Mom and I needed some out and abouting, so we went to two of the Daiso (Japanese dollar stores) in the area and found some nice goodies.
picked up some chairs and benches for the yo-scaled dolls, and some
tiny little dog statuettes suited more for Pukifee. She got some other
bits and bobs but we had specifically gone out to get two more of a kind
of doll scaled chair we found there several weeks back, and we had good
I got this:
a sketch pad with ladybugs on the front, 100 pages. Also two different
paperboard boxes for doll accessory storage, one with a London theme,
and one with nesting dolls and little flowers on the lid. There is a
yellow mid-century style chair, a realistic fake plant, tiny paperboard
chest of drawers (also elephant themed), and a waterproof elephant
themed tote. At checkout I got some Hello Panda snacks and on the way
home a large box of cheese crackers.
I like these cardboard boxes

prettier than a bunch of plastic bins. Eventually I would like to get
some floating shelves to put the dolls on stands, and I would put the
decorative boxes on top of the dresser where the dolls have been sitting
since I got the dresser.
I love going into Daiso. I always find
something neat and everything I got today was $1.50 or less, except for
the cheese crackers which I bought at Kroger on the way home.

she pieced together last time we went to Daiso, scaled to the Yo-sd
The rest of my weekend and Monday will be dedicated to
plugging along in my online coursework, and Tuesday and Thursday are on
campus school days. This was a really nice sanity break, and all told I
spent less than $20 at Daiso (combined from both stores), so it didn't
break the bank either.
