Quick update. I went to Toys-R-Us and I got Wellie Wishers Emerson. I think she is just adorable. I will be going back soon to get another WW soon. I already know who I'm going to pick lol. Anyway here are a few quick pics of Emerson.
I spent way too much time in the store trying to pick the right one.
I still have dolls waiting to be deboxed, but I couldn't wait to open her!
She will fit right in with my Hearts 4 Hearts girls.
found this Barbie at a consignment store. The price was right so I quickly
scooped her up. She is Cali Girl Teresa 2004. She and her dress are in
excellent shape although it is not her original outfit. Her hair does need to
Her face is
gorgeous. I just love this Barbie mold. Later Mattel changed the Teresa doll mold.
Here she is with my
other Barbie Teresa dolls. (From left: Cali Girl Teresa 2003, Fashion Fever

got this cute Hearts for Heart doll Dell for a good price. The only thing wrong
with her is that she had a few ink spots on her face.
I've seen lots of
people on blogs use benzoil peroxide (Cleracil) so I gave it a try. After a few
days it was still there.
So I did the next
step. I covered her eyes because the eyes on these dolls tend to fade and I'm
not sure if it is because of sun exposure. I then wrapped her face in gauze to
keep the cotton balls intact.
I covered her with
a sheet and left only the part of her face exposed with benzoil peroxide. I put
her out in the sun for an hour.
She came out
perfect. Her vinyl was very soft at first but then firmed back up. I know this
technique is probably old news for most seasoned doll collectors but it's nice
to see that it works.
