Kicking off my Birthday 'Week-End' .Celebration ...Day 1

Hey Dolls! It's been a while since I posted. I have been in a quandry with work and keeping up with all the dolls that both Mattel and Integrity have been literally pelting us with! Some I have had to pass on just because there were more dolls I want from Mattel- which is a first this year! Today the Wonder Woman dolls were released! My poor wallet. 

Today kicks off my 'Week' -End Celebration of my birthday. It's the first time in a long time my husband and I have had the time and funds on a weekend to do anything , with the weather cooperating. So I've been doing shopping for food, so we can grill, cook, etc. Haven't decided what kind of cake I want. Usually I just buy it, but I might make my own cake this year, since the Easter cake turned out so well! 

The other night I was browsing on Ebay and found this little lady. 
Wedding Day Barbie She just arrived today and she was so cheap. I made an offer on her which was accepted. In our fashion doll club we are going to need a swirl ponytail doll for a class so I figured getting the wedding gown and this doll for that price was too good to pass up. 
Here she is-

back of the box-

I will have another birthday present arriving soon- Champagne Poppy Parker, who I was expecting today but hasn't arrived, but another ebay find- the 1973 Barbie foldup Country Living house. I had this house and still do, only mine has a cracked roof and is somewhere in the attic. I found one with all the furniture and its roof is intact on ebay for $15, the shipping was what killed me. So that is my birthday present this year for me too. Shhh... don't tell on me. lol . I'm not counting the bride doll because I really need her for a future workshop and I got her cheap, lol. 
All for now- off to dinner with the girls at the Bass Pro shop restuarant!

Thank you Pheonix , thank you Phyllis.
I may keep her like she is , she is so lovely- but she was so Cheap! She was 9.99 with make an offer- I offered $7 and shipping was about $7-8. She was about $15 altogether or maybe $16 total, not bad.

Leslie , my friend who attended the OOAK doll convention , did these amazing workshops where they used a swirl ponytail repro barbie similar to this one, I think they used the anniversary silkstone bathing suit one, and did their own design your own dress with 'unconventional ' trims- like candy wrappers, balloons, etc. She showed us some wonderful pics and then they had a workshop where you could trim your dress with your own trims. So that is what she may be for.
