THRIFTY THURSDAY!

IMG_2551

Okay, we are back with another Thrifty Thursday! We’ve been caught up in doll camp stuff as well as kid’s cooking camp, so we haven’t had an ounce of time for thrifting, but I was out shopping this week, and I found some pretty cute items that I thought that I would share!

I also have to share our darling new to us Samantha. We got her on eBay a while back, and I just never featured her, so I thought that this was the perfect time to bring her into the spotlight. She also didn’t come dressed at the time, so I didn’t want to showcase her without something decent to wear. 🙂

Luckily we found this cute little satin dress on eBay for a dollar. 🙂 I find that the sleeves of this dress are a bit too tight for the AG dolls, but it is still cute anyway! I think that it’s very reminiscent of Samantha’s pink satin dress with the purple ribbon.

Now on to our list! On Thrifty Thursday, we like to feature our top 5 doll sized finds of the week! So let’s begin!

1. PIGGY BANKS!

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness!

Aren’t these just the most darling things that you’ve ever seen? I am in love! ❤

These little piggies are made out of ceramic and have a pretty little flower painted on both sides. Perfect for doll rooms!

2.DOLL HOUSE!

A dollhouse for dolls? 🙂 Of course!

This little house used to hold recipe cards, but it is perfect for the dolls to play with!

The front opens up, and there is a little house inside!

The little Playmobil children fit inside there perfectly! 🙂

Too cute! LOL! 🙂

Now your dolls can play dolls to their hearts content!

3.SNOW GLOBE!

I know what you’re thinking, isn’t this for Christmas?

It is a snowman after all, but my daughter has a winter snow globe, and she loves it all year round!

Samantha just loves watching the snow swirl around and around! 🙂

4.PICNIC BASKET AND PIES

We found these at separate times during the week, but I thought that they go together well.

I know that the picnic basket is a bit large for the dolls, but I consider that it would probably be her mom’s picnic basket since she is only 9 years old or so. I also consider that her mom would want to be able to pack enough food in there to feed the whole family. 🙂

(We have a giant, real picnic basket in our house, so this works for us!)

The top opens on a hinge, and there is a slot for the handle to fit through to close it.

These little ceramic pies are a perfect fit! 🙂

These pies are actually the lids to little ceramic pie plate containers for JellyBelly jellybeans! lol!

They work perfectly as doll pie! They actually come with pie plates on the bottom, but we removed them. These are just the container lids, but we like them better without the bottoms.

Here you can see the JellyBelly logo inside the pie! It’s jellybean pie! How cute is that?? lol!

5.CANDLESTICKS

Lastly, we found these adorable brass candlesticks!

Now we just have to find candles that fit! I guess we could just make some. I feel a project coming on! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed our Thrifty Thursday! I promise we will be more on the ball from now on!! Now that it’s summer holidays, we have way more time!! 🙂

Here is a cute bonus pic of our new to us Samantha!

I think, out of all of the dolls, she looks the most like me. 🙂 My sister saw her, and was like, holy moly, Ginnie! It’s you! LOL!

Have you found any fun thrifty items for your dolls this week?

  2. Awesome finds, I think it’s a toss up between the candlesticks or the dollhouse as to which is my favorite. They are all terrific though!

    1. Those candlesticks are adorable! I have no earthly idea what they would have been used for otherwise. They are so tiny! I have had a couple of requests to craft some candles so I will probably be doing that soon. 🙂

  3. This post is wonderful. Congratulations on purchasing Samantha. She was my first AG doll and is my favorite.
