Apartment #6 - Granny's Sewing Aptmt - Bathroom and Clothes Space

Hello everybody.
I hope you all have been well.
Thank you very much for your
lovely comments.
They are greatly appreciated.
I still cry a lot. I miss my daughter
very much.
I cannot believe how fast the days are
flying by. On Saturday she will passed
away for a month already.
Anyway, it is hard to move on.
But again I try.
This is the last segment to Granny's apartment.
It has been hard to figure out how to show
this last section of her apartment.
You will
see why and understand once you see the 
last photo's of how the apartment is laid out.
I have tried to put everything in order as usual,
however for this apartment I have decided to
start with the clothes first and take it from there.
This is the dress that hangs on the green bookcase,
otherwise known as her dresser. I had a hard time
photographing the dress - it is green.
This is the front.
No fancy hanger as Granny is just into
the basics.
I bought this dress from eBay for little money
from a Mrs.hughs.Mr.carson.
The dress
had the exact look that I was going for which
is something that looked old and still
had style.
So, this dress Granny cannot part
with, cause it is from her younger days.

Here is the back of the dress.
Cute - isn't it!

Here is Granny's robe and nite gown.
It is made from a stretchy knit fabric.
It is not
tattered, but old looking just the same.
Granny loves to wear white!

Here is the robe opened up.

Here is the plain night gown.

Just a little bit of fabric, lace and ribbon.

This cute little set came from ebay with a seller
named: my newt.
She has lovely lingerie!!!
I bought this about 4 or 5 years ago.
It did not age very well.
So much glue has turned 
yellow on the outside and the inside of each piece.
Granny's apartment was the perfect place to use 
these pieces!!
I wanted it all to look old, she never buys a lot
of clothes.
However, these pieces are stiff!!
I reckon because there is
so much glue to hold it all together.
Nothing in Granny's apartment is suppose to 
match and she likes it that way.
The bra, panties and the corset are in still working
I like how it looks dingy.

The backside does not look good either.
look a little worse for wear, but they are not
holy or tattered or torn.
There is a patch on
the inside of the bra - not done by me.
I never saw it when I bought it.
You can see everything when you take pics
of it.
Some things do not show up right away,
they show up later!
However it is still a lovely Blue set!!
Never been sorry that I bought it.

You can see the glue that has yellowed.
This is the bottom of the corset looking inside.
I was thinking about dirtying up this set.

This is the back looking to the inside of the

The pocketbook is really cute.
Love the laces
and the straps on here.

Much glue on the outside back piece.

More pieces that match the pocketbook, and all
of the underwear.
This is an adorable hat.
Does not look bad from the sides.

You can see some dingy parts - that is glue.
The hat
looks so good for it aging - at least Granny thinks
She loves her hat and will not be replacing it
any time soon!

The star is so cute on top of the hat.
The bow is a
little big and stiff but I just left it that way.
I might change the bow to one that is
more droopy.

There was also a hatbox - now what can I say about
The hatbox is so cute!!!
It still looks very nice!.
From the upcoming pics you will see that it has not 
yellowed from any glue.
Still looks brand new!
There is some blue tissue paper on the inside.
This is a lovely piece!

The hatbox has a cute emblem on the front!

Cute, cute hatbox!!
Sweet ribbon, bow and trims.
The box reads Paris.

Inside the hatbox and the hat.
 The hat does not fit in the box. 
It was made for display.
Lovely set!
I love all of the pieces.

This was a pocketbook that I made from a cute
tutorial that was floating around on the net.
So sorry that I cannot remember who made the
tutorial - but it is awesome.
I like mixing things up.
This pocketbook was
made from paper towel and strips of plastic.
I glued the strips to the paper towel for
some added strength.
And around the top I 
sewed some pink floss and then with a button!
It is different and unique and I like things
that are different.
And yes this pocketbook will open!!
It is great to hold extra soaps or 
whatever you want to put inside.
Easy to close up too.
Currently, there is nothing inside it.

