Doll collectors often struggle with the delima of finding ways to display there collection...Most of us start out with a simple curio cabinet or book shelf,if your lucky you may be blessed with a doll room at some point. One might think they will no longer have to worry about space at this point...but I can tell you from personal experience, my doll room is over flowing..So I would like to share some of my ideas for displaying dolls creativly. I found a broken shelf at a little antique shop for a dollar..after soaking it in bleach water for a day or two, I added bright colorful cardstock to the back walls..and bright color ribbon along the trim, added a hanging hook on back so that you can it hang on wall. Its that simple a cool way to display your Lalapaloosys...You can create mini dioramas and change the cardstock as you like.

I've had my eye on Lalapaloosys since they hit the store shelves,but I am learning patience and timing..This week, I went to one of my secret spots and found a bag of them plus accessories..After sanitizing them, I created a few cool vinettes...I went shopping today and found an awesome piece to display them...so look for a tutorial on it soon!
