Marceline´s New Year trip – I. part – New Mexico (USA)

First, I hope you all had a really nice holidays and fabulous start of 2016.  Marceline, my family and I had a great time with my husband´s family, who lives in one of the most interesting places in the world (for me :)  – someone interested in migration and cultural differences) on the border between Mexico and USA. I love Ciudad Juarez , I love El Paso and of course I love the border and its peculiar and fascinating culture.

We arrived to Ciudad Juarez on Thursday 31th and we spent the very first moments of the New Year crossing the border to El Paso. So I hope our 2016 will be full of successfully overcome limits and borders :).

The first day we wanted to go to Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, New Mexico. Unfortunately the January 1st is the unique day when the Park is closed :(. So we took photos from afar and then we decided to go shopping to Las Cruces (New Mexico)… because all the other monuments have been closet as well.

So, here are the pictures from the first day of the trip.

In the Hobby Lobby  :)…  We LOVE it…  juarez4And in Target… Yes, this car is absolutely amazing and perfect for 16-19 inch dolls. It´s made by My Generation. Unfortunately is too big for our flat :( and for the airplane trip :(. One day… when I will have my own dolly room…  But Marceline was so happy driving that lovely car :). juarez5 juarez6 juarez7 juarez8 juarez9

Marceline – Penelope Brewster, Spicy Night – Déjà Vu Collection by Tonnerdoll 2014

I hardly ever buy dolls with the  sculpt I already have in my collection. But Déjà Vu is my perdition :). Spicy Night is my third Déjà Vu doll and I hope she is the last one.

My first Déjà Vu doll is wigged so I can change her image but is little bit difficult to travel with her. The wig isn´t comfortable. The second one is blonde and her hair is rooted. She is amazing and I bought her as the a twin of my first Déjà Vu (originally almost blonde) but I always prefer brunette dolls. dejavutres

When I saw Spicy Night for the first time, I didn´t like her at all. She reminded me too much My Scene Barbie. But with the time I was discovering real photos of her  and when I found her NRFB for incredible 85 USD with Cherished Friends, I couldn´t resist more. (BTW: I love Cherished Friends… great prices, great service and every doll, I bought with them, arrived to Mexico in 7 days only – including customs!!!)

And she is really amazing doll. Much more beautiful in person that on photos.

I love her outfit and shoes too. marceline1 marceline2 marceline3 marceline4

The 0nly problem is her jewelry. It is nice but I received it damaged. My bracelet is too short because it´s made with two metal flowers instead of three. Fortunatelly I don´t use original jewelry for my dolls so I do not care about it.

I like her green eyes but they look great in person only. In the photos they look yellow :(. I decided to change the colour of her eyes to blue. So now she is my Marceline, the youngest sister of Margueritte and Michelle :). marceline6 marceline7

With her new glasses :) marceline8 marceline9

And with her sisters in autumn Paris:
