I have the W Club exclusives "Truly, Madly, Deeply" Agnes and "High End Envy" Erin on order, and they'll be here somewhere around the first or second week of September. I'll be sure to photograph them for you. Just got an e-mail asking for the remainder of my payments for the two. So excited! They will be my very first Agnes and Erin.
Now that my kitchen is done, I'll actually have time to start photographing dollies again. Yay!

|The tiles are made from recycled glass.|
My first step was watching literally 7-8 tutorial videos on Youtube on how to make a tiled backsplash for the kitchen. I've never used mortar before in my life. I've never used grout before in my life. LOL. This whole project has been a first for me.
|Blue painter's tape outlines the area where I will put the tile.|
The mortar has to dry overnight before I can do the grout and caulk the edges. Not done yet! But ... the major work is done.
|The mortaring and tiling begins!|
|After a full day of work, the tiling is finally done.|
|I had some tile left over, so I decided to do a spot above the sink as well.|

She does have a small bald spot in the back, but it's completely covered by hair and I don't see the need to do a partial re-root on her like I did with my Holiday in the Hamptons Poppy Parker. I'm sure the small bald spot was put there to keep her hair from being too full, since it was meant to be in ponytails. She does have a nice side-part all the way down her scalp, so that keeps the small bald patch from showing.
I think she looks quite nice with her hair down. I think she looks thoughtful in these pictures rather than sleepy. She's wearing the shirt from "Most Sophisticated" Sabrina, as you can see.

The Happening and Sunshine Games are nice, too, but look slightly sleepy to me... a combination of that eye screening with the applied lashes. My Dream Teen Poppy had applied lashes, too, but didn't look sleepy ... just drop-dead sexy. I still like them even more than I thought I would. The sequined dress on Happening is wonderfully crafted, and her earrings are nicely made and very cool.
Well, I hope that was a thoughful review. Overall I quite like these three, although I'm not sure they're going to be my favorite Poppy Parkers of all time or anything. The new eye screenings are just not my favorite, although they're OK. I'm not sure whether I'll bother sending the yellow boots back to Integrity to be replaced. I haven't decided yet.
