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.

Vintage Dolls House Furniture

I've been collecting some more vintage furniture for my Lundby and Triang houses.  

Didn't have any rugs in my Lundby so bought these plus a couple of pictures from an Ebay seller.

Have been looking for a burgundy coloured bathroom suite as that was what we had in our real life house but this is the closest colour I could find.

Here it is in the house.

Spotted this complete set of Dol-Toi bedroom furniture on KT Miniatures website which actually includes a double bed and just had to buy it.  This is the only Dol-Toi double bed I have see so far, I think the dolls house furniture makers of the 50's and 60's didn't like mum and dad to sleep in the same bed, lol.
   
Also bought a rocking chair which matches the above set, a kitchen dresser with blue worktop and a very cute blue high chair and childs desk.

Bargain Miniature Toy Ships

I won both these gorgeous miniature ships on Ebay, The Mayflower is on the left and The Victory is on the right.   

They only cost £4 each plus P&P which I think is a bargain for such intricate work.




Here is a photo of The Victory in the boys room of The Priory.

Two New Julie Bennett Properties

Bought these two Julie Bennett properties from my friend Paula this week.

The little pink shop is now my icecream and sweet shop called 'Cones & Candy'.   

There isn't much space inside so I had to make the pink shelf unit from scratch to fit.   

 The other property has been done as a witches house called 'Cauldron Cottage'.  Paula made the kitchen and as it fits perfectly she left it in the house for me.  This will be my first fantasy themed project and should be a lot of fun to do.

Moving Houses Again

I've been moving my dolls houses around again.  My Classical is now next to The Priory and Lottie's Tea Room has taken the place of Magpies which is up for sale.  Lottie's Tea Room is now next to Jenny Wren's and there is even a parking space for my lovely 1/12th scale vintage car. 

I have decided that Jenny Wren's will now become an Edwardian hat and accessories shop so it will need a few changes as it was originally going to be a modern hairdressers.
