Bank Holiday Monday

We spent yesterday with friends: Carol and Simon and their daughter Rosie, and Jim, at Jim's new house ... decorating!

The boys papered part of the living room wall while Carol supervised

It seemed a bit labour intensive!!!
But they do did a reasonable job!

Meanwhile, Rosie and I kept out of their way, concentrating on another house ...

A felt dolls house will be going to Australia for Christmas, for my niece, India.  I had already made a desk and chair

and two beds

and yesterday I made a fridge and a basin

... while Rosie made most of an oven and sink unit

Did I mention? Rosie is eleven!

How impressive is that?

(If you are interested, the instructions for the dolls house came from Umecrafts.ETSY.com, she does a whole range of awesome stuff and sells the instructions)


  1. The dolls house furniture is great!!

    The decorating looked like a scene from '60 Second Makeover', but I suspect it took longer!!

  2. I love remodeling! We've remodeled 4 houses in the 40 years we've been married. One of those was a 100 year old Victorian house. That one kept us busy but I adored that house!
    I also love the little felt furniture. Tell Rosie that I'm impressed. She did a great job!!!

  3. I didn't know people still used wallpaper. It looks great. I love the stripes.

    What a sweet gift for your niece. She is going to love that doll house, even more so since you made it yourself! Adorable. :)
