Starting the Year Off...

We had a New Year's gathering, so I ended up really tired on New Year's day. LOL But, the good kind of exhausted. I hope your year is going just as good.

On New Year's Day, the girls wanted to go shopping. We had been holding onto our Christmas money to spend after New Year's had passed. So, we went to Toys R Us, Kmart and of course Ross. Sara found some more My Little Ponies she collects, Taby found clothes, and I decided to get one of the Lil' Sister LOL Surprise balls. One of our guest tenants, had taken her daughter to ToyRUs looking for the larger version and found it for cheap there.
 I had seen these dolls advertised and wanted to know what all the hub-bub was about. Something like a gatcha toy, LOL balls are basically, 7 surprises in one. As you slowly pull or tear off the wrapping, it reveals a surprise. First, was a slip of paper with a kind of "Message" of what your Lil' doll is going to be, Second, was another paper, telling you a hint about her. Third, was her shoes, Fourth, her bottle or in this case a coffee cup. Fifth, was the doll's glasses or hair accessory, and Sixth the doll's dress, and Seventh was the doll character herself.
 Pretty cute, fun and definitely a lot of surprises. This one was, from the Glam Club, her name is "Doll Face". How appropriate!
 She's got huge eyes, and chubby little legs, arms, and tummy. Taby says she is supposed to either cry, pee, and drink the water you put into her sippy cup. I didn't want to try it. Her ball is also her carry case. Neat! All, the wrapping piled up as I took each off. Lots of waste here.

But, adorable nonetheless! I think my fave is the one that is called "Curious QT". I will have to find her via ebay, for an already opened one. I don't think I want to spend $15 a pop to open others just to find her...
 Then, this cutie came in. I won her via Yahoo Japan, a vintage pendant of Miyako Maki anime retro girl. Sadly, the top part of the pendant is broken off. I may make it into a brooch or pin... later on. I fell in love with the art. Just love me some shoujo anime or josei girls. Then, I also Binned a cute vintage Madame Alexander doll white apron. I was thinking to make one for my blue bunny. But, loved this vintage version instead.

 I took a shelfie of the top of my new display cabinet...
 I reorganized and was able to add my gayware spice set in the display too! So happy with all the room to move and add things into the case. Yessss!
 I also have these available if anyone is interested. I posted the memo's via IG. You can also email me! Mcdonald's child's toy Fujiya memo's unused, and a vintage unused girls thermos. Which I've already listed in my etsy shop.

 We stopped by the Goody Store by Oka Payless and I found these milk chocolate snacks by Glico. They reminded me of those Tsutsum Disney characters. How adorable!

 I spy, Ariel, Alice, Mickey, etc.
 I also picked up this shelf caddie, for my display case. I wanted to raise up some of my collection so that you can see the one's behind the one's in front.
 Basically, you just pull out the legs and the shelf is pretty sturdy, then add some of the items on top, leaving space to visually see the other items in the back.
I may need to get more! Now, you can see the other cuties hiding behind the small ones in the front!

It's been a nice transition into the year... I haven't been doing too many purchases. So, what you see in my shop will be the stock for now. Please visit my shop too. I've lowered many other items to get the stock moving.
