As promised a few new pictures of the Georgian Dolls' House. These are the master bedroom, dining room and one of the attic bachelor bedrooms.
Firstly, the dining room. I don't think I have done much at all to this room since last year. The silver STILL needs cleaning!! I need to get myself a miniature butler! I think I am happy with the furniture in this room, I might change some accessories over time, but am in no hurry. I do want to change the handles on the central sideboard drawers, as I have some which match those on the sides somewhere. I need to make some drapes for the windows too, which is no surprise!! I really must just go for it and see what happens! I haven't found a prety pleater anywhere, so will try the knitting needle and pins method. I have got as far as pulling the silk fabric back out of the cupborad, so there is some progress!! ;o)
I do like this master bedroom. There are several things I still need to buy/make for this room, but am happy with the progress. I really want some Birds of Paradise prints for the wall by the bed, something postage stamp size. I tried printing some off the Mac, but they just looks awful, so have been scouring old magazines and gallery leaflets for anything suitable, I have some a little too big in an old Sotheby's catalogue, so might use those, we shall see. There are also bed covers, bed curtains and Austrian blind to make!!!!!!!
I was really pleased with this little inlaid bedside cabinet (McQueenie Miniatures) which looks just right in this room. I also snapped up this little jug with a posy of wild flowers inside (the Flower Lady), looks like the lady of the house has been out for a walk in the near-by meadows.
And here is a shot of the two rooms together.
This is one of the attick rooms, which is finally starting to look like a bedroom! I think of this as the Lord of the Manor's bedroom, as the master bedroom is far too flowery for his tastes! I found the fabric on the bed at a dolls house show a little while back which I thought was perfect as a woolen blanket, just have to make it! I can see I will need to do the sewing for this house before too long, or it will never get finished! (mind you, do dolls' houses EVER really get finished?)
I hope you are all having a good week so far. Bye for now.
