1st Day Of the New Year

Today is the first day of the new year 2012 and it has been a mild and rather wet day so we stayed home, except for a lovely brunch with the family and relaxed and did not much of anything, which is sometimes nice to do.  TV has been mostly running marathons of everything from The Mentalist to Once Upon a time and even The Honeymooners.  I watched many old musicals and movies over the last few days and so I decided to play with some dolls. 

Like many other doll collectors lately I have been bitten by the Monster High bug.  These dolls are the "bee's knees", as they used to say and have alot of bang for the buck but of course you can end up with too many before you know it.   Today I decided to photograph my Draculauras.  One is missing from the group because she's hanging out at work - Dawn of the Dance but the others are here.  Similar face paints on them and I hadn't even noticed that Dead Tired has no fangs, and is by far, IMO, the cutest of the bunch.

A group shot,

Dead Tired and Gloom Beach

The Original

Fearleading Squad Drac

Draculaura 2.0, School's Out

And the latest Sweet 1600,

And a few more group shots,

I'm going to continue to try and photograph the others in the next few days.  This should take my mind off the hunt for Cupid.

Happy New Year to all!!


  1. Happy New Year. Wow your love for DL is about as big as mine for Ghoulia. I have every one of her expect the Comic Con & Gloom Beach.

    I may have to get DT since I like her coloring. I hope I can find her :O)

    Anika :O)

  2. Thank you Anika, unfortunately I think I like all of the too much. My is a toss up between drac and Ghoulia. I missed Gloom beach and comic con as well. Hate to jump through hoops to get some of the dolls.
