Happy Birthday to me!

Today, May 1st is my the dolls and my best doll friend, Agnes, threw me a birthday party at the Manor. It was fun! I got to wear my new red dress, I got CAKE...balloons, and loads of fun. What more  could a doll want??? Well.........DOLLS.
Today I decided to de-box the hoard of dolls I have purchased but just never got around to deboxing for Barbietown and dioramas I want to do. So today I did.
I started with that extrodinary find Barbie and Chrissy bedtime/babysitting set I found at an antique store a couple of weeks ago.
I love this doll! Her hair is gorgeous!

I have shown her here with Holland Barbie, because I thought they looked a little similar, but I don't think so. Holland Barbie uses the teen Skipper sculpt. (I have decided to rebody Holland Barbie for teenage Mary Ingalls) But back to the set- Her outfit is cute! and the crib is adorable. I did not know the crib can move teh Chrissy doll back and forth and play music. It also comes with a moveable mobile, canopy and  the baby bottles and accessories.
Then I moved on to the Great Oz doll. I picked him up at Walmart one day before they were completely gone.

In spite of the 'big head' he has going on, I think he can work in my Victorian scenes. I took comparison pics of him with Pa Ingalls and Victorian Lady Barbie and his head is just way too big. I love his suit though and China Doll is adorable. However, his valise does not open. 
Onto Teacher Barbie playset. This was on sale for $9? I think or $11. The Chelsea has jointed knees and can raise her hand.

Teacher Barbie has adorable shoes and outfit. I may keep her as a worker doll in the school on the shelves I'm working on. The chalkboard is cute and the set comes with glue bottle, scissors and lunchbos as well as Chelsea's desk and a large piece of chalk. I think however, the Barbie has hollow legs because her left leg wants to turn inward.....but the props are worth the money and she was on sale for half off. can't beat that deal with two dolls in there!

And last but not least is Out Sass Vanessa. I haven't yet de-boxed her or Carlisle from the Twilight dolls. Trying to save me some doll time and deboxing these three dolls was fun! 

I am hoping to spend the rest of the day with my hubby and maybe the weekend with my parents since work is crazy busy. 
More on the blog later, now I have to get back to my party or Agnes is going to be upset!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lisa! Looks like you are having a fabulous bday party. I love seeing all of your new purchases. I think that's the crib I painted black some years ago. I like the Oz guy with Pa Ingalls. They look like they could be related.

Don't they look alike? The big head on Oz bothers me, but I love his outfit and that cute tiny china doll.After playing with that crib, I understand why ebay sellers get so much for it.

It was fun having a day to debox some of teh dolls with no interruptions!
