Welcome to the Doll Room!

Grace and Boo Bear would like to welcome you to the doll room.

I keep wondering how to make my doll room hold more dolls and look better, too. So I decided to take some doll boxes and make a place for a few more to sit down.

I used the old quilt (that I rescued HERE and almost ruined and then fixed HERE) for a pretty place for dollies to sit.

This looks like the stand up dolls are wondering how they lost their place.

Now I have them standing up in front.

And all the while, others are having a tea party!

I love my dolls and it’s fun to work in my doll room. Elfie was handmade by my friend Brenda at The Rusty Thimble HERE. He’s wonderful, isn’t he?

And don’t ask how old I am. haha!

I still like to PLAY!

Remember my Wednesday Wee Ones HERE?

What fun. I think your dolls and my dollhouses would love to get together. Have fun planning a Christmas tea party!

Kathy said...

A lovely collection and bravo to you for making time for play!!
Did those walking dolls come with the stands or did you buy them somewhere? I need a couple for my art room companions but haven't found a good source.

Oh, Diane... I should really just not comment here today...LOL.. I have always been petrified of dolls and I'm sure it has alot to do with those stupid horror movies I watched as a kid.

Whatever you put together always has charm and the love of home.

OK, You know you caught my eye first thing this morning, Diane!! What beautiful dolls! Gracie is so pretty and I love that redhead wearing the green shorts outfit. Gorgeous! Can I come and join in the tea party?
Hugs, have a wonderful week,
Dorothy and Ms. Wilma

I had no idea you had so many beautiful dolls! Creating small scenes, little vignettes are a wonderful way to show them off.

Vee said...

I enjoyed the refresher on the rescued quilt. What a sweet Christmas party your dolls are enjoying! It looks as if it is a happy place for the dolls and friends and for you! I'd love to see it in person.

Wowsa......that's a lotta dolls! Don't forget, I take custom orders if you ever want a Paperclay dolly.

You tell me what you want him/it/her to look like and I'll make it

Hugs,

You have a beautiful collection of dolls. Love how they have a tea party...oh yes the little girl in you is happy!

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Now we're takin', love the dolly/bear/toy room. It's fun looking all around at all the pretties.

Our craft room is still a mess, Mom works every afternoon up here, but there is so much to arrange, and cabinets and shelves to hang up, but it's fun to have a brand new craft room.
It will all get done and then we'll forget all about the mess of unpacking.

Big Hugs
Prudence ♥

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

Sweet! My mom collects dolls too. You have a wonderful collection.

Jeanne said...

Oh My! you have quite the doll collection. I love them all.

Cranberry Morning said...

They are all so sweet! But I love the photo of Grace and Boo Bear best of all. What a beautiful picture! All your dolls remind me that if I see a doll face down, for some odd reason, I cannot leave it, but have to pick it up and set it up!

I wonder how late the dolls party after you've gone to bed at night! ;-)

Susan said...

Thanks for sharing. Great job! Susan

Your header is beautiful and I love your new little pic on the side bar. You are so cute and so petite.

Good luck in the giveaway over at Kathy's too.

You have quite the collection of beautiful dolls. I have a collection too but more primitive country cloth dolls. Either way they are fun to look at and display.

I love your doll room. I should have a room just for stuffed animals.
I love the idea of them having a table just for their own parties.
