Hi everyone! Today I present a second Goodwill Finds post! Perhaps this will be an every so often series (The first one is here). It’s been a while, but I finally got out to Goodwill and found a few cute things for my dolls!
First off we have this pretty little plate! You might remember seeing a picture of it for my BIBPC entry a post or two ago. I thought it was really pretty. Maybe I can use it for a serving platter or something, since I only have one.
Next up is this vase! I have a vase-type-of-thing for my dolls that holds some faux flowers in it, but it likes to fall over, and is really just a container some beads had come in, so I think this will work much better!
And lastly, is this cute pink stapler! When I found it, it looked kinda dirty, so I wasn’t too sure, but I wanted one of these for my dolls, so I brought it home and cleaned it up! I don’t have any staples in it right now, so I can just pretend to staple things 😉 .
That’s all for now! I still have yet to find an American Girl doll there. . . HA! A girl can wish, though, am I right?
How do you like seeing Goodwill fun finds posts? Do you want me to continue this series?
Which item was your favorite?
And here’s my BIBPC entry.
Old? Hmmm[mmmmmmmm]. Old books are neat. Hey! There are some really neat ones at the used book store! Let’s go there! So that is what I did.
And “Book” starts with “B.” Yay!
So I was inspired by Allison who was inspired by Julia to make a doll with polymer clay! It was a lot of fun to make!
Here she is!
I’m pretty happy with how she turned out. She has a cloth body and polymer clay limbs and head. I like to play with her hair; I glued it one in a way that I can do hair-do’s without her having a bunch of bald patches XD cuz that’s no fun 😉 . Oh, and I found that I can brush her hair with my American Girl brush… It separated into smaller strings from the large strings (which I wanted to happen) and the brush doesn’t seem to do much else, which is good. 🙂
What do you think of her?
Post Portion the Second: My BIBPC Entry
Story: When I first got the prompt, Broken, I wondered if we even had anything that was broken (silly thought). Soon enough, I was taking photos of a broken headband and a broken earring. They were alright, I guess. But later my mom and I went to Goodwill (fun find post coming soon! 😉 ) and I saw this cute little plate. I was considering getting it. I saw it had a chip on it. Oh, well, it’s a small – WAIT! A CHIP? It’s Broken??? This is great!!! I ended up coming home with the little plate, and now I have an entry! 🙂
Oh, and in case you couldn’t see it. The chip is on the front edge of the dish.
GO TEAM SMOOTHIE!!
Oh, and also, I don’t know what to name my doll! Any suggestions? Comment below!
Hello! Recently I went to Goodwill to look around and see what interesting things I could find (preferably for dolls 🙂 ) and I took home a few fun doll-sized finds! So I thought I’d show them to you!
First… we have this cute little glass bowl!
I found this and think it’s really pretty. Now the question is what should I put in it…? 😛
Next… This tiny mug!
I really like this photo… 😉
Isn’t it adorable? 🙂 It has a little design with dalmatians on it and looks like a wonderful size for my American Girl dolls!
The next thing I am probably most excited for…
Yes, yes, it is a baby skirt that doesn’t fit American Girl dolls… but let me explain. I have been wanting to get a little skirt or dress or something that I could alter to fit my dolls. So I figured Goodwill would be a great place to find something like that. I think this skirt is super pretty and cute and should be pretty simple to alter (I hope…). I’m really looking forward to the end result. I’ll probably post a photoshoot of one of my dolls in it when it is finished. 🙂
Well, that’s it, folks! Do you like keeping an eye out for doll sized things? I think Goodwill is a great place to search out little things for your dolls. Have you found any fun doll finds lately?
P.S. I got a button page up… anyone want to swap? 🙂
