1:6 Scale Lighting is LIT!

Today I added some brilliant 1:6 scale light fixtures to my Etsy shop.

These light fixtures are Lithium battery operated LED lights … no wiring, just flip a switch. They are **stunning**. Perfect for the 1:6 scale fashion doll collector to use in room boxes, diorama or even just on display shelving atop furniture/props. These are going to be placed throughout my doll room displays. I just adore them.

The candlesticks are perfect on top of the fireplace panels.

These are also available in silver tone (p.s. I do have a pink/silver panel available in the shop right now).

You can find the light fixtures and panels here: https://divinitydolldecor.etsy.com/

Candlesticks: $20.95 / ea Sconces: $17.95 / ea

1:6 Scale French Dressing Table W/ Vanity Chair Available at Etsy

Today I added a new gorgeous French dressing table set to my Etsy shop. I had these specifically manufactured for me and I personally chose the French Blue and Vintage Pink velvet fabrics as a tribute to my obsession with the color combos of the two. (I may be overdoing this combo a bit as of late – I will eventually snap out of it, but not any time soon). The drawers open and close. Made of wood.

The kidney shaped table is sold with the beautiful vanity stool.

Those who know me well, know that I love 1:6 scale furniture almost as much as I love dolls. These dressing tables are a new treasure in my collection. They pair really well with the wall panels as well:

The two piece sets are listed in my Etsy shop for $155/set. You can find them here: https://divinitydolldecor.etsy.com/ VERY limited quantities available. They will also be available in my shop here at the blog, once I get the shop up and running!

1:6 Scale Wall Panels Back In Stock at Etsy PLUS a New Panel Debuts today

I’ve been slow to get the shop page up and running here at the blog. In the meanwhile I’m preparing to add more of the 1:6 panels to my Etsy shop, https://divinitydolldecor.etsy.com/. Additionally, I will be featuring a new coordinating panel that is so GORGEOUS …it is tears worthy.

This new panel features an attached fireplace, along with a “faux” mirror (don’t let that word fool you – the “faux” mirror is simply exquisite!). This Fireplace panel is 2″ wider than the original panel. Both styles will be available for sale at the shop. Also new: two coordinating trim pieces. A connector trim piece will be offered for those interested in connecting panels together for a seamless appearance (or for adding an attractive finishing to edges of the panels). The corner connector trim, for those interested in setting up room boxes or L shaped walls, adds a really lovely decorative touch to the corners. I have very limited quantities of the trim pieces at this time.

New Fireplace Panel with “Faux” Mirror – Available in three colors & OH SO Beautiful!!!!
Note how the connector trim piece connects the two panels for a seamless, attractive appearance. I also added a connector trim to the edge of the fireplace panel to demonstrate another use for the connector.

Model: Fashion Royalty 2018 “Inspired Grandeur” Elyse Jolie

Measurements and pricing for the panels are as follows:

All panels and trim are available in White/Gold, Pink/Gold, Blue/Gold

Panel: 15"L x 18"H appx 1/2"  inch wood panel - $185/each
Panel W/Fireplace: 17"L x 18"H appx 1/2" inch wood panel - $265/each (introductory)
Connector trim: $20/each 1/4" added connection to back, 1 1/2" at front
Corner trim: $22/each

You may notice that the gold filigree/accent on the new product has been applied in a more delicate manner. This is in fact more the look I had in mind when I began to offer these panels for sale.

Below is a photo of the two panel styles that have been connected with a connector trim piece. The second photo demonstrates how the corner connector attaches two panels.

My next post will feature photos of yet another item I will be adding to the shop, but for now I will leave you with a sneak peek:

Merry Christmas 2018

 I have switched things up a bit this year … first ever post here that isn’t Barbie.

This year my Seasons Greetings virtual Christmas card is featuring a new and favorite Fashion Royalty face: Eugenina.  She is wearing a classic dress from Dressmaker Details.

I never tire of the Tiffany’s Christmas theme … I LOVE LOVE LOVE these bags and boxes made by Rebecca https://insidethefashiondollstudio.com/ . These bags & boxes complete my holiday decor vignette here!





Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Does this Construction Hat Make my Bum Look Big?

I want to clarify the new “Store” tab I’ve added in the menu here on my blog.  I have a test “store” under construction for selling 1:6 scale goodies. Yes, that includes the 1:6 scale panels, and No, that doesn’t mean they’re back in stock … Yet. However, there are panels currently in production.

Due to the exorbitant fees Etsy charges, I’m working towards shifting my Divinity Doll Decor shop here, to the blog. I do believe this will prove to be a simpler process for those interested in purchasing the panels, along with other product that I plan to add eventually.  For now, if you see pictures of the panels in the store with “zero” quantities available, note that the page is and has been in TEST STAGE.  Once product becomes available, I will post it here to announce it and quantities will be updated then.  My goal is for collectors to be able stay on the site and easily  jump over to the STORE tab without having to leave to head over to an Etsy store. Either way, all communication will be posted here first.

