Until I get a roombox built, I really can't display much. But, with a few minutes of my time, I put together a small scene and was laughing the entire time.
Tomorrow, I should receive the kitchen/stove unit, the refrigerator, and a few other small boxes of re-ment miniatures.
Keep an eye out, because I'm sure that I'll have lots of interesting photos to share.
I have found a new obsession... Boopsiedaisy dolls. She makes the BEST dolls ever. They are cute, original, and smell like pure euphoria. You can see the attention that Boopsie pays to detail, and she always seems to find a way to outdo herself.
In this photo, 4 of the 6 dolls now belong to me. As soon as I receive them, I will definitely post photos. From left to right, I have the first 4. The ballerina is the only doll currently available, so be sure to pick it up ASAP in her shop!
These dolls will make a great addition to Zombina and Spidora!
I ♥ Boopsie!
So, with all of the new shelving I'm putting up, I'm able to display more of my treasures that were once boxed up and put away. I came across these tins and a little kewpie doll that are happy to be out and about. I have 2 Tootsie Pop tins, 1 Sugar Daddy, and 1 Now & Later. They are so adorable.
I also made myself leave the house yesterday to go look around at some thrift shops. I've been holing myself up, and I'm rather enjoying it. For the past 2-3 years, I have burned myself out trying to work 55 hours a week and do everything else that is expected of me. I love to work and do things, but I find that I volunteer myself far too often and now I'm done. I just can't go anymore. Couple that with the recent addition of Yaz to my life [to help regulate horomones], and I feel like a complete whack-job right now. Yikes.
Anyway, these are the small things that make me happy. The items that remind me of being a kid. The trips on my bike to the store at the end of the street to get my mom a pack of cigarettes and myself a 5 cent pack of Now & Laters. I'll be 28 this year and it's weird to think that I can now tell stories like that, haha.

[ABOVE]: Corner #1 of my living room. White couch is a hand-me-down. Red couch, lamp, green rug, and laptop table are from Ikea. Coffee table and end table is from EQ3. Prints on back wall are from Matty8080. Blue clock is from EQ3 and print beneath is from Stoopidgerl.
Corner #2 of my living room. A glimpe of my Pinkytoast wall above the TV. I still have a few more that need to be framed, but I have to get more frames.
Corner #3 of my living room. More Pinkytoast prints, some personal photos, and doorways into our bedroom, kitchen, and the spare room which is our "computer room".
Corner #4 of my living room. Red couch from Ikea. Circle canvas painted by my husband. Built in shelves originally had UGLY glass doors on them. We removed the glass doors, painted the inside of the shelves the same as the trim, and filled them with Books and our GIGANTIC movie collection.
