The West Enders Sneak Preview: A new pizzeria opens in the village

I haven’t posted any episodes recently but I have been working behind the scenes to create new dioramas for the village, make final decisions on the characters, and try to make my doll room a bit more user friendly. Many of you probably aren’t aware that I have a rare lung disease called chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis. It is progressive and incurable. I use oxygen when I’m up and active and over the last year, it’s become clear that putting up and taking down dioramas is just too much for me so I’ve been trying to create some permanent fixtures for the West Enders and plan future stories around them. Next month I hope to post a wrap up of events after the arrest of Bigly. In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of one of the new permanent fixtures, a pizzeria, opened by Lexi Lombardi!

As you can see, some of the secondary school students have gathered to celebrate Ginny’s birthday with her. Teddy has quit his job at the café and is the new cook/chef at the pizzeria. Trichelle is working as a waitress. There are a few more things coming to add some finishing touches, but I’m pleased with the result so far. Next up, a grocery store!

  1. I’m sorry to hear of your illness, Wendy. But your pizzeria is wonderful. My favourite detail is the orange table at which Ginny sits; it looks exactly like the Formica-topped tables of my teenage years. Seeing Ginny in the scene also lifts my heart. I have a Ginny and her inclusion makes scene feel personal (to me).

    • I’m glad you like it! That formica topped is probably familiar to a lot of us! My dolls have kept me happy through illness and pandemic so I hope to keep going as long as possible!


  2. Hi Wendy

  3. What a great pizzeria! I love this diorama.
    Sorry to hear you have a chronic illness to deal with. I’m glad you can rearrange your doll room to better suit your energy level. It is a lot of work to set up and take down! I am always happy to see your posts no matter how long the wait. They always inspire me and brighten my day!
