Another OG Retro outfit!

I was at my local Target and saw this outfit on sale!
I have been eyeing it since my last retro outfit from OG,
so I really couldn't resist.

I also picked up this little "Got To Lava" retro set.  
It was on sale as well!
Mostly I wanted the lava lamp for our Julie.

I thought this outfit might look good on Molly.

I was right, I love it!

The yellow cat eye sunglasses are perfect.

Unfortunately, the sandal straps were too short to go around an
AG doll ankle. I tucked them behind on Molly, 
hmm, not very satisfactory.
The quality of these shoes is pretty nice by OG standards.
Red cotton fabric and hard plastic soles.

The lava lamp retro set came with a journal and pencil, 
a furry pillow, cat-eye glasses, and the lava lamp.
The lamp is supposed to glow in the dark, but haven't tested it yet.

Here is the lava lamp and journal on Julie's dresser.

I tried putting the lava lamp in different dark locations, but no glow!
Next, we'll see if it needs to charge under a light bulb.

April wanted to see if the shoes fit her - they did.

Even on her the strap barely reaches.

Skyler wanted to try them next.

I guess Molly needs some new red sandals?
Maybe we already have enough shoes?

Recent Thrift Finds

Let me start by saying that I have had some amazing finds lately!  I was reminded by Flo over at Say Hello to my Little Friends I had a pile of thrift finds I never shared. Let me start with this:

I found this little chair with some text, 
"Chairs are always good to have so friends can sit beside you."
How cute is that? This chair is definitely going in our kitchen.

Next I found an AG bike helmet.

This is a mini Fender guitar.
I'm not sure if it's a bird wing or a butterfly wing?

This is the third one I have found recently.
Julie claimed this for her own, I don't blame her.

Such nice detail.

Next I found this plate.  I thought it would look 
great in Kirsten's cabin.

I was right - it's adorable.

Yes, that's a Felicity Tea Table chair.

Can you believe it?  It had a few scratches, but
that didn't bother me in the least.

My very BEST find lately is not an AG item, but an
AMAZING vintage doll find.  

She was in pretty rough shape when I found her
I know she is not much to look at, but look at her now!

She is a 1957 Madame Alexander Cissy doll.
Here is how I cleaned and restored her:
