fixtures and fitting

I received a souldering iron from my husband this weekend and have started the task of extending all the wire for the lighting in my dollhouse. Two lights down and then I knocked the iron off the table and made the mistake of trying to retrieve it before it hit the ground. Now I have lovely little bubbles on my thumb and index finger, so that task was suspended for a while and I decided to try putting the walls and furniture roughly in the house. The house is a lot smaller than I thought it would be, especially the kitchen. I think I need to rethink the stove I had planned for it.


  1. It looks lovely! Dolls houses have odd perspective I think. The outside always looks bigger than you expect and the rooms smaller. If only it were the other way around!

  2. Thanks so much Christine. I think you are right about the perspective, the house looks so large from the outside. I so wish I had done a few things differently to start with.

  3. That's the song we all sing once the dollhouse starts coming together :-). I suppose you could add a basement and put the kitchen down there (room for servants' dining hall and scullery too...or a Butler's pantry....).......
