Yesterday I got this beautiful embroidered hanky.
|Don't have anybody whose name starts with P. Don't care.|
Last week I got this little Marie Osmond Paper Roses doll for a dollar or less.
And today I got this awesome lobster trap in about 1/6 scale.
|When I asked, "How much is the lobster trap?" the lady selling it said, "Oh. Is that what it is? It has a giraffe in it. I didn't know what it was, so I put a giraffe in it." That makes sense...|
|Nothing comes between a man and his lobster trap. Nothing.|
|Don't mind him. His pants are in the wash. Got him recently too.The scale looks a bit off in the picture. The trap's not as big as it looks. Although he did need some help holding it up.|
She is just hanging out in one of my dollhouses, and having some tea with Chelsea, who has apparently just won the Olympics. The tea set came from a junk store the same weekend.
It was a dollar. When I got home I discovered it was made in occupied Japan.
At the same yard sale where I got Norma Jean I got these three girls.
They're actually Christmas ornaments I guess, because they have loops sticking out of their heads to hang them by. They were 25 cents each too. And yes, this room is in the same dollhouse as the pictures with Norma Jean. I didn't put in the wall paper and carpet. I bought it with them already in. I only supplied the furnishings and the area rug. This room is usually occupied by a late 1800's lady.
|Ken and Ivy commented that it was sort of weird and I said it was like that one room at Collinwood on "Dark Shadows": a whole different timeline was going on in that one room. She even has Quentin's gramophone.|
|You might have seen it before when the room looked like this. But Dollhouse Lady got bored.|
|She decided to make cookies.|
|Looks like they might be oatmeal cookies.(Except what is the meat grinder for?)|
I don't know what you'd call the other two rooms.
|There's some heavy duty playing going on here. Girls, make sure you put all those toys away when you're done.|
Today I found this awesome thing too.
It turns out to be worth a lot of money though, so I may not be 'keeping'! Ken doesn't get paid when he doesn't work and we'll be in England for a couple of weeks.
Stay tuned for more recent acquisitions coming soon.
