I began writing this blog as a way to record my progress renovating an old Dolls House Emporium Classical dolls house which I built from a kit in the 1980's. It has now evolved into a blog about my ever increasing collection of dolls houses and the items I buy and make to put in them.

Hope you enjoy it.

Magpies & Jenny Wrens

Woohoo - my new Dolls House Emporium quickstyle kits have arrived but I won't be able to build them until after christmas as I've too much other stuff to do before then. Here is a link to some photos: http://www.dollshouse.com/dhe/dolls-house-gallery.aspx?house=magpies
As they are quickstyle they are already fully painted so at least that is one less thing to do.

Renovation project finished

Woohoo, I've finally finished renovating the dolls house that I bought for my daughter to play with.

I repainted the outside walls and windows to brighten it up and put acetates in the windows and door to give it a more realistic look.
Stripped all the old wallpaper and flooring out and primed it ready for some new decor.Added some curtains for a homely feel.Have now decided to sell it though as Charlotte isn't really that interested and it's not the sort of dolls house I would want for myself. Instead I have gone and ordered the Dolls House Emporium Magpies and Jenny Wren's quickstyle kits as a christmas pressie to myself ;).

Miniature Christmas cards & Advent calendar

Added some Christmas cards and an Advent calendar which were cut outs from one of the dolls house magazines this month (can't remember which one as I buy all three).
Had to cut out the tiny doors on the calendar so only went up to the 9th as that is my daughters birthday :).
Looking at this last photo makes me realise that the wall paper in this house really needs updating as it is now over 20 years old.

A Miniature Christmas

Thought I'd do a little bit of Christmas decorating in the dolls house.
