Deck the dolls~

I'm going to start back up with a simple post, as I am short on time yet again! But I wanna get *something* out there for y'all to see......


I'll be sharing more Christmas decor and gifts soon!


But for now, some of my dollies sporting Gone With the Wind fashions in Christmas colors~
*click to enlarge*
Starting on the left we have a Tonner Scarlett wearing "kissing Ashely good bye" made by Alana. She is my newest and first ever Tonner doll. I like her because she is articulated more than the mint dolls. Above her is a Franklin Mint Scarlett wearing the green "Christmas Dinner" dress, also made my Miss Alana. You can read about my life sized Christmas dress I'm having made here, (nope, not finished yet!)
In front of them is another Franklin Mint Scarlett wearing their version of the "staircase robe".
Lounging in front of the tree we have an Ashton Drake doll, Madra, whom I bought to play Belle from Gone with the Wind. You can read more about that here. I don't think I'll have the heart to cut her hair and I've become quite attached to her as Madra.... so I'll be on the prowl for another Belle soon. Madra is wearing the green velvet "no more babies" gwtw robe and night gown (complete with a faux corset) made by the Franklin Mint.



Eek. I couldn't find anything to use for a tree skirt so you'll just have to deal with it, lol! Just a little tree that I threw some of my vintage baubbles on. I have better pics of that from last year...


Lastly we have a Gene doll, also made by Ashton Drake. She looks luscious in the Franklin Mint's version of "Ashley's Birthday party dress". Who wouldn't?

I clicked on dolls for the giveaway contest and I'm glad I did. I don't remember reading this post, maybe because it was Jan 3rd and we were leaving on a trip.

I enjoyed reading this and seeing the beautiful Scarlett dolls!
