I have been terribly busy and unable to finish the photo story I started, but at Little Jewell's insistence I am going to share a couple of diorama goodies I picked up at my local craft stores.
First up is this pair of beach chairs I found on sale at Hancock Fabrics. It was mentioned at our April doll club meeting that a nearby location was having a store closing sale. A group of us decided to head over after the meeting to check out the fabric selection. I found these on a table of spring decor and could tell right away they were Barbie-sized. Georgia Girl convinced me to go ahead and buy them even though I wasn't crazy about the price or the painted stripes.

Next, we ventured down the walkway to Michael's and that's where Rita found a roll of canvas (see below) that she thought could be used to make over our beach chairs. It was on sale, and since a roll was way more than one needed to customize a couple of chairs, we purchased and split one roll among the three of us.

Michael's was having another great sale. Alas, the item we were looking for was not on sale that week. It was this new scrap book paper in white brick. Check it out in the bar below. The scale is just right, and it's a nice alternative to that brown brick from Joann's.

Well, that's all for now. I hope to have that story finished soon. Bye!
