Look What I Found in the Closet
It looks like I won an ebay auction. I didn't. I actually decided to clean out the closet in one of the spare bedrooms. I hadn't opened that closet in about 6 years. My how time flies. There was a ton of stuff in there. I am sharing mostly the Barbie stuff and a couple other goodies. Some of the items need a little repair as they were crushed in the storage container. Of course all of the pink items will get a nice paint job. I also found a box of miniatures. DId I tell you guys I have miniature houses, too?
I needed more kitchen items.
Uh, oh. The windshield needs repair. I don't even remember buying this car.
There's more pool stuff that didn't make the photo.
Yeah! I needed a bench. I will use the cart as a tea cart, I think.
I don't do too many bathroom scenes, but I think I will do a nice half bath one day. I have a lot of bathroom stuff that has just never been seen.
Get out! My moving hamsters. There is a wind up button in the back that allows them to play. This is perfect timing as I am planning to do a vet/pet store soon.
I also found this table. I have one already, but tables are nice to have.
I was glad to see the bike (seat is still in the box). It will get a nice paint job to make it more modern.
Clothes, glorius clothes! I was wondering where that cable knit sweater was. I haven't actually looked to see what is in the pile, but I know there are kid clothes in there too.
How did she get in there? She was the only fashion doll in the closet. She's a 16" Daisy doll from Somers & Field. Not sure if she will be staying.
Last but not least, my favorite poem, Footprints, that I cross stitched many years ago. Seems I never got it framed. I was always bad at seeing a project completely through back then. But at least I finished the poem.
There is a bigger closet in the 4rh bedroom that hasn't been opened in about 6 years, too. There is a lot of doll related and craft stuff in there. I can't wait to see what treasures I find in there. Maybe I will tackle that one next week.
