Doll Closets for Sale // Ad

Hello, friends!

Tori and Bella from agsparklesisters are selling two super cool-looking doll closets. They seem to be from either Journey Girls or Springfield. They’re pretty tricked out, with two drawers, a ribbon that you can tie around a doll’s waist, bars for hangers, latches to close it,  and a handle on top.

Both of the closets are being sold with eight American Girl hangers.

The closets are being sold for $15 (US) each. You can see all the pictures on Tori and Bella’s blog HERE. If you’re interested in buying one of closets or have questions, email the girls at agsparklesistersblog@gmail.com.

I don’t usually do ads, but Tori and Bella are blogging friends, so I thought I’d help them out. 🙂

I can do a post about how I store my dolls’ clothes, if you guys are interested? I could also use some tips on organization, but it is not a very neat system. XD

Mermaid Tails for American Girl Dolls

Now, one thing you should know about me is that I really, really like mermaids. I think they’re amazing, and I like writing stories about them, and I’d definitely love to have a mermaid tail for myself.

During my quest to find a reasonably priced mermaid tail, I discovered the site FinFun. And lo and behold, they sell super pretty mermaid tails:

Fin Fun Celtic Green Mermaid Tail

Sadly, I currently do not have enough money to buy a $100+ mermaid tail.

What does this post have to do with American Girl dolls? you may be wondering. It sounds like you’re just complaining about not being a mermaid.

Well! This website also sells . . . mermaid tails for AG dolls!

They come in all the same colors as the human-size tails, but they’re only $12.95! If I can’t be a mermaid, my dolls can.

Caution: visiting FinFun.com may cause you to wish you were a mermaid, which often results in purchasing a tail from aforementioned website.

Truly Me Quiz Results

*I did not come up with this idea. Madison from Delightful World of Dolls published a post like this awhile ago.*

You guys know about the Truly Me quizzes on the American Girl website, right? Well, I went through and did all of them, and decided to post the answers on my blog. So, there will be a picture with the results, and then I’ll write whether I think it’s accurate or not.

Starring You! quiz.

They got this one right — I am independent, and I like creating — that’s why I like writing and photography. And I’m an introvert, too, so I like working by myself. But I feel like “bohemian” wasn’t the right word for them to use. I looked up the word, and the definition of bohemian is “a person who has informal and unconventional social habits.”

02-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 55513 PM

What Makes You Happy? quiz.

idk, man. All those things sound pretty sweet, but I’ve never actually been to a concert or gone on many rollercoasters, so I can’t confirm the accuracy of this one. (Hey, Mum, I’ve got an idea — how about we go to an amusement park and an Owl City concert? I’m researching the accuracy of an online quiz [with poor grammar; seriously, what’s with the “&tmdash?”].)

04-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 55640 PM

What’s Your Spring Thing? quiz.

(Hahaha, what a weird name for a quiz.)

(Also, the girl looks like a vampire.)

Yes. Yes. Yes. Soccer is usually a spring sport. That’s really the only thing I like about spring: it’s the first soccer season of the year. So, yeah — good job on this one, American Girl.

03-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 55616 PM

This was one of the questions on the “Spring Thing” quiz . . . I was a bit weirded out, because that is basically exactly what I wear most of the time.

06-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 55837 PM

What’s Your Love Language? quiz.

Nah. Wrong. I know what my love language is, and it’s GIFTS. (I’m not greedy, I promise.) I’m guessing that the only reason I got Sweet Words as my answer was because if there was an answer that had to do with writing or books or English, I clicked on it. I’m a writer, what can I say.

05-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 55652 PM

I kid you not, I saw the quiz description and immediately thought of Annabeth Chase saying “You drool when you sleep.” Percabeth foreveeeeer.

07-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 60026 PM

Are You Open to Adventure? quiz.

Again, don’t know if this is entirely accurate or not (I guess I don’t know myself very well, huh?). The idea of an adventure is thrilling, and I’d definitely say yes to going on one, as long as it wasn’t something spontaneous. I need time to stress about said adventure before going on it. 😉

08-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 60216 PM

Personality Predictor quiz.

(What’s up with American Girl’s grammar on these quizzes? I’m looking at you, suspicious “you?re.”)

I do like being a leader . . . but “practical and organized?” Ha ha ha . . . no. I’m not practical, OK? And you would most definitely not call me organized if you could see my room, doll area, and backpack.

09-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 60354 PM

Are You a Class Act? quiz.

Nah, bro. I’m a very good student (ask my mum). I found that most of these questions were more about class participation than actually working hard on getting good grades. Now, I’m not trying to brag here, but I get fairly good grades without trying too hard. Although, if you looked at my score on Science tests last year, you would see the percentages dropping near the end . . . just because I was so ready to finish school.

10-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 60719 PM

What’s Your Style? quiz.

