For this addition of Mini Find Monday we actually found two different style things that incorporates two scales, 1:12th and 1:6th for extra fun. The first is pool toys for your 1:6 scale playscale dolls and the second is some pink flamingos for your 1:12 scale dollhouse yard. Both of these where found at Target in the part goods section.
The pool floats for 1:6 scale are actually blow up floating drink holders, but the perfect size for the 1:6 scale dolls. One really good factor to them too is that because they are drink holders they have a bottom, which means your dolls can float without having to get wet unless you want them to. Or you could carefully cut the bottom where the drink would sit out and have it be an actual inter tube.
The flamingo measures six and a half inches across, seven and a half inches long, two and a half inches tall at the top of the ring, and six inches to the top of its head. The pineapple measures six and a half inches across, ten inches long and two and a half inches tall. Each are perfect for playscale and looks so cute used with the dolls.
The pink flamingos that can be used for 1:12 scale lawn decorations are actually swizzle sticks. They are made of a hard plastic so you do need a small handsaw to cut them down to the right height to use on a dollhouse lawn. The are slightly translucent but if the sun hits them it makes them really pretty. They could also be used without cutting them if you where putting them into pot or ground with a fairy garden.
They are eight inches tall as a whole stick with the flamingos being one and three quarters tall and two inches wide at the furthest points. Which is a very nice size for 1:12 scale fun.
If you want to see how we did up the flamingos we have a tutorial coming on Wednesday, to show how we did it and what we used to be able to put them on the lawn of the Mid-Century Beachside Bungalow.

This week’s mini find is a barbecue setup for your 1:6 scale dolls. The two pieces came out of the Target dollar section so they are on the very affordable side; one is a barbecue grill decoration, the other is the a set of food erasers.
The barbecue grill is actually a decorative item for your home and came in at least two different colors. Our Target had the pink one that I got and a blue green one. Now the one little thing is that it does not have a grate, but that can be easily remedied. If you can find berries that still come in the little plastic crates those would be amazing, I personally couldn’t so I ended up using some chicken wire ribbon I had gotten at Hobby Lobby. Now, if you want a plastic solution and can’t find the crates, you can use plastic needlepoint canvas in the same way, just cut it in a circle and away you go. You can also paint any of it to be any color you desire to fit your aesthetic. Now for the size, the barbecue grill is seven inches tall closed and five inches tall open, with the diameter of the grill three and a half inches across. So it would make a very good little grill for 1:6 scale dolls.
The erasers are a little big for 1:6 scale, but they add a cute way to get some food for your dolls and could even be used as cakes. They do give the grill character though.
The hot dog measures an inch and three-quarters long, and one inch wide. The hamburger measures an inch and one-quarter in diameter and is a half-inch wide. Like I said they are a little big but for play, or cakes they would work well for 1:6 scale.
We haven’t mentioned much about the shop yet or started on any tutorials, as hard as I’ve been trying to get it all running smoothly, it’s been difficult. I’m hoping in the next coming weeks to get everything in a semblance of order. I hoping to be able to make one post a week on here, with different varying content. That should be rolling into being at the beginning of May.
Now on to the shop update… During the month of April we have had the addition of quite a bit of 1:12 scale bedding and pillows.
Lots of modern and rustic or country chic have been added with brights colors and pastels are coming up next. We have also started to begin to carry more 1:6 scale and some 1:24 scale is on its way.
The majority of the items that are on their way are soft things bedding, pillows, and such but their are also some furniture pieces that are getting ready to make their way into the shop.
Blog wise I want to introduce you to our other house, a log cabin, and I also have two simple tutorials in the works.
Before I go, I’ll show some of the pillows that have been added to our shop BnBKreationz on etsy.
