P.B.D.S. Clients – #0063 & #0064
From the collection of Connie!
All dolls have secret lives as we all know. Here’s a peek into theirs…
Hello everyone and thanks as always for dropping in!
This weeks featured clients both hail from that great city by the bay, San Francisco!
Best friends Esther and Helen made a holiday out of it and took the train down the coast for a bit of shopping and sight-seeing here in Los Angeles for a few days. Now not only had they made appointments at Pink Bubbles Doll Spa for an upcoming special occasion, but they were also on a mission. You see, the girls are collectors, something I’m sure none of us can relate to at all…or am I wrong?!
“Oh Norman, what have you done with the money for the new tires?!”
Long-time fans of the legendary Judy Garland, these two gal pals make a yearly pilgrimage to Hollywood, hunting for treasures to add to their ever-growing Judy collections. Local movie memorabilia shops can sometimes hold a hidden Garland gem or at the very least, an unseen 8 x 10 portrait of their favorite star!
Of course they always visit Judy’s footprints at Grauman’s Chinese Theater and never fail to continue their fun tradition of having their picture taken standing in front of the gates of M.G.M. Studios every year!
Their visit to the spa was of course also Judy related, how could it not be! The girls excitedly told me they had tickets to see “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” starring the fabulous Connie Champagne as Judy Garland when they returned home and wanted to look their very best…just in case they got the chance to meet Ms. Champagne after her show. Who knows, they might even get to have their picture taken with the talented songstress and if they did, they promised to send me a copy!
Still chatting excitedly about Ms. Champagne’s upcoming show, the girls started their beauty appointments with a trip to the back with Daffy who assisted them with their Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body of course!
While we wait, lets take a peek at what they looked like before they began…
And here’s Helen:
When the girls returned I began with Helen as I instructed Daffy to give Esther a special treatment for her darkened skin-tone.
A reset of Helen’s brunette bobbed hairstyle was done and I followed with fresh applications of eyebrows and needed touch-ups of her shadow and ridges. Colorful lips and a kiss of blush brought much-needed color to her pretty face!
With the lightening treatment on Esther’s complexion a success, I re-styled her hair in the classic Swirl hairdo she’s worn for years…and why not, it suits her beautifully! I followed with all needed make-up repairs but chose to leave her brows alone to keep them original. A pretty yellow hair bow and a pair of “Safety-First!” pearl earrings from Beatrice’s counter were the finishing touches. Of course both ladies had their finger and toe nails done by Madge!
I’d say both Esther and Helen’s trip to Pink Bubbles was a triumph! As they gathered their coats and said their goodbye’s to the staff, I shared in their excitement in seeing the upcoming show celebrating their favorite star in song and admit I felt a bit jealous! As they settled their bill with Vera, I wished them both a safe journey home.
They promised to try to get me an autograph from Ms. Champagne if they could as I too am a long-time fan of Judy and truly appreciate any artist who keeps the magic of Ms. Garland alive for us all to enjoy! The girls didn’t disappoint either, because within a few days I received a gorgeous lobby poster from the performance signed in person to me from Connie Champagne and I just love it! I really look forward to seeing these gals again next year here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!
Here’s a lovely candid of our Pink Bubbles clients Ms. Esther Smith & Ms. Helen Lawson at home sent in by Connie! Don’t they both look gorgeous!
Till next time P.B.D.S. readers, please enjoy this clip of the wonderful Connie Champagne as Judy Garland!
A champagne toast to Connie for sending her dolls to Pink Bubbles and for sharing her marvelous talent with us all! And of course another toast to Judy Garland, thank you Judy for all the joy you’ve brought to your fans lives these many, many years. You’ll never be forgotten!
