Eleven Random facts about myself:

3. I like the toys from the 80's.

5. I discover myself in making movie by using the stop motion animated. But I would wish to add voices in my movies. If some of you want to help me, just let me know. I do appreciate.

6. With the time I have discovered that I like to give some of my creations to people who like dolls. It is a real pleasure for me to give. And by the end of the year 2015, you can win this three fabulous fashions : 

7. This year, some articles have been written on my collections in two magazines.

9. I like singing whatever comes into my head.

1. How old were you when you received your first doll? What happened to her?
I was 5 years old when I received my first Barbie doll. It was the happiness in my life. It was my first doll who was smiling. The end of her story, it is so sad to say, I was obliged to put her in the recycling bin, against my will, after thirty three years.  

2. If you were to hit the one million dollar/euro lottery, how would this impact your current doll collection?
For sure, I will have a big room to expose all my collection. I can imagine how my room will be decorated with pink color and my Barbie painting. 

I will have a part for my Jem dolls collections and my Fashion Royalty dolls.

3. Champagne, beer, soda or water?
I prefer water. It is good for health. 

4. City or country person?
Both. I like the city for its accessibility. I like the country for the nature.

5. Favorite genre of music?
There are so much that I like. It is difficult to choose one. Pop, classic, rock, reggae, zouk, ... so much !

6. What is it about a doll that catches your eye and prompts you to place it on your wish list?
Not really, because with the time I am very selective. A doll has to fit my several rules. For exemple for My Fashion Royalty collection, I want to have one doll and only one doll by name :  one Natalia Fatale, one Adele Makeda, one Veronique Perrin  ...  the problem is I don't have to make a mistake when I decide to buy one doll. For Barbie doll, I decide to buy a new Barbie doll when I know this Barbie doll is a must have doll in my collection. Sometime (it is rare) I don't respect my rules :  I just buy a second Vanessa Perrin doll. But I console myself because she has a different mold face.

7. Cat person or dog person?
I am a dog person. The name of my first dog was Rambo and his brother was Rocky. 
Can you imagine the ambience at home. Now my two dogs are died since 20 years. But at a moment in my life, I missed dogs. And where I live, I could not have a dog. So I decided to have a guinea pig. Her name was Bibi. And at her time, she died July 3, 2015.  

8. Name five of your favorite posts from your blog?

This part is difficult to answer, because there are a lot of posts that I like so much.

1. Lieutenant Columbo

2. 1988 Barbie Catalogue

3. My vintage

4. I am a Barbie fan

5. Barbie light up vanity

9. How has your blog evolved since you first began?
I consider that my blog has evolved from a sharing of my passion to a source of some informations about Barbie in the 80's. But My principal goal is to share  what I done with the pictures, the handmade fashions, the movies ... 

10. What (if anything) have you learned from your experiences in the doll community?
I have learned, it is a big community where you can share your passion, some important informations before all the public. And that community has no limit in the world. That is great.

11.How will you know when you have "enough" dolls?
I don't have enough doll. I hope that I will have enough dolls one day. But for the moment, I say to myself enough when the purse does not follow all I want to buy,  when I have no more place in my house and when I don't have time to take care of my dolls.

Bibi est le nom que j'ai donné à mon cochon d'inde.
Bibi is the name that I had given to my guinea pig.

Dans certains de mes commentaires, je la mentionne très brièvement.
In some of my comments, I briefly mentioned about my guinea pig. 

Mais aujourd'hui, je pense qu'il est temps pour moi de parler un peu d'elle ouvertement.
But today, I think it's time for me to speak a bit of it openly. She was with me when I had started to sew some fashions for my collection. She was with me when I had started to make movie with my collection. 

Elle nous a quitté vendredi 03 juillet 2015 à 4:59.
She died Friday, July 3rd, 2015 at 4:59.

Cela m'a complètement dévasté à un tel point que j'en avais perdu ma créativité pour la couture.
I was completely devastated to the point that I had lost my creativity for sewing.

J'ai essayé de faire son portrait que je veux partager avec vous.
I tried to paint his portrait I wanted to share with you.

Au revoir ma petite boule. Merci d'avoir partager 7 ans avec nous.
Goodbye my little Bibi. Thank you for sharing 7 years with us.
