I wanted to share a picture of my recent thrift outting:
There's a couple of shiny brites in there, a scary faced Santa from Austria, and a couple of handmade ones from broken jewelry bits. Not bad for $3.
I also picked up some lovely vintage pillowcases for a project, and lucky for me the new dryer arrived this weekend so that I could wash them.

There will be no dolly pictures over there. There will be dolly pictures here however.
Here's some eye candy from our recent trip to San Fran.

My newest doll. She is a Ichigo Heaven who has had her scalp switched out. I rechipped her eyes and now she feels like mine.
The orange mesh wall in the background is all over our front yard. It's been fun for pictures but I'm ready for them to take it down and put in the new fence so that the dogs can play in the yard again.

Summer has been flying by fast, I've been working a lot which makes me appreciate every second all the more. We've started to play a new game - One Lie One Truth. Where each person tells two stories or facts about themselves. One must be a lie, the other true and the other players. It's a great way to learn more about each other.
Bean made this candy airplane at the Arlington Fly in and was so proud she wanted me to share a picture of it.

I am behind on blogging as I'm currently working crunch time. But in between the long hours I'm getting a few things done around the house. I cleaned up the top of the china case, and have started work on sorting the linen closet. In an effort to simplify things we are getting rid of all the sheet sets but 2 per bed. It's not neccessary for a family of 3 to have 7 sheet sets. It's an excessive waste of space. So off to the thrift store they'll go. I'm using those vacume bags to hold blankets and fabric bins to organize the remaining items.
Two weekends ago we went to the Highland Festival in Anacortes. We saw family, boffer fighting, cattle dogs, pony riding and rain. Lots and lots of rain. But before we were rained out Bean participated in throwing a stuffed sheep over a pole winning a medal she was very proud of and made a shield and clan flag in the children's art tent. After the festivities we headed over to R's aunt and uncles house for some amazing home made chili and smoked salmon.

Vintage doll dress, the cutest pink vintage jewelry box ever (I really love this find), 2 small watches, a clip, some hand made embrodiered napkins, a pin and my favorite - a vintage goody swan hair clip that I only paid $2 for. The doll show was really empty this time which allowed me some good finds.
My pippos 'Amelia' in a vintage doll dress and a cameo necklace. The quality of the dress is amazing. I almost think someone made it out of their wedding gown.
A vintage Norcrest swan. I want to put pearl necklaces in it.
And finally some vintage pillowcases. They are so soft, light and airy. And their new home is on my sewing room futon.
