The first picture was taken with the lights on in the living room, so it has a definite pink cast (which I like so I have shown you anyway). The above photo taken from the kitchen shows the colour a bit more realistically. I am so glad I have found this curtain because I am really short of time at present!
I am working on the little boy's room now. I must say, I don't think I have made my job much easier for myself by having a boy's room in a shabby chic cottage.....a little girl's room would have been a darn sight easier! But there you are, this girl loves a challenge!!
I have made some built in shelves, which you can see in the background, and here is a gorgeous little train set I have had stashed away for ages. It wouldn't stay together at all until I glued all the pieces of track to a piece of very thin acetate. I glued the train on the track, and then cut the acetate away so that you couldn't see it. If you look closely you will see I have done a crappy job of the trimming - I'll come back to that job later. The "station" by the track is a lovely little "dollshouse for a dollshouse" made by Twelfth Dimension. I bought it a long time ago and am glad to have found it a good home. The little pull toy dog that you can see in the background was bought at the same time, and is identical to a real one my father bought me when I was three.
I am taking this little cottage to a big dollshouse show in two weeks time so I have a bit of work to do in the next two weeks, that's for sure!!
I haven't been able to get hold of Marta, who won the giveaway, so if any of you can help me make contact with her, that would be wonderful. I had a similar problem with the last giveaway....don't know why!!!
