Its been a million years since my last post. That is due to a million priorities since my last post. One of which is quite relative to our hobby.
I’m excited that this week I finally had a chance to debut my newest collection: Divinity Gold. It is available in my Etsy shop DivinityDollDecor.
This is a collection that is near and dear to my heart. I had it made to my specifications in 1:6 scale, in gold w/ a cream fabric. I posted this to my Flickr acct this eve, as this WAS the inspiration:
Lucky for me, the reality was that I had the option to also incorporate an INSANELY gorgeous Sofa, Dressing Screen and Side Table. The details are so incredibly precious.
I love that the chairs are unique – a left and right facing pair
I have wanted a unique 1:6 scale Dressing Screen for years. I’m so delighted to offer this one to collectors:
I do have EXTREMELY limited quantities available. Visit my ETSY store to order.
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.
These are also available in silver tone (p.s. I do have a pink/silver panel available in the shop right now).
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.
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:
A couple of days ago I stumbled across these acrylic doll display cases at Michaels Craft Store. They retail for $14.99 each. Michael’s “50% off one item” coupons are readily available – half price for one of these cases is an even better price.
The cases are excellent for protecting and/or highlighting those special individual dolls and/or outfits that are a concern for collecting dust.
They measure 5 x 5 x 13 inches. The front of the case is a completely removable lid for access to the interior. The acrylic is thinner than some of my other acrylic cases that I have in my collection, but I don’t mind, I like that they’re not as bulky.
They are not a great option for large ballgowns or dresses with long trains, however I still think they’re an item of good value to sprinkle throughout a doll room mixed with other display cases.
A gown much larger than one like this may get crowded in the 5″ square
Two dolls in slimmer outfits will fit in the case just fine:
I collect various cases for creating displays within my doll room. Obviously they help protect from dust but they also add an element of highlighting a doll or a theme (for example, my “Cruise Ship Passengers” theme featuring the BFMC Silkstone “Boater” doll, pictured below).
Another example of how I use acrylic cases:
There are some dolls that just look great featured alone and deserve their own individual case. These are perfect for that.
