Dressed Beds by Kelly Curtis

When I was a child, my mother used to tell me the story of an Indian Princess. She was taken from the palace by demons and was kept imprisoned in the enchanted City of Demons. Before the demons left their fort for the night, they would cast a spell on the Princess and put her to sleep.

When I see these luxurious beds by Kelly Curtis, in my mind I see the beautiful princess sleeping ~ her long raven hair strewn about the pillows, her lithe ivory body resting like a pearl on the exotic bed!

I sigh and admire the creations ... and hope to get one of these beds for my dollhouse one day!
Meanwhile, here is the link to Kelly Curtis's website for you to enjoy:

The Dream Home of aminilover

Come inside ~ have a seat! I have been meaning to show you around this house by aminilover. The black leather couch, the leopard print window treatment, the elephant table base ~ each item is hand-picked for this Safari themed Living room.

This room done in light sage is my favorite ~ and not just because it is my favorite color! I love the bed spread and how the entire room is unified by the sage and cream theme.

The lady of the house has exquisite taste in decorating her house. If you click on these photos, you can see more detailed versions of them. I died of envy when I saw her table setting! The green glassware seems to be from Chrysnbon, and the china! Don't get me started about the china! The cups are of the palest sage green with gold inside.

Dad is in his office, and baby in her room. The lighting in each room is unique; I love the lamp shades that vary in style to fit the decor of each individual room.

Dolls by Kellie Wachter

These are dolls by my friend Kellie Wachter. For those of you who know Kellie as a dollhouse miniaturist, these dolls are bigger than the dollhouse scale. Kellie sent me these photos for feedback, and since I adore anything she makes, I thought I'd ask your thoughts on her latest creations!

I love these dolls! ~ there, I said it! But you knew that already! The reason I love them even more is that they bring back wonderful memories from my childhood. My aunt made cloth dolls, and although they looked very different, Kellie's dolls, in my opinion, have an "old world" charm ~ a simplicity, innocence and soft warmth that modern dolls don't have. I think Kellie's choice of colors and fabrics for the dolls' dresses contributes to the vintage quality. That's all I can say from my novice point of view. So, I invite the connoisseurs of dolls to comment on Kellie's dolls!

The Brownstone by Lenor Johnson

A sweet little note from my favorite artist Lenor Johnson:

"Good morning Smehreen. Your newest doll is wonderful! I would hardly call you a beginner anymore! I'm going to send you some photos of the brownstone that I have just completed. As I mentioned in SmallStuff, it was designed by Bluette Meloney and constructed by me. It was a fun project! Enjoy, Lenor"

My Egyptian Princess

This is my third baby ~ my Egyptian princess, Zeba.

My little Princess has dull golden curls and kissably pouting lips. Her soft gray eyes are filled with longing for the Prince of her dreams.

I had tremendous fun, working on my Egyptian Princess. She is my golden girl ~ her skin is dusted with golden glitters ~ her eyes are lined with Kohl and shimmery bronze shadow.

Her dress is made of the most gorgeous golden-bronze tissue fabric and beaded Indian lace. The front of her skirt is delicately folded and fans out like a sari.

The front of her blouse is adorned in faux gold and gems. Her matching armbands are reminiscent of traditional henna, which is such a favorite of mine! She also wears golden bangles, faux diamond earrings, and a beaded sash around her waist.

Dressing her hair was the most daunting and the most fun part of the entire ordeal! Where would I begin! My hubby, Shah, was teasing me the entire time because I couldn't stop braiding her long golden-bronze hair! She has a chignon atop her head, circled by a braid. The rest of her hair snakes down her back in a single long bejeweled braid.

She wears jewels in her hair. Her hair ornament is composed of three faux diamonds, and lined with clusters of golden beads. Strands of loose hair fall over her shoulder, and her matching earrings peek through. Along her braids are tiny bronze dots, and her braid is tied back with threads of gold.

How do you like my Princess? Let me know by leaving a comment!
