Lizzie Likes It

Polly calls her house a "house of props". She isn't wrong. One of her past jobs was as a magazine stylist for both Country Home and Coastal Living. She would work on photo shoots of people's homes and work with the photographer to stage lovely photos. A vase moved there, a chair moved here, and a few hours later you have a pretty picture. Her home was often the scene of these photo shoots and I got to tag along on a few of them. Our books were mostly photographed in her house. Those were a fascinating few days. I watched, took it all in, and made lunch for the crowd. Polly's unique eye and her talent means that her house has lots of picture worthy treasures. She mailed one to me recently. This adorable doll bed is going to help "style" our booth in Pittsburgh. I have worked on a little doll quilt for the last 2 days to adorn it. I am pretty happy with it. Lizzie the cat is charmed by the whole shebang. I believe Lizzie covets this bed. I can hardly blame her. Roscoe Agrees!

I have seen pictures of Polly's house in Country Home. Often wished she would adopt me.

Stinkin' adorable! Hey, any chance of providing the dimensions of that doll bed? It would be tremendously helpful so that when I plan my diversion over by your booth I'll have a bag big enough to...
oops, did I type that out loud?

I love the doll bed. I have one that my parents made for me when I was a little girl. My dad made the bed out of wooden spools and my mother created a pink sunbonnet sue mini quilt to go on it. I think I'm now inspired to get it out of storage and let my kitties get acquainted with it. Piwacket says hello to Lizzie and Roscoe.
