Last Saturday the Fourth Annual Ice Festival was held on Main Street in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Every year, I grab a doll or two and my camera and nab some photos. The local businesses commission sculptures that are placed in front of their stores. Ice carvers create a great chair on site from large blocks of ice on the midway. It’s a nice boost for the local economy as folks duck into the many eateries and shops for a break to warm up during their walking tour. The weather cooperated this year, it was cold (so the melting was kept to a minimum) but brightly overcast with the sun peeking out every now and then. My husband and I enjoyed the sights and unexpectedly met up with another friend who joined us for a stop at Starbucks and hung out for the second half of our photo run. The dolls even drew a few admirers as they posed with the frozen art, and found themselves the subject of several paparazzi. 🙂 Fun times.

Today’s models are Day Tripper Poppy Parker and The Happening Poppy Parker. Day Tripper is wearing a hat and scarf that I crocheted myself, Dynamite Girls Heart of Glass Aria’s jacket, a Barbie camisole, Crazy Girl Misaki’s skirt, Masterpiece Theatre Giselle’s tights and Eternally Together: Dracula’s Brides Lucy’s boots . The Happening is wearing Lead Singles Lilith’s jacket, Rock Wedding: Rock Steady Romain’s scarf, Checking Out Colette’s blouse, City Girl Imogen’s trousers and Anti-Social Girl Misaki’s boots . Both dolls have had their hair washed and brushed out. Their photos were taken all over Main Street and a jolly time was had by all.

Sometimes, I don’t take a new doll out of the box right away. Instead, I’ll save her for a rainy day…or at least a day when she’ll best be enjoyed. When the Integrity Toys convention was going on at the end of September, I was “ooh”ing and “ah”ing over all the new dolls and wishing I was there. But springing this little one from her box got me over most of my regret. And I only ended up splurging on one convention doll on the secondary market so far. Here’s to enjoying the dolls that I already have…

Today’s model is Day Tripper Poppy Parker. Her hair was been washed and brushed out. She is wearing a top, bracelet and sunglasses borrowed from Barbie, Crazy Girl Misaki’s skirt, socks from one of the Integrity Toys dolls (not sure who the original owner was) and Baby It’s You Poppy’s shoes. Poppy is also carrying Top Model Resort Summer’s handbag. Her photos were taken in our front yard on a sunny afternoon: the first and last in one of our flower gardens, the second on our patio and the third on our rock wall.
