Room No. 4750 and 383

We are all sleeping together now. Yup, me, Joe, Gabe and David. Everything is moved but my bed. Everything is moved and nothing is put away.

I take that back. Today my friend Anne and I dusted David’s Star Wars stuff and put it up. And we organized books.Β  Guess what was packed in the Star Wars stuff? Strawberry Shortcake and she was complete with the Purple PieMan and about 6 other pals, including my faves Orange Blossom and Lemon Meringue.

Skye just sent me over these gorgeous shots. Love em….thank you!

And if you are room no. 4750 or 383 shoot Sam an email. She will need a pic of the tag somewhere that represents you, your town or a happy place. She will also need your address.Β Please put ROOM NO. in your subject line in your email to

Reading the comment about Halloween reminded me of the Strawberry Shortcake costume that I made for my daughter. She also got a strawberry shortcake house that year for Christmas. So glad she still has happy memories of playing with it.

Aww! Lemon Meringue was MY fave growing up!!! I dressed up as her for Halloween one year & I have been wanting to have my girls be Strawberry Shorcake & Lemon Merigue but can’t find a cute costume for Lemon Meringue! :0(

I had to literally LOL after reading your post. I was just telling my son last week about how when I was a little girl they had a Strawberry Shortcake contest to win a room filled with Strawberry Shortcake accessories. I told him how every day I would pray and wish that I would win!! That entry form with the photo of the room was so worn after a few months from looking at it everyday. Unfortunately I did not win, but I’m sure I wasn’t the only little girl wishing upon that star!! AHH-hh childhood memories!! Thank you to whoever brought up the smurfs another real favorite. My little ones enjoy watching the cartoon.(me too) I hope you make your new home a really WARM SPACE!!

Yay, congrats on your move! That was fast! We moved on Tuesday also & so I can totally relate to everything being here (YAY!) but nothing being put away…one box at a time!
Just got my order today, it was my first delivery at our new house!
Oh, and I love Strawberry Shortcake & the fact that she has made a come-back so my girls love her, too!

Bum-Bull-Bee - March 4, 2010 - 4:17 pm

How about Cherry Merry Muffins??? I had those and I think I still have the complete set. It had all the girls that smelled like cupcakes and they all came with a recipe card. Their home was a kitchen. LOVE all the flash backs! Man toys were awesome “Back in the day” as my daughter calls it. LOL I am barely ordering on the 15th and wish on a lucky star I get a room key. πŸ™‚ Love the pics. Denise, your clothes have a need for the spotlight! They are totally camera ready!

Ali - March 4, 2010 - 2:54 pm

Got my order last night- my Daughter absolutely LOVES the bird tank dress! She wanted to sleep in it last night and is wearing it again today. So happy to get a key- very cool. Looking forward to the next unveil! Thank you for this beautiful Spring collection. Hammond Bay + sunshine= good day!

Lil - March 3, 2010 - 10:32 pm

Your moving sounds exciting…

Sadly *-( and i say that with a heavy sign, Got my order in on the 1st day but im being told that i didn’t get a key and i was as excited about the key as my dd clothes 😎 I hope you plan on getting more πŸ™‚

Have fun with strawberry shortcake.. I just wonder, how long does she smell good?

Amy Langston - March 3, 2010 - 9:20 pm

HOLY MOLY!!!!….I received my first box of HB YUMMIES TODAY!! I can not wait to try all of it on my Hailey. Everything ROCKS!!!
The mossy willow is precious!!! OH MY and the TEES!!…SWEET!!
Thank you Denise!!
Aww…I love strawberry shortcake too. I actually had a GF growing up who looked just like her.

smalltownjenny - March 3, 2010 - 6:41 pm

My almost 4 yr old LOVES Strawberry Shortcake….even the DVD cases smell like berries. These photos are simply gorgeous!!!!!

luci - March 3, 2010 - 5:50 pm

I still have all my strawberry shortcake stuff. I got them for Christmas one year – ALL OF THEM. The room that the presents were in SMELLED. My sisters kept trying to put them in the closet, but I would cry and mom made them leave them under the tree. I must say – all of the flavors together was not that plesant. HA!!

Michelle - March 3, 2010 - 5:10 pm

I’m so jealous you found your Strawberry Shortcakes. I know mine are packed away in a Clinique makeup bag somewhere in my grandmas atttic. I want to find them so bad. I just bought my daughter her first one. She would love my old collection. I bet they still smell. I used to love to smell them…

christine - March 3, 2010 - 4:10 pm

Oh, Can not wait to see if I got everything in my order and a room key. The photos are fantastic!

Emily M - March 3, 2010 - 2:49 pm

These pictures are so cute. Skye is to photography what you are to clothing design!! Looking at the picture of the Maybel suit with the Hammond Bay hat makes me want to kick myself for not getting it!!! Looks like I will be making a third order – HA!!!

tree*head - March 3, 2010 - 2:34 pm

Oh how I used to love sniffing Strawberry Shortcake and friends! That and playing with my smurfs-ahhh…OOO I so hope to get a room key! Still anxiously waiting for my HB order – I feel like I am the last one – oh the anticipation!!

Chelle Belle / Alchemist - March 3, 2010 - 2:17 pm

Got my order yesterday and I absolutely love it. As expected, my daughter is twirling and reveling in her new pretties. I got the mossy willow for me and love love love it. Where are those dark blue ruffles Sam is wearing in the picture? Coming soon I hope.

