This time of year, graveyard tours and cemetery walks at older historical locations seem to be quite popular. I don’t know if it’s the recent influx of all the ‘paranormal’ and ‘haunted’ reality television shows fueling it or simply a sign of the season. I remember visiting old graveyards with my family when I was a kid and marveling at how old the dates on the headstones were and how no one seemed to live very long. We have a small cemetery in town that dates back to the Revolutionary War and hubby took me there today. I have to say that despite some dark clouds looming and falling leaves tossing on the wind, it didn’t feel “creepy” to me. In fact, being in the graveyard seemed to fill me with a sense of peace and serenity. Is that weird? Well, whether or not, that’s how I felt: calm, relaxed and free from worry. And I hope all the souls residing there feel the same way.

Today’s doll is a Poppy that’s not a Poppy. This dollie was made for Fashion’s Night Out at the Bergdorf Goodman store in NYC – though it utilizes the Poppy head & body molds, it is not officially considered a Poppy Parker character doll. She is wearing her original earrings and shoes, Cynthia Rowley Barbie’s trenchcoat, an Integrity Toys dress from a baggie doll and a Fashion Royalty multi-strand necklace. Poppy is leaning on a headstone and looking over the rest of the grave markers in the back corner of the cemetery.
