 All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into one of them!

 I admire a gal with a dream… especially when that dream is opening up your own business. After all, mine was to open the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa and here we are!

My friend Betty’s dream was owning her own restaurant and tonight hers was finally coming true. In fact “Betty’s Drive-Thru” was set to have its grand-opening in just a few hours when she came rushing in to the spa. “Honey, I hope you can squeeze me in cause I’m running outta time and one of my waitresses just called in sick! Imagine that, on her first night!” she told me. “Can I put this in your window while I’m here?” she said holding up the “Waitress Wanted” sign. “I gotta find a girl quick and I can’t be in two places at once! I may have to interview and hire her in curlers!”


“Sure thing Betty!” I said. While she placed the sign in the window, (I’m not even going to think about what passerby’s would say, scratching their heads..after all a waitress needed at Pink Bubbles?!)  I started preparing my station for the job ahead.


Poor Betty, she’d been going a mile-a-minute for months readying the restaurant, and it was taking a toll on her appearance. She wanted to look great tonight and I had just under two hours to get the order right!

The first thing I recommended from our menu to Betty was a relaxing Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. She needed some time to just relax, clear her head and let us wait on her for a bit.

When Daffy brought her back from her treatment, she took a seat in my chair and I got to work. Her hair was just a mess, I don’t think she’d run a comb through it in weeks, she didn’t have the time! After a good washing and some conditioner, I de-tangled it and began the styling. I pulled her hair up and back, securing it into a smooth ponytail and then curled the ends. I then addressed the messy curls of her bangs. Now, her hair looks great!

Her beautiful blue eyes finished, I mixed and applied a pretty coral shade of lipstick. I also gave her a touch of blush as she was a little pale. She looked years younger! I had Beatrice bring in her tray of “Safety-First!” earrings, (as if you could stop her!) and she selected the perfect pair.


All the while, Betty kept her eye nervously on the door, waiting for someone to notice the sign…but unfortunately, no one did. “Well, your ready to go!” I said as I turned her to the mirror. “You’re gonna knock em’ dead tonight Betty, I just know it!” Giving herself one last look, she said “I just hope to get through it. I guess I’m gonna have to pull triple duty tonight, owner, manager and waitress!” She then walked over and pulled her sign from the window.


“You know what Betty? You’re going to enjoy your big night as the proud owner only! I’ve done my fair share of waiting tables and if you’ll have me, I’m happy to help tonight! Look, I’m already wearing the right shoes!” I said pointing down to my no-nonsense white ortho’s. We both laughed! “Your hired Honey…your a real doll!” she said giving me a big hug. “Dinner’s on me…and by the way, you get to keep your own tips!”

The proud new owner of “Betty’s Drive – Thru” shines as bright as the spotlights outside greeting her hungry customers! A Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body and full hair and make-up service has made Betty as fresh as the home-made apple pies on tonight’s menu!

The Girl Most Likely!

All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into one of them!

Here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa, we’re often asked to wipe away years of wear and tear from the faces and hairdo’s of our clients. As a-matter-of-fact, turning backs the hands of time is our business! Take for instance the requests of our next spa guest, Marjorie.

Everyone knew a girl like Marjorie in High School…she was the popular girl, the cheerleader, teacher’s pet and more than likely voted “Queen of the Prom!”

On that final day of High School, when she pulled away from the parking lot in that new convertible she got as a graduation gift from her parents, you just knew she was off to begin her fabulous future. Admit it, you were a tad jealous…I know I was!

All of those wonderful things actually did happen for our Marjorie. She had a wonderful life indeed! She graduated college, eventually married her “Campus Hero” and settled into a lovely Dream House. The happy years just drifted by.

But no one, not even Marjorie, escapes the passing of the years. And the day she opened her mailbox and found out her High School reunion was just around the corner, she decided she had better try to pull herself together! As you can imagine, girls like Marjorie have the added pressure of living up to everyone’s memories of her. Being voted  “Girl Most Likely…” comes back to haunt you in the end! In fact, she was “most likely” going to be the girl scrutinized the closest by her classmates. And that’s where Pink Bubbles comes in!


Still a lovely girl all these years later, I agreed with her that we could still make some improvements for that evenings reunion. She wanted to look her best, so I advised her it’s always good to start with our Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body, and she agreed. Daffy made sure Marjorie was well taken care of while I prepared my station. When she returned, I washed, conditioned and re-set her hair, eliminating the dreaded “frizzies!”


