Sort of ... I say this because I'm not actually 'looking' but am in the studio and moving things around, so hoping it will appear as if by magic !!
Well I asked the question this morning, can you put some beading on the shelves so the plates can stand and he said yes ! Didn't mention not having asked yesterday and even found some old beading that had aged just like the unit !
Of course I had to wait for the glue to dry , which was a pain but spent the time moving things about but eventually I could put a couple of the plates up on the lower shelf.
I was starting to gather together Granny's shop items, which had a knock on effect of having to move other items , then the blue shop shelves on the right did not look right one what was available for them to sit on, so I decided that I'd have a word with Paul about making me a base for them.
Which meant I came to a stop !
However that turned out to be good because it meant I heard the doorbell when my two new to me pieces of furniture arrived !
I wasn't expecting them until new week at the earliest, so am very happy.
This is the armchair I bought, it's a great size for all the dolls.
Claudia tried it out for comfort. The second item I bought
was this lovely wicker sofa ,I especially liked that it needed a cushion/seat pad for the base.
Bea and Hattie try it out for size, even though they complain about having to sit on the canes!
I had a quick look in my fabric stash and pulled out these.
This is a deeper mustard yellow needlecord that shows in photo.
A floral cream background needlecord.
or this white with blue design. So which one to use ? or do I go looking for a nice bright floral as was my original plan ? And I'm sure I have some small Morris fabric somewhere.... all opinions welcome !
Out of these three I'm liking the last one best , or do I find something better !
