Still getting over a dastardly cold. I am in hacking my lungs up competition with the man in the flat below. His comes from smoking or TB I think. Wow, I have never heard anything like it, but I am getting pretty good at it myself!
I got an idea late last night while in bed and trying to sleep. I remembered that I had kept some Styrofoam board from the Ikea furniture and I suddenly knew what to do with it!
First, I had to rearrange the bedroom in order to uncover the radiator behind the door. It’s the only one in the bedroom and the weird thing I have all my doll stuff in was blocking it by 1/3. So I moved the big wooden wardrobe over and the doll bookcase to replace it and suddenly it all looked much better and was warmer!
Anyways, while it is already up in this photo, so I cannot surprise you, I made a wall to further enclose Rosey’s room.
I had two pieces, which I cut and taped together and then I cut out a window. I had some contact paper and covered it all up with that. I wished I could have had something more wallpaper and child like, but right now, stuff on hand has to do.
I cut a handkerchief in two and made curtains.
I cut up an old ruined umbrella frame to get the curtain rod. I bent the ends to poke directly into the wall.
The wall is taped to the bookcase so that it doesn’t fall. So while the room has three different wall coverings, it will have to do for now. The more I looked at it, the more I thought that if I had more Styrofoam, I could build another room on top! Some day, I will have a whole wall made into one massive dollhouse.
Not much other news. I noticed that Rosey’s one eyelash was coming loose. I had not secured them with permanent glue as I was not sure if I was going to keep them. I wanted to eventually replace them with softer lashes, but I gently pulled them off and decided to wait a bit before deciding altogether. It does make her look less dramatic, and I am use to the more flirtatious look. I do like that now I can afford to take my time with making decisions. Still pleased to say that I have continued to look at dolls online and not one has intrigued me! I am still utterly smitten by Rosemarie.
