So here is the next lots of pics of my doll corner...still yet to be finished though. I would like to add a white wooden high chair and also the beautiful wooden stroller from the Nova website (Only problem is I'm in the UK so I don't think I will be able to get it!

So here are two pictures of my the cooker area. If you look closely you can see that inside the jars are different flowers and herbs (I went into UK shop called Neals Yard and asked for stuff that would be OK if it were ever eaten by mistake!!!!!!!!!)

Main picture of whole play area. The play area is our dining room which goes open plan onto the living area with comfy sofa etc.You can't see the cooker in this picture but it is actually in one of the alcoves.

mamaUK, I'd love to see the dollhouse when you're finished sanding it. And where is the play stove from? It's one I haven't seen before. We already have a play kitchen, but I love looking at all the others out there just for fun.

Currently I'm trying to simplify. I have a few pics up of the playroom but they are not accurate as to the state of things currently. Right now it looks like a hurricane blew through. I have some toys on my "Sh-t List" to get rid of before DD's birthday, when she will receive even more toys that I will want to toss, too!

Most of these pics are "in action," IE not really pics of the room itself...

Doll crib and dolls scattered around The crib is an antique and I'm wondering about the safety of the finish on it, but I hate to be wasteful and buy a new one...

Rhino sleeping, hehehe

Art clothesline- currently clipped with Valentine art

That's all for now. Once I clean it up and declutter some, I'll take some photos... it's a work in progress.

MamaUK- LOVE the space! It's so clean and uncluttered and I love the assortment of books and toys, so accessible and neat for your little one! The Bamboletta doll is gorgeous and I love what you did with the basket... did you make the quilt yourself?

Wonderful, fantastic job!

Nolimom- Your daughters room is adorable! Did you make that tree? I really like it! I love the find in your daughters crib

You guys are inspiring

Thanks so much! And, I do love your setup. I was naking when I responded and was wondering if they were etsy items. (Isn't etsy the best?) I've read through your blog before and think it's such a neat life you all must have. What a cool thing to tell your possible land lovin kids & grandkids when you get older!

This thread is giving me major play kitchen envy!

We had a small, sort of table top play kitchen when DS was a tike (age 1-3 I think) but we decided to pass it on to another family once he was big enough to play in the real kitchen. We have to make decisions like this when living in such a small space, and it started not to get used as much as other items who needed the space.

I don't have pics of his playroom, yet, but we just got in the Camden rose kitchen! DS loves it and plays with it constantly.

mamavegan- the kitchen is beautiful!!

Okay, I am going to be honest here and show you what our playroom really looks like. It's pretty messy for several reasons: I've been busy, we've gotten a lot of extra junk from Christmas and Noli's birthday, I'm rearranging things, and I'll admit it: I'm just lazy.

I am in the process of transforming the playroom once again. We just replaced Noli's toddler bed with a lovely loft bed. It is so practical for our space: there isn't enough room for both a bed and playstands, and this serves both functions.

Here are some pics of the room before:

Old arrangement with toddler bed. The blue stool next to it is where I sat and leaned over to nurse. So many nights of back pain!!

It was a WRECK.

EEEK! The Learning Tower in the corner was our only "open ended playhouse" kind of thing, but Noli could hardly fit inside! I'm so glad she has the bed to play under now.

Playsilk rack. I found this beautiful unfinished wooden quilt rack at the thrift store for $12!! It's perfect for silks, scarves, and hankies.

Puzzle table. I want to get a low bookshelf to replace this, because there is no room to actually play with the puzzles! The pieces just end up scattered on the floor.

Kitchen, just around the corner from Mommy's kitchen. I want to put shelves next to it so everything isn't just dumped in the basket.

Desk. Slowly collecting all the broken crayons and melting them into cupcake shapes so they are easier to color with wide strokes. Also getting rid of character-oriented paper and whatnot. It just keeps finding its way into our house somehow.. :

Closet library. So many wonderfully quiet moments when Noli has tucked herself away to pour over her books.

Dress-up suitcase I also added hooks to hang her hats, crowns, etc.

And here are pics of our new bed and the progress we've made:

Don't mind Mommy's snacks on the floor- yes, that is a latte AND a huge iced tea. I needed LOTS of caffeine to do this!!

Another view. The big pile of blankets on the left is actually a new papasan chair I scored at a yard sale for $10. We had to throw everything on top of it to make room for the new bed.

"Mommy stop taking pictures and play with me!!" She was rather irritated. You can see her sleeping nook underneath.

Crib mattress and blankets in sleeping nook underneath. She likes having the option of sleeping on top or bottom. I later put her dolls' crib, stroller, and basket of clothes under there too, so it's their little "house."

I would like to replace the bright red tent with a rainbow silk, but I have to find the time to dye one! I think that it will really calm down the room.

Also, I have taken the old bed apart and put the papasan in the corner so there is more room to play.

I will update with more pics as I progress. Assuming there is interest!

Omg Where did you get the tree puzzle, the large puzzle in front with the sun pattern and the doll stroller. Who makes them? Also I love the tent type thing on the loft bed.

I second the request for the maker of the stroller! It's one of the few wood ones without hearts I've seen!!

ps. Thanks for pics of reality. My whole house looks like that sadly (which is why I have a cleaner starting next week. I just can't keep up!!!). :

I LOVED your pics!!!! Ok, so you said it was messy but I think it looks so beautiful and cosy and such a good place to play, I loved it. Her bed looks amazing and I think the rainbow silk idea is so lovely! My favourite picture was the closet library one, my toddler would LOVE that, at present she doesn'y have a cosy corner and I would love for her to have one.

The stroller looks like the one from the guy who sells them on ebay

I need to get me one of these! I love the no hearts factor myself.

Yes, we got the stroller from someone like that- just an independent woodworker who sells them on the Internet. He offered heart/no heart and finished/unfinished and we opted for neither of those. I keep meaning to polish it with beeswax. I really love the thing (so does DD!) but it is very light and tips over easily. Definitely not to be used as a walker toy with a younger baby!

The puzzles are from the Austin Waldorf school store, I think they are all made by Grimm's Spiel und Holtz.

My dad made them. He also made the crib, dresser, coat hanger, and rocking horse. And a rocker that is not in the picture. DS is lucky to have such a crafty Grandpa.
