NO - I won’t be baking 😳 - but this is a tiny ReMent set #swapmeetfinds

Do you have anything hanging from your rear view mirror? Is this illegal in your state? For Throw Back Thursday- I’m reposting the 💎car bling chandelier- that I actually purchased for my dollhouse. A great “in the wild” miniature find that so amuses me. 💎
Do you have anything hanging from your rear view mirror? Would you buy this for your dollhouse?

Did you ever look for Waldo? My kids loved the books (late 80s). The grandkids still look for Waldo sometimes. Do you remember Waldo?

Do you ever eat popsicles or fun pops / Otter Pops? Do you have a favorite? Recently we had the 🦠🤒- and I had popsicles and fudge pops delivered to my door. Popsicles taste like childhood to me. Did you grow up having them?
Thanks @magnolia.minis for making mail day so fun! 📫 These are awesome!

What’s the one item you can’t walk away from - shoes, fashions, furniture, vintage things? For me, it’s always been baby things. My lifelong love of dolls & little ones has now moved on to tiny 👶🏼👶🏽👶🏻baby stuff. ❤️ What your thing?

🇬🇧💂🏼‍♀️💷Have you ever been to England? Do you have a favorite memory of it? My dad was stationed there at an Air Force Base in 1972 (I was in 4th grade) - and we loved visiting London and I still ❤️ anything 🇬🇧. A few years ago, I saw this Hamleys’ (Famous British Toy Store) Barbie at a swap meet - I knew I needed her. What are the chances I actually have a tiny Hamleys’ shopping bag??? I’m even shocked 😳

Do you like games? You write a miniature that you bet I don’t have - and I try to find it and show you. For instance, “I bet you don’t have a Target shopping bag.” - and I show you that I do in a video. Write in the comments what you bet I don’t have.

⛑🩹Do you have a first aid kit in your car? I’m one of those people who are always prepared. Of course, my dad was “Chief of Safety” on military bases when I was a kid - so it was always about safety and I’ve never been much of a risk taker. 😳 How about you? Are your a ⛑ first Aid kit kind of person or do you enjoy a bit more of a Hakuna Matata lifestyle?

It’s for you! 📞 Did you ever have a phone like this? Do you remember the number? I can’t remember if I took my thyroid medicine this morning- but I remember my telephone 📞 number from the 70s. Heck - I remember my grandma’s from the 60s. 😂 How about you?

Carbs or no carbs? Over the years, there have been so many different opinions. 🍞 🥖 🥯 Recently, so many people have started baking bread again. Have you? I don’t, but I’m very good at eating it.
This is from Megahouse - freshly baked bread series.

Do you buy personal care items in person or online? Lately, I’ve been ordering more online - and I’m thinking it saves me money cause I don’t keep throwing things in my cart. What do you think? Does it save money?

Do you remember seeing Jaws at the movie theater when it came out in 1975? 🦈 Do you still swim in the ocean? I’ll be honest, I haven’t gone out past ankle-deep since I saw it. 🦈 Did that movie scare you?

🦈🦈🦈 What do you think of my tiny jello, VCR and VHS tape from @ittybittyminimart ?

Do you ever order omelets when you eat out. My local favorite breakfast spot makes a mushroom spinach one that is so good. You would have to go to Hawaii to get this breakfast that includes an omelette, papaya and a coconut drink 🥥. Do you have a favorite breakfast spot?

Did you ever ride in a VW? When I married my husband the only thing he owned was a VW bug and a guitar. Looking back I can understand why my parents were worried. 😂 A while back, these tents and the pet carrier were at my art supply store. Of course, I got a couple of the pet carriers to use as props for my photos. Don’t they look like fun?

#tbt Did your Barbies eat? For the life of me - I can’t remember what we fed our dolls in the 60s. 😳 Perhaps something we cut out from a Sears catalog? No wonder they were all so skinny. • I found this 1993 Grocery Set a while back. Does it bother you that the oatmeal is the same size as the green beans?

Did you ever wish you looked like a fashion model? The reason that I first purchased a Barbie as an adult was to use when I spoke about body image. I thought it would be an interesting project to recreate my modeling life with dolls. I, recently, heard this song by @jac called Victoria’s Secret and knew I wanted to share it. Not only are young girls tricked into thinking they need to look like a Victoria’s Secret model – fashion models (back in my day) were held to standards that caused eating disorders, encouraged to smoke to lose weight, and treated badly by their agents. It was an ugly business. I hope changes have been made. *Model, The Ugly Business of Beautiful Women was published in 1995. The author, Michael Gross, wrote in graphic detail about the scandalous modeling industry. Many of the sordid tales he recounted were ones I had lived.
*Thanks so much to Mike Dawson @dawsondigsdolls and Di Assis @dollylandinbrazil for helping me to recreate my modeling portfolio with Barbies.

What the temperature where you’re at? It’s 87°F or 30.5°C here. Are you doing OK? To cool you down, I’ve made a compilation of my ICE videos. It’s not much just a few Ice-capades or escapades 🧊 Stay cool my friends. 😎

Do you have a favorite vegetable? I’m a big fan of asparagus, avoid onions 🧅, and am allergic to brocolli (really). What’s your choice?
