Doll Sized Finds–4th of July edition!

Happy 4th of July everyone!  I hope the weather cooperates for everyone who has outdoor activities planned.  I have a special doll sized finds that keeps in the spirit of the day.

Once in a while we love to get stuff from Edible Arrangements.  I wish it wasn’t so darned expensive though!  And honestly, I don’t need anymore vases.  So you can imagine when I was making plans to get my hubby an arrangement from there for Father’s Day and I saw this:


Unfortunately it doesn’t have a grate, but I’m sure I can come up with something.

Ryan is excited to try it out!


It’s a little bit short, but it makes a great fire pit.  Hmm…

A trip to the Dollar Tree yielded some fun hats for celebrating.  One each in red, white and blue!


Ryan had a bit of fun modeling one for the camera!

The last item isn’t holiday themed, but a good deal.  I was in Costco and came across this for all of $9.99!

I’ve seen a lot of criticism for this book at the full price, but at the reduced price, I think I can overlook that it’s not a full comprehensive guide to all things AG.  Yes, there are things missing, but you can’t debate the fact that the quality of the photos and the overall book is very good.  I think it would make a great gift at this price for some little girl who loves AG.

I didn’t get a photo of it, but the cover comes off and unfolds to be a giant poster.  Clever idea, and I can’t think of too many little girls who love AG that wouldn’t be delighted to get their hands on this book.  This big girl was, and even happier to get it for such a great price.

  1. Is your gravatar new? It’s cute! Love the grill! I never had an edible arrangement before.
    Glad you had some down time for the 4th!

    • No, that’s the same one I’ve had for a while. Too much going on to change it!

      I’d never seen an Edible Arrangement until my mother-in-law passed away, someone my brother-in-law worked with sent it and I thought it was such a cool idea. They are kind of pricey though, so it’s definitely a “special occasion” thing around here. We got another huge one for Christmas one year from a co-worker of my husband’s, and we’ve bought a couple of small ones. They are fun though, you just have to be prepared to eat a lot of fruit in a short period of time! (and have space in the fridge)
