Little French house update

 Work continues on the Little French dollshouse albeit at a snail's pace.  The front windows are in and the roof sides are on. I am on the last stretch. As per my usual MO I did put the windows in backwards.  Nothing was lining up but that didn't stop me from persisting in trying to get them fitted.  Finally when it was all finished the light went on and I had to strip them all out and start from scratch. Sigh.
 Here is a shot of the dollshouse as it sits tonight with most of the work in the bedrooms completed.
 I still need to finish the stair railing in the littlest room.

 Floor is in the works for the this room.
I decided to treat myself and bought Alison Davies Miniatures French Folly. It is so beautiful.
 It arrived last week and it is enormous!! I have however decided it will be packed away until the little house is finished.


Alison also was kind enough to send some metal furniture kits for me to play with and I couldn't resist. Here they are completed. I decided to gild them and I love the little toile fabric!!  Her website is not taking any new orders until the end of February but I can't wait until she opens up as I need more little kits for the French house!

    1. Thank you! I think I had forgotten how much I love it and how good it is for my mental health. Time spent on this house is so enjoyable and I had let life get in the way.

  3. Oh it is looking so very lovely!! What a shame you had to do the windows twice, but a treat to see them all in.
