For the Love of Tri-Ties!

If I had more money to spread around- I'd snap these all up. The prints just make me giddy.
I have 2 of them in my collection that I found on Ebay. One is an abstract geometric print in turquoise, pink, white, and black. The other is an awesome mix of automobiles, bicycles, and wagons printed on a primary palette.
The coolness that is the Tri Tie comes to us courtesy of Baar and Beards, Inc. Japan. They make a cute little collar, pony tail tie, and even look cute tied on the wrist or dangling from a purse strap. I wonder if these really caught on as a fad back in the 1950s...

Etsy Hoarding?

Ok, I've realized that not only do I have a habit of holding on to too many possessions in real life, but I also do it online.
I'm cleaning out my glut of Etsy Favorites that, although I continue to lust after, I realize I will probably will not buy (or should not buy for the sake of being able to walk in my own home).
I hope they find good homes...maybe there is some room in your closet and enough scratch in your wallet to adopt some of these cuties...some of them are really great deals! ;)

Dumpster Diva

You never know what you'll find in the dumpster while you're throwing away your cat poop!

We had to pick up a light bulb for it- but it works like a charm! Right now it's spreading it's heavenly glow upon the Blythe dolls...but maybe soon will get it hanging on the wall. Even though I'm not a huge beer drinker- I was still pretty excited. It is pretty cool. Plus- the trip to Orchard's to buy the light bulb enabled me to have this from the "Get Shaved" food truck parked down the street:

What I've Been Busy With Lately...

So, I've totally been sucking at outfits and thrifting and listing on Etsy and blah blah blah. BUT...I have been messing around with my Blythe dolls a lot.
Here are some pictures of my recent adventures in day dreams:

Poopie Boo Bear feeding the kitties.

Lieve (as a cat) chasing Pickle (as a mouse).

Lieve and her new wheels (her legs have a tendency to fall off).

Pretty Avery.

...and just for the heck of is Louis licking tomatoes.

Wow- what a lazy weekend- just what I needed! I did manage to snap some photos of some things for the Etsy shop- here are some goodies that I listed...

I started out by putting this little yellow gingham dress on the mannequin to take pics. It was my most recent Etsy purchase- but when it arrived I thought it was too short. As I was buttoning it up, I made the happy discovery that it had been hemmed- so looks like it's going to be staying in my closet afterall :)
