Hi there to bloggers one and all. Today I thought I would stray off the path of papercraft and go to one of my other hobbies. Hope you don't mind.
When I was a little girl I had a small dolls 'bungalow'. My Nan always came with me to buy mini bits and pieces, she was as fascinated as I was and was always a source of information. Anyway when we moved house, my lovely bungalow was left behind in the attic - I was 9 at the time but there are somethings you remember when you are young and this is one of those memories. I bet you are all going 'ahhhhh' - but I can say that I did get over it - sort of.
Many, many, many years later I saw a programme about dolls houses and it set me off again. My hubby wanted to know what I would like for my 50th birthday and I said ..... 'a dolls' house please'. He did look at me rather oddly, but by then he was used to my, shall we say, foibles. The house he bought came in pieces so he built it for me and I chose paper and paint and we decorated it together in the Victorian style. He put all the electric lights, lamps and fires in for me, each one lights up separately and the lamps and fires flicker.
I still don't have it all finished but it is coming along nicely, I thought I would share a pic or two of the kitchen with you on this occasion - it is my favourite room so far. Apologies for the pics I need a few lessons from hubby!!!! I bought the dresser and table ready made but I try to buy most of the furniture in kit form and then I sand the pieces, glue them together and stain/varnish them. This is also a very therapeutic hobby.
Mrs Broom (the cook) has been dressed by me from her cap down to her bloomers.
I hope you like it, I will be back to my cards next time.
Hugs to you all and thanks for stopping by, I do appreciate your lovely comments.
