First, I'd like to thank you all for your sympathetic words regarding my failed estate sale purchases from my last post. It's always nice to know that I'm not completely crazy, and that others feel the same way I do! I'm over my disappointment now though, and considering what I'm showing you in this post, it's probably a good thing that my efforts were thwarted during my little estate sale venture!
Above are photos of the entrance to my studio from the years 2008, 2011, and from today. Hmmm, do you notice anything happening in there over the years? Other than the aqua paint color looking like it's changed three times (it hasn't), I think that there's been just a bit of
hoarding collecting going on, don't you think?
Ever since I started seriously collecting dollhouses, space in my studio has been an issue, as I'm sure you can imagine. I always seem to find room for one more, but it's been getting harder and harder! So I finally convinced my wonderful husband to build me some extra shelves in the ol' studio.
They run from the white cabinet to the opposite wall...
...then wrap around the corner to the other cabinets. While I did lose a bit of wall space, I gained a ton of shelf space, which is what I needed! As you can see, the perfect amount of space to display some more dollhouses! And also more space for my other doll furniture and other collectibles.
The shelves in the cabinets over here are all full,...
... as are the tops of the cabinets! I am a master at stuffing it all in, I tell ya!
So, now that you've seen the overall picture, I'll show you some little bits of eye candy from around the room, because of course, that's the whole reason I collect this stuff- it's so fun to look at!
Well, there you have it- the latest state of my studio. I hope you enjoyed it! I still think I could stuff one or two more dollhouses in there, don't you?
