My hiatus is "almost" over!

Hello blogger friends!!! I have been following you all, but took a little time away from my blog to work on a long overdue project. I have been busy organizing my doll room (Obsession), deboxed some dolls that I have had for a long while (still have a long way to go) and unpackaged some furniture created by FDQ published artist Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures. : ) ...still so proud of you Vanessa! I was determined not to keep the new furniture packaged up for a long time like I did with the white sectional. However, working on Obsession has been an on-going project that has been in the making for a few years now (lol!). I have set a few target dates to have it finished and I am probably only about 50% done. Okay, first, let me tell you that my inspiration room no longer exist....sniffles. It really hurt me to take it down, but it was huge and I really do need the space for something else. In case you have forgotten what it looked like.

My Jonathan Adler inspiration room

This is what it looks like now.  I still have to remove these items.

This is how it is for right now....cramped on a small shelf  : (. 
It probably won't look so cramped once the girls leave.  It will then be the
 home for Juliana and her cousin Dallas.
I deboxed some dolls to create space in my doll room. They are all BB dolls. I decided to start with these dolls because they will not be placed on a shelf or cabinet just yet. They will be temporary housed in a container with the rest of the BB divas and divos.

BB from pink and black trio, three BB swimwear dolls that I received for some
commissioned work, and the three BB metallic dolls.  I really like the BB metallic dolls.
They are all very pretty! 

Some of the BB's waiting on the above crew.

I have a few more that are hiding somewhere in this room...

One view of what I have done thus far.  I removed them from storage containers and placed on bookcases basically to clear some floor space.  I still have a ways to go (sigh).

Most of these dolls will be deboxed and placed in
cabinets that I purchased from Ikea.  They are temporarily on these bookcases.

And finally, I have unpackaged the lastest furniture that I purchased from Vanessa. All of the following pics are still in the decorating stage. I have not decided who will get this apartment. Hmmm......

I plan to paint the lampshades black. and place table top mirrors on the two side tables.
(note:  the lamps are Christmas ornaments from Hobby Lobby)

more decor to come.....

Next up is a space that has been created for my guys. This apartment will be shared by the Remi brothers. Jabari (below) and Jamal Remi. Jamal should be arriving sometimes this month.

Still a work in progress...I need to get a table top and make a lamp
And finally one of the boutiques that I have temporary named "Pinky's" because I can't find my project tablet that has the original name (lol).  My plans are to have it simlar to the Black and White store.

I have a loonng way to go with this one.  It will be moved to the
space where my inspiration room was

Thanks for stopping by!
