Looking For Great Items For Girls N Dolls? Madelon Found Them For Us!

I love seeing dolly and me items when I go out. I need to refill my purse with doll goodies to give out when I am out and about, last weekend there was a little girl and her Rebecca doll and I kicked myself that I did not have a card or doll treat to give her. Madelon reminded me of re filling my bag and shared this great Etsy shop that has wonderful matching dolly and me hairbands.
Today I am pleased to share GirlsNDolls Etsy shop with all of you.
It is Cherry Blossom Season here on the West Coast and I hear from Madelon on the East Coast too, We both loved this listing for cherry blossom inspired headbands!
This shop has great listings for items like simple doll skirts at very affordable prices which make great loot bag items. If you are not someone who sews shops like this make parties so much more fun!
This shop has a great selection of Dolly and Me Separates as well, fab and fun patterns you are going to love.
I love that you can request items in size 14! Not many shops offer items in larger girl sizes so this is a shop to take note of!

New From Our Generation At Target Jessica T Spotted Some Fun Finds!

I love watching all the fun finds people who live in the USA find each time they go to Target, Sadly we don't have Target here anymore in Canada and it is truly a gem find to get any of these new sets our cousins in the USA seem to find. Jessica T was  kind enough to send in her finds from her recent visit to Target!
Our Generation Dolls outfits are much improving and the little faces have grown on me over the years, I would love a doll like this!
The little play sets are truly wonderful and always a great idea to pick up and put away it seems like they are hard to find so when you find them grab them and tuck them away for a quick gift, party or just because gifts.
I am thrilled to see sets like these they add so much to the play process!
This set in particular caught my eye, what a wonderful set, encouraging children to climb! Such a great sport!
The only thing I would caution is that sometimes the shoes and boots are not the perfect fit for all 18 inch dolls,
Thank you Jessica T for sharing your in store fun finds with us!

Lemon Bay Doll Company Sleepover Set

Today I am thrilled to share my review of the Lemon Bay Doll Company's Sleepover Set. I was thrilled to receive this to review. If ever there was a fabric that I could fall in love with it is this one. I love tea roses and this fabric speaks to me. I would love a whole room one up in these colors with this print but I will have to settle for a doll sized set!
I admit I am very jealous of my lucky doll! This set came beautifully packaged and great detail to the set. For those of you like me who have a Maplelea Doll, the tooth brush fits perfectly in their hands.
I wear a sleep mask so I love this idea! I also like that the pillow has a way the doll can carry it to the sleep over. The blanket is not a sleeping bag but that leaves so much more play potential and I love that it is felt backed and soft as can be.
Dolls can easily wear and carry their sleepover goodies with the elastic at the bottom of the back back, it holds the blanket which rolls up and has elastic of it's own. It is really a great idea!

I am so thankful to Lemon Bay Doll Company For this gift and thrilled with what they sent! Now to convince them to make one in my size!
