New Action Figure At Toys R Us!

Hey Gang!

I wanted to share with you and action figure that I just found at Toys R Us.
I have taken this pictures and posted to my blog with my new tablet!
It takes better pictures than my old table.  I might not need to carry
my camera with me everywhere!

So here he is!  He is the Blue Box Duck Hunter.  He is an excellent find!

Here is a close up on his face!  He comes with some great accessories too.
Ducks he caught!
and decoy ducks.
He has a great dog friend hunting dog!
A rifle. 
A real and an action figure size duck call and binocular.
Now guess how much?
Can you believe it!
So I bought him!  I'll post pictures out of the box later!
Speaking of the box, they make more action figures but I only saw this one there.
Here are pictures of the others listed on the box.
Mine!
Deer Hunter!
Bear Hunter!
Fisherman!
Turkey Hunter!


I suggest you get yourself out to TRU! By the way, I found this video review
of him too! So I will make this a video of the month too.



OK, Thanks, For Looking!

Something New For Nola!

Hey Gang!

One of my first purchase for the new year was pants for my Nola (Big and
Beautiful Dasia). Guess who I purchased them from?  That's right!
Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures.  She is selling very nice Dasia  clothes.
So if your Dasia needs clothes, check her out!

I purchased the beige hound's tooth pants and the palazzo pants! First let me say
that I am a big fan of palazzo pants.  There are a few in my wardrobe!  So to
have my dolls wear something that I enjoy wearing is a plus!

The pants are navy blue with a pink pinstripe!  The perfect combination of masculine and
feminine!
 She pairs it with a pink sweater.  
It is her pink for the love of her live Macy's cancer sweater.  
I removed the patch.

The pants are really well made!
 Seams are serged! 
 Here she is in her hound's tooth pants!
 They are a slimmer fit.  I paired them with a white shirt and a peach sweater/jacket!
 She sometimes adds a hat!

I still need shoes for Nola.  She needs brown and black pumps.  Any suggestions?

BTW, there are many accepted names and spellings for hound's tooth.

I Won The Giveaway!

Hey Gang,


I won a giveaway!  I won the giveaway from Phyllis of A Day In The 
Life Of My Dolls. I won an AA Made To Move Barbie. Woo Hoo! 
I received my Made To Move doll a during the weeks I was preparing
for the Flower Show, so I didn’t get a chance to post her. She also arrived 
before I had seen this doll in my area and that made her more of a treat. 
  

So thank you Phyllis!

I know many of you already have her and have posted pictures of her 
posing in all her different positions, so I would not. What I would like
 to say about her outfit and the outfit of the rest of the dolls in the line is 
that they didn’t go overboard with the pink.

That is nice for a change.  It is also a well made outfit too.  

I think they did a great job on the hair color also.  It is nicely bronzed.


This doll has a little slim figure….a more athletic looking body than other 
Barbie.   She has a smaller bust while having a fuller wait and thinner hips.  
So, I guess yoga fits.  She feels like a dancer!

I have decided that she will now play the part of Lisa Laurent, one of the 
fraternal twins.  

Keisha and Lisa
New Keisha and old Keisha in swimsuits.  

I like the calmer makeup of the new Keisha.  The new Keisha is a Asha head-sculpt
while the old Keisha was a Shani head-sculpt. Sadly, the Shani head-sculpt is still
under used.

I think my new Keisha will be a dancer!  She embodies the grace of movement of
her mother and

grandmother. 
I think she will need to dance with her mother!
I think now I will display my Shani dolls in their outfits sometime soon.

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Hey, I'm Back!

Hey Gang!

It is probably wrong to say I'm back when I didn't say that I've gone away.
Many of you know that I am normally busy at the Phila. Flower Show
and I was again this year.  I was there the whole 10 days of the show.  There
is no one to cover me at work.  I have get as much done befor the show as I
can and do a ton when I come back.

 This year's theme was Explore America.  It was a celebration of 100 years of the
National Parks.
This is the entrance of the show. 
My husband and I sat at the Phila. Cactus and Succulent Society booth.
Baby at the booth!
 Photos of the booth.
The booth is educational and we answered questions about cactus and succulents
More pictures.
We had over 100 examples of plants for people to see and as questions about.
We have info booklets to sell and info on are meetings.
 I saw this girl with these skates on while I was there.
 Baby and the buffalo.
 This stuff animal was there too!
The individual competition takes place in  The Hamilton Horticourt. 
 Orchids 
There are always a ton of beautiful orchids there to see.
People love taking picture of the show.
I took some close-ups of some of the flowers.

I think I might get into orchids this year!
Amoung the orchids I found this flower too!
Martha Stewart
I talked to her too!
 I won some ribbons.  Here are two.


 More pictures of  Hamilton Horticourt.