Now I’m headed back to work at the construction site … my 15 minute coffee break is over :)!

Blush and Gold Cocktail Dress Barbie Leads me to a cheap 1:6 Scale Chandelier

Super quick post to share.  I stopped into Tuesday Morning a couple of days ago in search of this Silkstone gal:

Blush and Gold Cocktail Silkstone Barbie

 

Found her – for $49.99.  As I took a browse around the store, I stopped by the newly displayed Christmas ornaments.  I found this super cheap chandelier – perfect for 1:6 scale.  With a flip of the switch it lights up with a color changing LED light.

Its going to be perfect on display in my doll room.  Best part? The price:

I Love the different color changes.

 

There was another chandelier with a rectangular shape available as well. Now, I’m off to debox Blush & Gold.

Wall Panel Update

Hey everyone – First, I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming positive feedback, interest and comments regarding the wall panels I shared yesterday both here and on Flickr.

I have sent in a message to Etsy advising that my shop name, Divinity Doll Decor, has not been accessible in searches at their site.  As well, the link they provide, does not seem to be working.  Here is the link: Divinity Doll Decor

Second, I apologize for any frustration and/or confusion for trying to order product.  As I mentioned, my inventory is very limited at this time. I have more panels in production mode. I cannot accept orders until completion. I will however ensure that I keep track of the inquiries and will post updates to product availability here on my blog, as well as at the Etsy shop.

I knew when I took on this project that collectors were going to be excited. As I mentioned in my last post – there has been such a void in this area for 1:6 scale enthusiasts. These panels are beautiful and they’re great quality…it takes time to create.

So hold tight – I will keep everyone posted! If you’re not subscribed to my blog, please take a moment and subscribe in the upper right hand corner.

Also, I will be attending the Integrity Toys convention (my first!) in Portland in October.  I will have samples available there for viewing – more details to follow.

I really appreciate the support and patience fellow collectors! There is more to come. I’m working on a few other productions that I know collectors will love. Stay tuned.

1:6 Scale Wall Panels Have Arrived

In my last post, I shared info about a new project that I was undertaking. 1:6 scale wall panels for doll photography. I believe that there has been a major void in the fashion doll collecting community for this type of product. I’m beyond ecstatic that I have found a quality supplier to produce them for me. I have finally made progress with getting these panels ready for sharing and selling.

First, photos. And second, details.  At this time, I’m focusing on 4 color schemes for these panels: White/Gold, French Blue/Gold, Chalk White and Pink/Gold.

These will be sold in a shop I created at Etsy : Divinity Doll Decor. This opens the door for me to consider what I’ve wanted to do for a very long time – offer props and decor for the fashion doll vignette enthusiasts. This will be a work in progress as time goes on.

Below are the first photos featuring my panels.

 

Gold/White panel

 

 

This blue/gold combo is called “French Queen”

 

This color combination is THE most perfect color combo!

 

Chalky White – Very flat & smooth

 

Pink/Gold – VERY flat & chalky. Those sconces are NOT included, but read on for details where you can purchase them.

 

The details about the panels:

They are made of wood. Wood as we all know has rustic characteristics, keep this in mind when purchasing. They are hand painted.  Each panel is unique and one of a kind.  The measurements are:  18″ High, 15″ Wide & appx 1/2″ thick. At this time, I have VERY limited quantities.  Please be patient as I have more in production. I cannot accept custom orders or pre-orders during this introductory period. But I welcome feedback as to which color combos above are the favorites.

A few more details about the photos above: The Laduree 1:6 scale miniatures. Do you love them? So do I! They are beyond exquisite.  And the icing on the French Macaron is that they are created by a very dear and talented friend – these are available to order from Rebecca’s incredible blog/website: Inside the Fashion Doll Studio. The quality of these bags/boxes is remarkable. Note that the gold foil on this packing is a true shiny, gold foil quality. No detail has been spared in the creation of these magnificent treasures.  Spoil your dolls and add them to your collection!

And then there are the sconces in the photos with the pink panel.

Do you love them? So do I! They are brilliant. These LED sconces light up … for real … they are battery operated! They adhere via a magnet.  No electric wiring! All you do is slide a switch at the bottom of the sconce.  Where have these been my whole collecting life?! The seller notes that they are 1:12 scale, but I truly believe they work in a 1:6 scale setting with perfection.  OMG they are an absolute perfect must have for the vignette enthusiast.

They also have an incredible 1:6 scale chandelier available to order. I’m going to share where you can order these from as well: MiniLand.Canada.

They retail for around $50 each (they go on sale regularly).  The quality is well worth it.  They are beautiful. And, MiniLand is a really lovely company to order from.  Well packed and quick shipping.  I highly recommend them.

I should be going live with the panels within the next day or two.  Keep an eye out at the shop for new additions. Gold/White will be going live today. Once I can figure out how to link the Etsy Shop here, I will come back and edit with info.
