My Latest Gloria Purchases
The question I get asked the most is, "Where do you get all of that stuff?" I am still having trouble getting around to do doll stories, but I have had no problem shopping on-line this past month. I finally broke down and bought 10 of the Gloria sets. They arrived weeks ago, and they are still sitting unopened in the box they were shipped in. I thought I would share pictures of a few of them. They will all be painted before I use them.
The good thing about this dining set is all the dishes, cutlery, and drinking glasses it comes with.
This is what the infamous Gloria bar looks like prior to painting. This bar (without the glass holder) can be used for check in counters at hotels, daycares, airports, etc.
This is my first time buying this little kitchen. It's the perfect size for a studio or loft apartment.
This dining set is fairly new to the line. I think the style of the set, especially the chairs, would make a perfect patio set. I can just imagine it at a beach house. That green color would compliment the water.
You can never have too many bedroom sets with all the houses I have.
I bought this set to use in some of my Barbie houses. The smaller size I think works well in the undersized houses. It's also a great set for some of the older residents in town. I can also see this set in the lobby of an older hotel chain, like Days Inn. Oooh, it would also work in a nice cabin. Those lamps and tables will work in more modern settings, too.
This is the fast food restaurant set. On the left, behind the table, is the cutest little trash can with a swinging door. This would work well in a school cafeteria.
The Tea for Two set is small, but has many uses. I wanted this cute tea cart. It will be nice for hotel room service. I didn't notice how nice that table will be for a living room. I also never noticed that little plant until now.
I love how different this bathroom is. This will be nice in a hotel setting, too. That's the most likely place you will see a flat screen in the bathroom.
I bought all of these sets from FortuneToys on ebay. There are others that sell Gloria playsets. Most of them will have shipping specials when you buy a certain number of sets. Hope you enjoyed seeing my sets, and hearing some of my ideas.
Leg Update: I'm a little irritated with my leg. It was getting better and I was moving around a lot more with the crutches. Now it seems like the leg is getting worse and there are days now when I can't move it at all. That's why I haven't been able to do a story in a little while. I've decided to get radiation, which should put me back on my feet, and off the crutches. Next Monday I go for consultation, and I will opt to have them start as soon as possible. Oddly enough, my arm is now functioning at 90%. Yippee! I can't wait to get back to my dolls and doing stories.
