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.

I'll Be Back Soon!

I am so sorry that I haven't blogged for over a month.  I have had a lot going on at home and I've been waiting for some miniature items which took the post office almost two weeks to deliver an item after they were already delayed due to holidays.  Poor Jacqui at almost started to make a second fireplace for me as we thought it was completely lost in the post.

My creative mind has not rested, however, oh no! I purchased a life sized Lloyd Loom chair from Ebay, which at some point in the past had been re-sprayed from the original mustard colour to a dark purple/burgundy.  I have almost finished re-spraying it in white and am going to make a cushion to fit it (although I'm no seamstress so goodness only knows what the cushion will turn out like!)

The chair after it's first coat of paint...
Finished chair photo to follow.

I have also been mentally planning the imminent redecoration of my life-sized bedroom to a shabby chic style room to relax in.  Seeing everyone's miniature shabby chic cottages and rooms inspired me to make my real bedroom a little more girly!
Before and after photos of the bedroom also to follow.

So, apologies again for the lack of mini-ing, but Mini Jo Jo will be mini-ing again very shortly, as soon as my life-sized world is sorted.
Please don't go away!
