Cottage Closet and Rocker

for Riley Kish





When Riley visits Grandma’s cottage, her days are filled with outdoor activities - wading at the edge of the lake, picking roses for bouquets, and, of course, picnics. At night, she is always worn out and ready for an early bedtime. Riley gets to sleep in a very special bedroom. The furniture in there belonged to Riley’s mom when she was a little girl. That makes for even sweeter dreams!

Rileys Rocking Chair

Riley’s Rocker is white with clusters of cottage flowers painted on the sides.  Baby blue and white stripes are painted on the underside of the rocker. The edges are distressed to give a well-loved aged appearance. The seat is upholstered with pink rosebud chenille, and is edged with light pink chenille cording.

Riley’s Closet

Riley’s little closet is the perfect size to hold a weekend’s worth of clothes and toys. The body of the piece is painted with baby blue and white stripes. The top is faux-finished in a swirly sweet pink. The door is hand painted with a big, beautiful bouquet of roses, forget-me-nots, and yellow tulips. The drawer is covered in little rosebuds. There is a small mirror on the inside of the door. The edges of the closet are distressed.

s Outfit

Riley has brought along a sweet little outfit to wear into town. The sleeveless dress is made from tiny rosebud print. The full skirt is fashioned with the reverse side of the fabric on the outside, with the contrasting "right" side of the fabric turned up a the hem. The hem and waistline are accented with cluny lace. The outfit is completed with a matching poofy hat and white shoes. Her sage Teddy bear wears a smart white bow tie and a tiny heart charm.
