Our Barbie Mall- The Toy Store

We have been working ALOT on our Barbie Mall. I added some pictures of some of the things  we been making. Lacey painted the bookshelf, it is made from cardboard. The box on the bottom shelf is for bouncy balls.We made the strollers and Moses baskets from stroller baby shower favors that we found at the Dollar Tree. They were 3 for one dollar! I made a cushion, pillow and blanket to fit inside. The baby doll cradle was made from scrap cardboard and material. The rocking horse and little babies are also baby shower favors.

Still need to add white trim.

Perfect size for the kid barbies!

cradle rocks, it's not perfect but not bad for my first try.

still need to add ribbon straps for handles.

Anyway that's our store so far. Next week I am working on the hair salon and clothing store!

My daughter got married today!

I can't believe it! Donna and Stephen got married tonight! Gosh time just flies by so fast! Yesterday she was a baby on my hip, today she is a wife! Or at least it seems that way. I'm a little in shock, I think. It happened so fast. It was a very small private ceremony. Her dad married them in the church she grew up in, with me and her grandmother and his Aunt and Uncle as witnesses. They are already headed off to their honeymoon!
