Junkin for Barbie October2018

Junkin' for Dolls

I know I have found way more than this...but this was the collection from last week. Since my Blog will be Barbie-Old, New, Green, Redo, I'm always on the lookout for items to use for dioramas, redo or eventually resell. 



Some pretty diverse items in this batch. The first thing that screams at you is the pink couch, which I will paint and slip cover. A how-to-do of this exact couch is here on an older post on my other blog.


I'm totally in love with this sweet Spring table all set to decorate eggs and baskets for Easter. Lots of details, which are all glued down. Plan here is to make two table tops---one for everyday and this one. One table side bottom is already loose, so that shouldn't be an issue. I'll post that as a how-to.  It has a sweet matching stool. 
Perfect size for the Stacie/Chelsea dolls.


Another Adirondack chair in white. Can't really have too many of these in any color. The mirrored tray below is a generous size---I hope to redo the legs and sell in my Etsy shop---or I will use for photos. It has flecked gold in the mirror---so 1950's.


I've been on the lookout for this generous sized-bench with heavy stoney finish. Finally found one and---it immediately went to the exterior of Vickie's Vintage. Maybe will eventually sit in the garden of the refurbished Barbie Grand Hotel----my project for this winter.


The porcelain blue vases are also destined for the Hotel as they are a little larger. With the hotel's blue windows---I intend to do gray/white on everything else. These will be perfect!

Behind is the sweet green dresser/jewelry box, and has a Celtic theme. Lovely shamrocks are carved into the top. It has a perfect green stained finish and a great size. I will finish off the inside of the drawers and hopefully find a buyer.

The birdcage ornament will go the Grand, it's perfect for her DIY dollhouse, shown in this OLD POST.  We built this house from scratch for her three years ago.


Tis' the Season, and I picked up this Hallmark Barbie ornament quite reasonably, still in the plastic casing inside and with the paperwork.

If you are a doll collector or play with dolls, thrift shops are wonderful for picking up accessories and diorama pieces for your doll world. 
ALL YOU have to do--just think small!
