Follow the building progress of my Mountfield dolls house from the Dolls House Emporium.

This is my second dolls house; the first one was built from a cheap kit bought from Ebay and completed about eight years ago. Although my friends enjoyed poking their noses in through the windows to see what was inside, I just had a feeling I could do an awful lot better.

This is house number two; my attempt at improving upon house number one. I hope you enjoy it.

Please feel free to leave a comment on my blog if you wish.

MJJM's kitchen is famous!

I am so excited!  The kitchen is famous!  Well, maybe not famous, but it's featured on Elizabeth LePla's Elf Miniatures website!  Click here to have a look.

Just to celebrate, I've taken another pictures of the kitchen and the utensil holder I bought from The Dolls House Mall; another fantastic website containing some more truly beautiful items.

And one of the gorgeous terracotta pot with a spiders web inside...
...which inspired me to get on with more of the exterior whilst I'm waiting for some bits for my living room...

I added pathway and grass in the front garden.  I went to Hobbycraft to get a sheet of self adhesive "grass" and they didn't have any, but I found this model railway turf.  Personally I think it looks better.

From matchsticks and other bits of wood I made a little picket fence.  The final touch is a "wrought iron" gate I made from wood and curtain rings.
THAT'S why I took a day off work!

Congratulations :D It looks great. Thank you also for mentioning the site you got the utensils - I had looked at them a while ago from a magazine ad, then promptly forgotten where it was! Google was no help.:)

Congratz Jo! :)

I think using curtain rings for the gate is ingenious!

It's all looking great Jo. I especially like the idea of using curtain hooks for the wrought iron gate. What a clever lady you are! Judith x
