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.

Word Verification on Blog Comments.

Just wanted to let you all know that I think I have managed to disable the 'word verification' on comments made on my blog.

Here is the link on how to do it on your own blog so you will hopefully get more comments:

Please let me know if it works.

My New Business 'Dainty Dishes'

Haven't had any time for mini-ing lately as have been starting a new business venture.  I will be hiring out gorgeous vintage tea sets for special occasions eg. weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties etc, etc.  Have spent the past couple of weeks scouring Aberdeens charity shops and boot sales for the prettiest vintage bone china tea sets I could find.
Here is a link to my Facebook page as I still need to make a website:

My Home Made Tables.

Well here are my home made tables. Wanted 4 tables and as there were only 12 spindles in the pack I had to have 3 legged tables, lol. They will be covered with table cloths anyway so it won't look too odd. Now just need to find 8 matching chairs.

 Here is a photo looking in through the tea room window.

New flooring and making tables

Went to Hobbycraft today and bought new flooring paper for the tea room as the old paper was quite tatty.  It is the same only black and white instead of green and white.

Also found some small round wooden disks and a pack of DHE stair spindles which were in a box of sale items and am going to turn them into tables for the tea room :).

More items for the tea room

These items arrived today from MyTinyWorld, it is starting to look more like a tea room now :-).  Still trying to find some small round tables though, might have to try making some myself ;-).
