Happy Birthday To Samantha, Let's Celebrate With A Visit To Tyson's Ice Cream Parlor.

Happy Birthday To Samantha! Madelon and Samantha shares their Tyson's Ice Cream Shop with us today!
This is a very well made and heavy wood play set! It was priced over $300. Lots of amazing details.
I love the little scoops of ice cream and the little pink roses on the plates.
The candy jar is plastic.
All set and ready for a friend!
This set has so many wonderful little details. Even the mirror has beautiful details.
The ice cream fits in the three containers under the cash register.
From the cones to the cash register this set has so many wonderful pieces and is a collectors dream!

Can you see all the scoops of ice cream it comes with?
Do you have a favorite flavor?
Madelon and I agree this is one of the best sets American Girl ever came out with.
What do you think?
Thank you Madelon for sharing your set with us and Happy Birthday Samantha!

Inspired by Kit Madelon Is Inspired To Re purpose A Pillow Sham Into A Quilt

Last week Madelon was at the AG store and she was compelled to look closer at Kit's quilt! 
"When I was at AG this morning, I noticed the sign and took a closer look at her quilt." The colors and the pattern are so sweet! 
When she got home Madelon remembered that she had a pillow shame that she was not using that would make a lovely doll quilt. Prepossessing and looking at things from a dolly perspective is such a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing with us today Madelon.
