"The Chronicles of The Dream Pagoda"

Sooooo........did you think "The Chronicles of Barbie's...
...Dream...
....Pagoda... were drawing to a close?
Honestly ,I wasn't sure. Never ,since the beginning of my blogging journey have I not even "lurked" on my pals! Let's just say I'm felling a bit more centered and back to myself.
Speaking of dream houses....hows this for a candidate?
For the time being our current "dream house" is not yet a reality.Fingers still crossed ,though.
...but this ones available. Somehow, I find it too slick. Is that possible?
In other Pagoda news ...my oldest baby's all growed up!With the money she made from her professional debut,she got a super fancy haircut and color!I love it ,but admit I had my doubts,what with Crooked Halo's "dramatic" taste buds... I did fear something dreamed up in the imagination of...
....Edward Scissorhands.
I'm just sayin'...(what,you thought I could get through a whole post without a Project Runway reference?).

Amazingly,it seems my Blogpanions have not forgotten me. Look what Jennifer ,from The Felt Mouse sent me!
The treasure within.Do it your self New Years fairy lights!
I created a necklace for my sometime model Josephine. Next year I plan to string my Happy New Year greeting along a new mantel(and in a new home!). Thank you Jennifer !
So just what have I been up to at the Pagoda? Well,besides laundry and then some more laundry,in the evenings the fam gathers round the tube and watches old Mission Impossible re-runs. They are simply the best! We've been catching the Leonard Nimoy era of late.We cuddle up on the couch and get ready to watch the MI gang thwart some fiendish political plot based in a vaguely northern European country. Nimoy gets to strut his stuff as a "serious actor" and attempt one ghastly accent after the next.Peter Graves,though quite dashing,looks like he has been smoking and sunbathing since puberty. The Foley artist seems to be the real star of the show ,with much of the action shot MOS (without sound)with sound effects folied in later.It must have cost absolutely nothing with the majority of the action taking place on the back lots at Desilu. In fact ,every time the same basement winding staircase shows up(in yet a different country)it gets a big laugh from the pagoda household!
Check your listings,its actually big fun family entertainment!


...and a sneak peek.....
Next up MOVCFM . I really havn't had anything of interest to say here in bloggy world and thought my way back in would always be when I started my vintage fashion zine back up. I was sure I had the perfect idea from a holiday movie I loved.
...but you see to write about it,I actually have to be wearing it.Thats what gives me the inspiration to share. Thus ,I shall be tackling a special "Baby its Cold Outside and all I want to do is wear my PJ's till Noon" issue.
See you soon!

Crooked Halo looks lovely and quite grown up.
I've never seen Mission Impossible on the small or the large screens, although I've always liked the theme song. You've almost made it seem tempting.
I'm looking forward to the next issue of MOVCFM - the preview was quite delicious looking.
