Thrift Store Find- Flo Jo Florence Griffith Joyner Doll-Update!

Hey Gang!
I find a doll at the thrift store that I have kinda wanted.  I say kinda
because there are dolls that I am saving for (mostly IT male dolls), doll that hoping will
come up for sale ( mostly IT dolls). That I will put in my cart if I find them at a
thrift store.  Flo Jo is in that last category.

So, Flo Jo-Florence Griffith Joyner-the women!

Florence Delorez Griffith-Joyner (Born Florence Delorez Griffith December 21, 1959-September 21, 1998), also known as Flo-Jo, was an American track and field athlete. She is considered the fastest woman of all time based on the fact that the world records she set in 1988 for both the 100m and 200m still stand. During the late 1980s she became a popular figure in international track and field because of her record-setting performances and flashy personal style. Griffith Joyner was born and raised in California. She was athletic from a young age. She attended California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLS) where she participated in track and field. Griffith Joyner qualified for the 100m 1980 Olympics, although she did not actually compete due to the U.S. boycott. She made her Olympic debut four years latter winning a silver medal. At the 1988 U.S. Olympic trials, Griffith set a new world record in the 100 m. She went on to win three gold medals at the 1988 Olympics. Shortly after the 1988 games, she abruptly retired. After her retirement from athletics, Griffith Joyner remained a pop culture figure though endorsement deals, acting and designing. She died in her sleep as the result of an epileptic seizure in 1998 at the age of 38.

Know for her long and decorated finger nails and....
 Flashy and sexy track outfits!

The doll!

There looks like there was only one version of the doll released.  The one
in the outfit above.  There were fashions for the doll but I don't have any of 
those to show.  You can see some on the  Black Doll Collecting post!

The doll I purchase from the thrift store was nude. But I found this outfit in my
stash of clothing that seem to suit her.

 This outfit belongs to Hot Skatin' Barbie! 
Thanks for your info Treesa of Fashion Doll Memoirs!
 She has an interesting face. It is a kind face.

 Her nails!

Since I Can't Find Babysitter Kevin....

Hey Gang!

Since I can't find Babysitter Kevin....let look at the original Kevin!
You might remember I have one doll Kevin in Johnston who is a slacker!
He is always late for school!

He is hanging out in Johnston up at some friend on Facebook and Twitter!
 He is doing this instead of doing his paper for class!
 He has a twin brother who is straight as an arrow!
Who has come to check on his progress on his progress!
 Although they are the same doll, they have slightly different face screening.
 The paint on their hair is slightly different too!
 They are looking, to me, in different directions too!
 Cody is looking straight on and Kevin...
Seems to be looking a little to the left.

Since, I have four of these dolls,  I did a paint job on one of them to give him
a different look!  I had been looking at the blonde doll on line and monitoring
the price (which is what I do when I am thinking about a purchase!) of a blonde
doll,  when I thought I could just paint one of the ones I have! So that is what
I did!
I painted his hair and eyes.  I really like the way he turned out.
 His name is Frank.  He is meeting Cody who will be working on a science
project with him.
Frank wasn't there with the project was assigned.  This is their first time meeting.
 I think they all will be heading for the library for some research.
Cody and Frank are ready to go but somehow I think Kevin is going to find a
way out of going!
What I will do with the last Kevin...maybe a redhead.

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Philly Flower Show!

Hey Gang

I'm going to take a little break from doll posting for the Phila. Flower Show!
I will post some pictures from the show!  The show is really nice this year!
So if you get a chance, you should come.  The Theme is The Wonders of
Water. and it feels like a rainforest!

I judge at the show and judged yesterday and will judge again on Thursday.
My husband and I entered the show and thus far we have won five ribbons!
I am also a Merit Badge Counselor for the Scouts (Boy, Girl and Club).  And
this is the seventh year the Scouts I work with have entered the show! They
have entered twenty-five plants this year which is about two plants for every
child. Hope to see you there!

Thanks For Looking!
