Clawd Wolf and Draculaura Music Festival Dolls

I know Draculaura doesn't like the sun.  But it was such a pretty day I took some pictures and pretended she does.  Dracularua and her wolffriend Clawd Wolf decided to take a few mintues to sit by the pool and discuss the bands at the Music Festival.

I got my Draculaura and Clawd Wolf Music Festival doll set today at Kmart.  It's a Kmart exclusive.  I had been looking for a while every time I was in the store and finally I found them. They just jumped right in the cart and came home with me.  Right away I opened the dolls and took some photos.  I especially love Clawd because he's been so elusive.  Stop by my blog and see all the pics and read my thoughts on them.

Blythes Bedroom In The Dollhouse

I started putting some furniture in the dollhouse today, even though I haven't finished with the walls/floors.  This is Kenner Blythe's room.  It looks a little sparse right now but stay tuned and I assure you it will look fantastic soon.  I bought a Dremel Multimax sander and have been working on smoothing the walls so I can paint or wallpaper.  There are 5 more rooms to furnish, 2 of them are the width of the entire dollhouse.  I've got lots of ideas but I have to buy when I have cash available so progress isn't as speedy as I'd hoped.  No worries, I'm still inspired and look for dolly stuff everywhere I go.  See that little snow globe on the dresser?  I got that from Hobby Lobby in the Christmas ornament section.  I will take a closeup picture soon so you can see it better.  Here's the entire story:

Pirates of the Caribbean Action Figures

My grandson loves the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  He's got a few of the action figures and it's so cute to watch him play "fighting" with them.  He puts them in my dollhouse and pretends it's the castle.  Of course they get beat up so I don't buy him the expensive collectible action figures.  There are some that are definitely priced for adult collectors.  The detail on these toys and collectibles is remarkable. Fun for kids and adults too.

Novi Stars Alien Dolls

 I'm new to Novi Stars. I just picked up a couple of the first versions on clearance at Marshalls.  Luckily they are both sets with outfits.  My favorite is Cici Thru.  She has a clear body and little blue wings.  Cici comes with 2 outfits or "skins" that slip on over her body.  They have a slit in the back that allows easy on and off.  Read about them on my blog.

Clawdeen Wolf Monster High Dolls

I write articles about my dolls and many of them are about my Monster High doll collection.  Clawdeen is my favorite ghoul and I'm trying to collect all of the Clawdeen Wolf doll versions.  It's going to be tough because there are lots.  She's probably the most prolific, along with Lagoona Blue.

I just revamped my Clawdeen Wolf page and included some updated products.  Have a look.

Dinosaur Baby Rooms

Some of the cutest baby rooms I've seen all decorated in dinosaur crib bedding and nursery accessories.  Lamps, rugs, curtains, wall decor, diaper stackers, blankets, and more. If I have any more grandchildren I'm going to redecorate the kids room.

Madeline Hatter From Ever After High

Meet Madeline Hatter, daughter of the Mad Hatter and one of the Rebel students at Ever After High.  I opened my Maddie doll today and took some pics.  She's my favorite of the Ever After High dolls thus far.  Her coloring is lovely.  Love the plum and aqua combination.  Did you know she keeps Earl Grey tea in that teacup on her head?  She can be ready for tea at a moments notice. Read all about her on my blog post.

Rare Monster High Dolls

I made my list of the dolls I long to buy but can't afford. The ones I wish that I had known to buy back when they were available in the stores. Now the prices are in the stratosphere and I'll probably never have them.  Maybe I will put one on my most wanted Chirstmas or Birthday list and someone will have pity on this crazy doll collector.  Take a look at my list and see if yours is similar.

La Dee Da

I just started my collection of La Dee Da Dolls by Spinmaster.  I've seen a few of the earlier versions at Ross, Marshalls, and Tuesday Morning so I've been picking them up at a discount. I've got 4 so far, Dee City Girl and Dots of Style, Tylie Kabuki Cutie, and Cyanne Peppermint Party.  I haven't opened them yet bit I will take pics when I do.  I had to make a list of all the sets and releases so I could track which dolls I need to find.

Artsy Girl Doll

Tonner Toys Little Missmatched Artsy Girl Doll
I am a huge fan of Littlemissmatched Dolls.  Of course it's another discontinued line.  Why do I always find the dolls after they aren't in stores anymore?  Anyway I managed to get one of each of these cuties online. They are made by Tonner Doll Company and have Littlemissmatched clothing.  I've got City Girl, Sporty Girl, Rock N Roll Girl, and Artsy Girl (shown above).  You can view my pictures and read my article on my Diary of a Dollhouse blog.

Pop Life Barbie / Ken

Pop Life Barbie and her friends are on my wish list for someday.  They are limited editions that weren't popular at all when they were in stores.  Now that they're discontinued I want them.  The Ken doll has less than 1,000 made. I saw all 4 on eBay for $350 and didn't buy them.  I didn't have the cash at the time.  I'll have them eventually though.  Read my article about Pop Life Barbie and Ken by clicking the link.

Apple White Doll

Apple White Ever After High Doll

Apple White - daughter of Snow White - and heir to the fairy tale kingdom.  She's learning the skills at Ever After High.  Problem is that not all the other characters in the story want to follow in their parents footsteps.  Read about her on my Diary of a Dollhouse blog.

Ninja Turtle Legos

My own kids played with Ninja Turtles when they were little.  Now they're back.  Or did they ever go away.  I got my grandson this Ninja Turtle Lego set and built it with him recently.  Look at the cute little turtle minifigs!  I love Lego minifigs.
