Hey everybody, I bet you’ve been wondering if I was coming back?! Never fear, I am here!!! When I made that last post about the fact I was going to be missing, I certainly didn’t expect it to be this long. It’s been a crazy few weeks though! I was fighting a sinus infection, went to Mexico, been doing a lot of photography work and started playing at open mics with a friend. And then as if things weren’t busy enough, Miss Laney got sick. I lost an entire week dealing with that, but I’m happy to report she is doing okay now. Same thing as before if you’ve been following me for a while, her gallbladder decided to give her grief. Which ended up giving me grief. 😉 She’s on the road to recovery now.
So–it’s time for a “new and improved” version of Doll Sized Finds!!! I haven’t done one of these in ages because I really haven’t been thrift store shopping much lately. And I’m calling this “new and improved” because I’m going to share things from other places this time around.
At a recent trip to the Dollar Tree, I saw a few things that I thought were very interesting. I didn’t buy 2 of the 3, but I did take pics so I could share them with you!!
First up–this cool little pool table!
I thought the scale on this was pretty good, although the table might be a bit small. Still fun though if you are doing a game room scenario! (Sorry for the blurry pic, I really suck at taking them with my phone. And I even got a new phone with a better camera, duh.)
Then there were these mini-clothespins:
Let me just tell you, if I didn’t already have a bunch of these, I would have been buying these. I didn’t get nearly as many in a package and I paid a bit more than $1 for them!!! So cute if you are doing a laundry room scene. And I’ve found they are handy for other things as well. 😉
And last, but certainly not least, this cool little fan!!
It’s battery operated (batteries not included, 2 AA) and let me just tell you, this thing puts out a decent amount of air for all the bigger it is. I actually did purchase this item, not just for a doll prop, but also for my dog! It’s a great way to keep air circulating on a really hot day for her as she lays in her crate without a chance of fire should she knock it over or something. If you look at the photo closely, you can see it comes in a variety of colors too.
I did recently have the opportunity to do a little thrift store shopping. I’m being much more particular about what I buy now because I am at Defcon 5 levels around here on doll stuff. I’m hopefully going to do a little bit of thinning out over the summer, but until then, I’m being very good. American Girl probably thinks I’ve died.
But…I did come across something that had to come home with me.
The My Life As sofa!! I’d considered the set that includes this before, but there were too many pieces that I wasn’t all that wild about. And it was right around $30. My price at a thrift store: $7.98! Score! Always good to get a good deal on exactly what you wanted instead of spending more money on things you didn’t.
Mimi likes it too:
That’s it for this edition of Doll Sized Finds! Have you found anything awesome in your shopping travels?
Stay tuned, in the coming weeks I’m hoping to do some reviews on products, just running a bit behind.
