It's All About the Handbag
Even in the doll world, a great accessory can make all the difference. I received three gorgeous handbags in the mail last week. And I'm still smiling.
Left to right: Coach handbag and glasses, Snakeskin purse handmade by Kate at BarbieDream.blogspot.com, and Greenish gray snakeskin bag by our friend Jewelsnake. Jewelsnake is a frequent commenter on my blog. A couple of months ago, I helped facilitate an ebay sale for her. She lives in Poland and the Ebay seller didn't ship internationally. Since Jewelsnake had purchased one of my dolls, that was due to ship out, she wondered if I would bid on the Ebay doll and ship the two at the same time. I said sure. She wanted to send me a gift for helping out. Of course, I said that wasn't necessary. Last week, the two snakeskin bags arrived from Poland as my thank you! Talk about surprised. The greenish/grayish snakeskin bag was her first attempt at making a handbag. I think she did a fabulous job. Thanks again, Jewelsnake! As for the brown snakeskin bag, I had left a comment on Kate's blog about how much I liked that bag. Jewelsnake saw that comment, and that's how she got the idea to gift it to me. Again I say, doll people are the greatest! All three of these handbags are headed to Ni'Chalet's.
Look who got a new body. It's only temporary because it's not the best color match. She was supposed to stay boxed until I finished organizing the basement. Heck that basement may never get completely organized.
With all the rain we've been having in Georgia, the past two months, I feel it's the perfect time to show this lady.
This trench coat is even more fabulous than I first thought.
It has amazing details. Here I'm showing how the sleeves are sewn at the elbow. The wrist details are great, too.
The skirt is ultrasuede with a really nice waistband and closes in the front with two snaps. This is a smaller skirt, and will not properly fit all body types.
The knit top is cute and closes with velcro.
Coach Barbie takes a rest as Karla shows the other two bags.
It's a nice large handbag that opens and closes with a snap.
It's has a shoulder strap and handles.
The greenish/gray handbag is almost an exact replica of the brown bag.
Here the two ladies are taking a rest. One thing about the Coach shoes. Even though they are plastic, I really like them. They are very soft and able to fit different doll feet because of their pliability.
New food items will be hitting the Etsy store soon. Here's a little preview.
A marble chocolate cake with almond slivers.
Chocolate marble ice cream with almonds on a waffle cone.
Similar to turtle ice cream, but instead of chocolate chunks, it has almonds.
