Marie Terese' New Toy for Easter

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I am entranced with the new Easter bunny rocking horse I purchased a few months ago at AC Moore and it is perfect for Marie Terese. I wish it would fit into the dollhouse for her and Annabelle into her room, but it may be cramped with a bed and the rocking horse, unless I use one of the attic rooms as her playroom. 

Here is an 'imaginary' playroom for Marie Terese, where she is being served delicious cakes and pastries and playing with her new pet bunnies and PugDog and Mops and poodle after receiving this magnificent toy for Easter. I put some stockings on her with her new shoes to simulate how a child's stockings would sag and get wrinkled a bit back then at play. I like imperfections in my dioramas. 

As you can see, Marie Terese is one spoiled little girl. The only thing I left out was a dollhouse and dolls out of the picture, which I may add later on.

Big Bang Theory Diorama

A long time ago, actually a couple of years ago, I started work  on a store diorama. It has yet to have the front door and windows finished. 

It originally was supposed to be a Harry Potter candy store. That soon changed with my Big Bang Theory characters. I thought, how neat would it be to create Stuart's comic book /action figure store. 

I had spray painted the interior this beautiful bright blue to acentuate the candies and cakes I planned to make for the previous store's theme, but I found it worked for all the miniatures I had collected for this genre. 

The tiny figures Sheldon and Amy are holding are the ones that come in those four or 8 packs in the toy sections at Walmart, and Target for $4-5 and are perfect for this. I have other items I am going to alter such as video games that need to have added height for this store. 

Here is the front of the store , still unfinished. It is made of foamboard 1/2 inch thick and 3/16inch thick 

The sides were a mess to do- I used brick tape and had to re-do it a few times and spray paint it over. I plan to do some touch ups to the sides of it, as well as a sidewalk and some other touches . 

Hope you enjoy this, I am hoping to get back on this sometime soon.

Easter is coming....

It has been a long time since my last post but I've been extremely busy, sadly too busy to enjoy taking pics of my dolls. Easter is coming soon and I have always wanted to do a cute photo of Sophisticate Poppy Parker as a child . I long ago sewed this dress as I thought she made a great Arietty Clock character from the book The Borrowers by Mary Norton . 

I recently found this Easter Hare/Bunny rocking horse and added the bunnies, and Pugdog and Mops, and the poodle and her teddy bear for a nursery playroom feel. This photo was done for a Flicker Tag game challenge 'Pets' and I love doing period photos with my dolls. Arietty Poppy looks quite adorable with her bunnies and pugdogs and teddy bear. 

Hope to post more later...Lisa
