A Little Thrifting: Some Furniture and Hello Kitty?

Some time ago, Anna paid a visit to a local thrift store.  She only purchased a few little trinkets, so let us evaluate their usefulness for dolls.

First is this Hello Kitty DVD.  Of all the things to buy, who besides the children would be interested in this?

“Oh my gosh!  It’s so cute!  Can we watch it now? :)”

Does that answer your question, Hikaru?

And Usagi, yes we will all watch it as soon as Hikaru is done rifling through my things.

Anyway, Anna also brought home this curious pottery set.  She meant it for a specific purpose, but I may be able to use it myself.

I suppose this large piece could be useful as a large vase, but what is it exactly?

Hikaru, it’s a sake set for some of my friends.  You know sake, as in rice wine?

On second thought, I would prefer something daintier for a vase, and without the horrid smell of alcohol.

Now here is a practical purchase, doll sized wicker furniture.

Though they would be more practical if they were large enough for me.

However, they are the ideal size for our little yosd dolls.  Sakura and Yuna can fit perfectly in each chair.

They is a slight issue, this furniture set came with occupants.

The pieces came with these two charming dolls.  They are lovingly constructed from clothes pins.  They have a sweet simplicity to them.

They are quite generous dolls as well.  They said they are more than willing to let Sakura and Yuna have the furniture set.  They said the chairs are uncomfortable for them.

It is all well and good, but hopefully in the future Anna will have more luck acquiring doll sized items in my size.  For now we are at peace.

Of Bjd Fashion: Felt Coats for Dolls

This post may contain affiliate links, please check out my disclosures page for more info.  Thanks!

Anna finally finished a doll clothing project she had been planning for several months.  Making some winter coats.  And yes, we know it is March, well beyond the winter coat season.

Her reasoning is that it is still chilly in the evenings enough to need a coat and several of us ball jointed dolls were lacking.

First is these two adorable little coats made for our yosd dolls, Yuna and Sakura.  How precious.

Both are made from felt of all materials and made using the same pattern.

Sakura’s coat is made from blue felt and accented with pearl “buttons” and simple bows.  Sakura has developed a fondness for bows and wishes them to be added to all her clothing.

Yuna’s coat has the same pearls and has a bit of lovely lace at each of the pockets.  Her coat is made in a sweet shade of pink which looks wonderful on her.

Usagi received a new coat too, also in blue felt.

It is lovingly embellished with heart appliques.  I’m sure Usagi is greatly pleased by this.

Sakura seems pleased by the color choices.

“Look we match!  Can we wear these every day?”

It would seem Yuna loves the color of her new coat for a different reason.

“It is the same color as my hair.  Ooooh.”

It’s nice to see someone is enjoying themselves.  Humph!  Anna chose not to make an adorable new coat for me.

"You don't need a new coat!"

Because you already have one, or have you forgotten about this dress coat I made you for Christmas (see Early Christmas Presents)?

I didn’t forget, I just thought that perhaps I would receive a new more improved coat.  After making so many others, it would be a simple matter to whip up an extra one after all.

No, if you want a new coat you will just have to wait until next winter.

Winter coats in March?

Sigh.  I suppose I shall have to wait, but I am expecting a truly gorgeous coat.  After all, Anna does have eight months to design it.  I am looking forward to it.

 

Give it a try:
