This is my new project.







I never had a doll's house as a child and always wanted one, we picked up this beauty of freecycle and it came with a huge bag of furniture.


So I shall have fun cleaning and restoring it.

  1. That's fantastic! How lucky are you. So much fun to be had decorating and designing. I am so envious. I'd love to do something like that but first I need to decorate my own house. X

  5. just lovely. I have one very similar. Or had, should I say. Bill bought it for me and I was going to decorate it over the years, then Violet arrived and I gave it to her. Like you, I didn't have a dolls' house when I was little, but I couldn't keep it for myself and not let Violet have it. She has a few, actually. I think I overcompensate for lack of stuff in my childhood. That's why she has three playhouses in the back garden. I always wanted one, never got one.

    I digress. Looking forward to seeing pics of your house as you make changes. Such a lovely hobby.
    Thank you for answering my Q about survey sites. Some I hadn't heard of so shall take a look. Love getting rewarded just for voicing my opinion!

    1. I know what you mean when you say about overcompensating, I was the same. I problably won't get chance to do too much before Christmas, but I will show you when I get around to it, x

  6. Wow what a project! We've got one down the cellar from my daughter's early days, now on the verge of getting it out for our eldest granddaughter who's 2. My daughter was very particular with it. She made rugs to match the fablon walls. Trouble is making room for it all!

    1. That will be nice for the granddaughter to have something what has been in the family, I am already planning the curtains.

  7. How brilliant - what fun you will have. I did have a dolls house when I was little - home made of course as all wooden toys were back in the 1950s and loved making chests of drawers out of matchboxes - That was about my creative limit!

  8. I missed this post! My granddaughter has the same one. She loves moving the stairs around.......I get frustrated that her layout doesn't make sense. But then she is only 4!
