Doll Room

My doll room used to be very organised with boxed Barbie doll & friends lining the walls from floor to ceiling.  Undressed dolls, or dolls waiting for TLC , are stored in a chest of drawers and two wardrobes.

When the larger dolls started to arrive it was fine, they slotted in amongst the Barbie dolls, but I soon began to run out of space and I now have no room left other than a narrow walkway.

The doll room doesn’t have all of the doll boxes, backdrops, accessories and items for dioramas, they are filling up another room.  This photograph should embarrass me into thinning down my collection…

Willow & Daisy

Willow and Daisy have been modelling for a company advertising summer holidays.  They wore swimsuits and light summer wear even though the temperatures were freezing.  Between shots they were wrapped in blankets, with hot water bottles, and given hot drinks but it didn’t stop the girls teeth from chattering.  That is dedication 🙂
