This Offer is for One Vintage Barbie Ponytail Makeover.

A Day for your Vintage Ponytail at Heartwhisper's Barbie Retreat.

Dear heartwhisper,
this is not a question, as i have purchased your beautiful dolls before and adore them...but i just have to compliment you on the beautiful job you do with restoring vintage barbies, not only bringing back their original freshness and beauty, but bringing them back to life...some people prefer having a doll which has not been retouched, and of course it is the ultimate to find an original #1, 2, 3, 4, and later models in a nrfb condition...but your beautiful and sensitive talent in restoring these dolls brings me back to being a little girl opening that barbie doll box and beholding a treasure which one could never find today...just wanted to say thank you and i'd buy every one of your dolls if i could...wish you could teach me how to restore them and recapture the special and intricate qualities of the world of barbie for those of us who enjoy it...
Mardie, I would like to thank you for another beautiful makeover. Your talent again, amazes me. You are a true professional in every sense. I think my number 3 is so beautiful and pristine, thanks to your expert restoration she looks like new. I look foward to many more make-overs in the future, since I have learned that restoration makes the Barbies not only lovely again, but helps to preserve them. It is great to know someone I can truly trust with my dolls and have confidence they will arrive back to me safely and carefully packaged. I appreciate the passion you have for the restoration of Barbies, as it is shown in your beautiful work! Many thanks
Oh Mardie,
This will be a prize to have. I love how she turned out. When she arrived from the person I bought her from she was "ok", but I wanted her to be rid of that home-attept at her sad looking makeup. Now she looks regal. The hair looks so much better from the picture shown. This is a Solo-in-the-Spotlight kind of girl now. That's how she'll be used, both for Solo & Enchanted Evening. She deserves only the best for this pretty, pretty girl.
Your talent is sheer artistry. What you do is of the greatest service and you deserve only high praise & many, many accolades. I'm thrilled. I could not be happier.
Thank you for my immaculate doll and for your great artistry. It's so nice to see that care in one's work still means something.
Before and After Photos
I am so grateful, lucky, and happy to have as many of them as I do---I am truly blessed and I know it! These dolls mean the world to me and I really feel very fortunate to have gotten as many of them as I have!  I can look at them and savor the beauties that you have so lovingly and beautifully restored! You really give them a new life, you know, and that is so wonderful. --can one ever have enough #4's or #5's---I don't think so! Take good care and have a terrific week, and a million thanks for all the beauties you have blessed me with, and the outfits too---TOTALLY AWESOME, like you!

Hi Mardie, I just want to let you know that the doll arrived safe and sound today. OMG---she is just absolutely EXQUISITE!!! I swear she is probably the PRETTIEST doll I have ever gotten! She is intensely beautiful---I have ALOT of dolls, and to be honest, this one is maybe my very favorite ever!!! I feel privileged to have her in my collection---I can hardly wait to see the other one! Anyway, I want to thank you again for the auction, the gorgeous doll, the great communication, and the very prompt shipping, all truly appreciated. Thanks for making this a really fun, easy, smooth, flawless, totally pleasant transaction. It has been PURE PLEASURE and I want you to know that I just absolutely ADORE this beautiful doll. The #4 ponytails are really my very favorite Barbies---they have a gorgeous face unlike any others! Have a great week and can't wait to deal with you again! 

Hi Mardie, I just want to thank you again for the 2 beautiful dolls that I received in the mail yesterday---they are truly works of art and you are without any doubt the best vintage Barbie restorationist! Your dolls are so pretty they almost make me cry when I see them---absolutely flawless beauty! --- another vision of lovlieness! Take good care. many thanks and much appreciation, 

My incredible box of dolls came today... I am truly in awe of your talent, mardie! The #4 brunette made me weak in the knees...she is so
gorgeous! But the #4 blonde with no face was the big shocker!  I
looked at her before and after photos many times...but until you hold
the doll in your hands...well, that's when the "Mardie miracle" sinks
in!!!  I could not have imagined how lovely she would become...never
in a million years! After all...she had no face!  So to see her so
perfect... so makes you cry with happiness!  But I honestly
can't believe how gorgeous the ponytail with the pink lips is in person.
There have been dolls that I have purchased from you that are so
much prettier in person...that the computer doesn't do them
justice...and this doll proves it! She is awesome!  I am so happy I
bought her...I don't have any ponytails who look like her...and her hair
is incredible!  What a box of dolls!!!!!!  I wish I could buy every one of
your dolls!  Thank you again for those fabulous dolls...

For several years now I have seen Mardie’s miraculous transformations on the older Barbie dolls and marveled at her finished product (actually drooled over them) - but shipping my doll off just kept stopping me…. What if she got lost?  I have had this doll since I was between 2nd & 3rd Grade – I had just had my tonsils removed and begged and pleaded for this doll.

Well, this year I took the plunge – my birthday present to myself – sent her to Mardie the first of November and she began working on her very quickly.  Over the years I had not dared to do much with my doll for fear of her losing more of her paint on her face – her toenails were already bare, and she had lost the polish on most of her fingernails.  Decades ago I had filled in her eyebrows and eyelashes with an old eyebrow pencil.  She had been displayed in one of my curio cabinets for years, but on closer examination I could tell she looked really sad.  Especially her hair!

Mardie received her and started working on her right away – giving me updates via E-Mail – when I saw pics of my doll with the eyebrow pencil removed, I was hit with the reality of her lack of paint on her face.  Then I saw Mardie’s pics of my doll with her clean body – her face repainted (her nostrils evened up, her eye makeup & eyebrows back on her), along with now polished nails and toenails – and her hair back in a beautiful pony tail - she is a new doll!  I was elated!

I was thrilled to pick her up from the post office – and see her in person!  What a wonderful miracle Mardie performed on my doll!  Just WOW!  Thank you so much Mardie – she is now gorgeous again!

Take the plunge and get your doll updated by Mardie!
