  1. I loved this!
    the diorama is perfect, with all the details (that is the smallest cloissonet box I've ever seen!). I can see Harper has no use for a conscience....ha ha ha

    1. She has absolutely no conscience! But I’m plotting my revenge. I’m lining up 50 chairs and telling her she can only pick one. (>‿◠)✌

      Thanks for noticing the cloisonné box.

  2. Hello from Belgium! The room is very pretty, and hilarious how the terracotta warrior laughs:-D. The info on the chair was very interesting. Very funny text too. Nymphaea

    1. Harper sends you a happy thank you. The annoying little creature rushed me on my chapter, but I suppose I should (reluctantly) thank her for forcing me to get it done.

  4. LOL. Yay and applause for Harper.

    Ro, she's so good at the demoing. Both the chair and the room are gorgeous - of course! - but I love how Harper dressed for the part and introduced herself (wiping eyes) and the chair so elegantly. That's a lovely dress, too. Gown? Don't want to think what it might have cost you ;-P but it looks great on her and fit the room perfectly.

    Glad to see you both back! Happy 2014!

    1. Awww… thanks so much D. You are the best! I've had that dress for years and glad I hung onto it, it was made by SLDolls and so pretty. Harper sends her best to you and the Joes.

  6. Harper is too much! But I can understand why she couldn't help herself. The chair is marvelous! I love the doors and her outfit as well!
    I have an couple of Asian men like that for my Asian scene one day...only mine don't talk. LOL

    1. I would love to see your Asian scene. The wonder of Asian décor is how good it looks in a traditional setting as well as a contemporary one. I am now wondering what way you will go with yours. (p.s. It would be nice to have a doll that doesn't talk. Ha-ha!)

    1. Harper thanks you so very much. I've had the chair packed away for years, and I think its appearance surprised Harper, which makes me wonder if I shouldn't thwart her by packing away all the chairs. (p.s. Harper glared at me and said I am not funny.)

  9. Ahh, the return of Harper! I'm jolly to see a post, and Harper at the same time. I love her cheongsam, the color, the pattern. It's a nice departure from the typical red ones.

    1. Harper is just beaming and sends thanks for your very kind post. I thank you you for naming the dress style. I just learned there is a second name for Qipao.

  10. I love Harper's personality -- so full of mischief! And your Asian décor is amazing -- where did you get it? I have 1:1 scale pieces that I have purchased over time -- some artwork from my trips to China too. I will have to see if I go again if I can find some 1:6 scale pieces. Your dios are amazing as always! I always look forward to your posts.

    1. I envy your travel experiences - bet your artwork is fab. Asian décor is brilliant, really, because it is so easily incorporated in a traditional or contemporary setting. My dream is to get serious and design a 1:6 modern semi-minimalist showstopper with a punchy palette. I’m uncrafty so my chin may rest on my hands while I dream for a long while… sigh… Anyway, to answer your question, I picked up the pieces for the Fukushima scene from auction sites and thrift stores. And thanks for your kind comments, you made my day. ヅ
