The Big Dreamer Polls

Today's polls are focused on the two most expensive recent releases.... dun, dun, dunnnnnn.

Even if we did have all the money in the world
to buy the carriage, horse, and ice cream parlor, 
we don't have anywhere to put these huge things. 

 They are both really fun and beautiful sets - 
but how much would we use them? 

 How about you guys? 

 Do you want one of these items? 
Both of them? 

Do you own them already?

 Would you put them on display? Actually use them? 

 Any deep thoughts? 

 Feel free to answer the polls above, 
and the second one even allows you to put in an "other" answer, heehee.

The appearance of what is essentially a Central Park carriage and horse
from American Girl is either ironic or poignant.
I am not sure which.

New York City is moving to ban carriage horses in the city, probably by next year:

One of the main reasons is horse poop.
Manhattanites are tired of smelling it from their $600 billion penthouses...

(^ Yes, this is an actual book.
With Amazon reviews like "Disappointed by the smells.")

So maybe the American Girl carriage and horse
is a small way to own a bit of New York City history for yourself,
but without the horse poopie smell.

You'll just have to use your imagination for that part. ;-)

Yesterday's polls are here for your voting pleasure:

Wednesday's polls:

I am sorry for all the questions, but my sister just finished two outfits for the theme since she really liked it, one to enter and one not to enter.
I was wondering if you would be able to enter two outfits, or just one per person.

Only one outfit entry per person per FDC.

But she can certainly hold on to pictures of the other outfit to enter in a different FDC!

OK! That is what I thought, but she wanted me to check.
