Yesterday I posted this one on Snow Sparks, and had no visitors…at all!  So I’m trying it here, as I would love to see a comment or two.  LOL.


The hippie dolls on the top shelf (above) have been with me for many years.  In this photo, they were decorating a bedroom shelf in my previous residence.

When I moved into this studio apartment, I brought those dolls, as they were a part of my sentimental collection.  At first, they decorated the entry way table.  But then one day, someone bumped into the table and they fell!

After their fall, I moved them onto my dresser.

Sadly, they fell again when I had my phone on the dresser and grabbed it to turn off the alarm!  So today I moved them to a safer spot.  I hope.

On Sundays, the housekeeper comes to clean, and we enjoy chatting while she works.  She came up with the idea of where to place them.  I switched out the calculator that was on that filing cabinet, to open up space for the dolls.  See below.


I have one closet in this space.  When I first arrived, I created a little cubby with clothes and a cupboard.

Then I decided to move things around and turn the cubby into a proper closet.  I moved the little cupboard into my entry way.With these changes, I have more storage, all hidden behind the lovely curtain; and the Jelly Cupboard that once lived in the closet area is now in the entry way (see left).

The isolation of the lockdown has given me lots of time to play around with my interiors.  I enjoy it, and I’m glad for the opportunity to spend the time in a pleasant way.  I love to read, too, but sometimes I need action:  moving things around and changing things up.

I also enjoy fixing a tray of breakfast things, including the Cranberry Mimosa you see below:


How do you handle isolation?  What works for you?



      • A lot of my childhood was in the World War 2 and we had no toys. Earlier my younger boy and a friend put all our dolls in buggy and threw the dolls into the irrgation ditch. We both got a doll after the war was over. I keep mine in good condition, when I was an adult sold it to a friend who collect dolls.

  1. I love all your decorating efforts and how comforting the collectables are to you. Nice Job. I’ve been in a bit of a slump this last week and none of the books I started hooked me long term. I really think it’s me this week and not the books. Hopefully, this too shall pass.

    • Thanks, Diane, I know that I do tend to obsess about my collections and redecorating, but these activities do help with the anxieties of our lives these days!

      I am also finding it difficult to select my books. I am glad that I am forced to read my review books, and so far, they are turning out to be good ones.
