No such luck shopping

Crystal: "Well hello Matoaka, Chanta."
Matoaka: "How are your Crystal. I  haven't seen you in awhile."
Crystal:  "It has been awhile and things are going good."
Matoaka: "How is everyone? Especially the twins."
Crystal: "Everyone is good and those two brings so much joy to everyone life, with their busy selves."
Matoaka: "Are you done with all the school shopping?
Crystal: "Just about. Princess Courtney gives me a list everyday."
Chanta: "Excuse Mom, Mrs. Crystal. I'll be right back."
Matoaka: "Ok. Make sure to check housewares for the organizers."
Crystal: "You shouldn't have any problem. It's not that crowded today."

Crystal: "What type of organizers is she looking for?"
Matoaka: "I dont' know. She wanted to pick them up for a friend of hers while we were here."
Crystal: "Ooohhhh, I see. Hopefully she will find them."
Matoaka: "I hope so. According to the catalog it's available in store only. Would you like to go and have coffee?"
Crystal: "Sounds good to me."

40 minutes later...

Chanta: "Hey Ollie. I have walked all around this store and couldn't find the organizers that you needed."
Oliver: "Oh wow. Thanks for checking. I guess they are out. Will I see you later?"
Chanta: "Maybe,  I am soo ready to go. I have spent to much time in this store and see a whole lot of things I could spend my money on, hee, hee. I"ll talk to you later, Bye."

Back with her mother...
Chanta: "Mom, I'm sorry I wasted your time today."
Matoaka: "I had a good time with Crystal. You did not waste my time. Sorry you didn't find what you you were looking for. Let head over to TJ Maxx or Burlington's."
Chanta: "Works for me. Although I'm getting hungry now."

Courage, determination, pride..that's what little girls are made of.

  1. Hi! Great photos :-) I was delighted to read your story. My dolls and me love Ikea too and Huset sets are our favorites. Hugs!

    1. Thank you. I love wondering around the store and feeling inspired.

  2. Great photos, Brini. Ahhhh...the trials and tribulations of Back to School shopping. (But now that I'm not doing it, I do miss it!)

  3. I don't know how to superimpose on a background. You do a great job with that. Nice story.

    1. Thanks! I wish I could have a whole city for my dollie to hang out in.
