More Thrift Store Find Not To Harp On It!

Hey Gang!


While at again one of my favorite thrift store I found this 1/6 size harp!

It is the perfect size for Barbie!




I found a small harp back in 2011 at TRU but nothing this size!
 Comparing!




There was nothing on it to say who it was made by.  No marks, stamps
or anything.  I though it might be made by Byers' Choice LTD but I didn't
see anything that look like it on their site.



There is something missing here but I don't know what it is. I think I will fill it in with
wood putty and paint it over.


 The strings!


I still think I need a stool or chair but it is a great diorama piece!


If you know who it is by, please let me know and send any info you
might have!


OK, Thanks For Looking!

Thrift Store Finds

Hey  Gang!

I have been a little bummed out since learning of the death of Vanessa Morrison
of Van Doll Treasures.  I had always thought she would get better.  She was such a
warrior!  I hope her family leaves her blog and YouTube channel up but let people
know that she will not be answering comments.  Both sites are a real resource.  So
I guess we all must seize the day!


The other day I was at one of my favorite thrift stores and found this girls there!




 
Life in the Dreamhouse Rachelle and Teresa! I purchased nude but
put them in this temp outfit for photo.


These two are one the only fashionista with the strange sideway smiles.
When I saw the bag that held them, I did see their face.  When I saw their face,
I too made that same smile.  I had always wonder how the conversation
about doing this type of smile went.  What did the person say in the suggestion
of this look. And what was their final argument that made them go
forward with this doll's face. The rooted eyelashes at the time, was new for
fashionista doll.


The original fashion on these doll was pretty nice I think many purchased them for
this reason.


I have see a few people who have them and use them in their photo stories but I don't
think many did! I purchased them for their fashionista bodies. I and trying to decide
if I want to sell the head or keep it for the rare times when that facial expression
would be useful. 


I have the Dreamhouse Midge who doesn't have this smile and wonder why the
didn't make her that way too.

OK, Thanks For Looking!
