Etsy Find: Nuclear Needle Arts

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know I love Etsy.  And I especially love discovering a new Etsy seller!  I’m a big believer in supporting small business too, so to me, Etsy is a win/win.  I recently purchased an adorable set of pj’s from an Etsy seller I hadn’t tried before, and I wanted to share my thoughts on them with you!

I’m a sucker for doll pajamas, and I have a bunch of them.  When I saw these online, I was immediately interested and favorited them.  Finally I couldn’t stand it anymore, I just had to have them!  So glad I did too, they are adorable.

Doesn’t Jenny look adorable in these? The set included the top and bottoms. Both pieces are very well made and fit perfectly. I love the design on the shirt!  In case you can’t read it, it says “Wakey, wakey, eggs ‘n bakey”.  🙂

The material for the bottoms couldn’t be anymore ideal:

The shirt closes in the back with Velcro and the bottoms are pull on style with an elastic waist.

The shop I purchased this set from is Nuclear Needle Arts.  Kelly offers a wide variety of doll clothes to fit multiple sizes of dolls as well as other items.  I was very impressed with all of the different items she offered, she does vintage style clothing as well as shoes.  Looking for doll sized shoe lasts?  She has those too!

Be sure to check out her shop, so many fun things to look at.  I know I will be stopping by to shop again!

Doll Sized Finds–A bit of this, that and the other!

Time for some awesome doll sized finds guys!  I’ve been collecting these items over the past few weeks and decided it was about time to share some of them!

Loved this emoji themed clip on and thought it would be adorable on a doll bed. I very carefully clipped off the part that was holding the clip on. I think I got this at Target, but I’m not 100% positive, sorry! If I remember correctly it was around $2

Target also has these cool little bag clip ons, great for holding change or lip balm. They have them in several styles and colors, and vary in price, but all of the ones I have come across have been $8 or less.

Dollar General had this cute little container of Vaseline Lip balm for $2. This is the perfect size for your dolls bathroom. And the lip balm isn’t bad either!

Dollar Tree has these adorable owl shaped lip balm containers. How can you beat $1?! I thought it would make an awesome decoration for in one of the doll rooms. And what is it about lip balm containers being the perfect size for doll house accessories?

Also at Dollar Tree, I ran across these individual sized salt and pepper shakers.  If you read Brandy’s Happy Home, you may recall seeing her use these as crystal drinking glasses (with a few modifications).  I plan on using these as candy jars for the doll bakery, I just need to go through my bead stash and see what works the best in them.  Dollar Tree always has the coolest stuff!

When American Girl announced their new releases in January, I fell in love with the Fun and Games Sleepover Set. However, since I’m not buying from AG at the moment, I had a problem. My favorite part was the little Uno set. To Ebay!!! I found a seller who not only had a cute set of miniature Uno cards, but two other things I could use as well.

In addition to the Uno cards, I found a mini Barrel Of Monkeys game and a pair of shoes that fit Wellie Wishers! I was pleased to find these items, especially the shoes. And the seller combined the shipping, so an added bonus.

Perfect fit!  In case you are interested in any of these items, you can find them at Butterfly Kisses Doll Clothes on Ebay.  Super fast shipping too, with an excellent rating, so you can’t go wrong!

Doll Sized Finds: New year, new goodies!!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a doll sized finds post.  Mostly because I’ve had so many things going on, I haven’t really had much time to get out there and shop!  Put it this way, if it isn’t sold at the grocery store, chances are I don’t get to see it.  However, I did manage a day out that didn’t involve strictly groceries, and I found some pretty cool stuff.  Are you ready to see it???

I stopped at Dollar General to actually buy grocery type items, so you can imagine how excited I was to find some doll type items.  First I came across this cute little pots and pans set:

The utensils are a bit too big, but the pots are just perfect.  Only a dollar too!  The lid fits both pots as well, just like with some real sets you buy.

A trip in the hair care section yielded this:

Yup, a whole card full of mini bobby pins.  Sometimes these are hard to find, and AG wants an arm and a leg for them with their sets.  $2.25 is much more reasonable for 36, and there is a neat little gadget on the card for opening them up easier.  “No teeth needed” it says!

The last thing I found was on my way to check out, sitting in a cart of assorted Christmas leftovers:

dsf-jan-17-3

Since it was on clearance, I paid all of 25 cents for it.  They had a couple of different ones, but I liked this one the best.  Always nice to buy Christmas decorations on clearance, even if it is for the doll house. 😉

I decided to make a stop by Walmart, looking for a piece of fabric that I needed some more of.  This isn’t my usually crappy Walmart at home, and they frequently have different things than what ours does.  No luck on the fabric, but I did find something else I’ve had my eye out for:

dsf-jan-17-6

The My Life As shopping basket!  I’ve seen this posted on several different blogs, but hadn’t come across it just yet.  Of course I had to get it.  I was impressed with how many different pieces come in it for the $7.97 price tag.

dsf-jan-17-7

I think all of the pieces are very well done.  AG had better watch out, quite frankly their food items leave a bit to be desired sometimes and this is some serious competition!

dsf-jan-17-8

There was a plastic insert in the basket to make it look a bit fuller for retail display purposes, but it easily pulled out.  Everything fits back in though, and I love that the handles work just like on a real one!

dsf-jan-17-9

The water bottle is my favorite piece, mostly because I like that they put a handle on it so the dolls could actually hold it.

dsf-jan-17-10

The last item came from a stop at a Salvation Army.  I was excited to find it, and even more excited when I saw the price tag–49 cents!  That got even better after I got it home, cleaned it up and inserted a new battery.  IT WORKS!!!

dsf-jan-17-5

It will be going in the doll living room, I think it will be perfect in there.

That’s it for this installment!  Have you found anything cool recently??  Until next time!!
