Frugal Dolly Finds!

Dolly Finds!
As we come into the Holiday season there are things
out there that make great diorama items! See keep
your eyes open and have an open mind!

This little bath set case would make a lovely closet or
cabinet for you Barbie rooms. I would do what I am
now lovingly calling a "William" with this. I would repackage
the items into a nice bag or basket for gift giving. With a little
paint I can then make it a fancy closet for one of my Barbies.
Everybody wins with this. FYI this case is about 10 1/2 inches
high by 7 inches wide and 3 inches deep. I may put feet on it
to give it just a little more height.

Who doesn't like bath items?
I think this type of thing happens alot but it may not be
admitted to. We have all seen those sales where you buy
one thing at Xmas and get the other for free. Does one
person get both presents? Do you crosses two people of
the list. Or is it one for them and one for me?

I see a lot of this type of bath sets around.

It can be a great plant stand. OK this was a quick set up

but you get the idea. So keep looking.

Very creative ideas! I saw an unusual spice rack at Walmart that would make a lovely kitchen display for the 1/6 world folks. Great finds.

I'm hoping to find a 1/6th size bathtub in the christmas soap sets. I'm much more aware of 1/6th possibilities in things this year than I was last year.

Great tips. This never crossed my mind because I haven't bought Christmas presents in years. Love the plant stand.

LOL..great minds. I have this cabinet. I bought it last year some time. I like the plant stand and may have to keep my eyes open for a set like this :O)

I would have never thought of the plant stand transformation. Good job.

Very nice Ms Leo. The Barbie closet is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Alrunia said...

Omg I have this exact cabinet! (mine is in worse shape tho) I found it only a couple weeks ago. Wow, what a coincidence :)

D7ana said...

I like the plant organizer, too. Looks like black ironwork. Classic and versatile.

TM said...

Too cool! I love your ideas!

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks TM. I plan to use this items in a few new stories I am working on.

Thanks D7ana. Great minds think alike. That is what I thought when I saw it.

Alrunia, how interesting! The same thing has made it way so many places!

Thanks Georgia Girl. I purchase two. I hope to have one painted this week.

Thanks Niel. I think it can be a bathroom stand too.

Thanks Dollz4Moi. I would love to see what you have done with yours.

Thanks Vanessa. Just when I think I have everyone covered, you get that gift from a neighbor or
co-worker that you didn't expect. It helps to have somethings sitting around.

Miss_Lola_77, You are so right, you have to keep your eyes open.

Tracy India, pick it up girl! Everything starts to sell out this time of year.
