Back to LaBelle's-- the jewelry cabinet

I made much more progress on the doll room today. I got my other table in the corner near the window, purchased three or more plastic tubs to put dolls in, and also got the fake cafe storefront and fake boutique window set up on the large table display. My shelves are deep enough, but this morning I had planned to have two shelves for props and two for dolls. After prop placement, I figured out that I would need more shelves for props, hence the buying of bins for dolls. I don't want to put all of my dolls away- and I won't, but I have no choice. The town on the table is not as large, so I will have to have some dolls in bins when they are not in a scene or not in use.

Now to the jewelry cabinet. I did a great job on this- tidying up. I have had this Louis XV cabinet/curio in 1:6 scale for some time now. One of the most hardest items to keep track of is the tiny jewelry and purses of the FR dolls. I had previously kept these earrings, bracelets and necklaces in the bedroom of the dollhouse, but they were all over the place. So I decided to take some blue satin and line the glass shelves and do purse, shoe and jewelry and accessory displays. Here are some photos of the finished display.

Here Joan is shopping, probably hoping Roger will buy her something special and shiny.  I did a quick placement of the dress form to make the scene look complete. Hopefully will have more photos as I make very slow progress on setting the town street up.

Very nice jewellery display cabinet. Looks like it could be in Cartier Paris. I would love to see some of my jewellery in a cabinet like that.
