mystery until she arrives. Two mystery ladies remain to enter the vinyl community. 

I've made no resolutions this year except to really limit the amount of dolls coming in. Me saying I will stick to 10 dolls is crazy. That will never happen. I picked up 10+ dolls at The Fashion Royalty Convention alone. I don't set limits but I think Fashion Royalty will be my main focus. I believe I can limit myself to less than 10 Barbie's. There have been no Barbie's that I feel I missed out on in 2012. All the hyped up dolls were boring to me. I didn't like the finished product on a few dolls that sold out.

Stay tuned for my upcoming sales announcement. There are a lot of dolls being voted off the island. Consider this my New Year Clearance Sale. Time for some to be loved in their new homes :O)

  1. This is my first time seeing this particular version of Adele. She uh, kinda looks like she smelled something she didn't like. o.0

    Her styling though is quite awesome.

  2. Happy New Year Anika!

    I feel exactly how you feel about her. She photographs very well, but her appearance is just so so (in my opinion) in real life. I plan to keep her so I am hoping that she will grow on me. Looking forward to seeing your new dollies.

  3. OMG!! Main Attitude Adele is one of my next purchase for the 2013!! She so awesome!! Lucky you!! I limited the number of barbies too, here we have tons and tons of blonde caucasians barbies and a very few minority of Nikki, Teresa and Raquelle. Boring!!! I can't wait for your New Year Clearance Sale :)
    Happy New Year Anika!!

    1. Hi Marta, thank you for the compliment. I'm trying to get really choosy with the dolls I get. It took me some time to get here :O)

  5. So does this mean Main Attitude Adele is one of the dolls being 'voted off the island'. Can't wait to see who ends up on the sale page. It will also be interesting to see what dolls are added to your collection this year although none of us will be keeping count to see if you keep your resolution.

    1. She's not voted off...yet. I say that only because I will let her hang around for a moment. I think I will try to get that tweak and see how I feel from there.

      Hey I said no resolutions this year LOL

  6. Oh oh ... well, sometimes dolls don't *click* for us. Or sometimes we have to tweak them. I have a Hasbro Kristin, Maxie's friend, who I either need to tweak or to sell. Sigh.

    Still ... sharp fashions. You know how to pick the winners ;-D

    1. Thanks Dana. I have a few ladies from the Big M that missed the mark for me. I kept them for some strange reason but now I'm letting them go to someone else.

  7. My favorite Adele with this sculpt is SC Adele. I personally believe that both MA & ME photograph better than they look in real life. I am really thinking about changing the lip color on both. Either way I love both so they are permanent residents on my island.

  8. She does look like she has an "attitude" but she is gorgeous.
