Happy Mail Day!




I received my Ashton Drake Galleries Blythe Love N' Lace in the mail this week.   This edition is a rare replica made by ADG in 2004, based on the original Kenner design from 1972.  She came perfectly boxed in dress, shoes, stand, a booklet and Certificate of Authenticity. The seller even gave me an original tear sheet of an add for her, a very sweet touch.
I hope she can hold me over as I dream of a Kenner or find one at a yard sale or Goodwill! (wishful thinking)  She is lovely, with long red hair and green shadow. She has just a bit of yellowing around her nose area, but not really noticeable in photos at all. 
I will try the Retrobright technique I learned from Austin Darling but will first start with a teeth whitening strip technique from PublicRelationslunatic. Even with the yellow bit she is still a very pretty girl and I am so happy to have her in my personal collection.
