Frugal Finds For Dolls and 1/6 Finds

Hey Gang!

I am always on the lookout for frugal finds for dolls and 1/6 scale items. 
Sometimes they are toys and sometimes they are not!  This time of year is a
great time to find items.  There a lot of mini item for Christmas displays
and ornaments.  Also there are more toys too!  I saw this kitchen set in an area store!
Except for the color, I think it's a great find.
It has all these great items in it.

They will need painting!


Bowls and Glasses.

Cleaning items and watermelon.

Pots pans and a blender!

Sometimes I see things and get inspired too!  While out for breakfast, they
served this preserve along with the toast.  I guess I watch a lot of
My Froggy Stuff Videos because it got me thinking!

Maybe I can use the silver pot the for something!

Once cleaned out it looked like a pie pan.

Maybe a deep dish pie pan

Maybe it could be a frying pan.

My dolls need to protect their money.  They need a safe but which one?
One that I only have to paint a little...

or one that I would have to paint a lot?

Next at CVS I saw this guy!

He is a buck with a tudie!

The buck might be nice with a paint job. 
I saw this street lamp at CVS too!  The lamp is about 10.00...

 and that is much cheaper than the Lamp I own from
 Byers Choice Ltd. at 44.00 ...

but it is not as sturdy so be careful.

Good details.

It does lights up! It is about 14-15 inches.

I hope that they both will be around and reduced after the holidays.

Out in nature there are things too!  Pine cones that are doll size!  I found this
while out on a walk!  They were free and you can't beat free!  These small pine
cone are a good size for dolls!

So Loraine went in the woods looking for pine cones for craft projects!
Loraine: Hey Gang!  I just went walking in the near by woods and I found great
pine cones!

 I filled my basket with them!
 There are small ones...
 and large ones!
These are great for craft projects!  Just guess what I will make!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

The tiny accessories are awesome, I love the safes, and the watermelon and blender. The frying pan idea is great! Looking forward to see what you will make with the pine cones.

This was a fun post! I really like those "pie pans" You could even wash tired feet in them. lol
Don't you love those tiny pinecones? And they come with a nice leisurely walk!

Those items are great diorama finds. not sure about the Buck :-) Recycle the jelly containers..another idea I read was the square jelly ones using them for pyrex loaf dishes, just snip the corners off to make handles.

Before I got into dolls I collected cheap miniature food and kitchen utensils. I think I have a set similar to yours, or at least one with the same water melon slice! The safes and streetlights are awesome. Merry christmas!

Thanks for your comments limbe dolls, Night Owl, The grandmommy, Simsgrl,D7ana, Brini and Anderson's All-Purpose!

limbe dolls, I saw them at 50% off at Walgreen too!

Night Owl, I think with the right paint the kitchen set might be wonderful.

The grandmommy, they are a large size. Like one of those pies you get at Costco of Sam's Club.

Simsgrl, wow, I never thought of that! hmmm....

D7ana, I have to do something with them for our next meeting!

Brini, they weren't all I found! I show more.

Anderson's All-Purpose, I guess one thing leads to another. Ihave a set with a vacuum cleaner too!
