Ladies this post is a pre post. Why? Because there has been a large influx of stuff!
Both doll and house craft related.
I finally have some paint for the furniture. My original plan to spray paint it was a flop because the paint just rain right off.
I used up a 2oz bottle of my acrylic to get 1 headboard done. Then I bought a quart of satin latex. We will see how that goes. What do you think of the painted one? They are a little warped, not sure how to fix that, even the beds are. Comes from being played with I imagine!
Then as if I didn’t have enough work to do to refurbish 2 doll houses… I got a third…
This is the house from the webisodes Life in the Dream House. I do not plan to fix the elevator. In fact I plan to remove it and cover the holes. Still working out that plan but have the materials I hope will work!
Check out the bathroom. No tub, no commode but…
Tada, at least they get a tub!
In order to make this house playable in my office it needed a table. With rollers.This is because the only space left is in front of my outside door. I never use this door, but sometimes in the fall I like to open it.
My solution? A garage sale table, that Beloved put casters on! This baby took up the whole of my cargo area. It rubbed against my driver seat!
I put a tablecloth on it but I may have to just take it off. It got all twisted around while I was taking pictures.
I also acquired a Barbie yacht. It is not complete, but what do you want for the grand sum of $1? It will be cleaned up and I will decide what to do about deck chairs. I might get some more beach chair sets, if I can find them. I wanted 4, I found… 1, so far! That blur is Katie getting into the shot!
Now there are bags of craft or Barbie items all over!
New play sets, a pool, clothes, I REALLY want to get some stuff done and put away so we can play fashion show!
Plus, several new play sets.
Some tiny Fairy dolls to talk about.
Plus, I don’t have any pictures yet but… on the Doll not Barbie front, my sister sent me some of my baby clothes. When I came home from the hospital at 7 months, they went to thee toy shop to get me some clothes! I plan to put some on my German doll (fitting since the clothes were bought in Germany) and if I can figure out how to reattach this doll’s head, I will display her with some too!
My plan for this week is to work steadily in my office, fitting in homekeeping here and there, and take pictures of each step and write up several posts so I have some ready to go. I also need to tidy up the shelves to make room for several of the dolls I already posted about to find a home. In a bag on the floor is no fit home for a Bride doll!
Which project would you like to read about first?
I don’t have space for fashion shows until I get some stuff fixed and put away in its place!
I am itching for the pool party shoot! I think I will need to clear off my big table for it though, I must have 20 bathing beauty dolls!
