OTT with the tiling

Standard

As one gets older, trying to sort out accrued possessions is so time consuming but I did make a quick dash to mini-land and took some shots of last evenings doings.

Still have the doors (one to the room and one to the airing cupboard), a small storage cupboard and shelf to make for the angle in the door corner and possibly a linen box too.

Lots of fiddling little to show for it

Standard

The lots

  • tiled the window cill
  • gussied up the so called pelmet area
  • finished dressing/decorating the very narrow walls each side that form the room opening to the outside
  • added further tiling in both white and black strips to bring out a more Deco appearance

such as it is

Must take that packet of Efferdent out of the wash basin before it goes soggy!

Am, at present trying to throw together a tiled box-shaped end to the bath, as the bath does not come up to the end, opening, wall.  Then I might add the odd bit and piece of evidence of life there as well.  Must put the single row of white and narrow band of black round the bath area to match up.  Off I go …

Quick dash – interim report

Something like this?

Well, not quite like this first photo.

Her embarrassment was so great I just had to do that skirt, well, and then the sleeves, belt and earings too. Here, posing, her skirt is ballooned out as she has been sitting for some time.

She’s come for a nice chat over a cup of tea

but if she doesn’t take care she’ll have poured it all over the place

Handbag to be made and everything to be fixed down with the missing milk and knife added too.  Still waiting on the odd bit for the bureau and must do the photos for the bookshelves.  Oh, and find the charcoal for the coal bucket.

Must dash – have a good weekend 😉

Hiding out from the last of the sorting

Standard

and my excuse is that I’m testing the existing and proposed lighting in the dolls house.
