Tooling Around on Saturday!

Hey gang! I was off on Friday. I spent the day with my
Honey. He wanted to take advantage of all the Vets eat
free offers. That man can eat! We ate at a few places and went
to the movies. So today, Saturday, is my day to myself. He has
to work today. American needs its' mail.

I started out at my favorite thrift store. I found this and a Barbie there.

This soda machine will make a great addition to a set I will do
in the future. Next, I went to Big Lots. I am looking for a few
AA guys but there were none to be had. I did find this guy
there. I had seen him before on smidge girls site
as Aaron.

I remember them being 9.99 then 10.99. Now they are 12.00.

I already have a few Asian guys but I guess what is one more.
He has a really great face.

It has interesting angles that
photographs well.

He has compassionate eyes. I had to take a few shots of him
out of his packaging to show you. Off to the park.

Walking the park on a fall day.

I like his hair too. He has a great haircut for sculpted hair.

Fall sunshine on his face.

I am working on his name but I think he will be Collin's

I really had to stop myself from taking more pictures.

I went to a discount store and find this doll out of her box
and on sale for $2.00. She has one of the new cheap bodies
that the legs doesn't bend. She has a good face and a
cute dress.

Preparing for next year! I found these dolls on sale for 40 cents
in Target. The crunching sound you hear is Ms. Leo eating the
candy! The sweater will work well for next year.

The sweaters were sewn on the bears but a seam ripper will
aid in the claiming of the sweater.

Pumpkin and witch.

Ms.Leo, First, Thank your Hunny for his service! Love your Coke machine. Also have to check out Big Lots for the Asian Doll. He would be a good match for a doll I bought.

Great finds. I especially like the vintage coke machine.

The Asian guy's sculpt does have great detail.


Georgia Girl said...

I love the Coke machine. I also love the Asian PT guy. My Big Lots haven't gotten him yet.

Chynadoll said...

Great finds! I also found that S.I.S doll with the cheap body! You got a deal on her. Got two of them for six bucks. I just got them at a yard sale so it was not bad. Gonna redo them and just donate them . Love the vintage coke machine!

EbonyNicole30 said...

No fair, I want the Asian guy! :(

limbe dolls said...

Lots of nice pictures. I love that Asian power team guy as well.

Vanessa said...

Love the Coke machine. I can see why you kept taking pictures of the Asian guy. He's a cutie. Good deal on the other dolls, too.

D7ana said...

Congratulations on your new figures! Love your new backgrounds ;-D

Niel Camhalla said...

I was curious about that Asian guy and I know where to start to look, at least what keywords to use for eBay search and stuff. Thanks Ms Leo!

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks Niel, D7ana, Vanessa, limbe dolls, EbonyNicole30, Chynadoll, Georgia Girl,dbg of BDE and Frannie! Yeah, I think I scored with the soda machine and the PowerTeam guy.

Frannie, I will pass on your message on. Maybe Big Lots will get a few new dolls in after Xmas.

dbg of BDE, I think the new guy needs his own photo shoot!

Georgia Girl, keep checking. I don't think they are getting them all in at once like other years.

Chynadolls, can't wait to see what you do with them.

EbonyNicole30, get to Big Lots!

limbe dolls, he is really cute.

Vanessa, I only wish I knew of more thrift stores with dolls. Some places no longer carry them because of the China doll danger thing.

D7ana, thanks! I now need a storage area for my backgrounds.

Niel, you're welcome. If I find more, I'll let you know.

Black Doll Enthusiast said...

Ummm... why did I go to Big Lots today, see the Asian guy there, and bring him home with me?

Answer: This blog.

He looks even better in person. I like the fact that his hair has texture. I am looking forward to deboxing him.
