Shopping Finds, Moreville Celebs And An Interesting Link

I know it's been a little while since I've posted, but I've been working on a bar for Casey's On The Square.  The residents have been bugging me to no end to reopen the place!  It's their favorite watering hole--a friendly, fun and cozy place to hang out.  The place is full on any given night, and on Friday and Saturday nights, it's usually packed.  I hope to be done with the remodel soon and will have pictures of the bar, at least, in a future post.

In the meantime, I went shopping last week and found some things.  I found these Oz dolls at Walmart in Gainesville.

These dolls are ok, but I was very disappointed to discover that their legs aren't bendable at all.  The arms are bendable but not the wrists.  Oz's head is also a tad larger than Ken's.  I can still use him as a bartender or perhaps in one of my story lines.  I haven't tried Ken's clothes on him yet, but they should fit.  Aside from the head size, he and Ken are the same height and have similar body builds. Theodora's jacket fits Barbie, but the pants are a little tight.  Her hips are more slender.

I was really thrilled to find these fashions at Target!  The evening gown is simply gorgeous!  And the Oscar Award is really cute.  I know which one of my Moreville girls will be wearing this on the red carpet and then accepting the Oscar for Best Actress!  Hint:  You haven't met her yet, and it's certainly not Amber!  LOL  I'll have my girls model these in a future post.

Speaking of celebrities, I know of three that have vacation homes in Moreville.

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Debbie Harry all have vacation getaways in Moreville.  They also perform at Casey's from time to time as their busy schedules allow.

Last but not least, I'm posting a link that a friend of mine sent me.  It's an article about a man in Florida who has over 3,000+ Barbies and won't stop collecting them until his whole house in entirely full!  Here's the link: 

And I thought I was bad...:-)


  1. I can't wait to see Casey's. I thought the Oz dolls were interesting and considered buying Theodore for her outfit and Oz for his uniqueness. I can't believe they didn't at least make the legs bendable. If I find them for a really cheap price later on, I will get them for their outfits.

  2. The Oz dolls were $19.95 a piece at Walmart. If I had known their legs didn't bend, I wouldn't have bought them. It's ok. I can still use them in some of my stories, and some of my other girls and guys can wear their clothes. :-)
