Thrift store Thursday-Polish Pottery set

This adorable Polish pottery set was found hanging in a baggie at my favorite thrift store for the bargain price is $3.40. I love collecting people size dishes so I completely love collecting dolly size dishes. I do not own a piece of Polish pottery for myself (yet) despite the fact my DH lived in Poland for 2 years (oh the horror). Someday, my china hutch will be filled with the delightful blue of Polish pottery.

How my DD3 plays with the AG stuff

Love the rooster tucked in the crib.

My DD3 loves little beanie babies, for several days this week our doll area was overrun by this temporary zoo. She begs everyday to play in the dollhouse, but still does not like dolls.

Thrift store Thursday

So Thrift Store Thursday will be where I showcase my AG brand goodies, my re-purposed items, or anything else doll sized, that I find at our local thrift store. I am very lucky to have such nice, large thrift stores close to me, I haven't gone into one yet and not bought an AG goodie (knock on wood)
These are girl sized bitty baby outfits, I bought all of these in the last 2 weeks of December, they were all 1/2 price so I didn't pay more than $2 for any of them. We have the bitty dress in all of them but evergreen and purple meet (they now get added to the list). Now if my DD3 would just give a darn about her bitty then this would be really fun.

Bitty lot arrived today!

Big Smoochies to the phantom UPS guy who left a giant box on my front porch. Another smoochie to a fast ebay shipper! Here is my new bitty and her goodies.
Bouncy seat, starter kit (missing blue pants, book, & bottle - I can deal) bows & bunnies (on the list) and Little Sweetie set (also on list!) and some jammies for my DD3.
She has eyelashes that curl just a little, I named her Sadie

Gemma is my PC bitty on the left and Sadie is on the right.

The girls are all settled into the nursery. The nursery is a tiny little space next to my desk and the dollhouse in the doll room. The doors you see lead out into a little landing (almost a small loft-been thinking of making that the nursery) at the top of my stairs. I am pretty happy with this lot even if it wasn't planned.
Tomorrow comes Thrift Store Thursday where I showcase my AG goodies or repurposed goodies I find at the thrift store (my new obsession!)

Resolution already Broken

So its only Jan. 5th and I have already broken one of my New Year's resolutions. I had decided I would make a list of items I want to collect and only buy from that list. No more scouring ebay for fun deals, no more buying off Craigslist or from message boards. I am armed with a list and I have plan. OK no list yet, but that was a resolution too. All was going well until in a moment of bored weakness, I logged onto ebay.

A bitty baby lot, a fuzzy pictured bitty with the new starter set and 2 outfits on my list and the bouncy seat (my little bittys currently have no where to bounce their litte bums) all for $74, bargain right? The two outfits were on my mental list so that kind of counted as keeping my resolution. It came with girl jammies so I can pass those on to my DD 3, who could care less.
I'm not sure what eye color bitty has. Its a surprise I guess, couldn't really tell from the picture. I hope all the pieces are there.
Happy New Year to me.
