The chair is my first miniature, bought somewhere between age 8 and age 10 for $4.20, if I remember correctly. It is a spring rocking chair and is covered in the softest velvet ever. I originally bought it for my dollhouse's livingroom, but it doesn't work well there, so it is here. I wanted to be sure to include it, since it was my first miniature bought for this house (on a sweet outing with my mother).
I fell in love with this mini metal typewriter at a shop in Vancouver, Washington. I guess when I was younger it was a little fantasy of mine to be a writer, so this study with its typewriter fulfills that fantasy for me. I also love a comfortable place to read a book, and between the soft chair and the bookshelf full of books, my needs are well covered.
Now that I'm seeing these photos, however, I see a couple of things that are missing. First, I need to fill the nooks in the desk as I find appropriate items, such as a fountain pen and an ink bottle. Second, there definitely needs to be a cat sleeping on the chair. How could I forget something so obvious?! I love having a cat on my lap while I read. :-)
Of course I love getting mail, especially foreign mail. I had pen pals from several different countries, both as a child and as a young adult. Now with all of the friends around the world who share my interests in miniatures, plushies, and cute things in general, my needs in this area have been completely fulfilled. :-)
Speaking of foreign mail, a few minutes ago I received a lovely package from Carmen in Spain! I won a prize in her giveaway just last week, and now here it is! I will write about her lovely gifts in my next blog post. Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer
