I was looking on eBay to buy a few of the missing little accessories to my latest Monster High and Ever After High dolls, and somehow managed to also purchase Frankie Stein “Ghouls Rule” and Luna Mothews “Boo York, Boo York” dolls!
I usually only fulfil my Monster High doll obsession with charity shop finds, but last week I realised I could no longer resist the call of Skelita Calaveras!
I won my very own “Double Header” Lots-a-Lots-a-Leggggggs whilst I was away visiting the folks, and I totally forgot I had bid on it! It arrived a few days ago, and is just lovely.
I was more excited than I should have been whilst awaiting the arrival of this 1979 Girl’s World! This is the hair colouring version. The box is a bit beaten up but the head is in great condition and growing hair still works. Also included were several accessories.
I bought myself some more original Care Bears a couple of weeks ago from eBay after buying six others in June. Arriving in the post were four poseable Care Bears, four miniatures Care Bears and one poseable Wuzzle. Happy days!
I rarely buy second-hand toys, preferring the pot luck of charity shops, but a couple of weeks ago I went a bit mad a bought a My Pet Monster and a group of Care Bears from eBay. Monster turned up first, then last Monday these guys turned up at work!
Look who turned up in the post at work. It was only My Pet Monster “Rark”! I love his big bushy blue moustache.
Yes, I actually bought this cookery book! Replete with hearts, romantic quotes, health tips, and knick-knacks galore, this is now one of my favourite recipe books which I don’t use, along with my Worzel Gummidge cookbook. Both classics.
A few weeks back I received these eagerly awaited beauties; two craft books by Ed & Stevie Baldwin featuring some of the most creepy 1980’s pantyhose craft creations you’ll ever see. It was possibly more a “thing” in the US, where pantyhose sculptures were to be found adorning tables at church fates and old peoples homes the country over. The English translation of “Tight Crafts” conjurers up images of playing sardines whilst crocheting.
