Dollhouse kits

Happy New Year to everybody. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. We had a wonderful family Christmas with four generation represented!

I wanted to share my little dollhouse kits that I received just after Christmas. They are from Artofmini.com, who, in my opinion have the very best dollhouse kits and accessories!

This is their little French desk kit to which I added tiny Swarovski crystal beads for the drawer handles. Also the little hat box kit as well as the French books in pink. Oh, and the laurel wreath kit, so fun to make.

On the top of the desk is my Mike Sparrow sterling silver fountain pen... the top is actually removable!! Note the drop of coffee in my Stokesay ware cup lol. That wasn't as easy as it appears to get situated without spilling.
I also bought their little French hall table to go in the front hall of my Lea Frisoni little French dollhouse.  I did manage to do a mild crackle finish on the top which I am pleased with.  I may do some more distressing with stain at some point but will wait until I am ready to decorate the house with it's furnishings. The clock is a kit from Artofmini.com too.
I did buy a few other little kits too ( Well I was paying for the postage anyway so...)
I will post them on my blogspot as they are completed.

I have recently started a course in Real Estate as well as my full time job so the house is on hold again or at least moving at as snails pace. These little kits give me near instant gratification and makes me feel like I haven't completely abandoned my little house.

Hope everyone has a great week and stays warm. I will try and do the same. Bye for now.
