Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday was my birthday.  Yay!  Nothing like an excuse to buy more dolls.  Considering I gave away seven dolls and have recently put a few up for sale, what's one more doll?

This box arrived yesterday and I was so excited.  I opened it up and .....

It's Morocco.  Not what I was expecting.  LOL!  I kind of forgot I ordered her, but I had to use my Barbie Collector coupon and I picked her.

She's a very pretty doll with a very nice outfit. One of our Targets is selling the Fashionista dolls for $8.89, so she now has a body waiting to connect with her.

Here she is with her hair out.  I think I will give her some nice curls

Today, the doll arrived that I was waiting for.

And here she is!  Sweet in Switzerland.  Someone must have changed their mind on buying her, because I got an email saying she was back in stock and I jumped on it.  

Her dress is a beautifully made one-piece.  The belt is separate.

She comes with a blue, lined cape with a muff and hat.

She also comes with a nice pair of ice skates.

  1. Happy belated birthday! Nothings sweeter than getting some dolls for your birthday (and a great excuse to get them too)! That Morroco Barbie has one of the better Lara faces I've seen, and I feel like your going to get overun with more Poppy girls soon...

    1. Verona - Thanks. My wallet won't allow me to get overrun with Poppys. I now have three. I'm not saying there won't be another one in the future, but we won't be overrun.

    1. limbe dolls - Thanks. Aren't those little skates, cute? They did a nice job on those. I wish I had a few more pair. I could then justify making that ice rink.

  9. Happy birthday Vanessa. (Seems like there are a lot of doll collectors with birthdays in July.) Your dolls look lovely - the Barbie has a very pretty face and it's great that they can both be called birthday presents.

    Sweet in Switzerland looks quite serious, maybe she had a rough trip over.

    1. Joy Tig - Thanks. Sweet in Switzerland was in all that cold weather that's probably why she looks like that. Hopefully she'll warm up and we'll get to see a little smile

  11. Looks like you had a wonderful birthday! The dolls look beautiful. I really like Miss Morocco. Will you be collecting all the Poppy dolls now for Morristown? I'm going to Target in Athens today. Say a prayer for my poor bank account! LOL :-)

    1. Cindi - Dolls always makes a day better. Collecting all the Poppy dolls? ROFL! Only if I win the lottery. If you are talking about the five in this series, the answer is no. I may get India if she comes to me for retail, like this one did. Don't spend too much money!

  13. Happy birthday! I am so jealous of that Poppy! I really wanted her and Japan. Speaking of the DOTW Barbies, have you seen the new United Kingdom one? Her outfit rocks!

    1. Connor Lucas - Thanks. I wasn't sure about this Poppy until after she came out. In the past the hair for the red head was totally different from the promo pics. This one was spot on. I love the United Kingdom outfit. I have two similar trench coats, so I couldn't justify spending that money just for the scarf.

  19. Happy Birthday Vanessa! Late, yes. Glad to hear that you had a good one, and yes, dolls do make that special day even more special.

    I'll be celebrating my birthday all July, too, lol. Only I will be deboxing and selling. Long overdue on the latter ;-D

    1. D7ana - Thanks! That's right, we are both July babies. Maybe we can inspire each other to sell more dolls. I have another box of dolls ready to go out the door. It's a great feeling.

  20. Beautiful!!! Please make sure you continue with her!! I've been waiting to see her after you mentioned her. Happy birthday!!!My brother ended up getting me the one from Spain instead of Mexico but she's just as beautiful, her stock photos don't do her justice. ;-)

    Love,

  24. Happy Birthday!!! (our birthdays are so close!)

    Hehehe, I see you've been bitten by a Poppy bug... now you'll have to collect one in every hair color and skin tone... it's practically mandatory, hehehe!!

    1. Heather - Thanks. I've learned there are lots of July doll people. I think I can be happy with these three Poppys. I added Switzerland because I got her retail, she has red hair, and she's looking forward. Next one to add is Darla.
