Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

Just wanted to share a few photos here... last year's XMas these was white and silver.... and for this year, I had intended on going way to the opposite of the spectrum - Black... and I was just going to Spray Paint my branch tree black when I received a package from my dear friend, and fellow doll lover, Mary Ewing... in is a very cute white reindeer with silver antlers... this Beanie Baby reindeer from TY is soooo cute, I abandoned my plans immediately and stuck with my white and silver tree...
And it does not stop there, I had to pull my OOAK Fairy Susie doll, a gift from another great friend, Lisa Miller, to join the XMas display - she is the perfect pair for the reindeer... don't you think???

XP: Happy Hanukkah All!!!

Did not want to let this season's Festival of Lights, better know to us all as Hanukkah, pass by without wishing all of you, my friends a very WONDERFUL and SHINING Season of Hanukkah!

Truly one of the best Holidays I have ever come to known - i love the music, the prayer, the bringing of the family & friends together for the tradition of lighting up the candles for 8 consecutive nites culminating on a feast to celebrate the occasion... and not forgetting the 8 Gifts, one for each nite.... okay this part are mostly for kids, but hey, am a BIG KID.... simply heartwarming.....

Growing up in the Bay Area, I was Blessed to have experienced and come to know this Jewish Holiday... have even practiced the tradition for a few years.... and actually miss the tradition's ritual now and again....
PHOTO CREDIT NOTE: Thanks to Terri's beautiful Italicphotograph above... the BEST Dolly Chanukah photo I have seen this season... Great Set up & Editing -- Rabbi & All!....

Bring them Home for the Holidays!!

On this first of DEC, we are Joyous to share with you all, a couple of OOAK Susie dolls, just in time for the Holidays!!! "Golden Memories" in shimmering gold and lace; and "Sweet Memories" in an sophisticated, and oh-so-sexy gown of Lite Pink. The dolls are the 2nd collaboration between R&D and Ma'tto Garcia - who hails from Manila, Philippines and is a very talented and well known, fashion designer (for both real live & vinyl dolls. He is very much sought after for his Wedding and Party gowns - which keeps him quite busy. Now and again, he would delight a doll collecting friend, like me, with his creations but he is not one to mass produce anything. He finds making the same gown more than once or twice tedious and boring - like a real artist would! But his love for dolls and doll collecting gave way into winning him over and coaxing him into sharing his creations and talents more Internationally. The first time, was when we invited him to collaborate with us for the OOAK Susie doll donated for the Charity Auction at this year's IFDC Convention in Las Vegas. his creation got a very nice reception and actually raised a little over $500 for the Charity Auction - not bad at all, if I may say so myself.And now, after a few more ribbing, we got him to finally agreed for a series of offering to the you all - dolly & Susie lovers. We all felt that there is no better time to announce and Debut, the first in a succession of Collaborative offerings between R&D and Ma'tto Garcia, than this festive time of the year.



The Susie dolls' used are the DG POP Susie, with their hair, totally revamped and restyled; plus ever so slightly touch of make up... to better compliment their fabulous gowns. Great attention to details and workmanship was poured in to bring you these dolls - and we are pretty sure you will all agree. Both gowns uses the finest of fabrics and are meticulously hand beaded byMa'tto Garcia, himself!!!

Each doll comes in her own Holiday Box; Stand, Shoes & Jewelry. The dolls are $185.00 each (shipping not included). Be sure to drop us a line if interested... she just might brighten up your XMas Celebration!!!
