Little chest of draws....

This is the chest of draws on the right side of the attic bedroom, 'Anne' from 'Long Summer Days' asked why I hadn't shown this side of the room....a question I couldn't answer! So today I have taken some photos of the chest of draws with its removeable mirror. Once again this is a "Small Pleasures Kit".... I think it's a really lovely little piece of furniture and it was such a pleasure to make! Hanging on the draw knobs, is a pretty pink cardigan which is hand knitted by a lady here in Australia and a little summer dress that I made a few years ago.

On top we have some lolly pops, a couple of coloured pencils and a yo-yo. The lovely book was a surprise gift from Jean Day....a French story book ofcourse!....thank you again Jean x

....then lastly, but certainly not least is the basket that Mercedes made for me.....you have to admit it is adorable.....I wanted to use it in several rooms, but finally decided it look right a home here in the attic bedroom filled with books.

I love the dresser! And all the beautiful details....the book from Jean Day, the basket... and the carpet!!! And again the floor... how did you do that? I did a similar floor in the dining room of my house....but it was so hard to make them fit! Did you start in the middle? I figured out later that would have been easier!

I bought the tiny bunny from a miniature fair here in Tasmania years and years ago...which I am sorry to say is no help to you.

I'm pleased you enjoy my blog!

Linda, it's all just lovely! That little sweater is so precious . . . I can just imagine the little girl who wears it being all cozy in it. I love how you added lollipops and crayons and the books are wonderful.

All together a lovely, lovely room.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for showing that side of the room. I admit I am greedy to see every detail in every room ~ I don't want to miss anything because I know that each element will be so completely perfect. This vignette did not disappoint and I would not have wanted to miss it.

I'm feeling sad that this fabulous project is finished. I just had to go back through all of your beautiful blogs to see if I missed anything and I'm really sorry I missed this one. I'm so pleased you liked the little La Maison de Lilie book!!! Everything is so lovely. You have really inspired me to travel with your beautiful photos and wonderful interpretations of your visits to France in your creation!
