I was thinking . . . Sugar, Coco and Pepper. That doesn't sound like the Chapeaux Collection, it sounds like the Spices Collection. Too bad Pepper is the last one. I could have gone for Paprika and Salt. Could you imagine . . .?

BC.com formally announced the Gorgeous Greetings Collection. Previously only one doll had been announced and that was the Caucasian Disco Doll. She can be seen here. She is wearing purple. Forum member Felicity made a nice list of the upcoming dolls and their head molds:
"Happy Birthday, Angel!" = Mackie face
"Happy Birthday, Gorgeous!" = smiling face, possibly Generation Girl mold
"Celebrate, "Disco Doll!" = Caucasian has Mackie face, AA - Steffie
There have been pictures of these dolls posted on other sites that showed the Angel doll with the Steffie mold. Mattel had warned that the dolls were not finalized so don't be fooled by any pictures posted that aren't the official Mattel pictures. The boxes are very stylish and are modeled after greeting cards that open up and play a song. Hopefully Mattel will release the pictures to the public soon. These dolls will be available in July. Mine are already on pre-order with Pinkponytail.com. I think I might have to get more than one of the AA doll!
I decided to go ahead and buy the Lady of the Unicorns. I heard on BC.com that she was back up for sale at mfd.net so I decided to pre-order her. Now I don't have to worry about missing her at FAO. If you are interested in this doll head on over to MFD.

I received a few e-mails from Randall Craig about their new Living Room Accessory set.
Here is another photo of the RC accessories.
We are pleased to introduce our first RC Home Accessory Set. This is a

a custom woven rug, 3 square pillows, cushions for the sectional in a wonderful textured upholstery, and a glass bowl with rocks (to add an earthy element). What a great way to give a new look to The Living Room! LE 50, only $40.
Available for order now directly through Randall Craig, Inc. Please
send orders to rcfashion at aol.com.
*Please note that Randall Craig, Inc. is closed on weekends so please do not expect responses to e-mails send over the weekend.

Head on over to BC.com for the new monthly calendar. This month features Campus Sweetheart. There is something just so beautiful about this doll. I am so tempted to buy her! Maybe she will go on sale or I'll find her cheaper at the Mattel Toy Store. I just love her packaging too.
I received some great news from Claudia over at Pink Ponytail. Speed Racer and My Melody have arrived. These are some great sets and I can't wait to receive them. I highly recommend Claudia for all your Barbie needs. If you buy from her, please tell her Sandra sent you!
Today's picture for the day is the now missing from the My Scene gang Nolee. This is Rebel Style Nolee. I miss walking into stores and buying My Scene dolls off the shelf. Sadly, they have virtually disappeared from major US toy retailers.
