I reported on my experience of the NW Dollhouse and Miniature show in my most recent post. Now I'll show you some of the things I bought! Some, however, must remain a surprise, as they will be part of my next blog giveaway! tee hee! :-)
I'll start with the sewing room. I bought a darling Victorian sewing pattern and a roll of mini ribbon from Dragonfly International. I adore them!
I also bought the trunk, which is leaning against the wall. As a child, when this house was built for me by my dad, I planned for this room to be an attic. Later, as an adult, I decided to make it a sewing room. Now it's a combination of the two! Newly resting on top of the trunk is a pattern ready to be cut from blue gingham (purchased from Sue's Little Things). Drora's scissors are ready to do the job:
Next comes the dollhouse study's bookcase. Look at all of the Buddhas and other Asian statues! Sans! gave me the one on the top left, and the rest, including the sampan on the bottom shelf, came from L and B Miniatures. Now we know that the residents of this dollhouse are real lovers of Asian art and culture!
Next, I bought some toiletries (the bottles) from L and B Miniatures and Victorian perfumes (the boxes) from Sue's Little Things:
And here's a Victorian-style basket from Sue's Little Things. Isn't it just like a kitty to lay down in something this cozy? ;-) The basket looks sweet with Klara's mini suitcase, purse, and shoes.
The man of the house needed his own toiletries (boxes from Sue's Little Things), so here they are in the medicine cabinet (which I haven't hung yet) that I purchased from Dot's Doll House.
Finally, here's the kitchen. In my most recent post, you saw the tiny brass candle holders and candles I bought. Now here are a few more sweet purchases for the kitchen. I love the vintage box of Borax,
the jar of cherries,
and the mini Bell's Seasoning box, all from Sue's Little Things.
As I said, the NW Dollhouse and Miniature Show was the most fun EVER! Thanks for taking a look at the photos of my purchases. All of the things I bought are really helping to complete the mood of my house. I can't wait to finish the miniature kits I bought from Dragonfly International. They will help to put some more finishing touches on Dad's Dollhouse! Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer
