And most important I am looking for my box of Boys clothes!!!
A few years back Paul built me a shelving unit which I was going to use to put room settings but after just a few tries I decided it was to dark in the room and being in the corner it was awkward to get in to take the photo's.
So I decided today to use it for storage rather than have pieces of furniture and then items I have left all over the place, I'd reorganise it.
I decided to take a few photo's along the way, this is one of a little chest of drawers For the baby room.
This is supposed to be a unit for the lounge/living room but just gets left upstairs when I take photo's due to limited space.
This is my dresser that I found in a local second hand furniture shop a few years back, it's very basic and I may at some stage ask Paul to make me a better one but it does look really nice when it's set full of china etc.
A photo of the insides, those dolls house owners amongst you will recognise the two plaster ceiling roses that I bought when I was into Dolls houses and have kept as I may put them into the half finished house one day!!
This is some of the china off the dresser, the cups and saucers are miniature china copies that people collect.
I opened the union jack toy box to find it was doing it's job!! Had of course forgotten half the stuff in there!!
This lovely wooden settle I have had for a few years now and is handy to use for the Sasha's but I am thinking that it would make a good place to sit a couple of my kids n cats girls.
Behind is a build a bear tent that the boys use.
This little wooden table, which I use as a coffee table is in fact a musical box which still works .
Yet more china, this little set is a good size for Sasha although the basket is too big.
Here I have finally started filling the top shelf with bits and pieces, I think it's got the look of an attic about it!!!
I decided to use the second shelf to store my other dolls, this bench, the seat base opens for storage, I bought from ebay a few years back for £9 , it's been a great place to sit some of my kids n cats dolls.
Today Mike, Ava and William are sharing the seat.
Yet another box half full of props!! I will need to go through this and maybe sell some things on!.
Yet more china!! How many tea pots does a Sasha need!!! three in this book it would appear!!
Well evenually the shelves began to fill and I began to be able to walk freely round the room!
The more observant amongst you will notice that Ava's had a change of clothes! and William's now wearing his Duffle coat that's been waiting in the packet it came in for about six months!! Ava's clothes are a gotz doll outfit that I came across while looking in the bigger dolls clothes box, so I thought she'd like to be a little warmer so redressed her.
A closer look at the dolls shelf!
Last a wonky photo of the inside of the clothes cupboard, I have decided that this is a waste and the clothes would be better served in plastic bags in boxes , so that shoes and pants and hair ties etc and can all be kept together, I came across a few items that should have gone with outfits I have since sold on! The space at the very bottom is where I keep four plastic boxes of shoes. So I think I will repack the clothes and use this cupboard for all the smaller boxes.
Well at least it's a lot tidier than it was, there are now only bags of wool and a couple of boxes on the floor, so it's much easier to get about BUT I still cannot find the box of boys clothes!!!! Have they been on ebay selling them off!! I have looked every where!! The box is quite big ! It cannot just have managed to vanish!
It as my lovely sweaters and the boys Passion for Sasha cord trousers in, I want to change them!!! I'm sure a thief would not break in and steal a box of doll boys clothes.......unless he was exceptional small!!!!!
