St. Malcolm Will Get An Upgrade!

St. Malcolm Will Get An Upgrade!

I am working on bringing St Malcolm to life.

This is Camille, the owner of the Villa enjoying breakfast
there seaside.

To that end, I purchased one of my Holy Grail items-
The Mattel Cali Girl Hawaiian Hotel Resort.
It completes the other topical sets I have that I plan to use in
St. Malcolm. I purchased it from Bex at philosophy_shop.
who has a customized set posted on thedollpage for sale.
I do plan to customized this set (Harold will have to make
his way there) but for now I would like to show you the set.

It is not the complete original set but it does have all the key
pieces that I loved. Bex at philosophy_shop included a few
additional items for me so that I could customize this one.


As you can see from the two pictures above, it has a table and
chair set with an umbrella. Bex include the suitcases with the
swimsuits in them. There are tropical drinks too!

suit one!

...and suit two!


The two things you need in any hotel...coffee and a phone.

The room has a door that opens! See the room number.

You can enjoy the view from the balcony.


Map of the hotel on the inside door.


Purse, cart and chair.


I got some sodas. There is a window with a view too!

Camille check each room before guest check in!

She has to call the desk. They need more towels in this room.
Thanks for looking.

I have this set. I wish I had bought two more when I had the chance. Three of them together would have made a very picturesque village street. I have used it for stories set in Africa. Congratulations on the upgrade to Saint Malcolm!

Cat said...

Hello from spain, I love what you are doing in San Malcolm the entire set is ideal. It lacks detail. It was very well the landscape seen in the windows. Congratulations and I look at the hotel overlooking the beach... Why envy me Camille. Keep in touch

Frannie said...

What a great set! Will be keeping my eyes open for a set like this! Can't wait to see the stories that come out of Saint Malcolm!

Hey, It's Muff said...

Okay, this is just too cool for school. Great buy.

Vanessa said...

Absolutely perfect for the beach villa. Hmmm. I wonder who will be stopping in to visit?

Brini said...

Congrats, that a great set and I can't wait to see how your are going to customize it. I just know it going to be wonderful. Even as Camille checks it out, I can see her getting visions in her head.

Thanks limbe dolls, Cat, Georgia Girl, Chynadoll, Marta Frannie Hey, It's Muff Vanessa and Brini!

limbe dolls, I would buy another if I get the chance too! Have you changed yours?

Cat, in the first picture (Camille sitting) it is calendar and the second is a poster I purchase at Big Lot! Check out this post I did a while back!

Georgia Girl and Brini, I am going to take the customizing slow. So that I can really figure out what I like and not mess it up. I will be using the set during the process. So you will still see it with it’s little changes but it won't be... bam it is done!

Chynadoll and Frannie, I never saw this in the stores or I would have purchased it then! I have only seen it come up rarely... so I had to jump on it. I think there might be a fight for the next set that comes up for sale!

Hey It's Muff, they aren't producing many special play sets lately. You have to scoop them up when you see the.
Frannie and Vanessa, I will need to have all kinds of people stop by. The President has already come to St. Malcolm. http://i-luv-dolls.blogspot.com/2010/08/getting-away-to-re-enerigize.html

I do think other celebs will visit too; it is such a nice place.

Hello Marta! In customizing St. Malcolm I will start with the easiest thing and what I know best, the landscaping! All my years of gardening and going to the Flower Show will come in handy. I guess I will need a gardener but whom?
