Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!
Well, here we are, February 1st has arrived. I don't know about you but I know for myself and for many people I know and love, January is just a tough month. It's the month right after the holidays, it's cold, oftentimes people are kind of strapped for cash because they spent more than they usually do because of said holidays.. January just has a lot stacked against it I suppose, it's not it's fault really. Right? Either way, for good or for ill, it can be a struggle for some people. So... If you're one of those people (I am!)? Congratulations! You've successfully gotten through yet another one! Go us. Ok... So on to the dolls.
I was in Walmart the other day (I go in there a lot... Apparent?) and decided to see what little accessory sets they might have on hand. I've begun to realize that, with My Life As Doll items you have to buy them when you see them and look for them as often as you can because it's pretty hit or miss as to if they'll be in stock at all. That may be one of my only complaints about them honestly. I stop into different Walmarts two in different cities and and it's rather appalling the difference in selection depending on the store too. I digress...
So they had several sets in stock that day but I decided to buy the "Day at the Beach" set because it's cold out and nothing sounds better than a little mini-break to the beack with a fruity drink right about now. Eh?
Here it is in the package. The six piece set includes: mirrored sunglasses (Oh. My. Cute!), an inflatable beach ball, a beach mat, cute pink flip-flops, 'sun lotion' and a fruity green drink with a straw.
Here is the back of the package. I love the pineapple swimsuit the doll in the photo is wearing. Alas, as far as I can tell, the only way to get that swimsuit is to buy the doll it comes in and... Well... The Doll House has no shortage of inhabitants already so adopting another one just for a swim suit is a bit much I suppose.
Then, back in November of last year, my sweet husband bought me a few suprise outfits for my Birthday. I wrote about one of them in my post about Heather Doll's Birthday Slumber Party. I hadn't even tried it on a doll yet because it was a summer outfit but I thought this would be the perfect time!
Here are the three outfits he bought me at the time... They do make such cute doll clothes!
Cheers!! Gebhart (Our Generation) and Susannah (Journey Girls) were happy to be models today because they got to play around on the beach! Not a bad day's work, that!
Here is a snapshot of a cute display at Walmart when I went...
The other side of the display... I really like the little scooters... Might have to get one of those someday. I already have two doll beds but I were shopping for a third, I think the My Life As Doll one is cute. You can buy more than one and stack them to make bunk beds. How cute is that?
Better run! Have you seen any cute sets in your Walmart lately?
Till Next Time!
