I like the neat confines of the IKEA room box -- it inspired a quickly arranged scene (the accessories on the shelf and sink took the most time) that is long on satisfaction! Also, every time I use it or look at it, it evokes sun. Perhaps it is the lacy backdrop, or the handy fluorescents in our basement, or my own wishes for summer amidst the gray March days.

On a sunny note: a big "Hello!" to my new followers, and to the ones who have followed from the beginning. I really appreciate your interest, comments, and support - THANKS! :)

Re-ment: I have written about the Re-ment in this scene with some exceptions. The hot sauce on the top shelf is from Black Cat Italian Restaurant #3, and is good for 1:12. The pizza cheese and pepper shakers and green pepper on the sink are from Puchi Fun Meals #1, "Pizza Night," and are good for 1:12. The Palmolive-looking dish soap and paper towels on floor are from Disney Go! Go! Grocery #4, and are large for 1:12. The tomato can on the sink is from Black Cat Italian Restaurant #7, and is good for 1:12. The blue flowered bowl on the second shelf and the cooking pot on the bottom shelf are from I Love Kyoto #1, and are good for 1:12.
