For me, ever since the last convention, I’ve been trying & trying & trying to get Center of Attention Poppy. This became a full-fledged obsession after the Forget Me Not’s were released because they didn’t have the eyes & makeup the way I prefer. So I knew I had to try even harder to get this Poppy to complete my collection that contains all the Poppy’s with “eyes” the way I like them.
One day I noticed that someone I know posted for a trade. She had been trying hard to get a certain doll and even though this doll was one of my favs too, I knew I had to let her go to finally get my Poppy. It was a hard goodbye, with tears, blubbering and the whole nine yards, but I did it. I parted with a favorite to get a “Holy Grail”. Today she arrived late in the evening (sorry for the dark shots) and I just wanted to take a quick shot of her!
