Countdown to Christmas ...Day 17

Countdown to Christmas continues with Silkstone Saga and our doll of the day today is....  Cocktail Dress Silkstone Barbie  


She is quite the lovely and when she was debuted, sold out quickly. I adore her platinum hair. 

The back of her cocktail dress has a Watteau style lace back that snaps off, so very 50's stylish, with a full lace skirt. It is a beautiful ensemble. 





eNJOY!

Countdown to Christmas...Day 16

Countdown to Christmas continues with our Silkstone Saga. Today's choice is 
Mad Men Joan Holloway Silkstone Barbie   I have all of these dolls, but finding them in the bins were tough.  I really didn't know how many dolls I have/had until I began going through my dollroom and picking out which dolls I was going to photograph for this blogging adventure and planning it. To say I am a doll hoarder is putting it mildly, lol. 



Enjoy!

Countdown to Christmas... Day 15

Countdown to Christmas continues our Silkstone Saga of Dolls with another lovely.... Today's choice is another pink confection. 
Fashionably Floral Barbie Silkstone 

I have never undressed this lovely, though I have been tempted too. She is so delicate, and blonde. I haven't to be honest, found the perfect evening gown or suit to re-dress her in. Someday I will. lol




Enjoy!

Countdown to Christmas...Day 14

Countdown to Christmas continues with our Silkstone Saga of dolls..who is next?

Why not one of my favorites, Preferably Pink Barbie Silkstone , but when she came out, it was my memory she was known as In the Pink. Either way, she is a Chanel confection of perfection. 

Forgive me for forgetting her purse. I was taking a series of photos and had a bunch of dolls together. Stopping to look for accessories would have taken many many moons in the doll room. 




Sigh. Just perfection. I never tire of looking at this doll. 
More tomorrow! Enjoy!

Countdown to Christmas...Day 13

Countdown to Christmas continues with our Silkstone Saga of dolls . Next in our line up is The Artist Barbie doll who came out in 2007 or maybe 2008. I cannot remember it may have been 2009. I do know she was a Japan exclusive. She came out the same year as Shopgirl, who I missed out on and wanted very badly. 

I have always kept this beauty in her outfit. Alot of my silkies are kept in their stock outfits. It's rare that I undress them. 





She's so exquisite. More to come tomorrow!

Countdown to Christmas...Day 12

Countdown to Christmas with Day 12 begins our Silkstone Saga....and once I began to photograph my silkies, I realized I hadn't photographed all of them! LOL. So today I will be catching up on my photos as I missed a few of them. 

I began collecting with one unique doll, Learning to Cook Barbie Repro back in 2005 or 2006, I forget which year, that got me hooked. I will feature her and my first fashion Royalty doll as well. 

One of my earliest Barbie Collector Club dolls that I have is from when Mattel didn't mix their collector dolls and their hot wheels, and their playline dolls together, they had a website with just adult collector dolls called Barbiecollector.com  On this each year with your membership, you got the ability to buy a club doll- remember that? And many times, she was a Silkstone. 

In 2009, I purchased Gal on the Go  Barbie  this is the link to the doll on Mattel's gallery. 

I still have her glasses and purse, tucked away. But here is my photoshoot of her. 





More Silkstones to come!

Countdown to Christmas ...Day 11

Countdown to Christmas continues today with Angel of Joy Barbie 1998 Collector's Edition. 

This was my first Angel Barbie I purchased, I think I purchased her off of ebay very inexpensively, out of the box. I have used her in my 1:6 scale nativity. 






Here she is decorating the mantel with my other Angel Barbie and Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother. The lotus blossums have tealights that are lit up at night. 
Tomorrow we begin the Silkstone saga! Enjoy!
