I've been working on this for almost a year. I moved all the furniture, recataloged all the books, put up pictures and decorations and it's finally done! Pretty much. A lot of my miniature scenes are under construction.
|This is a shelf my grandparents gave me when I was a teen. It has all my|
little special things on it.
|I used Ikea shelves to provide shadow boxes for my dolls and miniatures.|
This is a Ginny doll that belonged to my grandmother (actually, it might have belonged to
my aunt, but I never met her. I was given it after my grandmother's death)
|This is my most complete miniature scene.|
|This scene is, as you might guess, not complete. It's going to be|
a sort of fancy music room/conservatory, hence the flowers
and the color scheme of mostly white.
|Some of my Madame Alexander dolls that belonged to my mother|
The teddy bear is mine and the big doll belonged to my grandmother.
|I gave away most of the AG accessories, but I do have a few things left.|
|My miniature book collection and Beatrix Potter books|
|This scene is supposed to be a kind of funky cafe. I need at least one more set|
of tables and chairs and some pictures for the walls.
|This country kitchen is almost complete, but I need a stove - I think I lost|
or gave away the one I had.
|Beatrix Potter tea set I've had since I was little.|
|My stuffed animals and a pillow made out of my grandmother's sewing bag|
|The whole shelves|
|You can see my record collection here and my dried flowers and vases on top|
|My reading corner - those shelves have all my children's books and my collection|
of mini Ikea stuffed animals. The picture I bought when my library sold off our art collection
|The whole thing! I do intend to get a small, high table to go in the empty spot by the window.|
I'll use it for beading and puzzles.
|The top of my lower shelf has various pictures on the back of the bookshelves and then|
different things - mostly parts of my bowl collection - on top.
|This little corner has my second chair, my dolls, my picture that my mom made, and some beading things I hung|
on the wall, since I rarely actually wear jewelry but I enjoy making it.
|My puzzles and various bits of tools and such. Still have a stack of records I'm going through|
and you can see my new freezer!
|My new freezer - and my new bag!|
|This set of shelves by the kitchen is mostly empty, but I do have some extra doll clothes|
(with baking soda because they had been packed away for a while and smelled a bit musty)
|A few more bowls and my Ikea guinea pig and panda from San Diego|
|This is going to be a kind of greenhouse|
|This will be a nursery/Christmas scene.|
|All the plants in the bedroom are doing well.|
|This is as tidy as my clothes closet gets (yes the vast bulk of my clothing|
consists of t-shirts and socks)
|and the craft shelves, which have not been organized or tidied and probably won't for a long time|