Pretty sure we already discussed how unorganized I am. My room is not clutter-free. But bold colors and geometric patterns sound like things I’d like. 🙂

11-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 60948 PM

The Secret’s Out of the Bag! quiz.

(Quiz not actually about secret-keeping.)

*bursts into applause* Good job, American Girl — you got one right! My backpack is extremely heavy. It’s filled with pens and notebooks and writing how-to books and crumpled up papers. On the first day of co-op, when it was the lightest that it was going to be all year, I got my friend Kelsie to carry my bag for me. She grabbed the handle with one hand, and her arm was literally pulled towards the ground under the weight of the backpack.

Singing Sensation quiz.

Yeah, writing! *fist bumps fellow writers*

13-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 61323 PM

What’s Your Recipe for Making Friends? quiz.

Yeah, right. You just called the socially awkward Queen of the Introverts “totally comfortable in new environments.” If I’m somewhere new and I only know one person, I will shadow them and not utter a single word the whole time.

1-Quizzes Truly Me Play at American Girl - Mozilla Firefox 6142016 70910 PM

What Kind of Friend Are You? quiz.

YEAH.

I’M A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE.

(Special is a nice way of saying weird.)

If I’m not in a sociable mood (which is most of the time) or I don’t know you well, I will be shy. But around my friends, I am insane.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading this post! I’ve never posted anything like it before. If you haven’t already, I’d recommend taking the Truly Me quizzes on the American Girl site. Just remember not to think of the results as law: these are inaccurate quizzes on the internet simply made to entertain you. 🙂

Buzz About AG

Hi! Today I’ve put together a post on how to keep your dolls looking their best, outfit ideas, photography tips, and more. Here, you do the math. Good outfit+awesome hairstyle+’healthy’ doll= great photoshoot= amazing blog!

OUTFIT IDEAS


MIX AND MATCH. Guys, you can make so many outfits with different pieces. I try to make my dolls look trendy and cute. Here are 3 outfits- all with the same shorts.

DSC04816.JPGThis one is bright and makes me think of summer. 🙂 DSC04817.JPGLazy day outfit! DSC04818.JPGSame as before, but cuter- with a vest and black sandals. Also, what I do is pick out the base for the clothes first, like a simple tee and pants, and then add shoes and accessories. (sample outfit idea: short sleeve t-shirt, black leggings, brown boots, high ponytail, wristwatch)

Does your blog have a certain theme? Mine does! It’s bee- themed, so that’s why my header picture is…

Dragged From the Archives: The Trip

Hello! I decided to post something new (er, old?) today, something never before seen on Happy House of AG.

Dragged From the Archives!

Basically, I re-publish an old post, so that more people can see it. This particular one was published in October 2014. Enjoy!

The Trip

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

HOW’S IT BEEN ON THIS BLOG WITHOUT ME??!!

DSC_0346

LAME, I’M SURE.

WHAT’S THAT? YOU’RE TIRED OF ME YELLING AT YOU ALREADY?

Fine, I’ll stop. But not because you asked.

OK, so I’ll bet that you’re wondering about the title, because Tracy + 2 word title + TRIP = awesomeness.

But yeah, I did go on a trip.

DSC_0347

The first thing I did on that boring car trip was eat a bag of LAY’S!

DSC_0348

Yes, they are amazing, and yes, I will not share with you.

DSC_0349

Oh, and I did manage to smuggle some mints into the car. And no, they are not for you.

DSC_0352

We stopped to eat at a place called Western Sizzlin’!

DSC_0353

XD

DSC_0354

 . . . . . . . . . What the lime peels are you looking at??? *grabs at the top of head* Oh, this? Yeah, that’s just my friend the spider.

DSC_0355

So, I meet this girl named Julie, er, Kelly. I kept calling her Julie, but . ..

She had really messy hair! And above is just the front.

DSC_0356

Here’s the back. Anyway, Mom decided to tame this lion’s mane. It took her a looooong time!

DSC_0357

One section done!

DSC_0358

So, when Mom was finally done, she gave Juli — I MEAN Kelly, some new clothes, and pulled her hair back in a half- fishtail. OK, I’ll just call her Julie, because or else I’ll drive myself insane.

DSC_0359

Her hair looked a lot better after that!

DSC_0360

Mom managed to snap a few pictures of me the next morning before we hit the road for home.

DSC_0361

(ACK, it was supposed to focus on the hand >:0)

DSC_0362

DSC_0363

In the car, I took a nap — Indiana Jones style ;D (#bro/uncle’s legs)

DSC_0364

Sparkly . . . 😮

DSC_0368

When I woke up, I listened to music on my uncle’s iPod. Particularly Counting Stars — that’s my favorite! But he doesn’t let me and Mom hear that song very much, because then Mom will start singing, and Uncle thinks that she sounds TERRIBLE. (Which I DON’T!!)

DSC_0369-001

The church we go to had their annual Fall Festival last night. You come in costume, and Mom was Emily Windsnap! Above is her costume. (Oh, and foot xP)
