Today's lovelies!

I got a pink slip on Saturday, but decided to wait until Today to pick up the mail. A few major finds arrived today, and I will be adding a few of my vintage goodies from my collection to my shop through out this week and the month of November! So, be sure to look at my shop or my For Sale page here for some rare or hard to find things that need a new owner! Just downsizing a bit folks ha!

I found this amazing shop thru etsy that sells cute Studio Ghibli design miniature figures for your garden. I just couldn't resist and there were so many cutesy things one can not resist the price too!
 Kodamas in white and in clear! Even "Mae" from Totoro below! Okay, she doesn't really look like Mae, but she is cute with her "Oooh" face and raincoat...Hehe. Sadly, one of my clear Kodamas in the top right photo, fell out of my hands an onto the floor, and lost a leg... So, he's resting face down with some glue to dry! Yup, be careful these figures can break easily-_-;

While doing my searches for retro TVs this amazing Hallmark keepsake showed up! I love the TV design so retro and even the tapered legs! A must have folks, especially for a dollhouse or room box too! You can find it thru ebay, easily but be sure to look for a cheap one! It even plays the theme song to "Brady Bunch" one of my all time fave tv shows back in the day! Yup, I used to pretend I was Cindy Brady!  Heck, my first name is Cynthia... Hehe.

I was sure to make a video of the TV playing below! Enjoy...

I also got my pre-order of Yotsuba &! from AmiAmi in. Ten cute figures of Yotsuba being mischievous! What fun...
 The figures work nicely in the Nendoroid Japanese style room, and with the mini Danboard flavors too!
 Yotsuba is not sure about eating, the udon noodles!

 Having fun writing a Penpal... There are other figures you can have fun with in the set!

A wish list item came in, below! I have always like Jewelry Liddle Kiddles, but they are the most expensive to get, I think. I've tried to find the dolls loose or in any state... But recently, the one I was really searching for had pink hair...
 I don't really collect Liddle Kiddles... But the reason I've been wanting to find this particular gal, is because as a child, one of the memories, I can recall vividly, is shopping at our Local Department Store Ben Franklin's. In the mid 1975 to late 1979, and seeing those gumball or vending toy machines set up on almost every floor. There was one particular toy vending machine on the 2nd floor, where the Toy Department was located. This particular vending machine, had a teeny tiny Liddle Kiddle doll on the display packaging with the very same pink hair and dress, just like Kutie above and below!
 I would beg my Mom for a quarter to try to win her! Every time we went to Ben Franklin's that toy vending machine was there, with the same teeny tiny doll that seemed to wave at me, as if to say, "Try and win me Gigi!"

I recall trying probably about three times... but I also vaguely recall, that on the third try, she came out, I was going to open the ball casing, but my sister grabbed it from me to open it herself. I begged her to see, and when she handed me what was inside, it was a necklace charm. She said, "You didn't win it Gigi!" I was devastated, but I could have sworn she came rolling out of the vending machine?! I saw something pink come out? Must have been one of my fantasies? Who knows? I will have to ask my sister...
Sadly of course by the next time we went to shop there, the display card was changed to a new one and the teeny tiny doll was gone-_-; I was so sad, and life moved on... Fast forward to the present, she is finally mine and in my very own hands! Truly one of life serendipitous moments... She came with her Pop-up Soda parlor, a nice bonus! I found her for cheap via ebay! Yay meh!

 I finally took out the Macoto Washi tape and found a great place to put a piece of it for my collection. Inside a lovely vintage sketch notebook too...
 I also have Kutie in a clear acrylic dome pendant to take with me, and it will keep her from getting dusty or dirty from too much handling... Yay!

Lastly, here are some outdoor pics of the Kodamas in the yard... Enjoy!
