....all made up.....

...as promised this is the story of
my smelly filthy dirty dolly wardrobe...
..despite its misgivings..
...squirrel loved it...
...and had plans...
..so first stop was a jolly good bubbly scrub!
...so satisfying to see layers of grime 
just wipe away....
...as it was still a bit musty inside
my new samantha stas lavender bag
found a new home amongst the little pastel dolly hangers...
..in true squirrel style..
 there had to be some ribbon...
...i then had mod podge fun
...covering the shelves with fabric...
(i was very excited by this point)
...then came the really fun bit...
...folding up a little stash of some of my favourite nursery and ditsy fabrics...
...a little pile of vintage quilty scraps..
..and a little tin of doilies 
and embroidered hankies...
..ta daaaaa!
...not perfect..
...but i love it!
....as the front sections don't open out completely it's hard to show you
the full effect....
...you'll have to come round ...
...oh and bring your dollies!

  6. Just lovely, but shame on whoever sold it in a smelly state! I never liked dollies (found them a bit spooky) but I still have my favourite monkey I could bring! M x

    ps I've always found a teaspoon of mustard powder in a bowl of warm water used to wash things down completely removes musty smell (and no, it doesn't stay smelling of mustard!)
