She wears a hand-made apron and simple doll clothes that have been handmade. She holds a tiny 1:6 scale book that she appears to be reading. On the wall behind her are paintings representing the famous Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet. Beside her is a 1:6 scale tea set decorated with roses. The tea set rests atop a wicker side table. Next to that is a large cabinet filled with books of all kinds in 1:6 scale. One of the shelves also houses the bust of William Shakespeare, which measures about 2 cm tall (approximately half an inch). The doll appears to be engrossed in the book she's reading.
