Diorama Finds

I purchased a couple of things that I wanted to pass on to people.  Halloween is just around the corner and I know many collectors are into that gothic look and feel.  Someone on Doll Divas posted about a set of black gothic chairs a while back ( sorry I can’t find the original post) and I decided to check them out.  I was a bit skeptical about the sizes but I gambled and won on this one.  They are , in my opinion, the right scale for 1/6 fashion dolls.

You can find these beauties at the Victorian  Trading Company. http://www.victoriantradingco.com/item/80-ha-8023219/100100104/gothic-arm-chairs-set-of-3

They cost $49.95 so that works to $16.65 per chair.  I don’t feel that is exorbitant for three 1/6 scale chairs.  They are made of resin so kind of heavy but not too bad.  One of the kind of cool features is that they have a hanging hook on the back so you could put them on the wall.  It’s kind of an interesting display idea don’t you think?!  I may have to try that one.  Also, it looks like these could be painted as well so there you go.  A big “Thank You” to whoever posted this link on Doll Divas!

While I was perusing my recent Pottery Barn catalog I ran across something interesting.  I am all about Christmas décor planning right now so I was looking at the new ornaments coming out.  They had the most adorable bottle brush dogs as ornaments.  I looked at the sizing and thought  “Hey, I bet those could be really cute as diorama pets!”.

They run from $8.50 to $10.50 a piece.  I was really, really tempted to get the St. Bernard one too but you just have to stop somewhere.  The beauty of these are, they will grace my Christmas tree during the holidays and then grace my dioramas and pictures for the rest of the year.