Happy with her hair, I got to work refreshing her make-up. Her brows, lids and lips were restored to their former glory and with the assistance of Madge, her finger and toenail polish matched the red shade of her lips. Our jobs complete, I finally turned her to the mirror to show her the results and I swear I saw a sparkle in her eyes she didn’t have when she first came in! Looking at her now, I couldn’t imagine her being any more lovely that she was at that very moment!


  I asked her what she planned on wearing that evening and a mischievous smile spread across her face. “You know, I tried on my old prom dress yesterday and I’m proud to say, it still fits!” Of course, with her figure, I already assumed it did! “Wouldn’t it be a hoot to show up in it!” she laughed. “Honey,” I said, “You still got the face and the figure, but do yourself a big favor, forget the dress! Your pushing your luck as it is with those broads!”


Picture1caAn “Enchanted Evening” awaits Christine’s lovely doll! She’s managed to go back in time with the help of the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa staff. A Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body, followed by hair and make-up treatments made this gal “most likely” to re-take her throne as “Queen of the Prom!” once again!

Thank you Marjorie and Christine for visiting us here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa…come back again real soon!

“Keepin’ It Fresh” Since 1963!

All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into one of them!

Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than a stale sandwich! Here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa our staff takes turns one day a week and brings in lunch for the other girls. It breaks up lunch-packing monotony and gives us all more variety. Since there are five of us here; myself, Vera, Beatrice, Madge and Daffy, we have five lunches covered with only one day to figure it out on our own. Friday’s are Daffy’s day to provide and though she tries hard, it’s hit or miss to say the least!

Today, Daffy’s lunch menu consisted of Devils Food chicken spread on rye bread, cantaloupe slices and Dr. Pepper. For desert, Hostess Snow Balls, you know, the hot pink coconut marshmallow cakes with the creamy middle. Poor Daffy, I hope she finds a husband who can cook…for his sake! Besides the clashing tastes of our lunchtime bounty, the rye bread was stale. Not because it wasn’t fresh, but the wax paper opened up and the sandwiches got to air out since the early morning hours.

Why am I rattling on about stale sandwiches you may wonder? Because it leads me to Carol, my next spa client! Carol’s a real doll, not to mention our local Tupperware lady. As a matter of fact it was Carol who offered me escape from adding Daffy’s snowball snack cake to the churning ingredients fighting in my stomach from lunch!

Carol came rushing into the spa to set up for the Tupperware party slated for 7:00 that evening. Why is there going to be a Tupperware party at Pink Bubbles you may wonder? Because frankly, I wanted those adorable hot pink drinking cups with the embedded silver glitter I was offered as a hostess gift! As a bonus, I also thought it would be a great way to meet the ladies of the area, you know, the ones who just might make an appointment with us in the future!

tupperware0410“Tupperware parties, the only place a lady is allowed to “burp” in public! ”

With only a few hours to set up, Carol really needed to reserve some time in my chair as well! Always well-groomed, I’ve never seen her in such a state of disarray. Running a house and business on the side can really take its toll apparently! She was desperate for a quick wash, tease & set before the party and luckily for her, I’m also in the business of “keepin’ it fresh!” The harried hostess with a head for business needed that same head transformed, but quick. Let’s face it, she wasn’t going to make a very good impression, not to mention many sales with her customers looking this way!


She started off with a relaxing Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Refreshed, she had her Bubble hairdo washed, set and styled. I also freshened up her make-up by touching up her brows, eyes and beautiful full lips. Madge gave her a Mani & Pedi in exchange for a generous mixing bowl discount!


 The girls here on the staff are staying after work to attend Carol’s Party. We’ve all decided to chip in and surprise Daffy with her first set of Tupperware, the sandwich keepers! Hopefully it won’t be long before Carol gets them in!

By the way, here’s Carol now! Let’s get the party started!

DSC04899I think it’s safe to whip out your sales book now Carol, you look as fresh as last nights lemon pie, stored in the pink Tupperware pie caddy found on page 13 of this months catalog!

Please enjoy Carol’s before & after photos below!



Picture61Carol is now ready to take orders! She invested some extra time before her party to enjoy a little pampering! She started with our Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for face & Body. Her hair was washed, styled and set. Special attention was given to her eyes, giving them a less “startled” look! Luscious lips were the final touch to get the party started!

Thank you Carol and Cathy for visiting us here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa! Come back again real soon!
