I am back from a wonderful weekend of visiting the parents. I always love going back home for a weekend to get a wonderful dose of "Mom's Cooking." Love it!
The weekend before this last one, the hubby was away so I got all the time in the world to go to garage sales. My husband goes with the intention of looking for 'something.' If he doesn't need anything, he doesn't stop at any sales. I try to tell him, "You never go to a yard sale with the intention of buying anything. You see what they have and if you like it, then get it." But he doesn't take that approach. SO...I got to go without him!
And there were a LOT in my area. Every one I stopped at, there were 4 or more signs on the post at the end of the street. Fun!
So I got a few dolls! I almost scored on 2 80's Kens and Barbie's horse but unfortunately someone took those before I got there. Bummer!
Here is what I did get!
I dug and dug and dug through this box of little girls toys and picked up the doll on the right. She was missing a head but I found it in the box too. :) Obviously she is a Fashionista's Swappin' Styles but not sure which one. Glam? She has gold earrings. Her hands and feet are chewed so we will have to get rid of those and replace them. Hair is pretty messy but I have a beautiful Swappin' Styles head to put on her. (With perfect hair because it's going to be impossible to get this hair looking curly again!)
The one on the left threw me through a loop for a while. I knew I had seen her somewhere and she had rooted eyelashes!
Remember this doll from my 25 days of Barbie post?
Burgundy was a Sears exclusive. She also came in green.
This doll I am a little frustrated with (which is sad because she's really cute.) She is fully anatomical (except for wrists and ankles) but she is so loose she cannot hold a shape or even sit up.
She has cute sparkly makeup and a kind of braid or twist going across the head before collecting in the ponytail. She also has painted on white ballet slippers. Who is she?
This one is a generic newer bodied doll. I don't know if she will be able to be identified.
And this beauty. Palm Beach Teresa has a friend. Palm Beach Christie! I love how I am getting more and more Christie dolls on my excursions. And no chipping or marrs on the painted swimsuit anywhere!
And the fun clothes!
A pink nylon backpack, a purple jacket with sleeve rouching, pink gingham and lace panties, a chunky sweater, a green tank, gold pleather pants and a pink gym bag. The sweater is the only one that has a genuine Barbie tag.

Someone please help me with this tutu. I cannot get it on a doll because there is no where for her legs to go through! How does she wear this?
I also found one last thing. A little top that was inside out. I was trying to turn it right-side out and realized that it had something stuck in its little sleeves.
It's a shirt for Draculara! I think I might put the hands on my Rochelle Goyle. Two pink is better than one grey right? :)
That's all for now! See you all next time!
