Ok, maybe not my kingdom but I have seen a lot of posts on my facebook doll groups recently with the houses they made for Christmas this year. Here’s one I spotted from the day after Christmas on youtube:
Click the image to link to the youtube video from Jami Ray Vintage. This house is made mostly of pallets. How cool is that? Plus, it looks awesome.
Here are the other houses and rooms I have in my spreadsheet. Do you have any more or want to share your own here? Let me know!
It was rainy and wet in Pennsylvania this weekend so the girls took a break from the shop and had an indoor beach party!
On the left is Kiki, a Madame Alexander My LIfe As Hairstylist doll and on the right is Nora, a CitiToy My Life As Hairstylist doll. They run a shop together specializing in hair! (Remember when they did Willow’s hair?)
To make our quick scene, we used the new OG Luau set props, an old gate from a flea market, a MLA puppy, a pet store sandcastle prop (for inside a fish tank), the new OG swimsuit and the in store two piece swimsuit from AG. The blue background is the wall in my doll room and the sand is a foam board that came like that that I found while cleaning! It’s mottled just like sand but smooth so it doesn’t hurt the dollies. A dish cloth serves as the perfect beach blanket!
For comparison between the MLA styles, don’t miss my shared post with The Toy Box Philosopher.
Here are the lovely ladies still in their boxes. Kiki was bought on clearance when the CitiToy dolls arrived to replace the MAs.Neither Kiki or Nora have been featured in the My Doll Friday posts yet but when I do, this page will be updated with links!
Now I have to fight the urge to make a beach volleyball set … or do I?
