New Additions

"I'm not buying any more dolls!"  Uh huh. Famous last words. "I'm not buying any more doll stuff!"  Yeah. Sure. Ok. In spite of my determination, two more residents wound up in Moreville.  One jumped into my shopping cart.  The other magically showed up on my doorstep...

I love the lady in the gray and black gown. She is truly gorgeous! I was on the fence about the glam luxe Barbie, but I liked the clothes.

Here they are de-boxed.

Thanks to my favorite enabler, Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures, I checked out some of the Sparkle Girl fashions. They're perfect for my teens even if they are just a little big.

The redhead is wearing one of the Sparkle Girl fashions. It fits her pretty well, but I think most of those fashions are too young-looking for my older, sophisticated ladies. So my teens are thrilled to have some new clothes.

I couldn't resist doing a little story with the new girls. The redhead still hasn't given me her name, but the dark-haired beauty told me her name is Sophia. And yes, that is Krystal at the next table with one of her friends. Notice Casey and Ryan checking out all the new girls!  LOL :-)

Dr. Travis McIntyre, D.V.M

After meeting Dr. Travis at Casey's, Deb's heart wouldn't stop pounding. The man was not only handsome, but courteous and charming. It was hard for her to believe this was the same man who acted like a jerk to Cindi several months ago. Maybe he had a bad day and drank a little too much. He made a mistake. Big deal. Everyone makes mistakes at some point in their lives. He sincerely apologized to Cindi for his boorish behavior. Whether she accepts his apology or not is her problem. Deb wanted to see him, so she called and made an appointment for Taz.

Cindi won't be happy about this, but Deb isn't worried about it. She likes Travis and wants to get to know him better. And Travis likes her too. They have things in common. They both own successful businesses. They both love animals, photography and art.  And they both want someone special in their lives. Since both of them have been burned by previous relationships, neither one is in any hurry to get married or even serious. This is a great new beginning for both of them. :-)

Gifts from Mom

Well, not my mom, but Marianne's mom. Call her my adopted mom, and she's a real sweetheart. She gave me three new dolls as thank you gifts for taking care of her while Marianne was in the hospital recovering from knee surgery. Mom originally wanted to get me a nice bottle of wine from one of the local wineries, but after talking to Marianne, she decided I would get much more lasting enjoyment from the dolls. And she was right. Thanks Mom!

I'm sure you all recognize these two from Mattel's newest Red Carpet collection. They're absolutely beautiful!

I found the new Luxe Nikki at my local Walmart.

Here's Nikki deboxed and up close. I think she's gorgeous.

Here are the Red Carpet ladies deboxed.

Up close and personal. I get the feeling the redhead has a bit of an attitude. LOL Both will be rebodied and given Moreville identities.

This was not a gift from Mom but a gift to myself. I found this at Walmart along with the new bakery and the pet boutique. This playset has a date with some spray paint and a few modifications before it can become the Moreville Grocery. I'm thinking of getting the bakery next although the pet boutique has some things in it that Travis could use in his animal hospital.

As for dolls, I have my eye on the Red Carpet lady in the black and grey dress. Moreville continues to expand, and I keep having to sort and rearrange to make room for everybody. And now that I crochet, I have to make room for yarn as well. Geez! I so need a bigger house! :-)

Could This Be The "One" For Deb?

Since Marianne rarely gets into town anymore, Deb and Cindi decided to meet up with her at Casey's. The three hadn't seen each other since Cindi's birthday party, so they took the opportunity to catch up with each other.

I don't think Cindi is convinced that Travis is actually a decent human being after the night he tried to pick her up. That night, he wouldn't take "no" for an answer. So she taught him a lesson. Then she paid to fix the damage to Casey's wall.  LOL  I wonder how she'll react if her little sister Deb starts dating Travis, a man she's definitely not crazy about. This could get interesting....or ugly. Stay tuned!  :-)
