Before I share these great finds from Diana with you I have decided that the official name of Diana’s Doll Hospital should really be “Diana’s Doll Rescue & Restoration” or “Diana’s Doll R&R” – agree?? Anyhow, over to Diana now as she shares some of her latest amazing finds.
One evening last week I decided to drop in on my nearby Goodwill, it was almost closing time. What a surprise I had! I found these three cuties to add to my Diana Doll Hospital. Here they are as I found them from left to right: red hair Bella from Kingstate Collection ($6.96), she is articulated and vinyl, 18″ like AG dolls. The little angel is fully articulated and porcelain (.77 cents), and last is Megan from Magic Attic ($6.96).
Very important is the back view. They are not too bad, but they do need cleaning and hair styling and clothes washing.
Here is Bella ready to go to her party. She has the most beautiful blue eyes. Her hair is curly and yes I brushed it and re-curled it.
Back view of the beautiful curly red hair. It is not tangled.
Megan in her new outfit from Journey Girl. She is ready to meet her friend, who can it be? The Journey Girl outfits fit these slim line dolls, perfectly including the shoes.
Megan met Nickola at the ice cream parlor. Nickola is also wearing a new Journey Girl outfit. Let’s look closer at what is new in the ice cream parlor. Do you see the Bakery Cabinet? They are now offering sweat treats along with ice cream.
A closer look at the Bakery Cabinet, made by using crafts from Hobby Lobby. I found a glass cabinet and all the wood materials at Hobby Lobby, and converted it into the Bakery cabinet by adding little legs and a top to increase the height for the 18″ dolls. I painted it, and fixed the shelf inside to be solid and I added marbleized contact paper for a finishing touch. Since it was a sweat treat cabinet I also included colorful stickers on the front. Total cost around $10, using coupons at Hobby Lobby.
- The bistro table is also a Goodwill find and I made the table cloth for it.
- The backdrops are from AG.
- The little angel was cleaned up and placed with others like her in my bedroom shelf.
Have a great day!
