The Inner Sanctum….of the doll room
First of all, let me thank my friend Jenn for her comment on Flickr that prompted the idea for the title. Yesterday I shared photos of the landing area right outside the actual doll room. I have never really decorated this area for the holidays before so it was fun to show off some of the displays and ideas I have done this year. Today, I will share photos of the actual doll room. I normally have a table in the middle of the room ( it comes out from the wall which is also a wall bed) but for the tea party I needed to allow for as much space in there as I could get so people could see the collection and displays.
The doll room displays have changed from previous years. If you want to see displays from previous years check out my youtube video here….
Perhaps the biggest change in the doll room for this holiday season is that the vintage reproduction section was put into storage and the Silkstones took up residence in the corner area. My “ Belles Choses” boutique moved to the spacious venue bellow the display area and more silkies were moved there to shop. Shopgirls office( at the top of the stairs) had to downsize and Fashion Designer Silkstone ( always Edith Head in my mind as I believe that is who Mr. Best designed her after) got her own space and it looks like she has designed a red gown for the young starlett looking in the mirror. I did manage to maintain one vintage reproduction shelf as an homage to the fabulous Barbie conventions I have been to.
