A busy day! A dream! A room!

Its Saturday evening, and all day I have been so busy running after everyone else and I needed to put my feet up and have a cup of tea, and no matter how hard I tried something always came up!


I bought a set of white wire furniture a couple of months ago, to use for a garden scene, and didn't get round to it. Since I don't have a conservatory or a garden for my dolls, I wasn't sure how I was going to use them.

I finally gave up and decided to sell them, so I brought them out of "my box of stuff" yesterday, to take pictures of them. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle today, I'd forgotten about them, then this evening while I was rushing around I had a lovely thought!

Wouldn't it be nice to go on holiday for a few days, just to get refreshed....well since I can't do that now :-) I decided to create a scene to reflect, the type of place I'd like to go to.

I would love somewhere homely, yet quiet!

With my eyes closed I could see it......pretty, feminine.......To be able to walk into the reception area and for it to feel cosy, almost like someone else's house and not a hotel ....mmmmmm

The lovely fragrance of the numerous flowers would fill the air!...and the scent of freshly brewed coffeee mmmmm or maybe tea :) and cookies haha! cool

I remembered the white wire furniture and decided to use it, and here's the result. I think the white wire furniture works beautifully :-) who would have thought!

The red and white tulips are a gift from my sister and the vases they are in are made by me from stuff around the house :)
a love seat?!

a cosy dining area set up for 2 :)


  1. A beautiful scene and beautiful furniture! Very romantic and with a relaxing feeling! I would have kept them, chances are there will be another summer next year :-)
    I have also summer projects I didn't finish, but hopefully I will finish them when the spring comes.

  2. Thanks for such lovely comments, Pubdoll
    After seeing the pictures of this scene I was tempted to keep them, but I need to make space for more unfinished projects ;-) and you're right there is always next summer :-)

  3. Amazing scene, you've found some great pieces of furniture! Besides I'm crazy about wicker furniture! Looks so cosy! I tried to make an armchair one day, it was so much fun!

  4. Thank you Victoria :-)
    I'm glad you like it!
