Doll Trunk Purchase and WIP!

I finally found a doll trunk that is sturdy, a good size and has good bones.  It was a bargain price too which makes it even sweeter.  It doesn't need much but I will do a little modifying to it such as adding some wood slats and hardware on the outside and a trunk tray for inside.  Proportionately I suppose it is a bit large for the doll I have but felt it was more important it hold all the goodies.

I still need to make a Victorian wardrobe for the doll, but first on my list (after I catch up on UFOs) is to make a stereoscope and family album.  So much to do, so little time.  Well it feels that way anyway.  I will share some of the goodies I already have collected later.

Here is a peek at the outside.  I'm not sure yet, but the wood 'feet' may have to go and be replaced with corner protectors and/or wheels.  Not too worried about that yet.  

Here is a sneak look at a CQ project I am currently working on.  Hopefully it will become a pillow soon.

Off to celebrate December birthdays with some friends soon, including my own.  It is tough to get together during that busy month.  Three out of five of us have December birthdays so we can't pass that unnoticed!
