Hitty party

A couple weeks ago I went to the Hitty Party. It was such a nice day. These are the photos of all the dolls that were there. Funny - most of the people also have a Strawberina (or 2) and they were also all invited. There was a gift exchange for the Hitty's and the theme was Rodeo Drive. People sure were creative with their gifts for Hitty. I made fancy hats for the dolls- They are the little black felt hats from the craft store with layers of gesso, paint and hard coat mod podge. I then glued a beaded trim, feathers and rhinestones to each. We all received hats, a crown, a treasure chest with a necklace (that Strawberina took!), and other treasures inside, maps of Rodeo Dr, Teenie Tiny perfume bottle with box, keychain, book, suitcase (made from felt), purse, tiny couture shopping bags, a book... and check out the sweet owl & snail ny friend made for her strawberine - too cute! LOVE "all the pretty colors" !!!
and a wonderful altoid tin about Hitty with a cool paper doll of her too. The funniest item was an antique nut bowl (California land of nuts!hahaha) I have photos of all the Hitty's and the Strawberina's - how sweet they all are.

Strawberina's new dresser

I won this sweet dresser on ebay for my Strawberina. I wanted a vintage type doll dresser for her clothes and shoes. This came on Friday and I love it. It is a little bigger than I expected but I love the decals. They remind me of what was on our family crib when I was little. I had bid on another dresser thinking I would be out-bid within the 4 days left - well - found out on Friday that I won that one too! OMG! So a new one will be here later this week. Another vintage one, but plain and darker wood - will show you that when it comes in. Problem is - now I have to buy clothes to fill the drawers! OH NO! Oh I just love this little doll! These 2 little dollies have become fast friends and hang out together all the time. Do you love these little bunnies they have? They are those little Japanese erasers - just the right size!
