Suzannah, a 20in Roche doll, received a new outfit today, so I was able to put her into this nice warm pinafore and blouse.

I think she looks much more approachable in her new clothes.

I’m loving her more now I’m spending time with her and finding her style.


Today I finally got round to tidying the dolls kitchen. It had been used for storing other items while I tidied elsewhere so the floor was covered along with other places.

Once I’d cleared the floor of items , I also had a small change about and put some things away in the cupboards etc.

I had bought this little kitchen shelf along with the hanging utensils from the US a few years back and a few months ago I finally decided where it could go and had Paul put it up. The rolling pin I already had and it fits perfectly in the holder.

The old Iron I bought at the Chat n Snap looks good on the ironing board, although I may get Paul to make me a bigger one, as it’s not very high of a doll was to stand at it.

I bought a lovely little cheese dish after seeing one on a friends dolls dresser. I also found six butterfly printed mugs, when I was looking for a tin to take to the Chat n Snap , so they are now hanging on the dresser cup hooks.

I also tried the room setting out with two of my Roche dolls, Hannah sitting and Mary standing and they work well in the room.

Small Hannah fits well in the room.

Now Suzannah at 20 inches looks a little big depending on where she’s standing unlike Mary , who at 18 inches looks fine.

She doesn’t look to bad doing the washing up !

Or over at the dresser while talking to Mary.

The kitchen table looks a bit little for these girls, especially Suzannah , but I have a taller table I could swap when needed, although I just love this table in the kitchen. I wish I could remember who I bought it from , I’d ask them to make me a taller longer one. I may try and find who did make it !

Well I hope you have enjoyed this look round the doll kitchen, as you can see it’s an eclectic mix of pieces that you would have found in houses of old. No fitted kitchens in this dolls world.
