Paul finally fitted the portico yesterday , after having to mess about getting it level , which seems to be a constence issue with anything related to a dolls house.
So today i decided to go in search of what was left of my dolls house items, years back when I sold off my beautiful house with shop, I sold all the wonderful ooak artist made dolls and most of the good furniture. I did keep a few things and also when I loaned it to work I bought a few resin type people to stand inside, as it didn't have a front, looking like they were working on the empty place.
It was so interesting find just what I'd kept and stashed away from my original house.
I'd stored some items in a couple of small plastic boxes, this was the first one.
It had my lovely 1930's sofa, along with several food items and an odd cushion which I think belonged to a bed set.
The second box had quite a lot packed into it!
a great assortment of items!
a closer look
The bucket to the mop in the other box, some door furniture along with some cutlery.
This tiny handknitted baby coat.
This tiny handmade sampler
There was even a little baby I'd totally forgotten about.
These are two of the workmen I bought a few years back for the empty house loan.
Naturally around that time I started looking a doll house items and decided to buy this for if I went with a regency style again!
along with this fancy bed and
This oriental style display cupboard and
Side table? desk?
and just the one chair?
I feel that top display cabinet needs a little gold on the fancy parts. I do love the oriental rooms you see in big houses, so whether these will be used in this house I cannot say, but if so I made need some nice oriental wallpaper for that blue room or a room box to make a special setting.
More food items
A little tea set which may not be suitable for the house.
Also back when I was looking at dolls house items again I also bought this
A rug making kit.
Everything one needs to make a lovely rug for the dolls house!
and I know exactly when I bought it due to it still being in the box it arrived in! Well I was still working back then and the dolls house was on loan to work, then back in the shed !
But now it's getting finished, I've got the kit out and will start it once I finish the cardigan I'm working on.
Now there are some of the resin people missing along with a few items I bought then to make it look like work was being done and I think I kept my daughters dolls house people who were dressed in 1940's 50's style, so I'm just off to search for them!
