More on My "A" Frame Houses!

I finally got the new items into the "A" Frame houses I have!! So here are updated pics of them!! Enjoy!

I received some G scale potted plants from ebay, and a Blue Box Toys bedroom set from etsy!
Above and below a view from the dining side of the house with the potted plants. I must admit it was fun to put together and see the Fisher Price house with the newly added goodies!
 From the balcony, you can see into the bedroom.
 This Blue Box set below worked out nicely in the house!
 Below, from the other balcony...

 Below, a view of the second and first floors...

 More potted plants and Takara miniature garden decor, and slippers. Also a view of the living room side of the house.

 Then, I was also able to work on my HO scale Faller house. I received some patio extras, people kissing, and potted plants in HO scale!!
 I used the vintage flooring that came with the box. Then, I added some patio chairs, an umbrella, and potted plants. A young couple kissing too!
 On the other side of the house are the parents kissing!! LOL
 Inside, I added flooring, both print outs. A wall between the dining and living space. Now, just to add kitchen appliances, etc.!? There is a second floor! I just need to work on that next! I do have the bedroom set already too!
 Below, a view of the living room side...
 I added a Valance, and curtains too, made out of origami pattern paper!

I also took some outside shots looking into the house...

It's quite different working with HO scale, a bit challenging, but fun still! I love the fact that it's easy to put away and store too!! No complaints here!!

Thanks for looking! ~ ggsdolls

Amazing Things Arrive!!

A very much anticipated HO scale Mid Century Modern House arrives! Along with other things! Yippee!

This amazing HO scale Modern Bungalow I won thru ebay Germany! The seller was kind enough to let me bid and ship to me! I fell in love with its unique design and all the tiny little details inside of it!! I've never seen one quite like it!!?
What caught my eye!? Top, right above, a little Mid Century white lamp, in the living room or is it an library?
 Very true to the Mid Century Modern styling of the 1960's! Inside, you can see an office space at the top right in the photo above and below! Sadly, the desk came loose and its just behind the back chair! Whew!
 The room below with the white lamp has chairs missing. Sadly, those pieces are not located some where in the house or then again, they might be?!
 A close shot of the lamp below. There is a book shelf and long table inside...
 The bottom floor is the living space. You can see a TV, a table, a loose sofa and chair in this room.
  A closeup below, of the office. Now, if only I could get it open to fix all the loose pieces! So teeny tiny, its wonderful to buy a miniature house with all these gorgeous extras!!

Then, I also received my back order of the Rement "Little Twin Stars -Yumemiru Otome Room" set.
So many cute things you can use for Pure Neemo or Lil' Fairies!
 I will definitely be using this set in some scenes soon!

I also received this lovely case from Yahoo Japan! Amazing Masako Watanabe Margaret cardboard case!
 I used to own a very similar case as a little girl! But mine was of the manga "Rose of Versailles". It showcased Lady Oscar and Marie Antoinette. Still, it is amazing to find one that is from the 1960s and in really good condition...
 Because this case is made of a very thick cardboard, with some metal parts, like the push button lock on the front and all the rivets you see for the handles and case itself.
 Amazing! Even the edges of the front cover of the purse case has metal at the corners to keep the case from usual wear and tear.(Shown in the first photo of the case.) Below, gorgeous artwork by Masako W. on front of purse case.

Okay, time for a key lime coconut pattie break! From my Dollar Tree spree! Nom nom! Delish!

Okay, I was also able to get myself an iphone 5c in pink. I really wanted blue, none of course! But to get it cheaper, pre-owned is the only way and for it to be unlocked to use my carrier service! Thru ebay, I received it in the mail! Nice condition, and not as bad as a yellow one, I saw at Gamestop in WA! I'm a happy camper!
 I even got myself a 'Milky' case for it in red and white!! LOL

Lastly, I forgot to show this, cute McDonald's Happy Meal toy called, "Sweethearts" released for Valentine's. I got this the night I came back home from the airport. We stopped by at McD's and I got a kids meal, inside was this cute plushy! There are other designs...

Thanks for reading! ~ ggsdolls

Minecraft Goody Bags...

My daughter Sara wanted a "Minecraft" themed birthday party in her class. So, we had one on her actual birthday, today!

 Taby, Sara and I worked on her goody bags first. I was able to get these lime green bags of 10pcs. a set, at the "Dollar Tree" from my trip. Then, I printed out the characters for the front of the bags!

 Above Steve, below the creeper, and the words, "Thx for Celebrating Sara's Birthday!"
 A sword below...
 Taby made "TNT" and "Piggy" origami boxes to add to the goody bags!
 How cool is that!?

Below, photos we took from the class party!
 Taby made the cookie cake and decorated it for her sister! My eldest is just so talented!
 Sam and Sara, while cutting the cake to pass out!
 The class had two sets of party favor bags, the other is from Sara's God-mother to pass out too! Lucky kids!
Sara's teachers above. It was an awesome day, and we got to take her home early too!

 I got a Baymax action hero figure for her birthday (not shown), and this above, Fuji Instax mini 8 camera from Japan in pink. Along with Micky and Minnie Mouse film! She took some pics of her classmates and teachers too! Below, practice shots! LOL

I couldn't forget Taby! So, below I got Taby a yellow one with Rilakkuma film!!
It was a hit, whew, now time to relax and not worry about this for another year!! LOL
