I thought it was time to take another peek inside the dollhouse to see what kinds of things the dolls have been up to. It looks like the Mistress of the Manor has returned from her shopping trip to Paris and has brought home a sweet little hat. This is my Club Little House submission this time around and I'm really pleased with everything now that it's done. However, I'm still waiting on two hat stands to arrive by post, but the rest is all packed and ready to go, so I shouldn't be holding up the show long, as I feared might happen. The pink valise was made by Amy herself, it's so cute and has travel labels on it, and even a little button & loop closure. Just right for those weekend get-aways. The yo-yo quilt works on the bed and as a little rug. It was made by Debra, along with the bed pillows, complete with crochet lace and a sweet lavender bouquet. I hope I have that right. Once I took the tags off and started "playing" with all the things that came out of that wonderful box it was hard to remember, but I think that was from her too. I love how it ties in with the theme I've got going in here. That tiny embroidered pillow was a commissioned piece from Rosanna over in Italy. I've never seen anything so small and charming as this, all done so perfectly. The pink bear was also another piece she sent and just look how cute it is in the nursery. The children are having a party today. Jenny made the teensy flag banner and it couldn't be more festive. I love it. The dollhouse children got so excited when they saw it they ran around the room in wild abandon. They were finally sent outside to play by Nanny Nellie, who has her hands quite full at the moment and didn't care for the noise. She hasn't noticed that little Bettie has snuck back inside to play with her new teddy. And where is the Mistress of the Manor anway? I thought she was busy working in her studio, but apparently she stepped out to visit a sick friend. It appears she's made something to cheer her back to health. Wonder what it could be? Her well-stocked craft cabinet is certainly full of interesting bits and bobs, compliments of Cerri. Chest of sewing lovlies made by Glenn and Victoria, post-mod table from Emma.
