I think we all know that by now so lets move on.
So a lot has been accomplished with the dollhouse and I've just been lazy and haven't blogged about it. So what we'll have here is a lot of pictures. I hope you like pictures because I don't have a lot of anything else for you.
Sorry, I'm allergy/sick and tired and I'm feeling snippy.
On the plus side you all benefit from my lack of creativity because I normally would spend this time writing. After this post I intend to do some cleaning and get my brain working again. I'll show you why tomorrow. I think. We'll see.
So last time I was showing you the dining room and the hallway/entryway. Still feeling pretty pleased with those.
I think this time we'll look at the parlor/living room. Did they call it a parlor in Victorian times? Oh, and I mentioned last time that there were no curtains yet? That's through out the house folks. These dolls are remaining fully clothed at all times. Don't want to alarm the neighbors. (Or my strange calico who remains fascinated by dollhouse doings.)
|We're all set up for coffee and cake.|
|Don't be fooled. Those cakes aren't edible. And those pictures? They like to leap off the wall. That's right folks. I have the only dollhouse in the world with its own poltergeist.|
|So the upright piano/organ is a music box from my grandmother. It still works. The lamp is battery operated. Looks pretty when its dark.|
|The little leaves will actually flip up and stay that way to make it larger. And I fell in love with the little bric a brac holder in the corner. And look! I figured out how to fill in the door space with the marble floors!|
|And You can see my knick knacks and the pretty ship picture that was one of the first things I bought for the house. Still love how it looks.|
|So I think my favorite is the flagstone floors. Table, chairs, sink(w/pump) and icebox are from my Grandmother.|
The vegetable basket, salad and sack of potatoes have been with me since my grandmother's dollhouse. As well as all the canned goods you can sort of see on the shelves.
|See? It looks so bare without those shelves on the walls. I'm unreasonably happy with the placement of the cookie jar though. It has cookies in it and it has to be high enough to stay out of reach. There's a child in the house after all!|
|The rug is one of the first things I bought for the dollhouse.|
Soo... There we have it. I'm going to check this, post it and then...get started on the next post. That way I won't throw too much at you all at once.
Hopefully another post tomorrow if all goes well. Hugs, kisses, good night and good luck.
Oh, and one last picture, of the aforementioned crazy calico.
|Mommy, this porch isn't big enough for me. Start over.|
