Don't Sleep on These

A couple of weeks ago Muff, of Hey It's Muff, did a blog post about new Barbie accessories.  I had seen that some new ones were coming, but had not seen them in the stores.  The post prompted me to go look again.  They were probably there before, but the HORRIBLE new Walmart display of doll items is to blame I'm sure.  I had to search high and low, but I found four of the sets.  The only one I didn't find was the sushi set, which I would like mainly for the cups.  

Roberta is in cleaning mode.  Her newest set is sitting next to her on the sofa.  The bucket on the floor is from a vacuum cleaning set that came out a few years ago.  

These are the four items that come in the set.  The brush isn't very clear (still not back to my photoediting program), but the handle is lime green.  Although these sets are designed to sit in the pieces of furniture with holes, they sit just fine without being in the furniture.

Just in time.  Look at the dust build up on that piano! 

Roberta hops on that immediately.

After cleaning, she throws on a new apron and goes downstairs to prepare some cupcakes.

The new baking set comes with the five pieces you see here.  How can you pass this up for $2.44!  I would have bought the heart shaped measuring spoons for that price.  Again, the pieces are designed to fit into one of the tables with holes, which Roberta actually has, but it's not necessary.  The pieces sit on the table without being in holes.  

The third set was the makeup set.  Comes with the bag, the mirror, the brush, the hair dryer, the blush compact, the makeup brush, and the lipstick with the removable top.

The three makeup pieces fit nicely in the makeup bag.

I ran across the kit with the guitar.  The last thing we needed around here was another guitar.  I'm not sure what the two other purple pieces are.  But then I saw the tambo.....

The tambo and the nicely fitting headphones.  Add new color to headphones and possibly to the tambo, and we are set.

What southern, black Baptist church you know that doesn't have a tambourine jingling?  They may not have them jingling today, but back in the day..... I just had to have the tambo.  Don't sleep on these sets.  They are worth the $2.44 and in most cases I would pay even more for them.

Hey guys, it's me again, Vanessa's doll alter ego.  I'm the one who asked to rent out Roberta's place for tomorrow.  Her house is so centrally located and I have planned to bring in a couple people to help me give an update on the real Vanessa.  She's been having a rough time the past couple of months.  I've invited her doctors to stop by tomorrow and give an update.  Don't fret, she just had to go back to radiation and chemo.  I've also invited Quentin, our godson, to share some fabulous news.  I think Dasia will be stopping by because as soon as Vanessa recovered for two days after getting chemo on Tuesday, she hopped up and made Dasia a new dress on Thursday.  What was she doing while getting chemo?  Crocheting on a Dasia sweater.  I don't know how Dasia does it.  As you can see I'm still in the same outfit from the last time I was in a post.  I'm hoping she will have some energy to have me looking a little more fly tomorrow.   Oh and by the way, when I say tomorrow, that could very well mean in a couple of days.  Hope to see you back.

  12. I still haven't seen this packs in my area and I'd love too because they're so cute. Even the fashion sets are hard to find!

  15. Thanks for the review of these accessories.

    I hope you feel better soon, too. Chemo can be a blip. I know now. Take care. I will pray for you. Hugs.

  16. Praying for you Vanessa. Chemo can be so debilitating although it does give you some good knitting/crocheting time. Those new accessory sets look great.

    2. I grabbed a few at both Memorial Drive locations (Stone Mountain and Decatur). It's like you said- the new displays are horrible. It was just pure luck that I was in the mood to sift through those messy boxes and bins...smh.

  18. I shouldn't take such gaps in catching up on Morristown. I read May backwards, I'll see if your update is in June. If not I'll be hitting you up in an email.

    1. Kenya - Hopefully by now you know that I am doing well. It was rough for a couple of months. My body was breaking down everywhere. Now that I am back on chemo, everything has gotten back to normal. I probably won't be able to take another chemo break for a long time, but it's okay. When I went to radiation (before going back on chemo) one of the nurses suggested I drink flat Coke to deal with the nausea. That has worked wonders. Now chemo isn't as back as it had been.
