Franklin Mint Vinyl: Scarlett & Christmas with Ashley
Just in time for Christmas, Scarlett arrived yesterday. And although her new price tag was mighty steep (thankfully I was able to get a discount!), she really does look fantastic...even better than the publicity shot on the Franklin Mint’s website. For her first shot, I pulled out the black coat that she wore to the depot to greet Ashley (expertly tailored by Alana of Doll Fashions by Alana!) and added the Paris Hat that Rhett bought for her. For the background shot, I used a photo that I took in the San Jacinto Mountains above Palm Springs (snow in Southern California???).
And for the rest of the shots, it’s just plain ol’ Scarlett. The detail is amazing; beautiful fabric (albeit a little sticky), the tiny buttons down the front of the top, the lace collar and cameo, and the hairdo...wow! As if she just stepped out of the movie. At some point, I might have to repaint her glowing green eyes!
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and Holiday Season, whatever you may celebrate!