Here is the bottom of the pocketbook.

This is a baby button.

A little close up but is a little blurry.
The pocketbook is shiny because
of the plastic!

These are some cute porcelain bunny slippers.
So little!
I do not know who made them or where
I got them from.
I have had them for a while.

These are a pretty blue!
This is the true color of the slippers.

Cute - so cute!

The apartment has a few quilts that I made a few
years ago.
I cannot remember the date.
I think 
they are placed under the heading of 
'Make do' quilts.
I am glad that I finally found a place for them.

Here is the back side of the quilts.

The pink little crochet doily has hearts
on it.
Given to me by my friend Lynda.
It folded up nicely.
The bottom quilt was easy enough
to make. The words:
'Home Sweet Home' came off of
something, that I do not remember
It was easy to strip the short
sides and the long sides to piece
it all together.

Back of quilt is just a piece of muslin.
Little quilt not even quilted.

All of these quilts and pink crochet doily set a top
of the shower.
Granny has to store them somewhere!

The toilet has an old rectangle plastic pink button.
At least that is what it looks like to me.
Glued to it is strips of toilet tissue.
So old - can you tell?
Also the sink has a cute pink bar of wrapped
The skirt around the sink is easy to make.
Do you need a tutorial on how to make that?
The toilet also has a skirt on it.
I will tell you how I did that too.

I found this sticker among my stuff and just
thought it would be funny to use here.
It has
a little piece of tacky wax to hold it up.
Yep, Granny is Queen of this apartment!

Here is the sink much better with the skirt.
little quilt rack holds Granny's 2 towels and the
Also her shower cap sits on top ready
to be used. 

Here is where Granny's underwear is at.
had to wash it so it hangs up in the shower
to dry!!

Her panties hangs from the shower head.
She uses Johnson's baby shampoo for
her hair and her skin.
She thinks that
it softens just fine!
Granny's always
trying to get double use out of something!

Another peek in!

Another peek from the other side.

Her bra hangs up with a little bit of tacky wax.

Her bra and her corset!

It is drying really well.

See the patch on the inside of the bra.
It is drying really well also.

Just a look from the outside of shower.

Another peek!

Love the flower on the corset!

 A better overall view!
If Granny needs more corsets, am sure that
I will buy again from this seller.

If I remember, I believe that I will dirty this
set up to make it look older.
Am sure Granny will love it!

Here is where the shower stall stands.
The robe and nite gown hang on the
The shower curtain and valance
look good here and gives added color.
I wanted to get a pic showing the bra
hanging on the inside.
The black and white bathroom mats
are made from ribbon as is the toilet
You can see the grandfather clock
from the shower stall.

This pic was before I put the grandfather clock

Granny has to store the quilts somewhere!

Stacked to the ceiling!

A cute area.

Here is the other side of the apartment.
The bathroom is over here.

Up close of the toilet cover and mat.
made from ribbon.

The shelves hold numerous things.
On the
bottom shelf is a bodice, a powder box and
her brush, comb and mirror set.
I made the bodice and the blouses.
Next shelf holds a few blouses, a pair of
old shoes and a necklace that she could
not part with when she moved in.
The shelf nearest the pocketbook holds a 
pink box with letters and other notes
given to her by her husband.
She had to
bring them with her to this apartment.
Also, the red glove box holds a pair of white gloves.
I bought this glove box from eBay.
It is a lovely piece.

The top shelf holds mainly empty boxes.

This is where the blue hatbox sits.
It just fits here!

The dress hangs neatly here where
Granny can see it everyday.
I am
sure she wishes that she could
still wear it again.
Even though the hat
does not match the dress, she still
loves to wear it out sometimes!

The pocket book hangs nicely here.

Just another view.

So far this was the best pic that I have of the robe
and nitegown hanging up.

Another look.

Peeking in!

A wide view!

You can see the apartment pretty good.

This is where the towel bar sets at. 
Granny's apartment is finished.
I hope you like Granny's Apartment.
Thank you for visiting me!
