Hello from Fairy-tale County Hesse, Germany
« on: October 30, 2019, 07:09:11 AM »
Hello everyone!

My Name is Stefanie, but I go as Pinacolada (or Pina) in the Pony Community. I've just turned 37.
I live in a small town in the beautiful Reinhardswald. Our region is known as Fairy-Tale County Hesse, cause the Brothers Grimm lived around here and many of their fairy-tales have their origin here.
I'm working shift system in the kitchen of an old people's home, which is also a rehabilitation centre.
One of my passions (next to ponies) are books! I love to read, especially fantasy. I prefer English books, but of course I also read German ones.

I've started collecting ponies in 2005. My childhood ponies had been living at my grandma's home for years, but when she died, I picked them up and took them with me. This reminded me, how much I loved them. As a child, my best friend and I always played ponies. We both owned all the Sunshine Ponies (there were only four in Germany), apart from Beachball.
When I picked up my ponies, I had just discovered ebay, and decided, that I will now fulfill a childhood wish and finally get Beachball. I entered her German Name (Strandperle), but found nothing. I didn't know her English name then, so I searched for "Mein Kleines Pony" (My little Pony). And that's where it started.  :biggrin:

There were huge amounts of ponies on ebay and I was flabbergasted. I didn't find my Beachball, but I found an auction for a So Soft pony. I've never seen anything like her, so I grabbed her. When she arrived, I was in love again. So, it's thanks to So Soft Cupcake, that I started collecting. XD Of course, the So Softs are now one of my favourite sets.

I'm an active member in the German Meinkleinespony Forum for many years now. Some of you might now me from there.  :)
I've been to a few Uk PonyCons , the last two years as a stallholder. You might have seen me there with Team Tropical (hey, AnnaPommes!). I'm Pina's Precious. I specialise in sculpting tiny polymer clay ponies, sitting in nuts or shells. If you're curious, you can find my little ones here: https://www.instagram.com/pinasprecious/?hl=en

I collect all generations, but prefer G1, since they are my childhood ponies. I also love customs, they are something very special, cause someone put a lot of work and love into creating something new.
My favourite G1 is of course Pinacolada. She's one of my childhood ponies, and together with Tootie Tails she came everywhere with me.
My favourite G4 is Princess Luna.

I'm glad, that I'm finally here, even when it took me some years. ^^;

If you have any questions, let me know, I'm happy to answer. :)

Welcome to the arena! That such a cool place to live! Fairy tails were such a big part of so many childhoods. G-1 is such a beautiful set to collect! I love your story about beachball! I bet it was so satisfying once you finally found her! I love how the sunshine ponies have that special hair color effect in the sun. See you around the forums!
Happy collecting!  :happy:
