Logan joins AG Talk!

A few years ago (2011 actually) my youngest son created a band with his American Girl dolls called AG-Talk. Here are a couple of pictures of his set ups:

Finally! An AG Boy doll!

We already had a couple of AG boy dolls here that were customized from regular American Girl Dolls (link here to read about them). But it was absolutely fantastic to finally be able to have an American Girl made boy doll! Meet Logan Everett!

Wellie Wishers - Kendall

American Girl has recently come out with a new doll line -- WellieWishers! These all vinyl play dolls are geared for children 4-7 years old. But they are so cute that I thought I needed one in my Doll House!

Here is Kendall and the WellieWishers' pet rabbit, Carrot!

Now for the 14th different American Girl Store that we have gotten to visit.... American Girl Place - Los Angeles! What a beautiful and big store! And the area of the Grove is stupendous! We especially love the Farmers' Market directly across the street. You could get lost in there for days!

Another year, another Girl of the Year....Lea!

We went to AG-Atlanta for my birthday this year (again!) and my new little Bitty (Missy) went with us. Here are my new Lea and little Missy enjoying a bit of brunch in the Bistro!

Roller Skating Waitress

I couldn't resist taking this photo of Spring (#20) after she kept sliding all over the slick floor in her new Our Generation skates:

"This job of waitressing on roller skates is HARD!"

This set up is of the Our Generation (Target brand) Retro Diner, Retro Roller Skater Outfit, & Retro Bop-til-you-Drop Outfit.

(FYI: she does stand up easily on carpet!)

Petite Patisserie for Grace!

I bought the Wal-mart brand "My-Life-As" Snack-Stand ($27.97). Disclaimer: the Wal-mart on-line photo isn't the same as what's in the store. It now has chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cupcakes, a lavender/white canopy and a lavender cash register.

I painted the canopy stripes black and printed off a front view of Grace's Patisserie which I glued on (and then covered with laminate).

I also added in treats from the Target brand Our Generation Tea Set ($16.99), along with treats from various swaps on AGPlaythings. -- YUMMY!!

The finishing touches are the tiny bags and boxes printed off and assembled using this idea/template from blog (free).

Now Grace and mini-Grace are ready to make and sell their goodies for much less than any treat set at AG.

UPDATE: I made a small platform with wheels out of things I found after dismantling some extra "Build-and-Grow with Lowes" stuff this afternoon. And spray painted red to contrast the cart.

Still looking for the white cabinet handle that I know is around here somewhere. I plan on gluing that to the end of the Cart where Grace's hands currently are, so she can push it around.

UPDATE 3/4/15:
Didn't find the handle, so ordered one from Lowe' (direct link to the handle I ordered) and super-glued it to the cart.

Completed Petite Patisserie!
