Honestly, I rarely happen upon the fun stuff, but this past weekend...wow! Franz and I were in Virginia visiting friends and picking up a few new things for his collections. Our hostess planned a girls' morning at a local multi family yard sale. The third set up I noticed something obviously American Girl and checked it out. Price marked $10 for the set...I knew there were some parts missing, but $10. I snapped up this "set."

Hey, what's this?
I love the butterflies!
Looks like Missy approves of the bed. (giggles)
This is great! A daybed, so we have a fun couch as well as a bed.
Missy definitely approves!
Looks like Bonbon and Coco do too.
I love that it's blue.
It's an interesting blue.
My favorite color.
Do you think your quilt will look good on it?
We'll wait here, you go get it.
Here we go. I think it's great.
Well, maybe not the butterfly pillow. (giggles)
Yeah, we might use that some place else.
Missy still likes it.
I kind of think Lanie's quilt will look better or even Kaya's.
(gasps) But blue...
Let's try putting the bedspread on.
Should be more comfortable this way. (giggles)
Quilts make great mattresses. (giggles)
Yeah, they do! This is great. Oh, Coco...oof...(giggles) I think my quilt will go better with this bedspread.
Yeah, it will!
We're all agreed the bed is really cool.
And the scooter!
Fun, fun, fun!
Can I try?
This is great!
I think we need to take it to a bigger space.
This is awesome!
Here I go!
Hey, come back! (laughing)
My turn! See ya!
- Missing pieces: the trundle drawer, both mattresses, the pillow, and pillowcase. There are some great tutorials to make these items...well, not the trundle drawer.
- Love how the bedding is a nice sturdy cotton fabric with actual embroidered design on the bedspread and sewn on rickrack at the top of the sheets.
- The scooter is outstanding!
So who do you think will get to claim the bed as her own?
The butterfly pillow?
How long do you think it will take Xyra to make a mattress, pillow, and pillowcase?
