Good morning, fabulous people! It's so great to be back. I hope everyone has been awesome. I'd been dealing with a technical issue for months that was finally resolved with some sweat equity, the help of sympathetic folks at Google and a couple of sympathetic tech guys I know. I hope...I pray that I will NEVER, EVER, EVER have to experience that again. Anyhoo, I was down much longer than I'd planned but never really out if you know what I mean. I'm back just in time for the holidays so let's have some fun. Smooches....

|On display in the Barbie Man's massive 2,000+ collection is a doll that is not the original Goddess of Africa (see below). I do believe this doll wears the Asha face mold although it could be Christie.|

|I would love to live in this Barbie room in the Barbie Man's home. He has three more bedrooms and a bathroom full of Barbie dolls and other Barbie toys.|
His collection fills four of the seven bedrooms and one bathroom in his beautiful Hudson, Florida home. Surely Stanley lives alone because no one would tolerate so much Barbieness, right? Wrong! Stanley's partner Dennis Schlicker, began collecting Ken dolls after he and Stanley met. So far Dennis has 1,000 of those. The couple has been together for 13 years.
If Stanley ever allows private tours, I'd love to be on the list.

I really wish I hadn’t surfed across Joe’s List - Joe Blitman’s Fashion & Celebrity Dolls. OMG he has an extensive offering of hard-to-find doll collectibles for sale. There’s an African-American Barbie Convention Doll Set I could die for but $400 is just not in my budget right now. Arrgh!
Barbie and computer gadgets are my weaknesses so Joe’s site will definitely be a struggle for me to avoid spending money. Please pray for me...I am so serious.

Instead, the outfit looks thrown together. There’s not nearly enough Kente cloth shown. The plaids are overpowering and make the design feel “heavy". After reading an interesting post on the Black Doll Collecting blog, I find that under the Byron Lars design name, Fenella Layla Barbie was actually designed by Ann Driskill.
I usually like Driskill’s designs. I’m looking forward to more great ones from her in the future. I’m still adding this to my Barbie Collection and looking forward to the next Byron Lars Barbie.
