Not too tired to shop!

I wish I could say that a lot of progress has been made on my little French house since my last post, but alas.... this is not the case.

I have managed to get the skeleton of the second floor stair case done but I need to cut the wooden  steps and add the railing yet.

Last week we had a two day auction which always stresses me out, plus I thought I could slip in a side trip with some friends between the evening auction preview on the Friday night and the actually auction on the Sunday morning. Long days of auction prep. coupled with no sleep culminated into a disastrous evening out at a restaurant with my husband involving a pair of crab claw crackers, a cup of hot coffee and a cold ride home because he made me sit on my coat so I didn't stain the car seats. Add two stressful days of auctions and I have been a walking zombie.  Luckily, I did managed to shop.

I actually did put together a little Icelandic poppy kit (above) from Pascale Garnier while watching television last week.  The carpet is from Lavenderdilly on etsy.

 Again above, Lavenderdilly carpet and the laundry rack and basket plus gorgeous roses are ala Lea Frisoni at AtelierdeLea on etsy.

A bought the little chair from PetiteCollections on etsy as I thought it would match my settee made by Lea.

The lovely little crate is from Pipi Turner, whose site is beyond inspiring!  http://www.miniatures-pipiturner.com


It is less than a month to the London Dollhouse Festival and I am beyond excited. Unfortunately I have another two day auction to put together before then so no play time or days off in my immediate future.... unless I get sick...cough... cough.

  2. Hello Skuptress! It sounds like you had a lot of Ups and Downs in the last little while, but there is nothing like Shopping Therapy to make all of your troubles "disappear" :D Your purchases for your French House look quite Lovely and are just a taste of what is in store for you when you get to the London Dollhouse Festival. That is where you can really SHOP TILL YOU DROP! :D

  6. I love the items you have bought for your French house, they all look so pretty. Your house is coming along nicely as well. Don't be put off by small progress, it is always better than no progress at all.

  7. You are so right. I did manage to nibble away a bit this weekend on my upstairs landing. Although it is far from complete, it is a start.
