As artistically unproductive as I've been lately (for like the last year), I still daydream about projects left undone and things I would like to do. Just walking through the store, running errands with my kids, my eye is drawn to the things that I could use to furnish my dollhouse. Below are some items that sparked my imagination.
|Do you see a pencil cup or a wire trash basket? Dollar Tree.|
|A little wood stain and this would make a lovely blanket chest for|
Barbie. Dollar Tree.
|These are the greatest - desk lamps for Barbie. Dollar Tree.|
|This tiny speaker plugged into an MP3 player would make the best|
80's boom box for Ken. Dollar Tree.
|I love contact paper for linoleum flooring, wallpaper, or hardwood.|
|This tiny dish would look great on Barbie's Thanksgiving table,|
filled with green bean casserole. Goodwill.
|This porcelain pram likely used to hold a floral arrangement. if|
you add a little mattress, Barbie could let her baby sleep here.
|I couldn't decide whether this would make a better bathtub for Barbie|
or a coffee table - all it would need is a bit of paint or a nice piece of
wood or thin plexiglass top. Goodwill.
|In comparison to everything else, the furniture actually designed for|
Barbie looks so cheap and flimsy. No, thank you. Goodwill.
|I would take them all home if I could! Goodwill.|
|I think these were meant for paper clips and pushpins, but I can see|
Barbie filling them with pantry items or shoes. Big Lots.
|For all those Thanksgiving leftovers... Big Lots.|