RE the room keys: Is it safe to say that all of us MJC addicts are in a metaphorical hotel together? I’m excited I actually got a key!

Denise, when the whole family is sleeping in the same bed (usually with the big dog, too) we call it “Packing Out” as in a wolf pack.

Day to the Oh - March 3, 2010 - 1:56 pm

Skye’s pix are GORGE!!! Can I tell you that it makes me feel SO good that Skye and I have the same taste? That last outfit is EXACTLY how I put it together at my trunk show. Everyone thought I was so smart, but obviously not the only one! πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait to get my order! Hurry up Man in brown!!!

My Little Carolina Girl - March 3, 2010 - 1:54 pm

Strawberry shortcake collection of dolls was great. Their smell reminds me of Strach n Sniff stickers my teachers would give me in grade school. Oh, to be young again. What a simple life when little things meant so much. Thanks for the glimpse back to the past. MJC rocks!

Deb - March 3, 2010 - 10:25 am

Received my Hammond bay order on Monday! Let me tell you my daughter LOVED everything! She HAD to put on the Raven skirt and dance Yourself Silly tank right then and there, even though there is snow outside, she wore it the rest of the night and gave me grief when it was time to get into her PJ’s. She always loves all her MJ, but this time she was Over the Moon with Excitement! Thank you! It makes mornings so much easier.

On a Strawberry Shortcake note, my daughter has the new ones and cannot stop playing with them. Retro is in. Rainbow Brite is making a comeback too.

Mary R. - March 3, 2010 - 8:53 am

Such a fun ‘contest’. :o) Love the pix, too!

Erin "pancake makers mom" Spencer - March 3, 2010 - 8:46 am

I wonder if this means all the keys were given out on the first day???? I ordered in the first week but probably not soon enough…. well still fun, let the games begin!!!

On the retro front…my daughter is huge into the smurfs right now..made the mistake of getting her season 1 on dvd this christmas now she wants a smurfs bday party. I have searched the web from A-Z and no smurf party stuff. Lots of crazy people with websites showing their collectable smurf stuff…who are these people?? Its 1 thing to save childhood memories but to devote a website to your smurfs is another thing!! So im getting the creative jucies flowing so i can put on a smurfs bday party for my baby girl!!!

vanessa diel - March 3, 2010 - 8:45 am

Love all of these. Just soo precious. Can’t wait to receive my spring clothing.

Jackie F. - March 3, 2010 - 8:00 am

I can’t wait for my order to arrive to see if I’m a winner!
I wished that my mom saved my huge Strawberry Shortcake collection!
I loved it so much! I even had Strawberry Shortcake wallpaper in my room growing up. I love smelling the dolls. Do yours still have their yummy smell???

a lovell - March 3, 2010 - 7:36 am

My mom still has all of our Strawberry Shortcake dolls in an old Strawberry Shortcake metal lunch box. They are all missing at least one shoe and/or accessory but the the box still has a nice aroma when you open it. I don’t like the new SS style…I love the classic. The grandkids seem to prefer the classic as well, over the new style.

workingnine2five - March 3, 2010 - 7:15 am

All this talk about Strawberry Shortcake dolls brings me back to kindergarten. So I was that kid that had them in a shadow box hanging on her wall just above the bed. Apparently I was missing one and a girl on my bus had just the one I needed to complete my collection. So knowing that I had to pay for things that I wanted I went into my Dad’s secret money jar in his underwear drawer and pulled out a green bill to buy my very own Orange Blossom. The very next day the girl’s mom called my mom and said she could not accept $50.00 for this little figurine….hey I thought it was an even trade. Needless to say my Dad gave me a strong (yet gentle for a kindergartner) talkn to. Those were the days πŸ™‚

byetheways - March 3, 2010 - 6:26 am

The new Strawberry Shortcake has traded her spearmint tights for jeans…she and Apple Dumplin need a room key so they can switch back to the old school style! Otherwise, it’s Sour Grapes!!!!!

Lauri - March 3, 2010 - 5:58 am

The question is did they still smell good?

Lisa M - March 3, 2010 - 5:40 am

Oh how funny! I used to have all of the Strawberry Shortcake characters… they were my favorites growing up!

April W. - March 3, 2010 - 5:05 am

Mmm! Did the Strawberry Shortcake dolls still have their berry good smell? I LOVE the photos! I bought all those pieces and can’t WAIT to layer them like that on my Emmy! πŸ˜€

Amanda Keeys - March 3, 2010 - 3:01 am

How gorgeous are Skye’s photos <3 Orange Blossom was always my favourite. Have you seen the "modernised" versions? Soooo not as cute.

Kate S. - March 2, 2010 - 11:04 pm

I seem to remember liking little Apple Dumpling the best. I really have this urge to go dig them out of my mom’s basement so I…err…Anna can play with them. πŸ™‚

Linda - March 2, 2010 - 9:58 pm

Yeah! Let the games begin! How exciting. Congrats to the winners. And I love the outfit pictured – thrilled because I have all three pieces and they look so cute together.

shelley - March 2, 2010 - 9:34 pm

i got my hammond bay today and i’m in love… and i was so excited- sam packed it… it made my day-i feel like i know her… HA!

For the love of HB - March 2, 2010 - 9:32 pm

Just dropping in to say we LOVE our HB! I think we are going to need this collection for the next 3 years … Love the colors and it looks GREAT on the baby!
