So, my brother tagged me for the ice bucket challenge.
Poppy took one for the team…
Ice Bucket Challenge
Today’s model is In the Air Poppy Parker from the Jet Set convention. She’s wearing an older Barbie swimsuit (maybe from the early nineties?). I’m pretty sure the bucket is from Mattel, but I’m not positive since I scored it at a flea market. The bench is a fabulous flea market find as well. Poppy’s photo was taken today in our front yard.
Always Up For A Challenge

The beach is fun, but the boardwalk is not to be missed. It’s half the fun during a day down the shore.
Same doll, same place, a change of clothes…
Lunch at the Tiki Bar
A Little SkeeBall
Playing the Wheel – Trying to Win a Prize
Taking in the Sights
Today’s model is Look of Love Poppy Parker, rerooted and with a lip repaint. Poppy is wearing Summer Games Poppy’s sunhat, a dress from an older Barbie fashion pack, an Integrity Toys ruffled slip and Holiday in the Hamptons Poppy’s sneakers. Her photos were taken on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
You Won’t Get Bored On The Boardwalk

There are few things I enjoy more than draggin’ a dollie and a camera down to the beach. Since hubby was on vacation a couple of weeks ago, you just knew it was gonna happen. Now I’ve got a smile as bright as the summer sun. Here are some of the results from our sand and surf shoot…
Back To The Beach
Toes In The Sand
Listen To The Sounds Of The Surf
Take A Walk On The Beach
Listen To The Waves
Today’s model is a Look of Love Poppy Parker doll that has been rerooted and had her lips repainted. She’s one of my favorites and such a summer ‘go to’ gal. She was made for frolicking about in sand and surf. Her wardrobe consists of: Barbie sunglasses from the early nineties, a Barbie net shirt over a Skipper swimsuit top, shorts from a Barbie fashion pack, handmade swim bottoms found at a doll show and Summer Crush Misaki’s sandals. Her props are a chair from the Arco brand Backyard Pool Set, a Barbie boom box and Promenade Amelie’s beach bag. Poppy’s photos were taken on an overcast day in early July at the beach in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
Whenever I See Her
It’s Always Summer
The Sun Breezily Dances Upon Her Hair
In Her Eyes The Depths Of The Ocean Reside
I Think To Myself
Every Time I See Her
This Is The Place
Where I Could Gladly Drown
. . .

I’m always amazed by how long it takes me to get back here and post. Life sure does fly by. Here’s a taste of springtime …before it melts into summer. LOL
A Poppy For Spring
Today’s model is Poppy Parker as Corie Bratter from the Barefoot In The Park: The Bratter Lovers giftset (***edited to correct my mistake*** – This is the doll from the Barefoot in the Park: Poppy Parker as Corie Bratter giftset – not The Bratter Lovers giftset, my memory is quite obviously not what it once was, sorry ;)). Poppy is wearing the dress from Barbie: The Look Collection – Party Perfect, The Happening Poppy’s fishnet tights and shoes, a Fashion Royalty bracelet and earrings and a ring from the jewelry section at the craft store (a fancy, solid jump ring). Her photos were taken in our yard on a nice day in early May.
In Spring – Springtime – The Time
Springy, Sproingy Spring…

Ugh…I have no excuse for not getting around to the lingering remains of winter doll photos…except that there are just so many.
So, even though it is technically spring, I’m still in winter mode. And I probably will be for a while. What can I say? I still have more winter wonder to share…
The Gang At The Snow Caves
You’ve already met the models, so see previous posts for the details. But the location is new. After all the shoveling, the snow piles were pretty substantial. Given such an opportunity, I couldn’t resist digging out a cavern and steps for the dolls. When the afternoon sun lit it up, a mess of dolls came out to play. The lighting didn’t last long, but it was enough to grab a few pictures. Woo- hoo!
Winter Still Has A Few Icy Gasps Left

Since wintertime isn’t going anywhere soon, it’s best to just embrace it. Bundle up and take a walk. Admire the sun shining on all that snow. Remember, eventually spring will steal it all away.
Poppy takes a walk up and down our street.
A good dose of sunshine makes it all look postcard perfect.
The snow adds an air of wintry romance.
Everywhere you go, always more snow.
Best to take it all in before it melts away.
Today’s model is one I used a few posts back, Foto Fab Poppy. Her photos were taken on the street in front of our house, on a sunny day in early February. Yeah, I’m about a month or so behind – just trying to catch up. :)
Put On Your Coat,
Grab Your Gloves And Hat,
Slip On Your Boots,
Bundle Into Your Scarf
And Come Take A Walk With Me.

The snow is still piled up all over the place, but it is slowly melting down. We’ll just have to enjoy it before winter subsides to spring.
Today’s model is no stranger, you saw Lilith in the last post here. But she’s buttoned up her jacket, snuggled into her scarf and continues to brave the great, frozen outdoors.
The Icehouse has melted. In the next photos, not much remains.
The world is still wrapped in winter white, but for how long?
Lily’s photos were taken all around our yard on a sunny winter day in early February.
Though Snowy Signs Remain,
Winter Will Soon Surrender To Spring.
