I haven't worked on my Dolls House for several years now - and I was thinking I should get back into doing bits and pieces - otherwise it will never get completed...
Today I was just hunting through my photo collection and I found a few photos of something I made ages ago and forgot to write about....
This was a slightly tricky item to make - I love the addition of tiles (printed on photo paper) I wanted a washstand and was pleased with how it turned out. Whether it stays this colour or will be changed is undecided yet....

I haven't written in this blog for so long. I am afraid my dolls house creating hasn't happened for a while now, but I have been thinking that I should get back to it a little and work on completing this gorgeous house...and also my children keep asking when is going to be finished so they can play with it!
The nursery is finally done - though I might add little bits and pieces.
I decided to buy a nursery set of chair, cot, walker and toys. They were a cheap set, not looking very nice
The chair got re-upholstered.
I decided to paint the cot
I made a cot duvet and pillow - embroidering the lettering myself.
I made the little rag doll from fabric bits and pieces...
The table and chair were bade with balsa wood, tooth picks and bannister spindles
The kitchen has also had a lot of work done.....since this picture was taken...
I have begun to make the kitchen cupboards, thought the actual cupboard doors are not done yet!
I have managed to get the dresser done though! This is my 2nd dresser...I LOVE making them!
....and I wanted a surround for it. I found one I really liked that cost £49.99!!!
Well I wasn't about to pay that much! Instead I used a sheet of balsa wood and some acrylic paint with some leftover brick paper....and totally guessing how to make it, I put together a surround - cost about £2 and at least it is unique!
Yes, I know there is only one utensil hanging there when there should be quite a few....seems my son likes to pretend to cook here and has 'misplaced' them!!! ;o)
