Here are some other pictures of Felicity and Rebecca, when the tea set arrived- the smaller tea table is from Bespaq, and is a nice lower table for the dolls.
I hope you enjoy the pics, and I will be trying to get some more of the dolls. I have wanted to do a scene with Rebecca in her school outfit, which is next on my scene list to stage. One of the things I have been hoping to work on is a vintage kitchen like Kit's - I have a wolverine stove and refridgerator. I have always wanted Kit, she may be my next one or a Christmas present. I have long wanted to do a 1:3 scale kitchen, and acquire Kit's stove. I collect alot of items in antique stores etc. that are doll sized and half the fun is the hunt. One thing on the American Girl playthings boards that was a god send was the small candle pies for $1 at Michaels our board member posted about- here is Rebecca with some dollar finds at Michaels- pumpkins, candle pies and some adorable jars for tiny canned foods I am going to make-
As you can see, they are perfect AG size- just remove the wick. There were apple, sweet potato, and also pecan pie, but that did not look that realistic as the apple and sweet potato. I hope to post some more awesome finds- especially in my travels and on the hunt for Felicity. One item I wanted but is retired, extremely hard to find, overly priced, is Felicity's sampler and hoop- it is unique. Like many of the other board members, I decided to create my own- again at Michael's look in the dollar section. I found this little cross stitch kit for $1, and the smallest of their hoops which ran about $1.49 and is the exact dimensions of Felicity's hoop in the retired item. Though it doesn't have a stand, I will probably stain it mahogany and create the cross stitch sampler on it for her.
I will probably also create her hornbook, inkwell, and school lesson set as well. I am hoping to acquire her desk, but that will take some planning. Enjoy the pictures of my American Girls!
