Today's Woot!: Managed to scoop up several unidentified ponies online. though after checking with the pictures, I got a hold of Waterfire AND Daybreak. I'm really excited about the 2nd because I was just looking to get Waterfire. Daybreak is a big win for me, and I hope she looks as good in person. :-)
Trading: Buying up ponies in bulk for a base stock for ebay sales. One auction lost (my alarm failed to go off) but another auction is looking very promising.
Today's Favorite Pony: Avalonia. I love her eyes, the streak of purple in her white hair, and her sweet pose. She is in beautiful condition, and so she's my current favorite.
Pony News at Home: My nieces were excited to get back their cleaned and styled ponies. The ten year old was especially pleased to see how pretty their hair looked. My one regret is not taking 'before' and 'after' photos of some of the most improved Ponies.
Also I'm glad I got to borrow them, because having so many gave me an opportunity to try various techniques. As convenient as sponge rollers are, for the most part they aren't narrow enough to get a curl that hangs neatly beside the pony. Best tool so far for curling? Crayola markers.
Update: Staring at the picture, it might be Seaspray and not Daybreak. Either way I'm happy. Also in the bunch is Bowtie and Guava Lava, and Strawberry Reef. Ultimately the fact that Waterfire, Bowtie, Strawberry Reef, and Guava Lava are in a group means they came from the Surf Shop set. Seaspray/Daybreak is still the out lier in this case. We'll see when she arrives.
