Amazing Dumpling Dynasty Tin!!

OMG, I recently was shown several amazing tins by a dear flickr friend/Christine from another fellow flickrstream. I immediately fell in love with the styling and goodies that were inside. So, as a small Christmas gift to myself, I found this one via by Dumpling Dynasty or Wu & Wu tins.

A cute retro style pigtail kit, which holds some really cute style hair ties, clips, etc. and also a mirror and comb! When I saw it while searching, I immediately, was taken back to some memories of my sister brushing my hair and placing similar clips and hair ties on my head!

The top section has pair of lovely large round ball hair ties, gingham bows, butterfly, flower clips, and shells too! Sadly, one of them was broken during transit, but I am trying to crazy glue them and see if I can fix em'!

Then, underneath is where the mirror and comb sit in red. How cool is this tin set!! I also found another that was actually one that I saw on the flickrstream that Christine showed me...a jewelry box set. I fell in love with the artwork on it and can't wait for its arrival too! OH gosh, I am hooked, hopefully I won't want to collect them all...eeesh! Still, I may want to get two of these sets, one to use on my dolls or daughters and one to save!! LOL! thanks for reading! - ggsdolls

Some Items Arrive...

I actually won these items a week before Christmas and was hoping they'd make it before, but didn't. Still they are lovely and cute and will be added to my collection!

I was able to find this lovely airline's child bag/purse or pencilcase. I've seen other airline company names, but most were quite expensive to get. I was lucky to get this one for a lot less then that. I must admit, I am tempted to find more...

This one has its original string straps. Underneath the wings are the engines where you can place pencils. There are wheels underneath the plane as well. A lovely piece of vintage airline memorabilia!

Then, I couldn't help but get this little guy. I actually found others on etsy, but won this one via ebay for a lot less. I love his chubby cheeks and he'll be a great addition to my vintage Christmas tree and decor for next year's Christmas! - ggsdolls

Jolly toys Clone Doll like Migliorati!!

For some time while doing searches for more flirty eye dolls. I came across a somewhat clone doll of my Migliorati Dolls. This doll has the same body design, hands, and feet as the Mig's but the face is not as beautiful and flirty as the original. Still I was able to find one MIB and in great condition to compare the two dolls...

Made by Jolly Toys 1963. This doll is called "Nikki" She has the cheaper plastic as with any clone more hard and stiff, and her body seems a bit smaller and slender. Probably after the molding process.

Here is a comparison side by side of their hands.

You can see the differences in the faces and the color of their bodies. The head sits straight, but the Mig's head is at an angle almost facing down.

Still the Jolly Toy doll has an interesting look to her face and same pouty lips. I will use her body to complete the Mig head I got in the two doll Lot, or I might just use her arms and legs? more to come soon... - ggsdolls

A Small Package from Japan! Part Two

I finally received the last of the two packages from Japan for this year! In it were some items for me and some for a dear friend that he wanted to bid on!

So, to continue here is what I got...
I couldn't help but try to bid on this little girl. She has such cute eyes, and she was minty. So, I did and won. She has been added to the shop!

Then, I also found this lovely anime girl case with no bidders! So, I figure why not, and won too! This case also had a nostalgic reason for me bidding on it. When I was about 7 years old, my sister found one for me but with "Rose of Versailles" Lady Oscar and Marie Antoinette on it. It was red with pink and at the time I thought that Lady Oscar was a guy and a very cute guy at the time. I used the case for sleep overs and when I'd go to my Aunt's house, I'd bring it along and use it to hold a change of clothes, despite it being small...I still can't figure how I held my undies, shorts, t-shirt and a dolly in it!!?? Still, this one was very much like that case...ahhh the memories!

Anyhow, it was just these two items and the others belonged to a dear friend! Thanks for reading! - ggsdolls

A Small Package from Japan! Part One

As Christmas gets closer, I wanted to make sure items I won thru YJA arrive before everyone goes on a Holiday. So, I have two small packets from Japan arriving, and today one of the two came in!!

I won these last month, and was waiting til' I had the funds to get them sent over!

This was a Lot of two Macoto style notebooks, vintage of course. The one on the bottom is by Macoto, and the one on the top probably Akira? not sure. The seller had two other lots of these books selling. I've always wanted the one at the top. So, I was thrilled to have found them!

Then, to my surprise, I found this little cutie! A Matchbox style baby doll. I didn't realize how small this doll was until it arrived!

Soft body like my squeak babies, but his body is made of terricloth. Sweet vinyl face and hair too! There are two other styles as shown on the box. Mine lays on his tummy! Can't wait to show off the other box when it arrives... - ggsdolls

Merry Christmas from my Family to yours!

We actually put up our tree earlier this month, one in our bedroom, and one in the living room. My daughters helped me with both. I wanted to wait to take photos because I had purchased via etsy a lovely vintage tree topper. It finally came, and now, I was able to take photos this past weekend!
The top was taken at night to show off the lights, and the bottom one was during the day. See the coconuts trees from the window! I loved how it turned out. The vintage tree topper is a treasure! Now, I just need to find matching vintage tree ornaments!! LOL! Notice the stockings on the windows?! We don't need fireplaces here...So, I have to be creative!

Here you can see a bit of my small Christmas in the bedroom. Along with my lovely babies enjoying the holiday season. I hope you all are enjoying it too! - ggsdolls

Cute Dolls and More Postcards...

Sorry it's been a while, but I got these lovely dolls in the mail last week, and some more Kruger postcards to add to my collection!
I won the doll at the top from ebay. She was cute with freckles and teeth. The seller was so kind to also include this cute baby below and a tiny doll(not shown) to add to my vintage doll house!

I also received these cute Kruger postcards, similar to my other one's, but these have velvet feel to them! All the cards I do not have already, so these are great addition to my growing collection!

This one from another seller. I have not seen before, but now have! I love her lingerie!

Then, I also received my swap package from paperdolly! We swapped for this cute smiley face doll and two of my perfekta dolls!! She sent me so many goodies, I was in dolly heaven!! - ggsdolls
