Socks not only keep your feet warm, protect them while you are wearing shoes, fashion, provide fun when you slide across shiny marble or laminate flooring, but once you no longer want to use them on your feet you can always turn them into something cute like sock puppets and dolls.
I’ve got a bag full of old socks of different colours, patterns and sizes which I didn’t know what I would do with them. Then I saw these books while browsing.
I know that some creative people have been making sock dolls and puppets for ages. However, for a person who aren’t that creative like myself, books like these are indeed a great help to jog that creative brain cells a little bit.
Now I know what I can do with those socks. The dolls would indeed make great gifts for little kids or adults who just love soft, cute, handmade dolls.
Looking for something to add a little cuteness on your dining table? These cute little sumo wrestlers salt and pepper shakers would definitely do the job. These ceramic shakers are 3″ in height x 2.5″ in width each.
I suppose they would even bring back those good memories of high school wrestling days.
If interested you may be able to find them on Amazon.com selling at $ 20 per set.

Not to long ago I saw my niece playing with paper dolls. I thought they were out of fashion these days, with all the other fashion dolls available in the market. Sure brought back of memories. I played with paper dolls a lot when I was a kid. I remember buying them from the neighbourhood grocery store. They usually come in A4 sized cardboard paper which you can cut out the dolls, clothes and accessories from.
They are cheap and simple yet easy and fun to play with. You can just slip another paper dress when you want to change her clothes.
Following the shape of dresses that came along with the paper dolls you can even cut new dresses from other blank papers for you to design on. Helps develop creativity as well.
The only similarity between the fashion paper dolls and the plastic ones is, they are usually slim, slender girls. Even at a young age we were fed with the idea that – slim is good, fat is not acceptable. *sigh* It seems like most girls are destinied to be on the look out for what are the best diet pills. LOL

DIM for Doll in mind are Korean ball jointed dolls. When I look at them the first time, one word to describe their faces. “Beautiful”.
There are at least 5 categories of the dolls to choose from. Honey, Sweet, Happy, Love and Memory. All of these are different in sizes according to the categories. With ball joints, they can be set to many different poses. Various clothes, shoes, wigs, glass eyes and other cute accessories are available for these beautiful dolls.
The dolls are well made, looking at the beautiful faces of the dolls. Even the bodies are made with great details. They are just amazing.

I love dolls that have personalities. With names and their likes and dislikes etc. If you share the same sentiment with me on this, then I believe you would love the “Only Heart Girls” too.
They are dolls of American girls of different ethnicity. Caucasian-American, Hispanic-American, African-American, and Asian-American. Really colourful.
There are actually 8 of them to collect. Each with their own sweet unique names and characteristics, which you can read on their website at onlyheartsclub.com.
What’s more, there are different outfits, pets, furniture for the only heart girls to collect!
I believe these girls must be Taylor and Olivia in their pajamas with one of the furniture and accesories to collect.
There are plenty of outfits for the girls too. Fashion, sleepwear , swimwear , and more.
Don’t know what you think, but I think they are adorably sweet!
