... but here's a teensy update.
I knew I'd be bad at keeping up this blog but I didn't know how bad! it's currently early January 2016 and I last updated April 2015. :( As a small apology to any hypothetical readers, here is my lovely lady that came in the mail today, plus the one pony I got for Xmas!
Lemon Drop has been pretty high on my wishlist for a long time <3 I've had trouble finding an auction for her (bc I'm lazy I tend to just go to eBay instead of directly with other collectors) that is a decent price and also has a matched head/body. This girl tends to have discoloration mis-matching. I have seen so many auctions for her on eBay and Etsy where she's a fair price but with a differently-colored head from her body! She just arrived today and tbh I had totally forgotten that I bought her, so she was such a blessing for me today. I'm feeling pretty crappy today and I admittedly cried when I opened her.

I don't know if you've ever bought from spoosh* on eBay but I've always been very very happy with the ponies I've bought from him! And I've gotten a fair bit in the last decade. The prices are possibly arguably a bit high but not for my tastes -- I'm always willing to pay more for nice ponies! And his auctions are always so reliable! I know for a fact I've bought my G1 Parasol and G3 Sunny Daze I from him (I'm sure there's more that I forget) and they were exactly as described, so I recommend his auctions!
Anyway, Lemon Drop is from spoosh* and I am so, so happy with her. <3
Mirror Mirror is another beauty that I've always admired. Something about her soft coloration has always appealed to me. I think (??) she's the only magic message pony that I've really desired. Her symbol is in a state that is mostly the default but does show a bit of the princess in the mirror. It doesn't show well in this picture and I haven't tested it with my thumb, but if I apply a fair bit of auto-contrast you can see the princess!
|can you see the princess hidden in the mirror...?|
Okay, admittedly it works nicer on Instagram.
I haven't checked her non-display side, which I've only just learned has a witch instead of princess! I will have to get properly edited shots of both her symbols.
I really want to work on growing my G1 collection in 2016. I've been collecting since at least 2004 and am still lacking in a lot of basic wishlist ponies. So hopefully I'll grow my collection a good amount this coming year :)
