The racks for the T.Shirts are a little short! They were originally made for Mattel dolls
Now I need to wait for more hangers
These ladies are still awaiting stock! Looks like things are not running so smoothly?
Oops! won't get fare with only one hand!
The Bridal department is coming along nicely though!
But I still need more hangers!!!!
These two are having fun as they dress the boutique
But AGAIN a shortage of hangers
The woman's wear department looks like a clothes BOMB has hit it!
And again... we are out of hangers
The swim suits are hung but as yet no bikini's....WHY? Well no hangers LOL but I can't find my box of little plastic body forms! I guess they are in that 'safe' place with all the other things I JUST CAN'T FIND!!!!!!
So anyone got any hangers they don't need.... PLEASE HELP!
As always I think the modern Mattel stuff is way to small the best around by far for me is the Pedigree Sindy A line kitchen from the 70's. OK, so it's yellow but you can easy change the door colours with spray paint or sticky back plastic. Pedigree also made a few other great kitchens.
A great modern kitchen is..... wait for it.....The Modern Kitchen! It's not expensive and comes in colours other than PINK!
It is a little short though, but a plinth of foamcore soon fixes that. This kitchen is not very expensive and pretty much available worldwide from Amazon or E.Bay. It does come as a three unit or four unit run. Above is the three unit the four unit comes with a microwave. As with most toys aimed at children it has it's issues in this post I hope to cover most of them as I see them. First is height it&…
I've touch on this before but here I will go through the prose step by step... First up room temperatures. Even before you start if you are going to use spray paint then outside or a well ventilated room is a must. Not hot, not cold and not raining. Oh, and no wind...very important no wind if spraying outside... not an issue if working indoors. Remember the sprays do like to float about a bit and all surfaces need to be covered or use a spray box. This can be just an old cardboard box or something you make yourself.
My table in the garden is just for spraying and is well away from the plants etc
Another must is a mask, I do a lot so mines a bit fancy (I also have Asthma) but a basic mask from your local DIY would be fine
Spray paints are easy enough to find just look around your local DIY or craft store, there is also E.Bay and Amazon. Start by cleaning what you want to paint then once dry I always use a primer, they come in three colours white, brown and grey. Not everyone uses a pri…
I'm often asked about storage, do I have a magic system? Nope it's a mess and I often spend longer looking for stuff than making stuff. A quick tidy can take days as I often stop for a quick 'play with some long lost item. I have things like soldering irons and blow torches still not removed from boxes! I have things I remember buying but have stored them away so well I have never seen them since! I'm forever saying I should have a second floor on the doll room (can't happen not designed that way). I have stuff in many rooms and even when I have a clear out I still have as much as before... or even MORE? How does that happen??? STUDY.... All the boxes are filled with... I know not what? I've started on a second row with the wheely gig on the right in the above picture Secret peek at my ambulance More storage boxes and my wallpaper collection. I also have two double and two single kitchen base units filled with fabric. A double and single wall unit also filled wit…
