This little chair came home with me from the charity shop the other day.

I don’t really know why as no-one in the house plays with dolls.

Although, now it’s next to my lovely felt dog


I want to make a Julie Arkell inspired doll for it. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Much nicer than going to the bank, supermarket, library and post office as planned.

You know the only thing stopping me spending all day making a doll? The thought of going to the bank and supermarket etc with the boys tomorrow…

I’m getting my coat!

    Both chair and dog have given me a classic case of the Domesticali wanties. What a great term that is. They are gorgeous. I would have bought the chair too.

    Today, instead of going to the store and the bank, I stayed home and made doll clothes for my granddaughter. I had forgotten how much fun it is to make doll clothes.
    The little dog needed that chair. They are both in perfect size to each other. But they do need a mistress to made their lives complete
