The dolly house progress is pretty slow.
Our son needs the space where the nursery is in our old house, where we left almost all of my personal dolls.
Last night, I was finally able bring the dolls over to our new home.
Now, MOST will remain in boxes and totes but there were a few that I HAD to unpack last night and add to what I already had on display in the studio.
I could not leave my antique dolls packed. I was too worried about them.
The tall girl is a 1919 JD Kestner doll given to me by a dear collector of mine:
The baby in the carriage is also a JD Kestner doll from 1910, given by the same collector:
I bought that carriage at the Sauder Village show in Ohio last August and had it shipped home. It cost me a FORTUNE! It is so perfect for this baby.
The other little one I had to unpack was my very special Marine boy who my very special Marine boy son gave to me during one of his deployments:
I will treasure them both, always :)
I did a little re-arranging of babies that were already there and stored some furniture for later use in the Dolly House.
It was just fun playing and relaxing a bit and it feels SUPER good to have my dolls "home".
I truly love the space I have in the studio to display some of my dolls.
Today is our Friday so I'll be off working in the dolly house as well as hopefully moving all of my personal nursery things that are left in the old nursery to a new storage area so that the room may be used by our son. Everything is packed up and torn down (cribs, changing table etc) and ready to move.
Have a good weekending and weekend!
