Well we here in the village are slowly moving into the new studio. Of course while this happens things are being rediscovered !
Granny Fortuna was seen dancing a jig! but when spotted immediately stopped and grabbed her back as if in pain before hurrying off in search of Bruno and a cart? She's not been seen since. This was while I had the old studio open and was looking at what to move first !
It would appear I have things in many sizes ! So carrying a few items down to the new studio and trying to place them I realised that the top shelf which I really wanted to keep for a few room setting would soon be covered in props!
So this set me to thinking and rearranging ,in my mind, and then a trip indoors and onto the internet to order a shelving unit with glass doors, to go beside the writing bureau in the left hand corner which will hopefully take a good selection of the props and which I can also use for some of the dolls maybe.
Having the door in glass will allow me to find things much easier and also see what I've got.
I moved the two piece that Paul made me based on the American Girl ones. onto the large room setting but I think they may take up too much space, so may land up being used just as backdrops, well the fireplace one.
The window seat would make a good display for a doll or two. I just need to find where I stored it's seat cushion.
This girl is a Dollstown Bjd doll, I bought from a friend recently. I have called her Phoebe and she's getting used to things.
I used Phoebe in the photos as I wanted one for a group I'm on and I wanted to see what she'd look like against these.
A closer look at Phoebe's face.
So if these are a little too big for the space, it means they need a space where they can shine! While waiting to be used......
Congratulations on your new home, villagers!ReplyDelete
Phoebe is a lovely girl - she looks thoughtful and perhaps a little studious - I wouldn't be surprised if she uses that window seat as a place to sit with a stack of library books. How tall is she?
Thank you :)Delete
Phoebe loves a good book and all the children like to tuck themselves on the window seat to read. She's 18 inches tall.
Moving in is always the fun part! Whenever I reorganize things (which isn't often enough) I find all kinds of things that I've been looking for. I think the boys hide them! That's just a wonderful backdrop. I love the mantelpiece and window seat. We definitely need to improve our backdrops here.ReplyDelete
I have to agree.Whenever you need to move anything about , I always come across things I'd forgotten I had or don't even remember !Delete
I always mean to get some of those printed backdrops but it's so hard to decide which ones would be best !
A great start for the studio. I am guessing it will take a while to get things situated the way that makes sense for you. But that is part of the fun. Phoebe looks so sweet. 😊 xxxReplyDelete
It is a start and yes it's going to take a while because I have so much to get sorted over the coming month but then it will be playtime!! :)Delete
You must have so much fun rearranging things, trying out how everything fits... Love the backdrop. And Phoebe could sit quite naturally in the window seat, studying books and magazines on house decoration, and give you some good advice!ReplyDelete
I will , that's one of the things I'm looking forward too, making up the rooms and re-finding all the props I have.Delete
You have given me an idea for something , will reveal all another time :)
Was delighted to see that you have a photo of one of my Graphic eyed dolls hanging above your fireplace!ReplyDelete
Gosh your studio is filling up quickly. Where on earth did you manage to store all these items before?
This is just the tip of a very large ice berg of dolly doings! :))Delete
Phoebe looks great in this room setting, so pensive and as if she's looking around and making herself at home. I have a feeling she's going to be happy there :)ReplyDelete
