Dolly gets the blues.......


OK so I told myself I wouldn't get much chance for blogging in the school holidays....but when theres not much chance of getting anything done and you end up making jelly baby heads for Lego figures and over explaining what the words 'personal space' mean (sound familiar?) then I guess no-ones going to mind if I sneak off and indulge for a while :)

So off I go to take pics of my pride and joy Dolly #2
this time in blue (at the boys request.....quote "Mum why do you always paint everything white??) 
 the trays are covered in the beloved vintage wallpapers and then varnished :)


I could happily fill the house with these trolleys and I'm thinking... quit selling fabrics as I get so stressed hunting for them and turn littleteawgon into a ..........well an up cycled teatrolly shop...


Dolly #2 will be moving into her new home soon, along with me and my fabric pile......it's not looking too pretty at the moment but I'm thinking a cross between Calamity Janes cabin and a Cuckoo clock and you get an idea...Yay.... I can't wait, I've always wanted my own shed....

Have a lovely weekend :)

  4. Personal space? What is that?
    Am finding that the Smalls are near me/askingaskingasking/getting under my feet until I actually want them- ie now, tea is ready, when they are playing happily and quietly in their own rooms. Forget the wanties, I have shed needies. Ax
    PS Troll #2 looking particularly chic.

  6. I wonder if that ' personal space' explanation would work on my cats and then even if my boys are not around , I would be allowed to close a toilet door!
    Imagine that......


    Am picturing you in a glamourous 'Margot' ensemble delicately guiding your trolley over the shag carpet. Xx

  7. Definately think you should bring the pimped up wonders of the tea trolley to the world Jane. Hate to think you'd stop going through the perils of finding such lovely fabrics though as I'm having a selfish moment.

    Have a lovely weekend won't you getting into the swing of this holidays lark. We're less than one week in and it's getting a bit manic here with high energy, late nights and then tears. I really must learn to behave myself better.

  9. Fab Dolly, what a wonderful idea! Also have shed envy even though I've got a workroom. I want something to paint in a nice faded shabby colour and hang bunting on. Might have to be Mr C in the end if he stays still long enough! xxx

  11. Oooh, loving the trolley!! I saw one in the charity shop the other day but didn't get it as I don't really have a place for it - but I'm now thinking next time I see one I'll just get it and worry about where it will live later!!

  15. I never really thought about the beauty a dolly trolly could have ..until I met you :) but now I see why you are head over heals for them. Can I just ask where you get your vintage wall papers from please? I am finding it tricky to get hold of some. Love you styling as always- so classy xxx

  16. I have a large shed that my other half tailor mad for me in our garden after I had to move out of my studio. Your trolly would look great in it too!
