Van's Doll Treasures primarily features Barbie and other fashion dolls her size. I make and sell 1/6 scale doll furniture for Barbie and Ken. The link to my Etsy shop is available on the right hand side. I prepare dioramas and videos that feature my doll families.
The beauty of not buying dolls and a lot of extra doll stuff is that I have plenty of money to buy houses. I was set to buy two houses today, but I'm on the fence about which one to get next. When I saw the KidKraft Glamorous house today, I fell in love. I love the colors. I immediately thought about some of my single ladies, and my couples without kids. I will have to remove the stairs or the elevator to give it a little more space. Not sure which one yet. So here are a list of people. Any thoughts on who you think should get the new house?
1. Darius and Nikki (are they even still together)
2. Diana Ross and Billy
3. Tina and Harrison
4. Halle Berry
5. One of the Prettie Girls
6. One of the SIS girls
7. Jordan (business woman)
Feel free to suggest someone not on the list.

The second house that was in my cart a couple different times today, was the KidKraft Country Estate. The seller on ebay wanted to charge me tax. Zulily charges shipping. Amazon doesn't take Paypal. Soooo....I will wait a few days. That will give me time to mull this over again.

There was another house that also hit my cart a few times today. I'm definitely getting this house in the near future. It would be perfect for roommates, a single mother with a child (Karla and Tori), or a couple.
Dasia is starting to shop for home decor items. She's not ready to go full steam ahead with the decorating, but this is a way to get started. She's brought home a few pillow sets to get an idea of her decorating direction.
"So honey, I'm hoping I can get your help." (Dasia)
"This green set caught my attention first, and I immediately thought it would be perfect for the living room. Any thoughts?" (Dasia)
"Well it's hard for me to tell with all those patterns going on." (Harold)
"Hold on. I'll move everything out the way." (Dasia)
"So now what do you think?" (Dasia)
"Looks nice." (Harold)
"I was thinking about this pattern for our bedroom. They had comforters made from the same material." (Dasia)
"Hard for me to say without seeing it all together." (Harold)
"What are your plans for these green ones?" (Harold)
"I don't think I'm going to keep them. They just don't fit in. I'll probably return those. Can you hold up the black and white ones?" (Dasia)
"So pretty. I wish we had a music room." (Dasia)
"We don't have a music room," (Harold)
"Yes, I know. I think I will hold on to those for a while. I'll find something to do with them. Oh, I almost forgot. I bought something for you while I was out." (Dasia)
Dasia sets the pillows down, and stands up.
"See what?" (Harold)
"The t-shirt I bought for you. It says You're the ketchup to my fries. I immediately thought of you when I saw it, and I just couldn't leave without it." (Dasia)
"I'm confused. If you bought it for me, shouldn't it be something I could use?" (Harold)
"Don't you get it? You're the ketchup to my fries. It's all about you. I can't be the ketchup to my own fries. You're missing the point." (Dasia)
"One of us is definitely missing the point. Where would you like me to put these pillows." (Harold)
Pillows and newest t-shirt will be listed in the Etsy store tomorrow, if I'm lucky. Saturday if my day gets really busy.
